    Ohio had a 100 numbers matrix for their Lot'O Play game(0-99) for a while when they switched from the Super Lotto  game(6/49+1) but changed again to Classic Lotto(6/49) when people lost interest in playing.  If PB was going to change anything it would probably be the numbers of bonus numbers.

    I was thinking maybe something like that, RJOh, more than one bonus number.

    5 + 1 + 1 = Jackpot

    5 + 1 + 0 = a smaller % of JP, or something similar.

    If it does change at all, it will be to the advantage of the lottery, not the player.

    bobby623,

    Despite what the head of the Texas lottery said, but I'll believe it when I see it. When California joined Mega Millions, the matrix changed. I'm with Guru101 on this.

    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

    Lep

    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

      This is really gonna accelerate jackpot growth. Lotto fever might be a  seasonal illness rather than once every few years.

        I just don't think I could bear it with him on tv and everywhere else doing that "Winning!" thing again.

        ohhh lol I forgot about #winning.

          You gotta be kidding me!   California wins enough as it is  without powerball.  I can't put into words how I feel about this here,  as I would probably get shown the door!  You ain't getting any of my money california!Mad

            I think this might be actually good! Maybe the jackpot will increase more than the standard $10 million increments before the jackpot reaches over $100 million with more $ coming in. The game is still difficult to win so when it does get up there it will get up there sooner hopefully

                    I think chill pills may be avaiable at the LP gift shop for a nominal charge.   Wink

                            Coke needs Pepsi and Pepsi needs coke. Lets just get this thing all ramped up and make Powerball and Mega millions national.

                            only 6 states not playing powerball, why not get them all in!

                              Good idea... Mandatory lottery. Why not have each persons paycheck deducted so that each and every person receives a $10. Qp....What?  And of course the less fortunate would also get one. (without paying)
