Well, Florida won't be able to join Mega Millions, and even if they could they'd probably still join PB to get Georgia players over the border. Of course, joining Powerball would necessitate an overhaul of draw nights. Lotto would need to move to Tuesdays and Fridays, and Mega Money would need to move to Mondays and Thursdays. At least that's what they'd need to do to keep people playing on those games. And anyway, with these required higher payouts, what will Florida do about Powerball, which will continue paying 50%. Maybe put the extra 10% in a bonus fund for Powerball promotions, like a occasional PowerPlay doubler where 2x means 4x, 5x means 10x, that kind of thing. Oh, I'm getting the shakes just thinking about the idea of PowerPlaying back home in Tampa (where speaking of PowerPlays, is home to the World Champion Tampa Bay Lightning, GO BOLTS!).

That solution would be great.  A major lotto game almost on every night. 

How are you going to win if you don't play?
