Some people just freak out about any change. Most players are just tired of the crummy little jackpots Powerball has been offering for a long time now. A game with the odds that Powerball has should have much larger pots instead of what would be a normal state lottery.
Not the issue. At least, not for me, and evidently not for CT decision makers.
The issue is whether the States participating in an agreement with PB have right, reason, responsibility, to their citizenry to oversee changes PB (and MM) and be consulted prior to those changes, rather than being presented with fait accompli of this sort.
Half the people who post on these threads have expressed a litany of complaints about the Texas Lottery folk and their unwillingness to consider user input. Here's a situation where the users are sufficiently represented by official bodies to have that input, to assure they have it in the future.
A person might as appropriately regard the people of Texas as 'freaking out' because their lottery changed the manner of estimating jackpot payoffs as to suggest that CT debating PB changes qualifies as 'freaking out'.
