"Until recently, state lotteries have been continually increasing the Pick-6 matrices, apparently hoping that lottery players wouldn't notice that their chances of winning were being drastically reduced with each subsequent increase.

But as the lottery players in Texas have shown, eventually it gets to a point where people say, "enough is enough, " and just stop buying tickets."

I already voiced my opinion above, but I wanted to say I Agree!

    NY Lotto "needs" a smaller matrix than 6/59. What NY Lotto REALLY needs is a 50% payback.

      I agree that Texas Lotto should go back to 6/54 format. Also, I agree with JimmySand9 think Texas should also have a bonus ball out of the remaining 48 balls to ensure that people can win if they match 2+bonus. I knew it that Texas having a bonus ball [5+1] flopped like what Washington did.

      Everyone, here's my question. When does Texas Lotto go back to 6/54 format? Otherwise, I have to get the Texas lotto frequency and draw analysis in a word document.
