Here's what I don't understand:  if Vermont is going to sell Mega Millions (and don't get me wrong, I hope they do!)...then why haven't I heard anything from the Vermont Lottery or any other news source save for the CNN Money article posted here earlier this month?  Their web site and the local news outlets have been silent on the matter, and thus far these two articles have been the only evidence I've seen that Mega Millions is coming to my home state.

So, Vermont Lottery:  if you've got it, why not flaunt it?

The info on which states are in or out comes directly from MUSL, so I am sure the info is correct and Vermont is simply taking extra time gearing up for it.  I would agree that they should be flaunting it loudly.

    They finally have an announcement on the official Idaho lottery site about Mega Millions, but they really don't seem to be advertising it much.

        Woohoo! I'm ready for MM! They've already got the play slips out, and I've hoarded some to add to my collection. lol

        What are pay slips? Do you just fill them out if you win, or do you use them to pick your numbers?

              taxas was the beta test for MM trying out Megaplier, it worked out REAL will for them

              plus the fact all the new states adding mm have been playing PB sense forever , that has a mutiplier already , they already "get it"

               

              does indeed make the current old mm states without it look near stupid thro, give them time,maybe they come around LMAO

               

              and i like to say, god bless jan 31st , the day we welcome 2 nation level lotto's

              , i have been waiting for this day for some time, its so near, 

              and whats that in  the air, is that sound  jackpots growing?  i think am falling in love already

               

              hopeful both current  pb and mm  jackpots will keep rolling to start of next monrth, so we can TEST how fast we can grow these jackpots in record time highs,

               

              makes me want to play

                  Living near the VA border I've been playing both games for a while now but it'll be nice to have MM with the Megaplier in TN.

                  I'll still have to go to VA to play cash5 though.

                  It'll be interesting to see what VA does with their P6 now - Win For Life, cuz it plays Wed and Sat same as PB. I'd like to see them drop it and start some kind of a new lotto game and have it on Mondays and Thursdays.

                      Hello everyone, will they be adding more numbers to choose from on the lottery slips?

                          Jan 31 can't come soon enough for me.  Sun Smiley  Powerball back in Georgia again! 

                          Yes we had Powerball in Georgia a short while in the mid '90's then dropped it for the Big Game which morphed into Mega Millions.

                          Good luck to everyone!
