I went to the Pittsburgh Auto Show yesterday ......... expensive automobiles are not just expensive ............... they are full of the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. This is why the Jackpot was invented ............... that's the way that I see it.

Pennsylvania is overdue for our first big winner in Mega Millions tonite! Dance

    Most of the instant wins are 2.00 for the 2.00 you get a copy of your "winning" ticket to play for the night's drawing and another free ticket.  This game is like scratch offs on steroids.  I personally do not think it is worth the price of the game.  They need more 100,000.00 winners to convince me otherwise. 

    Of course!  Most lottery wins of ANY game are the lowest-tier prize!  What lottery game out there DOESN'T have the most wins in the lowest tier of prize?  That's why big winners are rare and celebrated!  (Like the guy who won in this story.)

    Understood that you don't personally like the game, but it is nice to see a different game offering multiple ways to win -- both instantly and later that evening.

      By the way, this article shared an encouraging win for this online "opinion provider" who appreciated the concept of this game before it was tangible.

        I sort of like the game, but it's the first lottery game I've played where the odds of against winning anything goes up after I buy a ticket. Even with that it's still a better buy than $2 scratch-offs.

          yeah i like the idea of cards/ poker style game, and the scratcher/ lotto tie in. but yeah not the odds  very much. also there isnt any statement on how the winning " cards " are drawn, random? or machine. and is it based on tickets sold. ie if threy know they sold,only  AAAKK so they make sure not to draw it?

          i dunno but rigginng seems a lot easier if you can control what numbers people will get on their cards.

          2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

          keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

            Anybody following the new game that will day-view this March 11, called "Lucky For Life". Six New England states will be participating. My state of NH will be phasing out a crappy game called 'Weekly Grand". Both games are for $2/ticket. Top prize will be $1,000 a day for life (twenty years).

            Some decent lower tier prizes ($25,000, $2,000, $100, $50, $5, $4, $2).

            You select 5 numbers from pool of 40; and one lucky ball from pool of 21.

            Drawings will be twice a week Monday and Thursday nights.

            I'm definitely getting some action on this game!    Banana

            Played this a bunch of times in CT and won nothing. I'll try the new game now that the odds are cut in half. It was 4 numbers. Are they moving it up to five??

              Next time I pass thru KY enroute to Harrah's casino in Metropolis I may give this new game a try.

              Overall it sounds like a ripoff but I do like that at least they are trying something new.

              Sort of reminds me of SC's palmetto 5 game where the top prize is always only 100,000 unless you pay for the multiplier. Give me a rolling jackpot game any day over a set jp!

              Knowing the horrid scratchoff prizes in KY, $2 for a ticket isn't bad at all.

              I'll consider buying one of these, but first and foremost comes MM and PB multi draw tickets since everyone knows TN never wins SQUAT from those games!

                  The "Lucky For Life", as far as I know is a brand new game, so there are no older odds. Are you referring to the older "Weekly Grand" game?

                            it will soon be going to 2.00 in march or may. it was announced last fall, but they haven't been republcizing it in order to satiate the powerball price raise objectors. so get it now. the 1.00 and a dream promo will soon be just a fond memory.

                              Powerball goes up $10,000,000 again. It is not catching up to Mega Millions!
