I perused the RI Lottery website and found that Stop N Shop has sold a considerable amount of Powerball prizes. I didn’t check Mega Millions and State Lottery games though. Seems like a good place to play, or maybe they sell more tickets at these locations ……….. I wonder if the laws of probability are in play here!

    The focus group were the players that responded to a survey by the KY Lottery's Fun Club. I filled out one last week and got a free Five Card Cash coupon. Each month they send out promotional coupons to all the club members.

    The game is getting lots of play so maybe the players want better odds of winning something on a $2 ticket. Don't know if they are ex-PB players or not.

      I remember that Ohio had a similar game back in the early 1990s - but it appeared that they drew one card from each suit instead of five random cards. I believe the first drawing was on 07-30-1990 and the last drawing was on 05-02-1992.

      Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

      In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

        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.

        Oh no, faber98, I hope that MegaMillions doesn't go through with this price raise ever; since I prefer to budget pay only $2 commitment, per drawing (which includes the Megaplier option cost)!
