2.00 a line x 4 per day x5 if you play full board=32.00 a day x 7=224.00 a week to play this game if you play a full board for a week . a little to steep even for oil rich texans. even 1 line a day x4x7=56.00 a week or 224.00 a month. i'm sorry but this game won't sell. payouts for 7-8 over or 4-5 under won't be gppd enough as these will be the most common hits. and the dreaded 6 will come up too often on your tickets. pass. correction no payoff at all for 5,6, or 7. this game will bankrupt the already bankrupted texas citizens.

I can't wait for this game to start. 

Since flights connect through DFW airport with LONG layovers, I suppose that we fill find our way to a lottery ticket sales area either in or around the airport. 

This is hitting all of our radar cuz it is something different.

    Will have to check the Texas website to see if I calculated the odds correctly.

     combination size             12
     basic pool size              24
     (B) bonus numbers            none
     smallest match               0
     tickets or chances per draw  1
     possible combos of 12/24 numbers = 2704156
     MATCH    ODDS            WINNING COMBOS  ODDS 1 CHANCES
    12/12    1 : 2704156        1              1 : 2704156
    11/12    1 : 18779          144            1 : 18779
    10/12    1 : 621            4356           1 : 621
     9/12    1 : 56             48400          1 : 56
     8/12    1 : 11             245025         1 : 11
     7/12    1 : 4              627264         1 : 4
     6/12    1 : 3              853776         1 : 3
     5/12    1 : 4              627264         1 : 4
     4/12    1 : 11             245025         1 : 11
     3/12    1 : 56             48400          1 : 56
     2/12    1 : 621            4356           1 : 621
     1/12    1 : 18779          144            1 : 18779
     0/12    1 : 2704156        1              1 : 2704156
     ______________________________________________________________

    My calculation is that average for 2 USD wagering, the player loses 0.880353 USD.

    2 USD ticket
    1.119647 USD won
    0.880353 USD loss

    ScoreP()
    120,00000037
    110,00005325
    100,00161085
    90,01789838
    80,09061053
    70,23196295
    60,31572735
    50,23196295
    40,09061053
    30,01789838
    20,00161085
    10,00005325
    00,00000037

    Probability of no prize: 0.77965324 = 78%
    Probability of break even: 0.18 = 18%
    Probability of win: 0.03912570 = 3.9%

      Good luck to the players in this game. I didn't know why they have 4 drawings 6 days a week.

        It seems like most new state games are trending to $2 now.

        At a play rate of 4 times a day though, I think they would have been wiser to start this particular game at $1.

          Yeah, I agree 'ridge. Playing the possible minimum of $2 on every draw, and every day, adds up pretty darn quick!!!! I don't think there will be drawings on Sundays, so, this deal will run an over anxious player about $200 in the run of a month. For me, I'm just gonna get one $2 dedicated set of numbers and simply run them once per day. I can definitely afford this, and, see where I have a very, very good chance of recovering that money at some point...maybe even hitting the $500.

          This is one of those games where a player's money needs to be spread out and compiled with patience and common sense. As I said before, the same numbers are gonna get you closer to winning big whether it's most, or, none of them. As I've studied, though, with having to choose (12), a player actually stands a much better chance of matching all of the numbers than none or even (1). This is why I'm gonna remain consistent...the combinations will constantly change and hopefully mine will be drawn sooner than later.

            I believe my last sentence follows suite with exactly what the lady in Virginia just accomplished. She stayed true to the same numbers when she played and it payed off in a big way for her. I'm seeing where any change in her numbers, and consistency, would've completely disrupted her win altogether. Again, it's so much easier to win on the smaller games with a reasonable set of numbers played consistently. Pre-draws can't just keep drawing the same formats or numbers over and over for days on end. Can't miss your format(s) forever...gotta pull 'em at some point. Then, you win. The more pressure you put on the draw process the better...and sometimes it can happen instantly while other times may require several draws. The formats, however, MUST ABSOLUTELY CHANGE.

              I'll play the game only once everyday, but will stop playing other games, so I can use that money to have a better chance to win. I hope I get all the numbers or none at all, so I can win the $250,000  prize. $500.00 doesn't sound too bad either.US Flag

                Buy one chance and see, if you can win and then use your winnings to buy more chances . Once you win you are ahead and only use the money you have won to play and you lose nothing in the long run.Bed

                  You could wind up spendin' a lotta money on that game. 

                  Makes you wonder if there's anything better to spend that money on in Texas?

                  A haw, haw, haw, haw

                  Well, I hear it's fine if you got the time

                  And the ten to get yo-self in

                  But now I might be mistaken
