Are you kidding me? Players were complaining about the $2 ticket cost, and you think that they will spend $3 for a single line. It is insane to do that man.

Insane to spend an extry buck for an extry million?

Not to mention 40K instead of 10K for 4 + 1.

Not to me, Jim.

I only play two lines so it's only a couple extry bucks.

It's only money.

    Actually, you aren't supposed to play the powerplay when the jackpot reaches a certain amount.  It's something like 80 mil, I think.  So, yes, it is insane.  If you are one of the people that win a million, then you win a million, that's it, congrats, but you aren't supposed to powerplay at this point.

    Oh, I forgot to include: when you don't powerplay, you're supposed to just buy multiple tickets.

      im glad we dont have it here.  way i see it is , all the losing tickets, and i have many, are paying for the winning tickets to get more. let them pay for their own prizes. id still rather 2x as many chances. but thats just me. also we have quite a few under 41 entries out here. the min entry is 4 lines, but that only cost $2.20c , so its 55c a game,

      our power ball is 65c a line and the only big game we have is a 7 from 45 that costs $1.20 ea. i think i would really quit that one if ity went to power play of sorts.

      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

              You are blasting shotgun style like everybody else. Lottery players played heavily last night.

                  You have to learn to play your own jackpot or play less often.

                    $3 for a single line is out of this world. Hell no, hell no. Okay that's enough.

                              I am saying I would like a nice prize on saturday night.  Either the $40,000 or the $2 million or the Jackpot.  I would also settle for a $200 win if the jackpot rolled over for wednesday night too.  Good luck to you Mcginnin!-weshar75
