Comparing jackpot size to other states is fairly pointless. OF COURSE the jackpot s smaller. Um, population size, you think?

I think this is a great development for Arkansas players. It really stinks that they can't have real lottery drawings, but at least there is now an in-state jackpot game offering much better odds. 

Every state should offer at least one game like this (I agree with the comments about Oklahoma needing a game like this).

I agree, any game that pays $1.00 for a 2of5 gets my vote.  These small prizes can add up and make a

big difference over time.  I have read of a few people from Arkansas winning the MO-539.  I think in Japan

they have a 5-31 that plays accross the entire nation so JP's run in the millions and it draws twice a week. 

I would love to see something like that in the US.

I will consider the opinion that my winnings are a product of chance if you are willing to consider

they are not.  Many great discoveries come while searching for something else

    I love Mass Cash (5/35) because it costs only $1 and if you want, you can double, triple, quadriple the jackpot to whatever number you want up to a certain limit. There have been instances where people played their numbers 10 times in the same draw and hit 10 times. Thats a cool $1M right there. I'd go crazy.

    That money's gone fo ever

      I was surprised we even got a game like this since our population is so small. I am stil waiting on them to do another million dollar raffle though.

        Glad you had a good laugh RL.  Stretch

        I'm just amazed that with just a few calls, you can light a firecracker under the pants of these lotto officals.

        Maybe that's how this last guy became president.  What?

        "Maybe that's how this last guy became president.  What?"

         

        Hmm, dozen of people called and asked for a new game?

         

        I think I know the name of the game they were asking, 700B Giveaway with the odds 1 : 0.005 

         

        It was well played, I heard.

                Every few months I hear about some player who played scored $200-600K, because they played their numbers multiple times.

                These types of prizes are giving MM's second place prizes a run for their money.

                 

                Compare the odds: Mass Cash: 1:324,632  vs  MegaMillions: 3,904,701

                  With all the lottery problems Arkansas has had to deal with, just maybe this will be a turning point for the better.
