          I think the lottery counts on the fact that most lottery players have no idea what the odds are. Most players only care about the two most visible things. Jackpot and ticket price.

              I Agree! With ticket price being a distant second. Green laugh

                  even if they raised them tickets to $5.00 each just like gas prices people may moan but they will still buy them because Lottery players are Winners Hurray!

                    This week the jackpot for both of these 6 ball games is $12,000,000.00 look at the difference in odds.

                    That is a prime example why many in-state lottery games will be that much more appealing once MM raises their odds

                            Let's see, there is 316,000,000 people in the U.S.  The odds of winning are 258,900,000 to one. So if you were to eliminate

                            the population of California...  And then, if every single person in the country bought one ticket apiece with different #'s. You

                            would have one winner. Just putting the odds in perspective...   At that rate why even bother buying a ticket?  What?

                            The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.

                            Don't just think outside the box, crush it.

                              you guys are funny...I saw somebodys signature that says "Never argue with stupid people they only bring you down to their level"but on the outside looking in it's funny to me.and some people pick fights with other posters just for attention and/or for their posts to go up..everybody that's a top poster doesn't always post things of value it's sometimes ignorant toe crushing comments all for the joy of an argument.Green laughwell it was fun reading the last few comments now im going to get back to making money off these states..I agree with someone that said even if the tickets go up like gas there will be people that buy those tickets so we can boycott but while we sit out others will be buying and winning.Make money people.PeaceLOL

                              Pay less, win more & world peaceSee Ya!
