I looked at the sales data and made a plot of it. The Sales had been in steady decline since launch, I guess some of that is expected for a new game. But with this recent cancellation and any bad feelings if they come back with limiting combos, the sales may suffer even further.

With that said, I wouldn't mind seeing this All or Nothing game here in CA. It's got better payout and an interesting playstyle compared to other draw games, perfect for replacing our awful Daily Derby $2 game. Maybe not 4 times a day though. And ours would be pari-mutuel from the get go, with rollover, starting small like $100,000 and building higher on each roll based on sales.

AllorNothing

From 9/10/12 through 6/1/13 before the shutdown, it had $62,520,970 sales and $36,672,564 in prizes. Over 228 play days with 4 draws per day saw 29 Jackpots, 1 of them a double all+nothing hit on 5/25/13. The game is designed to pay out about 56% in prizes, but at the end of this (relatively) short period paid it out 58.66% which is due to several more lucky jackpots than statistics would predict. If you take out a couple of the jackpots towards the ending and beginning of the game, it is right back to the 56% payout it should have.

That was a very big spike in payout for I suppose was it one draw?  They definately crapped their pants.

    I don't think the extra pay out for a single day hurt they too much.
