Good point, Faber98.  This change makes it even much hard to win even a small price.   I have been playing "lucky for life" for a year or so, even never hit 3 numbers, seems it is time to stop playing it.

    Even worse, the payoffs for the lesser prizes are not going to change much, if at all.  I had to go to Vermont's website and view a draft rules change pdf (here) to find the changes - the payoffs are on page 14:

    5+1 $7,000/wk for life (no change)
    5+0, $25,000/yr for life (the only major change, from a single $25,000 payment)
    4+1, $3,000 (increased $1,000 from $2,000)
    4+0, $150 (increased $50 from $100)
    3+1, $100 (increased $50 from $50)
    3+0, $10 (no change)
    2+1, $20 (increased $5 from $15)
    2+0, $2 (no change)
    1+1, $5 (no change)
    0+1, $4 (no change)

    As much as I've shunned it (only played once in many years, and that was a mistake ticket for the wrong game), Megabucks Doubler is starting to look like a better option here in MA for my jackpot betting money.

      This is amazing! For sure players will definitely love to give it a shot. The winners don't need to worry about being bankrupt. However of course they still need to handle their finances wisely.
