    Monopoly is here in New Mexico and I will definitely give it a shot. The drawing is held just once a week, so the $5 investment/week will be well worth a shot at $1 million.

      I'll probably try it a couple times just to get into the excitement of a new game.

       

      Have they stated if the jackpot is annuity or cash payout? I can't seem to find that anywhere.

          The advertised amount is an annuity but there is a cash option too....same as Mega Millions (5% graduated, 30-year). All $1 million prizes are cash.

          If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
          If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

              "Meanwhile, smaller multi-state lotteries are mushrooming across the nation, such as Iowa and Minnesota's All or Nothing game, which started in January, and New Jersey's Cash for Life, which New York is joining on Oct. 20. Lucky for Life, which began in Connecticut and expanded to five other New England states in 2012, expects to be available in at least 14 more states by spring."

                will debut this weekend in some U.S. states.

                This is a odd way to start. Bobby Patel said i couldn't buy a ticket until Tuesday which i thought was strange until his cousin Michael Patel confirmed it.

                Good catch Mediabrat.

                  I had no idea they were doing that. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucky_For_Life. Apparently Idaho is joining in. Now this is something I might be interested in playing. Thanks for the heads up.

                  "On January 25, 2015, Lucky for Life, which began as a Connecticut-only game six years prior, is expected to become available in other regions of the United States.[citation needed] It is expected to grow to 21 lotteries on that date. New participants are to include Arkansas, Idaho, Texas, and the District of Columbia."

                    Like all similar Pick 5 games, this too, is like playing the slots.  You cannot gain a statistical advantage over the house.

                    Also, like all similar Pick 5 games, buying one set of numbers is about the same as buying 100 set of numbers.

                    You have to play to win though.  Be smart!  Buy your $5.00 ticket and hope that fate is on your side.

                    Good Luck!

                      Does anyone know what the odds of winning the Florida lottery are? If the odds are similar to this, I'll never play the monopoly game. $5 per ticket seems excessive when there's a cap of $25 million.

                      I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

                      The odds are about the same.

                        I'll give it a try, more Million dollar winners sounds good to me.

                          The odds of winning the top prize are 1 in about 72 million. Powerball odds are one in about 175 million and Mega Millions is about 1 in 258 million, Hargrove said.

                          The odds of winning the top prize per dollar spent aren't really that much different.

                            Maybe if it was $2 but $5 is a ripoff.

                              Yup $2 would be about right.  All you math majors out there.......................$5 for 1 in 75M  vs. 1$ for 1 in 175M oh but I forget that for $3  you have better odds in Mega  and for $5 Mega you have better than twice the $5 on monopoly.  Save those tickets. 

                              What?
