$5 for a chance to win a jackpot that amounts to chump change?

No thanks.

PLAYING THE LOTTERY LESS OFTEN IS THE BEST STRATEGY TO WIN A LOTTERY JACKPOT SOMEDAY.

Your chances of developing a gambling addiction are greater by spending $1 on the lottery versus $5 or $10.

You will be playing the lottery more often, because it will be easier to spend $1 versus $5 or $10 on the lottery.

I do not mind spending $5 for a lottery game that allows me to win the smaller prizes more often.

Winning the smaller prizes more often allows you to play for free.

Powerball and Mega Millions smaller prizes are so hard to win that playing those games more often is insane.

LOTTERY PLAYERS ARE FORGETTING THAT MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES' CLUB OFFERS 9 OTHER WAYS OF WINNING PRIZES. I LOVE THE IDEA OF MATCHING 2 NUMBERS AND GETTING MY $5 BACK.

    What a joke this game is. Based on a $1 play the odds of winning top prize is 1 in 363,854,400. They are guaranteeing more millionaires. "The number of randomly chosen $1 million winners will also depend on the size of the jackpot. If the jackpot is $15 million — 10 will be selected; at $18 million, 12 are chosen; at $21 million, 14 people will win $1 million".  "If someone hits the maximum $25 million jackpot, 16 additional $1 million payouts will be awarded, lottery officials said".So for the first draw on Friday 10 new millionaires will be created. How are they confident that over 2 million tickets will be sold from now till Friday. It was around this time of last year when the Multi State Lottery announced the Multi-State Raffle. That only lasted one draw. I believe this game will default based on promises of millionaires per draw. It wont be able to fund itself and I think players will eventually lose total interest on it.

      Nice they made the ticket convenient to purchase 4 draws at an easy $20. Roll Eyes I don't like the quick pick portion or

      the prize structure. I'll play a few times at the start and a few times when the jp is high. As far as being a game

      I'll look forward to each week..I'll stick with Cash 5 here in PA or Treasure Hunt. I do like Match 6 too, 3 lines for

      $2 and multi ways to win.

      Gl all in whatever you choose.

      I Agree! $20.00 -$25.00 a week won't break the bank

            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.

            You are a smart lottery player. Spending $5 to win $1 million makes economic sense. You might hit the jackpot while trying to win the smallers prizes. I will be happy winning a $15 Million or $25 million jackpot.

              Great concept for smaller jackpots but won't be spending $5.00 to buy one ticket. No Pity!

              You will save $5 by not playing. I am donating $5 to this game to help schools.LOL

                This lottery is a bit of a step in the right direction with the payback percentage increasing to 60%. It plays more like a scratch off. Remember though that on a per dollar basis this jackpot is HARDER to hit vs mega or powerball as the odds are over 70 million to one. Which makes per dollar odds of 350+ million to one. The proper way to play this game is to quite frankly save your bullets for when it hits 25 million as you want to maximize your chance of coming home with a million. Instead of playing ten per week or hundred per week save it for 40 at end of month or 400 at end of month.  Sadly Illinois will not be offering this but once it gets to 25 million it will be worth a drive to Indiana to put 100 on it.

                I have seen lottery players spending $5, $10, $20, $30 and $50 everyday on Instant Scratch Off Games.

                Monopoly Millionaires' Club $5 ticket will not scare lottery games big spenders.

                  don't think people on here are all that excited about winning only a million dollars maximum for playing a 5.00 ticket. they will accept winning 1 million as the 2nd tier prize in the other big games but this one will struggle after the novelty wears off as 5.00 a line is just too much. also not a lot of interest in flying to vegas to sit in a studio audience for a remote chance to win more. people just don't want to do that. have you tried to fly lately. surly, untrained security forcing you to undress, taking your temperature for ebola, and if someone throws up on a plane you are forced to deal with it until inexperienced glams in haz-mat suits board the plane to clean it up. so that part of the prize isn't that appealing. also that lucky for life game (2.00) isn't selling all that well either. so don't wish for that one to be available in your state as players are too old to reap a lot of cash from that one. they've ruined PB and MEGA by increasing the amount of numbers in the matrix deeming it nearly impossible to hit. i've noticed the bloom is off the rose for excitement regarding the growing jackpots for those once extremely popular games. still probably your best bargain to at least get a 2nd tier million prize. they are over-saturating the market for these lottery games (ridiculous amount of scratch off tickets available everywhere, including a kings ransom 30.00 ticket in this state) now, they want to drain all your cash from your pocket and want to force you to buy overpriced health insurance. how much money do they think less affluent people have?

                  "Don't worry about market saturation. Like Atlantic City as Americans savings and earnings dwindle the rake becomes less and less until finally the gamblers have no money left and the casinos close down. The same will happen with lotteries as more and more Americans go broke less and less money will be spent on lotteries and they will gradually fade away. This is why they keep creating new lotteries the politicians haven't scraped all America's savings into their hands, but that day is coming close. You'll know it is at hand when government agencies do like big business and start eliminating full time jobs and start hiring part timers who don't get health or retirement benefits." Unkwon Author.

                    referring to your last sentence....I would, to me thats better odds than the other big pots.  I think what the problem is with all the negative response to this game is you got a bunch of losers that have no positive attitude.  what else can i say.

                    I read all these post and all were not negative but the negative ones gave their certain reasons why they not playing which is fine, everyone is entitled to their opinon.  But I am starting to suspect a lot cant afford to spend  5 bucks and blame it on the odds....the odds are betting than PB or MM

                    Lottery players can afford to spend $5 everyday on the lottery $1,825 yearly.

                    Lottery lottery players do not mind spending money on Instant Scratch Games that cost $5, $10, $20, $30 and $50.

                    Lottery players will be spending $5, $10, $15, $20 and more on Monopoly Millionaires' Club.
