The game would be better with more chances to actually win a $1 million. With only one drawing out of 8 where players won $1 million and the states still lost money, makes one wonder what if there were more more winners.

The lottery can't offer more chances to win with a 50% payback in prizes to lottery players. Lottery has to pay back at least 80% in prizes and charge more money. It would allow the lottery to create great games to play.

    That's why I never played, $5 for a ticket is too much in my opinion.

    USA lottery is no longer interested in draw games, they are making so much money with $5, $10, $20, $30 and $50 Instant Scratch Off Games, that you barely see any draw games winners on the lottery websites. I do not play scratch off games regardless.

      Other lotteries have successfully motivated players to play consistently even when jackpots are low by including the raffle feature that MMC has. The MMC raffle is complicated somewhat. If MMC guaranteed one ticket will win $1M every drawing regardless of whether there is a top prize winner or not, then maybe they stand a chance to save this doomed game.

      UK has the raffle feature in its Euro Millions and in every drawing, someone wins £1M. That would be enough motivation for me to play consistently if I lived over there. Neither MM nor PB guarantees there will be $1M in every draw. I've seen MM go for 4 draws in a raw without a $1M winner

       

      Europeans play the Euromillions out of convenience, but it is not a great game to play relative to the playing population. Selling lottery tickets over the Internet has allowed players to take a chance without risking their lives on the way to play the lottery at the retailers.

        OK  HERE   IS  MY  SOLUTION  FOR  THE  MONOPOLY  MILLIONAIRE  CLUB                                 

                                          The biggest problem with the monopoly millionaires club is the name . The name has to be changed from the monopoly millionaires club to the   "new monopoly Billionaires club"  . So why does this matter well no big lottery game survives without a big jackpot like my name joeBiglotto so this game is good at $5 per ticket but the jackpot is not good for a lottery buying frenzy. So the maximum jackpot of this game has to be changed from the current cap of $25,000,000 to a new cap of $1,000,000,000 yes you heard me right a new cap of one billion dollars to be called the new "billionaires club " . With this new upgrade players do not have to wait for a jackpot winner to get paid one million dollars. twenty percent of any available jackpot automatically gets paid out to the one million dollar winners. So if the jackpot is $100,000,000

        then 20 millionaires will be created  if jackpot is one billion then 200 millionaires will be created all based on jackpot availability so no money no pay big money big pay. To help this game achieve one billion dollar jackpot the odds of winning the jackpot will be higher than powerball and megamillions combined so you are looking at one in 400,000.   In three months with no jackpot winner you may have your first one billion dollar jackpot and a new lottery buying frenzy and everybody happy. with no jackpot winner at least five to ten millionaires selected and with a  billion dollar jackpot winner 200 millionaires selected. this will make everybody happy more millionaires in the largest scale possible and one billionaire every two or three months. So i hope the executives at the monopoly millionaire club decision making department are reading my Review of their failing game and seriously consider my fix option because am JoeBiglotto go Big or go home.BananaBananaBananaBananaBanana

            This game was terrible in numerous ways from the start.  It took years to develop and this was the best they could do?  All these states are making a smart decision.  This game in it's current format will be quickly forgotten.

            The concept of creating several millionaires is a good idea if implemented right.  Maybe a format similar to the Lucky For Life game and the Cash 4 Life game would work better, particularly the Cash 4 Life game offered in New York and New Jersey.  Perhaps they can base a new format on the board game Life instead of Monopoly?

            Hit With StickI  disagree  the  game  was  great  but  complicated  and  it  cost  $5.00  ...that  stopped  me   from  playing  at  all :

            the  chances  to  win  a  million  were  better ;  the   other  multi-state lottery  tickets  are  even  more  harder  to  win ;

                  Here's a simple idea. How about take the same States that were in on this game and make a game that pays out a million dollars a year for life annuity. One draw every Friday night. Make it a $2 game. There it is. I'd bet the house that a game like this would sell...The creators of this Monopoly game should not only lose their jobs, but go straight to jail and not collect $200...
