          USA lottery is in the business of making money not giving money to lottery players.

          Well mega millions gave away millions for $2 and powerball gave away millions for $3 . So for $5 monopoly millionaires or monopoly billionaires should be able to give away billions and make billions all at same time.BananaBananaBananaBananaBanana Simple Go Big or Go Home.

              Any word yet as to what's happening with the Vegas tv game show? The Play MMC website has no details; not even any mention of the entire game ending soon.

              Will the show go on?, be abbreviated?, canceled? If canceled, what will the Vegas trip winners get? ... the trip anyways with no show to attend?, cash in lieu of travel?, a guaranteed cash prize?, or get little to nothing? Has MUSL has even figured that out yet...

              Even if the show goes on, the Vegas trip winners never get a reasonable chance of winning a million dollars. There's a real possibility of the game show being adjusted to make winning a million dollars near impossible. This gets back to the lack of transparency issue I've harped on numerous times about the precise details and rules of the show not being publicly mentioned anywhere. I get the sense the "fix" is already in.

                The states always think they know better then us common unwashed masses. If a private business instead of the government was going to develop a new game, they would have had many focus groups and would have a lot of feedback from the people they needed to play. The MSL just figured that the monopoly brand would get people playing regardless, but they thought wrong.

                    YOU cant win in Tennessee on any game and you want people to play a 5 dollars ,per draw....when you dont do people right everything you do will fail.

                    You are exactly right on all points made in your post. I think it is time for Rebcca Hargrove to leave and take her computerized random number generator with her !!!

                          LOTTERY PLAYERS HAVE BEATEN THE LOTTERY BY winning.

                          How do lottery players force the lottery to give them what they want? 

                          Lottery players can beat the lottery at its own games by refusing to play.

                           

                          I feel that the USA lottery has a hidden agenda against bigger lottery jackpots, even though Bigger lottery jackpots=Higher lottery sales.

                           

                          Yes, the lottery is against the idea of having a lottery game with a $1 billion jackpot. They want to cap lottery jackpots across the board.

                           

                          This is not capitalism.

                           

                          Stop with the spread the wealth bull sh$t. We all like to dream big, sometimes I feel that these lottery games are being ran by communists that hate wealthy individuals.

                            Monopoly Millionaires' Club actually WAS developed by a private company (SGI/MDI). In fact, most if not all lottery games on the market today are created by the vendor(s). As I discussed in another post, the vendors practically have a monopoly, and the states are so desperate that they are like sheep and will take whatever looks promising. In this case, the market research and feedback that went into MMC development was HIGHLY suspect. But the lotteries went along with it anyway.

                            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?

                              Private sector want to sell all lottery products over the Internet and retailers, and the government is against it. Private lottery managers are not free to make choices, when they are running these lottery operations, and it is why they are failing to bring the sales that they promised.
