Don't look now, but this jackpot is also growing slower than in the past.   We won't be over a billion at 20 draws; not even close.

My suspicion is that people are getting bored by the jackpots and are recognizing the extremely long odds.

The lottery's strategy to address declining sales, I'm guessing, will be the following:   Raise the ticket price to $5; make the odds 1 to the distance to Pluto in kilometers.

I think the lottery officials have been killing the goose that laid the golden egg, and dismembering it piece by piece.

My suspicion is that your suspicion is correct.

I quit PB after the last matrix change, except to play when it went over 1B.

Then a strange thing happened...I no longer felt compelled to play MM every draw,

had been playing since the beginning when it was called the Big Game.

 

So the folks @ MUSL may be killing geese !

 

Now my main game is CFL

    MUSL runs the show for both lotteries, right??

     

    Funny I was almost thinking of driving to Cambridge City, IN yesterday. 

     

    Indiana had another million dollar winner last night, WTG!  Will be checking their lottery site later on to see where the ticket was sold.

     

    Good luck Kingofearth.

    Yes but i read that the two games operate pretty independently of each other. 

     

    Thanks.

        Thank you Bleudog, Golfer, Rcbbuckeye and Artist!! We are feeling very blessed for the opportunity to grow our family.

        My little man is four and anxious to have a baby brother (not interested in girls yet).

          Congratulations!  I'm sure you won't offend anyone who isn't easily offended to begin with.  Personally, I'd rather see a pregnant woman in a bikini than a fat old man in a Speedo. (or ANY man for that matter)

          I don't own a Speedo, but the last time I went to the beach, I came home with a severe sunburn and three harpoon wounds.
