Good luck to the players who're playing this game! I wonder why they have to run five white balls of 52 and 10 Lotto America Star Balls in the second machine?

I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the PB to win the largest PB jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!

    True, most players have no idea of game features, odds, payback, etc. Ultimately, it comes down to luck, so if Lotto America was offered in PA, I'd likely play it occasionally. Lotto America is trading on an old name that doesn't seem relevant. Lack of creativity, but maybe the experts know what they're doing... We'll see.

    You're spot on about NY Lotto. Insane odds and payback of only 40%. 1 in 46 of winning anything; most likely $1 or $20-$30. That makes Lotto America look great in comparison.

    Lotto America may last awhile, since it's near certain to be highly profitable with virtually no risk to participating lotteries. However, seems redundant to Mega Millions and Powerball. Moreover, many lotteries already offer regional games, such as Cash4Life, with similar odds and multimillion dollar top prizes. Draw schedules are getting crowded in many states; cannibalizing sales of already existing games.

        Bought a ticket today ... 1 line for 10 draws.  Since its starting with the larger jackpot I figured I'd give it a try.   Hopefully I'll do well :] and good luck to everyone else playing =>

          That makes a ton of sense.  After the initial jackpot is won, who knows how long it will be before it gets this high again.  I would play myself if I lived in a Lotto America state.

            I agree with Todd, Id play if it was available here in Kentucky. I quit on Powerball when they changed then ive quit on Megamillions since they changed. Been playing more on Kentuckys cashball. If and when i travel to West virginia or Tenneessee ill play Lotto America. The only time i would play the other two would be in a pool where you could play on a couple dollars.

                    Thanks for the laugh.  We both know UT & NV have about as much chance of a lottery as a snowball in h--l of even getting on the table.

                      US FlagSo, here we go again! They already are showing how dishonest the game is by "NOT" putting the drawing on T.V.!!! I will only buy one ticket but until I can see the drawings!!!...........

                      It's not going to be on TV, but from what I've read you will be able to watch the draws as they are going to stream them live on the internetSmile

                            Glad that I read this article as I was thinking the starting JP would be $2 million, not the actual $15 million from the Hot Lotto rollover. Glad that MUSL did the right thing and push the jackpot from the old game into Lotto America, except it won't be all cash and "taxes paid" like Hot Lotto was. I also like that this game won't be an RNG game!

                            Dissapointed that New Hampshire has decided to wait until January to participate in this game. Fortunately I live near the Maine/NH state line and only had to drive 2 miles to the nearest Maine lottery retailer to pick up my 10 lines for tonight's drawing. Good luck to all those who are playing.

                              "The odds of winning the jackpot in Lotto America will be around 1 in 26 million"

                              Yet jackpots will start at only $2 million.

                              -------

                              In addition to the jackpot there are eight other lower-tier prizes ranging from $2 up to $20,000.

                              Yet there are 2,598,960 or maybe so possible combinations for the 5/52 main balls, those numbers might be wrong, but still more than 2 million combinations for the 5 main balls, when they only pay $20,000.

                              That is less than 1/100 of the total possible combinations.

                              -----------

                              Like with all lottery games, payouts are not in proportion to the odds of the game.

                              -------

                              Same as always, the house always wins and wins huge.

                              ------

                              Players never have a chance!

                              Games are of course made so the house always wins very big and people can only win by chance and win little.

                              But of course, you are not forced to play, people play by either entertainment and or greed.

                              Needy people should get a job instead of playing, unless of course you are playing with money that others give to you and you don't really need that money, such as homeless people do.

                              Many homeless people buy lottery tickets, not to mention tobacco and beer, after all, they are buying such with money given to them.

                              Here on Texas we have some lottery games that you would need to be a baboon to buy, but I should not say that, I don't want to offend baboons, after all they are people and they are intelligent in their own way.

                              And they are cute!

                              Be kind to "animals", they are also people.

                              Well, I was right:

                              https://www.<snip>.com/lottery-odds-calculator.php

                              Match how many:Odds:
                              51 in 2598960
                              41 in 11059
                              31 in 240
                              21 in 16
                              11 in 3
                              01 in 2

                              Lotto America Odds

                              Lotto America odds are calculated in exactly the same way as Powerball odds with formulas changed to account for the different number of balls?52 possibilities (rather than Powerball’s 69) for the white balls and 10 possibilities for the Star Ball instead of Powerball’s 26. The probability of matching the Star Ball is 1 in 10. Matching all five of the white balls would be calculated as (5/52) x (4/51) x (3/50) x (2/49) x (1/48), or 0.000000385, which translates into odds of 1 in 2,598,960. The probability of winning the jackpot, therefore, is (1/2,598,960) x (1/10), or 0.0000000385, or 1 in 25,989,600.
