Mass. Lottery to host 'retirement party' for Mass Millions game

Massachusetts LotteryMassachusetts Lottery: Mass. Lottery to host 'retirement party' for Mass Millions game

Treasurer Tim Cahill and Massachusetts State Lottery Director Joe Sullivan will mark the last drawing of the Lottery's Mass Millions game by throwing a "retirement party" for the game and by unveiling the Lottery's new numbers game.

After 17 years, and over 1,000 drawings, Mass Millions is being retired.  The game has paid out $898 million in jackpots, and has provided millions of dollars to the Commonwealth during its run.

Unfortunately for the public, the Massacusetts Lottery invited only the news media to the party, during which cake and soft drinks will be served.

The party will take place tomorrow at 1:00 PM local time at the State House in Boston.

      yeah, especially the guy who won $50 some million.

      I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

        Everyone who hit Mass Millions is still receiving annuity payments.

          Oh, this is "cute"....



          If nobody hits the last MM drawing tomorrow (9/9), the money will not be added to the opening "Cash WinFall" drawing, but instead will be distrbuted to holders of 4/6, 5/6 and 5/6+bonus ball tickets.



          The "cute" part? Those who get 3/6 (a 57/1 shot) will not share in the "roll down", but instead will still receive only 1 free ticket (for one of the other $1 lotto games, not for the $2 CW).

            That miserable "free ticket" prize is one more reason I am glad to see Mass Millions bite the dust.  It is so hard to get even 3/6 and your prize is...another losing ticket soon to be worth nothing, essentially the lottery keeping your dollar.  And then, at the bitter end, they can't even toss a little bone to players who have been shafted by the lousy free ticket prize for years.

              at least cash winfall has a free bet for 2/6 instead of 3/6.  i think more lotto games should do that.

                  I bought 5 tickets hoping to get one of those 4 & 5 of 6 prizes and it turns out all I won was...another lousy free ticket.  Even if they gave $50 for 3/6 it would have still left the other prizes substantially higher. I used it to get a mega millions ticket. I think I deserve to win something of substance after getting the shaft yet again, so this should be my night.
