Powerball- Why it isn't always good.
Ok. Before I say anything, I know there are probably quite a few people here who will disagree, and about one or two who will agree with me on this. Anyway, here goes.I've noticed in the past few years that there are states that will only carry one or two online games, and some of those states' in-state games are pick 3, or another game that does not offer a rolling jackpot. Now with North Dakota starting a lottery that ONLY offers MUSL games, states are really missing out on the point of starti

I'm thinking of starting a lottery pool
I'm thinking of starting a lottery pool with some friends and family members. MegaMillions will be coming to my state (Connecticut) after the end of January. I'm thinking of getting maybe 5 of us together, each put in $20+ and then buying $5 worth of tickets for each drawing for the next 20+ drawings (advance purchase). Each participent can pick their own 5+1 number and we will split the winnings 5 ways at the end of all the drawings unless we hit a really big win in which case we would split th

Hawaii
tg:I have friends in Oklahoma, and my first eight visits (1986-1996) were like a getaway as far as the lottery was concerned. Now that OK will be starting a lottery this year...

i don't think we need to worry about alabama starting a lottery before FL goes multi-state.

Ohio Lotto 6/49 Starts 01/22/2007
Ohio and Michigan already share the multi-state game MegaMillions for those players who want to play for an extra large jackpot. The Classic Lotto 6/49 game will fit nicely between Rolling Cash5 and MegaMillions. Some people use similar logic when starting a lottery pool but most people still prefer to take their chances alone and keep all their winnings rather than sharing them.

A Tale of Two Lotteries
Powerball and Mega MillionsThe Lottery of the Heartland vs. The Lottery of the MetropolisThis summer we will see the changes to Mega Millions and in autumn we'll watch the new Powerball.For a few years, the two seemed as equals. Both games would climb over the $100 million mark and occasionally $200 million. Then Mega Millions started to gain a slight edge on jackpot rollover amounts. Powerball tried to one-up the cosmopolitan lottery by landing the Florida contract. 'No dice,' said Governor

Playing the Extra Dollar on the Jackpot Games
Thanks for the replies ... as for my lottery budget ... I decided just before 2011 started to up my lottery budget to $100 (was spending $70) ... I actually need around $114 a month ... but I'm figuring (hoping!) that I can at least win $14 from all the lottery play. That would allow me to play the extra dollar on PB and MM and the other big PA jackpot games. I had it set to do this for three months starting Jan 1st and see how I did in monetary return ... I had a decent Jan return but a bad Feb

Potential problem with PA Mix & Match
I also stated before that I would never play a game starting at only $50,000, so there would be a lot of waiting on rolls. I will be spending even less than I did on LFL. But I would taker a LFL win any day over any cash jackpot under $750,000. The lottery is a self-imposed tax that steals from you many ways, more so psychologically. Even so with the very little return it seems like blatant stealing, especially to those who actually depend on the lottery for a win.

More Powerball States.
dventually every state will realize that the only way to make extra money is by starting up a lottery. remember that if a state tries to turn down a lottery due to religious reasons, it's a violation of the 1st amendment.

Lotto America
I don't quite understand what is happening with this game with the various add and subtract increases of late either. The amount of tickets being sold still seems to be around 600,000 - 650,000. This continues to make the odds of any ticket winning about 1 in 40 or so. Saturday's draw had 9 winners of the 4 + 1 prize between regular tickets and the Star bonus tickets. There are only 5 different possible combos of the 5 winning numbers that can be made, so some of these 9 winners had the same num
