You've got to put it all in perspective. I think the 6/59 will stay around for a while, at least 2008...that's only three years. I like to consider the 6/59 a challenge, not an impossible obstacle.
Right now it's a much better jackpot deal than Mega Millions. I play for the jackpot, not the smaller prizes, so I couldn't care less the payout percentages on match 3/4/5. On NY Lotto tonight, for $1 I've got a 1 in 22 million chance of hitting $28 million. On Mega Millions Tuesday night, for that same dollar I would have a 1 in 135 million chance of hitting $10 million!
NY Lotto: Three times the payout with only 1/6th as many combinations in play as MM. I know what game my money is on.
