With the gradual introduction of $2-per-play online games, soon there may be current games that double in price. MUSL may want to test a new version of Hot Lotto (my speculation, not a rumor) to gauge when it would make sense to change Powerball to $2 per ticket (WITHOUT PowerPlay.)

I suggest the following for a $2 Hot Lotto game:

New matrixes: 5/39 + 1/15; lengthen the annuity to 30 payments; increase the rollovers by a minimum of $100,000; new prize structure: 5 numbers $15,000; 4+HB $500; 4 numbers $75;    3+HB $50;                      3 numbers $7; 2+HB $5; 1+HB $4; HB only $3.

    i would just double all of the prizes if the price were doubled.

    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.

      A $2 Hot Lotto would need to create bigger jackpots to entice more states to join.
