    no lottery would go for a 4 plays for $1 idea. ct it down to 2 for $1, and then they'd go for it.

    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.

      You must have been thinking of MUSL's long-retired Daily Millions.

        Game as suggested with a $1Mil fixed jackpot has a payout percentage of 35.49%, even with four plays per $. Most jurisdictions are set at 50% or slightly more.

          How did you come up with that? I went to the Barnager odds calculator to determine all the odds and amounts. It may not be accurate in case, but it's free so I can't complain. I did put in 50% for the overall prize pool, maybe you're thinking of the top prize being 35.5%.

            Not really, Daily Millions was a 2/21+2/21+2/21 game. This is just a straight 6/54.
