Affecting change at the state level is daunting - just ask Jim695 and LosingJeff.  It requires persistance (which you have) and lots of contact with state representatives.  Also, the mainstream media needs to be involved.  Only then can you get the kind of public outcry that will get people in Albany moving.

      I am certainly listening to you! And I agree with you about the lousy percentage that NY allocates to its prize pool.

      Most of the time, getting these huge lottery organizations to do anything positive for the players is a monumental challenge, mainly because it requires that legislation be passed. In the case of the NY prize pool, I believe that percentage was allocated through legislation, and not just a number that the lottery came up with.

      Right. The NY Lottery maybe a public business, but it's still a business. And the name of the game is making money. And while we may not like the prize structure, from the lottery's standpoint it's pure genius. To offer big jackpots, and still keep 60% of sales, whoever came up with that got a lofty, but undeserved, promotion.

        We need to keep spreading the word about NY Lotto's terrible prizes.

          NY Lotto won't change. Simply because whatever NY Lotto lacks, Mega Millions, Take Five, and Pick 10 makes up for. That is the message reply I got from them (not in those exact words). It's plain market strategy.

            Take Five replaced Cash 40, which was true to its name (40% payback).

                        I predict that in 2006, New Jersey Lottery tickets will have the name "Corzine" on the back.

                          two things.

                          What was Cash 40? Was it similar to Take 5?



                          2. NY Lottery puts too much money into production values for their draw shows (wich do look good though), as well as paying the incredibly annoying Yolanda Vega out the you-know-where.

                          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.

                            1) Cash 40 was a 6/40 game with small jackpots and decent lower-tier prizes, considering the                      40% payback.

                            2) Now we know where the 10%-12% of NY Lotto sales are going (instead of to winners).

                              New Jersey really doesn't need to make any changes to Pick 6 Lotto just yet. If I were the director of the NJ Lottery, I'd put my focus on developing a new online game to replace Lotzee, perhaps a Pick 10 clone. I like NY's Pick 10.
