Wondering if you think Texas will withdraw its Megaplier rather than it expanging to the other                      Mega Millions states.

    sales are incredible. why wouldn't they offer 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.

      Isn't that something Mega Millions does?  Does the state have the authority to stop offering megaplier?

          Texas is making money off the darned thing.  Maybe Cash Only is just jealous and wants it stopped since he can't play . . .

            I simply believe the Megaplier should be game-wide.

              I personally think the Megaplier should be Texas Only.  Texas thought of it, Texas should be the only one to have it.  Just to let you know, I do not even play the Megaplier portion of it anyways.  But my feelings about it, stand.  :)

                Dave:

                Then do you think the PowerPlay should be limited to one MUSL member?

                  I don't know.  Did Powerball have the Powerplay ever since the very start of that game?  Who started it?  One State or did they just add it to the "whole" game?  Texas started the Megaplier, therefore I think Texas should be the only State to have it.  If the Mega Millions people that run this Lotto choose to do the Megaplier instead of Texas alone, then all the States should have it I think.  But the Megaplier was Texas's add-on not Mega Millions add-on.  Other States "can" come up with better prizes than the Megaplier offers and that would be great.

                  It really doesn't matter to me as I do not play the Megaplier and won't play it.  I have played the Megaplier twice since Texas got added.  Didn't win either time and the most I have won is $3 playing Mega Millions.  Whoo Hoo!  But if other States want something like the Megaplier then think up something of their own to do.  Now if the people that run Mega Millions thought of it (which they didn't) then all States that have Mega Millions played in it should have the Megaplier.  But that is not the case.  Let the "other" States think of there own stuff to do like the Megaplier.  Just my opinion on this! 

                  The odds of winning any prize is so great anyways.

                    i think it should be left up to each individual state on whether or not to offer it. perhaps the states should consult the players about 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.

                        TX looked at Powerball as well as Mega Millions. It liked PowerPlay but thought Mega Millions would be a better game for its players.

                          Looks like the Megaplier petition has gone nowhere after nearly a year.

                            I signed it, and got my now-trustee to sign it also.
