WA's Quinto is now at an at least 2-1/2 year high. But WA Lotto is still growing faster, and therefore getting more sales. Either this a testament to WA Lotto's popularity or a wake up call to the WA Lottery to replace the cards with numbers. Worse odds, and a smaller jackpot, and still more sales than Quinto.

    i think people are playing WA's lotto because they're confused as to how you play quinto.

    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.

      For the longest time, I've been calling for an          all-number pick-5 game to replace Quinto.

        CashOnly, you might want to know that even the annutity jackpot for Lotto is smaller than Quinto's Cashpot right now.

          Well the lotto is worthless since the change from lotto plus. Biggest prize so far has been under 3 million. Oregon's lottery is far better. The current quinto jackpot is a record though. Its never been this big.

          I'm just hoping they can recomend a fix for the crappy Megamillions game and its low jackpots.

              Yeah, then the jackpots would grow, because everyone would stop playing.

                If nobody played, the jackpots would not increase.

                  They need to change the odds. The game as it is now rarely breaks 135 million (it's odds) and has an average pot of ony 47 million - below that of powerball. I think most people would rather see a change in the odds than a change in the price but the current game is broken.

                    I really think the next change to MM (not counting the TX Megaplier) is raising the price.

                      Raising the price wouldn't really help sales that much. Tickets for some canadian lotteries are now $2 and their sales certainly didn't double. I think most players would rather see a change in the game instead of an increase in the price.

                      Sadly though judging from how little the people that run both megamillions and powerball seem to care about sales or the opinion of players i think a price hike is more likely. Sad, since the first game that can change to get larger pots would really have great sales. A price hike would piss off the players that play every week far more than a simple game change.

                        One game that costs $2 (Massachusetts Ca$h WinFall) has a 60% payback, the highest of any US                lotto game.

                          Not quite, OR Megabucks pays out 75% from time to time. But as far as consistency is concerned, yeah.

                            I'd like to see proof that OR Megabucks is so generous.
