O.K. Numbers, Win4, and Quick Draw will remain unchanged. And the only changes I have for Pick 10 are televising the drawings, and a rolling jackpot beginning at $500,000 and grows by at least $50,000 each draw.



Take Five:



The most prominent features will remain unchanged. Still pick 5 of 39, still $1, and still daily. But the prize structure is the big change.



  • Match 5-40% of Prize Pool
  • Match 4-30% of Prize Pool
  • Match 3-30% of Prize Pool
  • Match 2-Still a free ticket.




In addition, in the rare dvent (it's rare for Take Five) that there is no winner, the jackpot will not roll down, but roll over, until it reaches $500,000. Only then will it roll down (a la WinFall). Here's the structure for that situation.



  • Match 5-Rolled Down
  • Match 4-35% of Prize Pool
  • Match 3-35% of Prize Pool
  • Match 2-30% of prize pool.
  • Keep in mind the prize pool includes the Match 5 jackpot of at least $500,000




Lotto:



Ah yes, the cheapo game as CASHOnly would call it. Mega Millions is now the big time jackpot game in NY, and with that in mind, it's time for New York Lotto to carve a niche instead of competing toe-to-toe with MM. Here are the gameplay changes.



  • Going back to the classic 6/54 game.
  • 2 plays for 1 dollar, as always.
  • No more bonus ball, just six lucky numbers.
  • Cash or Annuity? Take your pick.




But the biggest change is Lotto is going from New York's cheapo game, to New York's generous game. The payout will increase to 55%. And the prize structure follows:



  • Match 6-50% of prize pool
  • Match 5-25% of prize pool
  • Match 4-25% of prize pool
  • Match 3-$3 Fixed, which will be deducted from the prize pool first before the rest is divided.

    Yeah good luck with that. Those greedy morons dont understand that people like myself will never play a lotto with such a horrible payback percentage.  And the pick ten game is the biggest joke around, its a money mint for them. No one ever wins.

      would the second prize also roll over if there is no winner?

      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.

        also remember that it's more likely that the lower prizes will be won by more players, so you may want to allocate a higher pecentage of the prize pool to the lower prizes.

          Note that there is no more bonus ball. And if no one matches 5 out of 6? Yeah like that's going to happen.

            in theory it's possible.
