    It would be ironic if it had a bigger jackpot than Powerball.

        Yes. It's played differently from Powerball, you just pick 6 numbers. My proposal would probably get more states joining.

          Some of your odds are incorrect (1+HB; 0+HB, overall odds).

                How are they incorrect?

                  Chance of 0+HB alone in a 6/51 game is 6/45, or 1: 7.5.

                    Well when you calculate odds, you also have to factor in the chance that you'll win in another category. Look at Powerball, you would think the odds of matching just the Powerball is 1 in 42. But it's higher than that because you also have the chance of matching more.

                            Keep rolling, keep rolling. I'm going to DC in April, and I'll be playing that and Quick Ca$h. And I want my first and only experience with HL to be a good one.

                              You'll end up wishing PA had Hot Lotto instead of Unlucky for Life.

                              Maybe you'll be able to see a baseball game at RFK.
