Saw various offical announcements for the game but no ETA on when the tickets start selling.

    i've heard sometime in either june or july, but no specifics.

    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.

        So far I've heard 5/63 + 1/24, 5/71 + 1/17, and now 5/56 + 1/46.

          May the warm winds of heaven blow softly upon your house. May  the Great Spirit bless all who enter there. May your mocassins make happy tracks in many snows. And may the rainbow always touch your shoulder.

            Chief,

            5/63+1/24 = 1:168,692,328 overall 1:22.7
            5/71+1/17 = 1:221,338,453 overall 1:16.5
            5/56+1/46 = 1:175,711,536 overall 1:39.8

            5/56+1/46 sounds more realistic because the overall odds of getting $2 back is more real.  In the first two, the lower prizes would be won too often to have a lot of money left to contribute to the jackpot amount and the idea is to create larger jackpots faster.

              They are estimating July 2005.

                  Yeah hoping they can finally fix it by July. Too bad the game is already set. Was hoping for less Megaballs.

                  Maybe before July 4th.

                    46 Mega Balls are fewer than the current 52.

                        That's still more than Powerball's 42

                        I was just thinking. If they used the 5/71 + 5/17 format, they'd have to buy new drawing machines. The Criterion can only hold 64 balls.

                          Use a keno machine.
