I don't care about sales here. Getting $10,000 for matching 5 numbers out of 39 is a rip-off when in some in-state games you can get way more than that off of a smaller matrix.

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.

    Well moving the game to Mondays & Thursdays (Tue. & Fri. would conflict would some in-state games), and a change to a straight pick-6, would the best catalyst for better sales and a better game.

      for a game with a starting jackpot of $1 million, a move to mon. and thurs. would be a good idea. going to a straight pick 6 game would be a good idea, or they can change it to a pick 4 + pick 1.

        Since it's suppose to be a middle lottery game like a large state I think a pick 6 format would work nicely.

          Wow, I was also going to suggest 4+1, but I erased it from my message. Weird.

            How's this:



            Pick 6 from 48

            • Match 6 - Jackpot (Min. $ 1 Million)
            • Match 5 - $2000
            • Match 4 - $100
            • Match 3 - $5

                I was thinking a 6/49 game myself. 6/49 works in quite a few states. You could also have a 6/50-52 game but players get 2 sets of numbers for a buck.

                If you think 10 grand for 5/39 is a rip don't move to washington. 5 out of a 6/49 game here pays only 1000 bucks.

                  Well keep in mind it's 2 for a dollar for WA Lotto. But then again Maryland pays $500 more for the same matrix and price. Back when Florida had a once-weekly 6/49, it paid around $5,000 for 5 of 6. Matching 5 of 6 will still net you a similar amount, but it's now a 6/53. And if you buy tickets in Florida, keep it away from heat sources. The tickets are made of thermal paper and will be ruined if you have it around a heat source.

                    first, 5/6 on a 6/49 game is easier to get than 5/39. second, a 6/52 game for 9 states could work. it would kind of be link lotto south.

                      No game pays back as terrible as NY Lotto 6/59.

                        Hot Lotto should make the jackpot harder to win rather than to just increase the prizes.

                          Look for Hot Lotto to be gone by next year.
