Michigan WinFall will be replaced next month with Classic Lotto 47.

    i think the idea will be shelved.

    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.

      Do you mean the bi-state game?

        I suppose everyone is assuming Michigan CL 47 will be $1 per play.

          Well lets hope Ohio gets rid of the super lotto plus game with odds of 1 to 451 just for a free play.  I would like to see a bi-state game but not one at $2 per play.  I guess time will tell.

            I'd like to see the 6/55 MI-OH version happen, be it $1 or $2 per play.

              Maybe the idea will be revived since MUSL may come out with a "super Powerball".

                Actually the free play is a "promotional" prize with odds of 1 in 57 (match 3 of 6, no bonus). The 1 in 451 odds represent the odds of winning a money prize. I will be glad if it's replaced with an improved $1 game. If it's $2, it's not much of a gain, it might even be a loss if the game isn't special enough (I expect a lot if I have to pay $2 for 1 measly line).

                  Michigan is getting rid of WinFall and starting to use a computer RNG for some of its games, Ohio has enough bad ideas of its own without adapting some from Michigan.

                    Maybe the joint game should have come out instead of MI Classic Lotto 47.

                        How about a joint Connecticut-Michigan-Ohio game? (if CT dumps Powerball)

                              Ohio and Michigan already share the MegaMillions game.  If Ohio was interested in attracting more lottery players, it would do a better job of advertising to none players especially when the MM jackpot is $100M+.  People like myself that follow the games already play as much as their budget will allow, if Ohio wants to make more lottery money it needs to attract new players.  Locally, a lot of people were surprised when they heard a group from Painesville,Ohio won the $170M MM jackpot because they didn't know the jackpot was that big.
