    If CT drops PB, look for CT to join MM and Classic Lotto 47 with Michigan.

        Why did MI get rid of the Windfall game?

          It wasn't making enough money for them.  People were buying tickets but it was taking forever to reach the $5 million mark.  I mean when it was up to the $5 million jackpot they were selling tickets like hot cakes.  But this Classic Lotto 47 isn't any better.  It seems like people won't buy a lot of tickets at all now without there being a rolldown.

            I think this classic lotto game won't get any bigger because many people win these small jackpots.

              I would have liked to see the MI-OH game get off the ground; single-state "classic lotto" games are a slowly dying breed.

                I think OH should join MI in the classic lotto games. If one state is by themselves, sales will be decling.

                  MI and OH should offer the proposed 6/55 game, including the 2/6 prize, but make each ticket $1.

                    So Ohio is going ahead with its bingo-style proposal. If it and the new Michigan Classic Lotto 47 don't take off, I would like to see a MI-OH jackpot game.

                      i think there's a good chance that OH will use an RNG to draw the numbers.

                      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.

                        If OH flops the bingo game in 6 to 12 months, I hope that they join with MI in the MI-OH lotto game. I would predict 6/54 if MI and OH both play classic lotto. MI will have company for Wednesday and Saturday.

                          I think if the Ohio bingo game flops, the new and improved SuperLottoPlus will be brought back.  It will start out with a jackpot of $1M instead of $4M as it does now.  Selling that as new and improved now would be a hard sell, but after a year of the $2 bingo ticket that only allows you to pick one of 12 possible combinations, it will sound new and improved.
