Apparently there's no "Play for a Billion" this summer. Anybody know why?

    I don't know why but I really liked it last summer.  I wish they would bring it back.

    How are you going to win if you don't play?

      I would think the potential liability for paying the $250,000,000 cash had something to do with it.

          Hi, I think if no one win, the  jakpot can roll to 1 billion!!and if you like cash, you can receive about one third of the advertised amount ...1 billion divided by three, you get about $350,000,000 fresh cash !?Guitar

          Later, you have to deal with being disturbed,  heee...heee...Crazy

          But finally, money's still  the best ....huh ??Drum

            The whole pepsi billions thing was a scam. You had to have a winning cap that was accepted by the website probably in a non-random way so the people would look good for the TV show where you might have a chance at winning the billion. Pepsi just took an insurance policy against someone winning the TV show. It's better to look at real lotteries instead of that nonscence.

              I agree with this. I don't believe winning this promotion is possible. I rather stick to lottery games.

                Pepsi would not have been responsible for the $1,000,000,000 prize.  There are not that dumb.  What companies do is purchase insurance from a company.  They purchase a policy for x amount of dollars and in case of the event that there was a winner the insurance company would have to cover it.
