Cometition is a good thing and keeps all games trying to meet player demands. 

Keep them separate...  not one big monopoly and we'll all be better off.

Good luck to everyone!

    The odds would be ridiculous as if 170 million to 1 isn't bad enough. If they're going to create a new mega lottery, i think the authorities would be well advised to counter program against the current format of one winner take all. Maybe they could run a monthly lottery where the sales for that month determine the number of million-dollar winners. As the sales of lottery tickets accumulate during the month, each day the lottery could announce the number of million dollar tickets that would be drawn at the end of the month. If a lottery could guarantee 100 to 300 one-million dollar winners in each month-end drawing, I think the visual of seeing all these new millionaires on the stage together would be a huge marketing bonanza....

      Why stop here, let's make it even more difficult to win. Have a global lottery where the odds would probably be 1 in 3,000,000,000.

        the odds do not mean much to those who win the jackpot
