Maybe not, but it's pretty darn close.

    prizes are and roll overs are terrible but once the jackpot is high you cant beat 2 games for a dollar ,so its just a waiting game till i see the jackpot i like  before i start wasting my $$ on it Skeptical but it just takes forever to build up a pot

      I don't know why you complain about it. Try the new WA lotto. The prize never breaks 5 million (as an annuity) and it's computer drawn. Pretty crappy for a 1:7 million game. Even Oregon has a better state lottery game.

        I can think of so many games worse than New York Lotto. A low payout is not enough to keep me from playing. Hey, Arizona Fantasy 5 only pays 45%, and that doesn't even have 2 plays for a buck. Why don't you complain about that. It's a bigot lottery anyway.

          I think N.Y. lotto is the best game on the east coast.
          It even has annuity payments. LOL

            The prize pool for NY Lotto is ONLY 38%-40% of sales.

            Todd, how can NY Lotto be better than MA Ca$h WinFall when the latter has a 60% payback?

              you live in n.y.  instead of complaining here over and over and over - keep emailing n.y. lottery about it.

                  Euro Millions has a great lump-sum payout, eh?

                          AZ Fantasy 5 isn't that great either. It only pays 45%. Why don't you complain about that?

                            Way cool. I gotta get to Port Jervis and buy tickets. They ought to make that permanent. That essentially lowers the overall odds to 1 in 27!

                              The NY Lotto bonus prizes are temporary. I doubt the return is 50%.

                              NY Lotto makes AZ Fantasy Five look like a great game.
