How's about this idea for a Powerball Add-On Game? I got the idea from the provincial 6/49s in Canada, and how they market it as a add-on to the national 6/49. But unlike other add-ons, this can be played alone. This format is based on the future 55+42, and is estimated to pay about 50%. It's made to provide bigger smaller prizes.

Price : 20¢ per play or a full 5-play card for $1.

Prizes And Odds per $1 :

      I would suggest having 5 numbers and a PB to win the jackpot. I would consider having a 6th WB as a bonus ball not related to win a jackpot. Here's my formula.

      5/5+PB: Jackpot

      5/5: 2nd tier prize

      4/5+Bonus+PB: 3rd tier prize

      4/5+PB: 4th tier prize

      4/5: 5th tier prize

      3/5+Bonus+PB: 6th tier prize

      3/5+PB: 7th tier prize

      3/5: $15

      2/5+PB: $15

      2/5+Bonus+PB: $20

      2/5+Bonus: $10

      1/5+PB: $8

      0/5+PB: $5

        I didn't want to make a different game. I wanted to make a lower priced version of Powerball, with more going to lower tier prizes.
