Pick 7 out of 49

Match 5
$50
1 : 2,375

    I don't think people like picking seven numbers (except in keno). Maybe you should be thinking up $2 games instead of 2 plays/$1.

      Jimmy:

       I think you may actually have hit perfection with this one.

      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.

        AFAIC the current gold standard is MA Ca$h WinFall, with its 60% return, and free play for 2/6 (1:6 overall odds).

          For just one line? That's just a little too much unless the game has ginormous lower-tier prizes. I only play Ca$h Winfall on a WinFall alert, as do a lot of others.

            O.K. MA Megabucks Player Hater If you like paying double what others are willing to pay, here's a game for you.

            Pick 5 out of 25

            Cost : $2

            •    
            • Match 5 - $25,000
            •    
            • Match 4 - $50
            •    
            • Match 3 - $5
            •    
            • Match 2 - $2

            Overall odds : 1 in 3.9

            You need to have really low overall odds for a game this expensive.

            As for the original topic, people in Canada have no problem picking 7 numbers in their Lotto Super 7. And Super 7 in PA did pretty well, it only got axed because Keystone Jackpot would provide bigger jackpots with double the odds. This might make a good New Super 7 in either PA or Canada. Or maybe OH could make it their new Super Lotto. Or how about this, a joint OR/WA game?

              $2 for one ticket for low odds is too much JimmySand9. Let's try this plan:

              Pick 5 out of 49 and a Mega Number 1 out of 27. There is also a bonus WB for the remaining 44 numbers.

              Cost: 2 plays for a $1

              Here's the average payout:

              Match All 5 and Mega: Jackpot [minimum: $3 million]

              All 5: $20,000

              4 out of 5 plus bonus and Mega: $5,000

              4 out of 5 and Mega: $1,500

              4 out of 5 plus bonus: $200

              4 out of 5: $100

              3 out of 5 plus bonus and Mega: $100

              3 out of 5 and Mega: $50

              3 out of 5 plus bonus: $20

              3 out of 5: $10

              2 out of 5 plus bonus and Mega: $15

              2 out of 5 and Mega: $10

              2 out of 5 plus bonus: $7

              1 out of 5 plus bonus and Mega: $5

              1 out of 5 and Mega: $3

              0 out of 5 plus bonus and Mega: $2

              0 out of 5 and Mega: $1

              1 out of 5 plus bonus or 0 out of 5 plus bonus: Free $1 ticket [for 2 plays] you must play for next draw

                1 out of 5 plus bonus or 0 out of 5 plus bonus: Free $1 ticket [for 2 plays] you must play for next draw

                That is way too confusing.

                I just made that game to satisfy CO's desire for an expensive game.

                  I agree with this payout, but it seems expensive for a $2 game JimmySand.  Here's my suggestion:

                  Pick 5 out of 25, plus a bonus ball out of remaining 20 to win a jackpot.

                  Cost: 2 plays for a $1

                  Payout [on average] 

                  5+bonus: $200000 [minimum and grows with rollover]

                  5: $2500

                  4+bonus: $300

                  4: $30

                  3+bonus: $20

                  3: $5

                  2+bonus: $3

                  1+bonus: $2

                  bonus only: $1

                    bonus only: $1

                    What is that, like a 2000% payout?

                    Hey, here's what I use to determine my payouts. It calculates both odds and average payouts.

                      O.K. You thought that was nice, how about this.

                      Whenever the jackpot hits $20 million annuity value, and theres no winner, the jackpot winfalls. The jackpot would be divided evenly among the 4 lower prize tiers.


                      Regular Prize
                      Avg. Winfall Prize
                      Match 7
                      Jackpot
                      N/A
                      Match 6
                      $1,500
                      $156,827
                      Match 5
                      $50
                      $2,550
                      Match 4
                      $5
                      $115
                      Match 3
                      $1
                      $11

                      These would'nt come up very often, but to me, it can be just as exciting as a $300M jackpot. I mean, $11 being the lowest prize in a game with 1 in 10 overall odds. Who wouldn't buy tickets?!
