I was thinking up a better version of Lot O' Play. I kind of had Texas in mind for this for some reason, so I call it Texas Square Dance. See if you like it.

6 numbers are drawn out of 60 balls, numbered 00-59.

For $1, a player gets a 6x6 grid like the one below.

 

07
03
21
39
49
11
59
44
53
12
45
09
52
33
43
54
23
17
31
00
29
58

28
15
41
56
18
48
42
10
46
16
55
08
04

Each row, column, and diagonal counts as a single play. You essentially get 14 plays for $1. You can also win multiple times.

Three ways to pick numbers:

Method #1 - Quick Pick

Self-explanitory.

Method #2 - Arrange The Top

This play slip allows you to choose the 6 numbers on the top row, and allows you to arrange them. All other numbers will be chosen and arranged randomly.

Method #3 - Pick Them All

Pick all 36 numbers in your game out of a standard 60-square grid (00-59), and have them arranged randomly.

And now the fun part:

 

On A Row, Column

or Diagonal

Prize

Match 5

Match 4

Match 3
$1
1 : 7.2

Overall Odds per $1 : 1 in 6.9

*Jackpots start at $250,000 all-cash, and recieve approx. 22% of sales.

Overall Payout : 55%

      I don't think it would be much of an improvement, except that your game is all cash.

        Sounds like a $1 version of the $2 Lot'O Play game.  Reducing the size and price of a bad game doesn't make it a better game. 

         * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

          Yeah, and since it would be for Texas, I would make the jackpot $500,000.  I would also keep the provision that says that only one prize per ticket can be won since you are getting 14 plays, and picking 36 numbers, you are covering over half the matrix.  The odds of winning would are way to good, and payouts could easily exceed sales on any given drawing.

          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.
