    According to the NH Lottery, rules for MUSL Rolldown and Annuity4Life are still on the books. As if these games will make a comeback one day.

      I saw that,  but where does it say anything about Tri-State Megabucks?  Please cpy and paste that information.

      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.

        Well, Tri-State Megabucks isn't going anywhere. There are just a lot of changes proposed. One of which involves lessening the role of the bonus ball to simply deciding the 5+Bonus category (which they call the "Arizona" concept, after the AZ's The Pick). Another involves the Lotto Silver format, which is offered by Lottery Dynamics, info on it can be found here. They are also thinking of a 6/44 matrix, a new price point system (1 for $1, 3 for $2, and 8 for $5), and an instant win feature. I'd really like to see the finished product on this thing. It's gonna be cool, I just know it.

          From what I've been reading, TSM will be _replaced_. It served its purpose; ME and VT should have joined New Hampshire in selling Hot Lotto, rather than looking into a bigger TSM.

          Lotto Kentucky started out with the exact $1, $2, and $5 options. I don't really think the "instant win" idea is a good one. Leave it for scratch tickets.

              ME, NH, and VT had a good idea back in the 80s and 90s, but now that good idea just turned into a really bad one.  If one state doesn't agree, then a motion won't pass. I think that the only reason that VT and ME go in with NH on the tri-state games is because VT and ME do not have the funds available to run their own lotteries.  Seriously, the drawings for the tri-state games are held in NH.  NH joined Powerball from the start (Don't give me this "ME was in Lotto America" crap! They pulled out and that was a stupid move!), and about 10 or so years later, VT and ME joined, and if it's still around, 5 bucks says that Hot Lotto wil be next to go to ME's and VT's lineups.  They need NH to stay afloat.

                Powerball began in 1992. New Hampshire joined MUSL in 1995.

                ME and VT have never offered Hot Lotto.
