LoP began October 9. In less than two months, sales have dropped by nearly half, even though the jackpot has never been won.

    I am putting down "March". But I would not count April or May out for the poll?

    The game is not doing well. They do need a change quickly.

    I personally liked when they brought back "2 plays" for a $1 in the field of 1/53 for a match 6, years ago?

    But that one did not last long either.

      You don't just give up on something.  It takes time to blossom.  Reemberwhen Match 6 started?  It took time for it to catch on.

      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.

        I like Match 6, but wouldn't consider it a success story.  The jackpot numbers don't seem to get "there" often enough. You mostly have to reply on the extra numbers the extra buck provides to win small amounts.  Compared to NY/NJ 6, the $2M+ are dismal.

        Cheers

          Match 6 has a 53% payback, and is all cash. NY Lotto's prize return is 38%-40%.

            The 12/10 LoP had its lowest payback yet for a Saturday. The 214k was even lower than the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
