I hope MUSL is still working on it. I'd like to see it happen.

    I would too. It actually seems worth the $2 price, and I guarantee it will set new records if it goes forward. I just hope they use balls if they actually do the Blue Game.

        From what I know about it, the only thing I have a concern about is the second prize ($1 million annuity with cash option)-would the cash value be fixed at 500k, or would it be a floating percentage of the annuity?

          Seeing as how the MUSL uses a floating percentage of the annuity for the cash values of the Powerball and Hot Lotto jackpots, I'd guess that they would do the same if this game were to be implimented.

          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.

            With a $2 ticket price, it would take weeks upon weeks of rollovers to make any notable jackpot, which will make Powerball's rollovers look strong!!

              The Idaho website said plans for the Blue Game had been discontinued. This was discussed at a lottery meeting in October or November (I forget which month).
