Somebody mentioned that Tri-State Megabucks might be changed to include a second way to play ($1 or $2 a ticket) that would create bigger jackpots.

I think maybe MUSL could experiment it with Hot Lotto, a VERY good game that is not a big seller.

    "TRI-STATE LOTTO COMMISSION
    New Hampshire Lottery
    Concord, NH

    OCTOBER 7, 2005, 10:30 A.M.

     

    DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE

    It was determined that the next release that everyone can do together to launch the new and improved Megabucks is April 30, 2006.  The release after that is August 22.  The hold up is the proposed research which is being evaluated.  The committee has narrowed down game concepts that they would like to research.  They are the Lotto Silver Add-on and an Arizona version of a pick game, a classic lotto game with a bonus ball that only applies to the second tier level, and a classic lotto buy-up concept.  Scientific Games is working on matrices for two of the games, not Lotto Silver, that will work with our population base.  They will get back to us with their recommendations.  Scientific Games is also working on a time line for the research so we can find out if we can get it done and meet the December 30th deadline for game specs.  Plans are to have the Business Plan completed and out to everyone before the December commission meeting.  Recommendation and approval will have to be acted upon at the December meeting.  Lottery testing will begin early April.  We are trying to pull the three states’ testing together so perhaps the testing could go a little easier.  Subscription testing will also be included.

              Two for Tuesdays has been tested by Scientific Games so this game can begin in early 2006.  Specs have yet to be drafted."

      I wonder how Two for Tuesdays would work. Maybe played like Kansas & Nebraska's 2by2?

        Oh, 2by2. That brings up something else. In February, North Dakota will join 2by2.

          Since 2by2 has a top prize of $20,000 and doesn't jackpot, it should have been a single-state game (then again it had to be a MUSL game for North Dakota to sell it).

            CASH Only, I think they should add a bonus ball game [Lotto Silver] so that people can win if they match 2 plus bonus ball, 3 plus bonus, 4 plus bonus, and 5 plus bonus. However, the jackpot will still be won with 6 numbers.

              That's a good idea. But I think we'll start seeing a second price point for higher jackpots.
