There are people who will play regardless. Just like casinos, the lotteries are in the greed and ego business as much as they are the gambling and entertainment business.  

"100 number matrix? I'll be the one to hit it!"

Too many people think like that and that's why the matrixes increase.

    Coin Toss: "Who needs $200 million or so anyway? And the apparent curse that goes with it."

    My feelings exactly.  I've said it before..if I won about $5M I'm sure I'd be set for life, probably start a small business I enjoy, and then I could spend my spare time volunteering. I've known people who suddenly had so much money it made them miserable (I can't imagine, but it happens)

    Anyway, I voted no, but I'd rather vote "I hope not."  I know monster jackpots attract more people, but I'll never understand why.

    No!  I'd need $200 million to hang with stars.  Paris will be my best friend and you'll see us in Star magazine together. 

    My desire to hang out with idiots like Paris Hilton is already low and I doubt a jackpot win would improve on it.

    Any combined game would have to have really high odds so as to have prizes worth winning. A move away from inflated annuities would be a good start. The only reason I play Euromillions is that it's currently tax free and all cash. If it were taxed or another bloated annuity I wouldn't play.
