    I sure would...the odds seem to be better.  There would be so many winners that it may not roll over to very high numbers though.

          MUSL Hot Lotto is 5/39 + 1/19. I don't think you'd get above $10 million very often.

            That was my thought exactly. But I'd still play it.

              That came concept it really close to something I proposed to the Michigan Lottery:

              With better odds and all cash jackpots

              Match 5 numbers from a pool of 39 and one number from a pool of 25

              Tickets are only $2.00

              (Buy 5 get two free)

              Drawing Nights: Mondays and Thursdays at 7:29pm

              Payout: 60% of sales

              Prize payout breakdown** (% of sales):

              ~15% = lower tier prizes, excess goes into reserve

              35% goes to fund jackpot

              10% goes to fund progessive

              White Balls Matched Super Number Match Prize                         Odds

              5                              Yes                    JACKPOT!!*            14,393,925

              5                                No                    Progressive*            599,747

              4                              Yes                      $2000                   84,670

              4                              No                        $75                      3528

              3                              Yes                        $75                        2566

              3                              No                        $5                          107

              2                            Yes                          $7                          241

              1                              Yes                         $3                             62

              0                              Yes                         $2                             52

              OVERALL ODDS ARE APPROXIMATLEY 1 in 20

              * Match 5 + Super wins the jackpot. Jackpot pays all in cash and starts at $500,000 and increases by at least $50,000 for each drawing.

              Match 5 only. Starts at $15,000 and increases every drawing by a certain percentage of sales until won

              I don't know what Michigan should replace Classic Lotto 47 with but they need to do it soon.

                In WI we already have a 5/31 game with no bonus ball. But it's a buck per line. THe jp can get into the 6-figure area. I've never seen it over #120,000. Not easy getting even 5/31 with no BB. THe best I ever had was 4of5...and that was on a Quick Pick !

                  "Once everyone STOPS playing PowerRipoff and MegaRipoff, for at least 3 months, the lottery powers that be will abandon these games with no money coming in OR offer a 5/35 game with a bonus ball field of 1-10 for those of us out here in Lottoland who would be happy with a jackpot of $25.mil. and MORE concerned about a number field that is REASONABLE and somewhat PLAYABLE."

                  It would have been real nice, L.Mike, if you could have given me credit, for the above poll idea, given that your post follows very neatly chronologically, on the heels of my above quoted post, in a topic you started yesterday.

                  Any avid reader of my posts, if h/she does a search, will see that I argue consistently for lower number field "jackpot" games, give abundant reasons, and in fact, here at LP I coined the words, "PowerRip" and "MegaRip".  No need to repeat those reasons to those who would like to read most of my posts via the search engine.

                  However, one of the problems in our world is that nobody gives credit or attribution when ethics or integrity would require it.

                  I'm not listed as "one of the top 25 posters" and I was not voted as one of the most "popular" posters (whatever that means!) but when I do post I bring reason and careful thought to what I say.

                  Like I presume you are, I too am an avid student of the game and all the theory, analyses, and strategies behind it. 

                  I have read Howard, Roberts, Salieu, Jones, and many others just as fine(including many wonderful and helpful posters here at LP) and nothing I could write or invent would diminish their careful thought in any way.

                  However, I have three ideas in the works that I will only make brief reference to here.  One is a book "on the lottery" that I am certain will sell; the second is a software idea with a unique and interesting type of analysis that is my own because I have yet to see it elsewhere; the third is an idea that even if I tried to describe it, it would be lifted or stolen.

                  Using my applied analysis and understanding of others' lottery theory, some of which I have talked about in my posts, for the record, (for those that I think I am full of hot air) I have been able to nail 4 out 6 numbers in the Pick 6 not once, not twice, not three times, but four times and all within just over a year's period of time.  And though I do not oppose the use of wheels, I nailed those four 4/6 wins without using a single one, another topic in some of my posts.

                  We all learn from each other.  In fact, those that have read some of my posts know that I defend one known writer whose work is often derided, demeaned, and dismissed (should I say "trashed"?) by some who put forth no careful or cogent thought whatsoever. 

                  Which brings me to your post on the heels of my own quoted above.  I can only hope that you and everyone here will properly credit, give attribution, or proper reference to those that inspire their own thoughts or thinking.  I try to do that and if I haven't, I will make efforts to correct that.  Will you?

                    If I got 5 dollars minimum for matching the bonus ball because my algos do well with that. If the non-Jackpot prizes were decent; for 1+bonus I want 20 dollars. It sounds a lot like HOT Lotto, which I have not played much and have never won anything on. It would be a better deal than the nj Pick 6.

                    I would like it better if Mega Millions merged with Powerball so I don't have to go to PA to play Powerball. If that happened, jackpots of 1 BILLION would not be unusual!
