My vote is to eliminate all computerized drawings. What should CA do next with their lotto games?

    Having ball drawings for all their games is the obvious "should", but it's not going to happen. What could happen is a return to the classic 6/51 Super Lotto, or an even bigger long shot, the return of the Lotto 6/49.

      Yeah, CA should revert to the classic straight pick 6 game. Powerball and Mega Millions pretty much have saturated the pick 5+1 market.

        Here's the problem JimmySand9, CA's population is at 37+ million and CA SLP Jackpot odds are at 41.5 million to 1. That's why CA should keep the 5+1 bonus game. If they go back to 6/49 or 6/51, more people will keep winning. I want computerized drawings OUT. I would suggest CA SLP increase the odds of winning the jackpot by increasing a few WBs, but keep odds of winning at around 1 in 25.

          I like the idea of CA going back to a 6/x format. IHO 6/59 would work well.

            If you don't like games that keep being won all the time, you should stick to Powerball or Mega Millions. CA SLP should go back to a straight pick 6 format so California has a jackpot game for players who play for a reasonable chance at winning a lower jackpot amount (a pick 6 Lotto) and a jackpot game for players who dream about winning (Mega Millions). It's for this same reason that the MUSL invented Hot Lotto (which would be better in a straight pick 6 format as well) in addition to Powerball.
