Ok this would tick me off.

They estimated the jackpot to be $2,000,000 for tonights drawing.  Everyone goes out and buys tickets because they assume there will be a winfall.

Well guess what Thursday's jackpot is.  $2,000,000 still.  What BS is that?

According to their website the top prize was only $1,973,961 for tonights drawing.

Are they allowed to do that.  That is a load of crap.  The jackpot was only $25,000 away from $2,000,000 so they don't have a winfall.  That is kind of cheap if you ask me.

    infortunately they can, since they staten that their jackpot amounts are estimates based on sales, and that may not be what they really pay out to a jackpot-winning ticket.

    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.

      hence why some states, such as WI, AZ, and TX take more than one drawing to get the jackpot past the starting amount.

        This is exactly what I predicted in my post the other day.

          At the last minute I changed my mind and did not go. Ca$h WinFall is such a great game, I hope the "false alarm" doesn't hurt future sales. I still would rather play CW than Megabucks!

            I say boycott the MA lottery because of this, or at least thursday's drawing of cash winfall. They obviously did this on purpose. The lottery's profit is about $100k on most drawings, but it's close to $1m when they predict a winfall. Now they get $1m profit in back-to-back drawings????? Well wasn't it lucky for them that they overestimated the jackpot!!!

            Yeah, it's a fun game, and has a 1 in 6 chance of winning. But don't let their bullying work. Teach them a lesson. Indiana started tightening up scratch ticket security not because insiders started cashing all of the winners, but because people stopped playing the corrupt scratch tickets. Likewise, the only way to keep the MA lottery estimators honest is to keep them from profiting from it.

            So don't play, and tell your friends not to play. Because otherise this BS will just keep happening.

              Tonight's CW is $1,050,000. The game is over a year and a half old, and is still looking for its first million-dollar winner.

                I've had almost no luck with this game, just one free play. But it's probably the best lotto game out there, with a 60% payout.

                  Did someone win the Mass. Cash yet close to $2 million? If not, is the current jackpot just went over $2 million?

                    There has yet to be a million-dollar-or-more CW jackpot winner. The game has been hit only three times in the nearly 20 months CW has been around.

                        $500,000. When the jackpot is hit, or reaches $2 million, the next jackpot is a half million in cash.

                          Is the game computerized or ball drawn? Is the game all cash only, annunity only, or annunity with people can choose the cash option?

                            CA$H WinFall is CA$H. No annuity. MA Megabucks is annuity-only.

                            Ca$h WinFall is ball-drawn.
