Everybody should know that NY Rotto has cheap prizes (eg matching 3/6 wins ONE DOLLAR!!) The only time I played Mega Millions in Texas (last October) I won $6 (MB times 3).

        My vote is for MegaPlier. I don't like it when you only get $1 for 3/6 in NY Lotto.

          I used to deliver NY Lottery New$ 1993-2001. There were many weeks I had to go to Rockland Co, including "permanently" for the last few months, starting the week before 9/11.

            Quoting CASH Only,

             "Two games for a buck is NOT a bargain when you're playing for only 38-40 cents on the dollar."

             Dude,

            They aren't playing for 38-40 cents.  They are playing for the jackpot. 

            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.

              That is so true. When the jackpot gets to a certain level, players won't care about the payout percentage.

                I don't think they care about the payout percentage in the first place.  I think that most people play to win the jackpot.

                  That's why NY Rotto hasn't changed in nearly five years, even after NY joined Mega Millions. NY has so many dumb lottery players.

                    I have noticed that sales for the game went down since NY joined Mega Millions.  Also, remember that players will play whichever game has the bigger jackpot, and quite a few play both.  Remember that sometimes Mega Millions will have the bigger jackpot, and sometimes Lotto will have the bigger jackpot.

                      Within NY state, Mega Millions long passed Rotto in sales, so I know I'm not the only one who knows NY Rotto has a terrible payout %. But too many people still don't care, and are afraid that if they stop playing NY Rotto, they'll miss out on a jackpot.
