It's a good idea especially if they have 0 and/or 00 as the bonus ball. Most quick picks will have numbers ranging from 1 to the maximum number. With this idea, if 0 or 00 come out as bonus, it will roll no matter what.

    How bout a wild ball added to the white balls an if it is drawn you can plug into any nonmatched number on an individual playline? so say you mathced two white balls and the wild ball is drawn that would make it three matched and increase you prize amount. What ya think?

    I'd buy that for a dollar. Thumbs Up

      An extra white ball would give all the 4 of 5 winners one more shot at 5 + 0 but there would have to be an extra prize for 5 of 5 plus extra. Overall the extra white ball seems like a good idea to me.

        Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that a wild ball, when drawn, would practically guarantee a jackpot win every time, so I don't see that happening. If the jackpot gets won too often, like it did in winter of 2005, sales tank, as it appears PB/MM players would rather dream about winning than actually win.

          A "wild ball" might work if it doesn't affect the jackpot.

              Then the wild ball would guarantee nobody wins the jackpot. That wouldn't really be fair to those who had the four non-wild white balls and the red Powerball.

                The wild ball is added to the Powerball/Megaball pool not the white balls. A seperate 5+wild ball prize would be created. The pot would automatically roll.

                  That's a great idea. But we may never see it.
