Today i read that they came up with a new game in indiana, called: mix & match. Is a pick5 from 1 to 50? Each ticket costs 2 dollars, but you get 2 more tickets free. The jackpot is 200,000. A 4 of 5 tickets is 500 dollars and 3 of 5 is 10 dollars. It plays twice a week. I still can't understand the "combined lines section"...Jee!, who is going to get those numbers right, like 1-35 is not too much? But again, the hoosier lottery, they are so stingy.
I already see that game failing, not making it. Is 1-50, plus each ticket cost 2 dollars. What they don't know is that by raising the prize to 2 dollars, they are setting a limit to how much people can bet. The price of each tickets, tells how much people will bet. A game like that guarantees that 99.7 number of bets are going to be less than 20 dollars. If the game had been 1-28, then i would have said that is a great thing they did. You will have to be a fool to play such a game, the way it is...And not only that, they set the jackpot to be 200,000. If each ticket had cost 25 cents, and what you win is 50,000, then i would had said that is the typical State mentality . Just to prove that they just add numbers but they don't simulate or do research. I sometimes wonder, whose ideas is that comes up with these games...What they need to do is come up with another pick6 game that guarantees starting jackpot of 3 million dollars, and increase by 500,000 each time the jackpot is not won...What you all think?
"more important than winning all of the states' lotteries, is the movie "Red Planet""....
