            Not sure. I think CA has enough games. They just added the MegaMillions last year and pick 3 midday not too long ago. Sometimes you can spread yourself too thin. Keep fewer games and bigger jackpots!!

              LM, We used to have a game that resembled Pick-4, using playing cards. I think also WA State had the same game called Quatro. Some years back CA done away with the Pick-4 game, I can't recall what it was called, and replaced it with Daily Derby. DD is like playing two Pick-3 games. DD ticket is $2 per play. Hardly anyone played the Pick-4 game, and I wonder why DD is still around.      Sunny Escondido, California John

                Why would California Lottery Officials or the State government be afraid the players would win too much money?  California has para-mutuel wagering on all the games.  It does not hurt the state of California if there are a lot of winners.

                  I truly believe that is the reason because the states would lose too much money.

                    Please explain to me how California would lose any money.

                      Calif had the game "Deco" pick one card from each suit... the good ole days before pari-mutual prizes! I know someone that played all the 4 of kinds every draw. If i remember right  you got a replay for matching 1, $5 for match 2, $50 for match 3 and $5000 for match 4. The quad never came up!
