I wasn't even aware they were ending the game.  This is what is on the UK Lottery web site:

Lotto Extra has come to an end, with the final draw held on 8th July 2006.

    Was it a popular game? I've never heard of it.

      It was an interesting add-on game.  It uses the same results as regular UK Lotto, but it is an all-or-nothing game -- you either win the big jackpot or you win nothing.  No small prizes.  It made the jackpot get much bigger, but I think people like winning small "consolation" prizes.

          Welcome back Todd. Just wondering if you got a vacation finally. Kind of a useless addon esp. since I couldn't get tickets for it.

            Welcome back?  I've been here every day.  Do you miss me when I don't post ever hour, or don't step into every argument? Big Grin

              Everyone needs a vacation once in a while if just for their sanity. Hadn't seen any posts in a while so I figured you got a chance to escape.

                It is very difficult to even take off one day.  There are so many different things that I am constantly updating throughout the site that I end up working on Lottery Post 365 days per year.  Kind of like not being able to take a break from breathing.

                  How long did the UK Lotto Extra last? How much did people pay for this extra add-on Todd?

                    NY Lotto is a bit like the late UK Lotto Extra. If you don't win the jackpot, but you win a lower tier prize, the return is just over zero.
