This is interesting

For the rest of the month the Illinois lottery will be randomly printing "Mega Tripler" on Mega Millions tickets sold.  If you have Mega Tripler on your ticket and you win a $2, $3, $7 or $10 prize you prize is automatically tripled.  Interesting concept but they shouldn't stop on the $10 prize.

    Well, good news for the people winning these prizes [$2, $3, $7, or $10] with "Mega Tripler" in Illinois. I wonder what are the odds of people getting "Mega Tripler?"

      Are they only doing that in Illinois or are other MM states going to offer this?

          The Illinois Lottery probably can't afford to triple any prizes over $10.

            NY should try something like this with MM. It would further erode NY Lotto sales.

              Don't you ever get tired of mindlessly bashing NY Lotto?

                I live in NY state. Somebody here has to complain about its terrible payouts. BTW Yankee manager Joe Torre and I now have something in common-we both live in Mahopac (Torre's is a summer home).

                  Considering how often Mega gets hit lately they would have to triple the jackpot.

                    How has Illinois fare on "Mega Tripler" tickets so far?

                        My husband got a mega tripler on his ticket Friday and actually won the $7.00 prize which they tripled to $21.00.  Btw, Green ball coming to IL beginning 8/1.

                          Yes, this thread is about Illinois, not NY. I simply wish NY would do this, which would further help the migration of players from NY Lotto to Mega Millions.

                          Everybody on LP needs to know that NY Lotto should be avoided like the plague.

                              The Illinois Lottery probably listens to the public more than the NY Lottery does. Ohio periodically surveys its players on new game concepts. NY never does that.
