I think we need a creative alternative to Powerball & Megamillions: a National Keno Game-- a 10-20-80 game.  The prize for all ten numbers?  $1,000,000 tax free (or put the prize at $1,400,000+ so that after taxes you walk away with a cool million.

Keno games have unique characteristics and I only wish the state I live in had one or develops one!

A National Keno Game, held every Monday or Thursday evening, I think would start to undue the Megamillions and Powerball fatigue that has set in and has been around for a while.

Let's make playing a national jackpot game fun again, instead of a near exercise in futility.

      A national Keno game should be like the old PA Super 7, which had a jackpot (and longer odds.) However, it was annuity-only, so that would have to be updated.

        I'd like to see a national lottery, but I'm not sure Keno with $1,000,000 prize, tax free or not, could compete with what's already out there.

          The KENO game we have in MD. plays every 3 minutes, on video screens all over the state, just like in the casinos. Do you mean a single pick game twice a week or a continuosly running game that runs in establishments subscribed to it?  jarasan

            Actuallyl, I was thinking of just once a week, with lower tiered prizes of course.

              As has been alluded to in this thread, I don't think Keno players would be satisfied with once or twice a week games.
