Anyone just hate and I mean just can't stand a particular lottery game and wish the game would just go away? Feel free to vent your reasons as to why.

    i found my interest going downhill for powerball because of the matrix changes.they'll be a change on average of every couple years or so.don't be surprised if they change it again if the jackpot starts getting hit a lot.still looking for that pick 4 straight online eddie!!!

        My opinion is that, if you "hate" a game, don't play it. 

         

        Game:   An activity providing entertainment or amusement; a pastime.

          Absolutely, do not play it if you hate it.  You will hate it even worse if you lose.  The last thing is you will not try asert yourself or really have any fun.  It is a vicious cycle.

            I don't play Ohio Lot'O Play, but I don't hate it.  I prefer to play Rolling Cash5 and MegaMillions because I can pick all the numbers myself and they are more than enough to satisfy my gambling addiction.

              I tend to favor the jackpot games, but I can live with most any game if I'm able to cash a ticket on it.

              Come to think of it, we have a bingo scratch-off game that I have a rather strong dislike for. It's inordinately complicated and time consuming to play. And I never won any more than a very few bucks on it. Some people absolutely love this scratcher, but I think it's just an annoying exercise in masochism. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

                Hate might be too strong a word for a game. I no longer play pick 3 and have given up on Megamillions. I'm sure Mega will make a record for the most jackpots won for any year by a multistate game and I'm also sure that the Mega group will do nothing to fix it. 

                It seems that people in the government are all too eager to prevent internet gambling and offering a good game for their player at the same time. I don't know what could fix mega other than a price increase but considering how low the jackpots are and the odds mega is a bad bet.

                For pick 3 - anyone who plays now can tell you a multiyear loosing streak is not fun.

                    Keno..Don't know whose ideas was that...

                     Don't have a problem with Powerball or MegaM, but i wish they lower the range of the bonus ball from 1-46 to 1-27, just like California superlotto...

                    Wish also that we didn't have so many scratchoffs. They are worse than a pick6 i think and they are so many of them...

                      OK, I'll go with Bingo scratchers...not all scratchers, but definitely the bingo ones....they are just too much work, especially when they're losers.

                        I did not vote because I find BOTH of these games EQUALLY evil.  Yes, you read correctly: EVIL!

                          I voted for Pick 4. Extremely hard to win anything at. At least with Powerball you have a biting chance of getting some of your money back, even if the top prize is impossible. 

                          And what's with all the hating on scratch-offs? They're the best of all. They have the best odds, and have the highest payout percentages.

                            Wow, Pick Four is my favorite game. Yes it is extremely hard to hit a straight but that's why it pays so well.

                               Go to the Massachusetts Lottery website and look at their Pick 4. You don't have to hit 4.  And I'm not talking front pair / back pair.
