NY Lotto began as a 6/40 (two plays for $1) in November 1978.
I dreamt last night that NY Lotto 59 (which began the week of 9/11/2001) was becoming Lotto 62. I have no idea whether the game is about to be changed; NY just hired a new lottery director. Hopefully he will push for a hike in the ridiculously low 40% payout. For all I care, NY Lotto can go back to being annuity-only; it wouldn't lose much from me.
