Any thoughts on the fact that Delaware's computerized Multi-Win Lotto (MWL) has not been won in 60 drawings? It is drawn 3 days a week, and is a PA Match 6 clone formated as a Pick 6/35 with 3 lines for combination wins, and like it's PA counterpart, costs $2. The prize starts at $50,000 and increases by $2000 per drawing when it is not won. Presently it is at an all time record of $170,000.

 This is starting to look like the old Lotto's demise all over again....

    It might be considered a "Lemons" of a game except it's all cash. Has Delaware ever SERIOUSLY considered Hot Lotto? Look what Delaware has been missing out on lately.

      I hope someone from DE wins a Lotto to stop the winning streak. Is this game have cash value? I think DE should join Hot Lotto and/or MM or PB soon.

          In Delaware, all games except Powerball are lump sum. Delaware is one of the orignal Powerball states (when it was called Lotto America).

            As much as I would like to see Delaware get Hot Lotto, I'm not counting on it. Delaware would actually be better replacing MWL with Mega Millions, becoming the only state to sell both PB and MM.

                Between the lottery falling on its face and Pennsylvania opening the new slots casino in Chester (and eventually Philadelphia), the state will probably have to raise taxes.

                  1) The Delaware Lotto is RIGGED!

                  2) It defies ALL patterns naturally found in randomness. 

                  I played it for a long time to come to those two conclusions.

                  3) Before they revised the current game, nobody had won in months.  Then, the very last time the game was selected, there WAS a winner BUT there was absolutely no publicity on who it was, where the ticket was purchased, etc.

                  It was SO convenient that that last drawing had A winner.

                  I might have been born last week but I wasn't born yesterday!

                  I believe its computer scans everyone's combinations in the window of time before the (rigged) numbers are riggingly selected to maximize the state's profit, frustrate players, and inspire nonthinking others to buy even more tickets.

                  Solution? DON'T PLAY COMPUTERIZED LOTTERY GAMES!  If we ALL did that, they'd either do away with the games or with the computer.  Either way, YOU WIN!  But if you PLAY, you LOSE!

                    I have no idea why Delaware passed on Hot Lotto when it began in 2002, or later that year when Pennsylvania joined MUSL. Delaware is home to tax-free shopping. A better idea is to improve its lineup of lottery games.
