Now for Poll #5, can the Wisconsin Lottery make it two for two? Or can Oregon Megabucks' kicker feature kick SuperCash to the curb?

    Since the OR lottery switched to computer drawings the jackpots have been in the dumper.

    WI's lottery is also computer drawn so it's really tie at the bottom of the barrel for both games.

      It would be a good chance to remind people to sign the petition against computer drawings.

      Computer drawings equal games you can't trust.

      Televised ball drawings equal games you can trust.

      Too bad many lottery operators have forgoten that.

        I say Wisconsin Supercash is better since the OR game's cash option is exactly half of the annuity, instead of a (higher) floating percentage, since it's a relatively short annuity. (While the Powerball cash option is less than half of the annuity, PB lump-sum winners are not cheated because the cash value represents the true present-day value of the annuity.)

        BTW both states should have Hot Lotto (Wisconsin has a game with the same name as OR's.) As both states are computerized they cannot use that as an excuse not to join HL.

        Also, the fact that OR has a LOSE for Life online game doesn't help OR. Lose for Life, also computerized, is six years old this month.

            How can you expect folks to vote on something they are not familiar with nor care about ???

            Why do I care about another state's lottery ?   I don't even care about my own state's lottery.    I'm not alone.  (all I play is PB).

            Just being honest in why you are not seeing any votes, or would you rather folks that really have no idea just flip a coin and pick an answer ?

              I also don't care about the WA state lottery. Lotto plus was alright but lotto now is a joke. Rarely a good jackpot. Also I don't like computer drawn games.

              Quinto occationally has some good jackpots considering it's low odds and cash payouts and Mega has just been a complete waste of time. I don't know why the comparison between WA and WI since playing both games would require a long trip and I'd rather play the UK lottery rather than either lottery.

                I don't live in either of those states but I voted for Megabucks because it sounds better than SuperCash.Approve

                    My vote is Oregon Megabucks. I like their 6 number game.
