i thought up a new jackpot game but its got an easier matrix than powerball and mega millions.the jackpot is a million dollars each draw and the matrix is having white balls numbered 1-29 and then you having blue balls numbered 1-10.its a 5/29--1/10 game.....sound like a good idea?

    Eh, I hate to break it to you but it could'nt work. You see a 29/10 type game would have odds of 1 in about 1.1 million. Just the jackpot alone would take up 91% of sales. Now if it was $2 a ticket, and you really, and I mean really go cheapo on the lower tiers, it might be feasible.

        I'd be concerned about the validity of the ball drawing. I mean, the blue balls would have to be monitored in case of premature ejaculation.  But hitting the jackpot would take on a whole new meaning.  All the losers would have to take a cold shower.

          I get it, instead of HOT Lotto, this would be COLD Lotto.

            Yeah it sounds like a good deal for the players.  OF course that means it's not a possiblility in real life.

                  Would this blue ball lottery game happen to be proposed for Pennsylvania?

                  (Check out a map of PA)

                    Wink

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                  Lep

                  There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                    I guess you'd call it Smurf Lotto...

                      PA has lots of unusual town names.  Blue Ball must be right next to Virginville and Desire, but Climax must be all the way on the other side of the state. I wouldn't want to buy my ticket in the town named Little Hope.  But I definitely belong in the one called Needmore.

                              Thanks!  I never heard of that place until now.  According to Wikipedia:

                               

                              Dildo Island, Newfoundland is the largest of three islands located at the entrance to Dildo Arm in the bottom of Trinity Bay, off the coast of the neighboring town Dildo. Dildo Island had its name before 1711.
