Whoopeedo!  The new starting Jackpot for Cash 5, NOW a 5/43 game, is $125,000.

25,000 more for adding FOUR more numbers to the number field?

What a disgrace.

        crap like this is why i don't even play anymore.the consumer is being cheated left and right and every couple years they raise the matrix more and more and most lottery players keep on playing anyway.powerball will end up having 65 or 70 balls in the next five years....

            Dont play the Cash5 anymore and work on the pick 3 and 4's. No big jackpots, but much better odds. Just make the decision to stop playing that pick5 once and for all and move on to greener pastures. Best of Luck !

              you are wrong to a certain extent....play less $ or less frequently is better...Even with the game nearly doubling the previous odds..it is still the best jackpot game in PA...it has 5 times better odds than match 6, it is better than PB match 5...and the jackpots will roll more often than in the past...pick 3 and 4 are not jackpot games so i will dismiss them as alternatives (they are not greener pastures)...the majority of people play it to hit it big...(by the way ever since the new format there have been 4 jackpot winners in a row...)

              The second price % distribution of winnings is not right (odds 1:5066)...

              Bottom line ...The gaming officials know the players ...they conduct studies that show the demographics., what backgrounds..how smart....how people react ..When they made the decision to go to 43 it was done because it is good for business...There are no better games odds wise with a similar payout rolling daily....Here is how it works...

              1.Advertise BIGGER JACKPOTS...(<<yeah right)..(while keeping relatively quiet the drastic change in odds and % distribution in other categories)

              2.Throw in a free QP ticket when you buy 5...(LURE THEM IN BAIT)

              3. LUCK on their SIDE..when you have 4 in a row winners (along with no 40s balls yet drawn to show change..hmmm) with the new game it is bound to make people beleive it is easy to win

              ---The change WORKED Brilliantly...IT ALWAYS WORKS..of course...LOL

              They will still play....STAY TUNED for more STENCH in the days to come....LOL

                as soon as one state executes one of its brilliant new sucker games that players fall for then other states take notice and copy the formula to its own benefit.such as the trend of computerized draws which the wicked witch here in tennessee decided to implement since here employees were 'tired' of fooling around with the ball machines for hours every day.i could not believe that when i read it.that and it costs less money were the directors excuse here in tennessee to change to RNG.

                      You know what, Benmas, or is your real name Jimmy Sands?

                      Ever since I posted on the STENCH here in PA, Jimmy has been silent, GONE!  POOF-- just like that!

                      He did his damage and now he's gone.  I called him out in another post but funny thing was he never responded or showed up at the LP Corral.  I guess he couldn't stand the heat.  The heat of the TRUTH!

                      Benmas, or Jimmy, or whatEVER your name is, you are just trying to get us to accept INJUSTICE.  No different than the people in the '60's trying to get us to accept separate water fountains.

                      Nope.  Separate is NOT equal!

                      My point?  5/43 is NOT 5/39!

                      Wake up and SMELL THE STENCH!  Something is DECAYING around here!
