honestly the odds are so bad on the mega millions that I really don't see a good reason for an even larger national lottery.
I would be so glad if the state lotteries would just simply increase their payout ratios from 50% to about 60 to 80 percent. Email your representatives regularly, though. They really should hear their people.
If they could, for example, raise the Pick3 prize from $500 to $750 , and so on, etc. I would be so glad. Some online lotteries already do it for as much as a 80 or 90 percent payout! Plus, the economy really needs the people to win more ! Even the lotteries need more business !
They should at least do it for all of 2009, imo, given the global economic crisis. Just don't bother to call your lottery with suggestions. I've done that and it just goes out their other ear. They don't write the rules, but if you contact your representative and governor, they usually are more motivated to listen to you.
