A game can always be made whereby a simple pick 6 with lower odds (such as 6/42) plays ONLY when its jackpot is over $20 million.
This way the people aren't punished by making their terrible odds worse.
The only thing is that there may be as many as 5 or 10 winners sometimes, but that would be just wonderful these days. I would rather see 5 winners than NO winners.
This is another suggestion that you can all email your political representatives. They are the law-makers.
To be honest I would just be glad if they simply raised the payout rate on the smaller games up to 70 or 80 percent. Such as on the Pairs, Pick 3 and Pick 4. Right now and since they started, they have been set at 50 percent or worse.
Also, Pick 5 in Virginia is 5 of 34, and some states even have it worse than 34! But even at 5 of 34, the payout is worse than Pick 4. For this reason I will play Pick 4 now, essentially boycotting the Cash-5. The $100,000 prize of Cash-5 should mathematically be closer to 140 or $150,000 !
