Well I guess I may as well make its own thread about this new game. I am surprised that this is not  yet in the lotter news section. I only got 2 QP's the first time and only matched one number. This seems very hard even with 11 numbers drawn. I like the payouts though and hope that the jackpots rise quicky. $200,000 is pretty good to start, which is what it went up to.

 

03/13/09
Winning Numbers: 19  27  28  30  32  38  41  43  55  66  71

0 Players matched 7 of 11, Jackpot rolls to $1,200,000.00
6 Players matched 6 of 11, each receiving $8,303.00
148 Players matched 5 of 11, each receiving $547.00
2,309 Players matched 4 of 11, each receiving $26.50
18,599 Players matched 3 of 11, each receiving $2.00

 

I bet those 6 players are happy yet very pissed. But splitting the jackpot 6 ways would have not been so great but still good. I for one do not want to beat such high odds one time in my life then have to share it.

    when are people going to realize that the odds of the game are the odds of the game.the odds measure the true difficulty no matter how you make the game......the win with 7 out of 11 part makes it seem that its easier since they are giving you 4 more numbers than the 7 required to win...but when you look at the ..out of 77 part...and you look at the odds of 7.3 miilion..then it becomes clear that its not so easy...the 2nd and 3rd prize payouts on average will be low too...the starting *cash* jackpot for this game is only $400,000 cash...which is really low compared to the odds ($1 million is annuity for 30 years)......most likely 90% of winners will choose cash option...i say ditch this game and play cash 5...

      Odds don't really mean squat to me. Someone always wins eventually. I already beat the odds for Big 4 three times (1 in 10,000) playing only $1 each time, and I know people who have played their whole life not even won boxed. I think the so-called "odds" are perfect for this game because they are nowhere near as bad as powerball. This keeps the jackpot higher and still winnable to only one player most likely.

      Cash 5 is fine, but the jackpots are generally always low. When it gets to $2-3 million, if ever; there are like 3 or 4 winners. So it isn't that great either. I don't buy into the whole "odds" theory, as there are many other intangibles and factors that can play a role in winning. I will take annuity until at least $750,000 after taxes.

        I actually predicted that it grow $200K if there was no winner. If only the numbers could be predicted that easily.

        It probably seems hard because the overall odds are 1 in 17, while Cash 5 is about 1 in 11, and Match 6 was about 1 in 6. But it's still easier to win than Powerball or most other $1mil+ jackpot games.

          i was more trying to bring to the surface the "gimmicks" or advertising tricks and verbiage the lotteries use in making their games by appearing them to be or sounding so good...yes its true that one person can be lucky at any time ..or multiple times like you have done (i like your $1 each time btw)....however i disagree that the odds dont mean squat...yes of course they do mean smth...wasnt trying to sound like since that game odds are big to overcome doesnt mean it can't be won....someone winning eventually means there were a high number of participants (millions) ..you just hope to be the lucky one among all those millions...

            Ohhhh it went up $600,000 this time. ($2,600,000) That is $65,000 a year for 30 years after taxes. Not bad. I hope to get $100,000 a year for 30 years. ($3million)

              Just got 4 out of 7 for a buy one get one free ticket. I thought I had it being all the numbers were matching. Best so far out of about 5 tickets, and I probably won $20-$30 dollars which is pretty good for $2.00 spent. I hope to get the big one soon.
