I have no objection at all to other states joining, but I do object vehemently to them jacking up the matrix to make the odds even more extreme!
That's what happens when they add a state though.
Peope get excited over the promise of bigger jackpots. The "Possible $500,000,000 Jackpot" with the addition of California to Mega Millions hasn't happened yet, not even close.
I rhink I'd rather see a third multi-state entity (something beyond the three state Win for Life) than I would anymore Powerball or Mega Million expansions.
Teh already near impossible odds just get ridiculous.
Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.
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.
