There are 3 things i'll like to ask you all to please participate, i am going to listen with letters: A, B & C & D..

A.   I had a question that arose in my mind recently...Like in California you see how California Super Lotto Plus co-exist with i think is MegaMillions....

My question is i don't know if MegaMillions is going to be played in all the states the same way Powerball is and if it is, superb....My question is after this is done can GENERIC POWERBALLS OR GENERIC MEGAMILLIONS [of course with a different names] exist along with Powerball & MegaMillion....I think this will be good for America and i think is needed...Example:

Powerball: Played in all 50 states...

MegaMillions: Played in all 50 states...

Generic Powerball A with a different name: Played in 20 states

Generic Powerball B with a different name: Played in 16 states

Generic MegaMillions A with a different name: Played in 22 States

Generic MegaMillions B with a different name: Played in 27 states

Generic MegaMillions C with a different name: Played in 33 states

Generic MegaMillions D with a different name: Played in 38 states

Generic Powerball C with a different name: Played in 10 states

My question is can they co-exist even if it means that this generic Powerballs & Megamillions may have to cost 2, 3 & 4 dollars each ticket...You probably say, well it will hurt the sales of other lottos but remember the winner here is the States, no matter how little the generic Powerballs may generates, the state will still make money off of them...This way all states will have winners and not make that mistake that Powerball & MegaMillions make that only a few richer states have the winners...And it will be more exiciting...Also this is better than giving 300 million to 1 person or to create a Global Poweball lotto....

But if they are going to create this generic Powerballs/MegaMillions they need to create a panel of wealth advisors that advices the winners and helps them not lose their money, look in the stock market, stock market companies have advisors who keep in touch with them [you hear about them on Ads all the time] and help them make right decisions and helps them not squander the money [or should i say years of hard work]....

 

B.      Also guys i don't know if is you or if is me, but i am starting to feel different about the lottery, not the same way i used to not anymore...I am starting to feel that people should win not more than 30-40 million dollars and higher jackpots above 70-80 millions should go into creating projects that will be important to American society...Don't you feel the same way? Stuff like "Malls with swimming pools, Libraries, a huge superwalmart but of ground food and fruits and vegetables, tall buildings complexes, gym buildings, large and affordable/cheap universities, etc...Look most of you live in the city but what about the country side, the country side lacks a lot of stuff, the country side is so behind when it comes to innovation....A lot of people that live in the country side don't have college education, etc, etc...People in the country side have to drive 1 hour to get to college and that is if they have a new car because if they don't they are out of luck...

 

C.        What about a college scholarship lottery...Look college is getting expensive and there are not many colleges & universities...The cost of college is rising more than inflation...You know how much i had to pay for college? I had to pay 20,000 dollars each year luckily i got a soccer scholarship that pay half and i am still with that debt, why i went to that college? because it was the only small 2 year college in my state that will sit down with me and teach me English and it was the cheapest college...I know this will make a big hit...But this one will have to cost 3 dollars the ticket...Also remember not every state the lottery money goes to education...Look Japan got more educated people than the USA....The lottery money going to education is not enough, REMEMBER YOU HAVE MORE PEOPLE THAN JAPAN OR ENGLAND OR RUSSIA, PLEASE REMEMBER THAT PLUS THE COST OF EDUCATION IN THE USA IS RISING DONT YOU WATCH NEWS....I am more in favor of a scholarship lottery than i am in favor of Pick4 for example...i was thinking something like a Pick4/26, that pays 2,500 a month towards a college scholarship either college full load or half a load or at someone's pace....I am begging you USA YOU NEED THIS it will be a big hit...Please USA listen to me...What if is 8 years or 9 years in college or graduate school that way the person gets 2 degrees or 3 degrees or a PHD...so you need to do this USA create a lottery that gives college and graduate school scholarships at the same time that way a person finishes his/her 5 years in college and does 3 or 4 years of graduate school....Jee i am happy about this one...USA you need this....

D.    Can someone tell me how much does a college or university cost to build, i can't find that information on the Internet is like is classified or something...

 

USA PLEASE LISTEN TO ME, YOU NEED THIS...Europe are you listening....

GUYS PLEASE LET ME KNOW YOUR OPINIONS....

Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨

    First of all.....will the REAL pumpi76 please stand up?

    A. What would the odds be for these generic games. I would be willing to play the generic games at a highter cost but if the odds are no better than MM or PB than I'm playing the one with the highest jackpot.

    B. I have always felt that I would rather see smaller jackpots and more winners. Spread the money around!

    C. A college scholarship lottery would be nice.....I'm assuming if you won this your prize would be a scholarship? Hmm ok would you be playing to go to a particular school or would your scholarship get you the school of your choice? LOL and can minors play this one cause by the time you turn 18 if you plan on going to college right after high school.....the financial end already needs to be worked out.

    D. LOL I have noooo idea. More than I could afford to pay!

      And don't forget that the price of oil is going to go up to 200 dollars and 300 dollars a barrel...

      Are you all calculating everything on the supercomputers...

        I don't worry 'bout the price of gas. I only burn 1/2 tank or less a week. I walk more than I drive. It upsets me more that every year I have to pay registration and license fee along with a city sticker fee so I can drive on these awful streets and dodge the pot holes.

        Are we calculating everything for?

        It would be nice if  the lottery would make it easier to win so that more players could benefit..............as long as the amount is enough to retire on I don't need mega millions. Unfortunately the lottery isn't trying to benefit us.
