1:2 million win one million dollars(or smaller prizes) or 1:3 odds that you'll double your money?

    Personally, I'd rather see easier odds on the big jackpot games so there would be more millionaires more often. I think the better odds would increase sales as well as the humongous jackpots do now.

    The odds are too ridiculous now in an effort to draw people with the possibility of being a mega multi millionaire.

    I'd rather see more winners and know my chance was better to be one of them than it is now.

        MegaMillions $12M - $250M jackpots with odds of 1:175,711,536.

        Classic Lotto $1M - $36M jackpots with odds of 1:13,983,816.

        Rolling Cash5 $100K - $500K jackpots with odds of 1:575,757

        Take you pick.

          I could get one in two odds of doubling my money with roulette (red or black).  I would probably go for the large jackpot.

              Jackpot is king, smaller prizes are just the pond.

                It appears that Ohio is keeping it real.

                If you think you can or if you think you can't you are right!

                  I love sharpening my skills on all the games. From Pick-3 to Mega Millions. I study and practice on all of the TX lotteries. With the expectation of winning a jackpot every time.

                    Good luck trying to win TX lottery with those crazy number that were posted Saturday night!!    I think TX has a computer clich !!

                    I would love to watch the balls on a tv network.  My odds are hitting 2 to 3 numbers each and every draw....  Something must be messed up somewhere.

                    Lots of Luck from Katy, TX

                      Several lotteries will be having raffles in the next couple of months that usually have prizes from $500 to $1 million. Five or six chances of winning $1 million for 20 bucks is a pretty good bet.

                        Tx has mech ball machines, not computer draws. Tx lotto had 5 decades play last Saturday from teens to fifties. I didn't think the numbers were abnormal. Except they weren't my numbers, LOL.

                          i prefer to play big jackpot game (and it is the only kind i play) because anything below a $1million, isnt really life changing in my opinion - well at least for me.

                          i understand everyone has a different lifestyle - thus im only speaking for myself.

                           

                          therefore i only play the MM, Powerball, and Euromillions

                            Seriously , It could be a 50/50 draw and I can bet my paycheck each time that I'd lose! That is the only bet I can win and lose all in one shot!

                            After awhile I become immune to the *odds* and play simply because its a hoot to try systems and patterns. Someday that ship will come in , until then the *odds* are in the gamers favor to play or not to play.
