Crying............and are you going to miss them? Disapprove   

As seen on the LP Home Page, South Carolina's MegaMatch 6 is the latest to bite the dust.

Which game are you boo-hooing over?

Let's hear from you!

      Nothing has been announced, but if Illinois adds Powerball I don't think it will keep the Lotto (Pick 6, 6/52)). Lotto is Monday, Wednesday- Saturday, so for one thing Monday would be the only "stand alone" day for a Lotto drawing.

      There's 12 drawings left this year and it's only been hit 9 times. The jackpot starts at $2,000,000 and the rollovers really grind their way up. If people are offered Powerball on two of the three Lotto drawing nights the jackpots will grind even slower.

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      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.

        New York's Lotto 59 is really pathetic. At 45 million to 1 odds of winning 3 million, people are now in favor of the new Sweet Millions game. Plus, the state only ups the prixe amount 500k per drawing when its not hit. It use to be 1 million increase ... So Long Mel !!!

        Tomorrow's numbers are in Todays results!

          As long as they don't discontinue the Pick-3 or Pick-4 I am happy. 

          I have not heard of the Virginia or Georgia lotteries discontinuing anything. (My permanent residence is in Virginia but I am a student at the University of Georgia.)

          Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

          In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

            No way would they dump lotto.  That money all stays in state. (except when I will win it). The sales are just too good. That game is WAY WAY better than Wis. Megabucks that it compares to. 

            And how many big Illinois Mega Millions winners are there? None for years.

            And the same will happen if they pick up powerball...

            But all that being said,  I'm taking that Mega Millions home tonight.  Or on Thursday when I go to collect it after the snow clears!

              TN could cancel all their state games and it wouldn't bother me a bit.

                Thanks for all the responses,everyone! There sure seems to be a lot of changes coming up this next year, I can't keep up. California isn't changing anything as far as I know. They will probably be adding a Midday Pick 4 one of these days. But our SuperLotto Plus is getting old.

                I can't believe anyone would want to play the New York lottery,Rockwell, I agree. If NY ever decides to get Powerball I'm sure they will discontinue it.

                My cousin told me they used to have a game similiar to the Sweet Millions a few years back. Do you remember that?

                  Lottolaughs,

                  Why do you say our SLP is getting old/ you're scaring me.  Even though my hopes are on Fantasy Five game,  I still play SLP.  Have you heard anything?  I don't see anything on the site.  Mega Million hates me so my "splurge is from SLP.

                    Heyyyy lottocalgal!

                    It just seems the SLP has been around for quite some time. Don't get me wrong, I still prefer it to that old number field in the 50's we had before for our lotto. California doesn't seem to change their games as much as some other states. Don't worry,haven't heard anything about them cancelling it. Thumbs Up But you've got the right idea going for Fantasy 5! It's still a nice chunk of change and odds are wayyyyyyyyy better!

                      California super lotto would be my guess. What a disaster. *L*

                        The disater is the way all of the games are handled in CA Lottery; Although they have not advised lately, i.e. CA lottery commercials, I feel the games in the CA Lottery should just be re-vamp so that they are generating enough revenue to have several winners in order to attract enough new players into games; for example, if you win two numbers in Fantasy 5; it should generate at least $1.00; SL, one number minus the mega; the all of the games are getting very stale and boring.Confused

                          I can't stand the IL state lotto and would love to see it die a slow and painful death...
