NUMBER 2.   Now the question is, how would they do that?  If the jackpot is 20 million, would they draw 20 

numbers.  Do you think any state would go for it?  And would the jackpot ever really grow?  

There's another benefit, being just a million dollars, people might not go as crazy as they have in the past with

multi-million dollar jackpots.

    The draw would be just 1 set of numbers as usual. 20 people will pick the same numbers.

      Number Two. Why?

      - Because more people win money and

      - Because more numbers would be drawn, meaning, if you have a raffle, more birthdays would win.

      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!

        Great post!

        I'd like to be the first here on the LP, date stamped -  to show that this will be the new wave. It won't be soon, but I think this idea of wealth spread will become more obvious even amongst the officials who make the decisions. Maybe we should start a rally here at the LP. When can a concerned citizen, especially an LP kind, afford the possibility to overlook on such an opportunity as this? If we can't pioneer this who can?

        Power to the LP folks....!
