"The problem with both Powerball and MM is that they both draw moneyfrom the states' games--for those states that have jackpot games--asthe multi state games tend to develop higher jackpots. Less of thismoney stays within the state to support the programs funded by statelotterie"
Auntie, your just Wrong on so many levels
will all due repect, 50% of pb and mm money GOES right to the state
quote form powerball game:
Someone buys a ticket for $1. We take that $1 and set aside 50 cents for the lottery (money for the state lottery's costs - retailers,advertising, computer system, etc.) and for the lottery's good causes that the state lawmakers have established.
The remaining 50 cents is put into the prize pools. Powerball puts 30 cents into the CASH jackpot pool and 20 cents into the other lowerprize level pools. So, if we sold one ticket, we announce to the world that the CASH jackpot is at 30 cents.
must states DO THE SAME for their own state ONLY games,
they take 50% right off the top of the game, a few cents goes to retailers/costs
, the rest goes right into whatever the lotto funds are to support/whatever programs funded by your lotto
the other 50% goes into what we call"prize pools" that is the money that people win
YOU ARE NOT LOSING money for your state by playing MM/PB OVER a STATE LOTTO GAME
just playing your STATE only lotto game is the same money to them as you playing mm/pb
its all the same to them in porfits!
pb and mm is just a A other "profitable" game to sell,
the turth is, each state keeps the profits they make off of the tickets they sell in their state
they just "share the prize pool"
its thats simple,
people seem to get confused on the "share prize pool" thats the only MONEY that goes out of your state
they dont share profits, all profits stay in your STATE, for the tickets they sell
take your state lotto game, and pretend
the other states Clone it, and all we do is "share the money that goes into 1 BIG muti state "prize pool" to boost sales for your state, sense BIGER jackpots make the must sales happen
pb and MM are in FACT THE MUST PROFITABLE games for your states
sense when the jackpots go high, NONETHING sells as more or makes the more profits for ALL the states
like these games do for your state
so for god sakes people, stop bashing mm or pb being bad for your state only game
, its the best thing your state lotto has going for it
so next time that idea of dont play the big muti state games, it takes away money form your state pops, up
CRUSH IT, its a lie, a misunderstanding of lotto profits
they made these muti state games to be the flag ship profit game for all the states
thats why a lot of people in the lotto business created these muti state games,
they know "muti state games that share"the same prize pool" makes for the best sales for them selfs"
trust me, if these muti state games hurt the lotto funding for your state, they would of never BE MADE, or joined
now for the few that only want people in your state to win jackpots
, have fun with small jackpots and low profits for your lotto!
the muti state lotto games pb and mm should be repected as the Kings of profits for your own state!
