      Good for you!  I was just going to check the NY Lottery web-site for the Sweet Million numbers after I read the posts here, but now I don't have to because you posted the SM numbers and guess what?  I have three numbers on two lines on my QP, one win on the $5.00 ticket and one win on the freebie! 

      I'll take the small wins to defray the cost of playing a bit, my MM tickets will be free today!


       Again, no big SM winner.........

       

      I  played the Ct. Lucky for Life for the first time, for yesterday's draw,  I have to go and check the numbers, so wish me luck, you brought me good luck on my SM tickets, maybe you should post the numbers all the time! (lol)

        "Really crappy stores"?  Is that where all the luck is located???

        Wait til I tell the owner of that really crappy deli down the street why I think his store is so lucky!

                      Ya know, looking back at it, I think there was only one winner of a million dollars during the whole promo!

                      I'm tempted to play tonight, but I dunno...we'll see...

                      Something's not right with SM... if in fact there was only one winner in August, and they cant generate enough extra ticket sales to expand the prize pool by using a promotion so as to produce more winners, then I have to believe SM wont make it.

                        The Sweet Million promo has been extended throughout September, I'm glad they extended it, because I won something on the 3-free ticket 3 times during August, I won three bucks again on the freebie ticket on Monday night.  The only jackpot game I haven't won anything when playing is NY Lotto, I think I will stop playing that one, or just play it for $1.00 and continue to play SM, MM, and PB for 5 bucks each.

                        One player in Fl. won PB on Sat. night, 5 out of 5 for $200,000, if the winner did the Power Play, it was 4 times,  the winner would have won a million according to the payout table, but $200,000 times 4 is $800,000. Why is the prize one million, instead of $800,000?  I don't get it.....

                          Well, it's nice the SM promotion was extended, but once again, despite the promotion, there was no million dollar winner last Monday night.  The game is comming up on it's first anniversary, yet in nearly 104 drawings it has produced maybe a half dozen JP winners.  I think many would be players want to see it do better than that before they'll commit to playing it regularly.

                          It's not that I want to see the game go away. In my opinion what NY needs to do is enhance the lower tier prize payouts so as to attract more players.  That might increase the prize pool enough to see more jackpots be won. More JP's might mean even more players. 

                          It will be interesting to see how many jackpots are won in September now that the promotion has been extended.

                            My apologies to The State of New York Lottery....

                            There have been 9 Jackpot winners of SM since it began on 9/17/09.

                            And the buy 5 get 3 free promotion is working, because the number of prizes in each category ($500, $40, $3)in August was higher than in July.  For example in July there was a range of 1,026 to 1,495 $40 winners, where as in August the range was 1,400 to 1,772.

                            What's harder to see, is that 8 of those 9 JP's were won in the first six months of the games history. After March 18th, the number of Jackpots won fell off a cliff.  I think that's due to the game being new in Sept, Oct and Nov etc. After it's newness wore off, it seems to me that player interest in the game has declined.
