Pretend for a moment that the Powers-That-Be actually care about what you think.

What would you advise them to do concerning creating a new national game?

What should it be?

What should it cost?

How often should it be played?

Should the Jackpot be capped at some level and the extra money added to lower tier prizes?

Should the Jackpot never be capped?

Any other ideas or opinions?

    I think a bonus ball idea is good, maybe it would be orange or blue, you pick a color and pay an extra dollar and you win 10 grand is your bonus ball color is drawn, I would play this with mega-millions or power-ball.

    maybe they could have 8 colors to choose from, but you'd have to play the extra dollar.

      I could have worded that better.

      By bonus ball I meant the same thing as the PB 5+1 or the MM 5+1.

      But the different colored bonus balls is a great idea too now that you mention it.

        I think a new game, in addition to MM and PB, is in the works.
        It's going to be a Pick 7 of ??, and a bonus ball.
        It will cost minimum of $2 for one play.

          Pick 7 plus a bonus ball and 2 bucks?

          Wow, they must want to make somebody a multi-billionaire.

          I think I'd take a pass on that one and stick with PB and MM. They're impossible enough for me.

            I've read that the MSLU or a collectiion of States or some entity is working on another nearly national game, that they are trying to get the JAckpots up to half a billion with, but that the tickets, as currently planned, would cost $5 bucks.  I also saw 2 bucks thrown around.  Not too sure, actually I'm gonna look it up now.

             

             

            Honestly, I want one that won't grow so huge, but into a few million, or up to say 50 million.

             

            So something like a 5/30 and 2/26 for total odds of 1 in 46,314,450.  I'd actually really like a game like that, depending on it's prizes.  But I can imagine matching the first 5 would only get you like 5,000 or 10,000 dollars, compared to 200,000 and 250,000.  And I also can't imagine them starting the game with a Jackpot higher than 4 or 5 million, if that.

                  Canada has a Pick 7/49 game with a bonus ball. It's called Lotto Max.

                  The jackpot is set at $50 million. Everything after that goes to individual million dollar prizes.
                  Cost is $5 for 3 sets. Chances for the added million dollar prizes are FREE.

                  One problem is that the jackpot seldom reaches $50 million.
                  I have relatives in Canada and they tell me Max is the hottest game ever.
                  Folks are paying without complaint.

                  Also, the basic lotto Pick6/49 game tickets doubled in price to $2 a few years ago.
                  Some rumbling, but lotto sales went through the roof after the lower
                  tier prizes were raised.

                  I think most lotto players realize that the cost of playing will eventually go up.

                      if the got rid of both the pb and mm, they would lose half their turnover!i cant see them both being replaced, they have to come up with something super special to replace both. if they replaced one,  with a new bigger jackpot game then sales would drop on the old tired game and go up on the new game.

                      thats how i see it.  prob just more matrix changes , maybe more combo states.

                      2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

                      keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

                        I think a new game would be alright so long as it's not just another 5+1 game like PB and MM. A $2 price would be good, but instead of 2 draws a week, there would be 3: Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. Maybe something like a Pick 6/46 + 1/29.

                          I like that aspect of everything over 50 million going to individual 1 million dollar prizes, bobby.

                          I wonder if people in the US would go for that.

                              I think a new game would be alright so long as it's not just another 5+1 game like PB and MM. A $2 price would be good, but instead of 2 draws a week, there would be 3: Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. Maybe something like a Pick 6/46 + 1/29.

                              Sounds good Guru but I'd like it on Mondays and Thursdays if PB and MM were still playing. Maybe even Sunday.
