I voted for a new game to replace PB and MM.  I'd like to see this structure:

  $5 a pop

  Once per week

  Matrix & Payout structure to result in more multi-millionaires

When I proposed more winners in the past, I was reminded that if the pots were not big enough, interest would wane.  Probably true.  So, with the tons of money that the whole country would pour into one weekly $5 game, there should be plenty there to give away "Tens of Millions" to ten or more winners every week.  Who needs $200,000,000?  I can live happily ever after on $10m!  Smile

    I like that idea also Jimmy but I would still like to have PB and MM around too.

    I'm getting close to dirt nap time and I want more shots at jackpots.

      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 the main point I was trying to get across is extra prizes every now and then, keep people from getting discouraged so easy.

      Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

      For a lead role in a cage?

          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?

          "Powers that be care about what we think"??????

          Me thinks you are smoking something to go with the Jack. LOL.

          I think we will end up with MM and PB merging into one game with bigger jackpots, bigger odds, bigger cost to play. I don't know what I would prefer except  maybe go to a game without a bonus ball. Frankly, it probably doesn't matter what configuration the game is, the odds are such that it's near impossible to win anyway they make it.

            I like that idea sully. Although when I get discouraged I usually just increase my dosage of Jack.

            I also increase it when I'm encouraged though. Pretty much any emotion can result in increased dosage.

            Which is considered a good thing in my circles.

              I like that outside the box thinking, Jonny.

              Unfortunately, the feds like all thinking done inside the box.

              Preferably inside a very small box.

                I still think PB and MM will stay around in one form or another and somehow we will wind up with a major jackpot game of one name or another playing at least six nights a week.

                Which is how I would like it.

                    I just wouldn't want to see it in it's present form - a computer game.

                    That's just my personal preference though.

                    I prefer the real ball machine drawings.

                        Maybe they'd care more about what the players think and be more responsive if lottery directors were elected by the people instead of getting the job because they're a friend of the Governor or some other muckety mucks.

                        Sadly, they don't care what we say and they don't have to care what we say.

                        And they know it.

                          I think it would be great to have a lottery or powerball type game game with tickets as low as 10 cents...In Virginia you can get cash 5 tickets for 25 cents...then if 1 person wins the jacpot at 25 cents in a powerball type game the remaining 75 % will still be in pot for upcoming drawins

                            Since the odds of winning any jackpot are so high I'd like to see a game with a lot of "prop bets" (proposition bets), like Odds and Evens, color of the balls, etc.....

                            Wouldn't be any great payoffs but would make it all more interesting and fun to play.

                            A national lottery game would have sweet jackpots, sure, but in ant lottery game the most common result is you hit whatever doesn't pay, 0, 1, or 2 numbers on a Pick 6, 0 or 1 on a Pick 5, etc...

                            So prop bets could be (assuming six balls drawn):

                            1 odd 5 even

                            1 even 5 odd, etc....

                            or

                            All one color

                            One of each, etc....

                            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.

                              I think it would be great to have a lottery or powerball type game game with tickets as low as 10 cents...In Virginia you can get cash 5 tickets for 25 cents...then if 1 person wins the jacpot at 25 cents in a powerball type game the remaining 75 % will still be in pot for upcoming drawins

                              That would be interesting EightyOuts but I think the trend is turning to bigger instead of smaller.

                              I think in all likelihood, there is a Megalo-Leviathan-Behemoth coming down the pike.

                              Megalo-Millions. You heard it here first.

                              So let it be written.

                              So let it be done.
