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....

Good idea, Coin Toss.

And it would draw in more people who might not bet otherwise or if the pot wasn't to a certain level.

    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.

    ya you are right about that with all the new 3 liner games and multiple games on 1 ticket poping up everyehere for 5 bucks a piece....If tickets were under a dollar they might be ascared they would lose money but it would probly even out.

      If this was a truly national thing (Nevada, Hawaii, Utah, etc...included) another prop bet could be betting on what state would win it - in accordance with population. In other words, North Dakota winning, for example, would pay more than a win in NY or Calif.

      Just stuf to make it interesting and the player get an occassional bone.

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      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.

        To me, it doesn't matter whether it's a 5 +1 or a 6 # game, what I'd like to see is a game that had smaller jackpots, but many millionaires. 

        Such as, instead of having one person win a huge $300 million dollar prize, I'd like to see it where the spoils were divided into many more smaller prizes, such as one 10 million dollar winners, 3 or 4 $5 million dollar winners, numerous $2 and 3 million dollar winners, and many many more prizes in the 10's and 100's of thousands of dollars. Something along those lines.

        Unfortunately, I don't think that would work because it appears that people are attracted by the chance of never winning $300 million dollars than they are a stronger possibility of winning 1 or 2 million.

        Give someone a fish and feed them for a day. Teach them to use the internet and they won't bother you for weeks.

            I'm with you on "spreading the wealth around" (I hate that phrase) Ameriken but I think we're in a very small minority.

            I don't know about you but I been whistlin' past the graveyard lately.

            It's almost time for my dirt nap and I'd like to go on one last nationwide legendary drunken binge bender before I go.
