It would be fun if an uberball lottery was created.

Sooooo....

How many MM and PB jackpots have you won? And I don't mean second prize, I mean the big jackpot.

Haha...zero

Really, I wouldn't have to win it all, if I could get a 5 numbers on PB or MM like my dad did, that would be awesome.

Look at how many people either win that or the whole jackpot & tell me it's not easy (for them at least).

    You seem to have forgotten that while governments run lotteries, the prizes are paid from the cost to play, if it only cost a penny to play then the prizes will be only worth pennies.  Players don't play in real lotteries for bragging rights.

    yeh but id still make it min entry of $1, so $1 would buy 100 lines. sure the jackpot goes up by 100th of normal, but then odds are like 1 million times harder. Post Reply

      I'm not sure what a playslip with 5 boards cost but I'm sure it's more than 1¢.  Retailers now get 5% or 5¢ to print and check a line on a ticket so that 25¢ per $5 ticket.  How many retailers do you think would continue selling lottery tickets if all they made was 5¢ for printing and checking 100 lines after getting $5 for that work now?

      The only place you can play for free and get your numbers checked is the LP prediction board, and we all know what you win when you match all the winning numbers there.

       * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *
