Lottery Post member Chops sent me some info and a link about a survey being conducted by the lotteries in New England.  It sounded like something many people here would want to participate in, so I'm posting it to the forums.

According to Chops:

New England member lotteries are considering joining forces to offer a regional game. The survey link pitches four different games: 

  • Lucky 4 Life, which appears to be an expanded version of Connecticut's game of the same name. Two variants are being considered, one with an $8,000/week for life top prize, and one that lowers the top prize to $5,000/week for life in exchange for offering a match 2+0 prize,
  • Red, White & Blue, in which players win by matching all of the numbers in one or more color-coded pools (3 red, 2 white, and 1 blue),
  • Winfall, aka (Massachusetts) Cash Winfall, and,
  • Decades of Dollars, which appears to be the same as the current Decades of Dollars offered in VA, KY, GA, and AR.

You can participate in the survey here: http://survey.ctlottery.org/surveylogin.asp?k=130687101469

Thanks to Chops for the info!

    Now that's how to do it.

    Ask the players what they want.

    Would never happen in TN.

          I don't see a bad idea in the bunch. But I should warn you all that I've seen lots of surveys like this in the past, and I can't remember even a single instance where the concepts in said surveys turned into actual games. Just chalk this up as very, very, very preliminary research, at best.

            Doesn't bother me if the 3-ball numbers games and 4-ball numbers games remain the way they are.

            Actually, I think it would be neat if Massachusetts and Rhode Island began a 3-ball numbers game.

            Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

            In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

              I took this survey. I said I liked Decades of Dollars the best. $250,000 for 30 years is great to me.
