Of course. $2 is still affordable.

I always like to wait until the jackpot gets over 100+ million before I participate. Mean while I play other smaller games.

        I voted NO. I'm not playing that anymore. I didn't win the times that I did play..might have had a extra ball here and there but not worth the wait

        or the energy it takes to crumble that little slip of paper.

              Yeah, I'll pay the $2 but instead of 2 tickets it'll be 1.  A budget is a budget. If I have $10 a week to play lottery games, it stays $10 and does not increase because the cost of a game doubles. No biggie. Unless my employer decides to double my wages......

                  I really thought there would be a lot more no votes.

                  I thought there was a lot more opposition to the new $2 PB game than is being shown here.

                      Me too. That's a real crummy move, they aren't doing anyone any favors except themselves.

                      And then, if I have this new move right, the Power Play will be $2 making one pick $4...no way. I

                      really don't like the game now...odds out of this world...but did they think tinkering with the payouts

                      and increasing the price would make me like it more?

                      No thanks, I'd rather put that $4 str on 110...the odds are the same..lmao!..at this point, I waited so

                      long for 110, it almost feels like 1:195M.

                        i think you'll see more as ppl. consider the ?

                        it could be a breaking point for some .

                        i know some ppl. that play only pic 3 or 4 cause they just don't like the long odds on the big games .

                        that is to say, they gave up on the life changing JPs .

                        i don't play 3s&4s,cause i want a winner thats a lifestyle change .

                          ...but that increase would make you run right out and start playing now, wouldn't it?

                            dr65, no really i was thinking in terms of what i would do if it happens to MM,i think ridge said something like,if PB does it,then MM, will to, not a quote, the short version .

                            i play MM reg.

                            PB is rare .

                            sorry,i had to edit, why did you lose your lunch on this ?

                              Actually it's $3 with Powerplay or $2 without.

                              They made the 5+0 permanently a $1 million dollar winner now on a $2 ticket and it becomes a $2 million dollar winner with Powerplay for $3.
