It's been WAY too easy for people to win Powerball and Mega Millions.  I know most of you don't think so, but if you asked any winner I'm sure they'd tell you it was too easy.

I would propose a game where you pick 15 numbers + 1 bonus ball.  You'd need huge ball hoppers to hold all the #'s, but I'd propose regular #'s for this game go from 1-9,999.  Bonus ball #'s would go from 1-4,999.

I'd like to see people try and win this one every single drawing. lol

What would be the odds of winning the jackpot I wonder?

    Yes I agree, it's been way too easy winning all my jackpots.

    There's just no challenge in beating 195 Million to one odds.

    I'm almost embarrassed picking up all my checks.

    I think it should be at least 867 Septillion to one odds.

    That would make it a little more interesting.

        You're confusing losing with winning, if it's so easy to win why haven't you won?  Just because buying a ticket isn't harder for a winner than it is for a loser doesn't mean winning is as easy as losing.

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

            The odds would be worse than astronomical. There would be no point in playing. If PB & MM are so easy, why aren't there multiple winners every drawing?

                  Evidently, JJ, you did count all the Winners but you FORGOT  to count all the LOSERS!!

                  That is, you left out the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of millions of people who own all the LOSING TICKETS!!

                  What's up with that, JJ?

                        what your really asking for is higher jackpots

                        and powerball going to give you that, by upping the amount to 2 bucks per ticket,

                         

                        jackpots will be sure be won with more or same

                        but higher jackpots overall starting 2012

                        so claim down. and chill

                          jjtheprince,

                          What are you smoking?

                          No one has ever hit a 15 spot Keno ticket, and that's 15 drawn of 80.

                          No one who knows anything about lotto would play the game you propose.

                          Some of the lottey agents who monitor this board probably read your post and said, "Told ya."

                           

                          RJOh,

                          Thanks for doing the calculations and posting them.

                          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.

                            OK, to answer your questions, no I've never won a jackpot and I never will.  My best hope is for 4+1 or maybe 5+0 on PB or MM.  The jackpots are impossible for some (like me) to win, but too easy for others (who have won).  I really think people would win the jackpot of this game I proposed and it would probably be won at least 4 times a year.  Of course to entice people you'd have to start off with a BIG jackpot, like maybe start at $200,000,000 and cap it at $1,000,000,000.  I guarantee you'd have people lined up for blocks to buy tickets if the jackpot ever rached $1 billion no matter how long the odds are.

                              It's been WAY too easy for people to win Powerball and Mega Millions.  I know most of you don't think so, but if you asked any winner I'm sure they'd tell you it was too easy.

                              I would propose a game where you pick 15 numbers + 1 bonus ball.  You'd need huge ball hoppers to hold all the #'s, but I'd propose regular #'s for this game go from 1-9,999.  Bonus ball #'s would go from 1-4,999.

                              I'd like to see people try and win this one every single drawing. lol

                              What would be the odds of winning the jackpot I wonder?

                              dude dont be hating that others are winning and you arent .  if its so easy to win where is your winning ticket?  you probaly never even won  in a scratch off  ticker . hahahah talking about easy to win Cussing Face.
