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.

I'm not hating on winners, I'd just like to see a game that's more competitive.  People win Powerball and Mega Millions so often that it's really not a big deal anymore.  Also it would be fun to play for bigger prizes.  Imagine if the game I proposed hit the jackpot cap at $1 billion dollars.  I guarantee you convenience stores around the country would have lines several blocks long to buy tickets.  People in states that play the lottery very heavily like New England would be bringing duffle bags full of $100 bills to buy tickets with.  In fact you'd probably have to limit ticket sales to 1,000 tickets per player.

    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?

    Why don't you go try your luck at KENO?

    I play 'penny' Keno games where a pick-8 pays $1,000, it's nice because you can play 100 games for $1.00, and you can leave and have your ticket checked within a year.

    So far, I have played maybe 50 times, and I've won twice.

    Anyway, no, a 15 number + PB game is a nice thought but dumb idea, because after nobody has won it for two years and the jackpot is two Billion dollars, folks will be sceaming it's fixed, just as they are now with RB 28 never hitting. Nice try though.

    I still think anytime a jackpot gets over 200 million dollars they should draw TWO sets of numbers, have TWO winning tickets, spread the wealth.

      We're just lucky they don't make us pick the numbers in the order they were drawn in order to win the jackpot.  Imagine putting that twist to the current game!

        They would be lucky to sell any tickets if they did that, players have to believe there's a chance someone will win even if it isn't them before they will play.

          Good thing Powerball increased the price to $2 in 2012. The odds are not that easy.

            Is this a sarcastic post? I think I'll be playing Powerball much less now that they doubled the price. I used to play when the annuity got around 60-70 million, but now I'll probably wait until it's well over the 100 million mark.

            While the value of a dollar is substantial, hope is priceless. But if you ain't got a dollar, then it's hopeless.

              I wonder how many times have people, after getting their change at the corner grocery, just threw a dollar on the counter and said, "Give me a Quick Pick".

              I wonder how many people will do that when the price goes to $2?

                When matching 5+0 pays $1M, there will be plenty of players buying a $2 QP.  I wonder how many will pay extra for PowerPlay since it will only increase the payout for matching 5+0 to $2M.

                  Enough people will plunk down the additional $1 to make up for the people that won't plunk down the additional $1 and then some. It's a Win-Win situation for MUSL.

                    The 2nd dollar will cover the enhanced prizes and the 3rd dollar is most likely just gravy.
