wow..you need to move.

But one thing, WHO has .25 cent games? A state I mean.

Hi dr,

You can play Cash5 in Virginia for $1 or .50 cents or .25 cents.

Jackpots are $100,000, $50,000 and $25,000 respectively.

You do have to spend a minimum of a dollar though with .25 cent and .50 cent games.

    I honestly wish they had a .10cent lotto, even if minimum purchase was like 10 tickets.

     

    It'd be great for wheeling.

      WOW! I didn't know that!...Ah but they structure the payout, I don't know if I'd go for that.

      So, if you have to spend the minimum of $1 for the .25/.50 then are you getting 4/2 games each with a chance to win $25,000/$50,000?

      They sure did a favor for themselves on that minimum purchase requirement...I thought that only applied to crooked grocery store coupons -

      Spend $10, get bread for .19 or butter for .99..**minus the eggs, milk, cigarettes and lottery of course - but that's like the whole list of things

      you wanted to buy to make up the $10. No Nod

      I'm going to look into that states website for a winners list on that game...would be interesting to know which payout is being paid out more often.

      Thank you rdgrnr!!

        Yeah, and you can purchase in increments of .25 and .50 cents after the first dollar's worth.

          That'd be cool. Lotta coverage and a $10,000 jackpot.

            Yea, I'd prefer either just a 5/5 prize, or maybe also a 4/5 prize, as well.

            5/30 for .10 cents a piece, with a 10,000 dollar prize for matching all 5.

             

            Actually I wish I was in charge of a Lottery Commision lol.  I got some ideas.

              I'll bet they got the minimum purchase requirement from casino Keno games. Way tickets are similar to lottery wheels; a 14 number pick-5 abbreviated 3 if 4 wheel has 19 ways. Players can play for 50 cents a way by playing 10 or more ways on one game. By putting 8 numbers into four 2-spots (4 ways), six 4-spots, four 6-spots, and one 8-spot, the player has 15 ways and can play that ticket for 50 cents a way. By playing 21 or more ways they get can play for 25 cents a way.

              There is 180 way ticket that uses two groups of 4 numbers (rows or columns) to make 180 8-spots and that can be played for 10 cents a way. The Orleans has a game where you can play the 180 way ticket for a penny a way, but there is a three game minimum.

              Some state lotteries have 25 cent pull tabs too.

                Actually I wish I was in charge of a Lottery Commision lol.  I got some ideas.

                Games like Kentucky Cash Ball with fixed payoffs could easily sell 10 cent tickets with a minimum $1 bet. For a $1 you get 10 chances to win $20,000 compared to 1 chance to $200,000. It would be more difficult with jackpot games like PB and MM. It might be interesting when "10% of the jackpot was won" and the other 90% is applied to the next drawing.

                "Actually I wish I was in charge of a Lottery Commision lol.  I got some ideas."

                The problem with presenting new types of games and bets are the agents and their clerks. I still get that "deer in the headlights" look by simply asking for one pick-3 or pick-4 number multiple times. The Ohio lottery offers multiple times on the playslips, but most states only have a multiple drawing option. If you fill out a playslip you have to tell the clerk to run it multiple times.

                But after you get that job, how about designing pick-5 and lotto playslips with full and abbreviated wheel options. Check the amount of numbers, fill in the numbers, and check the type of wheel. Program the terminal to show the amount before the tickets are made. Feel free to put a limit on the number of tickets so not hold up the line and allow the clerks to get the money before hitting the "send" button.

                The Australian syndicate that bought out the Virginia Lotto probably offered that suggestion many years ago but without the number of tickets limit.

                  Pretty much what I was thinking.  I'd want "advanced play" forms, which would allow things like positional, or box wheels, that payout odds times wager.

                   

                  And yeah, a fixed payout 20,000 dollar lottery, for .10 cents a piece would be nice, especially in combination with advanced play like full and key wheels, and maybe abbreviated wheels, although that'd be a little tougher to do properly.
