I couldn't copy and paste the e-mail the way it came, here's the text typed out:
(The first part of this is specific to Missouri)
More millionaires for Missouri. The Match 5 prize increases 5X to $1million (Missouri will average 24 more millionaires a year). Match 5 with Powerplay - Prize doubles to $2 million.
Starting jackpot doubles to $40 million. The minimum roll doubles to $10 million. Average jackpots won will increase from $141 million to $255 million.
Overall- from 1:35 to 1:31.8
Jackpots - From 1:195 million to 1:175 million
$2 Powerball starts Jan 15 2012
I wonder if they will actually decrease the matrix. 1:175 million is Mega Million odds, so will PB became a 5/56 1/46 game?
If they know that about 24 more people in Missouri will hit 5 + 0 this definitely inplies they have it all down to a science.
I wonder if they're being a little too optimistic about people playing $2 and an extra $1 for the Powerplay, as it is rright now the average play is $1.
Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.
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.
