Just wondering if anyone here plays the Wild Card 2 game.  It's in only 4 states so it's no wonder I haven't seen it mentioned here, but then, I'm not checking here every day.  So, just wondering.  It's my favorite Pick 5 game, and I'm hoping to hit it one of these days.

      Thanks, dallascowboyfan!  I have been close many times; a few times just a hair away. 

      Honestly, I have no high hopes of ever winning a multimillion-dollar jackpot... but a game with numbers under 40, yes, I think it could happen.  What makes Wild Card more fun is the fact that it's 2 plays for a dollar.  Smile

        Well GGS, I emailed the OLC below is their response....... would have been nice if OK could have added this game especially seeing that we don't have a State lotto game....

         

        Thanks for your note.  We have actually looked at joining this game on a couple occasions but had to focus on some other larger opportunities (addition of MegaMillions & $2 Powerball).  We had even discussed a game enhancement for it but things just didn't materialize.  We continue to look at new ideas for our players so we appreciate the feedback.  Good luck! -----Original Message----- From: contact Sent: Saturday, March 31, 2012 11:21 AM To: OLC Info Subject: General

          So they're just not going to add it, probably wanting games that will bring more revenue??

            That's what I was thinking GiGi, what get's me is the part "We had even discussed a game enhancement for it but things just didn't materialize" it looks like they were trying to enhance Wild Card 2. They probaly settle for the Hot Lotto in it's place we still need to add this game though....

            Oh well maybe we will get a state lotto game soon...Wink

                  About a year ago I was getting kind of aggravated with our daily game called "Double Play".  That game was a lot of work (for anyone who might analyze/ study) and it seemed that no one was winning on Draw 1 top prize... Six months went by, no winner!  I had to wonder if participation had dropped off dramatically...

                  At the same time, I was highly enamored with a Washington State daily game called "Match 4".  It's a Pick 4 in number range 1-24 --- top prize $10,000.  It wasn't very often that I was able to travel into Wash. state to play that game and I soooo wanted it for Idaho...

                  So!  I wrote to the Idaho Lottery Commission and asked if they would consider adopting a game like Match 4, as an easier kind of game with a lower number range might be welcome.  I suggested that they drop Double Play Daily, as there had been no winner in 6 months.

                  I never got a reply to that letter (didn't really expect it) but within 6 months the Lottery Commission dumped Double Play Daily and brought in a new game.  The new one was nothing as fun as Washington's Match 4 but I had to wonder if there were other people complaining as I had. 

                  So anyway, I'm all for writing letters.  :)
