My only problem with this game was the crappy $500 payout for a 5 of 6 hit.
That, IMO, was the game's fatal flaw. The odds of winning a million bucks were fairly decent, but the lower-level prizes were pure crap. They should have been higher, and it would've been nice if there was a 2 of 6 prize, even if it was just a dollar or two or a free play. Had the other prizes been bigger, the player base might have been bigger as a result.
Down and Dirty shouldn't be annoyed with anyone. He has something in common with almost everyone that ever spent a buck on Sweet Million. He didn't win a million dollars!
Yes, it certainly was the games fatal flaw. The design of the game was flat out BAD. I dont think The NY Lottery had their thinking caps on when they were discussing the game prior to introducing tickets for sale. Surely they did not give the lottery playing public enough credit to see past the fact that SM's jackpot odds were so low. I hope they learned a lesson.
I've heard so many people say (especially those that play MM or PB) "I'm really playing to get five numbers to score a second place win." I'm sure that same thinking carries over to other games as well.
About playing the lottery -- You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot. Then everything changes!
