If PB officials reacted to a boycott from players and dropped it back to $1, how would this effect your playing routine?

(And kept the current prize structure).

 

Would you be buying twice the number of tickets now?

Would you be playing at lower jackpots than before?

Would you still not continue to play out of anger of the $1 increase?

Would you rather just go to bed now?

        I would definitely be playing twice my normal lines.

          The state doesn't know anything about the free enterprise system. All they need to do is pay a lot more for lower tier prizes and make every losing ticket good for a chance at the jackpot.

            People are 10 times more interested in having a chance at the jackpot then how big it is.

              Excellent suggestion. I have thousands of losing tickets that could now be worth something.

                  Either big games could get smart and raffle $5 million each draw to losing tickets and triple the sales.

                    Why haven't they considered such a move before.  What?

                            Is that a department store of some type.  What?

                              Some are called neighborhoods stores and some are called super stores.... Supply and demand my friend.

                              Supply and demand. If a small jackpot was in supply each draw, the demand would be off the charts....
