Why have a free raffle for a $5M dollar prize when they could easily sell the chance for a $1?  No body ever made money by giving it away.

They are already charging the dollar and NOT giving the prize.

    If I had a second chance to win, it would be worth a second dollar.

    Most players would see it as a second chance to lose and complain about it costing an extra dollar.

        Right, why start giving a prize if players are happy to pay the extra dollar for nothing?

          Not really, I had a nice run at buying them for a few weeks but now I'm happy to be without them unless they makes some significant changes.

          Anytime someone doubles the price of the product they need to double the value and PB is actually worth less now not more.

            But players are not happy no matter how they try to hide it.

              Actually, it's the second prize winners who are collecting for all the loser who spent the extra dollars.

                I dont think so..... 5 of 5 is the first prize and the jackpot is a bonus prize.

                      If they aren't sad enough to not buy a ticket then it's the same as being happy.

                            I plan on buying 10 lines of PB tomorrow and I'm getting my money worth by taking twice as long to pick my numbers.  I may spend three times my normal time and make it a real bargin. Wink
