Still have the drawings Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday's, but with some improved enhancements:

1. Daily $1 million giveaways from entered losing tickets.

2. Triple all the lower tier prizes. (Example a 3+0 ticket is now worth $21).


3. Increase the minimum jackpot to $50 million.


4. Tickets prices to be set at $2. (No increases for 10 years guaranteed).


No more bailing ship from one game to the next, because of fluctuations in the jackpot, less tickets to fill out, and more attractive prizes.

    There is going to be a national game, but from what I read it's not going to be like PB or MM. No details were given. Just have to wait and see.

    CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

    A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)

            Actually I wrote up a bit about it back in April:  http://www.lotterypost.com/news/245446

              1. PB and MM main objective is making money for the states not rewarding losers.

              2. Paying more for lower tier prizes would reduce the jackpot amounts or the states share of sales.

              3. Make up your mind, you want larger lower tier prizes or larger jackpots, you can't have both.

              4. Why should they guarantee anything for 10 years?  If you don't like the price, don't play.

              Don't like filling out play slips?  Buy quick picks or reuse old play slips.

                  All good points RJ. Speaking for myself, I would still like to see a national game that is run more efficiently, and with less overhead.

                  With the bureaucratic waste eliminated, I see no reason why we cannot have increased lower tier prizes with the same jackpots.

                  Where is it written that the states have a guaranteed monopoly on these games?

                  Change is good, if we don't like the price we don't play, if we don't like the games we don't play.

                  When it comes to their bottom line, the states will get the message loud and clear.

                        Some where in most state laws because anyone starting their own game is usually arrested, taken to jail and the courts sentence them to some prison time for illegal activities..

                              If you revisit the article Todd wrote back in April, there is cost saving concept called the "National Premium Game".

                              This addresses the waste and duplicate redundant spending by the states, for the PB and MM games.
