      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.

                Well I mean...if it's a National Lottery it shouldn't have a Spanish name. My two cents.

                  All I know is this thing better have good rollovers...I mean something like this would have to increase by atleast $15million

                        mcginnin,

                        A national  lottery may have been the plan from the get go. Read on:

                        Lotto*America was the first lottery game offered by the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL). It was replaced in 1992 by Powerball, which remains MUSL's flagship game.

                        In 1987, six states and the District of Columbia banded together, since, on their own, they could not create jackpots into the tens of millions of dollars that had become commonplace in the most populous lottery states. MUSL's first game was called "Lotto*America" even though only those six states and Washington, D.C. took part, although technically it could be played on both the East Coast and West Coast.

                        L*A's first version was a pick-7-of-40 game, rather than the pick-6 games that had become wildly popular in U.S. lotteries. Matching four numbers won a fixed prize of $5; matching at least five won a parimutuel prize. Matching all seven won the jackpot, whose odds were roughly 1 in 18 million, at the time the toughest odds in the country. The top prize was a 20-year annuity; there was never a cash option, even though a few games did offer one when L*A ended.

                        During the middle of its four-year run, L*A became a more traditional pick-6-of-54 game; unlike the first version, players got two games for $1. The jackpot odds actually became more favorable at 1 in 13 million per dollar; however, overall odds were much tougher, since four numbers were still needed to win the lowest prize level. This version was entirely parimutuel.

                        In some of its jurisdictions, L*A was known by that lottery by a different, "more local" name. For instance, in Minnesota, L*A was called Lotto Minnesota.

                        Several states joined MUSL during the era of L*A. One of them, Maine, decided to leave MUSL when L*A ended; Maine did not rejoin MUSL until 2004.

                        MUSL's rapidly growing population base resulted in another change, in 1992, to the original version of Powerball, which had then-unheard of jackpot odds of 1 in 55 million. However, the unique structure of the new game allowed players to win by matching just one number.

                        Original jurisdictions (game began February 1988):

                        Joined in progress:

                        Except for Maine, the above lotteries were the original lineup for Powerball when it began in April 1992.

                        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                        Lep

                        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
