        We will push for a $100M starting jackpot by denying our money to powerball until the jackpots get over $100M. I am talking about high jackpots players.We forced a matrix change from $20M to $40M.

        $40M to $100M is coming soon.lol, lol

        Pushing....LOL talk about addiction....

          Gambling addicts like b2b get a heightened sense of elation at the mere mention of "gambling addiction"

            Charge more for QPs?

            What's next, selling the playslips?

            Renting the pencils?

            The terminal isn't 'doing any extra work' with a QP.

            Here's a better idea, charge players who tell clerks thir numbers instead of filling out a slip.

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

            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.

                $5 scratch off drawings coming soon with a national lottery game. Powerball is a scratch off game with the exception that it is drawn Wednesdays and Saturdays.

                  They're winning more, so, charge 'em more.

                  or are they?

                  or so it seems?

                  hmm.

                    Self service terminals or on-line playing would eliminate the problem completely. Wink

                      What is the quick pics were numbers that had won before??? 

                      How would you feel if you got a quick pic that read...55---56---57----58----59??

                      Or a quick pic that read 1---2---3---4----5-????

                      So yeah, I guess they do have the same chances, but I like having control over my numbers...I do admit sometimes playing quick picks but not something I ususally do unless spur of the moment....

                        I'd like to see 'em tax the sales of lottery tickets at the front end and leave the winnings alone like Australia does.

                              I Agree! Somebody needs to pay an extra charge and I think QP players should be at the top of the list.
