When I saw the title of this thread I thought it was going to be about Mega Millions not getting hit and not progressing a dime. I thought that was the glitch.

Silly me.

I still haven't heard what the "glitch" was supposed to be about either CoinToss...Unhappy

    You have to play your birthday numbers when they come up, have you checked all the previous drawings to see if you missed your chance?

    Yes I checked them, and thats why I can claim that I have played them for all these years.........

      Lottery Officials were in a panic minutes after last night's drawing once they saw the type of numbers that came. Typically referred to among lottery players as "birthday" numbers, it was all but certain that someone had won the jackpot, if not, the game would be paying out a lot in million dollar prizes.

       

      Someone did win.

       

      This is the 3rd time in the month of December where jackpots were won at the 50 million dollar level and this comes again at a lost to the lottery.

       

      Pulling out all the stops, officials are now certain that they have identified the "glitch" - lol!

      Yeah.... Who starts a thread that identifies a glitch without identifying a glitch......What?

          Only allow players to buy QP tickets, that would be plan B to foil them.

          That would made PB more like a raffle and players don't buy their tickets as much as lotteries.

          Years ago some people in Ohio got upset about people winning too much and the lottery commission stupidly limited the amount one ticket could win to $20M and many players stop playing.

          At the time Ohio had the Super Lotto with jackpots that regular reached $50M+ almost every month before being won.  Surrounding states didn't have PB or MM so a lot of players from out of state played the game too. Ohio later dropped that rule but by then neighboring states had added PB and MM and Ohioans started going out of state to play those games.  Ohio eventually had to add MM to even get Ohioans to start playing local again.

          Lotteries just have to accept their market do have limits and jackpot sizes can't expand it.

              If there is a glitch, it's in the structure of the game with starting jackpot and minimum rollover.  As long they continue to have $50M wins and pay up with $60-$80 in sales, we have to assume there is no glitch.

                The glitch question is about why MM is sand bagging and only starting at $12 million and now refuses to grant an increase in the face of fierce opposition from the lottery playing community at large.......

                  The lottery playing community have two choices, play or don't and that's not much a fierce opposition.  Wishing for starting jackpots that aren't supported by ticket sales is nonsense.  If players want larger starting jackpots they are going to have to pay more for a ticket.

                    I would rather buy more tickets than pay more per ticket. I will buy more if everyone else buys more.What?

                        "I will buy more if everyone else buys more.What?"

                        How would you make sure everyone else were buying more tickets?  By having a minimum sales amounts?  Which I imagine will happen if states ever start selling lottery tickets over the Internet because the expense will not justify accepting sales of a single ticket unless extra fees are charged.

                          If I understand correctly, lottery folks get about 50 per cent of sales.
                          They can't lose, no matter what the winning combination is.
                          Sure, they would love more $300 million jackpots, but I doubt they are concerned about
                          so-called 'birthday' numbers.

                            That has been the general idea that has guided most lotteries up to now but from the information I've seen about PB sales and reported payouts, that may not be possible when its jackpots don't exceed $90M with its fixed starting jackpot and rollover amounts.

                              It might be better to do two 50 dollar wheels, with some overlapping numbers.
