What are your predictions for 2013?

(Not numbers, there's an entire section of the site for that)

Things like,

A national lottery?

$5 tickets?

Mega Millions goes to $2 tickets?

No more $1 scratchers?

I'm just listing a few things that have been mentioned in different threads.

What do you see for 2013?

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.

                  sully,

                  Illinois started another Pick 3 game a few months ago, My3. It's Pick 3 but the payouts are a little different.

                  My3 is drawn at 10:30 A.M. and 6:30P.M.

                  Pick 3 is drawn at 12:40 P.M. and 9:22 P.M., so in essence that's four Pick 3's a day.

                  Scared

                    Nationwide:

                    • Billion dollar jackpot
                    • More online play (not nationalized, but individual states implement it)

                    New York:

                    • Adds subscription option for Powerball (currently only offered for Lotto and Mega Millions)
                    • Eliminates Sweet Million
                    • Tweaks Lotto in attempt to address declining popularity

                    Pipe dream for NY:  Start a Win For Life draw game (ride on popularity of NY's WFL scratchers)

                        I predict someone will post their hot numbers for the year "good in all states" in this thread.

                        Seriously, I don't see any $1 billion jackpots under the current formats because we saw the effects on $400 million plus jackpots where probably all the possible combos were sold. Online lottery gambling will continue to grow and should get into casino type online gambling. New Jersey is currently looking into sports online gambling so those laws may be tested. It's possible one or two of non-lottery states will join in the fun too.

                        Kentucky has no problems with streaming the live ball drawings via the Internet so there should be no excuses for any of live ball drawing state who are thinking about using a RNG.

                          I would love for an online option in all states (who have Lottery). Have it to where I can play even in Japan. It would be where you'd have to prove your a citizen of whatever state an whatnot. An the Ticket prices would be the same...no extra cost or anything. An NO limit. we don't need laws on how much we can buy just because a few would spend there entire paycheck on tickets. If it was $580million an they had enough money saved to get through the month or week or two an wanted to spend that paycheck on the draw then Let 'em!

                          Also it would be surreal to see a Billion Dollar Jackpot, National(All States join in even the ones who have no Lottery)! I think the only way to achieve this is to just hype it up and announce there will be a $1billion JP. No PB or MM. It was just an end of year thing. I think the lotteries could save up to have this 1billion of for grabs if they don't already have the means now, I kinda think they do. They would announce it an advertise it early, atleast 6 months. Ofcourse you'd buy your tickets anytime up till then. Lets say the drawing was ball machine same as PB an MM. 5+1...perhaps the numbers go a little higher. We know big JP increase the sells. So with the many miillions buying tickets over that period I'm sure even if you have large amounts of wins along with a JP winner The Lotteries would still have a profit!

                          If they did this maybe there would not be any other prizes. You know to guarentee they have a profit. I would not care I think most would still play it! We'll say its $1 a line, but even at $2 all will play. Its either you hit the jackpot or nothing. Some of the money they profit they can put back into other Lotteries specificaly the MM an PB.

                          Really, does this sound farfetchted? I don't think so. It can be done

                            I predict that in 2013 Lotterypost will have more a$$holes saying they have a winning system and will share it for a price.

                            Play to win!

                              Either MM or PB (or both) will reach an Est Jackpot of $1 Billion + Group Hug
