So month of Jan they ran buy 5, get 3 free promotion. This should see higher sales. Those who would normally buy 1 or 2 tickets would be tempted to buy 5 in order to get 3 free tickets. This should push sales up. Recently there have been two JP winners for the same draw but for the entire month of Jan, there haven't been as many winners. Does that mean sales aren't up there even with the promotion?

    Just because there were no winners doesn't mean there is no sales.

      3/6 deserves a 5 USD payout, anything less is very underpaid.

      That is how they finance the promotions.

        $3 for odds of 1:32 is fair, considering Take5 payes a QP on 1:9.6, Lotto $1 on 1:48, and MM and PB are low payers as well.

        As for the free SM QPs, Lotto is up to $14.9m with $2QPs on $5, that happens rarely, so it's a better bet.

        Oh, and PB is now $150m, so no one wants a measely $1m.

          Agree with stupid

          $40 for odds of 1:2, betting $20 are real in casinos. Now you are saying that you find it fair to get a tenth of that? Are you nuts?

              They pretty much had this deal almost every other month in 2012.. I don't think people play sweet million that often... so that deal would make someone who would not normally buy it give it a try. When ever they have this deal I buy like 10 dollar worth and I get  6 free tickets..  Great deal.. but have not won yet lol.,.

              It Takes More Than a Dollar and a Dream :)

                pardon, I dont get the above statement.

                 

                I dont know about casino odds, which no casino ever states BTW.  I know stated odds on lotto forms.  SM has $3 for 1:32, yes, it even beats Take5 as you get QP not $. 

                 

                Take5 pays $ on 1:103, which does beat SM's odds of $40 1:456 and $500 is bad;however, MM and PB has worse odds than SM for $500 and $1m.

                BTW, NY Win4 has odds of 1:192k of winning $50k(s/b), which is 3x less than Take5.
