Again, no Lotto winner. What does it take to win this game?

Promo of $5-$2QPs won 2 2nd place. But again jackpot was increased by $700k.

PB is $130 lump sum, but since 1 ticket is $2, but you get 2 tickets for $1, Lotto is a better bet.

BTW, no need to buy all lines on 1 ticket and risk more taxes anymore.

    I was surprised that the $5/$2 QP promotion did not produce a jackpot winner.  It will be really interesting to see if this baby can get pumped up to $20 million; however, it will take another three weeks to get there, and that assumes the rollovers stay consistent at $700k.  We'll see if the ever-increasing jackpot can stimulate sales enough to keep funding those rollovers at their current level now that the promotion is over.

    (BTW, this month's promotion is for Powerball; buy $10, get $2 in QPs.)

      Better to play PB w/PP for $12+$2QP than single ticket of $10.In any case, I bet people are staying away from Lotto due to low prizes below jackpot. No one wants $100k if MM is $250k for same odds.However, if Lotto sticks to the stupid decision to add only $300k not $500k, then Lotto is dead in the water.

        It usually takes the correct numbers to win.Razz

        I have been playing the 29 as a power number.

        Got three 3/6 in the last month.  Which is quite an achievement considering the odds, however the three dollar prize is quite a quick in the nuts.

        And I am sticking with it.

        29 all the way.

        As a matter of fact I am thinking of a 4 power number wheel.  4 6 8 29
