I'm wondering why the rollovers this week have been limited to $75,000?  In the past, a jackpot @ 500K that rolled over would be increased a MINIMUM of 150K.  After this many rollovers, today's jackpot SHOULD be in the 800K range. 

I've contacted them to see if this is a policy change or if sales are really that low.

Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

    Received a response that they would investigate my query and get back to me.  That was 4 days ago and I still have received no response.

    I didn't think it was that tough a question.

      March 4 update...

      It took over a fortnight, but they finally answered my email...sorta...

      Here is the exchange:

      Subject: Lucky Day Lotto rollovers

      Dear Sirs,
      I'm wondering why the Lucky Day Lotto jackpot rollovers have been limited to $75,000 the last few days. I've been playing the game since it began and when the jackpot gets this high it always rolls over at least $150,000. Is this a new policy or have sales been that low? Please advise.
       
      Thank You.
      Rick G.

        Gee, they didn't even mention the $75,000.

        When I called them and asked them how many Exta Shot balls there were for the Lotto drawing the first person I talked to said, "I don't know, let me ask around."

        And lotto is apparently locked on a $150,000 rollover.

        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.
