Texas Lottery Commission is going to end up killing our 6 ball Lotto. Odds are about 1 in 25 million to match 6 out of 54 and the 2nd place prize is not even worth playing for. They've been asked by many players to go back to the original 50 ball matrix but they won't listen.
Next week they got this new Extra! feature being added onto the game. It works much like Powerplay or Megaplier except the bonus is not as nice. $10,000 for a $2 play if you match 5 of 6.
Aparrently, jackpot increases will only go up $250,000 from now on too.
I've had a regular set of numbers that I have been playing off and on for the past 18 years, but this new change to the game is a deal breaker. I get better odds playing for the 2nd place prizes on the two multi-state games anyway.
