      All the retailer could tell me is they impact all the prizes and how fast the Jackpot increases.  I talk to my retailer and they tell me news...including if one of the ticket packs seems to be a hot one.  They can usually tell me if something is coming up.

      They said since Michigan has 60 Multidraws they will have to decrease them on the Mega and then after Oct 20th it will go back up to 60

            Please tell me that this is just a rumor Unhappy

            I would rather spend $1 for a 7 million dollars jackpot than $2 for a 40 million dollars jackpot. PB business model is a bad idea. MM should never copy their model.

                Drawings Held: Tue & Fri around 11 p.m.
                Cost: $1 Mega Millions, $1 extra for Megaplier
                Starting Jackpot: $12 Million
                Sales Cut-off: 10:44 p.m.

                 

                it already is $2.00 if you get the  extra so then i guess it will be $3.00

                  Oops, I meant to say $1 for a 12 million dollars jackpot. Not 7 millions.

                      Why?  Well for one thing you just told me that there sections on web sites that might have the info...I will have to look for those.  And B. I am NOT an expert at getting info off the net and there might be someone on here who is better at rooting around and finding the info.

                      It is funny how some people on this thread have started to fill in info that we don't have...like assuming things we don't know just from having the info in my question...speculation is not what I want...I was hoping someone could find the facts.

                        Wow, I just checked out the Ohio lottery retailer section.

                        Now, not only does Ohio have to tell PA how to run a turnpike they also have to tell Michigan how to run a Lottery website.

                        Here is the Michigan retailer section -  http://www.michigan.gov/lottery/0,4603,7-110-42426---,00.html

                        No comparison

                          Perhaps MI is broke and doesn't have money for a functional web site?

                            try pre purchase of tickets, if they have  any changes planed they wont let you buy past the change date.

                            2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

                            keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

                              Good idea, but they only sell up to 10 draws ahead.
