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

o ok is 10 the max for all states? maybe someplaces  do more. i know here when i used to enter 10 weeks ahead if there was a problem it usually meant one of my  games was going to go thru changes.

2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

    Multi-draws can be purchased by anyone (of legal age) at the retailer terminal in the lottery jurisdiction and can be carried out of the jurisdiction (unless there is a law in your jurisdiction against possessing a lottery ticket). The number of multi-draws varies by state. Here is the most recent list that we have (note that one week is two draws). These can also change from time to time. Arizona-5 weeks; Arkansas – 10 weeks; California-10 weeks; Colorado-13 weeks; Connecticut-13 weeks; DC-10 weeks; Delaware-5 weeks; Florida-26 weeks; Georgia-13 weeks; Illinois-7 1/2 weeks; Iowa-5 weeks; Idaho-5 weeks; Indiana-5 weeks; Kansas-7 1/2 weeks; Kentucky-8 weeks; Louisiana-10 weeks; Maine-10 weeks; Massachusetts-7 1/2 weeks; Maryland-7 1/2 weeks; Michigan-30 weeks; Minnesota-14 weeks; Missouri-7 1/2 weeks; Montana-12 weeks; Nebraska-12 weeks; New Hampshire-10 weeks; New Jersey-4 weeks; New Mexico-5 weeks; New York-13 weeks; North Carolina-13 weeks; North Dakota-4 1/2 weeks; Ohio-5 weeks; Oklahoma-5 weeks; Oregon-13 weeks; Pennsylvania-13 weeks; Rhode Island-13 weeks; South Carolina-10 weeks; South Dakota-4 1/2 weeks; Tennessee-5 weeks; Texas-5 weeks; Virgin Islands-5 weeks; Virginia-13 weeks; Vermont-10 weeks; Washington-5 weeks; Wisconsin-4 weeks; West Virginia-12 weeks.

      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

      I got a clarification

      The changes will impact overall odds.

         Is that slightly better

                  or

        A whole lot worse?

            The odds are it'll be worse.

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

              I realize that everyone has their own strategy and reasons for how they play ... great ... to each their own.

              But ... I can't understand why, considering that PB and MM is about the same odds for winning, someone would spend $2 on one play of PB instead of the same $2 on two plays of MM.

                Guess it depends on the jackpot.

                yes if MM an PB were neck to neck....I'd play MM...well...I'd still have a few lines in PB.

                Now if PB was 300Million or that there 588million an mega millions was less perhaps even 200million or less I'd play more lines for PB, again, ofcourse still have a few lines for MM

                 

                I'm sure this is how most people see/do it.
