If MM went from $1.00 to $2.00 would you cut back on your wager?

I was one of those people. I didn't even stay away for a friggin year!

I never vowed to stay away, but I did vow to cut way back and I've stuck with that.  I used to spend $10 or sometimes even $15 when the JPs got high.  The most I've spent on a draw after the change is $6.  And it takes a higher jackpot for me to spend even that much -- I usually spend just $2.

    lol - i concur.  I Agree!

    I sometimes see people dropping $60 on the $20 scratchoffs and can't help but wonder how they feel when they realize that they just lost good money.

    That money's gone fo ever

        This is why I wish Oklahoma had a State Lotto game. But yes I would play I usually play 2 lines on Mega with megaply so I would continue to play.

        I Love Pink & Green 1908

          I'd like to know why it's a given that an increase in price is automatically 100%?

          Why can't it be 10% or 25% if one is needed?

          Sure, it's easier dealing in whole dollars but we're quite capable of dealing in change too just like we do with everything else we buy.

          There is no need for the lotteries to double the price of a ticket.

          very good point ridge. thats how they do it here, somerimes its 20c a game sometimes 10c.

          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

            Given that PB did it without consulting the general public, but made the 2nd prize large enough to draw people in. If MM did the same, would you buy into it or feel you being jipped?

            I would probably exclusively play CA Super Lotto Plus and Fantasy 5.
