Not sure what to think about this, maybe it's a test to see how people respond.  Why else

would they name it after these games?  One of the prizes is a free ticket for the actual draw.

they are not.  Many great discoveries come while searching for something else

    Wow thats interesting but if I pay $5.00 I'd want to win more than a $1 quick pick

        They are singing my tune. I find it amazing that people cry and whine over my suggestions of a $4. MM ticket while all the states offer scratchers at $5. $10 and $20. per tickets. If there wasn't a market for such a price point the states would not be printing them. Count my in on the $5. tickets.   Yes Nod   LOL

            Lots of states have had games like this.

              Well, that would make it less odd.

              What states?

                Illinois, for one.

                They used to have $5 MM and PB scratchers but withouf the free QP. Now the tickets are back with the free QP gimmick.

                It's no mystery that these different state lottery directors talk to each other.

                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.

                        It's worth a try.

                        Remember to flip 6's 9's, mirror front and end #'s, and do front/back3 for a hit!

                          My personal thoughts are that the big number games as we know them won't be around much longer,

                          maybe a few more years.  Once the JP's reach a certain level games can be exploited by anyone with a

                          large bankroll.   Scratchers are also the major money makers here in MO and I suspect that's true anywhere

                          they are offered.  MO 5-39 only accounts for around 2% of ticket sales.  If the lottery could package a scratchers

                          ticket that added several more ways to win plus a chance at the JP then these tickets might become very popular.
