MM's odds are already in the  "almost impossible" range and now they're going into the  "might as well forget about it" range for me."

 

 Exactly.

 God, if good, would rather prefer humble and modest, not some greedy bling-flashers.

      Read the first post...this is about what YOU have suggested. 

      I am just telling you what I have suggested

       I think my suggestion might have been to take a roll of quarters and stick it where the sun dont shine.

      I dont think MUSL takes kindly to quarters.

        For players who simply pick the game with the best odds for its jackpot size, the change won't matter.

        This week-end Ohio's Classic Lotto has a jackpot of $36.2M with odds of 1:14M, MegaMillions has a jackpot of $15M and PowerBall a jackpot of $50M both with odds of 1:175M, for this type of player a dollar spent for a OCL ticket is clearly the better choice.

          Personally, I don't like to see the games get harder just for the excitement of a bigger jackpot. It just doesn't excite me like it does most people I guess. I ain't gonna live forever, I'd rather experience the excitement of winning a jackpot, any size jackpot, sometime before I breathe my last..

          Hell, I play Virginia's Win For Life game with odds of 1 in 5,245,786 and it seems like NOBODY ever wins the Jackpot EVER!  And it seems like very, very rarely does anybody even win the 2nd place prize of $52,000 with odds of 1 in 874,298.

          They pay out a few $600 third place prizes a week and that's about it. And the odds on this game are "easy" compared to MM.

          MM's odds are already in the "almost impossible" range and now they're going into the "might as well forget about it" range for me.

          I Agree! if Oklahoma had a state game I would be all over it.

                This is the kind of cry baby chatter I'm talking about. How can it be "greed" when MM is willing to risk a complete failure of the game to keep the price at a ridiculous measly $1. per line?

                Millions of $20. scratches are sold every day of the week around the country for a $1 million prize (or less) and it's clear that the $2. PB price has been fully accepted and they are the "Big Game" now. 

                We need a $4. game if we want to see billion $$$ jackpots. Its the only way.
