Will you be throwing in the towel when MM makes its changes?

Personally: l will wait and see if some of those lower prizes end up in my lap. The odds are astronomical at present and its gonna get worse, but you never know when you gonna hit it. Now,had they raised the price to $2.00 a ticket, l would have taken a hiatus from the game for a while or more than a while.
How about you?

    Seriously they are raising the price to $2 per ticket like PB???? On top of increasing the odds!  That pretty much does it for me and our group.  We'll just be getting one or two lines at best.. if that now ... bummer!  Have pretty much given up on PB.

        Where did you get your information that MM tickets price will increase?  Your information isn't supported by any official notices from MM.  The only thing I've read is their matrix will change to 5/75+1/15 on the 22th.

          Once my MM season tickets expire in December 2013 I will give up on playing the game like I successfully did for Hot Lotto. I also won't play PB after this year ends. From the year 2014 on I want to focus on mid range games. The Cash 5s and 6/49 games.

          That money's gone fo ever

            I will still play the MM contest in LP and the one a day MM, but I will not be spending any actual money.

              LottoMomma: The price is staying at $1.

              RJOh: The poster said "had" the price increased, meaning "if it had". Since it is still $1, they will keep playing.

                  I'm not quitting I'll just play less often and at higher jackpot levels.  Not because I would not want the money but because the odds are such that if every person 18 or older bought a ticket only one person in the entire country would win (ponder them odds).

                      Hell no, I'm going to keep playing. Yes, 1 in 258.9 million is amazingly bad odds, but it's not like JPs and second prizes were falling into my lap weekly with 1 in 175.7 million odds. With the improvement in lower odds, I'll probably see more money back from the game than I have up to now. I put down my $2 for my 2 tickets a week and I get to dream a little, I've always known I was more likely to get struck by lightning than win a JP.

                        I rarely play at the current odds but am curious to see how things fare at the lower end of the prize spectrum.  I expect that I'll play a little once JP's get into the upper reaches.

                        I remain, patiently optimistic

                          I will play my usual amount when the jackpot reaches around $50 to $60 million and then chase until it is won.  Granted I am not breaking the bank here with my ticket purchases because I buy one ticket only.  So just a couple of dollars every drawing to see if my lotto lightning can strike me with a jackpot.-weshar75

                              I'll probably still throw a buck at it. You gotta be in it to win it. The odds are so high already it doesn't make that much difference.
