Since MM is now a 5/75 - 1/15 game, what do you think the next change will be after this one.

I'm thinking something like this:

Dateline ?,

The MUSL announced today that there will be another change to Mega Millions. There will be a ball that could be drawn with 0 (zero) on it, but there will be no zero on the playslips or on quick picks. So in essence you have a matrix of 75 ro select from but there will be 76 balls to draw from.

The MUSL thanks you for playing and Have A Lucky Day.

What do you see coming for the next inevitable change?

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.

Next they will be introducing a \$5 multi-state jackpot game.

If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

Effective immediately all Mega Millions lottery terminals will no longer be accepting betslips. Only quickpicks will be allowed by our very own little controlled  Random (?) Number Generator.

Sometimes it's extremely difficult if not practically impossible to get people to disregard the smoke and mirrors.  Instead, they seem to enjoy the ride down the proverbial Garden Path....... helpless to extricate themselves from being totally deceived by known forces in their midst who would argue that they have come here for the sole purpose of helping people.......str8ca\$hhomie

A secret word will be added, guess the word and win double.

You will have pick symbols also, like those on the keyboard used in passwords to make them harder to hack

!@#\$%^&*<>?

Go ahead and figure the odds on those !

Once the changes start the official theme for MM will be Your Wildest Dreams by the Moody Blues.

Yo, CT,

Had to go to youtube to hear it, was'nt sure of the tune you were talking about,

never knew that was by the Moodys

Did you notice the new slogan ?

"All you need is luck and a buck"

sounds like they're trying to emphasize the fact that they did'nt raise the price.

Press Release: Effective immediately

In order to meet the demands of our wonderful players for even bigger jackpots, players will now be able to choose numbers from 1-999 for each of the five MM balls! The bonus ball will remain unchanged with choices from 1-15.

Now let's all aim for that \$ 1 trillion jackpot!

Some great suggestions here, especially the secret word & symbols.

I'll add decimals and fractions which, of course, also have no way to be entered on a playslip because it would look like Jack Kerouac's roll of paper for his "On The Road" manuscript.

Today's winning numbers:

3.14 - 11 - 27 3/8 - 57 - 963

Mega Ball - %

Secret Word - pie

No winners this week, but please play again!

Good stuff everyone, hilarious.

haymaker,

On the back of the Illinois Mega Millions playslips the very last two words are Anything's Possible!

They've used that slogan for awhile but it hasn't ben on playslips until the new MM slips.

PS,

On youtube's VEVO version of the song there's a video that's pretty interesting, tells quite a story in a few minutes, and the chick in it is gorgeous.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

Numbers will no longer be printed on tickets.  A special code will be printed and you must call a 1-900 number to enter your code to retrieve your numbers.  Just \$1.99 per minute.
