Heres the deal with the game right now the new mega millions games is basiclly losing money.

The lottery headquarters knows it will make up for the loss when the jackpot gets higher.

So it will be stupid too play the mega millions now because hey are cheating players.

If the game just changed whats the chances of their being a huge jackpot too advertise the new changes.

The mega millions is cheating players right now too get a huge jackpot and they are losing money

me personally i dont think alot of people is playing it but they know they will make up for 'the loss when the jackpot gets huge.

The game is rigged at this point save ur money till it get higher but even then its will be mega rigged my opinion.

      I don't think that Sixteen is saying that the Mega Millions lottery is rigged per se although I, myself, have been at times and will continue to be a staunch conspiracy theorist that is until THEY prove themselves otherwise. I think he/she is saying that the rigging occured in the changeover 1-56 to 1-75.

      It occurred to me some time ago that the fair way to do things was to allow the numbers 1-56 to produce a Jackpot Winner specifically within that range and then make the changeover. Being a system's player I had my money invested in the lower range of numbers and not the higher range. THEY forced me,as well as others here to try to get a return on our investment by stupidly playing the higher range of numbers.

            Gary Grief had nothing to do with the change in MM. That was decided way before he was elected to head NASPL. By the way, he is Executive Director of the Texas Lottery, not MM Lottery.

            They can't just switch to the new matrix at a moments notice. It takes time to change the computers, terminals at the retail level, and the playslips. Plus the individual states have to go through the process of approving the changes in their rules.

            Sit down, and think about it for a while, instead of crying "rig" because you don't like the changes. Time will tell if what they did works or not. When PB went to $2 a tic, some people thought it was a giant conspiracy....GREED! Whatever. Looks like they knew what they were doing after all.

            This isn't to say I like everthing the lotteries do. I don't like the fact that Texas has 4 draws a day on some of their games. Nobody said we have to play all 4 draws a day. But I understand completely WHY they did it. Lotteries are trying to get creative in increasing revenue, and freshening the games. I see a lot of people think the lotteries are in business to let people make lots of money. Really the lotteries are in business to make the states lots of money. And they don't hide that fact. That's ok.

              If the patterns are good then I say play.

              If there are "not enough system resources to display completely", then you might want to sit out.

              I will be playing Mega Ball number 5, and going for the 4 +1 prize.  $5000

              That is the only real decent prize worth striving for IMO.

                I'll bet you didn't know that I knew that Gary Grief's affiliation is with the Texas Lottery. But he's the fall guy THEY chose to put out front and center stage while the rest of the administrators (?) @ the Mega Millions King(dumb) hid behind the curtain.

                  No fangs. Just setting the facts straight. It gets tiresome seeing "rigged" all the time. The way I see it, no one, including Mr. Grief is putting a gun to anyone's head to play MM or PB.

                  Of course I know Grief is with the Texas Lottery. Read my post above. Texas Lottery pays him to run it. Fall guy? Really? Post your sources.

                      The only problem I have with PB and MM is I think that the computer looks for the least played number sets in each drawing.  That's why I think there is only one winning ticket in most of winning lottery draws.  So, if you have a set of numbers that you play every week and say, 100 other people across the U.S. is playing the same set of numbers, I don't think that set of number will ever come out as the winning set of numbers.  I can't say that it is rigged, but it is not ramdom number drawing.

                        Here's how I see the new MegaMillions game as it pertains to winning a Jackpot:

                        When you buy a ticket, that ticket provides you with one chance to win the Jackpot and 258 million, 900 thousand chances to lose it.

                        Which means I'll be playing one less MegaMillions ticket and one more Powerball ticket, regardless of Jackpot size.

                        Winning the Powerball Jackpot is definitely a shot in the dark.

                        But winning the MegaMillions Jackpot has now become a shot in the dark with a big fat woman from Charlotte on your back with chitlins on her breath.

                              Thanks buckeye,

                              Yeah it's bow season plus I been tryin' to catch up on readin' some of these books I keep buyin'.

                              And I think I'm gettin' soft with the deer. There's so many hangin' around here all the time, they're gettin' to be like old friends. The dogs don't hardly even chase 'em anymore. Gettin' kinda hard to draw down on 'em sometimes. Gettin' soft in my old age I guess. 

                              But then I start thinkin' about that backstrap and the next thing you know all that old touchy-feely stuff goes out the window, heh,heh,heh.
