Does it pay was the question.

If I take out my 4/5 from MadDog10's competition where I didn't want to post the MB, my calculation is:

4/5 paid 500 for one line of 4/5 if not full system.
The odds for this were 1:52834,9.
In a fair game you might expect 52,834.90 dollars.
If they keep half of the cash, you still expect 26,400.00 dollars, I rounded.
26,400 - 500 = 25,900 dollars that I am missing.
On the top you say that you pay taxes on the winnings, so it is getting worse.
At roulette they keep 1/37 of the payout, fairer, isn't it?

          I dont like it per se.  But its better than a sharp stick in the eye.

          I like generally like to play a $2 dollar wheel, so I am kind of partial to MM.

          Besides NY never had PB for a long time, so I am not going to go out of my way to play their game.

          They came to New York set the bait and changed the price.  FU!!

          I would rather play two virtually useless tickets instead of one virtually useless ticket.

          I would rather play four useless lines instead of two useless lines.

          Besides I am getting good at picking the MM number.  I can now play $15 lines and be guaranteed to get 1 dollar back.

            Now that you've played it a few times, do you like it?

            Will you continue to play it?

            Will the new matrix affect how much you spend on it?

              LOL.

              That gives me an idea.

              MM should change the prize they award for getting just the Megaball with the 2x Megaplier.

              Instead of the measly $2, they should give you a year's subscription to the Jelly of the Month Club.

              It's the gift that keeps on giving.

                            I don't like the new matrix. But the megaplier option is probably the key to winning a few million dollars.
