    I'm not a fan of it. I still playn the same numbers as I do for PB and MB(Wisconsin's mega bucks),but my largest number is 47, and as we all know, the numbers go up to 75. I still will drop a dollar or two, but now, I spend more on MB.

     

     

    Oh well, who knows.

      Yeah, I think a lot of players made up their mind beforehand that they weren't going to play the new game but a lot of them will probably play when the jp gets up there. I still play a QP like I always did but I dropped my b/d numbers. I don't have any kids who were born on the 75th.

      Aren't you 75 years old? I agree, $1 Mega Millions Quick Pick Ticket will do, although buying more tickets gives you more chances of winning something.

        No, I'm 85, so I can't use those numbers.

        If you're only buying one ticket, get the megaplier.

        Don't be a cheapskate.

          Tried a few times, only hit two times of $2, still looking for bigger prizes in the future after February 2014, after my return from Asia.

            From your comment and others, it sounds like MM's move, regardless of it's own success, if any, may be helping out a lot of the state's own games collaterally.   .

              Why are you going to Asia?

              What country?

                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?

                Yes

                Yes

                    Seems like there are less large 2nd tier winners with MM.  I buy equal amounts of PB and MM and by far win more with PB.  With that said I will continue to play MM as you can't win if you don't play.

                      Ah, he must have left already.

                      Oh well...

                      I wanted to tell him about a restaurant to avoid over there.

                      I got some really bad Chop Suey over there one time.

                      Oh man, it was terrible.

                      Oh man, I can't even talk about it. 

                      My lips go numb just thinkin' about it.

                        I'm wondering who thought the 4/56 + 1/46 with overall odds of 1 in 40 of winning something was easy to win. Maybe it's someone who matched 5 + 0 or won the jackpot who knows the odds of winning again will be longer. How can the odds be worse for those playing $2 every drawing who probably hardly ever even cashed?

                        There should be less jackpots won each year, but the average size of the jackpots should be larger. It will cause problems for the $1 players patiently waiting their turn because there is now almost 259 million turns.

                            I can't afford to spend $100 on the lottery like you. I will be rich like you someday.

                              Destiny? Maybe it is Ridge's destiny to win the lottery with $1 or $2.
