If no, why?

If yes, why and what should the new game be called?

    No. No more consolidation.

    The lottery is already a state sanctioned monopoly gambling operation. What we need is competition!

    Imagine if you could choose between different vendors, like you go to 7-11 or Kroger stores and you have one vendor's games, but you go to gas stations and Liquor stores and you have another, and they compete with eachother for the best games and payouts. Imagine that, competition!

    Or imagine if you could choose not just state lottery games, but city/county or federal lottery games. Maybe the feds could make a lottery to benefit our military veterans and their families. Would you play that? I would.

      I voted no. Doing do would probably be the knock put punch for a lot of stte lotteries.

      Jon D,

      A long time ago I wrote to the Illinois lottert and suggested putting an option on draw game tickets that a certain amount of the ticket price would go to libraties, fire stations, etc.... They replied and said no can do. Then they started coming out with scratchers that benefit charities.

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

      Lep

      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.

        No because the roll overs would be smaller.  You can not build a jackpot up if you are drawing every day of the week.  You need time in between draws to build up the jackpots so no.-weshar75

            A draw everyday would not be good in my eyes, sounds expensive and the JP's wouldn't be as big!

                  Merge both games,
                  sell the combination at 5 dollars,
                  5 numbers out of 90,
                  1 powerball out of 50.

                  Shoot the first one to win,
                  money goes to the military.

                      CHOICE.  Give the people the choice, to pick their losers. Sure makes them feel like winners. HUH?.

                        Yes. Mega Millions and Powerball should combine into 1 game with Monday through Sunday drawings at $5 per ticket. Bigger jackpots?
