When did the layout/format change on the tickets?

I was really confused when the clerk handed me my tickets and they looked really different. Took a minute to check to make sure everything was correct. I think it looks better, the words/numbers are easier to read.

The non-promo ticket looks the same (just without the PROMO TICKET and second block of text). Just wasn't sure how the tickets would react to the scanner so didn't want to put my other ticket in there.

    Hmmm interesting.....is it only MM or has PB and others changed as well? I think it is easier to read too

    By the way, I think this was raised in the other thread, did you have to buy 5 with MP or were you able to get 10 QPs for the promo?

    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?

      I haven't played PB in a while. I think all the games had the same layout/format before so hopefully they changed them all to this new one.

      And I spent $10 by doing 1 line for 10 draws. Wasn't even aware of the promo, so that was a nice surprise.

        The Texas Lottery ticket looks like that, the Powerball too, and I also did a double-take when I got the tickets.  I think they change things up just to try to justify how much they charge to run the lotteries. "Look!  We're doing something!"

          I noticed it about a week ago.

            I like the new design, seems easier to read.
