I only play the CA Super Lotto Plus. Big money and you have a considerably better chance of winning than the big multi state games like MM. They also have the second chance thing where they give 5 people 15k each a week.

    I think the games in Texas have prizes that are a little too low for the odds. For example Ohio has a 5/39 game that starts at $100,000 and rolls. Our Texas 2 Step is a 4/35 + 1/35 that starts at $200,000 with odds at 1 in 1,832,600. Odds 3 times higher for a starting jackpot $100k more?

    Our Cash 5 game is a 5/37 game that doesn't roll when no one hits. The jackpot is a whopping $17,000. Sometimes it might get to $20,000. It depends on ticket sales. It really sucks.

    The new games they brought out such as All or Nothing are $2 games. Set jackpot $250,000, odds over 2,700,000 to 1. They are set to bring out a new game called Triple Choice. ANOTHER $2 game with a top prize of $100,000. Odds are about 1 in 1,600,000. Do we see a trend here? $2 games, low jackpots, high odds. Gee, thanks. Makes me think about just playing scratchers. Until I see the odds on those things.
