But I have it from authoritative sources (commenters on Lottery Post) that the games are rigged!! How dare you throw up your lying statistics trying to prove otherwise!! LOL

I do not play the lottery everyday. You do not increase your chances of winning by playing everyday.

    Hope for a miracle. The town that sold last nights NY second place ticket only has about 350 people.

    We need a time machine to beat the lottery?

      rcbbuckeye, I hear you, but you live in a winning state.

      New York has more lottery losers than winners.

        Redstang, just wondering, the town is an average town or high income town?  It does show that any place can win, but I would like to wake up and see other states as the winning state.

        $5 lottery draw games will be the new attraction. $1 and $2 games are not good for business.$5 games will prevent the lottery from increasing the odds of winning a jackpot to 1 in billions.

          Mega millions and Powerball are not making the amount of money that they were expecting. These jackpots are taking forever to cross the $100 Million level. Players are not spending big money on Mega Millions odds of 1 in 259 Million and Powerball odds of 1 in 175 Million. The small prizes are too hard too win, and they pay nothing compared to the odds of winning.

            RJOh, that would be a go idea to get more people to buy lottery tickets.  It just feels that less people are excited about playing PB and MM's these days.

            may-be more people might be playing their own state games instead.

            Who is going to play lottery games, where winning small prizes feel like playing for a jackpot? The odds of winning $5,000 in Mega millions are 1 in 739,688. Does the lottery think that lottery players are stupid? The starting jackpots should be $100 Million for Mega Millions and Powerball compared to the odds of winning.

              ALL the lottery games are hard to win. The Texas 2 Step starts at $200,000 with odds of 1 in 1,832,600. I hardly win anything on that.

              But, it only takes one ticket, one time.

              It's worth a buck.
