When are they ever going to make these games actually hard to win?

Winners are making a mockery of these games and laughing all the way to the bank.

Both need to at least be 5 + 1 games with matrix of 1 - 999,999 on white balls and 1 - 500,000 on bonus balls.  I'd like to see those games be won really often lol.

Both games are bound to go bankrupt due to being fleeced by too many winners.

    I find both of these games hard to win. I would like to see more jackpot ticket winners instead of 1 ticket winner or 2. Money at any level is more money in the bank for more lotto tickets.

      Maybe the games aren't random enough that smart players unlike yourself and me are able to predict their outcomes.  Ohio Classic Lotto(6/49) has gone over two years without a hit and now has the largest jackpot in the world.  It only has a pool of 49 numbers and no bonus numbers so that's proof that a larger pool of numbers is not necessary to make a game difficult to win.

          Put that game in Michigan and it would be won on the first draw.

          Ohio never wins anything.  The states that win are California, New York, New Jersey, Georgia, Florida, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.

            ...but still not enough money unless it's all the money of the all-time high jackpot. Haven't you heard?

            Small games, frequent wins, and regular payouts 'cause.....

                States do not win the lottery.  People win the lottery.  Anyone who insists otherwise is a moron.

                  Powerball rolled last night, this is amazing!

                  How is it possible that nobody won?

                    Apparently you didn't buy a ticket. Otherwise you would have won because it's too easy.

                        Lottery players are waiting until it rolls back to $100 Million.

                          States keep most of the lottery money through taxes.
