I tend to agree with you, but I'm curious to see what will happen when the jackpot maxes out, and there is a potential for a large amount of million dollar winners.
I wonder if (on a national basis) a very large group of players exists that really understands how the game works. Players that I know personally don't have a clue that it's also a raffle. They typically don't get the fact that the raffle winners are triggered by someone winning the jackpot.
If a large group of players that does really understand how the game works exists, then I would think we'd see a frenzy of ticket buying when the jackpot maxes out and there will be 40 or 50 raffle winners once the JP is hit. If no such ticket buting frenzy materializes, then I'd say the game is a flop. G5
