After the changes are enacted, the odds of winning the jackpot — which was a record $590.5 million in 2013 — will increase to 1 in 292,201,338, up from 1 in 175,223,510.    The odds of winning $4? That will improve from 1 in 111 to 1 in 92. The new rules will take effect with tickets purchased starting Oct. 4 for the Oct. 7 drawing.

 

Pathetic...

I will buy a ticket when the jackpot reaches astronomical levels only.  Living in Calif, the 5/6 prize is usually well below $1 million and the chances of winning that will also be more difficult.  I will spend the 2 bucks I didnt spend on PB on SuperLotto.  The odds on superlotto are suppose to be 1:40 mil. However, there have been so few winners this year I have to wonder about that, too.

    These changes are pure insanity!  I was playing $2 PB for $1m after NY SM went bust. but no more PB for me; I aint even touching MM no more.
    I might go back to C4L now.

    I'll stick with T5 for $50k easy, or QD or Win4 instead of such long $1m odds!
    Not surprised why so many play scratchers instead, the lottery killed all the games!

      I am not a fan of the change but what do you do.  You can boycott the game or play when you like so since I only play $2 to $3 a drawing I will continue to do so.  In hopes of win the million or two million prize.  Good luck to you!-weshar75
