Judging from the success of the Spanish El Gordo lottery. It would be a massive revenue raiser for the states. Regular lottery players would enjoy it and people who don't normally buy tickets would join in the fun.

Would you play "A FAT ONE", if your state was a participant in such a lottery?

We all get a lot out of lotteries!

    Somebody (don't know whom) convinced the state lottery executives that players wanted smaller jackpots with more chances to win $1 million and would gladly pay $5 a ticket. So it should be simple for a "US El Gordo" proponent to convince the lottery brass to offer $243 a ticket game.

      Yes these one winner for all the cash is crap,I know the other game was a big flop,someone that had some skill could come up with a game for many winners,even a scratch off would work.Keep the crooks hands out of it,and this country could turn around....500,000 dollar winners...that would bring some buisnesses,pay off debts,build new homes,etc.......You just cant go wrong with a scratch offs,,,compared to those computer picks.....We need an honest company to make scratch offs for us poor folks....USA JUMBO 500,000 WINNER.............if you win 2 or 3 so be it....make them $50.00 ,,,would I buy them .....of course...

        PA does 2 raffles per year with 4 prizes @ 1 million ea and another 4 prizes @ 100k ea. then several smaller tiered down

        prizes. 

        500k tickets available.

        $20 per ticket.

        They ALWAYS sell out at that price.
