Well, I am crushed.  Bad news, folks: Wild Card is ENDING.  The last game will be held February 24th.

This is a statement from a lottery official:  “Just like with our scratch tickets, lotto games have a life cycle and it’s necessary sometimes to end a game whose playership has fallen off to pave the way for new games to be implemented.”

This news comes immediately following the mega sales from POWERBALL MANIA.  So... I don't know what it means to you, but it tells me that Wild Card, one of the few AFFORDABLE games to play anymore, will be replaced by some new game @ $1 or $2/ line with more challenging odds.  That's the trend, you know. 

Heartbroken... I am.

    I'd sure like to know who they do their market research with, because it sure ain't people I know.

      I just called the lottery commission to ask some questions, in particular, what kind of NEW game they might have in the works.  I had to leave a message with the PR guy.  Let's see if he calls me back.

        I'm pissed. So mad. I've been a loyal fan of this game for years and if they replace it it will probably be another two dollar game with horrible odds. I don't play Mega Millions or Powerball very much and then there is Hot Lotto which is iffy although I like it better than MM/PB because it has better odds, Lucky for Life is a good game but 2 bucks a ticket, Weekly Grand offers a measly prize for 2 dollars a play, Pick 3 isn't a game that gives you large jackpots and I don't like Scratch Offs. So where does that leave players like me? Mad

        I guess I will take my money else where and buy Montana Cash and Oregon's MegaBucks when I visit each state. You can get two plays for a dollar with those games and I can play in advance for 3 months.

        The only way I'll be happy about this is if we get maybe a new Pick 5 game that costs a dollar a line or a Pick 6 game. No extra balls or more than a dollar.

          Hey TSC.  You've said it very well, the drawbacks of those other games.  I keep wanting to study Hot Lotto but the fact that it was rigged a time or two... kind of sticks in my craw... you know.  And it's not fair that you or any of us should have to go to another state to play a decent game!  With this piece of bad news I feel even more motivation to get moved back to Washington.  Ah, 8 years invested in Wild Card, and I love the game as much as I ever did.  This really hurts.

          I think you heard about the British getting super pissed off about their mega game getting too mega.  They don't want outrageous odds @ high ticket prices, and they spoke up about it. 

          grrrrrrr!!!!

                      That's really sad news, I hope all of you who play get a nice win.

                          Well, I am crushed.  Bad news, folks: Wild Card is ENDING.  The last game will be held February 24th.

                          This is a statement from a lottery official:  “Just like with our scratch tickets, lotto games have a life cycle and it’s necessary sometimes to end a game whose playership has fallen off to pave the way for new games to be implemented.”

                          This news comes immediately following the mega sales from POWERBALL MANIA.  So... I don't know what it means to you, but it tells me that Wild Card, one of the few AFFORDABLE games to play anymore, will be replaced by some new game @ $1 or $2/ line with more challenging odds.  That's the trend, you know. 

                          Heartbroken... I am.

                          I Agree! but like the roadrunnercash in New Mexico the payouts are very low. Four numbers for $30!  Ridiculous. I could be wrong but didn't the commission made alot of money off this game?

                          How about them cowboys!

                            I Agree! but like the roadrunnercash in New Mexico the payouts are very low. Four numbers for $30!  Ridiculous. I could be wrong but didn't the commission made alot of money off this game?

                            I don't know how much they made.  But it was an affordable game, and if you want higher payout then all you need to do is run a duplicate ticket.

                            Once this is done I'll be going full steam ahead with another game or two.  I have a Hot Lotto partner in Albuquerque - yayyy!  We'll split the cost of tickets.

                            I will also be trying out Powerball and Mega Millions, once I get all my spreadsheets complete.
