Subscriptions  across  state lines is the only way to go, but it's more like wishful thinking right now. We have our politicians to thank for that.

    Mass Cash went from 2 days a week to 7 days a week, so now is too expensive for season ticket.

    The odds of winning anything playing Megabucks doubler is 1 in 54 so at best a full year subscription ($104) has a only a 10% chance of breaking even. It looks like it might take a year for or more for the jackpot to even reach the 14 million to 1 odds. The $2500 second prize for matching 5 out of 6 is better than most but the odds against are 54,200 to 1.

    The odds playing MM are much better and we don't have to pay $100 upfront. Hopefully somebody will explain why playing Megabucks doubler by subscription is better option because I can't see it.

        I did hit 4 numbers in last years subscription for $100 and was one number away from 5 numbers. 

        That did pay for the subscription.  Some may consider that lucky.

         

        Lottery players shouldn't care about the odds, which are never any good for any game to begin with.

        The bottom line if you are not in the game you're not going to win it.  And someone usually does win it.

          "Got lucky and broke even" isn't exactly a strong betting strategy, especially after a years worth of play.

          "Lottery players shouldn't care about the odds, which are never any good for any game to begin with."

          For every player that wins $100 and breaks even, nine players are lucky if they only lose $96. The bottom line is players must beat overwhelming odds just to win the second prize.

            Yeah, I wish subscription could be offered across state lines, then I wouldn't have to worry about sending money to my friend in Ohio who buys our tickets for us.   I like the idea of being able to claim anonymously in Ohio.   I kinda wish Utah had the lottery, but glad they don't.  I know I would spend a lot more than I already do, so it is a good thing in the end.  Plus, the anonymous thing in Ohio would trump buying tickets in Utah anyway (unless Utah had lottery and anonymous claiming available.)
