I wish they credited small prizes to subscription account, to be used as credit on renewal. It would be very convenient for subscribers and more efficient for the lottery.

Thanks for that info myturn! Once I had a Canadian Lottery subscription and they would just credit it back to the account for extended draw time.

    I live in Utah and love that I can purchase a year long Mass Megabucks Doubler ticket just by calling the Mass Lottery. I bought my ticket in October and the current Jackpot of 8.1 Millions looks pretty nice. I think Everyone should call them up and order a ticket :)

      I agree, it is a way of demonstrating that you would support a lottery in your state. Politicians can be influenced by economics, follow the money.

        ? Mass. megabucks is still showing 8 million jackpot for the next drawing. 

         

        I'm undecided about getting a megabucks doubler subscription.  I like being able to change my numbers on a whim, not sure I want to commit to the same numbers for 6 to 12 months.

        And there wasn't a Christmas Eve drawing either; the drawing was on the 23rd.

        It makes no sense for players in other lottery states to purchase MM and PB tickets and considering the odds of winning $100 is 1032 to 1 and 54,200 to 1 of winning $2500, pick-3 and pick-4 are better games.

            And for those of you wondering how to cash in if you win... They will send you a check for non jackpot winning amounts. And if you are lucky enough to win the jackpot I'm sure after winning over $8million  you can afford the plane ticket to Mass to claim your prize :) 

            And if you don't wanna fork out $100 for a year long ticket you also have the option of a 3 month or 6 month ticket :) both are currently discount for the holidays just like the year long.

              Pick-3 players get better odds in each of 104 drawings playing 50 cent straight to win $250 and over five times better odds of winning $2500 playing a 50 cent pick-4 straight ticket.

              I'm not knocking subscription play, but there are lots of better games than what the Massachusetts Lottery is offering via subscription.

                I know you aren't knocking subscription play.... And I'm sure there are better games/odd out there....

                But considering Massachusetts megabucks doubler is  the only lotto game available by just calling the lottery office and not having to live in Massachusetts or a state that has legal gambling it's a great deal.

                  Speaking of legalities, gambling is not legal in Utah and Internet gambling is illegal in the U.S. Will you have any legal problems if you win the jackpot making the bet from Utah?

                  That being said, I suppose if it is the only game in town and you want the action, bad odds means nothing.

                    I hope the Massachusetts lottery adopts the New York lottery's policy of crediting low level prizes to subscribers accounts. 
                    It's a practical next step, which would be economically beneficial for the lottery.

                        The number one issue for me, would be anonymity. In the interests of safety and security of winners, they really should be allowed the option of remaining anonymous.

                          Yup all 2015 was via subscription, and 2016 will be the same. but 2016 will be a cheaper year i think as one of the syndicates i run runs out of  cash in Jan, and will fold up. all money collected and won spent.  had a good 6 months run winding  down and continuing small wins. so when its out of cash i have to  re jig the subscriptions. make sure i delete the correct ones etc.  will prob be a drop of $480 in spending  next year

                          2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

                          keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297
