The Megamillions people a while back decided to make the odds far worse (for winning the jackpot) while announcing that they were improving the odds (of not losing a dollar).
It was supposed to make for giant jackpots.
It appears that lottery players were not as stupid as the Megamillions people assumed they were.
The $656M jackpot under the old matrix was drawn on a 19th draw.
We've just had a 20th draw on the "new" "better" matrix.
$187M. The draw didn't even sell 30 million tickets.
Heckuva job MegaMillions people. Heckuva job. The game is dying, much as I predicted it would when this poor decision was made.
