So I can't find much of anything on this game in the forum. There's literally only been 4-6 winners since it started last year and you can see sales going down. I've tracked it and there's only a winner every 4 months or so. It's not very popular either, probably because the payouts aren't the best compared to the odds. I think GA should revamp the game and make the odds better, or add more payouts. What good would it do to send an email to lottery officials?

    Mass Megabucks Doubler is like Ga Jumbo Lotto. $1 to win millions, worth a try--get a multi-draw ticket and see what happens.  I started playing Megabucks because they send the ticket by UPS.

    As for the lottery changing the game--they won't as long as it makes money for them.

    Good luck if you decide to play.

      I don't know about the popularity or profitability of this game as I'm not a Georgia resident. I do play and know about several of the state jackpot games in the US and Georgia Jumbo Bucks is one that I would actually play. The payouts for this 6/47 game are comparable to the 6/49 games Ohio Classic Lotto and Washington State Lotto with obviously better JP winning odds. Mass Megabucks Doubler (6/49) does have much better 2nd and 3rd prize levels ($2,500 doubler $5,000, and $100 doubler $200) which makes it a slightly more attractive game.

      From what I can tell the jackpot increases seem to be about $100,000 per drawing which is decent for a state game and the $1,000,000 starting jackpot isn't bad, besting Mass Megabucks Doubler which is half of that. Personally given the opportunity if I was on vacation down there I would pick up 5 lines of this game for 26 consecutive drawings. 

      Good luck if you decide for yourself to give it a go!

        Good luck to everyone who plays this game.

        I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Powerball to win the largest Powerball Jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!
