WOW!  I am surprised.  The odds of winning from a dollar are 1 in 22 million and change.  When the cash value of the jackpot is at where the odds of winning are....you don't see to many of those.  I wish I could start playing this game!

    When you see how terrible the lower prizes are (even with two plays/$1) you'll be glad you live nowhere near NY !

      You know I did notice that.  what is up with matching 4 numbers only being $23?  What kind of lottery is that?  And there are 59 numbered balls in that drum.  4 numbers should be around $100.  Nothing less.  And then matching 5..which is may i remind you...one numbers away from winning it all...is around $1400...there should be at least another thousand added on to that.  But hey..when the jackpot is this high....i would give it a shot.  The 5 + Bonus seem to pay good amounts.

        Brad:

        The NY state legislature still prohibits the NY Lotto game from returning more than 40% to players. (This DOES NOT apply to Mega Millions, Take Five 5/39, etc.)

        NY Lotto 6/59 began before NY was allowed to pursue a multi-state game (in fact, the first drawing of Lotto 59 was September 12, 2001.)

        And, of course, NY Lotto (and Mega Millions within NY) still must choose when they PLAY instead of after they win).

        PS- the 5+ bonus is the ONLY positive thing about this game.

            $55 Million to be paid out for the next 26 yrs for the winner.  You gotta play the game.

              Yeah. AIG. NY sure knows how to "back-stab" its players.

                I'll throw in another few bucks for tomorrow's draw.  You can't afford not to play especially when the jackpot is at this stage and the jackpot odds are a lot lower compared to MM.
