The time for PA to dump Super-6 was YESTERDAY, if not LAST YEAR.

PA cannot hope players will come back to it, because it JUST WON'T HAPPEN.

    They definitely need something that's going to either start out with a high prize or roll over better... it would be nice not to have to drive far for MM tix... :-)

            The story Todd posted this morning (6/16) about the huge sales decline in Super-6 is no surprise.

              I look forward to when nobody has to gripe about   Super-6 anymore.

                Unfortunately, PA residents won't be playing MM for a while since the $180 million was hit.

                  This week marks one year since PA joined MUSL...with NO planned replacement for Super-6.

                    CASH,

                    Hasn't PA traditionally changed their games in September. But they need to give 90 days notice. I guess if they announced it sometime this week, Super 6 could be gone by the end of September/early October.

                      September (after Labor Day) had/has been a popular time to make changes/offer new games. Because of 9/11, it probably is different. (The current NY 6/59 game began 9/9/2001-the first drawing was 9/12, and was not televised.)

                      I seem to remember Super-6 beginning in October (1998.)

                      I'm guessing Super-6 will make it into 2004. Don't know if PA is waiting for a jackpot hit before announcing its overdue demise.

                        PA has just approved video lottery.

                        IMO the tracks should NOT be allowed to operate them until Super-6 is replaced.

                          Actually only the PA Senate approved slots. It still must pass the House. (Rendell will definitely sign whatever they send to him).

                            NY is supposed to begin video lottery late this year.

                            Even if PA from now on is going to be more honest about the cash/annuity percentage in Super-6, PA should replace it.

                              Even if PA finally seems to be realistic about the percentage of cash value vs annuity, Super-6 still needs to be retired.
