    Well, that means I won't have to play Texas Lotto again until sometime in August.

      I'm sticking with my opinion: Texas should NEVER have gone with the bonus-ball format, and should have stuck with a 1/59 like NY (without the 40% prize return and annuity selection problems).  States like NJ are good models for lottery games.

        Todd:

        I think you meant 6/59 ($1 per play.) The two drum format IMO should not be tried unless you're going to pay EVERYBODY who matches only the bonus ball.

        Lotto Texas has a 52% prize return. TX is the same as NY in requiring the choice when you PLAY.
