      I don't want a bigger jackpot, especially at the expense of the odds becoming worse than they are now!

      I can be content with $20,000,000 just as much as I could with $2,000,000.  The "jackpot bandwagon" may see only dollar signs but I believe losing track of the odds is foolish. 

      Increasing the jackpot does not help players' advantage, strategy, or skill.  Instead, it taxes and depletes them, rendering them almost ineffective.

      I liked the Big Game back when the final number had a smaller number field.  Don't be hoodwinked!  Demand games that have reasonable odds, not near-impossible odds.

      Don't lose sight of just how much money $2,000,000. really is.

            OK, now I know that I am 'fused'.

            So, who added the 'con' which, in turn, 'con-fused' me enough to think that I will win both the M.M jackpot tonight AND and the P.B jackpot tomorrow night?

                    There are other decision-makers, like the prize return (one game still pays only 40%!)

                      I guess it depends most on the JACKPOT.

                          When there's a $200 million jackpot, it's probably the prize.

                              Bigger jackpot? Better odds?

                              Less filling? Tastes great?
