    I dont play windfall very much, I prefer the big Jackpots such as Mega Millions. Also, since Windfall is only in Michigan, youd think that there will be more Jackpot millionaires. Not so, I think since the game had started this time in Michigan, there had only been 2  Jackpot winners. Another thing that I hate about this game, it takes forever for the game to get big. It only goes up around $100,000 each time no one wins. Not to mention, the odds are less than Mega Millions.  Windfall is played in one state and unlike Mega Millions, that's played in 11 now.

      I previously mentioned that I'm guessing a significant number of people don't play unless the $5 million cap is reached.

        It does stink how long it takes for the game to reach the cap.  But it is a good game.  This game I dont think is supposed to be a jackpot game.  Thats why they capped it off and made it "roll down" at $5 million.  I mean 1 in 1000 odds to win around $1000 is my type of game.  You can still win something that is somewhat a lot of money.  Mega Million..sure it would be better to win $30 million but the odds are almost 5 times harder then the jackpot amount.  Michigan should find a way to get this game to rollover bigger amounts.

          Brad:

          AFAIK the prize return is 55%; few lotto games pay winners that much. The alternative would be to pay less on the lower tiers, putting a higher % into the jackpot level.
