Well, Ohio is thinking about replacing Super Lotto Plus (again). This time, they are trying to go in with a few states (I'm guessing maybe PA, IN, MI, WV, or MD) on a game that would cost $2 (Boo!), but would offer jackpots in excess of $40-50 million (Not bad.). I do like the idea, but not the ticket price. They did not specfy if jackpots would be annuity or lump sum. Any comments?

I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

    Maybe the Mega Millions states should have a secondary game (like Hot Lotto).

      The survey said Ohio would partner with a neighboring state. (Maryland does not border OH.) I suggest that OH introduce this game with PA; the latter dumping Unlucky for Life.

        i know that PA has wanted to go in with OH on a game before, but i doubt PA will get rid of ucky for Life Lotto anytime soon. I think that PA thinks that once more people win the jackpot, it will boost sales.

          If they expect to charge $2 per play, they  going to have better odds than MegaMillions and a good size jackpot amount.  With Rolling Cash5 being a mini jackpot game, I doubt if there will must interest in paying $2 for a ticket with worse overall odds than the other games.

            the main reason why lotteries are charging $2 per game is so they can pay out the prizes.

              So far it looks like Michigan and Ohio are planning this game.

                they need more states to join.

                      I'm guessing PA Unlucky for Life will be gone before the bi-state game starts.

                        with such a small matrix, and only 2 jackpot winners, you would think PA would get the hint.

                          $2 ticket price, non-cash prize, etc.

                            Losing twice (once instantly, again in the drawing)

                              did you also notice that the number of people maching 5 of 6 is not usually that big. does PA take a look at the payouts? that should give them a clue about the sales.
