Interesting! I guess they feel the Odds of Winning get better because fewer people will play - BUT - if fewer people play - then the Jackpot won't exactly get Bigger... Hmmmm - something to contemplate... but as far as MY opinion goes - I liked the $1.00 Price Point MUCH better - easier for the MIND to justify a $1.00 purchase for a "Try" than a $2.00 purchase. (IMO)

The other day the jackpot was $124 million, how much higher does it need to go for more people to play? At $2 a game I'll stick with state's Lotto.

Personally, I'm less likely to buy the tickets with the dollar increase on a chance. If I have $10 to spend on tickets, I'll only buy 5 instead of ten.... That doesn't exactly increase sales

So double the price means double the jackpots?? I liked $1 bet on a chance to win 213 million or so..Not sure this is a good thing??????
