too bad lotteries couldn't get winfalls all the time. They were only expecting a two million dollar jackpot and look what it ended up being. People buy a lot more tickets when they know it could winfall. When Michigan had Winfall it was the same thing. $5,000,000 jackpot and people would buy tickets like hotcakes.

The lower-tier prizes were actually LOWER than usual for a Winfall. It's still probably the best US lotto game since it has a 60% payback.

I know Michigan's prizes seemed to be the same amount as Mass Winfalls and Mass Winfalls tickets are $2. Then again Michigan capped the jackpot at an annuitized $5 million which would in turn have about $3,000,000 to roll down. But really the numbers were really high...i wonder why mass winfalls prizes weren't worth more. (I forgot they were $2 tickets in my previous post)

The jackpot has not yet climbed back to the maximum, but Massachusetts is giving away a trip to "Lost Wages" to a lucky CW player. Go to www.masslottery.com for more information.
