Heck, that's actually worse than Monopoly Millionaires' Club
Not sure why it didn't save my edit.
Anyway, even at $243 this game only pays out 70% which is more than most lotteries but still less than some scratch-offs in many states.
El Gordo wouldn't work in the U.S. because the states can't hardly even cooperate for the other games. Look at MM and PB. Run by 2 different groups. The closest thing they've come up with is MMC and that was a flop. And federally-encouraged gambling wouldn't go over well for many of the lobbyists and their backers.
