My problem I have with the lottery Games are. 1st place winners win big.(despite tax's who take a chunk of the money) Meaning anything over 4 or 5 million is good. This is after taxes. But the 2nd place winners get nothing compared to 1st place winders. Now I understand that perhaps in 2nd place you would get a few more winders. But from what I been seeing. You can make more winners then only the first place winner. example instead of 1st place getting 12 million and no 2nd place winners. Lets change that to:
1st place win's 6 million (1 winner)
2nd place win's 2 million (3 winners)
It would give more winners!
Really? Are you that greedy that 6 million is not enough?

I hope to win this jackpot prize! Even if after tax which they deduct way too much still a huge amount of money will remain. I need to make plans because soon I'm going to get this!
