Hi, Ryan. There WILL be a jackpot winner again in Lotto America, we just never know when. You're right that the game has better odds than Powerball and Mega Millions, and its jackpot is smaller, so it will grow more slowly. But if you want the monster-sized jackpots, that's where Powerball and Mega Millions come in -- you just know that the odds are longer in those games. There actually have been two jackpot winners so far in Lotto America. A Minnesota family won a jackpot of about $23 million in the game, and a Davenport man won a jackpot of a little more than $4 million.

Lotto America may now be the worst game to play. It's only cashed out once since switching over from whatever it was called before. Plus the jackpot doesn't increase very fast...yet I play it because the odds are better.
Maybe someday it will cash out...
