Part 9. TEXAS LOTTERY COMMISSION
Subchapter D. LOTTERY GAME RULES
16 TAC §401.305
The Texas Lottery Commission adopts amendments to 16 TAC §401.305, concerning "Lotto Texas" on-line game rule, without changes to the proposed text as published in the March 31, 2000 issue of the Texas Register (25 TexReg 2740).
The amendments change the way Lotto Texas is played by adding four additional balls, changing the direct prize category percentages for each of the prize categories, increasing the guaranteed fourth prize amount from $3.00 to $5.00, increasing the prize pool from 50% to 55%, and increasing the odds of winning. See Figure: 16 TAC §401.305(e)(1). The amendments also clarify that a retailer may enter the number selections via the terminal keyboard if a player is unable to complete a playslip and that the prize reserve fund may be used only for the Lotto Texas game. Other amendments are "clean up" changes to eliminate obsolete language or typographical errors.
Lotto Texas sales have continued to decline. The amendments that change the way Lotto Texas is played by adding additional balls, changing the direct prize categories, increasing the guaranteed fourth prize amount from $3.00 to $5.00, increasing the prize pool from 50% to 55%, and increasing the odds of winning are intended not only to stop the decline in sales but also to increase sales. Lotto Texas sales are jackpot driven. This means that the higher the jackpot, the higher the sales are. Currently, player research indicates Lotto players want higher jackpots. Since Lotto Texas jackpots have not reached these higher levels in recent years, players are buying fewer tickets and, as a result, sales have declined. Also, Lotto Texas is experiencing "jackpot indifference syndrome". When a jackpot plateau is hit, sales traditionally are a little bit lower the next time at the same jackpot level. For example, years ago, a jackpot of $4 million, $7 million, or $10 million was a significant jackpot. Today, a jackpot has to reach $40 million or $50 million in some states, and, in other states, $100 million to experience an exponential lift in sales.
Additionally, Texas border states, New Mexico and Louisiana, participate in a multi-state game that is designed to have mega-jackpots. As a result, Texans cross the borders to play the multi-state games, especially when the jackpots are high. The amendment to increase the number of balls from 50 to 54 is intended to increase the jackpot amounts which will be comparable to these jackpot amounts in the multi-state games with the expectation that players will play Lotto Texas rather than travel to play the multi-state games.
The amendments also increase the guaranteed fourth prize amount from $3.00 to $5.00. Currently, the greatest numbers of Lotto Texas winners are the ones that match 3 of 6 balls. Player research indicates that players want more than $3.00 at the lower prize level. Increasing the guaranteed amount from $3.00 to $5.00 is in response to player requests.
Additionally, the amendments increase the prize pool from 50% to 55%. Increasing the prize pool is a benefit for the players because an additional 5% of sales will be available to pay prizes to players. Further, the combined effects of increasing the prize pool and increasing the number of balls will increase sales, and, as a result, additional revenue will be transferred to the state.
The amendments also change the direct prize category percentages for each of the prize categories. Increasing the direct prize categories for each of the prize categories will have the following effect. Based on an annual projection of 52 weeks, 104 draws, overall sales projected for Lotto Texas are $736 million. Today, the trend is approximately $570 million. The overall sales increase is approximately $166 million. On a tier-by-tier basis, on Match 6 (6 of 6), 29 winners are expected annually. The average expected jackpot prize, on a 25 year payout basis, is $19 million. Currently, the expected jackpot prize is $11 million but $9 million is the actual average jackpot amount. Currently, on a Match 5 (5 of 6), the payout is approximately $1,500. By increasing the direct prize category percentages, the payout on a Match 5 will be approximately $2,500. On a Match 4 (4 of 6), the increase is from $100 to $105. Finally, the Match 3 (3 of 6) amount increases from $3.00 to $5.00.
The changes to the Lotto Texas matrix also benefit the retailers. The Texas Lottery anticipates an additional $8 million in sales commissions to the retailers based upon the projected sales. The Texas Lottery also anticipates an added benefit to the retailers will be an increase in store traffic on Wednesdays and Saturdays as a result of higher jackpots. In the past, when Lotto Texas jackpots were high, retailers experienced an increase in store traffic on draw days.
At the time the amendments were proposed, the Texas Lottery was aware of recent experience by Florida in connection with changing Florida's Lotto matrix. The information from Florida was helpful to the Texas Lottery because it provided the Texas Lottery with recent information on the impact of a Lotto matrix change which involved adding additional balls. In October 1999, Florida changed its matrix from a 6 of 49 to 6 of 53. From an odds perspective, the change in Florida is similar to the change in Texas. As of March 2000, Florida experienced a 26% increase in sales and a 29% increase in the jackpot amount. Additional information indicates that Florida projected reaching $100 million in incremental sales over a period of a year. However, Florida reached $98 million in four months. The Texas Lottery is aware that at the time Florida changed its matrix it also increased its number of draws per week from one to two. While the increase in sales, to some extent, is because of the increase in draws per week, it appears that the primary reason for the increase in Florida Lotto sales is the matrix change.
During the comment period, the Commission received written comments as well as oral comments. Oral comments were received at the April 13, 2000 Commission meeting and the April 19, 2000 public rulemaking comment hearing. The Commission received comments against the adoption of the amendments as well as comments for the adoption of the amendments.

The following is a summary of the comments received during the comment period from persons who indicated they were opposed to the proposed amendments but offered additional comments:
Comment: Many commenters indicated that they did not want the odds to go to 1 in 25 million and if the change is made, these commenters will not play.
Response: The Commission recognizes the commenters' opposition in connection with increasing the odds; however, the Commission understands the Lotto game to be jackpot driven. When jackpots are high, more people buy tickets. The Commission understands that it may lose some players because of the increase in the odds of winning; however, the Commission believes higher jackpots will bring players to the game, and, as a result, offset the loss of players who will not play because of the increase in the odds of winning.
Comment: Many commenters suggested that there should be more winners with lower jackpots.
Response: The Commission disagrees with the comments because player research indicates that most players play Lotto Texas to win high jackpots and do not play when the jackpots are at low levels. Actual sales information for recent years supports this statement.
Comment: Many commenters indicated that the odds of winning should be decreased for the players, not increased.
Response: The Commission disagrees with the comment because decreasing the odds of winning would generate lower jackpots and thereby reduce sales amounts.
Comment: Many commenters do not want four extra balls.
Response: The Commission understands the comment but believes that adding four balls will generate higher jackpots and, in turn, higher sales. Player research indicates that Lotto players want higher jackpots and play this particular game for the chance to win high jackpots. Sales history supports this contention because when jackpots reach high amounts, more tickets are sold than at lower jackpot levels.
