|The North Dakota Lottery offers five multi-state games, and ticket sales are highly dependent on big jackpots, Miller said. North Dakota also experienced record lottery sales in 2012 and 2013, and Miller said the number of jackpots during those two years resulted in player fatigue in 2014, with some players waiting for bigger jackpots before jumping into the game. “You can’t continually sustain that growth,” he said, adding, “We’re very pleased with the results of the lottery.”|
|Rebecca Hargrove, chairwoman of Monopoly Millionaires' Club and president and CEO of the Tennessee Lottery, said officials want to learn from the game, which was aimed at players who have asked for prize money to be split between more people.

|“In any industry, innovation is the name of the game,” said New Mexico Lottery CEO David Barden. “We will continue to innovate on behalf of players who have asked for a game that shares the wealth among many winners rather than makes only a few people extraordinarily rich.”|
“Lotteries developed the MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES’ CLUB game concept based on feedback from players across the nation who desired a game with the potential to make many people millionaires rather than just one person winning many millions,” said Alice Garland, executive director of the N.C. Education Lottery. But sales have disappointed the participating lottery agencies, Garland said. The focus now will be on reviewing and improving the game to create one “ truly entertaining to our players and one that they will really enjoy," Garland said.
