                    Good luck. Back in 2004, I had a dream that my birthday won the New York lottery on New Year's Day (but in real life, that's never happened as far as I know).

                    Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                    In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                      The key to winning any lottery is just to be a player.I buy one lottery ticket whenever i feel like playing, i used to buy multiple tickets, but i do not anymore since most of the jackpots in new york are won in long island.That is why i stopped playing ny lotto, sweet million and take 5.I do not see the poor neighborhoods winning too many jackpots.I only play mega millions and powerball.I wonder why other players only play mega millions and powerball too.By the way i saw the same pattern with powerball and mega millions, i decided to buy one ticket when the jackpot is very high.Most lotteries think that they will make more money by increasing the ticket cost, but they have to offer higher starting jackpots and better odds to get what they want.The jackpot has to roll faster.POWERBALL  will cost $2 per ticket next year, and i will continue to buy one ticket whenever the jackpot reaches $100 millions.The powerball jackpot will roll to $100 millions faster because of the new ticket cost of $2.There is no doubt that more players will win second prizes of $1 million and the jackpot.Powerball will try to change the game matrix when they see more winners.When you increase the ticket cost to a level that players can't afford, and they are not winning THEY WILL STOP PLAYING OR PLAY LESS OFTEN FOR LESS MONEY WHICH REALLY HURTS THE LOTTERY BOTTOM LINE (SALES).

                      "In New York, the state lottery is fighting to keep its in-state games competitive with its multi-state offerings.

                      Sales for the multi-state Mega Millions and Powerball lottery games soared 21 percent and 14 percent, respectively, in the first six months of the year compared to the same period in 2010, according to the state Lottery Division.  Sales are up $60 million for the two games.

                      But the fortunes for Lotto, launched in 1978, and Sweet Million, started in 2009, have been poor.  Sales for Lotto are down $11.5 million, or 15 percent, between January and June as compared with the same period last year, while Sweet Million is down $5.4 million, or 21 percent.

                      Lottery Director Gordon Medenica said traditional lottery games aren't as appealing to players as they once were because of the lower prize payouts.  Also, the lottery has scaled back its promotions of the games due to the drop off in sales.

                      "I think players over time have come to realize that the winning experience isn't as rich in Lotto as it is in Mega (Millions), Powerball or any of other draw games," he said."

                        Hi Thrifty,

                        Thanks for a very informative post and for the link to the article about the New York lottery. I know that the big games have hurt the sales of the in State games, but what I l don't understand is why.  [I finally got a chance to respond and now there's an electrical storm and I can't finish writing. This is so funny because when I bought my Powerball ticket last week there was lightening when I left the store. I wasn't exacly thrilled at that moment when I thought about what the statistics say.] LOL Gotta go!
