September 22, 2005, 1:24 amAnother 3/5 In Cash 5
My winnings continue to pile up (so are my losses, but that's no fun to hear, is it?). This is my winning ticket, worth $10 (important numbers censored for my protection).
September 13, 2005, 12:54 amBelieve It Or Not
Whether you think you're one or not, and you very well may be, I am definately a Lottery Expert. What exactly is Lottery Expert though? It's someone who knows how to play, what you get should you win, and someone who knows how the game and the industry works. There are plenty of people here who fall into that category.
I say this because someone has joined this board reletively recently, and while this member claims to have studied the lottery, he has been bleeding ignorance. I won't say exactly what he has said, but they're pretty dumb. And while I have seen dumb posts from others, they never claimed to be expert on the subject like this guy has. This guy is extremely arrogant, even more than me. If you know who I'm talking about, don't take him seriously. He doesn't know what he's talking about.

August 29, 2005, 8:36 pmBiggest Win Yet!
This is the biggest win I've ever had. I've just won $40 playing Lucky For Life. I knew it was my lucky day today. I got the last seat in the English class I needed. And I won $4 with scratchers at the brew pub. Hey, it may be an annuity game, but CO, it's still more than you won today (I think).
August 26, 2005, 10:20 pmBring Instant Match to PA!
Do you ever play Pick 3/4 in NJ? Or The Numbers in RI? If so you're probably aware of the "Instant Match" feature. I played it once in NJ, and it's a lot of fun. It's true instant gratification. No waiting, no thinking, not even any scratching. Just match any of the Instant Match numbers with any of your numbers, and you win.
Which begs the question, why aren't more states doing this? And for one, why isn't PA, the most innovative lottery around, doing it. Daily Number and Big 4 are mondo popular, and the Instant Match would only make it more popular. They have the capability to do it, because they have an Instant Win feature in Lucky For Life. The problem with that is it only has one prize ($10), it only says "Winner" or "No Winner", and it's a mandatory feature. I'd much rather have a game that needs livening up, like DN or B4, getting such a feature. So how about it, Gus? Think you can do without scratchin' for one game?
August 26, 2005, 10:10 pmI think I've isolated the virus.
O.K. It's not a virus. But one member has been making one too many dumb posts. They're rediculous, or arrogant, or both. And some posts are just putting a previous message in question form. Hey, at least Cash Only's posts make sense, even if they're said over and over.
I wouldn't be surprised if this particular member was even too young to play. I smell someone naive.
August 12, 2005, 11:31 pmWhat's With All These Idiots?
I have seen a lot of dumb ideas and comments lately. I won't point them out here, because I don't want to name names. But my god, they're almost as dumb as what AnnuityIsGreat said. I'm sure some of you know what I'm talking about. Wether it's unfeasible, or a recommendation of what the rest of us would call a doomsday theory, I've been hearing it. I'll now, but before I go.

I've bought some tickets for tonight's big PA Cash 5 jackpot ($370,000). I got a wierd combo in the last line, 12-25-26-29-30, and I know if this comes up, I'll probably have the jackpot all to myself. But this is also why computers should'nt draw numbers. Get a quick pick, look at the numbers, and you'll see that computers can't draw truly random numbers.

June 13, 2005, 7:05 pmNew Take 5 Winfall
It rolls over. It rolls down. It rolls into stores when I become lottery director.
Cost: 2 plays for $1
Here's how it works, pick 5 numbers from 1 to 55. And do it again because you get 2 plays for a dollar, just like New York Lotto. And also like Lotto, when there's no top prize winner, the jackpot gets bigger. But once the jackpot exceeds $1,000,000, the entire top prize pool rolls down to all lower prize levels, not just the 4 out of 5 winners, but the 3 of 5 and 2 of 5 winners too. Take 5 has never been more exciting, play the new Take 5 WinFall today!

June 12, 2005, 12:16 am$10 Win Today
I won $10 playing PA Cash 5, one 2/5 worth $1 from my trusty set of numbers, and one 3/5 worth $9 from a prediction by KyMystikal. I'm definately going to use more predictions from here more often, or at least the predictions by people who don't post 1,000 at a time. Predictions won me $3 here and there with P-Ball, but this is my biggest yet. Maybe I can sneak over to NJ and buy some Jersey Cash 5 tickets there, it's up to $340,000.
June 11, 2005, 2:19 amLucky For Life. The top prize may suck, but everything else...
I know CASHOnly is probably going to come to my house and maim me, but I've been playing Lucky For Life, and you know what, it's a nice little game. I won $10 in the Instant Win feature last Sunday, which is great because that truly is instant gratification. No scratching or anything. But why is it a mandatory feature? Why can't it be optional like SC's Add-A-Play? And why can't all the other games have their own optional instant win feature? And it's also a dying breed, by that I mean the low matrix pick-6 game. Nowadays it seems like a 6/42 is a low matrix. But only six traditional pick-6 games have matrixes lower than 6/42 (AZ, DC, LA, PA, WI, and WV). But anyway, the payouts for the actual draw are pretty good for the most part, considering the other half of the $2 went to the instant win. Especially the 5/6 payout of $2000, for a 6/38 that's phenomenal. Lotto South doesn't even pay out $2,000 for a 5/6 and that's a 6/49 (a pretty good one at that). But I do agree with CO with one thing, the game needs a cash option, about $500,000 to be exact. That's a pretty good prize for a 6/38, comparable to DE Lotto's avg. jackpot in it's heyday.
