You know that I could possibly spend another year playing for and not gaining a thing from "pick 6" and "5+1" games here in Oregon. So I have spent the better part of the morning reading the games offered here in Oregon from the state lottery. I have found a game that I like besides Keno that plays every day. Keno was a drain on the pocket book back in 2004 so I stopped playing because I would have my numbers that I would like to play and you could spend hours trying to get those numbers and not hit anything. Besides the most I have ever won off Keno was a $2 QP for a little over $200. So I do not think I am missing the ship on Keno. But the game that is going to be my new focus in 2006 is none other than, you guessed it "Pick 4". I have never played "Pick 4" in the almost 10 years I have been a regular lottery player and with the chance to win as much as $5000 for as little as $1 if you match exact order. What have I got to lose, I think that I will start to play on the weekends for every one of the draws on saturday and sunday. I will start out with QP's until I get the hang of it and then maybe will go to my own numbers. I want 2006 to be different than the same old losing to the big jackpots games. So maybe a smaller more realistic game to win at will for me be more fun to play.
