And i am myself calculating where will they get the 1 million dollar to pay for the 1-million dollar lotto....I think they might bet it from charging people 15 dollars a month for the FAST program where they play your numbers...I'll like to add that when you chose the options to play the hot numbers of that particular month, the numbers may change from month to month...What was hot numbers in one month, may not be hot for the next month...IF they get 50K people to join that FAST option, then they make 750,000 a month....And that 750,000 can help pay for the 1 million dollar jackpot, because there are not winners of the 1 million dollar jackpot every month, but every so often....What i think gets more winners is the "pay your mortgage" lotto, or a car, or 100,000 lotto.....HOw they pay for the 10 Million dollars lotto? That will be advertisers, and all the advertisers will have to come up with 10 Million dollars every year or every other year because that's when players win that particular jackpot...And this way i think is how advertisers advertise, and this way they look good...

Is a possibility...

    I agree with you, Miss NYC and OldSchoolPa.  The odds don't change if the game is the same.  However, in FL where I play a 6/53 game twice a week, no 2 combinations have ever been repeated. 

    Hammer1, like you I've played the same 4 combinations for many years.  I often think of switching to quick picks, but I have a ridiculous fear of changing my numbers.

    Justxploring 

    I was hoping you were in this thread.  

    I wonder if there's an official phobia for fear of not playing your numbers, or changin them.  

    I kind of look at it the opposite, by my playing them, they don't hit.

    Re: the no two combinations have ever been repeated, I think in lotto we can say there are hot numbers, and there are cold numbers, but, considering the human life span and numver of draws required to see any ceertain combo, there is no such thing as due numbers.  

    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

      For the amount of money they are going to share, you know free lotto.com has a thing named FAST where you pay 14 dollars a month, and they play your numbers for you and send you an email letting you know how many you match on each drawing...FAST will play quick picks for you or you can select an option where they select the hottest numbers that have played for that month, and will play them for you every day for every drawing, and drawings are 1 or 2 times a week, so that will be like 3 tickets per drawing....If is 1 a week that's 7 tickets per drawing (and that's the only disadvantage, that you can only play 1 to 3 maybe 7 tickets per drawing)....And you may argue that they may cheat your numbers, but remember is a service you paying for, anything you can sue and win, because you are paying for that service...And is not just 1 lotto that you play but like 6 of them...One of them say you can win 10 Million (pick7) and there is one that's pick6/5 of 32 (for the car)....And what i am trying to say is that if you are going to go into a pool for Ca's Superlotto, i'll go for the free lotto because it has 26 million odds less than california's Superlotto (the one for 1 million dollars)...You may argue that you can buy more tickets with CA's superlotto, but you have the hot numbers options that you may not get with superlotto....Who knows superlotto may offer a better deal than the free lotto (it pays more than the free lotto), but i am just offering an option...And i think playing in group like a syndicate thing is illegal, i am not sure is all fussy....Free lotto also has photos of all the winners that have won, including the 10 million winners...I'll go for free lotto because i don't live in California, and i am not playing PB or MM with those long odds....

      Or for the amount of money they are going to share, i would create a scratch-offs syndicate/group or 20 or 30...Each one puts 10 or 20 dollars each time(like each week) they are going at it, and in 1 day they will empty 1 roll and after that you can go to the next gas station..You could make each person 20 dollars a week, and each week you all go at it...Emptying rolls in each gas station 1 by one but for one particular game/scratch-off...You all ought to hit something...I don't know is just an option...I am definately not going to play CA's SuperLotto each drawing for 10 years....I'll play free lotto's FAST program hot numbers for 10 years but not Ca's Lotto....And i am not playing PB or MM with those vast odds...
