      With 1-3-5-7-9 being the second most played combination to 1-2-3-4-5, I'm guessing 2-4-6-8-10 can't be far behind.

      This seems to happen alot here in Florida. Here a few I can remember:

      47 winner played 14-15-16-17-18 for $4,581.74.

      24 winners played 2-4-6-8-12 for $8,552.30

      *I can only imagine what they would have won if the numbers were 2-4-6-8-10

       

      Guess Who's Back?

        I would never play Mass Cash (5/35) with such a simple combination. It seems simple, no?

        Imagine how high the people who checked their Fantasy 5 tickets felt before they went to bed

        knowing they have won over 100 thou then waking up and being told sorry sir, you get $1,995.32.

        I know, its still better than winning nothing but that gotta hurt.

          goes to show any combination of numbers is possible and of course many are willing to play those numbers.

           

          Just like playing the date for pick 3 and 4. You will hit once in a while for sure if you can get the number in before it is played out and locked.

            The number 911 is heavily played when that date rolls around, and is usually locked out within a couple hours, in all states that have pick 3 games.

              Most every "How to Play the Lottery" guide I have ever read says don't play these sort of numbers.

              I would like to see a big JP game hit 01-02-03-04-05 just to see how many thousands of players play

              these numbers.  Every set has the exact same odds but a person should use their head at least a little

              bit when they play.  Congrats to the winners, 2K is a fair chunk of change.

              I will consider the opinion that my winnings are a product of chance if you are willing to consider

              they are not.  Many great discoveries come while searching for something else

                Imagine sleeping all night figuring that you won $195,000  thenwaking up finding that you won $2K....... yikes.

                Yowie, I won $10 on 3 yames tonight.

                I can't retire either.

                You can't retire from being retired. If I did I would have to go to work! I don't wanna do that!

                  Worst yet, think about the friends, neighbors and relatives who won't be able to ask for a little $10K loan.

                        Just like when Pennsylvania Cash 5 had a draw of 5-10-15-20-25!

                         

                        cash5

                        Winning Numbers: 05  10  15  20  25

                        242 players matched 5, each receiving $439.00
                        402 players matched 4, each receiving $110.50
                        6269 players matched 3, each receiving $7.50
                        56593 players matched 2, each receiving $1.00

                          I just logged in to post about the Cash 5 drawing in PA and see that you posted ahead of me ... good work, I never forgot that drawing ... some people going to bed that night thinking their "ship" had finally come in ... only to find out the next morning that a "rowboat" was sitting in the harbor!

                          There was also a Treasure Hunt drawing on Dec 04, 2010 ... 1,2,3,4,5 that had a large number of winners. It's a "Cash 5" like game that goes off in the afternoon.

                          12/04/10
                          Winning Numbers: 01  02  03  04  05

                          49 players matched 5, each receiving $1,266.00
                          117 players matched 4, each receiving $100.00
                          1,827 players matched 3, each receiving $6.00
                          13,940 players matched 2, each receiving $1.00

                          It's just not a good idea to play common or easy picks ... or else the reward will probably be small. Even odd ball picks can sometimes have many winners or more than you would expect. Some years back in PA, again with the Cash 5 game ... the numbers came out ... all in the 30's ... I figured no one would have those numbers and the jackpot would surely carry over ... nope, there were three winning tickets, I guess maybe quick picks, can't imagine someone would play all five numbers in the 30's, so anything can happen.

                          ...

                            wow so next time if you hit the 'jackpot' and your numbers are similar to these

                            don't be too excited as you may not exactly be the sole winner Poke
