You know, I'll be danged if I can find a press release on this game detailing the Game and Game odds itself and the method of draw selection.

It's possible I'm just missing something... guess Anything Is Possible now-a-days.

If you found one, let me know.

I feel your frustration JADE! I was just on the Illinois lotto website, and they did have a section explaining how to play My3, rules, odds, etc.

Good luck!  Thumbs Up

      The My3 rules are so simple, that there should be no rules. The game practically plays itself, and is guaranteed to be idiot proof.    Jack-in-the-Box

            A little off topic but I am glad that I not the only one that noticed the smaller sizes of products at  higher prices.

            I buy packaged sliced turkey for my cat and I noticed that the packs kept getting thinner and thinner and the

            price was going up.  I made a few calculations and and came to the conclusion that if it continued at the same

            rate then in a year I would be paying $5.00 for just the package the meat came in.   I went to the management

            and showed them my figures and within a month the price was dropped to match the previous price by weight.

            Never hurts to call them at their game.  Greed is killing this country.

             Gotta love this response  @ RL-RANDOMLOGIC

              "I am glad that I'm not the only one that noticed the smaller sizes of products at higher prices" Thumbs UpI Agree!

               This is what is called 'HIDDEN INFLATION".

             

              "Greed is killing this country" ................... and may I add .... it's also killing this WORLD!

             

               Can't try your tactic over here though - 'cause we import practically everything.  Tourists who visit here - when they see the prices we pay at the Grocery Store (eg. $5 -$7.00 for a box of cereal - that keeps getting thinner by the box), they usally ask "How do you guys make it (to eat) over here!   Some simply refuse to pay the high prices because they get these items so much cheaper at home.

               Just wanted to add my comments  on this off topic.

             We all Luv to win ..... at least now 'n again!

              Matt. 22: 21 -  Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's,

                                      but unto the Heavenly Father, the things that are His.

              RL,

              Good for you letting them know you knew about the shrinkage!

              People here on LP are probably the only ones that would get this, but in states like Illinois, where the state no longer runs the lottery but contractd it out, what's not to say things like a game with the same odds, same price (well, one of five prices) didn' come from some former grocery management types who now work for a provate run lottery?

              Just a thought.

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

              Lep

              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.
