    the max lotto up there is $5 for 3 lines, and i think they have to be quick picks.

    yeah the 2nd and 3rd line are QPs

    on the previous game, Super 7, you were able to pick all 3 lines

      Unless you are increasing the payback percentage it is all just smoke and mirrors.

      The lottery makes you believe that your odds are going down to 6.6 but they dont tell you that the cash prize

      odds are decreasing drastically. They want to churn your free plays over and over again. I sure do not play

      the lottery for the free quick pick ticket. I would prefer just putting that prize pool to increase the money won

      from hitting 4 or 5 of six. But that will never happen as the lottery know that pyschologically if you win a free

      pick you feel better than you did if you lost and that free pick is churned back in. Lets say you are playing a lottery

      and you win a buck. You ALWAYS put that buck into play on top of your new purchase.

      I give kudos to Canada for not having to pay taxes on the winning but they offer sub 50% payback percentages. 

      To the previous poster about Illinois. I agree. They add all these crappy bells and whistles that no one plays.

      And now their jackpot increases about 150k per turn. Unless a super positive change in payback percentages

      happen , which it never will with so many munis hurting for cash then I believe one should only play the lottery

      on huge rollover. Say when Pick 5 lottery is above 500k or when your state lottery that has 12 mil to 1 odds is offering

      a prize of 24+ million (annuity which equals 12mil cash). Instead of playing every day save your money when

      you are giving yourself the best chance of hitting the bigger jackpots.

            Wow really! $1 million is guaranteed to be won every draw. This is quite interesting. I don't mind spending additional dollar if it will give me higher chances of winning!
