    If you are a believer in patterns, be advised that the balls have been replaced in Florida Lotto Pick 3 and Pick 4 as of August 01, 2016. Let us see how the next two years go. BTW: Fl Lotto and Fl Fantasy 5 games have a lot of 18 machines that they rotate. Does anyone have any idea the actual number of machines for P3 and P4? I'm guessing the same of 18, at least that is the rotation that I have noticed. Best of Luck.

      I did a cursory overview of Pick 5 game in Pennsylvania over a two year period and no quintuplets (11111, 22222....) have been drawn. If I were to wager a minimum $20 on both midday & eveming draws for any quintuplets to hit I'd lost $7,560. Could I sustain a projected future hit say within a 3-5 year period that a quintuplet will eventually hit?

      Zero quints have been drawn in PA. Odds of a quint is 1 in 10,000. There have only been ~5,800 drawings to date. So if one played $20 everyday (to cover all the quints) on PA Pick-5 (formerly Quinto) began, nearly 8 years ago, in late Aug-2008, they would have already wagered in ~5,800 drawings and lost ~$58,000.

        Florida I hope you don't have to wait as long for your Quintuplet. Per Ron's example, it can run into lots of
        money. Almost 8 years is awfully long. Double doubles would be a better route. gl

          The lottery (a game chance) itself isn't rigged it's the people operating it who may have ulterior motives or agendas to rig it. In many cases, it's the very people entrusted to protect it's a from the handful of articles I've read recently over the span of a few years. I've always wondered myself who are those multi jackpot winners? Lo-n-behold the Lottery officials themselves. Please! Don't take my opinions as vindicative of the lottery as a business enterprise; but, simply as an observation.

            Interesting! Would the FLA lottery set up a draw to feature a quintuplet (44444, 00000, e.t.c.) hit within a year or so? Or would FLA Lottery follow the trend of other Pick 5 games like the PA Pick 5 in which no quintuplets have hit to date? Maybe a better strategy is to play the way the lotto structures it's game to play. Do more singles, doubles, e.t.c. have a better win percentage?

              Gotta say Florida needs to either get new machines that mix the balls or new balls in the machines. Too many times the afternoon and evening numbers in the pick 3 were very close and now you have the pick 2. Just look at yesterday 8/14/16, the pick 3 numbers for both draws was 440 and 441, now with the new pick 2 both draws were exactly the same 95 and 95. I have been noticing very close numbers in the pick 3 in the past but this is too much of a coincidence.
