Well I can tell you this. I have played for the past 6 1/2 years. Spent well over 60 grand and still havent hit a straight combo! How many numbers is that combo'd----1 million? There are too many strange coincidences. Its too bad that you cant see this 1st hand. The same numbers are constantly repeating here. I could go on, but we will just have to see. In the meantime, tell your friends to sign the petition.

    What is amazing Todd is this----If the sales in Indiana are so low, why are they bragging about record Sales this year. No doubt they have made alot of money.

      If I read their balance sheet right 12 million less in tickets were sold on line in 2003 vs 2002. I assume that this would include pic 3,4,5. However when it comes to scratch offs, I believe they sold 40 million dollars more in 2003 than 2002. So they lost 12million in daily games, yet made 40 million more in scratch offs. I think that is weird. If you have ever played scratch offs here you know what I mean. I lost enough in those the first couple of years and stopped playing them.  A reasonable person would assume that daily games hold a better odds of winning something big versus a scratch off,. I just dont understand this big difference in sales on daily games and scratch offs.

        my big question is.......where is all this money going,somebody in indiana is getting very rich from this.......i say there is missing money somewhere,somebody has their dirty hands in this,the scratch off scam this month alone "opens the door to further questioning" in my opinion where there is smoke there is a fire...

          If this is the case you should be winning not losing as you should be playing those numbers.

          I am sorry for your losing streak. I could say the same thing about my state. missing by one same sets of numbers but different patterns of them. Then new sets and patterns and still missing by one. They don't tell us who wins or how much. Unless the number breaks the bank.

              The Hoosier Lottery website does have its annual report for the years 2002-2003 that can be downloaded and looked it.  It states that overall about half the amount of sales was paid out in winnings each year.  The pick3 and pick4 games are grouped under daily games, so there aren't any figures for just the pick4 games.

                I just go back from visiting the hoosier lottery website also. If you need any information about the games how the are run etc. Stats then by all means contact them. They have an               ask George section and if he selects your question to be On Air you will win some scratch offs.

                The only reference to pick 3, 4, 5 games was back in 2002 and only 10% of totals sales was for them.

                  If you can predict on paper the winning combination on a consistant basis. Then go to play the combinations and never win would appear to me as something wrong.
                  You can not be wrong every time when you play.
                  I notice on the payouts that a lot of winners are combo straight plays. If there are a lot of players who play this way and all the combos are bought then there will be winners.

                    My pick for all states 7826 and 950 the 2876 coincides with the draw history of Indiana's numbers. These came out last night. These picks were for 11/18/04 I honestly think if you work with the last 4 days worth of Indiana's draw history you can get some wins.

                      You would have done good yesterday as one of 5 total winners on the eve pic. There was also 1 winner on midday 3 for a combined total of 6 winners total for the day. I played 2877 last nite----I will add that ticket to my off by one every other day list. There is a difference playing in person and on paper.

                        And you're still playing??? If you must, why don't you just play those same numbers that are constantly repeating?

                        Good luck,

                            Jeff I realize that I am only playing on paper and agree with you playing for real is a different scenario. I think there is definitely something messed up with Indiana's lottery. It would help me understand this better if I knew how many people actually are playing pick 3 and 4 games. I might contact them and see if I can find out anything. Good luck today.

                              i'm pretty sure by now that indiana lottery officials are covering their tracks by now and whatever money they've stolen is well hidden.......
