i've read a few things about betslips and and was wondering were both trustworthy enough to play and become a regular with no hassles?

      There have been nothing but good reports about both.

      betslips is advertised on LotteryPost, Lotto-Logix and Lottery.com that is about as solid a recommendation as you can get about an online business.  The links to the left are to betslips.

      is only recommended for the larger then state payouts for the daily number games and does not extend to the casino aspect.  If you can't trust yourself to just play lotto then I'd suggest you ignore them.

      You can find a link to at
      http://www.lotto-logix.com/information.html 

      Use if the ONLY thing keeping you from playing at a profit is the low state payouts.  Bigger prizes don't help if you can't pick the winning numbers.  BobP

        Hey Bob I agree those are good sites, I use them all the time...

        But NOT all State payouts are small, the California State jackpot starts at $7 million and has reached a record $193 million because the jackpot rolls over and grows each time there is no winner...

          We're talking daily number games with 5D, not the big lotto games.
          When one pays 50% and the other 90% it can make a big difference whether you're playing Pick-3 at a profit or not provided you can win at all, no point to bigger prizes if you don't win them.  If your state makes it worse with a computer draw at least you can play somewhere else.  BobP

            I came across ********** and it looks pretty good, you get 20 California Super Lottery Plus tickets for 3 bucks.

            But the site isn't live yet, they have a waiting list for when they launch....I'm gonna try it. I hit the jackpot the first time playing a pool, so you know... 




            Went and looked at the ********** web site.  They buy 20 Quick Picks for 20 players putting in $3.00 each so they take in $60. and apply $20. toward tickets and pocket the rest.  If you win you get 1/20th of the prize.

            Having 25 daily shots at the Florida 5/36 here on Lottery Post and not hitting better then the occasional 4# prize, I can tell you the odds of 20 Quick Picks hitting a California jackpot are virtually zero.  Even if they used the best wheel with 20 lines playing all the numbers they couldn't guarantee a 2# ticket.  I'd look for a club that puts all $60. into tickets and wants to share in the prize by paying in its own $3. share.  BobP

                betslips Choices . . .
                Powerball 5/53 + 1/42
                MegaMillions 5/52 + 1/52
                Florida 6/53
                U.K. Lotto 6/49

                The better game would be the one you can best pick the winning numbers for.  Odds wise the U.K. game, prize wise - which ever one is bigger at the moment. BobP

                  BobP,

                  betslips also offers Euro Millions, NY Lotto, and El Gordo.  Right now Euro Millions is one of the best games to play, hands-down.  If you're looking for the best combination of jackpot + odds, even the $149 Mega Millions jackpot can't come close.

                  That's because Euro Millions will not have any taxes taken out, and the advertised jackpot IS the CASH VALUE, not the annuity like Mega Millions.  Also, the odds of winning the Euro Millions jackpot are 1 in 76 million, compared to MM's odds of 1 in 135 million.  If you won the MM jackpot tonight, you could expect to get about $50-some-odd million after taxes.

                  Plus Euro Millions has a LOT of good lower-tier prizes.  The lowest prize is US$15, and there are 12 different ways to win.

                  The betslips page that has all the Euro Millions information can be found here:

                  http://www.betslips.com/aboutgame.htm

                  Another one to check out is El Gordo.  Only 2 big draws per year, and the next one is coming up at Christmastime.  betslips has the best per-decimas prices I have seen.  There are other sites out there claiming to offer a half-decima, but there is no such thing - don't be scammed.

                  betslips's El Gordo information page is here:

                    I have a question.  If u were to play any of these games on the internet, how would u collect your prize?  Also, when a jackpot is won where would they say the winning ticket is sold?  I wonder how this works.
