TN should join Lotto South or Hot Lotto.

          CORRECTION:

          *sigh* I'd go with NY Lotto. MM's odds are a worse turn-off than kissing a girl, and noticing she has a nosehair protruding out at you (that actually happened to my friend btw lol).

          Yea yea CO, I can already hear what you have to say



          CORRECTION:

          After finding out the payback percentages for each game in NY, I'd go with Scratch games only.

                True, NY Lotto's payback percentage is only 40%... worst of all NY games! I'm embarrassed if a visiting relative asks me what good games are there here in NY

                        Quick Draw has a 60% prize payout. In NY, that's better than all games except for Scratch games.

                          20-22 points better than NY Lotto 6/59.

                              I would have to go with pick 3 in DE unless they had a 6 digit lotto like WV (6 out of 25). I like this game and wish I lived closer to the WV line where I could play often. The odds of winning are only about 1 in 175,000. They pay up to 10 winners $25,000 each if there were that many. I don't think they have ever had that problem. They pay $250 for 5 numbers, $10 for 4 numbers and $1 for 3 numbers. I play this game every year when I go to Illinois to visit my mother and I have won several times without anymore than a few draws for game history.  I have mentioned this game to DE state lottery officials everytime I go to view the drawing process, but they keep coming up with "lame" games like their latest vention Multiwin Lotto which is the same game that they call Match 6 in PA. It is nothing more than a lottery instant ticket game as far as I am concerned. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1.6 million to win $50,000 and many of the other odds of winning a decent prize are way more difficult than playing to hit straight at pick 4. From memory I'm thinking the odds of winning a $1,000 prize are about 1 in 23,000. It cost $2 to get 3 chances which would reduce your chances to hit this prize by 3 I suppose (1 in 7500 apprx). One could take the $2 and play two 4 digit numbers a $1 straight to win $5,000 at slightly higher odds but 5 times the money.  Other prize odds for this game make playing pick 3 a much better option.
