            What is strange is that the MAtch 6 and the Cash five are primarily neck in neck for cash payout, yet the odds are better for Cash5. :)

            With all these doubles spewing up on the pick3 and pick 4, I think they'll hit on the cash 5 too! Thats my little tidbit of useless information for tomorrows play!. Good luck to each person who plays here in the keystone state!

              Yea I just noticed how high it has gotten. Only problem is that if you hit it, perhaps several others will as well, thus making the pay out nowhere near 1 million. But I may play a few regardless. Knowing my luck though there would be 20 other winners.

                404 players matched 4 for $299.50 each. Wow! Would be nice to see the cash 5 go up to a few million, but I doubt it will happen, because the more people that catch wind of it, the more will play, and most likely one will win at least. I never play the cash 5 much, as I only play major jackpot games of a million or more.

                Such a low amount would only make my conditions less desirable at my age. But I do know a lot of seniors around here play it! That would be very unexpected for me to get my million via the cash 5, but I 'll take it! One ball less than lucky for life is indeed great odds! Also I will not be stopping my play of lucky for life anytime soon. You should not go around enforcing your own biased opinion on others not to play it either. For some the pay out of LFL is more than enough, and we already have our cash options elsewhere. Cash options WORTH taking.

                  One winner, if you can believe it. They won $1,118,839 on 5/39. Only in Pennsylvania (or Illinois).

                      I could see a $1 million Cash 5 winner in New Jersey, whose game is 5/40. Think of the million-dollar winners that NY could generate if Take Five were changed to a jackpot game.

                        I just noticed that also.  $1.1 million for odds of 1 in 575757.  That is a good return?

                        Did it ever get that high before in PA.  Michigan has the same game 5/39 and our highest was around $800,000.  But 1.1 million and only one winner.  WOW.

                          It happened only once before some time in the 90's. It was for about the same amount.

                            Take Five would never break $500,000 as a jackpot game. It has too many players, too many winners, and the portion that goes to the jackpot is rather low. But a Jackpot Take Five would still be a good idea. I could see a few $200,000 winners thrown around here and there, something the current format could never generate.
