      Ohio 5/39 with a jackpot that starts at $100,000 and keeps rolling daily until there is a winner.

        I really like PICK 5 games.  They are drawn often and the Jackpots are almost winable.  As far as best Pick 5..... Take your pick... 

        TN-Because JP usually go pretty high and have been known to hit $1 Million

        FL-Because if there is no top prize winner that money is rolled down to the 4/5. (AND 2/5 PRIZE)

        VA-Because the odds are better.  (Plus $.25,$.50,and$1 plays.  As well as midday drawings)

        GA-Because of the higher 3/5 and 4/5 prizes and the 2/5 prize.

        How are you going to win if you don't play?

          PA is good. FL is good. TX is good. VA is good. MD is good.

            Of the Pick 5 games that I've played - Florida Fanatsy 5, Georgia Fantasy 5, Tennessee Lotto 5, and Indiana Lucky 5 - I would say Florida Fantasy 5 because it's a 5/36 matrix, it's ball drawn, the jackpot starts at $100k, and, as TNplaya mentioned, if there is no top prize winner the money is rolled down to the 4/5 prize.

            From what I've read on Lottery Post, VA probably has the best pick 5 game, but I've never played it, so I can't say for sure.

              The jackpot starts at $100,000?  That's awesome!!!  What's the highest the jackpot has gotten before it finally hit?

                    VA could use another pick-5 or a pick-6 that has a rolling jackpot. I'd like to see a new game that would start at 250K or higher. I really like the ability to bet quarters and half-dollars since I can use the larger wheels (i've hit 4-out-of-5 on 3 of the 9 drawings so far this week and 3-out-of-5 almost every time). The other great thing is they draw twice daily so that I could test my strategies in real-time over the past several months and keep a running evaluation of how to adapt the strategy.

                        maryland bonus match 5 because it's tax free if you win the top prize.

                        Illinois lil lotto because of the big jackpots when the games roll over.

                          Gerogia's Fantasy 5 would be at the top of my list if it went back to 5/35 like it originated.  Sun Smiley

                          I don't spend near as much $$$$$$$$$$$$ playing our 5/39 as I did the original 5/35 Fantasy 5 because it's noooooot as much fun to play.  I go weeks without spending a dollar for a play even though payouts have changed.

                          Virginia and Florida are getting accoladed because of lower matrices...... perhaps Georgia could take the hint .......  it's the matrix which makes the game fun to play or not.  Hello .......!!!!!!!  Sleep

                          Good luck to everyone!
