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

i wish tennessee had a 5/35 also....they don't realize that they lose players when they raise the matrix.....

    I agree, Mike. But in the short term, I'd like to see TN follow GA's lead and change the payout scale so that 4/5 pays around $400 (plus or minus a few dollars);   3/5 pays around $18 (plus or minus a few dollars); and 2/5 wins a free QP. I've had a few GA F5 free QPs that have matched 3/5 in the next drawing.

    I think that changing the Lotto 5 payout scale would boost ticket sales.

    Given the choice between playing GA Fantasty 5 and TN Lotto 5, I'll choose GA Fantasy 5 because I have a chance of winning a bit more - even if it's just a free QP.

      It took a new lottery dirctor, Ms. DeFrancisco to bring about those changes.  She has listened, she has brought about constructive changes which have increased ticket sales because players seem much happier since her arrival.  Blue Angel

      Before her the Georgia Lottery was absolutely inflexible and totally deaf to player input since its inception. 

      Good luck to everyone!

          I'm over here in CT...We have cash 5...it's ok use to be called Cash lotto I think..

          It's 100,000 bucks doesnt' go up or down...no rollover. If 2 people hit they both get 100,000....if more then 2 or 3 hit It's divided down depending on the sales they had. Limitation due to liability.

          I have never played any other state but, I would love to be able to play other states like all the ones mentioned in the thread.

          A lot of people tell me cash 5 is easy got get 3 or 4 numbers. I have had 2 friends...well there parents hit 100,000 in one year. So it might be easy or just pure luck...Easyluck...LOL

              My paper system hit 5 out of 5 on Friday's mid-day draw.  Unfortunately,  I've only purchased tickets for one drawing last week, the result of which matched just 2.  I've been working on the system on paper for about a month in addition to the purchases.

                    I matched 4 once and matched 3 twice out of 10 lines in the mid-day draw.

                    My system seems to work best early in the week so I've concentrated my

                    buys at that time. What I've noticed is that numbers tend to repeat during

                    the week, but on the rollover to a new week repeats tend not to occur.

                    Since I have to build a list of candidate numbers for selection in the draw,

                    it seems to work best that I refrain from buying lotto tickets when I have

                    too few candidates  (i.e., the probabilities favor that I'll have more misses).

                      I picked 20 combos using 25 numbers which had all 5 winning numbers, but the best I did was 3of5 as shown in my post for Ohio RC5 of 1/28 and on the prediction board.  Rolling Cash5 rolled and the jackpot is even bigger today so I'm giving it another try today.  Good luck to you.

                        I have 12 numbers left as likely to hit (1, 4, 8, 10, 12, 19, 20, 22, 23, 25,

                        28, and 30). If I was going to play the next draw, I would stack the lines

                        such that all of the numbers in the 20s would be represented. Each line

                        would have at least 2 or 3 numbers on the list ranging from 19 to 28.

                            If you're always going to bet the same group of numbers, you should include 3, 5, 11, 22, 26, and 27.  Those numbers occur the most frequently.  My list changes nightly but I always include lines that include numbers that have high historical frequencies.

                              I hit 5 today with 6-10-15-23-33.  It looks like I have to travel down to Woodbridge which is a long haul from home, especially with the mess that's called the Springfield mixing bowl.

                              I've only been playing in Cash 5 for two months and journalling the selections for the better part of six weeks.  I won't know till mid-year whether this strategy appears to be viable.
