Ironcially, I just profited yet again on the match 6 for the eight time now. Only spent $4.00 and won $12.00 Not a lot, but still a profit. Adding up all the profits from all 8 draws, and I believe I about $30-$40 to the good, which is not bad for a jackpot game.

If I am getting this close on only two plays, I can only imagine the potential of playing many more. But then again sometimes I get better luck/skill with only a couple plays as opposed to a 100.

      I would most certainly agree with LottoMike and many others of the kind as to winning a little bit a lot more often as opposed to hardly ever winning anything at all by playing the bigger games which have the much larger prizes. 

      Winning the Pick 4 is relatively EASY when compared to the super jackpot games.  Also, besides the fact that there is a drawing held somewhere almost everyday, I do like getting paid as often as possible.  Yeah, Pick 4, it is indeed the ticket.  Get some...get it good...and get it right now!

        PayMeNow is right. 

        Pick 3 and Pick 4 pay more often and can actually generate a profit.  If you play key numbers, which is the only way to play, Pick 4 is easier because you are calculating the movements of 4 numbers in a matrix of 10 instead of 5 numbers in a matrix of 56, for instance.

        Personally, I play Pick 3 because A. Texas doesn't have Pick 4 and B. If you want to win more with Pick 3 . . .bet more per number.

        No brainer.

            Here's my take on it. My thing is to try to win something. Sure it's a lot easier to win a Pick-3 top prize than it is to win any other top prize. But, your odds of winning anything are, at best, 1 in 100, and that's only if your state has pair options. And I do play the pairs, sometimes. But unless there's something special about Pick 3 or Pick 4, like an Instant Match feature, I'll be sticking to the pairs.

              Have 1 pick 4 number you think is going to hit in the exact position you choose and lay $20.00 on it instate could return me $100,000.00.

              If it hit.

                      "To get rich beyond your wildest dream"

                      Yep, that's why many people only play Power Ball and Mega Millions when the jackpot is over 100 million. And they bet the longshots at the horse and dog tracks even though they "knew" the favorite would win.

                      Why waste your money on the pick 3 and 4 when for a buck we all can take a chance of changing our lives.  Who cares that the odds are 175 million to one?
