Ah, Pick 3, then Pick 4, then scratchers.
The odds against a pick 3 are 999:1
Against a Pick 4, 9999:1
Against most scrsatchers, chances are 1 in 4 to 6 of winning something - which includes a freee ticket, actually a push), naturally the odds are much higher for big prized
"Little Lotto", Pick 5, etc...for example Illinois Little Lotto, which is a 5 / 39 game, the odds of hitting the jackpot are 575,757:1
When you get into the pick 6 games those odds jump into the millions, Powerball and Mega Millions in to the hundreds of millions.
But if you're talking about going for the 5 of 6 prizes I'd have to say Powerball or Mega Millions, not that the odds are any bargain, but in the state l.otteries the 5 o6 prize is usually an insult, somehwere between $900 and $1500. The one number that doesn;t come in for you is worth a fortune, literally.
