NC lottery is thinking about starting a game like powerball. I just want any pick 5 game.

Maybe North Carolina is considering joining MUSL Hot Lotto. Anything but Lose for Life.

    NC would be better off with their own instate game rather than "COLD" lotto.  It lost its flame before it even started!!!!!! 

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

      Yes, HL is now computerized. But HL is still much better than Lose for Life.

        Cash we aren't even talking about Win For Life.  (off topic we were talking about NC which is way off topic from Illinois LOTTO) LOL

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

          Illinois Lotto seems to be a forgotten game. It once had the nation's highest jackpot at $69 million, back in the annuity-only days. This was April 1989. It was broken later in the month by PA Super 7.

            CASH Only, I think people in Illinois don't want their lotto to go to a 5+1 game because they already had Mega Millions. That's why they focus on Mega Millions more than their own lotto.

              Or at least it would be nice to have KENO... It is not everyone's favourite. But it would be nice...

              Well, I like KENO.

              Please don't take this as being flippant.  I sincerely want to know.  What is there about keno that you like?

                Well, for starters it is not in IL. When you do not have something, sometimes you wishe you had it. :))

                But seriously: I like this game. You can decide how many numbers you play. If you play 5 then odds (1:1551 I think) are almost as fun as PICK3 odds but of course you are paid for 4of5, 3of5 too.

                If you are more serious you can play all 10 numbers and it is still fun, because they draw 20 numbers anyway. 

                Depending how many numbers you play you feel like it is completly different game.

                They draw 20 numbers out of 80 (in "standard" edition).

                  Michigan's nightly keno draws 22 numbers. Unless they've changed it.
