Jersey has a decent pick 5 game - although it is 40 numbers. When the (rolling) jackpot gets high enough, I sometimes head over and p/u a few tickets. The most I have won is 3/5 ($10) however.
The NY pick 5 game blows (gee big surprise) - no rolling jackpots. I have seen as many as 7 or 8 first prize winners for that game. Imagine finally nailing the big won and all you get is $5k (after taxes)
I have been calling for NY Take Five to be changed to a jackpot game. The NY Lottery doesn't seem to want player input. AFAIK game changes have to go through the state legislature. I wonder what Eliot Spitzer thinks of the lottery, as he'll be our next governor (Not so Faso, John )
