I usually check the IL website winners page to see how many people won and where the tickets were sold.  They also note how many subscription winners there were. 

For those not familiar with subscription playing, you can send the lottery a check for 3, 6, or 12 months play on your picks.  Smaller prizes are accumulated during that period and you receive a check at the end of it.  4 of 5 and jackpots are paid right away.

I have never seen a subscription winner win the jackpot.  Last night one did for $290,000.  Guess what?  It was a quick pick!  I find it unusual that someone would purchase tickets for that length of time and get quick picks, don't you?  What if they were lousy quick picks?  You're stuck with them.

If you play quick picks maybe it's a good idea to play the same ones for awhile???

    NY briefly had a subscription for Take Five, which I had but only won free plays. I got a partial refund since the game expanded to four nights a week before my plan ran out.

    NY needs to allow subscription play for Mega Millions-the only game you can play for a year at a time in NY has a 38%-40% payout, worst in the country, if not the world.

      I didn't even know you could do that with a subscription ticket.

      So much for the theory that when you play a subscription ticket,, or even a multi-draw ticket, you're 'programming' the lotto for what numbers not to be drawn!

        When they start programming our numbers not to be drawn, they'll lose a whole lot of business won't they?

        So far, IL seems to take their lottery players seriously.  Glad I live and play here and can concentrate my conspiracy theories elsewhere.
