Go to the Massachusetts Lottery website and look at their Pick 4. You don't have to hit 4. And I'm not talking front pair / back pair.
The Mass game, IMHO, is a lot of games at the same time. A pick 4, 3, 2, and 1 is a better way to describe it.

I hate Powerball because its way to hard to win. I would rather win smaller amounts more often with the pick 3 or 4.

If my state had the Mass. game instead of the Pick 4 it has I would have got paid something a whole lot of times that I got nothing.

I don't hate, I dislike. I used to dislike the big-4 game until I finally hit it...twice in a few months. You only dislike something though usually because of losing all the time. But a win will change that. I dislike the powerball because it pays crap back for it's lower tier prizes. I dislike LFL because it seems like it should be a lot easier to win than it is, and I dislike the $2.00 price tag.
However I would rather play and take the chance as opposed to stopping and wondering "what if" I had played? So not playing a game that you "hate" is not that easy, many continue to do so anyway. You only "hate" losing regardless of the game. I also do not like scratch offs, as they are pre-determined losers most of the time. Unless I hit "Lifetime Riches" for $100,000 a year for life, I will have a newfound love for them.

1. Any game that is annuity-only. This includes the online game Lose for Life; while it has a cash option in VA, it's for only 10 years' worth of quarterly payments.
2. NY Lotto, the world's biggest ripoff, as the prize pool is only 38%-40% of sales.

Anyone just hate and I mean just can't stand a particular lottery game and wish the game would just go away? Feel free to vent your reasons as to why.
Have you been paying attention to the posts on here? Half of them are a certain someone bashing NY Lotto, PA Lucky for Life, MA Megabucks, etc.
I've redone my website. Go to www.dr-ew.com. I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff. Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

I don't hate any game Texas offers now. I used to hate the Texas Lotto when it had the bonus ball, but like the 6-54 game. My favorite game is Pick 3 because I can actually win it. I do hate the Pick 3 odds ratio at 500 to 1 when offshore casinos offer up to 900 to 1. I realize the state doesn't offer lottery games for the entertainment and profit of the public, but I would like to see them give the average player a break once in awhile. The Frist debacle will bite the GOP in the future. Hate to see the Demos benefit, but that is the name of the game. This year my vote goes to Kinky!

yep i agree.banning something that affects the livelihood of an estimated 22 million people who play online might just come back to haunt them.a survey showed most of those people who were banned were regular voters for the republican party and if you do a search on the net you'll find a lot of disgruntled people who are switching sides.i'm not going to post any links but i will bet the farm you won't have any trouble finding it doing a google search.

Illinois's regular lotto is a 6/52 but if you are not winning the jackpot
the games payouts are terrible. I just dont understand the big gap
in the 1st place prize and the 2nd place prize. Since the lottery makes
billions every year (at least in Illinois) when are they ever going to put
some more money back into the games. The lottery is nothing without
the players but it seems we get the short end of the stick with the payouts.
Sometimes I wonder if there was a nation wide boycott if we would be able
to get some say so. 2nd and 3rd place prizes should be increased, the money is
there and ticket sales would also increase with more people feeling more confident

I voted for Pick 4. Extremely hard to win anything at. At least with Powerball you have a biting chance of getting some of your money back, even if the top prize is impossible.
And what's with all the hating on scratch-offs? They're the best of all. They have the best odds, and have the highest payout percentages.
Scratch-offs have the best odds of hitting something (usually a buck or two), but are the very worst in odds-to-payout ratio.
Posted 4/6: IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit: 555, 347 (str8).

Missouri's Showme5 game has 44 balls. If you happen to beat the odds and get all 5 numbers right out of the 44, the max you can get is $50,000. That's just wrong! That is taxes paid and the lower tiered prizes are good, but it should have a higher jackpot than that. The lower tiered prizes are lowered substantially if the jackpot is hit. For instance, 4 out of 5 on this games gets you $750. But if the jackpot is hit, the lower tiered prize becomes $250 for 4 of 5. I believe MO is the only Pick 5 game that has 44 balls. That is not a trend you hope your state follows, trust me...Heck, our regular state lotto only has 44 balls. As far as I know, the Showme5 jackpot is not hit very often, but it is hard to tell with the fixed prizes. I put a dollar on this game about once every 6 months. It was fun to play when we had a 30 ball matrix...
Well, I've had my for the day.
Best of Luck,

IL Little Lotto -- it's not worth it....if you get 4 out of 5 numbers you only get $100. I'd do better to play the 3 or 4 digit with that kind of payout. It's ridiculous. It was better when they had the pari-mutual payout for 4 numbers, at least that was a decent payout.
