    Hi homegirl....

    I voted Little Lotto only because I like the new rollover format and there's usually only one winner.  Nice balance of odds and jackpot.  Also you get your buck back for matching two.  The 3 of 5 and 4 of 5 payouts should be illegal but I'm not playing for those goals....give me the jackpot or give me my buck back.

    Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

      Little Lotto for me, too. I play them all, Little Lotto the most, Pick 4 the least, but when the Little Lotto jackpot is up and I play anyhting else I feel like I should be "throwing that" at Little Lotto, too.

      In a Pick 5 game the odds are still astonomical, but you have a feeling you have better chances of hitting it than any Pick 6 or 5 and (MM, PB).

      There have been times the Little Lotto jackpot has been over $1,000,000.

      I guess it just comes down to when you play a Pick 5 you have a feeling you may actually win!

        Megamillions....I'm not wasting any time playing for a few hundred thousands of dollars.

        I'm going after all the millions of dollars that are out there......and then I'll gamble just for the heck of it!

            I know what you're saying but I don't happen to have a few hundred thousand in my pocket. 

            In the grand scheme of things I'd rather try to hit the "few hundred thousand" and maybe hit it than skip it entirely chasing the Mega Millions and never hit it.

            There hasn't been a Mega Millions winner ( 5 + MM) from Illinois yet that I can think of).  

            Good luck all regardless the chosen game you go after.

              Dancecoin toss :  I understand your sentiment. I already hit the little lotto twice in a 5 month period back in 2000....I owed so much money that I finally spent all of it and today do not have any bills. In fact, I am having a new home built in Huntley, illinois. That's "Sun City".

              In the "megagame"...even if you don't have the "megaball" you still stand a chance of winning 250k. Having said that...let me say that the little lotto has been tough to beat since graduating to a 5/39 matrix. So, in my mind..I go for both the 5 numbers (250k) or if fate should have it...I have the chance of winning Millions. .... I "will" be the first in Illinois to capture the MM . By the way....All Illinois players will be invited to my "MEGABALL" party when that day should arrive. Some exceptions would be the friends that I have made at this site who happen to live in other states. One guest of honor would be my "ole" friend .."four4me".

              Yes, it can happen to anyone....it did "once" ...I mean "twice"....for me.  Now..one giant leap forward and her I am trying for the "big one" and then off for the carribean. Good fortune to all.  Since winning back in 2000..I have taken a early retirement and on to more important things then working for a bunch of unappreciative bozo'z down at the phone company that I had worked for....and their eating their hearts out. I don't miss them at all.  St.Germain.

                  Ah, that would give me an entirely different perspective, too.

                  Good for you! 

                  Had I have known Little Lotto was not always going to br 5 / 30 I would have "pounded" it a lot more....

                    Yeah..I know...but 30 years was enough for me...wanted to try something else with my life...I know it was risky but I'm doing ok for now . Winning has brought changes like finding out who are my friends and who aren't..for one.!!  Also , after 30 years I was able to pay off every bill that was out there and today owe no entity a single dollar. Past 5 years have been better then the 25 before that.

                    When little lotto had a 5/30 matrix...it was easier to pick 3 and 4 out of 5  daily...but , now they made it so tough that i barely get 2 numbers  out of 5( if i'm lucky).So, that answers the question of why I play the megamillions only now. It is still tough and minimum for a 5 of 5 is 250 thousand (250k)  and then if i'm really lucky..I  can win millions...so I said why not....thier both tough games but we're talking millions of bucks are possible. Either way, it is a uphill struggle at this game but I'm game and if "you" want to win ...you got to be game too!!

                    Good luck!  St.Germain
