Lucky For Life Lotto: 7, 9, 17, 19, 21, 27
0 players matched 6 of 6, each receiving $3,000.00 a month for life
13 players matched 5 of 6, each receiving $2,000.00
342 players matched 4 of 6, each receiving $40.00
4,362 players matched 3 of 6, each receiving $3.00

 

Wow, all 6 odd and 7 9 17 19 only two apart, and the same numbers. I would have never picked that combination using a system. It goes against everything a system teaches lol. Yet 13 second place winners, had to be all QP's too.

    Wow! You are right, those would have been picked by me only after 2 or 3 six-packs.

    Just a few questions because I  play only in Florida but I am interested!!  Is the "FOR LIFE" part of the winnings limited to a time like 30 years?  It is not really for as long as you live is it?  Is the amount paid on a annual basis minus the 25% that is usually taken out for taxes?

    Sooo if you won the $3,000.00 prize would the gross amount be about $36,000.00 per year?

    Finally, do you like to play it and are the odds okay?

      there is nothing weird about those numbers, they are just odd numbers..Odd is just like even...Odd is like been left handed while even is been right handed...I don't see the difference....

          Yeah for life, and a million gauranteed. Personally I would never play spread that close, even if it is 2-2-2 But it is easy for some to say they would AFTER seeing them.

             Maybe that should tell you something about the things that systems teach?

              Pennsylvania UNlucky for Life is paid over the player's life. The prize is paid yearly, minus 25% federal withholding. There is NO cash option, which probably explains why the game will be retired in January.

                Yeah stick to QP's lol. Most systems also encourage an even mix of odds and evens. But I have found through all my tracking that very rarely ever does a 2-2-2 come up with 3 odds and 3 evens.

                  which brings me to a question that Ive pondered. If a perpetual payment option (for life) is granted, and the game gets closed (ends/terminates). Does the lottery reserve the right then to only pay out the first 1 million and be done with it? This is strictly in reference to Lucky for Life in PA.

                  Sometimes its reason enough to play games that have *cash* option so as not to get duped if a game ends and one doesnt get all the annuities forecast.

                  ~~Is it true, Is it kind,Is it necessary. ~~~

                    I doubt they would do that, but it might say in the fine print on the website. If they did I am sure there would lawsuits lol.

                    How about this for a weird combination, this really screwed my system that night.
