Back on Oct. 29th, they changed the payouts, secretly, to put more back in the jackpot, unfortunately. Now matching 4 averages $200 (down from $400) , and matching 3 averages $9 (down from $20). Shame on you Georgia, you had a good thing going and ruined it.

          The way to get the Lottery Commisions attention is to not play that pick-5 game. Once you hit them with the lack of sales , they will make a change. I'd also call or e-mail them and voice an oppinion on what they have done. Enough people complain things get changed.

            You are absolutely correct, unfortunately there are just too many people who will play regardless.  

            There have actually been discusions here about how large would a matrix be before you stopped playing and people have said, "That will never happen."  And if the lotteries have people reading this board, which a lot of us think to be the case, such reactions are not helping we, the players, one bit.

            Changing the payout structure gets the same reaction, too.

            Very much like when there's a strike by the players in one of the professional sports leagues and the fans are saying they've had it. Funny how when the strike is over the stadiums fill up.

            "Georgia lottery, I let them know what I thought about the Pick 5 game."

            "Well, where are you going now?"

            "To get my tickets in, I can't give up pn these numbers now."

            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

            Lep

            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                Okay I did not even realize that had happened!!  That's so not cool.  I know with NY if you get 4 out of 5 numbers you can get at a decent prize.  But I think part of the issue is people usually hold out and play Mega Millions, and they figured folks would not notice.  They were right, because i sure did not, and still play the game.

                  I had noticed the lower payouts, but didn't know what happened.  Thanks for the heads up.
