I'm going to go off on a rant here because i was born and raised in Illinois. I come from a long line of lucky gamblers. My father taught me how to play craps, my mother taught me how to play cards, and my grandmother got me started with the lottery when i was very young. 

 I used to play anywhere from 20-30 bucks a week depending on if i won. I used win all the time on pick 3, and scratchers. 

Two years ago I moved to the hoosier state to start school at Purdue. I tried all the different games indiana has to offer. 

Pull Tabs = useless

Scratch Tickets= Never ever hit in this area (only small prizes 2$-10$)

lotto, daily 3, 4 and lucky 5 never hit and i'm suspicious of their computer generated results.

The only game i can play out here is powerball. Damn i miss Illinois lottery.

    A lot of other people feel the same.

     

    Check the State Lottery Report Card
    What grade did your lottery earn?

      It's not like it's traveling across the U.S. to go from Lafayette to the Illinois line, uinless you're insisting on playing in one of the "home of Winners" - a Chicago area White Hen Pantry. But now they're 7-11's, or soon going to be. 

      Think advanced play.

      Personally, I haven't fared a whole lot better in Illinois but I'm only a $2 - $3 a day player. 

      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.

        Hey Coin Toss, that's not a bad idea (advance play).  Years ago it would be more difficult, because you'd have to track down the results, but with something like Lottery Post tying all the states together in one place, it's much easier and better.  Plus, just about every state has mail-in claims forms, so you don't need to travel back to the state.
