I just can't figure out why NO other poster lists their particular state's "jackpot" game here...

SUCH an obsession with a really lousy lottery game, "brought to you by the people who love to rip you off!"

For the record, no need to contact the PA lottery bec. they read my posts here every day.

 

"Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they aren't following me!"

:-)

There have been many times when I mentioned Hot Lotto in this forum. OK, it's not a single-state game (nine states and DC), but the jackpot odds are in line with one-state games.

I also recently mentioned the about-to-expire Connecticut ticket, which I'm sure nobody claimed by last night.

      I agree that you may well have a sense of paranoia but I assure you I am not a follower of  what you are so kindly Puttin *down* in  commentary.

      California has a state lottery game (superlotto) . Imagine that another state!Do a search here and see that it was discussed in the Jackpot forum... Same for Ohio's game....

      Next time you get to win a million dollars or more off a two dollar ticket, feel free to come back here and tell us how that state lottery ripped you off.

      When the shoe is on the other foot or even the right foot its amazing how good it can make a person stand :)

      First off, that "quote" is not mine but a famous one; I guess no one recognized it as such.  It is tongue in cheek.  I'm not paranoid but I was trained at my Jesuit school to have a healthy suspicion and not blindly nor passively "accept" authority or that which passes as truth on the face of it simply because it is stated as such.

      Any look at the current Administration and its shenanigans that have resulted in the loss of over 3000 valuable human beings will prove that point easily.

      So my point remains the same: I will always challenge others on their agenda when part or all of it is unfounded in fact, or comprised of half-truths and/or distortions.  I owe that to myself and I owe that to the LP readership here.

      I do NOT accept nor approve of a corrupt (unjust) system that doubles the price of a lottery ticket AND AT THE SAME TIME REDUCES lower tiered prizes!

      I do NOT accept (nor approve of) a corrupt system that makes the million dollar jackpot grow much more slowly than before where others' 6/49 games remain much more fair.

      And if I DO win a million dollars or more off a two dollar ticket, it will be because I used number selection strategies-- please, there will be NO need for me to express gratitude to the PA lotto execs (if I do play this game one day AND win).

      "QUESTION AUTHORITY!"

          greg, I have to agree with you. I believe the "jackpot" games are only powerball and mega millions. canada has the super 7 and some others, but here in the good ol' US I only consider the above two as jackpots. Call me ignorant if you want to, but I see exactly what you are getting at about this forum.

          You know- and I know- when you get close to the truth people have a fit. Why? To keep you from the truth of course. Dont you let these people bother you. They kick newbies and others with something substantial to say in the teeth all the time here.   What's that old saying? "Anything worth having is worth fighting for." Keep that in mind. Because here is where you have to fight. A battle of words, principles, morals, etc... If they can keep you down... they will.

            Game payout percentage in PA Match 6 with minimum $500,000 jackpot is 45.51% when second tier payouts are considered. Each $500,000 increase in the rollover jackpot raises the game payout percentage by 5.36%.

                    Well finally had a decent payback. I matched 8 of 18 on one ticket, 7 of 18 three times on another ticket, and had a few 3 of 6 on the other. I spent $40 and won back about $100. Not too bad, more money for next week is about all it amounts to. Smile

                      Greg. you have spoken your opinion and seem to think it to be the ONLY truth there is.

                      Can you research by county and district , race, religion, pay scale, Just who is getting ripped off?  Please keep it factual and statistical.

                      Seems to me that as a Free will adult playing a game of choice, no one is getting ripped off. But then again, I'm one of those silly beleivers that thinks ADULTS can pretty much make good choices or less pleasing choices at will.... with their own money.

                      May I have the regulation that tells of the minimum amount or value necessary before a term such as JACKPOT can be used? Apparently my meds arent as kickin , because I just dont recall that a jackpot had a minimum value before it can be used as a word in the english lanuage....Is it 12 million, 50 million?

                        Lay in a course for Pennsylvania!!!

                        The only thing on MATCH 6 that puzzles me is that you can match 10 numbers in a 6 number drawing. That means that either some tickets cannot win that way OR the QP generator deliberately repeats some of the numbers to make sure a match of 10 is possible. The 2nd and 3rd line are not extra plays for 66 cents each as those do not count for the jackpot but only for lower prizes. It is NOT like the old Super 6 game where all 3 lines were separate games. The MATCH 6 costs $2 (not 66 cents) per each chance at the JACKPOT. The other problem is the new game mix&match sounds like MATCH 6 so people will sometimes mix&confuse the two.

                        With the high jackpot I'll probably go for one of them and a mixmatch but Powerball  is 105M and that's where my attention would be over there.

                        For better or worse, the Jackpot Games term is meant for the kind of game that is drawn from one mixing chamber (and possibly a bonus ball in a 2nd chamber) with a top prize level, where the numbers have a wide range, vs. Pick-3 or Pick-4 games where there is not a jackpot level and each digit individually drawn. Fretting about the real meaning of "jackpot games" is like trying to figure if the spork should go in with the spoons or the forks. For the sake of keeing things organized they keep it to a few categories. It is also for the sake of systems discussions because any "jackpot game" system can be potentially adapted to any other. A good MATCH 6 system might also help with Powerball, etc.

                          Will do!

                          NJ 6/49 Game ($1.00 per ticket)

                          3/1/07:

                          6/6: $9,000,000

                          5/6: $2,149.

                          4/6  $47.

                          3/6  $3.

                          PA Match [BOTCHED] 6/49: ($2.00 per ticket)

                          5/6: $1,000.

                          4/6: $20.

                          3/6: $2.

                          And you think no one is getting ripped off?  Look again!

                          I respect players' "free choice" but I do NOT respect REDUCED choice.  The PA lotto execs DOUBLED the price of PA Pick 6 tickets WHILE AT THE SAME TIME REDUCED tiered prizes.  Shame on them.

                          TRUTH Illumines the darkness.

                            "deliberately repeats some of the numbers to make sure a match of 10 is possible."

                            This what I actually always believed. For the record, the match 6 is now the highest it has ever been, $6,000,000! As I said in the MM's thread, there seems to be a trend of record jackpots coming back again...coincidence? I wonder if the PB will follow suit? Seems to be right on track. I usually hate when numbers repeat, but I was glad when they did this week when I won. However very rarely do I ever win with more than 5 of 18. Lower tier prizes do not interest me at all, they only lower the cost of playing.
