Lotto Relative Percentage is the "number of odds a game has divided by the payout for that particular tier (i don't know what's is called, i just chose to call it that way)...Example..if a 5of 5 for a pick5 has odds of 376,992 and that payout pays 25,000 then the Relative Lotto Percentage is 15.07% (376,992 : 25K= 15.07%)...

I think that the Lotto Relative percentage is what we need to look at to see if a game is harder or easier compared to another game, or to see which game is easier...

One thing you should know is that "the LOWER the lotto relative percentage IS the better"; the higher the lotto relative percentage is the worse..."

Here are Example of lotto relative percentage of TX, MA, OK, IL & NE Pick5's....
OKahoma's Pick5:
5of 5= 25,000 dollars: odds= 376,992      division(percentage)= 15.1%
4of 5= 500 dollars: odds= 2,432.2          division(percentage)= 4.87%
3of 5= 10 dollars:....odds= 81.1            division(percentage)= 8.11%
2of 5= a free ticket:...Odds= 8.4            division(percentage)= 8.4%
Massachussetts's Pick5:
5of 5=324,632 odds             percentage=3.24% (a sample, the only one i could find, was taken to represent the average)
4of 5=2,164.21 odds            percentage=8.66%
3of 5=74.63  odds              percentage=7.5%
Tx's Pick5:
5of 5=435,897 odds             percentage=12.10%
4of 5=2,724     odds             percentage= 6.4%
3of 5=88        odds             percentage= 8.8%
2of 5=9         odds             percentage=4.5%
Illinois's Pick5:
5of 5=575,757 odds           percentage=5.7%
4of 5=3,387     odds           percentage=33.9%
3of 5=103       odds           percentage=10.3%
2of 5=10        odds           percentage=10%
5of 5=501,942 odds          percentage=3.74%
4of 5=3,042    odds          percentage=6.76%
3of 5=95        odds          percentage=10.55%
2of 5=9          odds          percentage=9%
These are Pick6's, so you can compare them with pick5 and see the difference....Here is Lotto Relative Percentage of Tx's Lotto & Ca's Superlotto Plus....
Texas's Lotto:
6of 6=25,827,165  odds      percentage=13% (Here i divided it by 2 Million because i saw the jackpot normally increases by                                                 2 million but I don't know what's the starting jackpot, the website does not say)
5of 6=896,678      odds      percentage=434%  (there is no typo)
4of 6=1,526        odds      percentage=30%
3of 6=75            odds      percentage=25%
California's SuperLottoPlus:
5of 5 + MB=41,416,353  odds            percentage=5.2%
5of 5 + 0  =1,592,937     odds            percentage=159%       (the last time i checked that particular payout normally was 10K)
4of 5 + MB=197,221      odds            percentage=130%
4of 5 + 0 = 7,585          odds            percentage=80%
3of 5 + MB=4,810        odds            percentage=80%
3of 5 + 0 =185            odds            percentage=18%
2of 5 + MB=361           odds            percentage=33%
1of 5 + MB=74            odds            percentage=37%
0of 5 + MB=49            odds           percentage=49%

Maybe when you win 10 trillion dollars you can conduct a research study to find out why people make mistakes.....LOL
