    We had 5/30 in IL some time ago (like before March 2002), but now it is 5/39...

    I do not remember the jackpot amount though...

    Anyway, 5/30 sounds nice. I would play it.

    The jackpot was a constant $200,000 and the prizes for 3 and 4 out of 5 varied. There was no payoff for 2 out of 5.

    The odds on a 5 / 30 game against hitting 5 for 5 are somewhere in the 40:000 : 1 range.

    Add 9 numbers and for a 5 / 39 game they are 575, 757 : 1. 

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

    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.

      Actually, the odds for a 5/30 game are:

      5 of 5  1 in 142,506

      4 of 5  1 in 1,140

      3 of 5  1 in 47.5

      2 of 5  1 in 6.20

      1 of 5  1 2.25
