NEVER AGAIN!!!  My wife had a feeling and I went into the store with 2 bucks in hand, one for 1 QP PB and 1 for the Match 6.  Maaaaaaan the clerk looked at me and said (nicely) "one more dollar, match 6 is 2 dollars."  So reached into the wallet and gave the extra buck.  Hope it pays off.

    You probably ought to research the game you're playing before you buy it.

    But in any case, you do get 3 chances at the jackpot for that two dollars, and you get an awful lot of ways to win.

      Oh, thanx for the info.  Like I said, I had no intention of playing the M6.  I went in the first time and bought 1 PB ticket and my wife looked at it and asked me what was that game.  I said I dunno, I never played it.  So she handed me a dollar, I added another dollar for another PB ticket and thats when I found out the ticket was 2 bucks.

        the games in PA that cost $2 are Match 6 and Mix-n-Match

        the games drawn by computer rather than ball machines... Midday pick3/pick4 and Treasure Hunt.

        I play mostly powerball but I am testing evening p3/p4 cash5 (still only $1) and Powerball with powerplay ($2 but MY choice)

        I don'tlike that trend in PA... Lucky for Life was $2 also. I boycott those games...

        Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

              Regarding the Match 6 game, 3 lines for $2, in Pennsylvania:  In DE it is the same game, but called "Multi-Win" lotto.  Of course also picked by computer and played 3 times a week.  Just wondering if players in other states that have this game...MD also has a version....have noticed how the plays come out on your tickets.  In DE, whether you pick your own numbers for the first line, or get a quick pick for the first line, the 2nd and 3rd lines are picked by the computer.  Seldom do any numbers more than one from the 2nd line match anything in the first line, and the 3rd line may have one that matches either the first line or the 2nd line.  In other words, the random program used to select the plays is not truly random, but programed to limit the number of winners among the 3 lines. On the other hand when I select my own numbers on a PB card for the first block and let the computer quick pick 4 other plays on that card, many times the comuter will repeat my selected numbers in the quick picks.  Has anyone else noticed anything similar to what I have stated regarding the Multiwin or Match 6 type of 3 plays for $2 game?  As far as I know the only difference among the states for these type of games is the amount of numbers used.  DE only uses 35, whereas PA might be in the 40s. I think MDs version is around 39 or so.  They also have the Match 5 with bonus which has a similar selling feature of 3 plays for $2, but is a regular lotto game where one can pick his own numbers on as many lines as he wants and I believe is drawn by machine.

                PA Match6 is 6/49. Drawn by traditional ball machine.

                only P3 mid-day P4 mid-day and Treasure Hunt (mid-day pick5) are computer generated.

                Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

                  the super 7 does this in canada. you do a quick pick for the first line and it picks the other two lines. it is a 2 dollar game and is played only once a week.

                    Research my post months ago called "6 Disturbing Lotto Trends" and you'll have your answer.

                    match6 is really BOTCHED 6.

                    mixnmatch is really FLIP n SWITCH!
