Two questions really.  Which Pick5 game in the US has the best odds and payout structure and also, does anyone know where we can play Pick5 games online.  I know you can play the big lotteries and pick3 and pick4 online at betslips, but I can't find a place to play pick5.  Thanks.

    IMO Florida Fantasy 5 is the best.  They have only 36 numbers (California and many others are 39 numbers) and getting 4 correct can pay out big time.  If nobody hits 5 correct, then the jackpot rolls DOWN and is split among all those that had 4 correct.  Payouts of over $700 for 4 correct are common.  Last night for instance:

     

    5-of-5
    0
    $0.00
    4-of-5
    301
    $897.00
    3-of-5
    9,430
    $11.00
    2-of-5
    93,045
    Free Ticket

     

     

    Almost $900 for only 4 correct!

    I don't know of anywhere that you can play Pick 5 online.

      Minnesota's Northstar Cash and Wisconsin's Badger 5 are both 31 choose 5 games.

        The lowest pick-5 matrix in the United States is PA's Treasure Hunt, which has only 30 numbers. But for an even lower matrix, head down to Mexico for their 28-number Chispazo.

          NY has 39 numbers, but pays better for the 3 of 5, it averages $18-$23 bucks.  NY also often pays in the $700-800 for 4 of 5 when no one gets all 5. But with fewer balls in CA the odds are better to hit ....

          Money won is twice as good as money earned!
