To me pick 5 games seems easy some days and other days hard. When i play i can usually get 3 out of 5 or 4 out of 5, but the 5 out of 5 is a stinker to get. I was just wondering when anyone plays pick 5 games do you find it hard or easy to nail any of the numbers of your favorite game?

    Wow, you must be making a living on those kind of hits!  A 4 out of 5 once a week would be all I would need to survive till I hit the 5 out of 5. 

    But I can't seem to put together much more than 2 or 3 of  out of 5 and even then its not too often.

    I haven't played at all this week but had a hunch on these for NY Take 5....

      I only play a few times a week if that but when i do play i usually do pretty good but sometimes it gets difficult. Are those ny numbers for tonight?

        Yes they are for NY.  Take 5 is one that I have learned to only play every now & then as I hit (2 or 3 #'s)  maybe once every 2 months!  But its great to hear that you are doing so good, it always helps to hear good news - keep it up!

          Ohio Rolling Cash5 (5/39) overall odds of winning are 1:9, so buying $10 worth of tickets will most likely win something (a match 2 pays $1).  Winning something every time he spends $10 can make a player thinks it's easy to match 3 for $10 and at worst break even.  The state knows every player want to win something and it's happy to exchange $10 or $1.

            You have to have 14 numbers with 4,and with one other banker out of N-14 Numbers,you can predict a pick5 jackpot with 36% success ratio in 134 tickets.

            The hard part is how to get numbers right,specially for the bankers.

              Like any lotto games, the more time you put in to analysis (as well as reckless abandon of all logic in number selection) and the more numbers you play, I think the better your odds.

              Combine that with luck and intuition and you will have your share of wins. 

              I usually am right on with my forecasts.  The only time I am wrong is when a very unlikely drawing occurs (such as when a given number repeats 3 nights in a row for...example).

              If I had the guts and funds (playing about 100 selections a night) I would have had it long ago.  I have a feeling there are people we don't hear about with those qualities and funds and they do win frequently.

              I am sure the lotto office could confirm that by showing the same persons winning frequently.  I'd like to get ahold of that info.

                If such a person existed, your local retailer would probably have that information.  It would be hard to not notice the same person cashing in winning tickets all the time.  It's unlikely such a person would be going to a different retailer every time he played. 

                It's unusual for more than one winner to be from the same town in one year let alone the same person collecting more than one jackpot even for a pick5 game.

                  Well.  I think that person would be smart enough to bounce around to different lotto retailers in they're region....as to not draw attention to themselves.

                  I don't know how annoying you would become to a single retailer (showing up every day or two to collect hundreds).  Although I don't think they are allowed to...mine would probably ask me if I'd go somewhere else to collect.  I have been told many times to,  at least....come back later because they didnt have the cash available to pay me. 

                   Put two or three of these together each week and you'll be doing well for yourself.

                      I wish i could play that game.(lol)  i would have to see the numbers myself from past results. What's the name of the game? I do wish there was a way to see other lottery games that's not on here. To bad lp couldn't get them on.

                            wow 5/22

                            whats the payout equivelent in that? 

                            Last night 8 people won 5,786 RMB

                            Night before 5 won 22, 502RMB

                            3-15   5 won 18,799RMB

                            3-16   5 won 18,674RMB

                            3-17   2 won 53,117RMB

                            As you can see it's not alot of money but if you live here it's a nice piece of change considering most people here in Kunming make from 500RMB to maybe 3,000RMB a month!!!! I don't know what the dollar to RMB conversion is right now. 5,000 RMB is about 700 Dollars I think. Not sure though.

                              I ask todd when I first signed on to LP but I guess not enough people are interested in seeing our draws here. Since you can't play it anyway.
