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.

In usual Pick5 Lottery,when you pick up six last digital numbers from 0 to 9,and can still covers all drawn last digits,the chance to get 4 wining numbers in three 14 numbers is 80%.The chance of the other winning numbers coming out of 8 numbers is 80%.

So by playing 143*24=3000 abount tickets,the chance of a jackpot success is 24%.That means you at least need

15000 dollars to play for 5 rounds before the very possibel pick5 jackpot could be predicted,and every time you have 

to have all 6 last digital numbers covering drawn ones.

So the ultimate chance of success jackpot is 10% to 14.4%

    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.

    one doesnt neccesarily have to go around to play or collect winnings in lotto...if you happened to win multiple times its all luck...i got three 4/5 in cash 5 in january and cashed em at the same store i go every time...so what if they noticed me winning often during that week...its a random game and i got very lucky during that period...maybe what you really trying to say here is go around so they dont notice you lose so often....+ no one will regularly win in lotto games...just brief lucky streaks thats all...in response to main topic "pick 5 games easy or not" i can say this:

    pa cash 5 before was 5/39 and was easy(2/5 at least)..now by them adding just 4 balls (now 5/43) it feels like its ten times harder..i hate changes in matrix

      i know what you mean about the pa cash 5, seems to me when i play it it's alot harder than what is was. of course i guess they got what they wanted more profit. next thing you know they will be making the cash 5 game like powerball and mega millions (lol)

      Good luck on the pa cash 5 by the way!

        DownandDirty,

        I don't know about the other states.  But if you go on Florida's lotto website under "Downloads", you can see a list of all the winners since 1980's.

          Claims over $5000 must be made at a regional office and you need a photo ID and SS number so even if you bounce all over the state, the lottery will know who you are.

            I had a feeling that I might need to clarify my statements.

            If you read the thread up to that point "my" interpretation of the discussion had turned to winning a volume of 4 of 5 wins (2nd place).  If you read the posts by Hans and Jackpot they mention odds and attemtps to win "4 of 5" prizes as being part of the plan.

            This was my mindset about having to go to different stores to collect frequent (say $300-$500) prizes. Just think what two or three of those would do for your weekly income?(and it's tax free cash!).

            Yes, I do think that there are those who have programs and funds....who expect...and...do win these types of winnings. Even with limited budget of funds, I expect to win a small prize at least every night.

            And guys.....(with friendly, light fun, discussion intentions only) try to not be so authoritative when you make these "none of you will ever win and have no chance..so stop trying...it's all luck" statements.

            I know it's not your intention..but it's a bit discouraging. Let people believe and have confidence in anything they want to.  Know what I mean?

              Excellent Posts.  I have been wanting to say this but I couldn't find a way to say as illustrious as you have.

                    The p5 games I have run through my works-in-progress show hot/cold streaks. P5 also shows a sensitive dependence to initial conditions i.e. small changes in the intputs create a large change in the outputs.

                      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?

                      I think it depends on the pick 5 game. Some are going to be harder then others because they have more numbers.

                        I dont' think it's easy at all if you're talking about hitting the jackpot. No way! Picking 2 or 3 numbers is somewhat easier but no way it's easy. Of course as ThatScaryChick said, the more numbers the harder it gets. If I had to choose between playing Pick 5 or Mega it would be Pick 5 hands down. Mega only tears what spirit you have left after playing for so long and almost never winning 3 numbers.

                        Play to win!

                          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....

                          2 15 20 34 38

                          You're so right about that as I have only gotten 4  out of 5 once........it's almost unbelievable that someone can do that.

                            Pick 5 is the game I play everyday, $1 or $2 a drawing- I've occassionally hit 2/5 (pays $1) and once in a "blue moon" 3/5 (pays $10), but never yet 4/5 or 5/5 for a jackpot.

                            catsrule, I have to ask if you're talking about picking up $100 a week or more live play, or hitting this "on paper", hitting that often sounds awful strong.

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

                            Lep

                            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.

                              no, i just mess around on paper with the pick 5 games. I rarley play for real, but when i do i don't do to bad. I stick to pick 3 games the most. Easier money with that game.
