"Other" was included because I'm not sure if there are other 5 +1 games, not familiar with foreign games, etc...and there are games like state "Mega Millions" that are 4 + 1 (Florida?)

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.

      Pick-3 without a doubt, because of the better odds, and because we have a draw every evening. Although, I would probably dabble in Pick-4 if Oklahoma started it.

          I play more scratchers than anything, but dabble in all of them especially when MM or PB get big... Don't think I have ever bought a Pick4 though... Just pick 3 & Win4Life, etc. - PoGo

            I like to play scratchers a whole lot more than I do numbers games.  I especially like to try out new scratchers when they come out. 

            I only play Mega Millions if the jackpot gets $100 Million or more (like this Friday....which means I need to drag out my GA Lottery Player's Club coupon for Mega Millions BOGO (buy one-get one (quick pick) free)).  I only play Cash 3, Cash 4, and Fantasy 5 when I get BOGO coupons from the GA Lottery.  I only play Keno when I'm at a place that has that and I'm going to be there for a while.....and when I play, I don't play 10-spot.  Instead, I play the 4-spot....overall odds are better (hit 3 of 4 for $5 quite a few times....I've yet to hit 4 of 4 for $70, though).

            A Gold account on Lottery Post:  $4.95

            A Millionaire Jumbo Bucks scratcher:  $20

            Airfare and hotel in March 2007 to see The Price Is Right before Bob Barker retired:  $600-something

              For me it used to be Pick 3. I was even turning a profit, but decided it was too much effort, and it was starting to feel more like a job or chore than entertainment. That and I started playing the lottery because of my currently unattainable goal of owning a home, and I don't see the Pick 3 ever helping me get there. So now I only play Pick 5, which is my best chance of quickly achieving that goal, and I only play on days where the jackpot is high enough to matter in that respect, and there's far less number crunching for me, so it's back to feeling entertaining again too

                I tend to play Wild Card 2 the most (Powerball behind that). It's a 5+1 game, I mean 5 numbers and then you choose the Wild Card which isn't a number at all.

                  Just Mega Millions, because if there's some rare cosmic event which lady luck is going to be smiling upon me when playing a lottery, I'd prefer it to be a huge jackpot.

                  You can't predict random.

                          same here, I chose other b/c I play the florida state lottery only, not sure which that would fall under.  Maybe pick 6??

                              I play Pick 6. We also got scratchers in Norway, but I don't like to play them since I feel I got no control over winning or losing. When playing Pick 6 I feel I can control it more because I can pick the numbers myself.
