I don't like the pick3 and pick4 games and in Ohio we have three jackpot style games to choose from.  I usually play Rolling Cash5 when it rolls to $300K+ but I like playing for a nice size jackpot so I usually play MegaMillions and Classic Lotto more.  Since I usually only win a couple of dollars, I prefer the one that I win more often which is MM.  As you can tell by the overall odds, it's easier to win a couple of bucks with the MM game than it is with CL.  While the odds of winning the CL jackpot are a lot better, the chances of winning a small prize makes playing MM more enjoyable.

    MegaMillions is all I play. We don't have PowerBall out here in Ohio but if we did, I'd definitely play it as well. But I digress: I play MM every drawing regardless of the jackpot. That means when it resets to $12M and upwards. I track the numbers and have developed my own system. I input everything into an Excel spreadsheet (since I learned intimately at work the ins and outs of the software).

      My favorite is the Powerball, because it's offered in my state! :) If there was Mega Millions here instead, I'm sure Mega Millions would be my favorite. If they were both here, they'd be tied for favorites! :)

      What are the chances of you looking at my profile?

      I bet it ranges from 1:1 to 1:10!

      Lottery Winners having a party! :)

      Kidding, probably closer to 1:100! :)

          Ok,  I've all, scratch offs, fantasy 5, and cash 3.  I perform a personal test where I took $20 and played each one.   My biggest and most consistent win  was ..........

           

          SCRATCH-OFFS -   I do have a system, and its no big deal, no psycic power or nothing like that, just common sense.  But the most consistent win is with the scratch-ofs.

          The next one is Fantasy5, with winning free tickes of 2/5 now, twice I've gotton 4/5, but hey........ that felt good.

          Cash 3,  even thoug to most its the easiest to play, I always miss it by one number, or the day my frustration takes over I don't play it falls.   same ole story.  I more frustrated with this one when I loose than with any other.  That's why I quit playing.

          Scratch off is for me!

            I like the 4 digit game the best!  I play the 4 way wager type.   First won $600.00 in the box on 2227 on 9/25/05  and I was hooked!   

             

            Won $5K in January on the 2272 as I played it all 4 ways for $.50 and hubby played it again for me while he was at the store as he thought I had forgot to play it!   That was a blessing!!  $3,000 was just in time to pay our town taxes!

            7/31/08 I hit the 3336 in the box for $.50 and received $600.00.

            This is the reason 4 digit game has become my favorite of all time!

               I am working on a system for it... Doing quite well. 

              Mine too.

              I, like you, am working on a "system" for it.  I don't believe I will ever find the Yellow Brick Road but if I do, then my "system" will carry over to Powerball, MegaMillions, and our P6 game.

                "But if I had to choose it would be the FL Fantasy-5 which is a 5/36game.  Much higher odds than pick-3 but also considerably lower odds than Lotto which is a 6/53 game. "
