          Am I the only one who thinks Super 7 is a guaranteed way to lose money?

          - 2 of the 3 plays on a ticket are generated by the machine,  so you can actually control only 33% of the combinations that you play.  Do you think those combinations generated by the machine are really random?

          - the odds of winning the jackpot are low like hell: 1 in 21 million !!! (20,963,833)

          I don't like it Rant

            all the big lottos odds are really low from powerball to megamillions to the canada 6/49. if you get past the low odds you can have a little fun. the key word is a little fun. i have hit several times on the super 7 and one time for over a hundred dollars cdn.

            i personally like the way the advance feature is set up for the game. i can't speak for ontairio but BC is lotto subscriber friendly vs ontairio. being that it drawn only once a week i can purchase a ticket for a long time and be playing ever week. when i win the good people of the province of BC send me a check when my winnings are over 20 dollars.

            so the low odds are ok.

            6/49 is 48 million. you know if i won i would probably have to move to canada. lol.

              I'm OK with 6/49 odds because it's only 1 in 14 million or even less sometimes Wink . But that means Super7 is 50% less likely to be won than a 6/49 game! So if someone can choose between them, why would they choose what's harder to get and more expensive? No Nod Maybe it's fun, as you said. At least if they let you pick all the combinations that you pay for, instead of generating their "random" ones.

              Yes I heard that in BC you can play online;  I think in Ontario you can play online only for Canada Lotto 6/49. As for that feature for playing the same numbers every draw, that's useless for serious players - they don't play the same numbers for different draws No Nod.

              Why do you have to move to Canada if you win this 48 million? You can move anywhere you want, you can even buy a small country with that money

                i like your answers and your statements

So if someone can choose between them, why would they choose what's harder to get and more expensive? No Nod  -----  honestly i don't know where you are getting your statistics. i will have to agree with them because i can't dispute them. i live in a megamillion state and they are always talking about you could hit by lighting 7 times before you can win the pot. Megamillions is up to 145 million because no one won tonight. i bet you the odds of winning it are much lower than the super 7. still millions play because they want the money. which is the main reason i like playing super 7.

                the odds for winning super 7 are not a deterrent to me to play. if that was the case i wouldn't play my home grown lotto. i can just walk down to the store instead of driving for 2 hours.

                 

                Maybe it's fun, as you said. At least if they let you pick all the combinations that you pay for, instead of generating their "random" ones.   ----  now if my memory holds true if i chose to i could pick all 3 panels myself. i have just as much luck picking my own numbers as the random choices. i actually pick the first panel and let the computer pick the other two. i play megamillion and powerball by random picks here in the states. i do have a blog you can read about some of my expoits that i do here on lottery post.

                As for that feature for playing the same numbers every draw, that's useless for serious players - they don't play the same numbers for different draws No Nod.   ---- can you imagine the cost it would be for me to go to canada for every lotto drawing? can you imagine what the border guards would be asking me every time. lol. I must not be a serious player in your eyes then. i like the multidraw feature of any lottery system. it gives me the ability to play the game and not actually be there. my ticket for the super 7 takes me to july of this year. i don't know about you but i like the thought of one chance per week at millions. i am headed to florida and i can get a ticket good for 6 months.

                why not move to canada? lol

                    I won a free play on super 7 on one ticket last night, and on the other ticket I won $10.00 so I bought some 649 tickets for tonight's jackpot.. Don't know if I'll win but I took a chance..

                     

                    HyperI'll be doing this if I win..

                      You can see the odds of winning Super 7 or 6/49 on the BC lottery site, or on the Ontario lottery site. I can also do the math here if anyone is interested.

                      The results are the same: about 21 million combinations of Super 7, versus 14 million combinations of 6/49. Therefore Super 7 has 50% more combinations than 6/49.

                      ----  now if my memory holds true if i chose to i could pick all 3panels myself.

                      Wow! You're right about the 3 panels for BC Super7 tickets - I saw now on their site, and I didn't know that it's different from Ontario. Here the Ontario lottery company is forcing Super7 players to accept 2 computer generated combinations along with 1 combination of their choice. That's not fair! Let It All OutBut that means in the particular case of BC I was actually wrong, and it might be more advantageous to play Super7 there than to play Canada 6/49 . Wow!

                      ----- i have just as much luck picking my own numbers as therandom choices.

                      I disagree with that but I can't prove I'm 100% right for every draw Cool

                      ----- why not move to canada? lol

                      No, you said you'd have to move if you won 48 million. So why have to?

                          if it all came down to just looking at the odds while playing a game i would do like most players here and play the pick 3 numbers. the odds are real good for winning those games. people spend hours on wheels and other means of determining a winner. me i like the long odds so i don't over spend on lesser odds. meaning spending my money on a pick 3 day or night game. i have stood behind people who will play lots of those numbers. especially in new york and maryland. i don't know what the deal is in ontairio or BC for pick 3 games. i just don't do them. i stood behind a guy in DC once who collected $1600 dollars on their pick 4 game. he played the same number 3 times in one day and hit with each ticket. my luck would be to lose all three tickets. so sue me because i am use to losing on the 1 in 21 million odds of winning the super 7. i hope i am not being mean here. i hate being mean and if this comes across that way let me apologize. just speaking my mind. i still like your comments and questions.

                          Wow! You're right about the 3 panels for BC Super7 tickets - I saw now on their site, and I didn't know that it's different from Ontario.

                          No, you said you'd have to move if you won 48 million. So why have to?  --  no you are right i wouldn't have to move. i could buy that island you were talking about too. i had a conversation here some time back about being a US citizen and winning in canada. Canada gives all the money now with no taxes taken out right away unlike in the US where they get their money first. i was wondering if i could keep my winnings in canada and not claim it here in the US. well i think a person or two who know a lot more about the tax laws in both countries than i do said no can do. i would still have to claim it in the states.

                          my joke (and a poor one at that) was to just move to canada and not pay the US anything. then it gets all messed up in citizenship applications in canada and taxes in canada. i think you get hit for taxes in canada the next year. i don't know but maybe a big winner in canada can educate us. so would i have to move? no. would i want to move. not really. i love visiting canada but i don't think i can live there. i can't say a bad word (well maybe a few Wink) about canada.

                           

                          i see someone won the canada 6/49!! anyone know what province won? Please tell me it was BC and in Surrey. please please please.

                          Ok lie to me and say yes it was won in surrey by me. lol.

                            No, there were 4 winners: 1 from Quebec and 3 from Ontario, so each of them got about 12.5 million CAD. Not bad eh? Crazy

                              thanks about the comments. i get too intense at times.

                              plus you were supposed to lie to me about winning. lol. just as in the states most of the winners of the big lotteries are are from the middle to the eastern part of the country.

                              i am heading down to oregon to pick me up a ticket for the powerball at 150 million. do you ever cross into Michigan or new york to get a megamillion ticket? you know we don't care if you are canadian because we will pay you too and send you back to canada with a REAL BIG SMILE ON YOUR FACE!!! tomorrow megamillion is 145 million. might be worth the hassle at the border. Wink you could play multiple plays (oh no i forgot you are a serious player).

                              decades back there was a illegal mexican won the california lottery. after the lawyers got involved and public opinion. california gave him the 26 million jackpot and deported him being an illegal alien. i don't think he has ever come back to the states after that win. Partyanyway that is all i heard of about that story.
