    Illinois does the things you mentioned, but for a really informative website, try Missouri.

    They have an excellent page on what to do if you win a jackpot.

    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.

        What I'd like is to find a website where you can find the winningest stores around you. I keep playing at a couple places, but I don't know if they are winning places or just bad ones.

        I used to think that I would skip the places where people had won, since I originally thought, that the "winning" karma was used up there. But after reading this group, I see that the places that win the most, keep winning it seems.

          Hey Cointoss - thanks for that information! I found the Missouri faq really interesting. Most states are pretty boring and have little info. Sounds like Missouri has a fun time, really help you out - and they have a Millionaires Picnic every year too!

            I think copper2 was asking about official state lottery sites.

            Thanks, glad you enjoyed the site. Missouri did an excellent job, it is very informative.

                I think I know what c-2 is asking,

                    At one of those Tn. web-sites,  for pick 5, Pb,  Lotto-Plus,  there's a thing on the side for

                                                                    details

                   it'll tell you how many people won 4 of 5,  3 of 5  etc.

                            The pick 3 and pick 4 don't have that part.      ( I think that's it)

                  Out of all the states websites I would have to say that Michigan has to rank very high.  They have the amount of winner for each game and drawing, which I noticed a lot of site don't do.  They also started updating the scratch prizes that are left for each game every day!  And not just the top prizes, but every prize for every game.  I do think they have one of the best if not the best.

                          Maybe but the Michigan website does not say how many tickets were printed for each scratch game and it does not tell you around how many are left.

                          Eg 771898/2500000.  That would be nice because you would know which games had the better odds for the prizes. 

                          It would also be nice if they told you  The number of prizes left and the total number of prizes the game started with at each prize level.

                          Eg Top prize 1/3  for 1 top prize left out of 3.

                            Yup, they've  improved their site by updating scratcher information, but my one gripe has always been that they never tell how many tickets were originally sold.  Also, does anyone else find it wierd that the top prizes for the 20 dollar tickets are not listed?  I noticed this when they introduced one a couple of months ago and the only top prizes were several thousand ones, but nothing about the 2 million dollar top prize advertised.  Not that I would pay 20 bucks for a scratch ticket either way, but something doesn't make sense.
