double play daily

I've been waiting forever for our state to get a Pick 5 game and we finally did. Although, it is a bit different from other games. It's hard to describe but you can read about it here: http://idaholottery.com/DPDnumb.asp. What do you all think? I don't quite know how I feel about it. I would prefer to be able to choose just one line and it only cost a dollar, but I think it's cool that we finally got a game that is just for our state. I also like the fact, that both lines that you play, will be entered into both drawings for that day.

    Sound like a fun game. Give it a try, back-to-back for $2 is like playing with $1 for one draw. $20,000 prize is quite small but I hope the jackpot rolls if there was no winner from the previous draw. Good luck!

      Thanks! I think I will give it a go. I do like the fact, that if you match two numbers you get $2 back. There have been many times where I would play a game and get two numbers and not get anything, so that is kind of nice.

        Hello,

        Awesome I just got back from Malad placing my lines for tomorrow's powerball.  I didn't notice the play slips but I wasn't really looking it.  I live in SLC.  I'm currently working on a system for Florida Fantasy 5 with is a 5/36 ball system.  With double draws daily I will get alot of draws to sample into my system at double the rate !!!.  First draw flat $20,000, 2nd draw Progressive jackpot !!!.  I will definitely start playing in a month that will be 60 draws that will definitely be enough draws to analyze the short-term trends.  Yea, I am so happy.

        Jimmy

          The progressive jackpot only jumped by $113 after 3 days so it didn't get off to a rousing start if that is any indication of play.  Still I think I'm going to like this game better than Wildcard 2.  Wildcard is 5/31 with bonus 1/16.  Payout on 5 match is only $5000.  On the other hand you get 2 picks for $1.  Match 4 for Wildcard 2 only pays $20 which is really low.  Hey getting 4 correct is an accomplishment and getting only $20 sucks.  I also don't like the separate bonus ball.  Heres hoping play picks up on the "Double Play Daily" so those progressive jackpots grow.  In addition I don't remember seeing any advertisement for the game on the Idaho web site prior to it starting but I might have skipped it thinking it was a scratcher game which I don't play.

            I didn't see any advertisments either. I only found out about it because I was checking some tickets of mine at the Idaho lottery site. I am going to drop Hot Lotto and Wild Card 2 for a bit and try my hand at this game. Since it is $2.00 a play I can't play as much but since you get two lines it's basically just like playing two lines for a buck each. I really like the fact that they have two drawings and both lines are entered into both drawings. I do think the jackpot could start a bit higher, because it has 36 balls, but I will try a couple of lines out.

            I also think it will probably take a little while for it to take off with players. They probably should have advertised it a bit better.

              I'm definitely going to play, need to start a spreadsheet and start tracking results.  Its definitely in between WildCard 2 (5/31) and Hot Lotto(5/39).  Even Hot Lotto only pays out $10,000 for match 5.  I don't like the bonus ball games because that is where the house odds really out favor the player.  I only play powerball because the 5 match is $200,000 and when I really feel lucky I play the PowerPlay option hoping for the million.  I feel I can come up with a working system for 5 white balls to increase my odds, but in my opinion picking the bonus ball is just pure luck and unfortunately right now I'm not a lucky person.  I'm a good math/computer/logic person but defintely not the mystical/intuition type person like some people who have a feel for what the winning numbers are going to be.  I'm jealous of them there the ones with the true talent.

              Good luck and hope your the first to hit the jackpot!!!

                Hello,

                Yesterday's draw 05/09/2009 Draw 2: 01-05-16-25-26

                I had 01-03-16-25-34.  Won $12 on first attempt, in less that 1 week I already have a match3, I have only achieved 1 match 3 for Powerball for the entire year.  Maybe this is going to be my game.
