I stay away from P3 and P4, because even if you win it wont make much difference in your life.
I limit the number of Powerballs and Mega millions, because the Odds are just too terrible.
I focus on the ones that pay between $10,000 and $200,000
And the games that pay in the low millions.
Badger 5 may only be paying $84,000 tonight, but the odds are like 1,150x better than powerball.
Wis Megabucks is only paying $2,700,000 cash Saturday but the odds are 28x better than powerball.
Illinois Little lotto is paying $175,000 tonight @ 300x better odds than mega millions....
Illinois lotto is paying about $2,000,000 cash Saturday night @ 17x better odds....
Each of the above amounts would make a big positive effect on my life, at much better odds.
But Powerball is paying $19,000,000 cash after taxes and I have to respect that too...
And my biggest win was at rediculus odds.
I stay away from the multiplier.
Sure I would have won $40K instead of $10k, but the winning ticket that I did buy was the LAST one, so if I was playing the multiplier, I would not have bought that winning ticket.
And I do balance out the prize and the amount that I play.
