Okay, so I was just noticing something.  States have their 5of 6 plus bonus games and the pick five ( or our Fantasy Five) games right?  Okay,  the 5/49 plus a bonus almost ALWAYS have 3 or 4 people win 5 without the bonus numbers. ,giving them a small share of around 20-30K, right?

Now, you take the Fantasy Five, which doesn't have a bonus number and only 39 numbers.  There is almost always ONLY one winner that wins the 50 to 350K jackpot. 

Can anyone explain why that is?  to me, I would think with better odds, you would have more 5 of 5 winners for Fantasy.  It is that kind of scenario that makes me wonder if the lottery outcome of games really are  manipulated somehow.  I have only seen   multiple Fantasy Fiive winners when there is a large jackpot like 300-400K.   I scratch my head and go Hmmmmm.

I hate to get all Conspiracy Theory about things  but I wonder.

        lottocalgal,

        Any 5 + 1 game is actually two lotteries in one, or a lottery parlay. If you get the 5 + 5 you still have to get the 1 of however many, and it ain't easy MCGee, as they say.

        In the Pick 5, Illinois (5/39) has had a jackpot over over $1,000,000 a couple of times. I don't remember how many people hit when it was that high but I know one time it was a shared jackpot for sure.

        The most I've ever seen share a Pick 5 jackot was 6.

        I think the Pick 5 just doesn't get that much play in comparison because most players are chasing the largest jackpot they can go after.

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        Lep

        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.

          If I could play the Cash 5(1-34) here in VA, which has a $100,000 top prize...I am sure I could win frequently...I had a set of numbers I wheeled and didn't play ofcourse coz no extra money...but one of my numbers came up...I was upset. C5 is played 2wice a day 7 days a week...the odds are on your side for sure if you know what you are doing.

            Me too. Some of the lotteries give *hints* that make one wonder if they're on the "up and up". I almost wonder in the 11-15 min between the time they stop selling tickets here, and actually get the numbers drawn, if they're not re-drawing, and matching them up with how many winners they want for a particular night/how much they want to pay out. I'm sure it would only take a computer program a few minutes, to figure it all out, and opt for the numbers with the least amount of winners.

              Thats what i think.  If 3-4 ALWAYS get 5 numbers on a bonus game with 49 numbers, then why wouldnt that same amount get  the jackpot in the Fantasy five non bonus game  of 39 unless its manipulated at the last minute somehow.  Odds are bad enough without a thumb on the scale as they say.

                Thats why i quit playing keno , i think its a hidden cash cow . someone only wins the top prize once every 2 months. i track it every day and only a couple of people win the second top prize throughout the week.

                  We have take five in NY....if the jackpot is around the 90k or above range one winner  will win the jackpot the winner is usually from queens, kings or new york county all are in NYC proper and or Long Island ....however if it is a smaller amount there are usually 3 to four winners from counties outside the NYC /Long Island area....go figure...same thing can be said about the MM jackpot winners...

                    So if i understand you right Coin,

                    The reason why  (still)  only 1 person  wins the Fantasy five jackpot is that there are fewer people playing that game as opposed to the Super?

                            The smaller the jackpot the fewer players there are. As the jackpot gets higher more people purchase tickets. The more tickets sold the higher the possibility of multiple winners.

                            I have seen it mentioned many times here at lottery post that players only purchase tickets when the jackpot gets higher.
