Unhappy   I used to play Pick 10 here in New York and finally quit because it seems no one ever wins the top prize and rarely the second prize. What's the worst game in your state?   What?

    I don't live in Poland, but I have a friend who lives there and tells me that they have the worst lottery in the world.

    He said that they hold a million dollar lottery every week, and the payout is one dollar a year for a million years. I have to agree with him. It is the worst.

      joker,

      I thought that was Arkansas!

      I'll say the worst game in Illinois is the Lotto, 6/52.

      There'sthree drawings a week and it got hit a screaming total of 11 times lastyear. The jackpot starts at $2,000,000, the rollovers are a grind, andthe prizes for 5 of 6 and 4 of 6 are very chintzy.

      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.

        I don't really know about other places, but in my state, I would say our Pick 5 game "Double Play Daily" is probably the worst game we have. It has very low payouts and a high set of numbers to choose from.

            I have to say in Texas it's the Cash 5. 5/37 = odds of 435,897 to 1 for a "jackpot" of around $23,000 to $25,000. It doesn't roll if no one hits, and it's paramutuel.

            It does pay $2 for hitting 2 of 5. 3 of 5 pays around $10, 4 of 5 pays around $400 if no one hits the jackpot. If someone does hit, the 4 of 5 pays around $100. But if or when I play, it's not for 2 bucks.

            Kinda wish Tx would replace it with a Quinto game like Pa.

                Keno, it's very rare that anyone hits the jackpot, maybe once in 2 months.

                  I never play it but I think our Daily Derby is just plain stupid.  The "jackpot" is difficult to win as you have to get the correct horses and times right.  I would think that only QP would win that one.

                    What a rip. I bet half of the winners don't even live that long.

                    It should be changed immediately to a dollar a month for a million months.

                        the worst non-scratchoff game in my state is the so called 2$ ''Fast Play'' games.

                          Most gamblers say Keno is the worst game to play in the casinos also. I'm surprised to see that someone wins every two months in your state lottery.

                            MD. Multi Match 6 you pick 1 line it picks the other 2 for $2 per play!   What a deal!

                            WHAT IS MULTI-MATCH?
                            Multi-Match is the new Lotto-style game from the Maryland Lottery. You get to play 18 numbers with four easy ways to match and win. All for just $2. When you play Multi-Match, for each game you play, you will be able to select your first line of 6 numbers or choose Quick Pick. You will automatically receive 2 additional lines of 6 randomly selected numbers, for a total of 18 numbers. Plus, there are 4 DIFFERENT WAYS TO WIN - one chance to win per line, that's 3 ways to win, AND a 4th chance to win by combining the matches in all 3 lines.

                            3 EXCITING WAYS TO PLAY MULTI-MATCH
                            1. Play Slip:
                            The first way to play Multi-Match is to go to a Maryland Lottery Agent to obtain a play-slip. There are 5 games on each play-slip. That means to play all 5 games, the ticket costs $10.

                            2. Quick Pick:
                            The second way to play Multi-Match is through Quick Pick. If you wish, just tell your Agent that you want Quick Pick, and the Lottery's computer will randomly select your numbers for you.

                            3. Multi-Match Subscription:
                            The third way to play, and to insure that you're playing every week, is by purchasing a Multi-Match Subscription. Pick up an application from any Maryland Lottery Agent. Or, download one here. With a Multi-Match Subscription, you can play your numbers for 26, 52, or 104 drawings. And if you win, the Lottery will automatically send you your winnings (all $2 and $7 Multi-Match prizes will be sent to you in one lump sum at the end of your subscription). Plus, Multi-Match Subscriptions make great gifts. Remember, postal regulations require subscriptions be mailed to Maryland addresses only!

                            PRIZE LEVELS
                            Prize levels are determined as follows:

                            overall
