I had to take a big bunch of empty soda bottles to the store today, so I bought the three free SM promo for 5 bucks.

Now, as I look over my eight QP's, they look flat out butt ugly to me!  But ya never know, those numbers could be hotter than a two dollar whore on the 4th of July in Texas!!  So I'm gonna keep 'em! 

One never knows, do one???

        I did it again!!!!  I hit 4 numbers last night - 18,19,21,30 (SM Drawing 6,18,19,21,30,38), and I had the 6 and 38 on the line below it with 22 and 29, so I came close to getting another 4 matching numbers, too bad the 6 and 38 didn't come up with the four winners I picked.  I can't believe it, I've won $83.00 on the last two SM drawings and I just started picking my own numbers since the February promo.  My several hours of working on picking my own numbers is starting to pay off, I hope it keeps up!

        Congrats. on your win, GiveFive!

          So Jacal, you gonna win again tonight?

          I know you're loaded up on SM tix!!  Afterall, if it was ME that hit for 83 smackers, I'd have a whole bunch of free SM tix!

          I'm in.  Got my 3 free last Saturday.  Did some partial QP's, some straight QP's and a player pick too.  When I looked over my numbers on both tickets, I wasnt impressed.  I got some really bunched up numbers on the 3 free ticket. (Like this: 4 6 10 11 19 27.  It's lopsided.  Too many numbers from the lower 20. I like 3 numbers from the first 20, and 3 from the second 20. Although a 3/3 odd/even split is OK.)

            I hope so, it would be sweeter than sweet to win Sweet Million on Valentine's Day!  Actually your numbers are not as bad as you think, 4 is overdue, 6 may repeat from the last drawiing (I have 4 and 6 together on one of lines I picked out my own numbers), 10 and 11 are two number sequences that like to come out, 10 came out 4 or 5 drawings back and is a good bet, 11 has come out a few times in the last five drawings, 19 is hot, and 27 is overdue (I have 19 and 27 on another line), so sit tight with those numbers. 

            I remembered the chances your numbers have in tonight's drawing without looking at my notes so you know I have spent a lot of time analyzing tonight's drawing, so I hope you are impressed and I hope you win!

            P.S. I only bought a five dollar ticket with my own picks and the three free for tonight,  I thought about getting another 5 dollar ticket, all QP's, so I would have 16 lines, but I couldn't decide where to buy it, so I just came home, there are too many lottery retailers around here, it makes it tough to decide which store will hand you the winning QP numbers for the million (lol).

              Gee-zus Jacal!! 

              What the heck did you do for a living?  What were you? Some kinda digit-head???? I guess I have to be impressed with your spittin out all those facts about my numbers without you havin to check your notes!!

              And that plethera of lottery retailers is a GOOD thing.  That way you can remain anonymous when the big hit comes.  No need to go back to the store or nuthin'!!  They sure aint gonna know who bought the winning ticket, and it'll drive 'em nuts when you dont show up in the store after the big win.

              That's my plan anyway... if I win big, I aint goin back to the store.  I'm keepin that low profile.

                  I'm glad you won something, I had all the numbers that came out (SM-02,12,13,16,25,26) on the first three lines of my picks, but I didn't win anything, I had the 11,12 sequence instead of the winning 12,13 sequence on the third line, otherwise I would have won $3.00 (see my picks below)

                  13, 18, 19, 21, 25, 30

                  02, 10, 15, 16, 31, 34

                  11, 12, 20, 26, 33, 35

                    So, is the February SM 3-free promo working?

                    I think not.  There's been 4 drawings in February and we've seen only 1 JP winner.

                    NY cant even get enough "coverage" with the extra 3 free plays to shake a JP loose.  Sooner or later, somethin's gotta give with SM. 

                    The same thing that happened with Lotto Extra might happen to SM.  Ticket sales of Lotto Extra stunk too. Lotto Extra died a very quiet and unannounced death.

                      The only way to save sweet million is by MAKING IT A 5/40 GAME AND KEEPING THE PRIZES THE SAME WAY.Otherwise it will face the same destiny of lotto extra.New york lottery should try it for a while to see the results after it becomes a 5/40 game.

                      We, new yorkers spend money on lotteries, but we are not stupid with our money.I feel that if lotteries keep on getting greedy by making games like mega millions , poweball and soon to be gone sweet million with insane odds, we are going to play less.It really hurts the lottery when people play less. i used to play $5 a week on sweet million, i changed that to $1 a month.i will win a lottery jackpot if it is meant to be. A 5/40 game is easier to win than a 6/40 game.

                        I think most jackpot game players like a game that features a roll-over jackpot. 

                        In order to entice more players to play Sweet Millions, my suggestion to NY would be to roll over the JP if there's no winner.  I dont think they'll lower the odds by making it a 5/40 game. 

                        If the state wants to keep SM, they'll have to do something with it.  I just dont see how it can last the way it stands right now.  If they opt not to keep it, then what will they replace it with???

                        The crazy thing is you cant find an online jackpot game like SM in any other state.  In comparison with other online jackpot games, SM does have the best odds for winning a million dollars. (in NY or anywhere else) So I dont know what is preventing NY lottery players from playing the game.

                          This might sound a little crazy, but I think I'm gonna do it......

                          Sweet Millions isnt pari-mutuel for the first 5 Jackpot winners.  If five people have all six winning numbers, each would receive a million dollars.

                          I'm gonna play the same set of six numbers 5 times on one ticket.  If those 6 numbers were drawn, I'd win 5 million dollars. (I win one million dollars for each line on the ticket)

                          Now, I totally get the fact that we dont see many JP's from SM.  But wouldnt the State of New York just love it if I (or any one else for that matter) hit 5 times in the same drawing?  They'd have my picture in the "Recent Winners" section of their website in a heartbeat!  Tell me that kind of news wouldnt generate some extra sales of SM tickets!

                            I won again!!  I had three numbers on my picks and three numbers on the "three free" on my tickets purchased in "da Bronx!"   Now I can add $6.00 to my total winnings in the last four SM drawings (my only losing day was last Monday since the promo started Feb 1) which brings me up to $89.00! 

                            GiveFive:  I like your new strategy, now you are thinking like me (lol).  BTW, the new NY Lottery web-site is up and running again, with the SM numbers coming out of those stupid hatched broken eggs, and you have to wait for the graphics to load, what a dumb, juvenile, idiotic idea.

                            I really think this country wants to influence kids to gamble as soon as they come out of the womb because our country is broke and needs revenue any way they can get it.  Even those commercials about babies trading stocks with the Smart Phone,  I think Wall Street wants to get those kids hooked early on investing so they can steal more of the middle class money than they didn't already steal, and take it to Germany where the New York Stock Exchange is headed to get away from U.S. regulations protecting investors.  I sold  most of my stock holdings after I heard the news of the German takeover, even Donald Trump is saying the stock market is phony and rigged.  A German takeover of the stock market means unregulated  short selling, options trading, etc. that erodes the value of stocks and makes the short sellers rich when they borrow your stock from the brokerage houses, sell it short, and then make a fortune when they drive your stock down in value.  401K's were the best investment vehicle ever made to rip off the middle class of their hard earned money by Wall Street. Just imagine if social security was privatized like Baby Bush wanted, all the retirees would be broke today!

                              Don't claim all the five winning tickets in the same year, too much money to give to the taxman all at once (lol).
