Since MM and PB are now available in many states, do you stick to one, play them bith, play them all (includes your state's Pick 6), just go for the highest jackpot, or ?

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

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 play Rolling Cash5, Classic Lotto, MegaMillions and PowerBall one at a time, usually the one with the best jackpot for its odds.  Today that's Rolling Cash5 with a jackpot of $439K.  I keep my data files up to date so I'm ready to give my system a workout any time I get the feeling.

            I have *4* Jackpot games 

            Mega, Power, NY LOTTO & Sweet Millions.  

            I play NY LOTTO every time as I can get my normal set of 3 numbers & 1 QP for $2.00

            **When ever** I hit on Numbers (3way) or Win 4 I will then spend money on the others.

            Money won is twice as good as money earned!

              I play Powerball, Mega Millions, Hot Lotto and sometimes Wild Card 2 when the jackpot gets high.

                    Did you ever play NY's Lotto Extra?  It's no longer available, and that's a shame...

                    Yeah it was a buck a game as opposed to regular Lotto's fifty cents a game, but the odds were much better when you bought the "extra" ball. (It was the 8th ball drawn)

                    What was really nice about it, was if you had 5 of 6 numbers and also had the bonus or extra ball (and you had played Lotto Extra) the second place prize was DOUBLED.  One subscriber winner of Lotto Extra saw a second place prize of $300,000 jump up to $600,000 just because he had played Lotto Extra.  If you had all six numbers and you had played Extra, just like regular lotto, you'd win the current jackpot.

                    Must not have been enough interest in the game, so they pulled it.  Too bad... most people I know didnt understand how it worked.  When I explained it to them, they usually switched from regular Lotto to Lotto Extra.

                    About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!

                        I stay with PowerBall;  playing the others may be good practice, but each game has its own personality. For me, Powerball is a little more friendly.

                          I don't play the lotto. I just pretend to play the Mega Millions and California Super Lotto Plus picks.

                            I  play $1-$5  on all the jackpot games in new york.  Sometimes i also play $1 to $5 on take5.  There is $50 million dollars to be won in new york jackpot games by playing 1 line or more starting today monday june 28, 2010.  On june 13, 2010 i won $533.50 on new york take five with a $5 ticket.  I posted a copy of the actual winning ticket at the following link  for everybody to see as proof http://powermillions.blogspot.com/2010/06/june-13-2010-take-five-drawing-won.html

                              I said all of them.

                              I play PB and MM in Tennessee.

                              I play Pick5 and Pick6 in Virginia or anywhere but Tennessee because I don't like or trust the computers here.
