Pick10 only has had 25 jackpot winners during the last 5 years.
Either very few people play it, or its not possible to win.  Considering its played
daily, I am astonished at these results.  The odds are just too high
for such a low jackpot to even bother($500k - 1:9m).
It seems that having twice the chance to win would make the 2nd&3rd prizes
winnable.  However, a key space of 80, negates 2x numbers.  Had the key space been
same as Take5, with 5-39-10, then fine, we are in the game, as such no more Pick10 for me.

Also, Sweet Million doesnt have too many jackpot winners either.  I just get $5 on Take5 for 2 free QP SM tickets.

    I agree pick 10 is  a joke...now if it was pick 10 out of 50,. I might actually play.

    have a great winning day!

      Very few people play Pick 10, in fact I'd say that 25 winners in the past 5 years is actually pretty good considering only 25 people play each day. Granted that figure is an exaggeration, but probably not by much.

        1) I don't know of ANY Lottery game where they draw twice as many numbers needed to win the Jackpot.

        2) Despite it being a 10 number right (80 number pool) game there are many ways to reduce things and better your odds, similar to that of any other Jackpot game.  A very interesting game to anylyze and stratergize(there...I misspelled at least two things in a sentence)

        3) the $500,000 prize is guaranteed.  Your extremely likely to never have to split it with anyone.

        For reasons like this, I don't care how few winners there are...and have been.  It will continue to be one of my primary games.

        My only beef with the game are the ridicoulously low 2nd and 3rd place prizes.  To get a super difficult (9 of 10 right) and only get $6,000 simply sucks.

        Amazing how suddenly winning gives you a more positive attitude.  I despise Take 5 when I wipeout...and love it when I score a 4 of 5.
