been chasing a jackpot on 6/38 game here.  i usually let it jackpot for ages before i start throwing money at it. as it  takes weeks even to get to the $700k it went off at today.

its not a big game, and i never expect it get won. I've been working on some new numbers and all it was ready to roll the in  coming week.

now its back to $70k. Thats  still a nice amount to win for a $10 bet I cant  bring myself to it.  odds of winning are 1 in 2.2 mill to 1. for 55c a line. not bad return at 700k, but just cant bring myself to enter the draw now at the lower jackpot.

 

ho humm.. feeling deflated

      700K is a WONDERFUL amount.

      Illinois Little lotto is going above $700k now...

      That would put me on EZ Street!

        Is $10 the minimum you can bet?

          savagegoose,

          6/38, even pick 5, it's still 'a dollar and a dream'. To expect a jackpot for having chased it is only setting yourself up for disappointment.

          Plus, there's two schools of thought here, one is playing when the jackpot is pumped up, the other is "Oh sure, people want everyone else to build the jackpot for them and then come in and snatch it."

          Markp1950,

          The Illinois Little Lotto is now $850,000.

          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.

            nope  $1.10 is the min you can bet. you get 2 lines for that.   i always bet that ea week. its just when the game  jackpots i start upping my bet. a collection of popularnumbers that hit together.

            i like this game because of the low odds,and the compounding jackpot. I always feel if im going to win lotto , this will be the one.

              Sounds like a pretty good deal you got there.

              I'd be afraid to step back on that even when it's starting off again cuz well... you know what usually happens then, lol.

                I feel burnout right now from trying to win any lottery; I may take a few days off from it, because it seems to difficult to achieve!

                 

                If you feel good about a number though, you should play it!I Agree!

                  yeah i have a trick for that, i try not to check the numbers if im not on them. it has been going thru my head that $10 isnt a bad price for a $70k win, if only it would hit. well i have a week to decided on that. now that you have warned me,  im almost guranteed of a hit comming up if i dont play them

                  :P

                   

                  eliz

                  yeah i dont normally play more than i can afford, so i dont mind the small amounts, its just well $10 a week on 1 game is getting over my limit. its usually $10 for the whole week for me.
