My goal for 2011 is to win one of the big jackpots in the Florida Lottery such as Fantasy 5, Mega Money, Lotto or Powerball. To increase my chances of winning a big jackpot I would have to eliminate Cash 3 and Play 4. So I will have the extra cash to focus on the bigger jackpots.

    I hope you catch a nice chunk of Florida change Win$500quick.

    I myself would like to win a raffle, I play them everytime, just once I'd like to see my number on the screen.

    good luck in 2011.

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

              I started 2011 off on the right track. I did not play any Cash 3 or Play 4. Got to focus on the big jackpots.

                I've played the lottery haphazardly over the years, however I just recently got more serious, which is one of the reasons I just joined LP.

                Right now, my plan for 2011 is to buy more tickets on the smaller jackpot games and less on the big ones. I am going to put less focus on PB, MM, and Lotto, and more toward Cash 5 & Match Play. With a 1/175,000,000 chance of winning the MM jackpot, even 10 tickets per game is still a whopping 1/17,500,000 chance. Throw in Powerball and Lotto, and it can get costly trying to win games that are astronomically stacked against players.

                On the other hand, with Cash 5, there is a 1/200,000 chance of winning the $20,000 jackpot. The same 10 tickets reduces those odds to 1/20,000. Far more reasonable and realistic.

                In addition, with Cash 5, one has good chances of getting smaller money back. 4 #'s nets $1000, 3 nets $10, and even 2 nets a buck. After looking at the history with various combinations in Cash 5, over a long period of time one could win more often and get a lot more back with the $1, $10 and $1000 prizes, all while having a reasonable shot at nailing the $20,000 grand prize. Seems like it is more difficult to get money back and cut your losses with the big games.

                So, I'll still play my numbers on the big games but, I'd rather to put the extra money and focus toward the more reasonable chance of winning $20,000 with Cash 5, or $100,000 or more with Match Play (currently $579,000).

                I intend to keep track of this to see how I do.

                  the last 2 times nc had a lotto most of the winning numbers were drawn from the extended time frame.... lesson learned (for me) for next time...

                      would be nice if this year my familyu syndicate wins the $8k required to fund itself for ever more.

                      small goal, and hoipefully achievable. then ill just pull the interest  out the bank once a month and buy tickets with it.

                       

                      of course i wont complain if we win bigger say 1 or 2 mill between us, but $8k to start would be a good 2011

                      2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

                      keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

                        My plan is keep on losing and support the lottery. They don't build the lottery on winners.... :-)

                        I think that they should name the lottery after me for all the support that I have provided...

                          I would love to match Mega Millions 5+0 (no mega number). It's (usually) a six figure win (parimutuel in Cali; I just skimmed the past couple dozen drawings and I see it as low as ~$84,000 and high as ~$900,000). Doesn't really warrant as much publicity as the whole jackpot would. It's definitely enough to get a nice apartment all to myself and have a nice financial cushion

                            To win the Louisiana Cash 5  1 time when its over $250,000.00 and Louisiana Lotto  2 times when its over $500,000.00 and still play the pick 3 and pick 4 games.

                            I believe it can be done
