I'd vote Pick 3. What is disappointing is many of the losses are by ONE number!!!

My greatest accomplishment is teaching cats about Vienna Sausage. When I need a friend, all I need do is walk outside, pop open a can, and every little critter in the neighborhood drops by to say "Hi!"

                  I can't really say losing at any lottery game I play bothers me too much at all.

                  What does bother me a little bit is seeing my numbers come up in a game I don't play, stopped playing or forgot to play.

                  That makes me want to hurt people.

                  And break things.

                        The winning numbers for this drawing was 4365 and the payout was $5,033, so I would have won $10,066 or $7,046.20 after taxes which would have been really helpful.

                          Definitely pick 3. The worst!

                          Pick 3 and Pick 4 are the only CA Lottery games that I have spent several hundred and never won anything back from: zero, zip, zilch! I only play to maybe hit a straight once and then will never play them again.

                          On Daily 3, I've had the right number several times, but missed it by a day, either was going to play next day, or skipped a day. In total missed out on about 4 straights and 6 box hits by a day. So by my very poor lottery karma on pick 3, I'll probably have to wait till I spend a couple thousand dollars before I get a straight hit.(twice the odds) Wake me when its over...

                          I'll stick with Scratchers and Fantasy 5 most of the time, and also regular plays on Jackpot lotto games.

                              My state doesn't have P3 or P4, so I don't know about those, however I'd think with the odds being so low that it would be an easier game to win than the 5's and 6's. In any case, I think the most frustrating is our 6/42 Lotto. You can play $50 a draw consistently and just get one, two, or three 3/6's if you're lucky for a $3 to $9 win. If you're really lucky every once in a great while you can nail down a 4/6 and get maybe $35 to $50. That's got to be the worst. On cash 5, at least I can get a good portion of my money back.

                              Give someone a fish and feed them for a day. Teach them to use the internet and they won't bother you for weeks.
