Just want a opinion if any one @ LP has contacted their state lottery to let them know how unhappy they way they are running the state lottery--I certainly have and surprise I've receive a letter or two.  Both my dad and I are at a crossroads to decide to keep on playing because we know we can't and won't win all the time but yet we don't want to keep losing all the time as well, especially by one friggin digit!! Lately, we haven't won not even a simple free replay of  2 digits in the Fantasy 5 game. Also, we submitted the non-winning tickets to on-line as well and sometimes I feel it is a waste of my time to keep logging in those tickets and not see any positive results.  However, knowing lottery karma, the mintue we decide to stop playing is the day our numbers will hit big!! So I guess I just answered my own question--GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF THE LP FAMILY TO WIN BIG!!!Party

    Shake things up, Dollar. Do something different. Add a Quick Pick or some new Birthday numbers to your regular numbers. Get 50 lines from the LP Quick Pick machine and go down the list using your intuition until one line jumps out at you, use your intuition when looking at car tags, serial numbers, anything. Sometimes something will jump out at you. Just an extra line is sometimes all it takes to shake things up when you're in a rut.

    Best of luck to you!LepYes NodThumbs Up

        yea, the lottery karma, or maybe its called fate,is why qp is better.i  play a fixed set of numbers on jersey cash 5 and now i'm afraid to miss a day,been playin that set over 10 yrs.although i have got 3 of 5 abt. 15 times and got 4 of 5 abt. a year ago. i feel like i'm stuck w/ these numbers,its like being an addict.and as soon as i don,t play it will hit.so after i hit on these 5 i will play qp only.

          Roll Eyes I've lost count the number of times I've had near misses and could've had the the (big for me) $7-10 winners

          not to mention the freebies  playing both the MM and or PB .......

           

          but as it has been said you got to be in it to win it and inspite of the money tossed into the crapper ..... no one is forcing us to play

          good luck and maybe U and Dad ought to quit for a while

            What would you expect them to do about you being unhappy about not winning?  Would you have them get rid of the jackpot category and make it easier to win one of the lower tier prizes?  Would you even play if there wasn't a jackpot to be won?

              I can't tell you how many times I've wanted to write PA about their scratch-off tickets. Still might, if only for it making me feel better. Of course, right when the letter goes off, I'd probably get a big winner - LOL.

                You should try lottery subscriptions. I could not be bothered buying and checking lottery tickets, and dealing with grumpy store clerks; that is why I only play lotteries by subscription. I play three lotteries, the UK, New York and Massachusetts lotteries. I have not won anything big in any, so far. The UK lottery is my favorite, as it is the most professionally run lottery around. I pay by monthly direct debit and any prizes are credited to my bank account. Yes, you do need a UK bank account to play. They also sent me an email if I win a prize, and I can then log on and see how much. It is usually £5 or £10, but I have won £100 once.

                 

                More state lotteries should have subscription services, they would be popular and raise more much-needed revenue. The UK lottery has raised billions of pounds for 'Good Causes' throughout the UK, and lottery funds are being used for the London Olympics. So, even if I don't win a fortune, I am doing good.

                We all get a lot out of lotteries!

                      Play smaller games that has better odds. Save the million dollar games for later when you have won some from smaller ones. Or when the jackpot is at all time high. Do your fishing at smaller pond that has more little fish than at an ocean for one huge fish.

                        Look at it from a positive point of view! You would be assisting three jurisdictions, helping to raise additional revenue!

                          All  games regardless of their odds of winning pay back 50% of sales in prizes so while some games have better odds for winning their top prize, their top prizes are smaller.  If you look on the prediction board for the top life time winners percentages, they are similar for jackpot and pick3 game players.  There are no real easy wins in any of the lottery games.

                            Dollar419,

                            I e-mailed the Illinois lottery about the new monitors that show winners names, photos, and amounts won on what kind of ticket (includes scratchers) as being a real bad move.

                            Every reprobate that goes into a liquor store will know who won what in their town.

                            Brilliant.

                            I never did get an answer.

                            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.
