Bought another EZ Match ticket today, did not match any of the numbers. Here are the winning prizes if I would have won, $500, $10, $20, $50, and $10...

I will start a separate thread tomorrow and if anyone plays the new Illinois Lucky Day Lotto game with EZmatch game please post your results whether you win or lose. I wonder if it truly is random???

    ILLotteryman,

    Good idea, I'll be looking for that thread.

    A long time ago there used to be an EXTRA! on Pick 3 and Pick 4, for another $1 for the EXTRA! you would get three or four numbers to match right away - it looke something like this:

    Pick 4

    7222

    EXTRA!

    7   2    1    8

    $1  $2  $5   $10

    The 7 woud pay $1 and the 2 $2 for $3.

    I hit one, played the number 7222 on a Pick 4, everyone matched, and the EXTRA! paid $100.

    Then after that, there was a feature on playslips called Numbers Now. I think it was the same kind of thing but maybe all three or four numbers had to match. The story was that if you matched on Numbers Now when the tickets was scanned it would set off bells and whistles in the terminal and then the Illinois Lottery jingle would play. I asked several different clerks if they'd ever heard the terminal do that and they all said no.

    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.
