    I'm still working on my options.... lol.

    $76. is a huge pile of money for 38 lines and I have not even settled on a new bonus number.

    I feel like a disenfranchised lottery player now that I understand 3+1 will only pays $100.

                The last time I skipped PB I had the correct bonus number, so I played "a Donald"... just to be safe.

                  Guessing the PB number at 1:35 is a lot easier than guessing the five white balls numbers at 1:5,006,386.

                  And at two dollars a ticket, it would cost $100,000 to play 1% of the five number combos. I've been looking at ways to apply some of the strategies discussed in this thread to KY's Cash Ball, but without matching one of the 31 bonus numbers, I can't find a good betting strategy.

                  I'm convinced anyone with enough funds could show a small profit playing 5000 MM combos using a 4 if 4 wheel every drawing without matching the bonus number, but probably not playing PB.

                    I agree Stack, 

                    I would play the 4 if 4 of 28 every draw on MM, but wont play more than 5 -10 lines any longer on PB.

                    I was embarrassed of spending $50. the other night on PB when I turned the slip over and realized I would only be getting $100. for a 3+1 match.......

                        There is a 3 if 5 of 28 LP wheel that is 94 lines that I may start experimenting with.......

                          I skipped playing PB tonight and played the 10 lines I posted on the prediction board for Ohio's Classic Lotto and it paid off.  I won't be collecting the $100 posted on the prediction board but $70 instead. 

                          I'm thinking about playing 10 lines for Rolling Cash5 tomorrow since it's at $330K using the same strategy I used for OCL tonight.

                            People with those kinds of funds aren't interested in making a small profit gambling on a lottery game, they have better ways to make a small profit spending that kind of money.

                            I believe some ideas mentioned earlier in this thread could be the basis of a better strategy if more time was spent fully exploring them.
