Just curious about the 5-hit wins achieved over the long run. The question assumes any playing strategy, including quick picks, simple tickets or small wheels (playing with more numbers) or even random combinations. For the poll, any playing strategy up to 20-30 tickets maximum is considered acceptable, however winning via lottery pools is not considered for this poll. The aim is to identify how often players achieve a 5-hit on a 6/49 game by playing their strategy which is affordable to most of us. If the hit was achieved by a quick pick, please pick the relevant choice. The rest of the options is for 5-hit wins achieved by the strategy developed by the player. A 4-hit is not really a worthy choice for the poll, although it is available just for the sake of it, given a 5-hit is not available.

If you want, you can give more detail of the win, i.e. cost to play, maybe the total earnings or anything else you may think appropriate.

If you have something to do, at least do it well...

    I have wasted  too much money on the 649, that I don't even want to buy a ticket some days.

      In 2002 I matched 5 after years of buying 10 tickets per drawing for Ohio Super Lotto Plus(6/49+1) however before retiring I participated in a pool with co-workers almost as long that brought 50 tickets per drawing and we matched 5 three times.

      In 2005 Super Lotto was replaced with Lot'O Play(6/99) for a year which was replace with Classic Lotto(6/49) which I play occasionally and may match 3 once in a when I'm lucky.

        Here is a listing of the Illionois Lotto 6/49 that have 5 of six hitting more than once - Below the first chart.  You will note the first chart contains my combos & patterns for my Group 38 ( which I show in the 2nd chart as lines 3 & 4 ).  When I won my 5 of 6 on 07/13/2011, I played 10 lines for $5.00 - the five numbers that were constant on the card were 03 22 26 30 47  It seem to me at the time was that the odd numbers (those not fitting in) were in the teens. So I played the variable numbers -12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21  one on  each line with the constant numbers.  I won with the winning number 16 22 26 30 44 47.  I still say that by finding & playing combinations & patterns, you will have a better chance of winning.  There are combinations & patterns in all the Games.  Once you find a group you like. Wheel them.

            I matched 5/6 for VikingLottto 6/48  once in 1994 and nothing since.

            But I've hit 6/7 once and 6+Bonus/7 once for the Norwegian 7/34 lottery in the last nine years.

              I agree with you completely because I've won 5/6 3 times in NJ's 6/49 in 2009 doing this exact same thing, problem is that you can be waiting a very long time for those sets to appear (as you can clearly see from your example above).  It is definitely NOT an everyday play.  And yes I know most 6/49 games are twice a week and not everyday, I'm just talking from a strategic sense.  It should be part of a multi-play strategy.

                Does all the above information means you've matched 5of6 more than once?

                I have hit 5 of 6 three or four times over the years. It doesn't happen on a regular basics.  The 2nd chart is just to show that 5 of 6 does hit twice on a regular basics.  40 times out of the last 1,896 drawings thru 07/16/12 in the IL Lotto.  What are the odds of hitting 5 of 6?  Compare the odds to the actual drawings.  Combinations & patterns do form in all the big games.   This is what I was trying to show when I posted my Group 38 in the IL Lotto.  You can go to my Blog to find the combinations & patterns to most of the Major lottery games.  But you do keep on thinking, just one more ball.  Big difference between 1-2K vs 1-2M.  Right now, I am just shooting for 5 of 5 on the Mega Millions & Powerball.  I do play the the Megaplay & Powerplay when I play my numbers.  I will settle for 1 - 2M.   I play only 2 cards on each game, but I feel the numbers I play have the best chances of winning 5 of 5.  Only time will tell for sure .............

                Good Luck & Best Wishes To ALL.....................

                  Not To change the subject - But I just noticed a Multi State Game -  Lucky for Life - Only 38 Games played to date: Here what I found so far.  5/40 + 1/21.

                  If I was playing, which I am not.  Here to the Right, I will list 11 of the 38 games played so far.  Can you guess witch numbers I would be playing?  Also you have to Pick a Lucky Ball 1 out of 21.  Can you guess which Lucky Ball I would pick - Hint -it's the one that hit 4 times already.  Combinations & Pattens are the key to winning any Major Jackpot game.  It will not happen over night.  But the chances will be in your favor.

                    Hello, but I agree with standards, there are patterns in nature, our life and also the lottery,  But, as is the table you can see patterns and distances and sequences of digits =  Example only terminations 0-9 sequences = 2,3,4 or 5,6,7 or 6,7,8 etc.  No matter the order of the position x = 8 can this in the 1st position as last digit  See if nude drawing 49/6, the value of the same sample distance = distance group 4 enduas times, good will have to make the graph to see the group of distances, and see if sequences of distance

                        Just thinking of the options, I think now that this "A 5-hit or more every 1-2 months within last year" is too much to be applicable by any player when playing only a few bucks. Perhaps this should be "Three or more 5-hits within last year" so if you are in this situation you can select this option. Obviously not everything is covered by the poll, so if there are more 5-wins over the last years, but not within the last year, the 2nd option should be selected and a post to clarify this would be good.

                          The way some players talk about hitting 5of6 in a 6/49 game, it easy to get the impression that they consider it normal to match 5 several times a year even with a modest playing budget.  I find it hard to even match three playing 20 lines most of the time.

                            If there are such players who can match 5/6 a few times in a year when playing a few bucks I'd like to hear about that, even if they don't post something to protect themselves (not everybody wants to share such a success easily), so this is why I made this poll so to be anonymous if they wish so.

                              I don't have a 6-49 but a 6-44.  I don't play this game much but over the last 10 to 12 years I have hit

                              5of6 maybe 5 or 6 times.  Hit  several of 4of6 and all kinds of 3of6.  My 6-44 plays 2 lines for a dollar 

                              or I would not play it at all.  I can imagine what it would be like trying to hit a 6-49 with almost 14 million

                              to one odds.  Certain aspects of my 6-44 are easier to hit than my 5-39 but the 3of6 pays a free ticket

                              which to me is not worth the paper it's printed on.  I can't remember ever hitting a 6of6 even when  playing

                              on paper.
