I want to start playing lottery but I have some questions even after read the offical sites and wiki.

1) Is megamillion and powerball multistate? ( 1 winning number set for all states). Does it matter where I buy it?

2) What other popular multistate lottery are there?

 

Thanks in advnace.

      Yessir, MM & PB are multistate games. If you match the 5 balls and the extra ball, you hit the jackpot. It does not matter where you buy your ticket for these multistate games. The only problem is you can only cash your winning tickets in the states you bought them from.                                                                                               The most popular Multistate games are Powerball, MegaMillions, Hot Lotto.

          Yes, only one winning number set is drawn for all states.

           

          Hot Lotto is the only other multi-state that has fairly high jackpots that I'm aware of, but it's only sold in a handful of states and I don't think NY is one of them.

            Remember, you have to cash your tickets in the state where they were bought.

             * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                Welcome Fishy, as a few other members said Hot Lotto is a top multi state game after PB and MM. I like it cause it's only played in small population states and JP winning odds are 1 in 10.9M. It also uses a random number generator to draw the winning numbers unlike the other big multi-states that use the mechanical drum and ball technique. I've personally had better success in identifying patterns and trends with the RNG game and have won the lower tier prizes more frequently than the average odds predict. Don't think HL is fesible for you with the closest member state being Vermont, but if I'm not mistaken NY has a 6/49 lotto which offers much better odds than PB and MM and quite often has retirement level JP's.

                 

                Also being fairly new to LP myself I've found the forums to be quite helpful and full of diverse and valuable lotto strategy information. If you're serious about playing the lottery on a regular basis you'll get a lot of helpful tips from the senior members here.

                 

                Good Luck!
