I'm of to buy my tickets today.

I've come up with a system and today's the day to test/win/fail.

 

You play 5 numbers and play 50 consecutive games for $1 game. It will conclude by this evening so I'll post results here.

    Is this the game they play every 15 minutes? When I lived there, my friend and I played 13-15-17-18-19 every day. We only played 20 draws, at the same time of the day. We hit 5 very often.

      Maybe, but they play every 4 minutes from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. I'll have to check on how your numbers work. What time of the day did you play?

        Ticket purchased, I'm in draws 1805560 - 1805609.  I won't be able to check the results online until tomorrow but I will report in. $50 spent.

          Good luck! I have my plays in for today also. I wish they would do same day updates on Hot spot on the website. Right now they put out the previous day after 3AM the following day.

          I got a good win yesterday, will post that later.

            $50 played, 4 numbers. 50 consecutive draws.

            Won $4. (or lost $46)

            Back to the drawing board.

                Wow, that's really awful...so sorry.

                So you played 4-spot 50 times? Was that only 4 total $1 hits then? That's just bad luck first time. You should have had 2 or 3 times many, 8-12 hits.

                Maybe try with the Bulls-eye option next time. That's the whole thing about playing this month is that with increased prizes for Bulls-eye, your overall return is better.

                If it makes you feel any better, the day after I hit the $199/$40 (4 hits) 20x10-spot big win, the next day I got knocked on my butt with $8/$40,(again 4 hits) but then after that got $25/$40,(5 hits) right about where I should be hitting, but wildly different payouts.

                  Hi

                  Thanks for the consolation  Dunk. Yes it was 4 $1 hits. Pretty bleak.

                  As I mentioned in another thread, my friend is having luck with 3 spots and bullseye. He's won $171 and a bunch of $22 and $26 and $6 this week. He plays about 3 sets of numbers for 3-5 consecutive draws. The better odds with 3 spots give him mad money to play with. He swears by bullseyes so I guess I'll check it out.

                    Does anyone know where you can get a downloadable file of past hotspot numbers similar to the pick 3,4, and fantasy five? It's a real pain trying to build up a database, but that is probably to discourage it.

                      You have to make a public records request. Click the Contact the Lottery link way down at the bottom of the calottery site, and you'll get the email link. They take a while to respond, or maybe its just for me.

                      I also requested that they provide at least a daily download of hot spot data. Some other states provide this. The more people bug them about this, the better. I got some data a long time ago, but really interested in same day or previous day data should be provided for download on website.

                      Sample of data looks like this:
