Anyone have a good method to share to maximize wins?

I am trying to figure out the best cut off in the number of tickets (numbers played).

What is your maximum nunber of tickets you should play?

If I have a list of 10 numbers it makes sense to buy 10. If I have a list of 50, I'm more hesitant to play.

Pick 3 Payouts
Straight 1.00 bet = \$500.00 payout
Box only \$80.00+

Pick 4 Payouts
Straight \$1.00 bet + \$5000.00 payout
Box only \$200.00+

Any productive commets are greatly appreciated.

Nice post Charles. I don't play the smaller games very often, but on the jackpot games (with current matrix) I think the minimum would be 20 numbers and 28 is BETTER.

Its OK to pick 1 or 2 lines form a set of 28 if that's all you can afford.

More lines are always BETTER when it comes to getting BETTER ODDS.

Which one?  The top amount or the least amount?  Or maybe the amount you're hoping to win?

Yep, and it's a very good strategy providing a good bankroll, strategy, and patience are also available. Hard to beat when applied correctly.

Small games, frequent wins, and regular payouts 'cause.....

The best betting practice that I believe in is to always add the PowerPlay/MegaPlier feature. Its already tough to win so you want to maximize your winnings by adding a dollar. PB second prize is \$2M when powerplayed. That is some serious bread even after taxes. Go for the bonus, always!

That money's gone fo ever
