Without a doubt, PA has a heavy hand in creating a believable totally random type atmosphere.
I'm pretty much convinced that random to them means making sure the winnings are evenly dispersed so no one cries
foul. How do you manage a task like that? 6 - 7 million tickets per game, run until all top prizes are awarded or when the
game just expires, sent to how many stores across the state? Tons! and then wind up with a nice tidy winners list
spanning all counties of PA...???? Incredible luck or just plain planning by the lottery commission.
$20 games are easier to win a decent amount on, higher ticket price/chance at better prizes.
The low end games..ie: $1 and $2 are going to have WAY more non-winning fillers and FREE tickets so you get a chance
at another filler/non-winner. From experience....if you get a free and turn it in for a different $2 or $1 game, you'll come
out LOSER. If you turn it in for the next ticket in line, I think roughly 2/5 times you'll get a back to back winner.
As far as ticket NUMBERS go...there are ones to watch...$20's are 000/005/006/010.....018-022, then 025, 027, 028, 029
016 on Diamond Dazzler has been good to me in the past so has 011 on that game (by good I mean $100..5x ticket price is
fair, anything below that is a no win teaser, they want you to turn it back in)
$5 games #'s around 10 and 40 and 51 have been okay.
$10 games 000, 001/020/021 and....058/059.
$3 games...pick whichever you want, they all suck.
$2 for me, 140+ up to 149...plus any ticket ending in 6...006, 016, 026, 036 etc..
$1 games LMAO.....take your chances in sets of 10 at least.....the winner can be ANYWHERE....but there are some nice ones
out there....$50 for a $10 investment isn't bad at all considering if you bought ONE $10, you'd probably lose and buy the same
10 and you're at $100...just dumb imo.
I don't know how many tickets you buy at a time of the STRIKE IT RICH.....I hope it's at least 2 and if you have a winner, I'd suggest
buying the next one too then stop. If the next is a winner, go for the 3rd ESPECIALLY if it's HOT 100's you're playing. Don't let those
FREE's turn you off....I've gotten $100's after stinky FREE tickets enough to know they like to print them like that...who knows why??
$20 tickets are going to be where your money is at more often....BUT you can't go all out UNLESS you know you can. Don't get pulled
into feeding ANY one machine or counter - another word for it: CHASING.....learn to walk away if it's a losing day. I've seen people
do that and GET PIZZED and storm out only to have a person come up after them and win. I don't watch hawks, they make me
uncomfortable (the uncontrolled part of it is disturbing...feed, punch the button, scratch, toss and start over again...same outcome:
walk out in a huff with no money) I can't stand their nervous chatter either....they talk too much cause they're nervous & they spend
too much. Leave me alone and everything is A-OKAY. Freaks is what a lot of them are...looking over shoulders and asking what you're
Where they got the idea that it's a cooperative venture is frigging beyond me....my best piece of advice: don't talk to them and what
does THAT have to do with winning??? It keeps them in the dark and prevents them from buying the next 20 tickets of the same one
YOU DIDN'T win on...therefore, leaving you a shot at another time/day...ex: if you don't win on 5, they'll buy up the next 10 knowing
a winner is there somewhere. Don't tell them what you won or didn't....then they leave it alone and stay in the dark unless they insist
on breathing down your neck..then just tell them BACK OFF and LEAVE ME ALONE. It works.
Stick with one game if you want but expanding your playing field within a certain denomination increases your chances of snagging
something worthwhile..just think, if they didn't use your particular area to even out things, you'll never get a top prize on that ONE
game. Best play is playing different $2's IMO...but if you like the game, keep at it, there are lower decent prizes. If you happen
upon a TOP PRIZE in the meantime, BRAVO AND HAPPY SPENDING!!
Good luck to you, we're always looking for a good winner here....best wishes for a super prize!!
Whether you want to play just one or multiples, keep track, play smart and know when to leave. Record numbers and outcomes
for your area, you'll see a pattern about every 2 or 3 months or so.....these stinking tickets cycle and they DON'T DO IT THEMSELVES.
Funny how most people accept the entities version of - RANDOM.
Yeah, and there's a sucker born every minute too...
I don't believe they distribute the winners to just higher income communities because if you've seen the stats it seems that a lot
of low income people play and these winners of course are popping up in high end communities but also in poor communities
where people can't afford lottery much less a gallon of milk...I think they'd choose the lottery ticket over the milk most times
though and lottery knows that.
