Ok.

We have the Daily Number, Big 4, Quinto, Cash 5, Match 6 and Treasure Hunt.

We have Instant tickets.

We have the Millionaire Raffle twice per year.

BORING.

(yes...we have PB and MM...but who cares?)

I see Connecticut has introduced a new game - 5 Card Cash. That sounds fun.

PA used to bring us fun games. I do like Match 6...Cash 5 they changed the amount of balls used, so the odds got worse,

Quinto seems easy but isn't, Treasure Hunt...well, starts at $10k and so what there too.

PA GET WITH IT...INTRODUCE SOMETHING FUN AND EXCITING.

    NYL is also boring. I'm lucky to be 5mins from CT and that's where most of my lotto money goes.

      wow, I'd like to be on another state line to drive over quick and spice things up with new games. PA really is getting to be

      bad. The instants come out every month but it's same old, same old but different color paper, that's about it.

        I'm jealous of some of your games. Yes Nod I want a pick 4 and the Quinto and our own state Pick 6 would be cool. I don't know what treasure hunt is.

        We have Pick 3 and Weekly Grand (Pick 5) which are our own games and then we have Hot Lotto, Wild Card,  Powerball and Megamillions. Which are multistate games.

        But we're not a big state so I guess that's why we don't get a big variety.

          It's not that exciting in my neck of the woods either!

          Missouri's new $250K Triple Play they introduced recently seems like an interesting game to me.

            I did a survey for the Idaho Lottery not too long ago where they were asking about several different new draw games.  One was an All or Nothing type game, but I don't remember the deets on the others.  Unfortunately, the price of each was FIVE DOLLARS (gasp) and some drew several times per day.  My answer to each of their suggested new games was that the game sounded interesting, but no way would I pay $5 for a draw game where the top prize was only a couple hundred thou.

              $5???  Completely and utterly insane. 

              I'm already bitching about our Daily Derby draw game which is $2 per play.  I'm only playing a line per day right now because the grand prize is $375,000 and it rolls $6,000-$9,000 per day until there's a grand prize winner.

                No way would I play a 5.00 draw game. I'm ok with paying that or more for a raffle ticket that comes out twice a year, but not for a regular game.

                  I like the treasure hunt.

                  It starts at 10K, but I like ten grand in my pocket.

                  Also I have seen it roll to 80k many times, so i dont mind that so much in my pocket either.

                  Scratchoffs?

                  I only love them if the latex covering tastes like chocolate.

                    But we're not a big state so I guess that's why we don't get a big variety.

                    I remember when Quinto came out. The possibility and supposed ease of winning was a thrill, it didn't seem like it would be

                    hard to hit. It was refreshing to see a new game for us and I was eager to play. I got a few hits on it but after time, it lost

                    its glam and seemed to be harder to hit and at $1 to play each way - straight and boxed, it could really add up. They do it

                    for 2 drawings also..day and night. I scan the results often and don't find any number combos I would go with..so I just let

                    it go most times. Sometimes I'll throw a zip code in but most times it's a strike out.

                    Treasure Hunt is a pick 5 of 30 game. I'll play when it gets over $100k which isn't too often but it does happen.

                    Everyone can come up with 5 birth dates to play..it's getting all 5 drawn where the problem lies lol. Matching 4 numbers

                    in the Treasure Hunt only wins $100...matching 3 only wins $6.00, matching 2 wins $1.00. This game is a $1 per line.

                    Wow, you do not have a pick 4? Pick 4 is difficult but I'd miss it if we didn't have it.

                    Most of our games are twice per day...Daily Number, Pick 4 and Quinto...Treasure Hunt is daily. Cash 5 is also and Match

                    6...which I do enjoy (you get 3 lines for $2 and there are chances to win across a straight line or within the 3 line block)

                    is twice per week.

                    PB and MM they can give them back, I don't like them at all.

                        dr65 stay away from Oklahoma lottery all we have is Pick 3, Cash 5, Hot Lotto, Mega & Powerball. Scratchers range from $1-$5 top prize $30,000-$40,000. And they wonder why lottery sales are down.
