Was going through some previous tickets, interesting:

August 2013

- $87 + $26

The +'s came from $1 and $10 Lucky Day Lotto hits and a MM #

Played

Pick 3:   $8

Pick 4:   $2

Lucky Day Lotto: $32

Lotto:  $13

MM      $12

PB: $20

August 2014

-$81  +$2

Pick 3  $8

Pick 4: $1

Lucky Day Lotto: $41

Lotto: $1

MM: $12

PB: $18

No My3, Fireball, Hit or Miss, or EZ Match.

+$26 on $87 played stinks but is probably par for the course on draw games.

+ $2 on $81 played really stinks!

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

    That looks about right Coin Toss- thanks for sharing... at least I know I'm in similar company.

    I avoid EZ Match... only time I regularly used it was during the recent promo and what joke... EZ loss every dang time.  You'd think ya win at least a buck... once?

    Hit or Miss is dismal too... can't seem to hit or miss the broad side of a barn in that game.  Think the game has been out for nearly a year and there's only been 2 or maybe 3 JP winners???  At 28 draws per week, you'd think there would/should be more...

      Romancandle,

      Thanks for replying.

      Even though the top EZ Match prize went from $500 to $5000 I think it makes more sense to throw the other buck at the game itself and not the gimmick.

      I played Hit or Miss twice, with the expected results, $0. Then I just made up a set of 12 numbers and checked them every draw 'on paper' or a month would have been -$8.00.
