I frequently play the Indiana Cash 5 game. It is my new favorite game and I enjoy studying the past results. I am not too thrilled about the payouts compared to other states such as Ohio and Pennsylvania. 4 out of 5 gets you 150$ and in Ohio it gets you 300$. Indiana does have a reputation for having a pretty lousy lottery. What are your opinions? Am I just being too greedy?

    I think NY payout should be more money.

      Illinois is so-so, Missouri is pitiful.

      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.

        I wish I lived in Massachusetts or closer, I would probably play lotto more. My lottery has a better payout than some states but not good enough IMO

        If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
        If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

          Indiana is horrible in their payouts look at the Hoosier Lottery the payout on that game for the jackpot is terrible.

            MA does well in most games payout apart from pick 4. I have seen the payout for straight match drop to $3,200 for $1 bet. Dead I don't play that game.

            That money's gone fo ever

              Why are you complaining about payouts here instead of complaining to your states governing body that determines payouts? if you don't like the payouts don't play the game!

                UK lottery 6/49 payouts are becoming laughable vs cost to play.

                      I Agree!

                      Most states have pick-4 games and the payouts are $2500 for a 50 cent bet. And a few states have games paying $100,000 for a 50 cent wager.
