What is good to get?   If I were to buy lets say 10 $1 tickets, would that give me a winner depending on the ticket that is out?

 

Same goes for $3 tickets and $5 tickets.

 

Fedback appreciated.

    Someone told me a long time ago that it's best to buy ten tix at a time. I listened to them and actually broke even (for two years!) before I moved to ny. In fact a lot of my big wins have come from buying 2-10 at once. It doesn't always work, of course. In general, I recommend big tickets. If you're in it to win. If you just like playing, threes are fun.

    2 - super scunion | 1 - quad scunion | few - triple scunion | 2 - super funion | some - double scunion | 1 - triple funion | lost count - scunion/funion

    $1 - FTY | $2 - HUN | $3 - ZTF | $5/ $10 - FVH | $20 - UKA (playbook - HUN) | $25 - TVO | $30 - FTY

      Too often the $1 tickets (out of 10 in a row) have 9 losers and 1 winner, and that winner is often small. The losing zones are bad on all PA tickets though, so if you must spree, do it on $1 and $2 tickets. The rest are too risky in my experience.

        I know someone who only buys $10 $20 or more expensive tix a lot, he told me serial # ending with 8 is lucky.

          Really.  I know for a fact when you buy the lottery tickets here in Philadelphia it tells you how many sold.  Never heard of that one.
