Didn't see a current forum for it so thought I would start one.  Something to do while PB and MM jackpots build up. Smile

    I play the game rarely. I probably have given it more looks than I have PB. I think the best I did this year was I maybe got 2 or 4 dollars back from it. It was a little while back so I don't remember it exactly.

    i just don't like the 2 dollar ticket idea so much. Considering the odds and how the payouts are done, I disagree with 2 dollar wagers.

      I won $25 a couple of weeks ago.  Usually get $4 to buy more tickets.

          Has the game expanded to new states since launch or is there any plans to expand?

            Hadn't heard of any more states--just the ones listed in the first post are on their website.

              I love reading the quick stories on the lucky for life website about some of the past winners. One gentleman on there from the northeast US had bought multiple plays and it was the very last play which won the jackpot for him. I thought that was neat.

                I play it every draw...a week or so ago I won $209! I had 3# and the lucky ball and  2# and lucky ball twice and some lucky balls....It's my favorite game....hope to win the big one....it would be life changing without the excessive jackpot headaches....

                  We don't have it in Indiana. Don't know if I want it in Indiana with the terrible jackpot odds.

                    I believe Colorado,  Wyoming,  and West Virginia  are supposed  to have it this  year

                    The  most I've  won is $28

                    2 numbers on  lines a and b plus the lucky ball on line a, had the 5 numbers  been on the same  line, I would've  won 5000

                      Yes, it launched in NE states.  It expanded to Idaho among others a year ago or so.  Their website is awful to navigate.  Most games you can find out easily when it started in each state.

                      I don't know if they will be expanding again or not.

                      I have a ticket for almost every draw.  Most I've won is $20 IIRC.  You only have to match 2 white balls to win which sounds easier than it turns out to be.  But I win more on LfL than on the other $2 game, Powerball.

                          North Carolina joined in on the action Feb. 8th this year and I have played every single drawing since. I try to study and play what I think is good to play. I have won several 3 and 4 dollar hits. A couple of 7 dollar hits. I think I have hit 20 dollars ( just 3 white balls , no lucky ball ) twice and once I have hit 25 dollars ( 2 white balls and  the ball ) once. So mad cause one time I wrote down a draw I wanted to play and didnt go to the store that night and it hit 3 white balls.

                          but as with all ball draw games in state lotteries in America, you are constantly fighting the " cheating " and advantage or edge that they have. I'm referring to the pre-draws which they don't post so that screws you up of course.

                          It's the repeats that get me too. they tend to throw me a curve ball.

                          would love to exchange ideas and hear from others on here who like playing the game regularly.

                          Thanks !

                              I hit 3 white balls Monday night .... had the 6 - 18 - 43. won $ 20.00 for it. Won $ 4.00 by getting the LB on another ticket so won a total of $ 24.00.

                              Spent $ 16.00 overall so came out ahead 8 bucks. I have some ideas for tomorrow night. we'll see what happens. GL to all of us !

                               

                              3 -6 - 17 - 18 - 43  +  9 = 20.00

                              3 - 6 - 17 - 18 - 43 9     4.00

                               

                              Rant  I felt good about 17. Almost played it.  grrrr ....
