              OK great! 

              But what's a "Play Pack"?  I haven't found a NY Lottery player yet that has even heard the term much less bought one. I think that was the point DetroitLionBoy was really getting at. He said in his post he's never heard of a "Play Pack".  G5

              Players who've won large lottery jackpots have something in common. Many of them say "I've played the lottery for years, but I never won anything but small prizes."   That's normal or typical, but it's also why you should not get discouraged and stop playing.  Who knows?  Maybe someday you'll say "I've played the lottery for years...."

                It's right on the ny lottery homepage, but apparently they did a rather poor job of advertising it.

                  It's the same group of Jackpot Games less Cash4Life.

                    The Acme store in Patterson has it built into its machine. The problem is you can't add the MM multiplier or pb powerplay.

                        Ok, GOTTA ask - Are you a New York Lottery employee?  You seem to be promoting this in a way that the marketing department would.

                          Thumbs Up When you ask the Clerk for the Play Pack: The Clerk pushes the Play Pack button on the Lottery Terminal: The Lottery Terminal automatically prints out the Quick Picks: You pay your $5 and go!

                            If I am playing  a "Play Pack"  for a C4L quick pick, why would I want to double up with a C4L initial QP purcchase??

                              You hit the nail on the head.  But I would say they did an EXCEEDINGLY "rather poor job of advertising it".

                              Its not the first time.  They did a poor job of advertising one of their last promotion where that random QP that was randomly selected, was randomly revealed to

                              random patrons, and most likely you did not know you would get it, but could get,

                              was more likely than not, stolen by your friendly neighborhood Patel.
