I love the Mega Millions game but this weekend, my lotto money is going towards NY Lotto for the folowing reasons:

Chance to win the $45 Million Jackpot in NY Lotto on $1 play:  1: 22.5 Milion

Chance to win the $32 Million MegaMillions Jackpot on $1 play:  1:  135.1 Million

    Of course, assuming there is only one winner for the games above.

      Another mistake on my poll above:

      The NY Lotto Jackpot is $50 Million, not $45 as posted above.

      Sorry!

        TAKE FIVE pays much better than NY Lotto.

        Free play by matching just TWO numbers.

          You should have made the poll multiple choice. I plan on playing a few bucks on at least three of the choices.

            Mega,

            Then vote on what you would spend the most on..  I'm sure a lot of people are gonna play few games but I wanted to know if you had a choice on one game, what would it be?

              If you only have $5 - Don't gamble.  On the other hand if you have an extra $5 to entertain yourself then the N Y Lotto would be a good choice, you may get lucky.

              Good luck

                  Asuming in NY they boxed/straight costs 1$ I would the following numbers tonight straight/boxed.

                  187, 127, 281, 147, 184 - potential decent win

                  Or the following 10 numbers boxed

                  178, 127, 128, 147, 148, 478, 278, 247, 018, 158 - potential small win

                  Or buy a six pack of beer - guaranteed win.

                  Good Luck

                    Everette,

                    If only you can actually buy a six pack of beer at the local grocery for five bucks in Manhatten, that would be swell.  Five bucks won't get you far, $7 for a pack of cigarettes for those who smoke. 

                    Therefore, my obvious choice is 10 NY Lotto games for the price of five buckaroos.

                    Or, I can catch the subway to Gary Pappay's for the best NY hot dogs in the world and still have change for few lotto tickets.

                      Good Luck to all NY Lotto Players on tonite's draw.  If no one wins it, expect the jackpot to possibly hit $60M. 





                      Happy Holidays Everyone!

                        Jeeves:

                        I doubt it. More like $55m. I'd rather see it won tonight (LUMP SUM of course) and then everybody stop playing it because the prize return is TERRIBLE.

                          No one won it.  Now, people will continue to play.  I bought $2 worth.  One got a match 3 so I'll get a buck back.  Whoppeeee..  However, I still have to play when the jackpot is $55M with a chance of 1:  22.5 M with a buck.
