You can fine tune your coverage to the most popular parametes that cover 75% of all the combinations, which I usually do.  For the last 2 draws I played 30 lines and I matched the bonus ball twice and matched 3 once, but $13 for $60 is still losing. Today I will travel to Indiana and play 36 lines for 2 draws. Hope I do better this time.

    I could be happy clearing a million after taxes and I definitely would not go back to work. I think I could find other things to do in life.  Do you think there will just be one winner or several? That is, when there is dventually a winner. Good luck tonight.

      Hypersoniq,

      I like your observation of making a living off of 3 balls for 42 tickets.

      would this wheel work:  it's only 20 combination but you could play it twice + 2..  Does that make sense.


      For 25 Numbers In 20 Combinations



      Prize Winning Power

      3 if 3 = 17.34% ... 4 if 4 = 2.373% ... 5 if 5 = 0.226%
      3 if 4 = 57.00% ... 4 if 5 = 10.94% ... 5 if 6 = 1.299%
      3 if 5 = 90.30% ... 4 if 6 = 29.33%
      3 if 6 = 99.38%

          Thanks for sharing, Ken.  I think quite a few of us have done that. In fact, I have heard it quite a few times here lately on the other games. The people that always play the same number; maybe only spending a dollar.  They are so afraid to miss playing it.  And when something happens where they can't get there to play; sure enough it plays.  A very sickening thought.  I would just die if it were a really huge jackpot.

            Do you usually play all those combinations every drawing?  Isn't that too expensive?

            Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings.  They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed.  And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.

            If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!

                    Oh My God    Was that for real?  Well, I supposed he never would have lived that  down.  Which would have been worse?  Living through hell with his wife who never would have forgiven him or shooting himself.  I guess he made his choice.  Hey thanks, Visiondude.  I guess that also shows how some people get so obsessed with winning.

                      although i do not advocate divorce, he should have opted for that instead of shooting himself. geesh. maybe he should have shot her instead and then pled insanity.

                      with good behavior he would have been out in 5-10 years.

                      (i am just KIDDING !!!)



                      he did have "options".

                        Goloto    I got a kick out of that one too.  Especially, the fact that they did it on MY Birthday. So at least someone celebrated that day. lol  Your story had more info than mine.  Loved it.

                        Visiondude    So, do you think the wife would still play the same numbers?
