Is the NY Pick Ten Lottery the worst as far as the odds of winning the $500,000 first prize is concerned? I used to play it but after playing and following the results for a while I find that usually between 3000 to 7000 players wind up splitting between $20,000 and $67,000, the majority winning $4.00 or the lowest amount possible. I remember reading someplace that The worst game to play in Vegas or other Casino cities is Keno which is similar to Pick Ten.

    MM:                                                                                                        I would play Pick 10 over NY Lotto 59 (the prize pool for NY Lotto      is an anemic 40% of sales.)                                                            Other games to avoid include Mass. 6/42 & 6/49 (no cash option in either game) and PA Super-6 (cannot choose all your numbers).
