I am thinking of playing WI Supercash or pick 5.  Which would give me the best chance of winning?

Supercash pays  4 out of 6  $25.00

                            5 out of 6  $500.00

 Pick 5    pays      2 out of 5    $1.00

                            3 out of 5  $2.00

                            4 out of 5  $50.00

                                    4 out of 5  $50.00




        Super Cash is clearly the better game to work with.  Two plays for a dollar and and divisible by combination size, why a six by six grid would cover all the numbers played down and across.  Sweet game.  BobP
