     I live in Pa also and I would say the numbers. The scratch off I find is a waste of money. I can buy 5 scratch off tickets at one time and not get a winner. I buy quik picks on the different games and win something. Nothing big yet.

       I think sometimes it may depend on which scratchoffs you get. Seems they're phasing out the $1 ones,which I don't think I ever hit. I know someone who hit the $2 ones for like $20 once. I also wondered if quick picks would hit better than playing the same number all the time.

         Most I hit on Scratch off was $30. I do Quik picks on the new 6 game. I usually pick my daily number and miss by one number. I am playing 152 and 289 right now. Off and on I play the 4 pick and miss it by one number also. I do not like the twice a day draws. Sometimes I only play for the eve and the number comes out day.

           You must have lady luck on your side because I play quick picks alot and hardly get one number nevermind missing by one. Only time I miss by one is when I play the pick 3 sometimes.

              I don't live in PA but I would have to say play the numbers. In Wisconsin we have a 5/31 daily game where the odds are 1:169,000. The jackpot has gotten up to $308,000 and the average jackpot is probably around $50,000 or $60,000. I look at some of the scratch-offs and see the odds on some of those are 1:400,000 and higher and the top prize is $20,000 or $30,000. My advice is to play the numbers if you have something similar in PA. The odds are lower and the jackpots are higher and with a Pick 5 game you have control over the numbers you can pick. Scratch-offs are totally dumb luck and you have no control over what is on that ticket.

                            To some degree maybe. My ex used to work at a store that sold scratchoffs and she supposedly kept track of how many were bought before someone hit...get the idea?

                      Well that would help if you worked at a place that sold scratch-offs and you could keep track of the number of winners and the frequency, but that would exclude about 95% of us because most of us don't work at those places.

                        "Is odds that important for winning?"

                        You need me to answer that. Of course the odds matter. You think Powerball would have jackpots over $100 Million if the odds were 1:400,000? It wouldn't because it would be much easier to win. What is easier to hit, a lottery where the odds are 1:135,000,000 or 1:400,000????? You don't need me to answer that.

                          no,its you that misunderstood.I meant we dont need to win the jackpot instead of a 5+0 WINNER(=200,000$ PRIZE).over 99% of the people get trapped here and thats why they will never win by technical analysis.to some extend,quick pick may have a higher chance to make a small winner.
