I feel funny about playing on Sunday and rarely do so.  When I have played on Sunday I don't seem to do as well.    Was wondering if anyone else feels odd playing on certain days. BobP

    Ohio doesn't offer any lottery games on Sunday, it a day for resting and shopping.

      Ah, but what would you do if they did?  Can you play in a bordering state? BobP

        BobP, I probably wouldn't play because I seldom play the pick3 or pick4 games and I live in the center of the State so I live at lease 100 miles from any state line.  I use to drive to Michigan to get BigGame tickets when it was $80M+ before MegaMillions came to Ohio and I may drive to Indiana to get some PowerBall tickets this Saturday or maybe Sunday if it over $100M. (I would buy tickets on Sunday,even though the drawing is Wednesday)

          If I remember correctly for the first few years the Pennsylvania Lottery did'nt have any drawings on Sundays. That changed when the Daily and Big 4 was expanded to seven days a week.

          Looking at the payout stats it seens less people play on weekends. The Pa Cash 5 rolls over a lot more on weekends than weekdays.

          I play the lottery on Sundays, but never do any outside yard work. Go figure. I guess out of respect of my neighbors.

              I will play cash 5 on sunday if it's 600k or better, about 75% of my 3/5 matches came on Sunday draws.

              Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

                  Texas doesnt have Sunday play....was one of the "holdout" states for anything done on Sunday except day of rest and church.    Took long time just to get the Lottery voted in here so dont see them going to Sunday play anytime soon.

                    I lot of people focus on whether or not a draw is held on Sunday. What difference does that make if you can buy tickets on Sunday for a draw held on Tuesday or Wednesday, it is still considered playing the lottery on Sunday.

                    By the way, I asked God if it cares if we play on Sunday and it said no.

                    Good luck,
                    Jake

                        i found that rather funny as well.

                        I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                          I would think if someone had a problem playing the lotto on Sunday, then why play at all. Wouldn't God know you were playing the rest of the week? (smile)

                            I know what the 666 is supposed to represent, etc., however thought I might pitch this in....doesnt pertain to the lottery...but does the 666. 

                            Saw a show recently on television on History Channel or one similar to it....that says there is evident to disput that being "the" number.  They said it could possibly be 616.

                              with all that's going on in the world - don't think god cares if we play on sunday - as long as we're decent people all week.
