I haven't bought a single ticket in that game, nor do I think I will.  I used to play the stupid 6 and the keystone before that.

I'm wondering if anyone plays Match 6, and whether PA is making any money on that game.

    I play one ticket per draw... at $2 per game, it's not the most popular one, rollovers are small and when I am in line, I rarely hear people ahead of me ask for a match6 ticket. I would rather have had them add the MUSL's Hot Lotto to the mix... I wouldn't miss the match6.

    Cash5 is wildly popular.

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

        It appear Massachusetts DID NOT create a Match-6 clone with Ca$h Winfall.

              If PA were to bring back Super 7, it would need a cash option.

                I would rather play Match 6 than "Unlucky for Life".

                  Well, since I take some of the blame for getting this going, I guess i better say something.  I like Match 6, way better than Super 6, Super 7 (Absolutely never won on that), and even Wild Card Lotto. (Actually the most I ever wone with 4 numbers + the WC).  Match 6 has the best overall odds (1 in 6) of any on-line draw game.    The new "Lucky for life"  maybe OK, but the odds are longer (1 in 12) than Cash 5 (1 in 9?). 

                  I sort of quit playing Cash 5, my favorite game for a number of reasons, many lack of cash, and better odds on Match 6.  However, I do spring for a couple of tickets if the jackpot goes to $400,000 or better.  I have to admit, as I did on another post, that although I play Match 6 faithfully twice a week, 2 tickets per draw, I just broke a 9 draw drought.  OK, so $12 isn't that much, but it helps til payday.

                  New Kentucky game looks interesting.  Sounds like Lotto re-arrainged.  Can't see Ky. Lottery site here.  Computer police at work banned it.  I don't know why, but so are Va, and Cal.  Go figure.

                  BTW, used to  win powerball, but after 50 drawings, I gave up.  Maybe 1 ticket (PP) when Jackpot > $100,000,000.  Lobng odds of hittting minimum  1 in 36 min. or 1 in 45 if just the red balls.  Yeah I know exact odds, but just approximating here.

                  Good luck to all.

                    You need to go back to Powerball.
