Willam: those $30 tickets are tough cookies I was told awhile back to never purchase rolls of ticket. Your odds are better just going from store to store and picking up a few. I have never seen any players not even in the Facebook group successful with buying a roll of tickets

I always complained about not winning anything on the Cash 5 until my buddy DENVER pointed out the odds which are 962,598.0 for the jackpot. It truly is just luck ??

I'm with you. I have been saying for years audit these tickets. I have bought over 20 packs of tickets at least 4- $30 dollar rolls never won more than $450.00 on a $900.00 dollar roll. I hope one day there's a players roll with truly stated odds.

Cash 5 being either-or would see what the people like and maybe eventually become one...

Just a thought... The Cash 5 become an either or and not must buy one to play the other.

Curious if anyone reported this to the Attorney General’s office. The odds are thrown out the window when games are reordered or games are collected early. There is no transparency in the state lotto system.

Totally agree with Tony's comment below. They first pick up the lotteries, and then announce they are going to end soon. Why they not announce first and then start picking them up? They should devise some other strategy, that allows players to play the lottery till the last day it is ending. Does not make sense to pick them up 2 months in advance, when there is a top prize remaining.

I have been playing for the second chance For some time now never won anything

always disappointed to see many tickets end that have big prizes left just when the odds get good to actually win SOMETHING.
