# any ideas on how to play little lotto?

Hi people,
I am new to this board, so I would like to thanks Jennilyn and MJWinSmith for their freebies. I was wondering if any of you, or any other has done analysis on how to play the little lotto in IL.
Thanks

It's a 5-of-30 lotto game. Three numbers wins. All prizes automatically paid in lump sum.

Thank you for your explanation, but I meant techniques or wheeling systems for hitting the little lotto. It seems that most of the discussion around here is focused on Pick-3 and Pick-4 lotteries. While I find the odds for Lotto and Big Game (now MegaMillions) too high, I wonder if anyone had done any work on developing strategies to win the Little Lotto.

This is only for the Ill Little Lotto 5/30, do not use this wheel for larger games like 5/36. The wheel is weighted toward the front. Write out the numbers 1-30 and under numbers 1-10 write those ten you feel most likely to hit together, under 11-20 write those your believe have some chance, and under 21-30 those numbers with the least chance of coming in. Exchange my numbers for yours in the combinations below. If you can put all 5 of the winning numbers among the first ten you will have at least 2, 4 number winning tickets, 5 among the second ten at least 1, 4 number winning ticket, among the third ten a 90% chance of a 4 number winning ticket and about 10, 3# winning tickets, overall chance about 70% 2, 3# winning tickets with 5 among the first 20 numbers and 70% of 1, 3# winning ticket with 5 among the 30. This last part could be improved, but isn't cost effective to do so. Good Luck.

Bob,
Thanks a lot. I ran a simulation last night (I am not buying tickets this week) and two of my little lotto numbers got 4 out of 5...your system rocks!!!
My suggestion is to use Maybell's charts for the last 20 draws in the case of the little lotto. I did the charts for the last 10, last 20, last 30 and last 100. And the most accurate were the ones for the last 20.
Good luck!!!
