haha, okay. I thought it would be a semi-decent idea to have a thread, much like the "roll up the rim" thread where people could post their winnings and bad beats lol

A-A-8-8-4 . $2. beat it!

(running +/- total = -$4)

Sorry, Ed, but I spend $$$ on the Lotto Max at work (because I do not want to wake up one Monday and be the sole employee in this country), and only buy the occasional personal lotto tix when the jackpots get huge. Other than that, the government leeches get enough of my cash already without me giving them more of it.

But one of my employer's major customers is the company that produces 60-70% of the scratch and win tix sold in Canada, including all the OLG ones, LottoQuebec, and the Atlantic provinces. Thanks for keeping me employed.

I'm with you on the first point. I never, ever turn down a pool at work for the very reason that you stated. The 2nd point though, I'm complete opposite on. You're not the only one though. I know several people that won't play until the jackpot is huge but the way I look at it is, whatever the jackpot is on any given 6-49 or lottomax night is WAY more than I have in my bank account, therefore I'd be grateful for even 2 million.

Yeah, but the odds remain the same, so why not get the biggest payout if you DO get lucky? Just saying I'd rather drink a Timmies, but I'll skip one or two when it gets to be really stoopid $$$.

Played it for the first time yesterday, and instantly won a free ticket
w/ 2-K-K-5-3.
The instant win freeplay was K-K-3-5-8, so I won another free ticket, which was
5-K-6-3-J.
Just checked the olg.ca website for tonight's draw (for Monday, Sept.13th) amd it was: K-K-5-6-7

Which means I won $25 x 3 because I matched 3 of 5 cards on all 3 tix.
Sick!

I think the prize payouts could be a little higher.
Royal 5K
Str8 Flush 2k
4 of a kind 1k
boat 500
3 of a kind 100
2 pair 10
1 pr free ticket.
Same as the nightly draw prize payouts could be better
3 0ut of 5 cards only pays 25 bucks 5/5 100k

That is why the OLG's rake for Poker Lotto is over 40%!

Its slots for poker fans. I bought a couple but have no pressing desire to play it. Might toss down a toonie every now and then if it is convenient.

-6 no wins.

-10 no wins

JEEZE ya think they would be smart enough to raise the pay outs and more people would play.
I check daily and it seems only 1 or 2 hit a royal every 2nd day
same as a STR8 Flush.
