Louisiana Lotto – GAME CHANGE

LOTTO NEWS: Louisiana Lotto is making some changes. This pick-6 lottery game has added 2 numbers to become a 6/42 game and remains $1 per play. The jackpot will double from $250,000 to $500,000. The odds of winning a Lotto jackpot will increase to 1 in 5,245,786. Overall odds of winning a LA Lotto prize are 1 in 34.4.

Game Change Stats

If you use Smart Luck lottery strategy software for Louisiana Lotto games, the same Advantage Gold lotto strategy program will work for this game. All you have to do is download the new history file (directly or with Lottery Updater – reselect the file in favorites if you use that option since it is a new file name). The file still includes the history for the old format, but once there is enough history with the new format, we will lock the game range to exclude the old drawings (which you can choose to use or not yourself). The old game file will no longer be updated.

Similarly, the same pick-6 wheels from Wheel Six Gold lottery wheeling software or FFWG will still work for this game.

New Jersey Cash 5 GAME CHANGE

New Jersey Cash 5 made some changes to its format starting with the June 29, 2020 drawing. The game is now a pick-5 out of 45 numbers (up from 5/43 previously) with odds of one in 1,221,759 (up from previous odds of one in 962,598), and a starting jackpot of $100,000 (up from $75,000).

Canada Max (Lotto/Western/Quebec) GAME CHANGES

Canada has made changes to their LOTTO MAX games. Lotto Max, Quebec Max, and Western Max have added another number to the format. Numbers will be drawn from a range of 1-50. Drawings will now be twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays.

The maximum LOTTO MAX jackpot will increase to $70 million! Additional MAXMILLIONS draws will continue to kick in once the jackpot reaches $50 million. Two new prize categories (5 of 7 +Bonus and 4 of 7 +Bonus) will be added. The price of LOTTO MAX tickets will remain the same.

We have made new game files to reflect the updated number format. Note that you will need to download the new files, as the old ones will no longer be updated – they cannot accept numbers greater than 49 without file property changes. If you use Favorites in Lottery Updater, you will need to go to change your favorites to select the new files.

Florida Jackpot Triple Play NEW GAME

Florida Jackpot Triple Play 6/46 is Florida’s newest pick-6 Lotto game which replaced the old Lucky Money game in February 2019. Because you get 3 plays for a dollar, they claim the odds per ticket are one in 3,122,273. (Florida Fantasy 5 is a much better bet.) You choose six numbers from 1 to 46 to play and there are no bonus or powerball numbers drawn in this game. A second and third set of numbers will be automatically generated for you to give you your triple play. For an extra chance to win up to $10,000 by combining winning number matches from all three sets of numbers, pick the Combo box for $1 more. Drawings are held twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays.

The jackpot starts at $500,000 and can roll over to up to $2 million if there isn’t a jackpot winner. Once the jackpot reaches $2 million, and there is no jackpot winner, the excess money in the jackpot prize pool rolls down and increases the payouts on all of the lower-tier prize levels each drawing until the jackpot is won.
