Play the lottery without spending a single buck of your hard earned money!
Here's your chance to play the lottery to see what it will take to actually (and finally) get that magical ticket.
The Lottery Simulator let's you buy "quick pick" lottery tickets ("quick picks" are lottery tickets where the lottery machine randomly picks your tickets for you so that you aren't forced to fill out the little boxes on the lottery sheet, holding up the entire line of people at the counter in the quickie-mart store). The Lottery Simulator will pick "quick-picks" for you (the lottery computer picks 6 random numbers for you per ticket). Enter the number of tickets you'd like and click the Play! button. Then, as if by magic, the winning ticket ("winning numbers") are instantly drawn and displayed, along with each of the tickets that you "played" (in the white box). Each ticket played is represented in the white box by the 6 numbers across on each line. If you're confused by the way the tickets are displayed try playing only 2 tickets and it will make more sense to you when you see them displayed. The breakdown of your winning tickets is also displayed for you on the left side of the box. Did you win? Or did you save yourself a lot of money?
How To Read The Results
- The winning lottery ticket is displayed as 6 numbers under the heading "The winning numbers:". These were the numbers drawn from the air-popping-ping-pong-ball lottery drawing machine.
- Your tickets are in the white box. Each row of 6 numbers equals 1 ticket. You could scroll and check to see how many of the winning numbers you got on each ticket but I already did that for you....
- The breakdown: Next to "Number of tickets played" is the number of tickets you bought (virtually, of course). Under the number of tickets is the actual breakdown of how many of your tickets yielded winning numbers. Most state lotteries require you to get at least 3 out of the 6 numbers to win anything (and even then it's only a few dollars).
I have yet to get all 6 numbers on one ticket.
I was fortunate to get 5 out of 6 numbers once and I left it on my computer screen for a week before Windows crashed and I had to reboot my computer. If you think you're going to win the lottery to retire on, think again....
