    Best lottery to win 100,000 21st Oct 19 at 9:28 PM
    Hello. I've just been trying to find which lottery game has the best chances of winning 100,000? Going for hundreds of millions seems pointless: the odds are tiny. At least going for a smaller amount could be life changing with a remote chance of winning.

    This is a money saving site so you're not going to get glowing references for paid for lotteries.

    However this does look a bit like a spam set up post (apologies if i'm wrong)

    Most on here would suggest you stick to the free lotteries/comps
    e.g pickmypostcode in the hope that you win money for nothing

    As suggested free sites are best but also lotto sites usually give the worst return for the actual odds on significant prizes both because the returns are usually skewed in favour of pretty meaningless small prizes and they pay chunks of money to charity.

    As to the Hotpicks advice run a mile from it and I would never trust a site that recommends it

    Hotpicks odds are 834,398 to 1 which pays 350,000 (prize below that is only 13,000)

    A 1 bet on the 49's could return up to 160,000 (most sites pay 150,000) and I believe the odds are under 318,00 to 1

    I suggest you try betting sites which give a higher return on top prizes than lotteries or matches the jackpot prizes.

    In either case its still a long shot. Ur better off becoming a metal detective and finding a hoard of loot.
