Hi, Zap. Through a sharing agreement, the Iowa Lottery utilizes the Hoosier Lottery's drawing results for our Pick 3 and Pick 4 games. However, you correctly note that the Iowa Lottery's Pick 3 and Pick 4 games do not include a Super Ball number, whereas the Hoosier Lottery's games do. This is because Iowa's games have their own rules, game play and odds. And, the Iowa Lottery and Hoosier Lottery are separate entities. The only thing they have in common is the sharing of numbers (the first three for Pick 3, and the first four for Pick 4) for these particular games.

Why can't iowa find a pick 4 game and pick 3 that plays like iowa ticket game. You quit using illinois because the game was only being aged half the way ours was and players complained. So iowa is now using Indiana game for ours and the same thing. Indianas game is not played like ours and again another state that uses 5 balls in their pick 4 games in which is screwing the iowa players every game. There are in fact over 15 states that play these games using only 4 balls why can't iowa use a state game that is played the way our ticket game is played or start using the same 5 balls Indiana is using and change our play tickets to match the game you are using its one way or the other but to the players it's cheating on the lottery side because everyday the game is played that extra ball plays a factor in what your players will play for their numbers for the next draw. Today should have been 1650 instead Indiana gives us 5650 extra ball 1= bullcrap

Congrats to all! I played 5555 the evening before. A $5 bet for $30,000. I was a day late and $30,000 short lol. Woo-Hoo for you all.
