Kansas Lottery - Improve Your Odds
Use this guide to determine when to play a specific game in the Idaho lottery.  This page focuses on the odds of playing any particular game and what I call the "Expected Value" to determine when is the best time to play.
Kansas
Based on the odds of playing the Kansas Powerball, the Jackpot should be at least $161,134,919 before you consider playing.  I do not recommend playing Powerball games because the odds are far too astronomical for you to affect. Note that you can also add to your potential winnings by choosing the powerplay option but this does not increase your odds of winning.
Hot Lotto Sizzler - Play for $1
This game offers you the opportunity to "double down" on your lottery ticket and the state will actually pay you 3 times the prize amount for the non-jackpot prizes.  Why would they do this?  Well, maybe they have underpriced the prizes. The Jackpot needs to be just over 8 Million dollars to justify playing the $1 ticket and the jackpot should be around 14 million dollars to justify playing the $2 dollar ticket.  In other words just buy 2 $1 tickets and call it a day.
You would have to be crazy to play this game.  I have never seen a powerball type game with prizes so low.  You would need the jackpot to be almost $1,000,000 to justify playing this game, and the jackpot starts at $100,000.  The simple fact is that the jackpot will never meet the required one million dollars.  You are much better off playing one of the other games, but if you insist, here are your odds.
