I can tell you don't  gamble often. A "true gambler" would see that as a 7 dollar win and not factor what was spent in the equation.

 

This lottery thing gets reallly scary really fast when you start focusing on those "technicalities".

I am a THRIFTY but loyal lottery player.

          The odds of winning any lottery don't go to infinity, they are fixed based on the amount of numbers in the pools you are picking from.

            Check your TICKET? Yesterday was the SOMEDAY you so often speak of? Sound the alarm.

             

            Congrats on the $7 win and welcome to "live" play.

            Thrifty will win the big jackpot someday. I'm a believer.

              Your reputation precedes you.

               

              If you're not going to win, it's good to get something back. That's why I sent out the congrats. I got zilch off my numbers this week. Back to tweaking my revised strategy. Hopefully I will do better come Wednesday.

                DO YOU SET A LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT TO MINIMIZE YOUR LOSSES?

                  But the chances of winning are "infinitely" better WITH a ticket, than they are WITHOUT a ticket.Conehead

                    I Agree! And there is no such thing as "losing" until there is no money left to bet with......

                          Stop loss? Sounds millitary to me.

                           

                          I gamble until I am exhausted and then I use the rest to pay the bills.

                           

                          Seriously though, I run a strict budget no matter the JP size as the size of the JP doesn't change the odds.
