Do you also consider yourself a serious or  recreational player?
Personally: l play both the major ones and perhaps fantasy 5 , 2-3 a week. How about you?

                  I'd say I'm a moderately serious player.  I'm in every draw for the big 2 plus Hot Lotto and occasionally Wild Card 2.

                  But I think of serious players as the ones who don't blink an eye at spending $50 per game per draw, and I hardly ever go over $5 per game per draw.  And it's usually less.

                  I think of recreational players as the ones who keep an eye on the jackpots, but only play when they feel lucky, or only play when the jackpot is high.  They don't mind if they're not in a draw.

                    B2B- Whats the ticket price on the Cash 5? l love the idea that they throw in $50K and a tundra, that should be incentive enough for those who cannot afford a vehicle to give it a shot. The licensing and registration is prob coming out of your pocket, but who cares.

                      here the big games are powerball and ozlotto, odss of 1 in 76mill, and 45 mill respectively.  they only pay out $3 mill nd 2 mill,  when ther jack pots start again. i try and play all the games all the time, but when they pull this sort of thing i have to wthdraw my cash and sit on the side lines.  i have no will power so by the time the  pots roll to $10 mill im usually back in.

                      the thing is the odds on power ball went up from 1 in 54 mill to 1 in 76 mill , and they didint increase the starting pot by anything.

                       

                      sure $3 mill isnt anything to be   scoffed at, but another game  has odds of 1 in 8 mill and the 1st prize is $1 mill,  so realistically, i should hiold off the powwerball untill the ROI is at least as equal to theis cheaper and easier to win game.

                      as you can see i am torn between telling them to jam it, and  my desire to be in every draw.

                        I'll play everyday if I'm chasing a number. And go harder on it if I see others are predicting the same number I'm chasing. Wink

                            I play something everyday, but usually $1 - $2, so recreational player.

                            In Illinois Lucky Day Loto (5/39) is the biggest thing going on Sundays and Thursdays and ironically on those days it's usually at its $100,000 starting jackpot. Quite often it gets hit the night before. There have been times the jackpot has ben ovr $1,000,000 so when that happens I might 'go wild' and play $1 for each $100,000.

                            Otherwise it's MM and PB. The state Pick 6 is usually very weak compared to those jackpots.

                            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                            Lep

                            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
