It is really worth it to play the lottery?


I have been playing the lottery for at least six months straight and the only funds I have made from it was $50.00 and wondering out there from others is is worth it? Even when you are playing with a strategy or systems and even additional numbers the pay off to me, is still not worth the risk of losing hundreds of dollars a month. Tell what you think? All opinions are wellcome but don't be rude in the process.

Over the years I win between 15% and 20% of what I bet. So if I play $1200 in a year, my average return is about $200.
So, the lottery is not a game where you will PROBABLY make a profit. I play for fun, and for a jackpot. If you play thinking you are going to always make a profit, you are better off with the stock market (maybe), or a casino.
Good luck!

You are absolutely right about not playing to make a profit because you will be very disappointed. Howeve, I know people who use their whole paychecks but hardly ever make a dime, but sometimes get a lucky streak or two. I, myself, have been running a lottery pool for the powerball and this has been much fun and we have been hitting small hits, while putting it back into the system.

If your in it to win it,forget it.You play it to have a dream about what you would do if you win the big jackpot.I'll buy a few lottery tickets a month and I'll think about what I'll buy with the jackpot.First thing I'll do is buy a house with beautiful furniture from Europe.And then a car,maybe an Lexus and then go on a fabolous world wide trip with family and a few close friends.And then set up a trust fund for my family.Any day now,my boats coming in.I must go now.It's that time to buy my lottery tickets!.I feel a big win coming!.

Wow Larry you got things all figured out! You are a man with a plan to come :) At the time when I posted this blog I was pretty pissed off because I had not won anything but since then I have started a lottery pool in my area and it has mushroomed. It is really exciting to see all of us putting out money in a week to see if we hit or not.

Your plans are pretty much like mines, and Yes, I do plan to set up trust funds for my granddaughters and bless the rest of the family. Thanks for sharing.

if you are in it to win a lot of money. forget it. it about a dream if you hit the big one (million) my's is a nice house,car,truck,boat,share with family and friends.it pay the bill when i hit. i pay up for a month ahead. so i save money also. for me it work ok. most it don't. experiment is best but follow the people that hit for the beginner.
