    Best year so far, but I'm decreasing my lottery spending in a major way, unless I get more lottery coupons in the mail lol.

                My year was so-so. I missed winning $800,000 in the Texas Two Step by one number.  I won $63.

                    I have had a pretty good year. Not tons ahead but not in the hole either. It seemed like when I played a good deal of money on a few numbers I did better, I find that sort of strange. I still like to have a little on several numbers to help keep down the loss amount but I will pick two or three sets and put a chunk on them. I lost a lot but when I hit it was really really nice. I can honestly say that since I found this web site and started comparing my numbers to others that I started doing a lot better. I guess just the reassurances of someone else deciding to play the same numbers that I picked was what I needed.

                      That's quite a difference ($63 v $800,000).

                        I got 3 out of 4 plus the bonus ball.  4 out of 4 but no bonus ball got $1406.

                          TX 2-Step looks like a fun game.

                            Made for people like you who like the lump sum payout. Jackpots start at $200,000 and roll over till there is a winner.  Just got back from the store that sold the $1.35 million jackpot to one person. The clerks got a $100 bonus each.

                              I spent a lot on the Oregon Megabucks but won nothing.

                              Spent only $20 on Megamillions when it hit 290 and nothing on powerball this year. Still waiting for those two multi-state games to get their act together and have a real jackpot.

                              I'll spend some money on the Quito (pick 5) game here but so far this year is just loosing.

                              I haven't won anything since 1995.
