    i believe if you play one $ a day is sufficient, since your chances at wining are not going to change, only if you dont play at all.

      Say you have spent say between 6000-7000 dollars  in 8 months on pic 4 combinations and havent won?---is that reasonable? is that normal. Say you have done that for 6 years and you have put all your money, 401's, loans etc into the lottery and to date you have 150.00 left in your life savings. "is that reasonable?" doesnt that sound alittle crazy. Well, it happened to me. Just needed to get that off my shoulders seeing how my life is so fun. Fun is good!



      "is that reasonable?" No it's not.

      doesnt that sound alittle crazy. A little? A lot.

      Either learn how to win and quit playing while you learn or quit forever and find something else to do.

      But please do something other than wasting money on the lottery like that.

      Put limits on your spending.

      Good luck to you.

        Jeff, I don't want to pick at an open wound but I'd like more information as to what state your playing in? and how much per draw do you spend? and how many combinations do you play and how you play them? But just from reading your post, seems to me that your in over your head and need help.

          he plays in indiana...whose lottery is under a lot of scrutiny right now for corruption.he lives in a state where there are never hardly any pick 4 winners,maybe one every few days and the payouts on that game are 5 to 6 thousand a day and the numbers aren't adding up right because even in a small state the payouts and winners should be way higher than they have been in indiana.the state already has a scratch off scam being investigated among other things.....in my opinion where there is smoke there is a fire........

              This is how I control my spending: I work so much on picking numbers that it leaves me very little time to buy tickets at the store!  Seriously, most of my lottery time is spent behind the computer, not by the lottery machine.  Maybe that would be a workable strategy to keep your spending down.
