Hmm.  Three times a week for me.  However,I do buy multidraws for cash 3 and cash 4. 

How are you going to win if you don't play?

        Anywhere from 0 to 4 times weekly.

        Sometimes I play every draw, thinking it may be fate landing me a BIG hit soon.

        Sometimes I say f_ck fate, and play only certain draws, thinking I need to concentrate more on number selection/gut instinct.

              I played for the first time in months.  I'm trying to get back to playing 3 x's a week.  I mostly play Fantasy 5, Lotto South and Mega.

                I play Louisiana Lotto on Wednesday and Saturday.  I'm also in a Powerball partnership with a coworker.  We each put up $2 on payday and buy a ticket for 4 draws.

                I also play Powerball on my own when the jackpot gets above $100 million and if there's a pool at work, I get in that too.  As for scratch offs, I only play them occasionally.  I used to buy Powerball Instant Millionaire when that game was available but since the show is gone now, I don't play it anymore.

                Today I bought my first scratch ticket in months, the $1,000,000 spectactular.  It's a $10 ticket with a chance to win up to $200,000 and if the ticket isn't a winner, it can be mailed in for a $1,000,000 second chance drawing.  All I won was another ticket, which I'll pick up tommorrow.  Maybe that will be the one.

                    I take the lottery in spurts. I may go 6 months or more and not buy a ticket at all and then I may go through a spurt where I am playing daily. I like the smaller games better than the larger ones. Cash 3, Cash 4 and Fantasy Five. I also buy scratch offs sporatically (sp?) as well. -Bonnie

                      I normally play one ticket a draw, unless the jackpot in very big, then I buy a few more.

                        I buy my tickets on the day of the draw, every powerball draw.  That's twice a week, which wasn't an option on the poll.  So I put myself into the three times a week spot.

                              I often buy only one ticket.
