    Not me.  I like the anticipation of the draws. 

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

      i live in a small town where if a person were to win, everyone in the area would know about it.

      so i go to a place twenty miles away to purchase tickets and i can't always get there for each draw

      so buying for a month at a time assures a ticket for each draw

      sometimes when i am in that community i may purchase a ticket for that evenings draw

        I voted "once a month."  However, it's more like every six to eight weeks.  Living in lotteryless Alabama keeps me fom buying tickets more often than that.   As I've mentioned previously in the forum, I'm a little more than an hour and a half's drive from the TN and GA state lines (and about 4 hours from Florida) and  I just can't afford to waste 3-1/2 to 4 hours or more driving every weekend just to get lottery tickets.  And then there's the price of gas!

        But, thanks to multidraw, I get to play various lottery games twice a week or more for extended periods .  For example, I was in Florida in mid-June and I have a few Mega Money numbers through September 30.  And over 4th of July weekend, I bought 10 draws on Tennessee PowerBall numbers and those run through Aug 5.  And in the next two or three weeks, I'll be making a run to either GA or TN to get some new tickets.  I really like the Fantasy 5 games and I wish they would allow more than 14 draws for GA and TN and 30 draws for Florida.

          You forgot to include twice a week, which is how often the major lotteries have a drawing.
