    I have a budget of $25 per week. I play 6 combinations on my states evening draw plus one quick pick. I play them all for $.50 for $3.5 per day or $24.50 per week. -Bonnie

      I spend around 40-50 dollars a week. Yet I hit 2-3 times a week for 80-200 dollars a week. So I make a little money just a little spend money.

        Is the question about lottery in general or lotto?  For lotto I only spend $4.00 at the most. I don't play every draw. for pick 3 it's atleast $13.00 because I play 999 $1.00 str for both draws daily.

        I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

          Oh, but I do know some people who spend over $100. a day. I don't know how much they win because those people like to keep their numbers secret. They've got this superstition that if too many people play their number it won't come out.

              Is the dollar figure how much you spend on lottery ticket, or how much you spend after subtracting your winnings?  for example, if you make back on average $ 20 from the $ 35 spent on tickets, your  average expense is $ 15.

                  Wow.. good question..

                  My spending in TN varies.. as for online.. no more than $2 per draw.. at 25cent plays I get 8 numbers..

                  I don't play all states..  Once hit.. I don't play next draw...  except TN.. I play daily...

                   

                  I like playing TN numbers in advance .. I do better that way...

                   

                  I may not hit TN for two weeks and then when I hit.. I usually hit 2 or 3 times that week..

                    I've only hit cash 3  Three times.  All were in a box form.  I would like to hit a str.

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

                        more than 150$ a week. try to whittle the odds down from 1 in 1000 to 1 in 55. i look at the due digit and cover it, all combinations. the due digit has to be out at least 11 draws before i decide to play it. as i stated in previous threads, 1 digit won't go more than 20 draws without showing unless it's a midday and eve. starting with 25 cents then increasing the bet until it hits. you might say it's a form of chasing, but it's guarenteed to come in. out of the 55 numbers, some i put less money on, some more. i hit washington tonight by covering the "9". ended up spending 27$ to win 75$. 48$ profit. today was the first day i went after the 9 and it came in. as long as the "pot' continues to build, thats all that counts. like the saying goes...it takes money to make money!!!. i also play certain numbers by following the patterns. mix em up..match em up...and look forward to that big cheque:)

                          Most of my hits in Tn are str too. I've hit mainly on double 2 numbers. The last time 322 came out I got it boxed. I went to cash in the ticket and started looking thru my other tickets and seen the clerk had messed up and gave me the ticket twice. I had wanted to play 322 and 332 str/bx but he gave me the same number 2 times. Usually when I have a good feeling about a double I'll play it super straight(combo) to cover all three ways it could come out. I like that feature in TN, just wish KY would get it for pick 4. The only numbers I play in TN that aren't doubles are 975 and 974. 

                          I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!
