Being a member of the LP for about 3 months, and reading, enjoying and laughing at some of the discussions, I'm curious how long many of you have been playing!

    Actually, 11 years but I don't have that choice so 10 yrs is the closest.

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

      I've only been old enough to play for 1 yr.

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

        About five years ago, the jackpot in the big game got to 300 million that was the first lottery ticket I ever bought.

          I study the pick 3 lottery since sometime during 2003. As to playing, I almost never play yet, I go only for the sure thing, soon soon very soon is coming and coming closer and closer very very soon I hope, so far everything is going O.K. The impossible (lottery wise) is becoming possible little by little and with a lot of help from some lottery programs also, but mostly because I think a lot about pick 3 filters.

          Yes, I have taken a look at pick 3 filters for about 2 years more or less.But not playing yet, I don't have money to throw away (yet), as soon as I get better then I will play and is maybe comming soon (?), I hope, I do know more and more as time goes by, but I am not happy with half-way solutions and maybes, I go for the sure thing and solution and no, I am not dreaming, it will come, I have made great progress so far and will keep on making more and more little by little.

          Good luck to everybody.

                Played lotto since 1986 when the national lottery started in Norway.

                I've been using wheels and systems since 1990.

                      I've been losing a lot since I turn 18 years old. I played California Super Lotto and California Super Lotto Plus for about 6 years total, but only 1 month as a Lottery Post person I've guessed in Mega Millions and Powerball.

                        I've played the Maryland classic lotto for about 10 years.  Got interested in Mega Millions, and then Powerball back when MM had that $300 million plus jackpot.  Been playing both ever since.  I also get a season ticket for Florida lotto anytime I happen to be there or know someone who is going there.

                          I play Maryland's classic lotto also but like Bonus match 5 tax free payout on the jackpot prize i play the same set of numbers two times for a 100,000 grand tax free payout if i get lucky enough to win.

                          Classic lotto payout and rollover is two small and should be increased or they should pay the taxes on it also if someone wins.

                            I play to dream and dream of winning a major jackpot!

                              Rabbitfoot, if your biggest win was 78 bucks, you are definitely behind the 8 ball!!!

                              I can't ever remember not playing numbers. They've always been a part of my life. I'm in your 30 year ballpark Rabbitfoot.
