    About $10. But I played a lot more than that. God, I'm lucky.

      I was lucky. I won.  Beginners luck online.  They were kicking my butt at first though.  But another LP member helped me come up with a plan on how to place my bets.  I cleared $1,200.  I'll pay a bill as soon as I get the money so I wouldn't give it back.  Easy money goes fast.

           You don't have to trust on line betting if they use the results from the states games. They can't fix that outcome. Don't play their other games on line. They write the software and believe me you will lose no matter what you hear or think you see.

            Yes online.  Actually it was through a bet with another LP poster.  I didn't even play that state.  I gave it the old school of what follows what and I hit.  I placed $1.00 on the number all six ways to put some drawers on it and I won $900 that time.

                Everytime I walk in a Lotto seller to buy a Pick 4 or Pick 3, I feel I have a neon sign on my forehead - the same one I have when I walk into a car dealship. I see them, behind the counter, laughing.

                  I lost about $10. I don't spend that much on tickets.

                      Ah, $10 bucks, wish I had that discipline, heck I lost more than that on the first draw of the month.

                        I lose  8 dollars a month  (10 if it is a month with 5 weeks) because I only play one number in the Powerball.

                          This year I'm keeping a lottery log. I haven't tried to see how much I'm down for the year so far.

                            Loosing money on the lottery lets you know wether to quit or to figure a winning way.
