seems like the majority so far are losing but there are also quite a few winning also.....

I've had a tough year with the lottery, small winnings under $12.00, hopefully 2006 will be more prosperous

      I am so far down this year on the lotteries if I look up I might be able to see some whale dung .

      I hope 2006 is better...Heck, I know it will be: it couldn't be worse....

       I have done better at the Casinos : the Grand in Biloxi was my fave but we all know what happened there > Thud

       

      When they RE build it, I will be there.

          I always break even, when I notice it. I'm in the hole when I notice that. I'm ahead when I win, then I really notice it.

          Then I break even..........Then I....................

            I started playing the lottery (super7 and 6/49) in october, when I win...it's always 10$ or less. I'm hoping I win the big jackpot and be a young winner since the lottery is played by mostly older folks (i'm only 19).

              Thanx, You just made me think of a good poll. Look in Discussion.

              In this poll, I will use the age of 14, instead of 19.

                For 363 days the lottery has had an all out attack on my mind and wallet.  Trying to chase those numbers has gotten me no were but my last two days could bring me out of this wreckage.  Even if it does not turn around I will know that at least I do not play for Megabucks and Powerball any more.  I have gone to a new game "Pick4" and 2006 will be the year I start to see some greenbacks and big ones.

                  Yet another one digit/one number miss on pick 3 tonight. I am so sick of pick and pick 4 one digit misses. Example, play 374 comes up 375. Those hurt badly. I better hit a big jackpot soon, because the lottery owes me a lot of money. I am retiring from the small games, it is pretty sad when the jackpot games pay me back more than the small ones do. But then again could be a good sign. I don't play the small ones much though anymore, last hit though was boxed in April for 100 bucks. So close to being straight too.

                  whenever I start to hit like that sirbrad, I always take 1 number up and 1 number down from my original pick and it seems to work for me...!

                        Since I play POWERBALL with POWER PLAY,  I haven't hit four numbers -- let alone 5 or 6!  Usually, I'll hit the POWERBALL NUMBER, along with 1 or 2 other numbers.

                        Last year, 2004, I was on a roll...hitting the POWERBALL NUMBER almost every week.  In fact, a friend told me: "I can't even hit the POWERBALL NUMBER, and you're hitting it almost every week -- what luck you have!"

                        Yes, it felt great 'being-on-a-roll' for awhile, but I guess all good things must come to an end.  In fact, I lost my lucky streak...not hitting a POWERBALL NUMBER for weeks-on-end. OK, months on end.  For me, I get on this winning streak -- even surprising myself -- and then I crash!I

                            I've had a very successful year.  I've successfully donated to every Powerball winner's jackpot.
