I play primarily for "the 'cause', then to increase my income.  I am definitely not in the already millionaire range, but there are a lot of millionaires who play.  Why?  More millions or __________Star

            It became a hobby of mine to try and figure out what may hit in the pick 3 games after a bad accident at work. Now I still try to figure it out but now I play the game not so much for the money but more to see if I can beat it. BTW before I found Lottery post on the web , I had no clue on how to pick numbers. I learned alot on these pages. Alot of good people on here.

             

             Good Luck,

            Blackie.

                I played the lottery when I was making a great living and I now play it when I'm broke. I just play more games and buy a few more tickets when my income is higher. Unlike a lot of people I know, I don't wait until a jackpot rolls over, because every draw is an opportunity. I also don't think about what I'm earning in relation to the jackpot and would probably continue to play if I were wealthy, although winning would definitely have a different impact on my life. Of course I'd want to add $100,000 or more a year to my income, but I don't think of it that way.  One time I read a local news release where the winner "only" won about $900,000 and said "My wife & I are debt-free." For me that's the key..no mortgage/rent payment, a new car free & clear, and no credit card debt. Another $50K or $100K a year would be gravy, but I don't mind working for a living. With no bills to pay, my own new home/car and a nice meal on my table every night, I'd be better off than most of the world. Then I could just have fun and do what I want or start my own business and volunteer part-time. It's the daily grind, putting up with difficult bosses and coworkers and "struggling" to have a good life that's a b****.

                  Thanks Lee, You and Sandy have taught me a few things too.

                  Edit: Lee are you the one that checked the 10,000,000 after that big win lately

                   

                   Good Luck,

                  Blackie.

                        The question on the poll wasn't very clear. Is your purpose to find out what the current income of board members is? I would really doubt any poll done over the internet about income. It would be more accurate to ask what income people would like to have than what they already have.

                              I play in hopes of a life transformation, and a chance at peace of mind instilled by having infinite financial freedom, financial security, and overall security in life. Also for fun.
