I know some people retire when they win a big prize but does anyone know of anyone who wins every month or so and this IS their living? Just curious if this is possible without counting on ONE big win which may or may not ever happen?

Many of you make predictions for many different state's games & even Europe? Is this just a game for you or do you actually buy all the tickets you predict & show winnings for? If you actually buy these tickets, how do you do this? Is it thru internet sales? We are fairly new at this lottery stuff, so any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I dont know of anyone making a living out of what I play , (pick 3) but it gives me spending money and I even pay for things like Car parts or service, a night out , and also the next lottery ticket I may buy. I play it more to see if I can get it than the money. I do predict the numbers and I try to keep it down to about 10 numbers although I have put Key numbers on here for say the number 5. I don't play all 10 but rather pick what I like out of the 10 as 5 or 6 plays. I dont play it on the internet but alot of people on here seem to choose that route. Good Luck to you and welcome to LP

     

     Good Luck,

    Blackie.

      There are MANY people who consistently make a living from the Lottery every month for many consecutive years! They are each state's Lottery Director and other Lottery employees...

              A living? Harldy. If one has that much money to be investing in the lottery on a daily basis, they do not even need to play. No one is picking magical numbers on a daily basis, usually good returns require a lot of plays, and wheeling.

              So basically you are always just under breaking even if anything. Spend $200 a week, get an average return of $50-75 if you are lucky. But if you only buy one ticket a month, and that one ticket hits for $2500 each month, now that is making a living.

                  Yes one thing is for certain, the lottery is definitely making a living off of us. Even when I win a good sized amount, the temptation to reinvest it for a chance at a larger prize is almost too great. Therefore any small winnings will gradually deplete over time, and end right back in the lottery officials pockets, or other "lucky winner's" pockets.

                    Not even Ion Saliu is making a living out of the lottery. (He gives away his systems and software for free).
