Do you get together with your local lottery buddies and chat about numbers and systems?

    I'd rather do that here....I don't know anybody that hits anything worth mentioning. Being in the southern part of the Midwest even if I wanted to I'd have to put up with at least an hour of  bar-b-que place comparisons and recipes and stories about Mildred down the street, you know her, right? before the talk ever got to the lottery, if ever.

      I would like to be part of a pool. However, I know there can be trouble (been a subject here many times) I still would want my personal numbers to be kept out of the pool since I've been playing them for so long. (Selfish? maybe.) There are more chances of winning with 10 other people than alone.  Something is better than nothing.

      Otherwise, I can't see why there would be a local chat.  I've struck up a conversation at the store when I've bought some tickets, but it usually is just to say "good luck" or "how have you done with those scratch-offs?"  Most people aren't really into all the things we discuss here...at least that's the impression I get. I hear "quickpick" a lot more than see someone playing a card.

      So I guess my answer is "no!"  LOL  (but I would like to join a group)

        My best lottery conversation is with a friend who went through the process of keeping records as long as I have and who knows the followers, patterns, trends, etc., can read the board and who use the same main system as I do. 

        I go into the chat rooms to be in good company.  It's a fun social thing to me.  I like Yahoo Voice Chat because you can call each other computers and talk just like you'll on the phone for free or you can talk as a group.

          Wish I knew some locals who were interested in lottery but no such luck. Even my own family is bored by my lottery chatter. That's why I have all you folks here and am enjoying every minute!

            I'm really kind of shocked that I am the only person I know (locally) that tries to beat the lottery by keeping data and such. Out of the 200 co-workers I work with there are about 5 hardcore lottery players. And by that I mean people that play more than once a week. But I have never personally met anyone that gets into the stats of the game. That is why I enjoy coming here. I just wish I could find some players locally that are like us. Someone to bounce new ideas off of and vice-versa. One of the terminal operators tried to hook me up with another local player who won a couple of nice pots to exchange ideas with only to find the other players method was picking one combo and playing it straight until it hit no matter how long that took. That's not exactly my cup of tea. I don't see the fun in that....

            Maybe someday,

                No, when it comes to playing the lottery, I don't have any buddies.  I've heard of two many court cases that involved a lottery winner and his so called lottery buddies.  Too many lottery buddies assume a winner of a large prize should share whether they shared the cost of his tickets or not.

                    The only lottery club I will ever get into is one where there is a maximum of 3 other people, and all contribute between $10 and $20 per drawing.  Any more people than that and it's not worth it to me, any less dollars than that, same thing.

                    And I'd also have a written contract for all of us.   And I call all of the shots.

                      Mildred is just fine, never did get to talking lotto though.

                      From a lot of news items and "lottery horror stories" even a written contract doesn't always do the trick.  this kind of thing comes up"

                      "Well we'd all been playing every Wednesday and Saturday for a year and  I called in sick that day and darn it, they knew I would have kicked in the $ _ _ if they'd have asked....I want my share of the winnings!".

                      I know that's exactly the type thing the contract is intended to cover, but it seems they still get challenged.

                        I tried that once, talking to others about the lottory.  I go to Waffle House every night.  After Tennessee got their lottory and I had been recording stats for a few months, I made the mistake of showing my work to a few.

                        That was two years ago and they are still laughing. 

                        So I went surfing the net and found LP.  Thank G-d for Todd and you all here.

                          Those folks laugh because they think WE think we can pick winning numbers with stats, but what they don't know is the reason we keep stats is to just point us in one direction, or away from another.  We have enough common sense to realize what we are up against, the randomness of it all....

                           

                          IMO, of course.

                            And the LAUGHERS are probably the ones out there buying lottery manuals when they come out.
                            Horoscope books, Uncle Joes picks, The weekly pick mag etc.

                            I might just as well find out the info for weekly publications and publish a weekly pamphlet for S.C.

                            cost $2.99 a week.

                            Run them out to the stores once a week and set home the other 6 days. I would make sure they are behind the counter as I have seen lottery players thumbing thru lottery mags at the counters looking for the info and then set the mag back on the rack.

                              I think local lottery chats are very risky.  If you win big someday, you have no way to hide.  Everybody knows your workplace and where you live.
