My vote is for poor, since pathetic wasn't a choice...

Have won $100 several times on scratchers, and some decent payouts on PB with the multiplier, but overall way way down...

I would need a searchlight with the candlepower of the Luxor's spotlight to see my way out of the hole.

Maybe I can get some of my fellow LP members to wish me good luck in 2007 and their wishes will work.... At least I hope so.. couldn't hurt.....

    Permit me to update just a touch  - since I wrote the comment above, I bought one $5 Texas hold em scratcher and hit it for $1000 today.

    Just the tonic needed to go into 2007 on a winning note.

    Never give up-never surrender...

      Just what the lotto wanted us to do. I just tallied up the losers for the year (kept the tickets in case we won something enough that we could write them off, but unless we hit something tomorrow night, well.....)

      Amounts are for the year.....

      Scratchers (Mrs Coin toss) 

      - $501   + 200, + 50, + $15, + $17, + 12 a few times, about $20 in $2's, and free tickets, so they're + /- 

      For the year, - $195

      = $16.25 monthly 

      Numbers games

      Pick 3 -  - $273.50  + $290 ($1 Straight Box)

      Pick 4       -$39.50

      Little Lotto  - $292  + $31

      Lotto       -$56.00

      Mega Millions -$47.00  

      For the year - $387

      = $32.25 monthly 

      All in all, relatively inexpensive entertainment, especially considering the potential payoff.  

      To whoevewr it was here on the board that pointed out just keeping losing tickets isn't goodenough, you have to keep a daily log along with them, thanks.  

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

          done really good this year since playing online. i keep trying to get my wife to let me retire early and just play the lottery. usually make more in one day than all week working 45 hours. 

            And I owe most of my good fortune to" Sfilippo for DUKE !!"  I am even on my new laptop that I purchased  with last week's winnings.

              for the new year I wish everyone hits thier number on the day they play it.

                    Thanks again DUKE !!

                  I have done very lousy in the lottery so far. But got a platinum membership   again, so

                  hopefully my luck will improve. Not the jackpot like I want yet!

                   Hopefully  this year!

                    how have you done in the lottery for 2006?

                    before the summer hit i had already hit this year for nearly 5 thousand dollars at betslips.i have not hit since may.i think a lot of it had to do with the internet gambling bill because that really screwed me up as far as my confidence and ability to think and play good.

                    Hi Lottomike;

                    Well we all have been trying to win in what are game..... well my game is Pick 4 and I had won $200.00 dollars about a month ago. And I had predicted a thousand time since this and hit 4 more times, but didn't play because of my timing and a little bit of doubt.

                    Though funny thing happened yesterday when my wife and I went out for breakfast at the local resturant..... as we were about to walk in I saw a set of numbers over the doorway that read 7430..... and I had told my wife that this number was going to come out. and as we were cominng home I saw another set of numbers on a license plate that read 2277....... and this also came out in Washington D.C. (2772 MIDDAY).

                    And she told me why don't I play these numbers online...... but I had forgotten this so later that afternoon I went online to check the numbers under betslip.com...... and would ya believe it that this number came out STRAIGHT IN NEW YORK!

                    I had called my wife over to the computer and told her that I had to show her something...... and she was in awwwwed! You know I did play these numbers but only in Indiana....... bummer! And they didn't even come out in any box form period.

                    Well my friend....... I STRONGLY believe that today's numbers will be 2817-2813-2808-2804- & mine number - 2842 all in box form of course..... and probably in Jersey, Oregon, Washington d.c ....... but I just played all of my chosen states that I had gathered here on the great LP!

                     

                    Well Happy New Year my friend...... and Win, win, win.......

                    Maverick2842.......out!

                    Thank you and have a prosperous day!

                    Maverick2842.......out!Party

                      To be quite honest ..this was probably one of my worst years in a loong time.Not that I did not hit...very long period between hits. Also, seemed alot of my picks fell on the midday draw , i play evening 95% of the time. Hoping this year will be different. Good luck to all in the coming year and Have a Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                        Now that all the figures are in and calculated, I showed a lost.

                          Fair.  A lot of changes for me in 2006.  Not as much time to focus on the games as I would like.  Certainly showed in the results.
