      Since I concentrate my resources on the larger jackpot games (PB, MM, large jackpot state lottos), I typically only purchase tickets that cover 4 days (those Wed/Sat and Tues/Fri draws).  Occasionally, when the Illinois lotto gets up where a single winner could pocket more than $2M from the cash value (so around $4M annuitized jackpot), I will buy a ticket for the Monday draw which extends my buying to five days.  Otherwise, I take that day as well as Thursday and Sunday to think about my line of own picks I want to play and then purchase those plays over the course of the draw day.  I think I would go broke playing pick 3 and pick 4 just because it is an everyday game.  Oh and I almost forgot!  I don't usually play Illinois' Little Lotto game, but I will throw a couple of bucks on a QP and an own pick when that jackpot gets over $500K (yeah, it won't change my life, but $300K after taxes is nice play money).

      Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

      The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

          Everyday, since the OP said all games.

          This wasn't until the Illinois Little Lotto went from five days a week to seven, though. I almost always play it, Lotto (pick 6) and MM, maybe or maybe not. I've never won more than $7 on either one and have been playing a long time.  

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

          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.

            Surprised by the above answers.  I play Lotto twice a week and sometimes I'll pickup a Fantasy 5 or MegaMoney ticket when I'm at the supermarket, like last evening, so I checked 4 times a week., although maybe I should have checked 2.  It varies.

              What's surprising? I would think with all the predictors and online play here everyday would be the most common answer (if everyone answers honestly). 

              I think we could also ask though, how much is your average play? Little Lotto included, my lotto 'shennanigans' comes out to about $2.34 a day - I'm strictly a $1 and $2 player.

              But let's say someone only plays Mega millions, but when they play, they go $20 a drawing.

              So who would be considered as playing more, the everyday $1 and $2 player, or the twice a week $20 player? 

              PS

              My main game is Little Lotto because you get 'a bone' once in a while ($1, $10, maybe $100).

                  Varies. Once every two weeks usually. Sometimes just once a month.

                         I play pick 4 with a bangup 1 or 2 dollars a day.

                        * I know theirs got to be some gambling heads here who spend $300+ monthy on Lotto. I mean after all to play all states minimum is $14.00 isn't it.

                          Depends on the jackpot. I usually play at least twice a week.
