Hey people I just wanted to know if there were any young people on LP? How old are you? What games do you play and why?

 I'm 22 and I only play 4 games: Mega Millions, Classic Lotto Ohio, Raffle Ohio (when its going on), and Rolling Cash 5.

As you can see (except Rolling Cash 5) I only play games with a pot over a 1 million dollars because I rather have prize that could really change my life rather that $500 here, or $80 there with the smaller games.

          I ran a quick Search, set the date range to past two years and used the search terms what age poll, and I came up with two polls that were posted.

          (I'm mentioning HOW I got this info to help out anyone reading this who isn't sure how to extract information from Lottery Post.  I'd highly recommend that everyone take some time out of their day at some point to play around with the Search page.  It LOOKS very simple, but there are many options available that people are not aware of, and the search terms input space works just like Google.)

          http://www.lotterypost.com/thread/112644 - This one is the best, with lots of responses

          http://www.lotterypost.com/thread/125821 - This one is pretty good too

            BTW, if you're looking at the first poll, everyone is two years older now than when they posted their age! Big Grin

                Here are some statistics that may be interesting!

                • There are 1014 Lottery Post members who currently have their actual birthday registered in their profile.
                • The average age of those 1014 people is 42.

                  Interesting...

                  1014...backwards is 4 plus the two ones equals 2...42.

                  Also...1014 X 42 = 42,588

                    Well, I was interested from a demographic perspective, but if numerology is your thing then it can certainly be interesting from that perspective too.

                    Cheers

                      I'm 20 years old and I play mainly Instant Games.  However, I do play FL lotto, Powerball, Mega Millions, Lotto 5, Fantasy 5 (GA and FL) and pretty much any game that interests me.  I don't really play Pick 3 or 4 much.  Had not luck with either of those games.

                      How are you going to win if you don't play?

                        I am 30 and I play (ca) fantasy 5 and Mega millions as well as Super Lotto.  I always have said "when I win the lotto i am going to...." and one day in January I was standing in line at a Circle K and realized I havent bought a lotto ticket in years!

                         

                        So every since then (jan 07) I play the fantasy 5 every day $5 bucks and just recently the mega and super lotto.  I wonder what it is going to feel like when I win?Party

                          Oy!  I have underwear older than 19!  However, part of me is 23.  The other is way past the expiration date. 

                          I know I shouldn't be posting on this thread, but I hope the Lottery is never a gender-specific subject. Smiley

                            i am 32 going on 50......i live in an apartment building in a section with older people and love it.i love it also because they don't let any loud,horseplay,booming music,etc. go on around here.i like peace and quiet and certainly don't like looking at my window and seeing people lounge in their cars in the parking lot.you can lounge around inside a house just like you can a parking lot right?  i never understood people who do that.if you wanna hang invite people inside and have a party right?

                              I'm only 23 and still learning. I've been playing since I was 12, and won a lot of scratch-offs.

                              I have my whole life ahead of me...
