        Strictly for fun.  If I was good enough I'd be playing for profit.

          For me once a day is enough. Illiniois has two but I rarely play mid-day.

          I can only imagine some of the people working on systems here with multiple drawings (more than two or three a day), proably go into information overload and fry their noodles.

          Amazing how the signature pic of Linda K has morphed from her to a race horse to Cosanza! 

          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.

            I only play for the money, simple as that.  If no money was involved, I wouldn't play or think about this addictive game.

                Mike.

                You left out one - Research.  I have a BS (and you farm people know what that is ) along with a MS (More of the Same) and recieved my PhD (Piled Higher and Deeper) just the other day.

                Lotto provides me with endless hours of computer programming, debuging, anxiety, deep concentration, and migraines.  But how I love it so!

                Winning a jackpot would be nice.  Such a happening would give credence to all that I am doing.

                  Originally I started playing for profit.

                  What changed your mind?

                  Being here with really cool people who enjoy it as much as I do.  It's a nice hobby for me when I have a lot of free time during the week.

                  Keep it simple

                      Right now "I play because I can" and if I ever win a jackpot that will change to "I play because I can win a jackpot".

                          I don't play the lottery because I have bills to pay and kids to feed,

                          mostly I play for the fun of it. If I don't win for a while, I'll go through

                          my system, just to win a few bucks. I think that it's not the amount that

                          you win, just the feeling of winning something that does it for me.

                            ......... the Challenge! (That's fun for me...)

                            Still no profit yet. Most times I play on paper and backtest (no actual bets in some games)

                            Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.
