      when i found out tennessee was getting a lottery i started studying the missouri and georgia lottery back in 2003.i had never played a lottery or knew how any of the games went.i studied them about ten hours a day for months.by the time the pick 3 rolled around in march of 2004 i was ready.by july i had hit a number ten times for five grand that enabled me to take off work for months until my daughter was born.i have had a lot of good experiences with the lottery.....

                    Same here. I also bought GH's Lotto Book that had the numbers and you would put your numbers under hers. At that time I didn't understand the concept I like using the letters better

                    My first big win was from a Missouri scratch-off coz Kansas didn't have the lottery yet It was $75

                      I decided to be a regular lottery player in the summer of 1996.  I have been trying to take down a big jackpot since then.-weshar75

                        I started to play on my own.  NH began the "Sweepstakes" drawings in the 60s. I was too young, but my boyfriend occasionally bought a couple of ticketswhen we drove up there.  Then MA followed with "The Game" in the early 70s.  I met someone whose family won $50,000 when it started and it changed his life.  (of course that was 35 years ago!)  but I didn't start playing every week until I moved to FL.  I guess all the hype got to me and now I'm hooked! 


                        I just voted and marked this "average" and now I wish I could change it to "good" 

                        "average" sounds so, well.....average.

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