      I only play on the day of the drawing after my workouts.

      Good Luck!

        If I can afford to, I play up to 5 draws.

          Always buy my tickets the same day unless I have to leave the area.  If we get a report that bad weather is headed our way during hurricane season, sometimes I'll buy my tickets for 2 advance draws, but that's rare.

                i buy my tickets for draw to draw, except if i go out of town and play some other lottery game i may or not buy tickets for future plays.

                One several occasions when i have had doctors appointments, or other interferences with my ability to get numbers for the midday or evening draw i buy them the night before the draw.

                Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

                               I'm not Big John, I'm Four4me, Big John's a friend.

                  I always put things off until the last minute including the numbers. Most every day I go and play then 1/2 hour before the draw and hope the machine isnt down. When a machine is down I have to step on the gas and get to another retailer and hope I'm not too late.

                   

                   Good Luck,

                  Blackie.

                    i voted max because i dont travel to the megamillions states that often so i buy megamillions max futures. i dont play future on powerball because i live in a powerball state so i just play before each draw. the only time i buy max futures for powerball is when i go to kentucky...

                      For games in my state, usually drawing by drawing, although from some of the input here at LP I have played a Pick 5 QP for 5 draws.

                      If we go to Missouri I'll play Powerball for 15 draws, the max advanced ticket

                      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.

                        I only play jackpot games, and I wait until the jackpot reaches a certain threshold before playing, so I generally only buy for the next drawing. The exception is when I pass through a PB state and the jackpot is enough that I decide to play. Unless the jackpot is very high probability says it will roll, so I'll play a few draws. Pennsylvania is the PB state I'm most likely to be in, and their choices for advance play are 2, 5 or more drawings, so I'll play for 5 draws.

                              regarding pick3, right now I can pick about 30 days ahead, but only play them each day they are intended for.

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