Would you consider posting that here:
Somebody caption that picture! Something to do with "a whopping 32%" and the results of a drawing on TV!
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.

Is that before or after taxes?

When I am just playing the powerball, it's 0.68% (not even a whole percent).
This month adding Cash5 and Match6, I am at around 2.45%
In sharp contrast, I spend 6.5% in gas to get me back and forth to work.
That's what I'm talking about, right there. I hate these gas prices. They are chomping away at my fun. I am already stuck home for the Fourth of July because of it. My vacation is all I have other than the lottery and my dreams. I don't drink, smoke, or gamble on anything else. And, after realizing that I spend way too much on powerball and mega millions, I had no choice but to cut back on that. (If for no other reason than plain decency to my family considering gas prices.) Oh, goodness, there I go again on my rants about gas prices. Forgive me ya'll. But it really isn't the same here anymore. In my town, people have stopped going out to eat. (I know, 'good, we'll all lose weight' right?) No one is buying anything at the movies either. It only costs one dollar at our theatre to see a movie anytime of day or night., but the consessions will run upwards of $30 for my family to get popcorn and a pop. So, like everyone else, we have had to cut that out too. Now we rent dvds or wait until there is a movie we just have to see. If this keeps up, the entire town will go out of business. I have noticed our mall losing contracts because stores have gone out of business. No one is buying anything. They just can't afford it. It is almost like a ghost town here., except the utilities companies and grocery stores.
voir-vous dans mes reves!

No I haven't but I can tell you it's not even 1%..... few bucks a week maybe 15 to 20 when there is a big jackpot. Wife buys 2 (1 per draw) 6/49 tickets regardless of the jackpot and I only play Super 7 and 6/49 when they get over 15 Million. Then when visiting the states I get PB and MM. If the Jackpots are Big.
I know the minimum I want to win. So why should I bother playing when it's under that.

When I started playing Megamillions and CA Super Lotto, I allotted 100 dollars a month or about 1200-1500 a year. Last year, I reduced that to 600 a year. Now, I only play 2 dollars per draw or about 400 a year.

While it varies a great deal from month to month since I now play only when the jackpot is bigger and buy more tickets if it gets really large, on an annual basis I try to keep the total to just around 1%.

I would say about 95 %.
I spend about 200 bucks a day. Unless of course I think that a p-3 is gonna hit for sure, then I up it to about 250 a day.
And always play the same set, so the payoff would be a good one.
This is why I'm 3 years behind in rent. I hardly eat or drink, and also behind in my car payments for 6 years now. But when I hit, I'll be able to pay off all my debts, thank God.

I have not been playing a lot of pick 3's this month. With the two businesses, I am busy with inventory and paper work. When I do play, I am still playing off 5ds money. Nothing out of my purse.. or purses..
