 me i had that pick 4 straight in february but didn't play much after that due to online being banned and tennessee going computerized.however i'm way ahead in the profit margin so i guess i did very good.2,500 dollars i won is a slow year for me compared to 2004,2005 and 2006.

      I did O.K., won some money, but not as much as 2006. But hey, there is still some 2007 left, so I'm not thinking of '08 quite yet.

        I had a confusing year.

        Started out doing pretty good playing a 5/39 game, hitting four 4 out 5, several 3 out 5, and lots of 2 out 5. Then I hit a slump and couldn't pick my nose so I switched to the Keno style 10-spot Ten-Oh game. Did great for a while but now I'm right back in that slump.

        Guess it's time to move over to the Pick-4.

          i had a few 1000$+ wins, but all in all not much profit made. the thing with me is sometimes i'm just too cheap. should bet another quarter or 50 cents for a bigger prize. i'm playing very conservative now. not making 100$ bets on sports as sports is a much higher risk. conservation & preservation of the bank roll..thats my new motto until i hit a nice lotto payout.

              I voted very good, because I did fairly good (wins to sporatic for my liking) from January 2007 until about September 2007. But, then I learned how to put all I've learned together, from August until present and it is really paying off. I've made more money from October - present, than I have since started playing the lottery in 1995.

              I am truly grateful, blessed and I am a risk taker. So people aren't willing to take reasonable risk to get their lifes' dream, but I was/am and I'm truly blessed for it.

              Life is Great and I know that 2008 will be off the chain!!!

              Take Care, Be Blessed and Happy Winnings!!!

              I am a money magnet.

                I didn't do that well, but then I play jackpot games like Powerball, Wild Card 2 and Hot Lotto and not Pick 3 or 4. I did end up winning something like $24 on PB this year, which is pretty good for me. LOL

                    Congrats to those who made money in 2007 and good for those who broke even.   I didn't. 

                    The only thing I can say is I took $20 out of the ATM on Wed since it was empty.  I went to Publix and only picked up a loaf of bread, a dozen eggs and a quart of milk. I then went to the lottery counter and bought my 4 regular Lotto tickets.  I got a little nervous about a "mistake" that was printed a few weeks ago* and decided to play those numbers and my regular Fantasy 5 as well, thinking "maybe tonight it will hit." So I had less than $8 left.  I don't want to sound like my parents ("I remember when bread cost 10 cents a loaf") but $20 used to last for a few days. Now it doesn't even fill my tank up 1/2 way.

                    So my attitude is that if I only won as much as I spent on the lottery during the course of a year, I'd be doing okay.

                          As of last week,  $999 spent for the year and $122 won. I guess that's just about exactly where that's suppossed to fall.

                          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.

                            Terrible

                            Did not have the desire to wager a lot.

                            On line play went to hell when the new law came into existance.

                            When I did wager it was the wrong number picked.

                            Costruction Industry is in a decline. Need to watch the bucks. 

                            Who would want to gamble with an arm mortage. I would want a fixed rate to know what I will be paying.
                            Looks like more losers with arms than in the lottery. Big time. Billions

                              I put average, not because I broke even, but because I had an average year in winnings vs money spent versus past years. My lotto highlights in 2007 was winning 4/5 0/1 Mega Millions twice. I live in Cali so our jackpot prizes are pari-mutuel, the normal prize in other states is 150, I won 154 the first time and 146 the second time, essentially no benefit or loss for being in a pari-mutuel state. (both were quick picks)

                              But like others have stated, there is still plenty of time left to hit it in 2007, so hopefully, we can all come back, and upgrade our response!
