        how did you do in the lottery for 2007?

         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 hit $1790.00  in september and my husband just hit $2290.00 friday night 12/7/07...Linda in florida

          I voted not too good but I wasn't sure exactly how to vote. I did do quite well with hits on pick 3 but, I didn't spend much on them. I played a lot of .50 bx plays. I was being conservative. I had a lot of bx hits that came out str. There is still time left in the year to get some big wins. I'm hoping 878 or 884 falls soon on the KY evening draw. I think next year I will pick 1 or 2 numbers and just play them.

          I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

            Hey Mike....You love those p-4s and do quite well with them.

            I like to monitor whether I'm even or in the hole as a whole. No decimal points but a good idea. So far I must say I'm not far ahead as I'd like to be by the deepest stretch of the imagination, but content with the growing and learning processeses along the way. Tweak city will be the name of my band. Or maybe hone town....lol

            Love you guys.....

                Played the budgeted $100 all on Mega Millions.  Not much, but what I think I should play.  All plays were when the payoff was over $100,000,000.

                Of note, I won a total of $6, of which $4 was on matches on a $3 ticket.

                Went nuts one drawing (the big $300,000,000 one) with a $20 purchase.  On that ticket, with 180 numbers (6 x 20) didn't have one that matched any drawn number.  Wonder what the odds of that were?

                Have a co-worker who spends $30 a week ($15 each draw) on Powerball.  That's serious dough, but he uses what he used to spend on smokes prior to quitting.  Anyway, last year he won $126.  Not a good return, but better than buying smokes I guess.

                  Ok, here's mine in detail as of Nov 30 '07:

                  Pick 3 -  $143 / 0 winnings

                  Pick 4 -  $42 / 0 winnings

                  Little Lotto (Pick 5)  - $286, won $89 (all $1 and $10 wins)

                  Lotto  (Pick 6) - $125, won $9

                  Mega Millions $144, won $20 

                  Raffle  $20 / 0 winnings (that's it for me and raffles)

                  Pick N Play $ 2 / 0 winnings (I've never heard of anybody winning on these)

                  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.

                    Did better than I did. 

                    I started keeping track and doing a set amount each year in 2003.  Hence the $20 dump due to only playing with high jackpots vs whim.  Keeping track is fun and a good way to see just how much you can spend.

                    I think another good question for a poll would be:  What was the most you ever spent at one time on lottery tickets?

                    For me, that would be $20. 

                    I was behind a guy in line at the 7/11 who was buying, really, $250 worth of Mega Million tickets.
