When we hear the term "serious player" it generally brings to mind someone who plays big bucks.             
   

In my mind a "serious" player is one who takes their numbers "seriously" and has some sort of system or method.       

 

How serious are you??

    Considering the odds of hitting any lotto game, I don't think there is such a thing as a "serious" lottery player, just some players willing or able to throw a lot more money at the games than others.

    Gamblers have went bankrupt trying to beat casino crap, card, and roulette games where the odds are nothing even close to the astronomical odds on lotto.

    "Every one bets the "Dame amount" -  however much it takes to give them a thrill"

    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.

      From your post, I don't think I can vote.  My answer is "yes" but using birthdays, anniversaries or QPs doesn't mean I'm not serious.  I'm practical and don't gamble my rent away, but I never miss a drawing and I want to win just as badly an anyone else.

      I also agree with Coin Toss.  Many lottery players that will say they are "serious" about winning and bet their paychecks on PB or MM have gambling addictions, since the odds are so great.

        Good point,justx. Maybe I didn't word it right. Just because you play QP's doesn't mean you're not serious. I suppose it should read,"Do you seriously track numbers or are just a QP player?" Something to that effect.

          I have a couple of workouts for each of the Texas lottery games, plus MegaMillions. I update the data streams everyday, but I don't play all of the games everyday.

          Lately, I've been concentrating on Pick 3 and  hit 2 box picks last week. Spent $6 and got $80 back!

          I play Cash 5 everyday, but the jackpots have fallen to around $25 grand. Lot of work for a little money, in my opinion. Think I'll give up on it and send more $$$ to Florida where a relative buys me tickets in their Fan5 game - which has a $250,000+ jackpot.

          By the way, I use my Gap Strategy systems, explained in a Pick 5 Forum post called Update to Pick 5, Pick 5+ and Pick 6 lotteries, for all of my plays.

          Give it a look. Might be something there you can use.

            I guess I am in the middle. I don't seriously track numbers everyday and I don't just go out and buy quick picks every draw either. Most times I pick my own numbers for drawings, but every now and then I buy a quick pick.

              I consider myself a "serious" player, although I don't win serious money, LOL.. I have yearly calendars dating back to 2003 with the numbers on each day, I have excel spreadsheets, I have vtracs in excel spreadsheets color-coded.  And, still can't win on a consistent basis.  :(

                If someone found themselves in a group of professional gamblers, and told them that they were a "serious player", and when asked what their game was, they said, "the lottery", they would get

                There are considered to be two entities in all of gambling that can be beat consistently, and they are poker and sports betting. And among those who make a living at them they would be the first ones to tell you not to even attempt it, it's just too tough of a way to go.

                Some will tell you they can make a living betting the ponies, but that's only true if they have prior knowledge of which jockey is going to pull back at the last second.

                        I guess I consider myself serious player as I do play alot. But I also really enjoy trying to figure out what # is coming out next or why the last # came out.  And of course I use birthdates and other such #"s when I play mega.  Guess I have heard about toooo many winners that used those type #'s

                        Money won is twice as good as money earned!

                          That's what I'm talking about also, Coin Toss. More of a "tracker". I just think I worded it wrong.
