      Realistically I excpect to NET win in the thousands...(guess ~$5,000) ..probably along the way there will be good wins and some bad losses but thats the way it goes...I don't think it is likely i will win a jackpot..i'll stick will pick 3 or pick 4 and take occassional shots at PB and MM when they get high enough ...

        This is similar to "how much to you bet?" so I'll just answer I spend between $10 and $20 a week. If I didn't expect to win more than I lose, I wouldn't play. I hope to win a jackpot, but I don't expect to or I'd be a little disillusioned.  I expect to win  .........    I deleted what I wrote after that because I don't want to jinx anything!  lol  It's only January and I started out with a small winning streak, so I hope it continues.  Nothing last night or tonight.  I don't think the lottery is the same as gambling on sports or playing pool or a card game like poker where there's a lot of skill involved.  Also, emotion doesn't influence the results.  I mean, who ever heard of someone saying "You never know what he's thinking. He has a real lottery face."

          Lottery face!

           A "true gambler" wouldn't have any expected win on lotto, a true gambler would regad it as pure luck that wins it.

          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.

            I have no idea how much I will win or lose this year. I will have to wait till the end of the year to find out. I do however hope to win more then I lose or spend.

                I'd love to win a jackpot or even a few thousand this year, but to be realistic, I will most like lose more than I win in the end. It's the sad truth of the lottery curse. Although, on the bright side, I have been on a winning streak with finding patterns with my system for the pick 3 and 4 games. Been backtesting and good results so far. Now I need to play it for real and not on paper. X <--- fingers crossed for the year !
