what was the game that got you started playing the lottery?

 

mine was cash 3 back in the spring of 2004 here in tennessee.

Powerball in 2005.  I figure if I'm destined to win a jackpot, I want it to be in the millions category!Smile

      I hate to admit this but it was TN's debut instants...  Then I went to Cash 3 and then it was Powerball.  After that I fell in love with lotto 5...  Then in 2007 they switched to RNG and all the fun went down the toilet.

      How are you going to win if you don't play?

        Well I got my first scratch off lottery ticket when I was like 12 or 13. My mom would buy me one every now and then. And on some occassions, I would choose some numbers for Pick 5 and Pick 6 games and she would buy me a ticket. Of course, this wasn't on a regular basis. I just got to play some tickets a few times a year.

          The late 70s, with scratchers in New York. I never won anything but a few bucks.

          The first lottery ticket was the big one (lotto) about 1987 in New York, right after I got out of the Navy.

            I got 'hooked' by working a NY Lottery machine at a store back in 1988.  There would be a line of 20 people waiting to play from 5pm to 7:30 each night (3 &4 way cut off @ 7:30).  That was back when they didn't have a machine in EVERY store, so you would have lines of people at each one.   

            Money won is twice as good as money earned!

                  You know LottoMike, I truly can't remember-I only regularly play super lotto plus, a scratcher every blue moon but I have no idea what started it.  I have only been playing a little less than two years.  Go figure.

                    I used to buy Powerball quick picks once in a great while, but started getting more interested in the lottery this past year when I realized all of the statistics that can be generated.  I am a software engineer so I program all of my own stuff (much easier than complicated pencil/paper workouts if ya ask me), and I'm also optimistic so I like to take my chances :)

                      daily 3 and four.   If i can get my husband to sit long enough. We can come

                      with some good ones.  We always play our license plates heavy, kids and

                      grandkids birthdays.   2878 has been very good to us.  It's an old license

                      plate.
