 If you have a feeling that your number was about to fall.  How much

would you spend on a  favorite?  Would you have scare money? or

Play to win big?Hyper

      I have occasionally put 20 bucks on a pick 3 or 4 number, i know guys that put 30 bucks on their favorite pick almost every day.

      Since no one knows the outcome of a drawing i wouldn't recommend doing this every day. Unless you have a lot of disposable cash.

          Just curious, you won $2.00 on a play4 number?
          That seems a little low for a play4 payout...
          Maybe you did a typo? Did you mean $200?
          Good luck to you charmed7.

            I would put $100.00 straight the highest, on "1846".

            That would be a nice $500,000.00 payout Eek

            I have a feeling "1846" will hit straight soon so I wouldn't mind putting $50.00 straight on it for a nice  $250,000.00 prizeYes Nod

            Sometimes it's sold out when I try to play it so I have to play for Days in advance to avoid getting sold outRoll Eyes

              We don't have pick 4 here, but if I had a feeling about a number, I would probably only spend about $5 - $10 on it. I can't see myself putting $50 or more on one number. I'm not that big of a risk taker. LOL

                $20.00 to $40.00 depending on the feel for that #.  There was a widow in michigan who had been playing her husbands birth year or maybe death year and had it come in straight last year i think with $80.00 for a $400,000 win.  God bless and good luck.

                        Yeah, most people say it's a dumb idea, but I would do it anyway. I wouldnt mind winning $250,000.00 "If" the # does actually hit. 1 in 10,000 odds are hard to beat, but it's been five years since that # hit straight and I think it may have a chance to come back soon!

                          Have not gave it a try. When I have a feeling for it, and the cash, I would put down $10 to start off. $100 is a bit too much for me.

                            I think the best approach is to focus on what one expects to collect rather than how much one bets. For example suppose I feel that 477 will play within the next  10 drawings, and my objective is to collect one thousand dollars, I would have to combo it for 3 dollars X  2 =6 X 10 = 60.00. Repeat four more times if necessary and draw the line at 300.00. This is a balanced money management system that works out in the long run at 3 to 1 odds.
