Since I only play the Pick-3 (along with the occasional scratcher), I play 5 numbers per night straight/box, for a total outlay of $10/night. I find that sticking to this strategy, along with a decent system, keep me playing at a profit overall.

    If you're playing at a profit with $10/night, wouldn't the same strategy and system work 10 times better with $100/night?

      good question.  if we could afford to play one ben for every draw, chances are we wouldn't be playing in the first place. lol

      i've been playing between dark moons and full mooons lately--just a feeling.

        The only time I go over $5 is if I have winning tickets of any kind that I trade in for Wa.Lotto tickets or MM tickets.  And I did spend $10 twice when MM was over 300M.  Would of loved to have a chunk of that! But didn't get zilch lol.

         

        I play $1-$5 on Wa.Lotto depending on the JP amount, and I play $2-$5 on MM depending on the JP amount.  I go off of what I can afford period.  And the only time I will change the amount is if the JP is real big, and even then, I usually don't walk away with anything.

        I keep my losing tickets in a box.  I have them all separated by game, and when I'm curious, I grab all the MM tickets....a pretty thick stack over a long period of time, and I compare them to the latest drawing just to see if maybe buying lots of tickets...singles...2 liners...5 liners etc at different places would help.  By time I'm done looking at all the tickets, I see that I would of won maybe $7 total lol SO..I know that it dosen't do me any good to buy a lot of tickets..I'll just stick to a few and hope for the best.

        Surrender You can run, but you can't hide mighty Jackpot...surrender to me at once!

          I've been playing $3 per MM and Fantasy 5, quick picks. Been researching and all, recently I am into QP now. Something about number 3 draws my attention. 3rd time is a charm perhaps? :D

            I risk $10.00 per play with HOT LOTTO Sizzler option and $2.00 per play with POWERBALL, the Powerplay option because the odds of winning, in my opinion, are greater with HOT LOTTO than POWERBALL.

            See Ya!-- Bye, bye!  When you win, may you glow as brightly as theSun Smiley

              I have been spending $7/ week playing Tue x 2. I did win $100 from a free ticket so I bought 5 tue x 2 tickets at $7 ea for $35. New Year's day I will find out how many tickets I have won and hope to get lucky enough to win another $100 or the bigger amout of $22k
