With Pick-3, when you can't decide and the amount you're going to have to play starts to look like the prize you're trying to win, put the money back in your pocket.    BobP

    If you've ever played PowerBall or MegaMillions when their jackpots were $100M+ and you would have been happy to match 5+0 for $200K or $250K then any time you want to play those games it's time to play.

                Honest and Appropriate Answer to your Question is You got to learn how to play the lottery and then only you can know when not to play certain numbers.. to learn how to play can take as much as 10 years of hard work round the clock for 10 years.... Depending on which lottery you wish to play too varies....

                Yeah, I am still waiting to hit the Mega Million!

                Question? How do you know when to stop playing, when you see you don't have money, and you are not winning, it is time to stop, or give it a break.

                  Good Question.  I am now working on that very idea. 

                  I would not mind putting $1,000 on a P5 game if I had a high degree of confidence I would win.  Heck, I might even do it more than once.  I would never put more than $1 on any game in which I had little or no confidence.  Therefore I am presently searching for criteria which would indicate a high probability of generating a winning combination. 

                  Meanwhile I keep my money in my pocket, keep tracking numbers, keep looking for "signs", keep reading the blogs, the history within the forums, that sort of thing.

                      Before I retired, I and some of my co-workers put $500 on a game and I promised myself I would never do that again.  We didn't win anything but that wasn't the worst part.  Making out 100 play slips correctly was a lot of work and we had three days between drawings.  I can't image trying to make out 200 play slips between drawings when most pick5 games have daily drawings.

                      Of course, I play a different sets of combinations for each drawing and don't pick a new set until I've updated all my files which only allows me the time between drawings to come up with new combinations and make out play slips .

                        What exactly does this mean?

                        How does what you wrote help with making the decision as to when not to play the lottery?

                         

                        I think if anyone needs help it would be you pyskomo.

                          I suppose the answer is different for everyone. I think I would stop playing, if the playing was no longer fun or if I didn't have the money to do it. At this point, I haven't reached either of those terms, so I will keep playing!
