Let's do a 'complete the sentence' thread for fun.

You know you've been playing the lottery for a while when.......

Your platic ticket lottery wallet they give out says The Big Game on it.

You find playslips used as bookmarks in books you've read years ago.

Somebody talking about something else entirely mentions a date and you know what numbers were drawn.

You have playslips from two or three matrix changes ago.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

Lep

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.

    When the lottery clerk knows you so well that she has a pet name for you - like Sugar Britches for example.

      When you have so many lottery related emails you need to set up an email address just for the pools you run.

       

      When one of the thickest files in your file cabinet is the one with the old tickets in it.

        You know you've been playing the lottery for awhile when......

                            you can call in your numbers to your favorite store...

                            you enter the store and everyone yells your name and approach you for hints...

                            you open your purse to tip your waitress and lottery tickets fall out..(or maybe I play too much..or clean out my purse!)

            Oh that's me! My purse is full of lottery tickets, and especially all the marking slips! lol  They are always sticking up out of my purse, when I go to pay for anything. I have to hurry and stuff them back in, and I know everybody up at the corner store already thinks I'm NUTS, due to my obsession with buying lottery tickets. Crazy

                  when the first thing you do in the morning when you get up is log onto LP, and the last thing you do at night before bed is log off of LP.    Of course throughout the day , you check in multiple times like I do.

                   

                   Good Luck,

                    I keep looking in my purse for wining tickets, and the ticket says, "Jan. 10th, 2010 579" and the winning number is Jan. 12, 2010.

                    When you have a shoe box full of old lottery tickets, lottery books, lol.

                            When you can walk into the store and recite your numbers you're playing without handing the clerk your betslip, and he prints them out without your bet slip.
