    When you win more than $50 but less than $700, what do you do with the loot?

    Use the windfall for future plays (not wreckless betting) rather than other non-lottery spending.

    A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

      Depending on the amount I win, save some of it, pay a bill and buy/play more ticketsDance

        My only wins in that range have been $80 and $290 on a Pick 3s. 

        My wife gets half, I givve to some kind of charity, I consider Vetern's groups, the Olmpic Committee, and disease research and such as tithing also, and then to be honest I'd probably buy whatever book I've had my eye on.

        And throw an extra buck or two at the next drawing.

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

        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.

          glad to hear I am not the only who pay the wife tax on their lotto wins hehe.

           

          to answer the question, i would go with the "let it ride" mentatity until my luck wear out

            Most of mine goes to future tickets....I still have to win the jackpot Big Grin

            I also might pay a bill, or buy a little something I want at the time.

                  I keep 10% for myself to buy coffee and some cigarettes and the rest goes towards more tickets.

                          Rosey, sometimes you just gotta let the good times roll. In the end you won't regret what you did, you'll regret what you didn't do.

                          Like Rick Derringer said: "Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo, Lawdy Mama, Light My Fuse".

                          I concur!

                            Well, puking inside the saloon is not considered de rigueur in East Tennessee.

                            It is best done out in the parking lot where nature takes it's course through the natural order of things like gravel and nocturnal creatures that aren't too fussy about what they eat.  That way nobody has to clean it up and and nobody will slip and fall in it inside the saloon. Neither of those is a pleasant experience as you can well imagine.

                            We do have manners here, you know.

                            The last time someone puked in my local saloon I heard the barkeep yell out: "Hey! That ain't de rigueur!" and then all hell broke loose.
