    Well naturally I'd call Mumsy and get some more money.

    She'd have to have it sent over because I'm already in my smoking jacket and silk ascot for the evening.

      Just move on. That's all I can do. Maybe next time I'll win.

        I'd go back and study the movement of the numbers from the last draw to the currrent one. Depending on where they are, I may or may not run the numbers back again. Timing and arrangement is paramount here.

          First thing i'd have to do is kick Joker in the butt for giving me such a crazy idea, next would be my husband for letting me sneak out of the house to do such a foolish thing...store clerk would get 2 kicks for taking my money, my boss would be on my s^%$ list forever for not paying me enough money to spend money like that, the church would never get another dime from me because i'm catholic and they encourage gambling  ( i'm still in the texas hold em tourney for next month though)but then after that no more from me.last but not least the lottery itself they should of known i was going to spend that much and they should of made sure i got at least 5 bucks back. yep, everyones fault but mine.

            Hmmmm. I'm not sure if you're kidding or not but, I'm gonna put a pencil to this just for reference's sake. Now, the amount spent was $75 and there are no details as to how it was spent...str8, boxed, or both. Next, we don't know if the $75 represents half of the total number count which could be (150) if playing str8 because $75 x 2 = $150 with the state which is actually more numbers than a total of (75).

            By comparison, if I spend around $75 online, this amount represents 1/4 of the total amount of money (numbers) involved which is (300). This is at .25 cents per combo, by the way. So, if you really look at what we have here, a total of (300) numbers played properly on a given draw for .25 cents has a much, much better chance of hitting than a total of (150) and especially (75). Not that they can't win, okay, but we're dealing with ODDS, APPLICATION, and VOLUME which all compliment one another in every play.

            Just because a person runs out and buys a bunch of Quick Picks doesn't mean they should or will win, okay. I'm not sure if his were QP or self selected but, HOW NUMBERS ARE PLAYED is priceless.

            Just breaking it all down...

            L.L.

                If winning was as easy as spending 75 bucks, we all would be rich. 

                I was looking at a site that sells so called productive combinations for PB and MM and they proudly showed off what a couple of their combinations had done over the last 6 months.  On won $34 and the other won $40 in 73 drawings.  Their point was that by using their combinations, you could win part of your money back which was better than the average lottery player does.

                  $75 in a single draw? I never spend more than $5 on a single draw. Actually the most I've ever spent on a single draw was $3. Then reality hits when my numbers don't match and I throw it in the trash.

                    There are LP members who post more than $8000 worth of numbers on the prediction board daily and are happy when they get bragging rights for a $100 fantasy win.

                      I'd probably go buy some more tickets for the next drawing. LOL Really though, I wouldn't spend that much on one drawing. I am a bit more conservative with my money when I play.
