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...


Yes i was kidding..my allowance for the week is only $20.00..15 for daily 3 and 5 for powerball.

    You spent 75 bucks, and the tickets didn't win.....Now what?

    What is the first thing you'd do?

    It is the nature of the business-you play trying to win, but knowing you will probadly lose.  What can you do??? Ask for your money back.  You should budget any amount of money when playing the lottery or even gambling at casinos, because this is "play" money to take a risk with. I really don't understand the real logic of this question.  If you spent $1.00 and didn't win, how is that any different???  You determine if the risk is worth to spend all of that money on one particular game and not see any winning results--this is no different than playing the slots in Las Vegas.
