 This forum should have Gambling help topic board on here,  just like the lottery tries to help people who have a problem I think this message board should too, I think this forum should also try and help people out since some on here may be gambler addicts who just need a helping hand..

    As an independent Web site, I don't think we're really qualified to offer advice and/or assistance for addiction.  Fortunately, every official state lottery Web site offers links to sources for gambling addiction help.  So anyone who feels they have a problem should go to the official site of their state lottery and find the section dealing with addiction.

       Thanks for your input Todd.  Maybe in the future the site can have a small link somewhere to a gambling help website..  Let me rest-a-sure everyone that helping others out that have gambling problems is one of the best ways to gain good luck, One of my friends who helps me help others who have gambling problems won a top prize on a $5 dollar scratch ticket just a few months ago after I tought him methods of scratch lottery, now he is doing what I am doing and reaching out to others. Sometimes helping others is the way to win!

       

      Good luck and please play responsibly!!

        Playing Responsibly: It's only a game!

        If you play the Lottery, here are some things to keep in mind:

        Money needed for daily expenses should not be used for playing the Lottery.

        Set a limit. Don't chase your losses and risk getting deeper into a hole.

        Set some winnings aside for other purposes.

        Winning and losing are both part of playing the Lottery and other gaming activities. If you're only prepared to win, you're not prepared to play the Lottery.

        Playing the Lottery is a recreational activity and not an alternative to work.

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