This goes for all number games, anything from a 50 cent box hit on a pick 3 to a 2 of 5 for $1 on a Pick 5 to 5 of 6 on a Pick 6 for whatever your state pays for that.

We'll assume that a 5 + 0 on MM or PB wouldn'l all go back into lotto for this one. If it would, call GA right now!

So how much do you have to win before you lock up part of the winnings, or go out and buy something, or just not put it all back in the lottery?

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.

      If you win the PB you could even afford a live-in masseur and dressing valet.

       

      Funny thing is, I'm taking a correspondence on those things right now. What a coincidence.

            I have alway spent more on lotteries than I've won so eventually everything I've ever won and more have gone back into them and it will alway be that way unless I win a jackpot or second prize in MM or PB. 

            Years ago I matched 5of6 in the Ohio Super Lotto for $1500, even though I didn't go right out and buy $1500 worth of tickets, I had already spent $600 on tickets that year when I won it and at the end of that year I had over $2000 worth of losing tickets.

             * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

              Hey Coin,

              Since you used the term "All"  I answered $20.  When I won that small amount I played extra in QPs and a few scratchers and kept the rest.  But When I won $50, I bought groceries will all of it.  When I won $372 I paid all on monthly bills. 

              When I finally win my Fantasy Five,  I will put a new roof on the house and recarpet it.  When I win the SLP I will put this house on the market and meet with a BUILDER!!!!!!!

                RJOH,

                "I have alway spent more on lotteries than I've won so eventuallyeverything I've ever won and more have gone back into them and it willalway be that way unless I win a jackpot or second prize in MM or PB. "

                Good point, but less say you won something "decent" and went out and treated yourself to something you wouldn't normally buy otherwise. Then that particular win wouldn't have all gone back into lotto. You'd come out of your pocket with more later, sure, but having bought something you'd have something to show for it is what I guess I'm saying.

                lottocalgal,

                "When I finally win my Fantasy Five,  I will put a new roof on the house and recarpet it. "

                I hear you. I'm thinking someone, probably rdgrnr, is going to reply to you and say something about why would you recarpet a roof!

                Sorry, couldn't resist.

                    I like to let it ride on my usual picks for the next drawings and usually add a couple QP's with it along the way.

                    When I hit something a little bigger like the 5 of 6 I got one time I went out and had some leather chaps and vests custom made and got a new leather coat, boots, gloves and all like that. I was all leathered up by the lottery! (Some wimmins are really into leather too, hee hee hee)

                            Actually I consider buying lottery tickets a special treat as it's part of my entertainment budget.  Any winnings less than what I might spend in a year on tickets doesn't count as anything "special", it just lowers my cost of playing.  I would still have to win a jackpot or second prize in MM or PB to treat myself to something I wouldn't normally buy otherwise.
