    Job well done Luckyshoes.Hyper

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

              Geez, I feel very unlucky after reading these posts.  The most I have ever won is $7.00.  Grand total winnings in 8 years of playing is about $40.00.

              Need to really figure a way to change this trend.

              Oh well, there is always tonights MM to change the luck when I win

                Who are the 4 people that won $10 million dollars?? Lol.

                Now it's up to 7 LP voters who say they won $10million or more - I too would love to know who they are .... or if some folks are just playing jokes

                    Even though I won $10K, I'm behind. So don't feel so bad. If you are playing lighter, that is probably the smart way.

                    I play heavier when the prizes are bigger.

                    And I use comparison to the odds to decide what to invest in.

                    Better to put more into Ill Lotto for me which is about $5,775,000 for 1 in 10 mil odds.

                    PB and MM are bad, really bad.

                    In many ways I would rather play for $250,000 than $250,000,000.

                    But then again I don't play for $5,000 in P4 either...

                    Even though that 72 million cash in PB would be nice, I could do much with that $175,000 that Illinois little lotto would give me!

                        On 29 Dec. 2009, I won $100 playing Pick-3 Boost in Virginia. For those of you who do not know what Pick-3 Boost is, it is a special feature in Virginia. For an extra dollar, they print out five random numbers, and if you match one of them in exact order you win $100. That is what happened on 29 Dec. 2009. One of my Pick-3 Boost numbers was 068, and they drew 068 midday. (This was fairly interesting because 068 also won midday on 29 Dec. 2007)

                        Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                        In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                          That is why I've decided never to play these kinds of games again - the non-jackpot prizes are unfairly low. That's why I stick with Pick-3 and Pick-4.

                            I won $7 on PB and $10 on a scratcher that was given to me as a X-mas present about 4 years ago. When I first started dating the man who is now my hubby he won $500 on a scratcher. He has better luck than I do.:)
