This was an interesting discussion, I feel like a puppy in this because I thought spending 10.00 in NC was bad, (of course I play .50 numbers). You all make me feel way way way out of my league.  I must up the ante in NC & VA.  I have never played more than 30.00 on a draw.  Now when I visit the local OTB for horse racing I play alot more. The funny thing is the other week I won over 800.00, well it was on a dime bet in which I spent 1.20, I caught myself after the win still making dime bets.  I got to get some nerves up and spend more!

Only spend what you can AFFORD TO LOSE while still leaving yourself more opportunities to play. It's a balancing act between spending enough to get the desired hit, making profit, and losing while still being able to play again and win on the next round.

I like to think of these smaller games as a form of art. Don't over spend yourself, okay.

    I use to spend about 150.00 a day. I think it take money to make money. I stop telling people what

    I spend they think you're crazy. I had to tell some it my money. I don't spend like that since I've being

    laid off. this weekend I spend about 200.00 I spend $77.00 midday monday. Since I don't have the money to spend like I use to scare money to me make no money.

    I feel you on this, pepper. The only people that truly understand why I play the way I do, and am successful, are my dad and five others which I've taught how to really play the game. All of them understand that it does take money to make it.

    Also requires dedication, skill, and being attentive to the draws at all times. In other words, it's another job but, it pays very well in an extremely short period of time.

    I love my soon-to-be full-time job...and I mean that!!

      RL,

      My lotto play was about $2.43 a day until Illinois got Powerball with the Powerplay and added the Megaplier to Mega Millions. I usually throw two bucks at the higher jackpot so that took the $2.43 to a screaming $2.57.

      I'm a firm believer that lotto is a dollar and a dream, just like one of the member's here says in their signature.

      I know the Pick 3 crowd isn't after a jackpot so their play is different, but $500 a week is pretty strong no matter what the game. People who can play like that azre playing more for diversion than hoping for any life changing windfall. They probably don't need a life chaning windfall.

      _______________________________

      MZDufflekBaglady,

      If you won $50 and played $20, win or lose, you were still playing with "house money", no biggie, nothingv to feel bad about.

      ________________________________

      LL,

      Right you are. No matter the game, any form of gambling involves streaks of one way or another and even the gutsiest player will run into a sustained losing streak. Even if they can afford it they will be playing "catch up football" for awhile. And if they can't afford it, that sustained losing streak will ruin them.

      Lotto is different, but in table games the house limit was established so someone with a big enough bankroll coiuldn't keep making bets until they won. And even if they did, starting with a $1 bet and let's say 10 straight losses on a double up system, they'd be risking $1024 to show a net win of $1.

      Lotto doesn't do that to you, that's part of the draw, the payoffs are so much sweeter.

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      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.

        I am happy for the ones who make money at it if you spend $500 a week but I have a monthly budget for lotto.  It is usually between $100 and $200 a month and I only play the big pots like powerball, mega millions and my state lottery megabucks.  Good luck to you guys though.-weshar75

          I'm not in the same boat as some. I'm bailing out water in my boat. I only spend about $28 a month playing Tue X 2 hoping to win either the 22k or if i hit on a Tuesday 44k

                CT, I was raised on the old saying, "A scary man can't gamble and a jealous man can't work". As far as I'm concerned, it holds true. Never had a problem with the jealous part but, when I started to bet bigger I was definitely afraid to lose any of what I had worked so hard for.

                Well, I ended up losing some of the profit I made...several times but not consecutively. After this happened, I was no longer afraid to bet bigger. Every new thing requires removing one's self out of their comfort zone in order to move forward and grow into the new zone.

                You're right, it's not for everybody and everyone here is on a different level. I don't encourage anyone to drop a chunk of money on numbers they're not pretty sure of because if they don't hit, it's all gone.

                my pick 5 or divide by 195,349 for power ball.  Then ask who's scared.  I know a guy that will toss 1,500

                a day down.  When he retired he had enough to live the rest of his life, I said had.  I know many people

                that will spend 10,000 to win 5,000 and you would think they had won powerball.  I can't see any 

                logic in that type of play.  I once hit for over $37,000 before taxes with a $16.00 play and none of

                it went back in.  I don't think your saying applies to playing lottery.  I have one for you "A Fool and

                  On the prediction board, some members post more than $1000 worth of numbers daily.   Their statistics don't show that spending money will make money.

                  While I usually play $10-$20 on the big jackpot games, I some times generate a $100+ worth of numbers and in most cases had I played them I would have lost $80 more than I actually lost.

                    RL, the Pick games are, in fact, games with odds, okay. They are designed to MAKE THE STATES CONSISTENT MONEY which is why they're set up as such in terms of odds. A small wager from the consumer goes a loooooooong way when you multiply it by thousands.

                    In regards to you not understanding the logic, let me help you. When a person, as you, hits with $16.00 and wins $37,000, that's good but it's also luck my friend. Can you do it AGAIN? Have you done it AGAIN since then?

                    Yeah, I know, I know. When a person hits like that, they don't have a real need to hit again. Cool, but you CAN'T DO IT AGAIN and I'll guarantee that with every cent I have, buddy. The reason I play so many sets of "quality" numbers and settle for a low consistent profit is because I can do it over and over again regardless of the dollar amount. It's all in my approach which makes it work so well. Therefore, I will continue to spend good money to get my hits because you don't fix something which isn't broken.

                    You can't duplicate that $37,000 win again, RL, but I can duplicate ANY WIN AGAIN. There's a difference...trust me. I'm not arrogant, okay, I just tell the truth. Congratulations on that big win. I look forward to many of those very soon.

Too many possibilities to rule out that more numbers simply don't work. After all, the game is based on a total and fixed number count.

                          I have met many who have the same. My only complaint was your comment that puts everyone in the scared

                          nutshell who plays dirrerently then you.  The guy I mentioned above had many winning streaks of 10.000

                          or more but in the end, time will tell.  I have hit many 5 of 5 on paper and I think it will be only a matter or

                          time, and time will tell with this also.

                              Try your luck on a game with some odds,  Pick-3 is a 1000 to 1.  Divide your winnings by 575 for my

                              my pick 5 or divide by 195,349 for power ball.  Then ask who's scared.  I know a guy that will toss 1,500

                              a day down.  When he retired he had enough to live the rest of his life, I said had.  I know many people

                              that will spend 10,000 to win 5,000 and you would think they had won powerball.  I can't see any 

                              logic in that type of play.  I once hit for over $37,000 before taxes with a $16.00 play and none of

                              it went back in.  I don't think your saying applies to playing lottery.  I have one for you "A Fool and 

                              his money are soon parted"  You may have a good system that returns a good return and I am

                              happy for you, but to say something like that is arrogant.       

                              RL

                              One more thing, RL. You, nor anyone else here has even remotely been exposed to my approach to understand how and why it works. I'm nothing like 90% of players which like to chase every draw every day. I play when the time is right, according to my game, and I'm successful with it...very successful.

                              I play the Pick because they're much easier to manage and win on, okay. You can have the Cash/Fantasy 5 and all those others. I know better. I like being able to duplicate wins because I can depend on that money.

                              You know, it's funny how you decided to target me regarding that old saying I mentioned and two other people said the exact same thing. CoinToss and Pepper1 said it, too. But, you picked ME as the arrogant one. Hmmmm.

                              It's all good, though. I ain't mad at nobody...just take it with a grain of salt.
