It's true James....my biggest thing is, I do NOT chase a win. I just let it happen. Only once in my life have I ever chased a win. I will never do it again. I buy a couple here and a couple there and hope for the best.
Like everyone else, I have good days and bad. Most I have ever spent in a single day is probably $300 but that's rare.
Good luck to you guys!
B$Rizzle, I can relate to this and it's very true. I agree fully with your statement about not chasing wins.
That is the best way to slit your own throat. I think the key is different stores, one or two tickets MAX from
each bin...I play up to 2 on $20's, up to 2 on $10's, go up to 4 on $5's and $2's and $1's at 10 - 20 at a
time. On the $10 tickets, if I find a small winner, typically I'll stay away from buying another of those..if
I find a loser or 2, I'll go back and try one more...and whatever comes, then I will stop..winner or
loser. IMO, you just can't play 10 of them in a row. In that case, I think what happened is someone was
in and found a decent winner and the tickets will not pay anything for the next 10 or more. It's a frame
of mind you have to go in with James. I think rather than 'knowing' the winner is there somewhere, you
have to think more along the lines of: if it isn't here in one or two, then it's time to hit another store and
buy one or two.
Sometimes on days where the $20's do not seem to be giving anything worthwhile, I'll go in and put
money in the machine and go straight across the lower priced tickets buying one of each..that's a combo
of $5's, $3's and $2's and $1's. Then depending on what those look like, go back to a particular slot and
buy a couple more..I have found the best way to play them is to know when to stop. Going to different
stores is also key..but take the same game plan with you. I've found many winners on the first ticket out
but when I didn't, I stopped playing that bin.
GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE TODAY
