We often play at a grocery store, at the service counter. The people in this sotre are pretty good, they print out the MidDay results right away and always have playslips for all games available.

Sometimes we encounter a stroker who, despite the playslips, wants to "stroke" the clerk and tell them the numbers, and these people are always playing multiple games.

The store finally put a sign up that more than three sets of Pick 3 or Pick 4 must be filled out on a playslip.

But the stroker of the day today was at the scratcher machine.

A guy had won $50 on a scratcher, and put it in the machine. As you folks know, these machines don't give change. Well, instead of getting $50 in tickets, he starts getting ticke one by one, scratches them to see if he'd won anything, and then get another ticket. So all the while he's playing off the $50 credit in the machine, using it up $1, $2, and $5 at a whack. This while other people were waiting to use the machine.

STROKER!

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.

    Them are the ones that make you wish we still had frontier justice.

    Or that old Tennessee murder defense: "he needed killin'".
