What do you do for a living?

I did work in the oil fields in So. Calif. for 20 yrs. and retired early. I moved to Nevada and was in a dirk bike accident and became disabled. I live nicely on my investments that I made in the late 70's and throughout the 80's and early 90's. I Thank my lucky stars I cashed them all out before the stock market crash. So I now live somewhat nice on the money I made from those investments and my SSD.

Keep dreaming the impossible dream, it just may come true! Thumbs Up

    The most I have spent was $60 on 1 Mass Cash (Massachusetts pick 5 game) drawing. I think I only won like $20 on those tickets.

      The most i spent on a single draw was $17 on all 3 games hot lotto, mega millions and powerball so that = $51

       

      oh, and i won $0 because stupid me played all quick picks now I only play about $3 on each draw and play around with my numbers and the quick pick numbers.

            In California, we have whole families who pool their money to buy Lotto tickets (Naturally, I'm the poor schlep behind the guy who buys all those tickets, waiting patiently for half an hour) They may buy as many as 200 picks, which significantly improves the odds of winning something. I don't even worry about the Lotto or Mega drawings until they accrue 50 million dollar jackpot amounts. Even then, I'll buy 3 bucks worth just to say I played.

              About $15 dollars. But I don't do that very often. I try to stay around $5 or less a drawing.

                          At the time I had $9,000 from a 401K that I cashed out. I back tested a Pick 3 system for the previous month using MID to MID, EVE to EVE, and finally MID AND EVE together as if there was only one drawing. I noticed a definite pattern, and the next day, Monday, I played a $1 COMBO on 9 different numbers. Each number was a $6 bet. I also had some other "Any Order"(Box) bets. I won $820 and had my picture hanging on the cash register for a long time.  Should have stuck with that system! LOL
