Every time I win pick 3 my friends always brag that I won the lottery.. I don't see winning pick 3 classified as winning the lottery. I just see it as winning money as the pick 3 game.. same would go for pick 4 as well...

cash 5 might be different, maybe

but I really only see winning the lottery as actually winning one of the big jackpot games....

what does everyone think

          I'm with you.

          Matching six for six that wins a seven, eight, or nine figure jackpot.

          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.

            Definition for "Winning the Lottery":

            When you win a State / Multi-State jackpot and your take-a-way (after taxes, etc.) is enough to pay off your debts, your mortgage, give to family and charities and still take an early retirement with a solid investment portfolio funded by your winnings to generate income........Yep........That's how I define winning the lottery!

                      winning the lottery has to mean winning enough to drastically change your life.  enough to quit your job (my god, i can't stand reading how winners say thay are going to keep working!  such a waste of good luck on such people!) and do the things you love.

                        When playing any lottery game, a win is a win and you probably have beat the odds of winning but not every win is a jackpot win.  Winning a few dollars and even a few thousand dollars may not be a jackpot win but that doesn't mean it shouldn't count as a win.  Players who play pick3 don't expect to win a life changing amount of money even if they win a lot.

                         * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                          of course it all comes down to how we user language and those on LP may use certain words differently.  but in general when it is said so and so 'won the lottery', it is taken by most tomean they won a phucload.

                              "Winning the lottery"  That is when you spend/invest a fortune and break even  or at very best am ahead of the game and walk away with more money then you started with.
