I don't have a set budget, but I tend to stay within $15-$25 a week. It depends on what games I play that week though.

    I usually don't do more than $20 a week ($10 for PB and MM, $5 on each draw). If it's a big draw or I have a feeling then I may put an extra $5 down. Sometimes I'll go over and sometimes I will skip a week so it tends to balance out.

    This Friday/Saturday is a good example. I didn't buy tickets for tonight but tomorrow (technically later toda) I will play between $5-$10 on Powerball. I may go up to $20 but that isn't likely. Playing only $10 this week instead of $20 most weeks cancels out up to $10 extra I play another week.

    (And I can't seem to type tonight so sorry for any misspellings)

      I'm flexible, a couple of bucks either way.

          I play around $10.00 per day which covers day/night draws. I usually hit at least 3 or 4 times a week, but I'm only betting at 50 cent per play. If I feel very confident about a number, I might put more money on it, it just depends on the feel before the draw.

            I like 'odd numbers' and amounts, so whatever i spend its always an odd number.

             

            usually 7 tickets for the big games (PB,MM) per drawing

            sometimes 2 tickets for the pick 5 game- usually only on the big game nights (so... tues, wed, fri, sat)

             

            - averages to $9 per draw date

             

            so whats that come to? $28-$38 per week, depending on if i get pick 5 tiks... ( i play $1 tickets only)

              Always go over my budget with no luck of course because in NC you never know what will come out
