    Your time will come!!

    It would be interesting to poll all of the large JP winners and see how much they have "lost" over the years before they made their big gain.  I think it would give us some hope <3

        I'm ahead $100 of where I was this time last year in losses.  I don't expect that to last very long as I'm spending more this year trying to win more than I did last year.

          I have a family member that won a JP that netted $11,000.  (I know, you're wondering how can a JP net 11 grand?  It was a New York Take5 JP of $68,000 split by four winners. Each winner got $17,000 minus $6,000 in taxes.)

          My relative told me that they had been regularly playing the lottery for over 20 years. They figured that they probably won back about 80 to 85 percent of all the money they had lost in that 20+ years.

          They do not believe they are "ahead".  They said the only way they could believe they won more than they lost during those 20 years, would be if they had won at least $250,000.

          About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!

            I hit $5k on a scratch off (which I only play occasionally) and I play pick 3 at least once every other day. Hit $5,000 on one drawing and $1,000 a couple other. Now that schools done for this semester, I'm hoping I can start focusing in again on some big hits!

                      Somewhat ahead over the past decade or so.  I was behind for several years but gradually pulled forward and balanced the sheet a couple of years ago.  From then to now it's been more ups than downs, but close to the centerline.
