    Remember how I said the odds are the same whether you spend 15 or 1500? Yeah. I was right. Not to be snooty, but maybe you guys should take a statistics class instead of imparting your own "logic" into beating the lottery system? Buying rolls doesn't increase your chances unless you buy 12,000 of them.

        So even if you win 2nd prize of 25k, you're still down like 10k right?

                  That was me a few months ago, it was hard stopping for good cause the next day you always have that "what if..." thought in your head but I think you're making the right choice. If possible just buy a ticket every now and then, like if you have to get gas grab one ticket and bring it home to scratch. Most jackpot winners either play every now and then or play a ticket a week or something before work. You never really hear about hardcore players hitting jackpots....

                          Just don't play any more than you are comfortable with losing.

                          When I play, I know I am only going to get about 50% back over time. The odds are clearly published, so you just gotta know what you are dealing with. Depending on the game, sometimes you get more, sometimes you get less. You just keep playing and maybe one day lady luck might smile on you. Have a budget for your lotto entertainment and try to stick to it.

                          I'd feel bad about $800 in a week too, so I don't play anywhere near that much. If you are gonna buy a couple of rolls a week, then you have to be comfortable with losing several hundred per week no matter what.
