    So stop playing? I know this is pretty much the enabler forums, but what you're doing is just stupid, man. $1000 in two days is insanity, do you spend every single dollar you earn on scratchers?  The odds are stacked against you bro, you gotta just quit cold turkey. Sorry if it's harsh, but I noticed there's not a lot of common sense around these forums, lots and lots of excuses and enabling. Give it up, it's for the best.

      brothadan its time to take a break like the above poster said, $1k is pretty bad for two days I have had losses like that in a very short time but I always take a long break after...

      take a break, pay your bills, and save up to play later down the road...or you could just quit altogether.

      like I said a few days ago, I'm not buying any tickets cause I'm saving up for one last day to get a big win and if it doesn't happen I'm quitting for good. If I saved up all the $$ I lost on scratch-offs I could've had a 10k jackpot by now. 

      best of luck man, at the very least I think you need to take a long break.

          I lost $1,000 also just in the last 3 days. Today it went so quickly I did not even realize I was down so much until I checked my bank account. I always feel bad at night but a few drinks and the next day make me want to give it another shot. Its useless.

            Isnt that the sad truth. Here I am buying thousands $$$ worth of tickets hoping for a $10K win when I had $10K to begin with.

              Indeed it is. At this point I need a solid $10K win, minus $2500 or so for taxes.

              My losses are anywhere in the range of $6,500-$10,000, sadly. It could've probably been $4K if I didn't get greedy and reinvest my wins into more tickets so often Roll Eyes

                  You should just mail your paycheck directly to the lottery headquarters, save yourself some time.

                  Man, you realize that you'd need three $500 wins (when it's hard enough to get one), and you wouldn't even break even for the WEEK? I feel like I have some sort of responsibility as a human being to tell you that you're completely delusional and truly throwing your money away. I pray that you don't have a family to support. If I knew someone spending over $500 a day on drugs I'd say the same thing to them.

                   If you absolutely, positively HAVE to play, why not just buy one ticket a day? If it wins, buy more. If it loses, it's not your day and you should stop. This is the method I use. Today, I bought a $20 ticket, and won $20. So I got another, and won $20 again. Got another, won $30. Got three $10 tickets with that money, and lost all. So then I stopped. I essentially played 7 tickets for $20.

                    @Brothadan

                    We are both on an unlucky streak it seems. I feel the same as you and I need that $10K badly right now. Might be best to hit up different stores then the ones you are currently buying tickets from. I came very close to wins at my local stores and I feel as though I missed the train there. Luck is toying with me.

                      snagsnag, i understand what you are trying to say but its the feeling of losing over 10k and wanting it back or that feeling of trying to win that jackpot. i am going to try and set a limit for myself per day.

                      james, hopefully we will hit a big one soon....i need that $10k and higher badly also......luck is really mean to me........

                          a whole roll of $20 or $30?? lol $1000 or $1500 for a roll....never put any thought into that because its expensive...ive only bought 2 rolls the past year...a $5 roll and a $10 roll......and once i bought x10 $30 tickets for $300 and only got like $170 back.

                            I dont know about NY but in Florida the $5 games are the biggest rip off. Bad odds , low prizes and not many prize tiers. They put 2nd chance promotions on a lot of them so the cash prizes suffer as a result. 

                            I know several players around my area that have made out well with $20 rolls. A few $10K wins too. 

                            Buying tickets in the store on an opened roll you never know who bought the ticket before you start and how much it won.

                              Haha, sounds like what I do except I replace the booze with sticky, dank weed. Alcohol gets me much more depressed after losing serious $$

                              It looks like I'm going on my scratch-off spree towards the start of summer, like early May. Until then i'll spend a dollar or two on jackpot games so you won't hear much from me for a little while..

                              Good luck and think wisely people
