I have seen people spend upwards of 100's of dollars playing the big games (and these peple play for themselves, not a pool).  When is enough, enough? Thoughts???Argue

      It all depends on the game .... On pick 3 and pick 4 the amount varies on how many sets I have any where from $10 to $200 plus for each 5 future draws and Lotto , Powerball and Mega-Millions from $3.00 to $75 plus for each 3 future draws ...I'm happy with the profit made on pick 3 and pick 4 games . The powerball and mega-millions games are Lagniappe ( A little some thing extra ) if I win anything or not . But ,the Powerball game must be over $100 million to play and Lotto games over $5 million .

        I feel that as long as it does not interfere with your responsibilities, then you should be O.K. You need to stick to a Budget no matter what. That is the key.

        Good luck !!!

        Keep moving Forward.

          as yo stated lotto and not all gambling, i can say ive never spent over $100 in a month. sometimes ive got close maybe  even capped it  like when they gave away a free ticket equakl to value of one you bought  once in a blue moon, i buy a few $20 maxi picks then but also usually go halves with someone to cut down the expenses.

           

          i remeber going halves with a mate on 4 x$20 plays,  i thiunk it was 32 lines and they double the quick picks so 256 lines for our $80

          thats about most i ever played.

          2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

          keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

                  If you come out ahead, nothings too much. Last time I played I went in with 430 dollars which was good for four draws. Enough for two straight hits. That's a crap load of numbers but I'm not good enough to play less combos. In the end it doesn't matter when your making money. :p

                  How you do anything is how you do everything.

                    i usually spend (around) $30/ week.

                     

                    sometimes less (if all the jackpots are low), sometimes more (if all JP are high).

                     

                    regardless, I never spend more than i can afford.

                        I spend maybe $10 a week, if I'm lucky.  Sometimes, I only spend $1 per game (MM and PB)  Just depends on the week.
