I limit myself to $3 per draw on PB or MM, whichever is biggest, since I never win anyway.

I'm not like people in New York who must walk up to the store counter with thick stacks of $100 bills in their hands to buy tickets with.

  Yeah,Ive seen those people,wad of cash 15 min of ticket printing-Then I play my 1dollar,but only when the cash value is more than 220mill!!

    I am not on a rush to win the lottery.But is important that i do not exceed my spending limit of $240 annually.The lottery has ruined many people lives because they do not have a spending limit when they play.You do not have to play the lottery everyday in order to win some day.But it is important to maximize your lottery budget without spending extra money or joining a lottery sindicate or as they call it a lottery pool.I am too lazy to go to the store and play lottery for every draw no matter how large the jackpot is. I  prefer to wait for the jackpot to reach my playing level.

    Why on earth is it important to MAXIMIZE your lottery spending budget?

    Why don't you develop your own system which will dictate to you what your budget is?

    Some folks have a 'system' that selects one set of numbers for them, some folks have larger 'systems', there is no good or bad way of playing, be it QP, pick your own, or pick 500 sets at a time, I pick two sets at a time, and sometimes my 'system' dictates that I play four sets, but not that often.

    Everyone has a way, to each their own.

      It is important to maximize because you increase your chances without spending more money.Lets say you spend $2 per drawing on mega millions or powerball, if you have the will power to skip a drawing you will have 4 chances on the next draw.It does not mean that you will win, but you having 4 chances in a particular drawing is better than 2 chances.My spending limit is $5 regardless of when i decide to play.But i have to agree with your post 100% there is no good or bad way of playing.I like to answer your posts because they are very thoughtful unlike RIDGE who posts and never answer back because he has nothing smart to say.LOL White BounceUS Flag

        Let me explain myself again.I stated that my spending limit is $5 a week, and i play $1 to $5 sometimes.I never exceed my $5 weekly budget.When you multiply 5 times 52 weeks that is equal to $260 annually.But my name is thrifty, i  did not want to spend $260 a year in lottery.So i set my spending limit to $240 annually.$5 times 4 weeks=$20 a month times 12 months=$240.But sometimes i feel like playing for $40 instead of $20, so i $240/6 months=$40, or maybe i just want to play 4 months out of the year.So i $240/4 months =$60.I do all this with $5 weekly budget.It is not easy not to play for 4 weeks in order to play $20 a month.You guys should try it.Some individuals have to play every draw, i can go without playing for many draws in order to increase my chances, whenever i decide to play.

          That's fine if you have a 'system' that allows you to do that, and actually, the numbers I see in the positions I track are too numerous to pick, unlike just about any time I have been playing this crazy game over the last six years.

          I still think you need to play at least one game every drawing, and that is what I am doing on 4/20, just one game.

              What?

              No comment?

              Nobody even wonders what the above chart means, or how to use it?

                Looks like a chart showing the last time Powerball white number hit or skip chart.

                I don't know if you use zero based or one-based when counting skips but the last draw had skip pattern of  02-03-05-13-32.

                So I would predict this draw would have skips of 02-05-08-18... so I like white balls 11-20-32-42 ... for tonights draw.

                How do you use your chart to predict next skip pattern?

                  I gave it my tacit approval.

                  And that's saying something when you consider my taciturn nature.

                    I'm in every draw, because even with the jackpot starting over, it's enough $ for me to never ever sell another stick of furniture. And, you just never know when it's your time to win.

                          RJ: it was a test to see if anyone could notice anything on their own. After all the years you and I have been on here, you should know that by now, LOL.

                          If I say ahead of time what it is or especially what I notice, that would defeat the purpose, maybe someone else will see something I don't. If someone replies, fine, if not, that's OK too.

                            Looks like a chart showing the last time Powerball white number hit or skip chart.

                            I don't know if you use zero based or one-based when counting skips but the last draw had skip pattern of  02-03-05-13-32.

                            So I would predict this draw would have skips of 02-05-08-18... so I like white balls 11-20-32-42 ... for tonights draw.

                            How do you use your chart to predict next skip pattern?

                            No skip pattern perse'. I don't believe in skip patterns, I am a 'contrarian' player.

                            As well as there being lines of numbers in descending hit order, it is important to know the COLUMNS those numbers are in - 1-2-3-4-5.

                            There is also one important aspect of number selection people totally ignore, and that is number DEselection. Folks try to pick numbers, but sometimes you have to eliminate numbers as well, for reasons only you can employ.

                            There is no way I can list everything here, and for some silly reason nobody is allowed to share websites or e-mail addresses, so I cannot send anyone info that I may want to work closely with.

                              I'm in every draw, because even with the jackpot starting over, it's enough $ for me to never ever sell another stick of furniture. And, you just never know when it's your time to win.

                              Most people have not figured that out.

                              It's funny as heck because I play every draw.

                              Where I work we have an office pool, but that pool only starts when the JP is over $100 million dollars, these idiots have not figured that, between the 12-25 people that join this 'pool', they won't win nearly as much as if they just play on their own even at the beginning JP amount. I throw a buck into the office pool just to be part of the gang, but I also play my own set of numbers outside of it.

                              I am under no illusions.
