My take on the whole concept is... don't play until u have a reliable system... i just try to develop a system as a hobby... risk free... I for one never play the lottery because I haven't developed a reliable system... but it's fun to try to develop one and predict the numbers.... I for one doubt if such a system will ever be 70 percent win /loss ratio... but you can substitute your gambling addiction into a hobbby of trying to predict the numbers without risk... works for me!

I follow this philosophy as well.  The money I have spent on the lottery over the years might add up to a good meal at a steak house.  I spend my energy in researching system, ideas, algorithyms, and what not.  I save my money for the day when I find something worth gambling my money.

I feel that the lottery people own all the numbers.  They just rent you one for a draw or two.  They always win.

    I have not won since the middle of april. i feel like im coming so close many times to winnin one day but i keep losin. i dont remember the last time i didnt win for a whole month and  on the verge of that this month. i have told my self many times after a long drought of losing im going to quit playin the numbers but i cant break myself from playin. what can i do?

    Don't quit playing because you've lost more than you've won.  Losses are par for the course!  How could the state lotteries stay in business if the average person was ahead?

    Think of your losses as the price you are willing to pay for a chance on a Jackpot that's part of your entertainment budget.  If you consider yourself of modest means, limit your betting to 1/2 hour's pay per week.  If you're doing better, double that.  Play the Jackpot games.  If you have the time and like juggling numbers, pick your own.  Then, if you remember that 1/2 of your ticket costs are going to good causes in your state, you can relax, and who knows, you may wake up some day a $Millionaire!

    Another trick I've learned to get more fun out of playing the lottery is to remember that the longer you wait to check your tickets, the longer you have to dream.  Smile
