Two dollar online games are here and more are coming, like Powerball next year.

Do you now or will you play them when they come?

Explain, if you'd like.

              I generally play only 3-ball numbers games. Sometimes, I will play 4-ball numbers games. I am not aware of any numbers games that cost more than $1. Right now, I have no plan to play any game for which the lower-tier prizes are less than 50% of the odds

              Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

              In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                Decades of Dollars is a $2 game in Virginia and some other states I believe.

                You can win $250,000 a year for 30 years and I don't think anybody has ever won the top prize as far as I know.

                      Poll within the poll.

                      How many who said they will not buy a $2 ticket will buy a $2 ticket?

                      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                      Lep

                      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                          Since I assigned up for a platinum membership four years ago(I guess the only one from Kenya)-I have developed alot of passion for lotteries!

                          let alone paying $ 2,I am more than willing to pay $ 200 for a lottery ticket.BUT if it's not a scam-because the world has changed and people can even build companies over the internet these days.

                          Most of us from Africa-do get money the hardway-unlike most of you (especially in the USA)-who make money from the comfort of their chair!-we therefore like to see that every cent is spent wisely!

                          Back to the Topic!

                          In lottery we normally play not to win but to assume that your donating it to charity!

                          And let me ADVICE all of you: NEVER PLAY THE LOTTERY TO WIN-that way you will never WIN!-

                          Relax-and assume that you have donated $ 2 to starvating child in a hospital bed-with that heart you will WIN!

                          GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD  LUCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCK MY BROTHERS & SISTERS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD!.

                              Nairobi-Kenya!

                              i don't make my $ from the comfort of a chair,i mostly do it by getting my hands dirty and often cut.

                              my street is not paved in gold,it's blacktop, put there by guys that work pretty hard.

                              and here we also like to spend every cent wisely,at least the average person.

                              but not our gov't they don't care how they spend.
