I have thought about it very much and i will play lottery numbers maybe- twice a week;  I play the lotto 649, and keno, so I want to keep the lottery days to a minimum!

Only twice a week is good. I play MM twice a week and PB twice a week.

WAIT, does that still count as only twice a week??

Ronnie that is funny what you said about twice a week!   I look at the jackpots every week, and think if I don't at least try to get a ticket, i might miss out on a prize to lift some financial burdens, so if I have the money, I want in one one of the draws!!

My calculations tell me that for \$10. you could be in ALL the MM draws for the next 5 weeks. And an additional \$20. would put you in ALL the PB drawings for the next 5 weeks.

It sure does, even if the jackpot is small it counts.

Hi Ronnie316, good to see you in the Lounge.

10 draws at a time.

Or did you mean 10 games e.g. game A-E on 2 bet slips?

Just wondering... if you really mean 10 draws in advance and you win on the 1st or 2nd draw I believe you would have to wait for the other draws to play out before you can collect your winning.

Maybe this could be a reason that some jackpot winners take so long to come forward and claim their prizes..

Excellent point Empress-N, and thank you for welcoming me into the Lounge. I find it a fun and relaxing atmosphere even though we are gathering on the basis of being losers.

I do get a 10 draw ticket and wait til the ticket expires before checking it and buying new ones and I have never had the dilemma of needing to cash in a big winner.

Oh, business is very good LottoGuyBC. I cant speak of others and say "you are a loser"

But I can speak for myself and say that losing is at an all time crescendo.

Excellent savagegoose, ahhh the virtues of losing. I admire your ability to stand in the fire and take the heat. When you get that big win people will say,,.,., "you got lucky"

Thank you Elizabeth03, I feel good about playing a couple of lines for 10 draws. It keeps me in the game without violating Thrifty's rule of NOT spending extra money.

Hey LottoGuyBC, grab a stool and sit a while, celebrate the wins and rant on the loss.

It proves true that when the going is good, the good get going....lol
