I haven't been able to get the motivation to pick up tickets for each draw so I'm lucky to get one play in a week and on top of that I just haven't been feeling like I'll get anything (haven't even won $1 in about 1 1/2 months). What's some stuff y'all do to get back into the game, or do you just wait until the feeling comes back to you?

I think I'm going to try and get out early tomorrow with generated numbers from the sites tool and see if I can't get some good thoughts by watching some Lottery Changed My Life episodes I have downloaded.

    funny you should mention it, ive been going a little slower lately, and am trying to  cut down bets a fair bit more. I think the new year has me counting  how much i spend and wanting to cut i down.

    maybe its just an after xmas thing. i hear lots of people cut down spending after xmas.

      What you have is called "lottery fatigue" and is common among lottery players who has not won the kind of money they thought they were entitled to win.

              Think positive, if you play long enough you're bound to win something.   Even if it's not a jackpot, dreaming about winning one has got be worth something and you can't do that if you don't buy a ticket.

                    oh yea ahnd as someone mentioned if oyu play reg numbers and they have been bad for  ages and getting a littl hum drum. swap it around, play a game you dont normnally play, and  stop ones you do.  do QP;s for a month isntead of  regualrs. instead of $2 a game, save up and do $8 at end of month or when theres a nic pot.

                     

                    i know routine is hard to break, as i said i stuck playing my regs, and cutting some out was hard im gonna take my advice and next  buy ill go for 2 weeks of QPs...

                    oh wait wasnt i meant to be cutting back lol

                        Maybe you just need to stop playing your regular #'s for awhile. Or get some new regular #'s. Personally I don't have any regulars. Too many times they go months without hitting and you spend all your $$$ on nothing.

                        I expect to win every time I play, of course I don't but if you can't be positive about it why play? Some days I look at my charts and I just don't "feel it" so I take a draw off. Dry spells happen so don't sweat it, besides it gives you a chance to try a different strategy.  Good Luck!!!

                      The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.

                      Don't just think outside the box, crush it.

                            just remember its  $1 and a dream , not $10k and a debt. try not to bet too much.

                            what got me here, is that there is almost 1 lotto draw a day, and i try and have a dollar in each. over the years they have slowly crept the prices up. instead of $1 for 4 games, its now $1.75 etc.   so its $10 a week, if that was all id be ok, but as  various games jackpot i decide to play a little more.

                            i guess i have to really keep the money in my pocket unless there is a jacklpot then start playing the $1 ish bets.

                              This is my 16th year for powerball and megabucks and second year for mega millions.  I have decided to play less and I may not win a jackpot but I will be able to play for all the jackpots this year by buying $1 tickets with multipliers for mega millions and megabucks.  Then $2 with powerplay for powerball all year long and save the rest of my money for a rainy day fund.  Sure I am not going to have high hopes of winning but you never know with lady luck when she comes around to pass out the goodies I might get something good.  Good luck to you!-weshar75
