HOW TO WIN THE LOTTERY BY NOT PLAYINGSAVE YOUR MONEY.

 

" As with any lottery, the government runs it as a revenue source. They can do this because if they sell enough lottery tickets, they come out ahead. The reverse is true for you. If you purchase enough lottery tickets in each drawing, you will always come out behind. In other words, the lottery is a game that can only be won in the short run."

 

"If you have to purchase tickets yourself, buy one per drawing. This ticket has as much chance of winning as any other ticket. Plus, because the lottery is a game you can only win in the short term, this extends the short term for as long as possible."

 

LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT= 1 LOTTERY TICKET PER DRAWING WHENEVER I PLAY.

    THRIFTY,

    I agree with you about buying one ticket, but there's a saying in gambline circles, "Everyone bets the same amount", not meaning a monetary amount, but whatever amount it takes to give them a thrill.

    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.

      I never saw it that way, but you are correct we humans perceive risk at different levels.

        Since I pretty much just started playing a few months ago is there a history of people winning by buying TONS of tickets versus somebody who only buys one? Like are most jackpots won because somebody bought 1 ticket or are more winners because they were able to spend like hundreds and hundreds of dollars?

          If it is your time to win, you will win whether you buy 1 lottery ticket or 100 lottery tickets. You have to play to win.

            The last winner of the Mega Millions Jackpot spent $26 on quick picks and he won. I say betting a minimum of $5 to $25 is a good bet. Spending hundreds of dollars will produce losers.

              Seems reasonable enough. I kinda had this idea that most people spent like 20+ dollars a draw. I got a couple odd looks when I would just get my 1 or 2 tickets lol.

                LOL! Same here. For yesterday's Powerball, I only bought 2 tickets ($4) and the clerk looked at me like where's the rest of the money (saying to bet more lol) In summary, betting a minimum of $5 or $25 can produce a winner. Stick with that.

                  They did the same thing to me when I played a single line for the $325 millions powerball jackpot.

                    I am thinking that is the way to go. Play 1 or 2 tickets and maybe win lol.

                            I agree with the one ticket per draw, that's a conclusion that I emphasized in my thread from last week "For those who put too much money in the lottery" but your motivations for doing so are based on the wrong foundations. Please, refer to my thread and let me know what you think, I would like to have an intelligent debate with you :-p

                              I read your thread, and I agree that most lottery jackpots are very hard to win. But it is also good to buy 1 lottery ticket to have a chance of winning which is obviously better than having a zero chance of winning.

                              What are my motivations? To have a debate with me, you might want to read most of my posts. But I am open to it anyway. Although others might join too.
