So I play the colorado lotto and spend $65 dollers on just the state lotto and what I win I put on cash 5. Has any one ever found a good amount to play every time I mean there was powerball winners in new york played 100 dollers every time. They won so maybe there is a good amount or maybe I have though that there are only some computers that are getting winners and some are duds. I spent 65 in one store and I won 9 back went next week after that and to a differant store same amount 65 won 0:(.  Have anyone come up with a certain number that make them fill good or does any one have luck with some odd way that they play I know it's all up to chance. All so I dont play big game like Mega Millions or power ball they are to hard to win.

      Once you decide how much you're willing to lose, it's much easier to decide how much to spend for a win.

        Rose (great name by the by!) - 65$ would be too high for me... lottery money comes out of the entertainment budget for us... 

        everyone pretty much has to determine what their level of pain is in 'contributing toward education funds' within their state.  some only play 8$ or less a week (me included = 8$ normally), some play much more, a few are more dedicated and only play at certain jackpot levels or 1x per month, or pretty much any derivation you can think of. 

        Good luck coming up with what works best for you and your situation!

          I agree with poster above, also dont ever think just because one group won with a certain amount of money , that it is the best amount to play.

          They won doing $100 dollars but there are people out there who do $100 and have never won a substantial amount.
