    Well, Thrifty, there is no stop loss limit with a game this large, okay. Until a person wins enough to recover monies previously spent, it continues to be a loss no matter if only $2. I think the problem is this: Some players will either spend a certain amount of money, or, see where someone else spent a certain amount of money and hit 3-4 numbers. They then figure that, "If I spent that much money, then I can spend more and hit more numbers...maybe even win!!!!"

    So, they go about this plan like millions of other have, and they lose a lot of money in one shot. Then they become very upset with the lottery because they just know they should've hit 4-5 numbers, or, won. Next, the lottery is rigged and the state is cheating because they spent $300 and didn't even hit (3) numbers like they did with $20!! Then, they begin a downhill spiral with telling everyone that the lottery is a ripoff...etc etc etc.

    I think I've pretty much hit it on the head here. Yes Nod

     

    L.L.

    I will play the lottery someday.

          MB #3 is at the top of my list of the 20 MBs I will play Tuesday. Eleven draws has occurred since its last hit and repeats of MB after two and eleven draws are top on my list, they both has happened 20 times.

          Also, MBs seldom follow another MB more than once and MB #3 has never followed MB #34 in the last 749 drawings since the last matrix change.

            I played the 43 MB five times and it came out. I did not match any of the five numbers though. I never tried it again.

                I agree with your assessment RJ, and will also be using the MB #3 for the next few drawings.

                    I wonder if Todd plays the lottery. I guess that he buys multiple lines whenever he plays.We had a heated argument about buying multiple lines.

                    I stated that buying more tickets does not increase your odds of winning. Todd tried to argue his points against me and coin toss.It was not fun at all.

                      Debate or argument?  Why would anyone besides a spouse ever argue with some one about how they played the lottery?  I could see it if it affected their personal life but beyond that, it's nobody else's business.

                          There use to be several websites that did that for a fee.  One I remember named "Vault" advertised at LP for a few weeks.  They all seem to have gone out of business or changed their business model such that you never see or hear of them any more.  I wonder what happened to them.

                            In THRIFTY'S defense, an argument might have ensued as a result of THRIFTY'S extreme enthusiasm, and compelling logic about buying multiple lines.

                            Even the sturdiest players, Todd included,  may have taken personal offense to such a compelling and bold concept.     Cussing Face

                             

                            Everyone has their breaking point. Perhaps debate was no longer an option at this critical juncture. No Nod
