This one is very good, too. Although my playground gives me more room to run around, I still spend $375-$450 on each draw. I'm actually afraid of not spending it because then, I compromise the consistency of my whole approach. I have yet to not at least recover my cost on a single draw...even when I don't make money. Recovery, to me, is the single most important factor when playing. If you don't fully recover your costs, at some point, then you're really just losing all the time.

The state run lotteries are masters of ensuring that players remain in the red with the odds (payouts) they extend to the players. The still have some of my money, but that's okay.

 

L.L.

Really LL? How can they still have some of your money,

The still have some of my money, but that's okay.

If you cover your cost on every single draw??

I have yet to not at least recover my cost on a single draw

Just wondering??

    They still have the monies that I couldn't win back when I was playing the state. Due to the odds, $250 on a str8 play, my win/loss ratio was in the red because I couldn't play enough numbers to see any real profit, or, consistency. Back then, I didn't quite understand the pre-tests deal, and, it was hell trying to run around to different stores just to get all my tickets played...very tedious. I didn't know anything near what I know now in terms of approach, and, I learned of better resources to implement what I did know and cause me to win more frequently. I'm pretty sure I've more than recovered the losses, per se, just through a different venue. Texas can have that money.

    Now, I have the ability to ensure recovery of my costs, even when I over spend, and can only break even when I play. It took a long time for me to discover "how" to spend my money wisely and give myself the opportunity, FIRST, to recover my money. I treat this game like a business, Ronnie, and you and I both know that you must recover expenses before you can actually make money and generate profit. How I play my numbers isn't possible with a state run lottery at all. But, the states don't care about the players...only about how much money it can pull in. I'm not raising all the hell in the lotto world, and, neither am I the holy grail of Pick 3 players, but I'm not losing like I was...and I actually make money. I'm happy.Wink

                          If you win the PB jackpot, you didn't lose your $2.

                            And your ROI would have been 640,000,000 %.
