Richard Watkins Jr always thought that maybe SOMEDAY he might win BIG. He won $1,000,000 playing the New York lottery Powerball on September 26, 2012.

              YOU HAVE TO BE IN IT TO WIN IT

              "This is a very common slogan used by lotteries and football pools companies alike. What this slogan is saying is you can't dream of winning the lottery or the pools unless you part with your beer tokens. Of course they are right. If you never buy a ticket you can never win. But how many times do you dream of winning? Do you have to win every week to be happy? Of course not. You only have to win once. So you only have to buy one ticket, at some time in the future to be able to legitimately dream of winning a huge jackpot.

              So you might as well get used to the idea that winning the lottery is unlikely. But it's also nice to have a dream, it is good for your mental health. So here is the secret: Buy a ticket. One day. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe not." By Martin, Willett.

              "Someday Thrifty will buy a lottery ticket so he can dream about winning because the odds against winning have no effect on dreams. Even though there is a reality when the ticket is checked, it won't prevent Thrifty from someday buying another ticket and keep on dreaming." By Stack47

                $30 on a powerball ticket that isn't being thrifty at all.  Don't you think you should spread out your money a bit and play less money for more draws thrifty.  Your high rolling us big money!  Shame on you thrifty!  Shame!  Shame on you!  That is all I have to say now go back to your regular programming!-weshar75

                    I think shaming THIFTY into paying less money for more draws is going to backfire.

                    THRIFTY always has a perfect comeback to every objection.

                    Sorry weshar75.......now back to your regular programming.

                      OUR REGULAR LOTTERY PROGRAMMING.

                      1) Playing the lottery more often for less lines= Playing a single line.

                      2) Playing the lottery less often for more lines= Playing multiple lines.

                      3) Playing the lottery less often for less lines= Playing a single line monthly or yearly.

                      4) Playing the lottery more often for more lines= Spending more money= Gambling addiction.

                      SET A LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT TO MINIMIZE OUR LOSSES.

                      A lottery stop loss limit is very important to be a successful lottery player over the long term.

                        Playing the lottery someday is better than playing the lottery everyday.

                        One does not need to buy a ticket every day in order to play the lottery every day.  I buy my tickets once a week, but among those purchases is NY's Take 5, which, as you know, is drawn daily.  It would indeed be odd, bordering on troubling, if someone was to buy tickets every day for games that are not drawn every day, such as Mega Millions and Powerball.

                          However, to quote another line that you post often, you have to be in it to win it.  There's nothing wrong with dreaming, but you can't dream of winning a jackpot for which you have not bought a ticket.  There's also nothing wrong with playing only one line; in fact, many people do exactly that.
