Let's say that you have a designated amount to use for the lottery. You're down to the last $2 cash in lottery money that you have.

You need want to turn it into more. Not necessarily a big jackpot, but even just a little more to keep playing and keep going.

What would you do with it?

 

(Sort of hypothetical, but the idea for the question was inspired by wanting to pare down my lottery budget too.)

      I will use it for PAIRS, FRONT/BACK. Of course you have to time your bet and be patient. They have the greatest odds as you choose only from 0-9.

        I would use the $2 to purchase a toy gun, then hold up my local branch of Bank Of America this afternoon for $50k.

        I would then wheel the $50k into tonight's Powerball drawing, netting me $90 million before taxes.

        I would then donate $1 million to my local police department, in exchange for dropping all charges for armed robbery, and live happily ever after.

            It don't much matter, scared money never wins and even nervous money can put the kibosh on the whole dang shootin' match.

            Leastways most of the time.

            Might as well keep the money.

            The reason poor people don't win much when they play is cuz they're scared of losin'.

            Them Investment Bankers and other rich guys you see winnin' all the time? They ain't worried about losin' at all.

            And all those unclaimed winning tickets?

            That just shows how often detached, unconcerned people win cuz they're so uninvolved, they don't even remember to check their dadgum ticket.

            In my humble opinion, natcherly.

                Well it was designated for the lottery.....go ahead and buy your ticket (pb) or tickets (mm) maybe you'll win....but it's not like your spending the mortgage payment....or even gas money for that matter...

                      With all the new gun restrictions, it's even difficult to find a decent toy gun anywhere.

                      I'm thinking just a short note with instructions for the teller to place the 50k into my sandwich bag, while wearing a menacing looking mask.

                        Pick 3, Straight Box with the last three numbers of the serial numbers on the bills.

                        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 would put it on Texas's new game All or Nothing. Kinda like a mini keno game, pretty good over all odds.
