Excellent choice my friend. You may also want to consider rabid refund?

I seriously considered the "rabid" refund, but was concerned with getting rabies.  Bat

          I stopped for over a year once,

          of course it helped that I had moved to a state that did'nt have lottery....yet.

            I say stop for about 10 years and then use the "shotgun approach"

            That sounds thrifty to me !

              How long can you go without playing a penny on any of the games. I think I can last a month. Game on??? Anyone up for it. Anytime you don't play post it here. Did not play today -- is all need to be said. If you break the agreement, you have to start over. I usually play the Mega Million but I will opt out for a month in playing any of the games. If I play, I will be honest and post that I played. That's it... will you last longer than me or 30 days?

               ....personally I have a set amount/budget for gambling do or die.On the rarest of occasion may exceed it on a paid weekend if I like the backtest on something.

              I can't imagine life without a small wager anymore.When I get digusted from not hitting P3 for a loooong time,I counteract and just relocate the budget to a few quick picks for PB or the local cash5.

              Unil the next hobby I obsess over happens,I couldn't imagine not playing anything daily for multiple days.

               

              My lottery intoxication is more with the actual handicapping then the playing believe it or not.

              Even though betting(or should I say allstates predcting) is free at LP,I always look foreward to getting home to see what was drawn.

              I would hate to look at playing the lottery as something I should feel guilty about enough to put it down.It should always be viewed as a hobby you can afford to lose with  lol

              for always sticking up for me.."

                    Went over 15 years when I moved to a state without it.  Which was on purpose to stop the potential addiction, but with maturity comes responsibility.   Which is why I vary rarely spend more that a dollar on tickets now.

                      Its BETTER to play 1040 lines with a strategy, than 1 line per draw for 10 years.

                      Yup!!!

                        I have actually bounced the idea around of taking a year's lottery budget and playing it all on one drawing ... after, of course, developing a number wheel that I know would produce lots of small wins ... and hopefully the big one!!!

                        (My hand would surely be very sore after filling out all the play slips!)

                          I seldom play. I play only about once per month if that.

                          Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                          In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                              I'm really surprise that most feel like they must play. If we continue to play nothing will ever change. Think about it. How do people get anything to change? By going on strike. We should all go on strike for 30 days and demand more winnings with better odds. One person alone can not do it, we need millions to stand up for this.

                              Strikes are not the answer...just ask the good former employees of Hostess! With the lottery, if demand is not sufficient, the next jackpot amount might be the same or just slightly higher like Illinois Lotto typically increases by $250K per rollover but lately has only increased by $150K.  Ditto for Mega Millions. The show will go on. Someone will win. You are just guaranteed to have ZERO chance at winning if you do not play.

                              Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                              The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!
