          Playing the lottery can be both entertaining and frustrating.

          Entertaining when you win but frustrating when you miss being a multi-millionaire by one number.

          At least that what I was thinking when I collected my $1500 - $10(processing charge) this morning.

            Wow! Congrats on the win! More money to play to win more money! Dance

             

            I play mostly for entertainment. But I won't fool anyone by saying that is the only reason. I still hold hope that I'll win a big one for financial security. How cool would life be knowing you have $ to pay the bills each month?  I play for $1m and up for that. Then I play smaller pots to get more money to play to win more money. Unfortunately, I'm a bit behind there... lol.

                    was just hoping to win an extra 100 or 2 to get those things I couldn't ordinarily afford.

                        I play Mostly 3 digit, not going to retire on that, but if I put some extra spending dollars in my pocket, I am happy. I started my retirement fund when I was in my 20's.

                        Similar to Sully and I have had a retirement account also since my 20's. However, I am looking to buy that fixer upper apartment in Paris (and rent it out most of the year) and to only work (self employed career) for myself. So I am playing the bigger games.

                          I would be happy with a cool million from powerball.  I see every week almost that someone in this country of ours wins a million so I would like to be the next one from oregon.  I got my ticket for tomorrow in play so I will wait and see.-weshar75

                            lol...no I meant 100-200 dollars .I keep my needs small.

                             Apparently the odds of hitting that in Connecticut are 1:25,000..or at least that's what it seems like

                              99% of the time I play the pick 3. It's the easiest game to win. I don't win all the time, but I'm gonna keep trying to. Like it says under my avatar, my goal is $1,500 a week.
