    is anyone gaining or making a steady income from playing the lottery.

    Yes. Every person who has won a lotery prize and invested it is now making a steady income from playing the lottery. There are literally thousands of people who  have enough income that they've retired.

      Funny piece of info, story in the news yesterday the I R S is looking at social media for claims of big winnings, earnings, etc. to see if they can match the claims to tax returns.  Think about what you put out there.

        Yes, and the people who dont even play the lottery tell else that they cant win.

            If they are doing it legally then they are paying taxes on it.  Legal or not, they aren't likely to disclose it publicly.

              I Agree! If they smart enough to win the lottery, they smart enough to keep they mouth shut.

                  Some people have lottery playing skills and some people dont. No Nod

                  How do you describe your lottery playing skills on your resume?

                        People playing lotteries as a job are self employed and don't need a resume.  Who would hire them for that?

                          "I assume a few people are."

                          Given the random nature of the games and the fact that hundreds of millions of people play around the world, this is a reasonable conjecture.

                          "I think its good to be reminded of this, because it serves as inspiration that it can be done..."

                          However, alluding to the fallacy that it "can be done" is bogus.  You don't "do it."  It just happens.

                          I see you're continuing to do your part to keep hope alive that wins can be engineered.

                          Hello jimmy4164,

                          I appreciate your honest comments, and I'll respond because I want to plant a seed, and the seed is Doubt.

                          You mentioned that my sentiments are conjecture and bogus...There's a big wide world out there and yet you speak with so much certainty. Are you super sure of that which you speak? Really. Only because you haven't seen it all, none of us have, and yet you are so sure. I know, I know, the nature of randomness and such allows you to feel sure. I shared with you in JosephusMinimus' thread in the Mathematics Forum that the way we look at the "random" nature of the lottery games is valid in one aspect, but in the main it may be quite incomplete.

                          In that thread, I talked at length about how in each generation our ability to interpret our world  improves because we have newer tools of perception. Our technology, for example, gets more refined as time marches on and so does our ability to define what we see.  The telescope, microscope, calculus, and millions of other examples in all fields of learning attest to the fact , and yet you are so sure that the fictional book-on-the-lottery-games-and-how-they-can-be-won-and-a-steady-income-made has already been written and randomness is the theme. Can you accept that maybe there's something you don't know about it? Remember there's much you haven't seen, and so have no knowledge of. Don't be alarmed that because you don't know things about the lottery says something about the capacity of your intellect. It doesn't. You just simply don't know, and thats okay. But be careful. Author Wayne Dyer once said that "the highest form of ignorance is to reject something you don't know anything about". Don't be that person Jimmy. Be well...

                          May your numbers be true this day,

                          Our 2nd class in Pick 3 Lore was Space-Timing The Next Draw and we found the Lottery LoreKeeper, Tatiana, staring through her telescope, while we covertly giggled about what does Planet X have to do with what my next draw is? The sleuthy sage quietly intoned, "It is known that when the light(information) from such a distant object reaches our eyes, we are seeing the object as it was in the past & not as it appears Now in the present. Isn't this true for all things, especially numbers, that were drawn years, months, weeks or even just a day in the past? To accurately find the next draw, use the Law of Now(Tatiana's Pillar)". We never giggled again.
