Did someone introduce you to the game?

      About 2 or 3 years ago. It was a self service machine in a grocery store that got me started.

                Texas didn't have a lottery until 1992. Back around 1980, before Virginia had a lotttery, I knew a woman who played the Maryland Pick 3. She was the one who convinced me to buy my first tickets. Yes, her name was Eve, as in Eve-L. Red Devil

                My greatest accomplishment is teaching cats about Vienna Sausage. When I need a friend, all I need do is walk outside, pop open a can, and every little critter in the neighborhood drops by to say "Hi!"

                  "Did someone introduce you to the game?"

                  Yep. My Grandpa. It was 2010, and my Grandpa loved talking numbers to me so much (still does), and I picked up the same hobby.

                  Started to play in my senior year (High School) oftenly, up until now. 

                  "Would you say all things being equal-you gain a sense of satisfaction whether you win or lose?"

                  Yeah, I'd say so, in my opinion. It's an exhilarating experience visualizing winning the jackpot prize, or the great feel of happiness when winning a pick 3 or pick 4 box hit.

                  I'm satisfied when I lose too because usually I'm 3/4 on pick 4, or 2/3 in pick 3. Also, I gain a great satisfaction knowing that my methods are working most of the time, and I'm improving my game.

                  Great quote. I love it. Gives me a pride of "mind your buisness you dirt bag", lol.

                    I started in 1996 to play the lotto and go to the casinos here in oregon.  Just megabucks and powerball then in 2010 I added mega millions.  But now I only play mega millions and powerball every month and stopped going to the casino.  I found that playing the lotto every month is a lot cheaper then going to the casino.  I have more money to do things with if I just stick to the multi-state games and forget about my state lotto even though it is big right now for an oregon jackpot.-weshar75

                      Was'nt sure until i found a crumpled up old ticket. Started sometime in 2008, but only played a few times a year until 2012, then started playing more often.
