Did someone introduce you to the game?
Would you say all things being equal-you gain a sense of satisfaction whether you win or lose?

Noise-Gate I am Pleased to meet you,  I believe all the ones who have been here for

at least 3 years or more,  have heard me say this before... but let me tell you, I Love to talk about them....LOL ...My mother,  and Grandmother where digit Lovers!!!

They thought me to love the digits!!  They would say "respect the digits, and they will reward you"

Another saying they would say to me  was "scared money should stay in the bank" 

 LOL "Scared dollars wont make you a Penny"      "Play Like you don't need the money"

They would sit with numbers for hours they were good!! they would teach me,  and That's how I

got hooked on the Digits!!!

forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

Now, does it count??

    Well, when I turned 16 in the UK you can legally play the lottery. So as most people do I bought 1 ticket just because I could and lost, forgot about it then when I turned 18 I started playing the EuroMillions when the JP's are big, then now I just do the same only play when they are big. Obviously 1M would do me fine to set up a business or something, but with the odds I can't play every time so I just stick to big ones.

    2016 Won/Lost

    EuroMillions / Spent: £22 / Won £0 / Total -£22

    UK Lotto / Spent: £4 / Won: £0 / Total: -£4

    2016 Total: -£24

    Jan: -£22 Feb: £0 ~ Mar: £0 ~ April: £0 ~ May: £0 ~ June: £0 ~ July: £2

     

    EuroMillions = £2 Line / Played: x11 [old price] 

    EuroMillions = £2.50 Line / Played: x0

    UK Lotto = £2 Line / Played x2

      Started back in 72, they only had scratchers then, so it was only an occasional ticket here and there.

      Been playing ever since, except when living in non lottery states.

          The only thing that stands out in memory is that the paper dimensions were smaller,

          and there were less games to chose.

            I started in 1989 or 1990 (not for sure which).

             

            I wish I knew then what I know now!  Many more small wins now ... still looking for the JP!

                    Nobody introduced me to the lottery but when I found out Missouri had one my friends and I would have to go to the Missouri's State Line coz in 1986 Kansas didn't hav a lottery. I remember my first win $70 from a Missouri Baseball scratch-off. Then 1988 Kansas put in a lottery. So now I play in Kansas. have won  several times in Kansas. Biggest win $100 2x from 2by2

                      Prior to legalized state lotteries played 'the number' with a 'bookkeeper'.

                      Government lotteries, in this lifetime Germany 1970.

                      In a previous life, played the "Cleopatra Daily 3" a long long time ago.

                      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.
