    If you consider $2 a win then two drawings, if you're talking about $1000+ then two years.

        You hit for $1000 every two years? wow, clearly there is something that I am not doing right No Nod

        To answer the op, I think I average two months to hit the bottom prizes. I don't play the scratch off tickets which I'm informed that have a higher payout

        That money's gone fo ever

          It all depends on the game, how many #'s you play, and how many states you're playing in. Obviously, if you are playing

          50 #'s in all states, you will have more wins more often than if you only play your home state using 10 - 20 #'s. Unless you

          have a really good system which enables you to do that. But then again, how many of the 50 in all predictors are actually

          playing that for real instead of just on paper? Even at .25c per # online it's an expensive proposition.

          "You can observe a lot just by watching." Yogi Berra, Hall of Fame baseball player.

          The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.

          Don't just think outside the box, crush it.

            For P3,since january this year....sad but true

            Usual investments have been no more than $2 a day other than pay weeks where I may actually indulge in 4 -5 dollars for a given draw

                I think about 2-3 weeks. I have noticed now that I am concentrating 90% of my number picking time more on games like decades of dollars and win for life and hot lotto (while there is still a big JP), vs the real biggies,  PB and MM, my PB and MM success has been terrible.  I got 3 of 6 hot lotto last week  and 3 of 6 of win for life last night (a big $2  win I think). I usually get the hot lotto ball # about every 3rd time.

                  I usually play 10-20 lines 3-4 times a week and buy $3000+ worth of tickets yearly.  I matched 5of6 in the Ohio Classic Lotto in February for $1500 and I checked yesterday and I'm down to only $105 ahead for the year.  Unless I get a big win soon I'll be in the hole next month.  I usually end up $1500 in the hole every year in spite of my wins.

                  I could win more if I spent more but I would still end up in the hole for the year if I didn't win a jackpot.

                    That last line of yours goes both ways RJOH- one could spend more and still lose more.Consider people who spent millions on the last " One Winner PB" jackpot. Many ended up crying a river.

                          Probably about 1-2 weeks but that includes small prizes.
