Are most people playing the lottery for the long haul?

      I Agree!

       

      Yes, for the long haul. If I don't ever win the big one, at least I found this place, where dreams are smiled upon.

        I've been playing since the lottery started in Louisiana in 1991 and will probably keep playing. I also run a lottery pool in my office. Never won big, with my best win ever being $400, but I keep trying. When Louisiana started Lotto, I won $50 on the 4th drawing. It's something to do for fun.

          Most? difficult to say.It depends on whether one loses interest in never winning anything worth talking about, l think.The other thing to consider is having a constant revenue stream- if no money is coming in, none goes out.

          Its not called a gamble for nothing.

            I play cuz it's a fun hobby/pastime which has as a bonus, however remote, the possibility of being as fabulously wealthy as George Soros or the Kennedy's or John Kerry or Michael Moore or Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi or Al Gore or any of those super rich people like that.

            Yep...  but I would prefer one big short haul... 1% club?  Wonder what that's like?

              I like the feeling that I could win a lot of money by just spendin very little money. Besides I don't smoke cigarettes so I gotta spend that money elsewhere, no? Naughty
