Good question my friend, perhaps Zac could try spending $20-30 a week for the next 6 weeks a post how his experience goes each day, in order to gain insight into lottery play?

I wonder if his perspective would change at all if he won a jackpot of some kind?

After all, the vague nature of his post leaves us with no idea whatsoever what his writing intentions are. So when he says the story will be "a story on state lotteries" does it mean that he is friend? Or is he foe?

i don't believe it so curious and leave Argue

    Hello,

    I am a writer with CNBC working on a story on state lotteries. I'm looking for frequent players who can tell me about the impact the lottery has had on their lives--positive or negative.

    Thanks so much,


    Zac Bissonnette

    Well, so far, I have had more money returned to me than if I had listened to your Cramer guy a few years ago and bought Sponge Tech stock (BTW did Cramer make anything by suggesting to everyone that they buy Sponge Tech?)

    Anyway it took me 21 years of playing 1 or more dollars per drawing before I hit  the 6/## lottery game for 4 of 6 for $100 here (easily a better return than the Sponge Tech Cramer was pushing)

    Yes, I am way behind, if I never win the jackpot it wont be for a lack of trying for 4 decades.

        Hurray!

        I find it entertaining as I like to look at all the ways the numbers could fall. Of course most of the time I am wrong. But I did get the 25 and power of 32 right. But I put 40 instead of 30 on power ball.I limit myself normally though with the state lottery twice a week. But played this last power ball. Even though I really don't like the way they have it set up. I am very happy several people did win it.

        See Ya!

        Win once, win big.

          Tell me about it, I bought one of Cramer's "trick or treat" stocks and got treated to what he called "a buzz saw" the very next day after he recommended it.

            Welcome to LP, I play PB and MM. I don't have much interest in my states local games.

                  Well, RJOh will live longer with his habit.

                  That's debatable. I've known many guys in their late 70's who chain smoke, drink, and walk around like a 20 year old. I don't chain smoke, so It's all good.

                  BTW, it's all in the genes anyways. How many people die early from lung cancer and they've never smoked.

                    And one day he might win a large jackpot. Also, a lot of us enjoy playing the lottery so we do get enjoyment out of it.

                    True, and he may get struck by an asteroid too. 99.999% of people won't win the JP in their lifetime.
