I play the Take 5 here in New York along with the Wednesday/Saturday lotto. And I  play the daily 3 way numbers or win 4 as the whim hits me.. Then on Mega Millions and Powerball I have a couple of guys who pitch in as a group play. And like you I buy a sctach off on occasions.Sad Cheers

    Hello-+I play the lotto 649, Atlantic 49, lotto max and Atlantic keno, here in Canada- as well as scratch tickets;

     

    I bought an insta pik for Lotto Max last night and won a free ticket.

     

    I'd rather choose my own numbers, but have difficulty with it, so opted for a insta pik last night!

      I play MM and PB and the Texas Lottery but only after they've rolled over a time or two after being won.  I also buy scratch tickets, usually to get up to an even dollar amt. after playing the lotteries.  For example, those three lotteries cost $7 and I'll get a $2 Weekly Grand and then tell the clerk to pick me out a dollar scratcher to get it up to ten bucks.  I don't have much luck on scratch-offs.  I don't have much luck on the lottery drawings, either.

      I met a British woman online and she came over several times to see me.  We'd send ea. other pkgs. and sometimes would put in a scratch ticket or two.  Neither of us won on our gift tickets, but both enjoyed showing the "strange" tickets to people in the shops that sold them.  I was showing my UK tickets to the mgr. of the convenience store close to my house and she got a kick out of them, esp. the "Bangers and Mash".  One of her clerks came up (a young woman who I really didn't like ringing my stuff up b/c she wasn't too bright) and wanted to see what we were looking at and said "Look, this one's a winner....no, only two symbols matched.  You nearly won two dollars, though!"  I took the ticket from her and looked at it, then told her "No, not dollars.  Two pounds." and held out the ticket to show her the £ symbol and started to explain the exchange rate but she jerked the ticket out of my hand and held it flat on her palm, moving it up and down as though weighing it.

      "There's NO WAY that weighs two pounds!" she informed me.   Like I said, not too bright.

            I do MM and PB every drawing, playing my own numbers (1 set)  Sometimes I get the urge to buy a $5 scratcher but that's very rare

                Same play as u Winn500, only play PB if there is a pool at work. Don't want to be the only guy standing when everyone else around me wins. Lol. But again Florida games only.

                  Scratch Tickets, Lucky For Life, MegaMillions, PowerBall, MegaBucks Doubler, Mass Cash, Christmas Millionaire Raffles. I am hoping to strike through all but the last two; Mass Cash and Raffles. I want to focus on games that are easier to win and that have a sizable prize for the year 2014.

                    Thats a real fear isn't it? haha its the only reason I will not say no to a work pool. The fear of being the one left working and having to tell the story to co-workers about how you were not feeling lucky or you never join pools as a matter of principle. Oh yes, they would be laughing at you.

                      Nah, you just sue 'em and say they were supposed to put you in.

                      Then let the lawyers and the judges work out the details, that's their job.

                      Pools are easy money.

                      If they say you didn't sign the contract, you just say the guy took your money and said he didn't have the contract with him but would give you a copy later.

                      Then smile for the cameras after you get your rightful and well-deserved share of the winnings.  Big Grin

                      They don't need all that money anyway, there's plenty enough for everybody. Thumbs Up 

                      They shouldn't be so greedy.

                            Its a quandary that I agonize over everytime the jp rises to the stratosphere because that is when the pool members come out of hibernation. But I suspect I would still end up with good size bread if we ever won and a few leeches came and sucessfully sued us.
