    Playing yes, thinking no. If I don't see anything that looks good, or there is too many choices to make, I don't play.  Be

    decisive, don't guess.

      Yes, it's refreshing to take a couple days off and come back recharged.

      Remember to flip 6's 9's, mirror front and end #'s, and do front/back3 for a hit!

        My personal opinion, and in all honesty, a smart player doesn't play these games daily anyway. Everything has its' season and this is no different...it has its' best time for playing it and being successful. You can overdue anything...especially lottery games.

         

        L.L.

        Small games, frequent wins, and regular payouts 'cause.....

            I haven't played in 2 months.  I was on a bad losing streak and was tired of both losing and wasting my money.  I have thought about playing recently but right now there aren't any scratch games I am interested and PB and Cash 5 JP's aren't that high.  I dont really have an interest in MM anymore.

            To God be the glory... 

            When you're winning you're being blessed by Him!

                  Im always playing PB but almost never thinking about it. Staying away from posting on Lp has a lot to do with keeping my priorities in order.

                    Well good to hear you are getting some "help" Ronnie. Going from posting every 2 seconds, to ranting about Gloria, to attacking everyone, you must now be on some heavy duty meds.

                        I'm a clerk so I face it 5 days a week.  Seeing players play 400.00 a month with 1 or 2 free tickets in the end can curb your enthusiasm.  It's real life Bruce Almighty if you visit a prayer request website.

                          Last year I played just about every day. This year I've scaled way back and only play once a week, depending on the games. When jackpots reset sometimes I'll go a month without playing.

                          If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
                          If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

                            I play every jackpot game, Tx 2 Step, Lotto, PB, and MM. I did skip MM a couple weeks ago. But other than that I always have at least on tic. I can understand only playing when jackpots are high, but the problem with that is you don't get to choose if or when you might win. So even if Tx 2 Step is only $200,000, I play it, because if I win, that's get out of debt money. That alone is worth a buck.

                              Will always play MM/PB, but i'm taking a little break from the scratchoff Ouija boards due to Xmas.
