    Skipping the daily games is really of little consequence should your luck swing in your favor while you've benched yourself. I mean, what are we talkin', 500 bucks? 1000 bucks? 10,000 bucks?

    Skipping the Jackpot games, however, is a horse of a different feather. Here we're talkin' life-altering sums.

    Luck doesn't schedule it's visits based on whether you have a lottery ticket or not. It may manifest itself in some other area of your life. Maybe it'll keep you from getting run over by that garbage truck. Maybe it was that day that everything just seemed to go right and you felt like you could do no wrong. Maybe it'll come in the form of that person who finally shows up to buy that house that you've had on the market for two years.

    But one thing is for sure. It will not let you win that starting Jackpot of 15 or 40 Million dollars that you sat out because you thought it was too small. And it will not let you win any Jackpot whatsoever if you don't have a ticket in your hand because you were taking a break from the lottery.

    Luck is like the Fickle Finger of Fate and we never know when it's going to point at us, though we know it doesn't happen often.

    So my advice to Jackpot Players would be no, never take a break from the Jackpot Games.

    Always keep your foot in the door.

    And all it takes is one ticket.

                    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.

                    Sounds like you should know Artsey Fartsey.......

                    Ever think about replacing that broken down chair you sit in for 17 hours a day?

                      I do think about the lottery a lot.

                      Revamping and updating charts, trying new things, trying to make it better and easier.

                      I rarely take a day off, but I need one.  You need to time your days off too I think, otherwise it could be a very costly day off.

                      But when I do take a day off, I usually go down to Belmont, and put some money on the poniesScared, or travel up to Empire City and play the slots like a geriatric on steriods.Scared

                      Or I will take a nice sunday off and go to church and play no hold barred bingo.Jester Laugh

                            lol  He is back (or it is his only buddy on LP) and as wacko as ever.   What a nonsensical comment. From what I recall, my office chair was around $650 and it is far from broken and I never worked a 17 hour day.  Your resentment against the "establishment" is showing again.

                            Get some discipline boy and make something of yourself! The time is nigh.

                             

                            As the time draws nigh, glooming, a cloud,

                            A dread beyond, of I know not what, darkens me.

                            I shall go forth,  I shall traverse The States awhile--but I cannot tell whither or how long;   

                            Perhaps soon, some day or night while I am singing, my voice will suddenly cease.

                            O book, O chants! must all then amount to but this?   

                            Must we barely arrive at this beginning of us?...

                            And yet it is enough, O soul!   

                            O soul! we have positively appear'd--that is enough.
