    Goherd you have been doing insane lately, on a run that probably rivals most anything that

    has been posted here before! Seems like you have to have about $4000 + in winners this month.

     

    Out of curiosity, how much have you spent in tickets to get those winners? In other words, how

    much of these great winnings lately are profit for you?

      None!  I posted a page or so back how this is all mostly an exchange.  I lose as much as I win because I play everyday.  I have cut back on how much I spend daily but until I win at least $10,000 - $20,000 in one shot I will not break even.  That is cumulative over the past 3-4 years of playing seriously.  I have only in the past 2 years had consistent $500 and $1000 wins.  Also my problem is I play mostly $20 and $30 tickets which you know if you get a bad run of those you can lose $400 - $500 easily.  I have started playing $5 games as to not lose so fast.  I can win $20 - $50 on those then trade up if I want.  I believe I would not do as well if I didn't play at so many stores.  I play at least in 10 stores so my wins are split amongst them.  I think you will be hard pressed to find anyone on these boards that is ahead.

          Nice! I like that only a symbol means you win, but these tickets have bad odds other than the $20.

              Nice win Speedy!  I like the Caesars ticket even though I hit very random and mostly $30 I still like it.  I am still motivated by it since no one has claimed a top prize.  I am still trying to figure things out.  I need to get a lottery budget or only play once a week.  I have been chasing a lot lately and getting my tail handed to me.  I did get this earlier this week:

              I only bought one.  Nice win for a $5 ticket.  Of course I ended up blowing it later on in the day.  I was lucky enough to snag the below today.  I bought 2.  The first was a dud and the second was:

              This is still by far my favorite game however I play it WAY too much.  Buying 3 - 5 of these and have them be losers sucks.  i am still looking for my $5,000+ hit which is motivating me to lose my money. :( 

              So how do you guys play?  Are you chasers or budgeters?  I am a chasers however I seldom win $500+ chasing.  They are mostly within 1-3 tickets.  I can only remember hitting 1 or 2 $500+ wins chasing.  I know this yet I chase!  Makes no sense!

                So I did exactly what I said I would not do today. I was not going to buy any scratch offs. Well glad I did because I am done with GA lottery. I  ended up going through an entire book of Cash Spectacular today. There were 2 $50 winners in the entire pack. What a rip off. I called and asked if there was a minimum return one could expect from buying a book and I was told we do not have that informatIon. What? To make matters worse the 2 winners came on tickets 005 and 009. I  thought I was disgusted before, I truly am now. I  am not chasing anymore. I hope my ignorance helps you guys!

                  I am definitely a budget type of guy or I at least try to be. Back when I was up by a lot, I chased a couple times and it only worked one time. Bought like 4 of the $10 Maximum Fortune's and snagged a $500 winner that I still have as a souvenir (they let me keep it after I cashed it). I chased a few times on $5 tickets and it never worked out. 

                  I see the chasers all the time, and it never seems to work for them. I want to go up to them sometimes and say "Just buy 2-4 tickets and leave, its not worth it". I have chasers to thank for my $1K win last year on the $10 Million Cash Spectacular. Dude went through at least $1K, so like 4-6 books probably, and a day or two later I find that huge winner in that machine.

                   

                  I haven't played in almost a week and I feel great. I don't have any urge to play right now. I do want to play a $20 or $30 ticket sometime early June though. After my two failed attempts of $20 tickets, I think I should try a $30 ticket again. Its been a very long time, I don't even remember the last time I played a $30 ticket. Has to have been since August-October of last year. 

                   

                  Good luck to everyone that does decide to play.

                    Ouch sorry goherd. I can't believe theres no minimum return on books. 

                    Next time you even think about chasing just tell yourself "Is this really worth it?". Think about what you need your $ for, and then walk away. Every time I think about buying tickets after I lose I just tell myself that, and then I feel better and walk away. This is especially easier after you have chased a couple times, so you know first hand how it ends up. 

                    Hope what I said can help you out goherd.

                        I played a $20 Caesars #010 yesterday and just won back ticket. I'll probably play again tomorrow and cash that ticket in for either 2 $10s or another $20. Good luck to those still playing.

                          I was in Georgia a few days ago and I lost $400 in one day playing. Bought at least 3-4 of each $20 and $30 ticket they had on offer. Highest hit was $60 or $70 or something weird like that. I remember thinking is this the "new" $100.....

                          Sadly GA seems to have gone downhill the same way Florida has, and I used to really like playing in GA with their good odds. I checked the website and the odds have progressively gotten worse and worse each year.

                          2014 Highest Winner: $500

                            Yeah James and you can tell how sad it is by this board. You are right that the  $50 and $60 wins have replaced the $100 wins. The $100 has replaced the $500. I have lost $400 in A day more than once. It is like if you get $100 win you better call it a day. I have realized it is not worth it anymore. By the time you do win you have spent double of what you won which fuels you to keep playing and next thing you know you have given that win back and the cycle continues!

                              I have only been playing about 2 years and I have noticed the odds getting worse and worse since then even. GA loves to put out $10 tickets that have great odds to win $100, but those tickets are so bad. I stick to the older $10 tickets still out and I have much better luck on them. I win $50 way more often than I win $100. I'd say I have only won $100 5 times, but I have won $50 like 10-20 times. 

                              I played a $20 Fast Bucks #009 and lost. Played $20 in tickets yesterday, 1 $5 Giant Jumbo Bucks #034, 1 $2 Money Multiplier (60 something I forget), 1 $2 Monopoly (60 something too), and 1 $1 Hot Cash #040 and 1 $10 50X The Money #015. 

                              Only ticket that won was the $10 50X The Money and I got 1 number match for $20. The code was TVF though, so I was confused. 

                              Between both days combined thats $40 in and $20 out. Thats not too bad, but I'd prefer to profit. 

                               

                              I tried out Keno for the first time yesterday. I did 1 $1 4 spot QP and I picked my numbers on a 7 spot for a $1. My 7 spot won, matched 4 numbers and no bullseye, so got $3. I'll try that 7 spot one again sometime.
