Do Not Play The Lottery To Have Zero Losses.

"The best way to cut your losses is to buy the least amount of tickets possible. You buy zero tickets, you get zero losses. Buy one ticket, and you only lose $1." Unknown Author.

Adventure upon all the tickets in the lottery, and you lose for certain; and the greater the number of your tickets the nearer your approach to this certainty. By Adam Smith.

    I don't get this thread. You say

    Why Buying 1 Mega Millions And 1 Powerball Lottery Ticket Is Enough?

    and then include an image of MM ticket with 5 lines on it What? And as if that is not enough third line in the ticket is the line that hit the jp and not the first one.

    That money's gone fo ever

            I DO NOT PLAY THE LOTTERY.

            I DID NOT PLAY THE LOTTERY TODAY.

            HOW TO WIN THE LOTTERY BY NOT PLAYING=SAVE YOUR MONEY TO PLAY THE LOTTERY SOMEDAY.



            OUR REGULAR LOTTERY PROGRAMMING.

            1) Playing the lottery more often for less tickets= Buying 1 lottery ticket.

            2) Playing the lottery less often for more tickets= Buying multiple lottery tickets.

            3) Playing the lottery less often for less tickets= Buying 1 lottery ticket monthly or yearly.

            4) Playing the lottery more often for more tickets= Spending more money= Gambling addiction.

            I SET A LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT TO MINIMIZE MY LOSSES.

            A lottery stop loss limit is very important to be a successful lottery player over the long term.

                    Have a couple of questions.

                    Is it better to purchase one PB ticket for the next ten drawings or ten tickets in the next drawing?

                    And do you think it's more likely the PB jackpot will be won on Wednesday because many of the jackpot hunters jumped in?

                      I think if you can afford 5 to 10 tickets for the next drawing, go for it.

                          I buy a week's worth of drawings for the Texas Lottery, MM and PB.  Since the PB is on up there, I thought I'd go ahead and splurge on an extra number/line, bringing the total of my PB ticket up to $12.  When the clerk handed me the tickets, I saw an extra one f/ PB - Texas has a promotion for a free ticket if you spend ten bucks on the game.

                              Virginia does that too on occasion, Mike, and it's a nice gesture and bonus.

                              Tennessee would never consider doing anything like that; too innovative, too outside the box, too much of a radical departure from the tedious monotony, boredom and malaise of the Tennessee Lottery.

                              Or as the Dragon Lady would cordially explain: "Just buy some more scratchers and shut the hell up!"
