Buddios..here we go. Honestly.
Buy $2 tickets only. If you have $5 to spare per week, get them early and get then on Friday and keep
to your budget. FRIDAYS, $5.00
Get 2 from the same slot and one $1 Frenzy ticket.
Don't even attempt the $20 tickets and you should stay away from the $10's too.
Most $5's suck.
IF you are just starting out, the lure of winning $100 on a $5 or $10 ticket is going to be too much. It doesn't happen
as much as it should and if you have $50, that's 5 $10 tickets. BIG DEAL. That same $50 will buy you 2 $20's BIG DEAL.
Not sure of your age or your financial status but there is a college student tag - they are on aid, they are poor, they are
getting money from dad and mom, they blow their aid, they fail their courses and they have too much fun.
Mix lottery buying in there and it's a recipe for DISASTER.
Lottery tickets are not the instant answer they want you to think they are..and they aren't fun most times. I've been
playing so long, winning $100 is nothing...when I see $500 it's nice but almost as much nothing as the $100.
I have the money to play, no problem there it's just the instant win possibility and the fun of scratching can get
catchy...addictive. They aren't fun I said but still fun at the same time. It's a hobby for some, a trap for others and
a curse for still others. You have to have the money to back you up.
I saw a lady once almost have a heart attack over winning $60 on a $1 ticket. I could tell she didn't play much.
IF you can limit yourself to a MINIMAL amount...ie the $5 per week...2 $2's and 1 $1....then you are doing yourself a
favor in the area of your life you're at right now. School is WAY more important, get your books, get your courses, get
your head in the right place. Keep it REAL - I've seen LOTS of people feed machines HUNDREDS of dollars chasing a win
only to be frustrated by loser after loser. I can't laugh out loud at them, I won't pity them (they do it to themselves) BUT
I sure and heck can take a lesson from them: DON'T DO WHAT THEY DO.
I've had LOTS of luck buying one ticket and done from multiple places - go in, put a $20 in make one selection and GO.
I found a $5k like that. BAM. I don't know what kind of player you'd be maybe the luckiest in the state of PA..but probably
not. I'm not lucky every time...no way. I do find a lot of winners though..but I don't go to college and I know how to play
these things. CONTROL is key. SET YOUR LIMIT AND KEEP IT....LEAVE WHEN YOU DON'T WIN....AND DON'T GET CAUGHT UP
IN THE BELLS AND WHISTLES OF PA LOTTERY TELLING YOU 4 TOP PRIZES OF $1M dollars...sure it would be nice but why
waste money when the 4 tickets are in a release of 6 - 7 million? Is it in your area? Who knows...I'd rather be ahead a few
hundred than chase the big one just because they say IT COULD BE 'ME'.
Winning $100 on a $1 or $2 ticket is WAY BETTER than winning $20 or nothing on a $20.
STICK with the $2's...I've won $100's, $400, $200's, $50's, $20's and loads of little prizes on $2's....the $2 FRENZY's are
another okay one..if you get a burst, you got a hundred. MANY OF THEM ARE BLANKS, FREE TICKETS AND $2 dollars.
Keep it simple, if you win be satisfied with that win...movin on up might be a mistake for you at this point. Play SMART.
Play small. Don't dump all your winnings into the lottery again.
I've made some assumptions here...but so what?...if they're wrong then okay...if I'm right, do what I said....hey, if you win
$100 on a $2 put it in your pocket....save it for a date, a movie, a dinner, some fun. Keep the lottery in perspective and
you'll be happier for it.
Good luck to you and I hope you don't win enough to get stupid about it. If you win big, don't give it back. BEST REVENGE:
either keep winning or keep it in your pocket.
I prefer to keep winning, but hey, # one I've got more experience than you and # two I don't need tips.
