Anyway, playing the lottery to achieve financial freedom is almost a fools endeavor.

 

If you read my entire post I said I want to try my luck; that doesn't mean my life(financial freedom) defends upon winning lottery. And if you win a lottery that won't make you financially free is a news to me. as they say, Stupidity has no limits.

    "Stupidity has no limits." - Well, you can speak for yourself with that. Btw, my statement was in response to someone other than yourself.

    "In order to gain financial freedom and with certain goals in mind, I am willing to take some risk and give my luck a try." - Sure sounds like you're trying to achieve financial freedom with the lottery. But, whether ,or not, your life "defends" on it is another story.

      Hey Guys, 

      In order to gain financial freedom and with certain goals in mind, I am willing to take some risk and give my luck a try. It will be sort of like a pocket money set aside keeping in view this larger objective. With that said, I would like to ask the fine folks which lottery gives you best bang for the buck? 

      In NY they used to have sweet million but it's no longer available. Would you recommend to play regular draw lotto or scratch lotteries?  I don't know which one has better odds. Also the problem with scratch lottery is, you don't know when the top prizes are gone. Do you have better luck with high dollar lotteries such as $20, $30?? Please share your thoughts.

      I play Lotto and Mega Millions in MY.

      I like the website, I can see my winnings, very small so far, which are credited to subscription account.

      You can also use credits when renewing your subscription.

      You can purchase and renew subscriptions online, in MY state.

      We all get a lot out of lotteries!

         So, in other words, you can't dispute the fact that it ,mainly, comes down to relying on luck LOL

        Sometimes it's extremely difficult if not practically impossible to get people to disregard the smoke and mirrors.  Instead, they seem to enjoy the ride down the proverbial Garden Path....... helpless to extricate themselves from being totally deceived by known forces in their midst who would argue that they have come here for the sole purpose of helping people.......str8ca$hhomie

            If you're playing in NY and are looking for accurate information regarding winnings to help you in deciding which games to play, I'd suggest sticking to games that multiple States participate in such as Mega Millions, Powerball, Cash for Life etc. The NY State Lottery has gotten shadier and shadier with their info regarding scratch off games over the past year. Removal of the Winners Atlas so you don't know what areas winners are in and can't see updated winning stores. Infrequent update of the Winners Stories and delays in the update of the Instant Game Report sections can have players purchasing games with few remaining; and in some cases no remaining jackpots.

                Let me clarify few points for you and then leave it. 

                1. It is foolish to think winning lottery will not provide one financial freedom. 
                2. Also foolish to think that winning lottery is as easy as flushing the toilet.  Therefore, it is obvious that you can not have your life depend on winning lottery.

                  Let me clarify for you.

                  1) As I've said, playing the lottery ,in any way, is very unlikely to lead to financial freedom. But, this is NOT to say it can't happen. So, get it straight!!

                  2) I've NEVER stated that winning the lottery is easy.

                   

                   Anyway, it's pretty clear that you're looking to achieve financial freedom with the lottery and that your life depends on it. But, you shouldn't be ashamed to admit this. There are plenty of people who are in your position.

                    Get a job with good income and set some change for a ticket or two on the multi state jackpot games such as powerball and mega million and just dream that one day lady luck picks you. No fiancial freedom is available in lottery. It is something that may come true but it is not a guarantee money maker.

                    playing what can be afforded...spend half of what was reclaimed.

                        Stick with draw games unless you live in Long Island or the Metro area where scratch offs seem to be better. I usually only play PB,MM, and sometimes C4L.
