        Nope, try to stay away from the 'fever'.

        I don't really see any sense in fantasizing about spending money you haven't won yet, and if you do win it you'll be 'shell shocked' and a lot of those fantasies will change.

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

            Well, no...but I did have rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu back in the early 70's, so hopefully I'm immune.

                Fever? Naw. Just the usual. I play every draw for MM, PB, and TxLotto. Mix of picks and quick picks.

                 

                Almost lottery fatigue actually. We have an office lottery pool that plays when the cash option hits $100m. It's not a big pool, just 3 tickets per player, but we dropped PB from $6 to $4 for only 2 tickets per person. We've been playing twice a week since the new year. First MM, then right into PB. Nobody here is rich, but nobody wants to be left out when the pool hits.

                 

                All this extra lottering is keeping me from having Tex-Mex once a week. Thud

                  I played PB on Jan 3, then decided I was done with it. But for the last couple draws I jumped back in. When it's won, I'm out again. I buy work pools tics also.

                  I'm in every other jackpot game in Tx without fail.

                    I first noticed that I had contracted at least a mild case when I found myself debating whether to get one or two tickets for the next drawing. (Going with one, though if no one wins, I may spend big - four dollars! - on Saturday.) Other symptoms I've noticed: lurking more on LP; reading about the country's more recently erected residential skyscrapers (mostly out of curiosity, as even in the one-in-175-million-odd chance that I win, I'm not likely to move into one); and considering which organizations might make the most effective use of my donation, whether I win or not.

                    Playing by myself.

                          Ok Raven, whatever you say:  you do know that it's okay to forego that vaccine & let it all hang out? This is one of those times. .Big Smile

                              I get excited when the Powerball reaches at least 100 million (though even at 40 Million I still play). The difference when the jackpot gets very high is I will buy 2 tickets with Powerplay instead on just buying 1 ticket.
