Believe it or not, I rarely run into "lottery players" in my city. It's so rare. Maybe Sacramento is not a big ticket selling city. I have heard more "no's" to my question "Do You Play The Lottery?" than "yes". (And I ask everyone! lol. Was surprised the clerk at Rite Aid the other day said yes! Been quite awhile since I've heard that :)

Aside from me no one else in the fam besides my aunt and uncle play.

I'm wondering where my fascination with the lottery came from. Mom? Dad? Are you my real parents??

What about you? Who else plays in your family?

    I know that my mom has played the lottery for going on 20 years or so.

    I just found out that my brother in law and my sister in law play, too.

      I think I picked up the gambling bug from my mom. She used to gamble a lot when we lived in Vegas but basically quit. She does buy lottery tickets and scratch off tickets sometimes, but she's not into playing like I am.

      One of my grandfathers was really into betting on horses. But other than that, I'm the only one in my family that likes buying lottery tickets that I know of.

        Shoot! Too late to add brother/sister in-law. Guess we can add mother/father in-law too,lol. 

        Was straining my brain to think of more family members,thanks for the reminder!

          What is it with mom's and gambling? LoL. My mother loves the casino! On her 21st birthday she drove with her parents to Vegas for the first time. (We're talking almost 60 years ago.) She said she was going 100 miles an hour. There were no speed limits then. When she told my father that story he said, "That's so dangerous! What if a tire blew out?" Her reply was, "The tires weren't even touching the ground!"

            I have no idea. LOL She was a  housewife so I figure it gave her and maybe a lot of other moms a thrill to gamble.

              I have my oldest son playing.

              He's trying to surpass what I have once won, lol.

              I'm not telling him that he has done that, last year.  lmaooooooooooooooooo

              My youngest son plays sometimes. 

               

              Good Luck.

                  Mine was a discard vote. I think like many here on LP they're waiting for me to hit.

                  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.

                      Only have 1 relative that plays regularly and we have an agreement on a certain split % when the time comes. No other family members I know of actually play the lottery at all.

                              My mom played some when I was growing up in Ohio. Back then I think there was only a pick 6 game that paid $250000, I think. I never thought much of it, and she didnt play often as far as I know.

                              My brother played Cash 5 when he lived in Tx, but he's in Wisconsin and I don't know if he plays or not anymore.

                              I'm the player in my household. My wife and son will play once in a great while if MM or PB gets really big, and she buys me scratchoffs for Christmas.

                              I do wish that there weren't so many games nowadays. I would be happy if there were just the jackpot games.
