my play is 95% online now.  its only occasionally i will  go by a ticket at the store.  and its the night of the draw i will log in and see if its a winning draw. and prob do my record keeping. update the spread sheet etc. but yeah sometimes I will forget and leave it a day, before i go look. it would harly matter, the wins wont be going anywhere. and its not like i can lose the ticket.

2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

    I check the numbers that are drawn daily; instead of letting them simmer for a week or so. How long do you wait before checking to see if numbers won?

    I don't want to be tempted to check the lottery every day. I want to hold off on it, and be more patient..

     

    Party

    I never wait to check them.  Whenever I wait to check them, I often forget to check them.  Then I run into the problem of having 50 unchecked and unmarked tickets a month later.

    Generally I dont wait.

    I want to know if I am a loser right away. (Unfortunately being a loser everyday tempts me into being a more patient checker.)

    If you "work" on your numbers, then you usually know you are a loser right away after watching the drawing and then they can simmer.

    Yes I can see where you are coming from, by wanting to wait to check them.  I suppose its like when I want to skip the live drawing.

    I often obsesses to watch the live drawing,  then I change the channel to watch, and then I find its not on because of a college football game.

    It makes me feel stupid for caring so much about a game.

    You probably want to lessen the obsessive factor of lottery playing.  I can empathize,

    The only solution to obsessive lottery playing that I can see, is to quit playing.

      Every MM drawing I check the same night to see if I have a winner.

        That is a wise choice.  Especially since the drawing is televised.

        Even though it is important to be in it to win it,

        Those who don't check or those who misplace their tickets seldom win.

        The problem is that knowing beforehand that the odds are so crumby, its easy to overlook checking your tickets.

        I mean come on!  What are the chances?

          Only those who know they have a winning ticket can win.
