Hey everyone, just curious how often you guys play, and how many different lotteries each of you play?

Do you guys keep track of win / loss? Do you use any tools to pick numbers / save picks?

    My play is limited to $2 a week sometimes 3.  Usually only play megamillions, gave in and played powerball earlier this year.  Since the price increase, dont play it

        I keep a very detailed spreadsheet of my expenditures and wins, but I rarely play anymore.  Sometimes months will go by without buying a ticket.

          Try to stick to once  month on scratch offs but found myself also throwing in $1 or $2/week for MM

             I play advance play.  Twenty draws for Mega Millions.  Ten draws for Power Ball.  Twenty draws for Super Lotto Plus.

              One line per game per draw.      One drawback to this strategy is that I am stuck playing the low jackpots after someone wins big. Like last night , Super Lotto Plus here in California was won. Now I am stuck with a seven million dollar jackpot before taxes and deductions and have about eight draws left on my ticket.

              MM $20.00   PB $20.00 SLP $20.00

            Party

              $7M it's not bad at all. Our local equivalent resets and falls to $½M No Nod and stays there for 5 draws. Naughty

              I too play advanced draws for 4games. MM, PB, L4L, MbD. $12 a week

              That money's gone fo ever

                I play Wild Card every Wednesday and Saturday and I usually spend between $6.00 to $10.00 per drawing. Sometimes I will buy Hot Lotto or Weekly Grand. Every so often I will play Lucky for Life, Mega Millions or Powerball but not that much.

                I do buy advanced drawings for out of state games sometimes. I drove to Montana yesterday and picked up some lines for Montana Cash for the next few months.

                I don't really keep track of my wins/loses. I just know that at the moment I've lost more than I've won. Wink

                  Hey everyone, just curious how often you guys play, and how many different lotteries each of you play?

                  Do you guys keep track of win / loss? Do you use any tools to pick numbers / save picks?

                  Meant to answer this yesterday and got sidetracked.

                  Personally, I play every jackpot game in Texas, MM, PB, Lotto, and 2 Step. Occasionally Daily 4, once in a great while P3, once in a great while Cash 5. Also play All or Nothing once a day 4 or 5 times a week, and also have started to play scratch offs.

                  Well, aside from buying a pocket knife for my collection every now and then, this is my hobby.

                    I play Pick 4 at least once daily and, if the numbers meet my criterion, I'll play twice per day. I've been using a percentage of money won to fund my scratch-off appetite lately. I'm gonna hit big pretty soon, I can just tell.

                    Small games, frequent wins, and regular payouts 'cause.....

                            As often as I can, when I'm in a state that has a lottery.
