Lately I've been spending $3-$5 on MM and about $6 on PB.  I've trying to keep a budget so I can play over several months or longer.

    Looks like I bought 5 too many for tonight.  2 numbers across 5 tickets and nothing to show for it.  I did, however, win 2 bucks off the sole Oklahoma Hot Lotto ticket I bought for a buck.  Go figure! This PB stuff is a big tease.

      For me it's one ticket per game played.

      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.

        its $3 per week on PB and MM.  i go halves with a buddy in usa. he spends the money, there, i buy tickets here. we try n stay in balance. he gets a bit of aussie action, i get a shot at the usa power ball jackpots. some times we buy more in a draw, like an advertised jackpot of $1.5B i think we blew an extra $12 on those draws.

          I buy one of each PB/MM/hoosier lottery and play cash 5 on occasion. I buy my tickets for a month at a time so i only have to purchase once a month..keeps my lottery budget in line and tidy. When i win a few bucks i treat myself to some scratch offs.

              I need only one ticket to dream.

              Buying two costs twice as much when my dreams aren't twice as good but rather they stay the same. Some might say that well but your odds of realizing those dreams are twice what they were with a single ticket. Irrelevant - two times almost zero is still almost zero when two times one dollar is not just one dollar.

                I Agree!

                Especially that we see it is possible to win with just one ticket....or four
