      yes, I track how much I spend for each game and if I am up or down for that particular game.

          I just started playing the lottery not that long ago.  I haven't really thought about keeping track of my losses so far but I think I will go ahead and do that.  I have every ticket that we have bought so far.

            I didn't for 2013/2014 and didn't really play in 2015 but have started keeping track in 2016 by using my signature on here and keeping the tickets in an envelope and writing on the front of it...

              I used to but don't anymore.

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

              Lep

              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.

                Do you keep track of your wins and losses?

                I have, but did it to evaluate a playing strategy.

                        I keep a rough estimate in my head over the past 25 plus years.  I'm WAY far behind from breaking even.  But it's ok.... I'm only in it to win it all.   Then past losses won't mean a darn thing.

                          I know I am no where near breaking even, so no, not really. I find no entertainment in knowing what I've spent on entertainment, and I haven't won anything substantial enough to be worth adding up.
