    What would it imply to become a full time or part time pro gambler?

    I won over 2340 in dollars with one win and it was pre-taxed. Your state is a crook, you paid the tickets with taxed money.

    "Your state is a crook, you paid the tickets with taxed money."

    Most of the extra taxes was federal so I would have paid the same even if I had lived in another state.

     * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

      They probably don't "sale" sweet tea.

      They probably do "sell" sweet tea.

      Did you finish elementary school?

      LOL.

          "What would it imply to become a full time or part time pro gambler"

          A professional gambler or (professional lottery player) would be in the business of playing lotteries for a living and would keep records of losses/gains and pay taxes same as any other business much like the the Michigan couple that traveled to Massachuttes to play its WinFall games before it was disbanded. 

          *note They had to go to court and prove their playing was a business to get credit for their losses.

          Professional and Casual Gamblers are IRS designations with one difference being professionals must record every gambling transaction and use Schedule "C". A gambling activity could be considered a trade or business if it is pursued full time, in good faith and with regularity, to make income for a living, and not merely as a hobby. IMO, it made more sense for the Michigan couple to prove they played the lottery as a business before the buying their first ticket. They were an exception because very few lottery players could actually find a way to show profits over extended play.

          For smaller prizes, many lottery players pocket the cash from a ticket that pays $10 or $100. In fact, that income is still technically taxable, even though the IRS receives no report it.

          Next time I see my CPA, I'll ask what "technically taxable" means to a casual gambler. "The IRS receives no report" speaks for itself.

            My mother, God rest her soul, didn't finish high school. She did, however, when she was in her 30's go to college, graduated in 3 years, then got her Masters degree in English Literature, did her thesis on Chaucer.

            She was much smarter than you, or me. One thing she taught me was to speak and write the English language.

            Sorry if I come on a little strong in my reply, but you bring up my mother and I get nasty quick.

              a good lottery system needs a player to be patient. Have a bankroll.

                 I concur. My "systems" only consist of three things.

                1. studying past results
                2. formulating ways to utilize patterns
                3. patience

                Think amongst Chaos. Play in Order.

                      WOW!

                      Are you suggesting that lottery workouts based on analysis of game history (events) are losers??
                      If so, it would appear that most all lottery system players are wasting their time and money.
                      I don't think you will find much support because there is but one alternative - odds and probabilities.
                      Here's what I'm saying.
                      Sometime in the past a group of mathematicians and system designers got together and designed a difficult game to win where
                      the State would be the biggest winner. 
                      The game is called Pick 3.
                      To win, gamblers would have to correctly guess what the next winning triad would be.
                      The creators figured out exactly how many triads were possible - 1,000.  (Odds 1/1000)
                      They compiled a listing breaking the game down into its smallest components.
                      For example. There is only on triad having integers 123.  There are variations, of course.
                      They counted the possible Pairs, etc.
                      Then, based on some unknown factors, they determined that 123 should arrive once in every X-revolutions (drawings)
                      I don't know the exact figure, but the probabilities for every permutation/combination is available somewhere.
                      Great. The State would be in control and would rake in the cash - and they are!!
                      Face it, the folks buying the tickets won't recognize how difficult winning a drawing would be.
                      Then, they put the game in a Randomnizer, or mechanical ball machine or a computer.
                      And the known 'game at rest' playing field was destroyed, for the state and the players.
                      True, there is still only one 123, but known odds and probabilities no longer apply.
                      This is why triad 666 came up in back-to-back drawings in Texas and again several days later, but has since disappeared!!
                      It seems to me that folks who are betting there money that the output of the Pick 3 randomnizer will match the basic game design
                      are traveling down a dark road.
                      Personally, I use game history as the source for my tracking charts.
                      These charts produce Follower information containing valid clues.
                      A lot of time and effort is required but good answers to the What's Next? questions are always present.
                      Only problem I have is my 'brain matter' will most often veer right or left, instead of staying on target.
                      Game history that is processed properly is the answer to the main Topic question.
                      In my humble opinion, of course.
                      Happy 4th everyone!!

                        If you have read the rules on all American lotteries websites then you know at least a quarter of the prize money is withheld for taxes regardless of where you're from.

                          At least that seems to be true for lottery drawings but lotteries aren't the only games people play..
