          1 Powerball and 1-2 Mega Millions but I usually wait a few draws whenever the jackpot is won.

            I only regularly play the Texas Lotto. Odds on the PB and MM are just too astronomical for me to believe that I could win. I wouldn't need that much money anyway. For each TL drawing I buy one ticket for each million in cash value. The jackpot starts at 5 million (about 3 cash option), so I buy 3 tickets per drawing. The jackpot only increases by about 200k (cash value) per drawing so it takes a while to get higher. I'll throw $5 at the Texas Two Step if the jackpot goes over $500,000, which only happens once a month or so.

              l  decided at the last minute to purchase an extra PB ticket tonight- so l got three instead of the 2. l also bought 5 super lotto tickets,generally l would buy 2 as well. Yeah l know, but l figure that since l don't smoke- that's the price of a packet of cigarettes right there or is it? Either way you look at it- its all smoke if l don't win. But l forge ahead regardless.

                  Gonna get $10 for 2 Step which is 1.1 million. $5  for Tx Lotto. Always buy 1 each for MM and PB with megaplier and powerplay.

                  CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

                    it really depends on the game, and on how much OT I did last week.

                      I spend what it costs to ensure my profit without worrying about my odds of hitting 'cause I just can't afford to lose blindly. But, I play Pick4 which is light years from any jackpot game's odds. 

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

                      There are seven days in the week...'Someday' isn't one of them.

                        I like to play D4 but I don't too much anymore because it's a bugger to hit straight. And frankly, 5 grand really isn't enough $$$ to do what I need. I've played $5 straight for $25k occasionally, never could hit, but again, $25k isn't enough either.

                          Well, with due respect, I believe that 'frequency of the hit' comes into play here. If a player is trying to play and hit after every last draw result, then I personally believe it's a dead end and that's not a bump on anyone, okay. For me, this game is like being an experienced batter at the plate...I'm not swinging at just any ol' thing. It's gotta be close to what I want or need to make decent contact...or I'll just walk away, literally. It took me a long time and lots of losses to develop such discipline but, I wouldn't trade it for anything.

                          I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that if you could turn even $1,000 in pure profit twice per week, you'd be a very happy man.Wink

                            C4L 1 line for every draw.

                            LFL 1 line for 10 advance draws when ever I go to Delaware

                            Jerseycash5 for 1 line whenever it's over $300,000

                            Pic6 for 1 line whenever CV is over $3.5 mil

                            1 line MM and/or PB whenever it's in record territory and I'm in anonymous territory.

                               I used to play in Group Play. So I am playing with a huge amount of tickets. For example with 200 tickets for one draw and the price is really amazing.

                              Have you ever choose this type of playWink
