I don't buy lottery tickets, period. I would rather invest the money or stick it in a savings account where it can accrue interest. Playing the lottery is basically just gambling, and as any casino owner will tell you, in the long run the house always wins. You might have a lucky streak but if you play the lotto consistently over a lifetime it's pretty much a sure bet that you will lose much more than you win. I understand that many people just do it occasionally for fun and that's fine but when I see someone in a gas station buying fifty or a hundred tickets it just makes me feel bad for them.
whenever i see the loto ticket seller. that doesnt make me a gambler though
I only buy losing tickets. I don't like to lose so I don't buy very often. I do buy just to remind myself not to.
not yet buy any single ticket. I'm against this as my father is quite addicted.
I only buy Powerball when its over $100 million. I buy scratchers on Saturday. I spend about $20 a month.
a week ago once or twice a week, and then i won $200.00 tuesday night april .26,2010 cash 4 1959 is what i played they called 9159
I play often now and started to win a bit more once I started to realize what not to pick verses what to pick. Lots-o-luck involved in the lottery, but there are some systems that can help you increase your odds of winning more frequently.
I don't buy lotto tickets. But I do buy scratch tickets. And I've won quite a few times. Nothing huge...
I buy them whenever there are rollovers and big jackpots. Why, I don't know, surely the chances of winning would be higher to play on a regular basis and it is not that winning 3 million would not be enough, but still, I just think it is that feeling inside, knowing that you have a slim chance of becoming one of those lucky millionaires over night! If you think about how many lottery millionaires are made each year around the world. Regardless of US, UK or other European lotteries, the guys that won aren't any more intelligent.. apart from the fact that they may have played on a more regular basis...
Honestly, I thought playing the lottery was just like gambling, until I read this guys story:

About once a week. I play the Take 5 and Pick 10. Even though the payout is lower the odds of winning are greater. I try to limit it to $20 a week with that and scratch-offs. if I win then I might play again later in the week

To all atheists: what if I asked God for the winning lotto numbers and He said 13, 8, 28, 18, 2, 48and you won, will you believe in Him OR will you say it was luck, coincidence and rigged
