    I do not. The odds of winning are not worth me wasting my money.

    I get it. I dont think the guy in front of me at the convenience store who buys 50 tickets a week gets it.

    I don't spend more than a few bucks....I figure if it's meant to happen then it doesn't matter how much I spend, so I'll save my money.

    If I happen to be in a place where they sell tickets and it's a big one and if there's no line, then maybe I'll buy a ticket.

    I buy scratchoffs, they are winners more often. I never win anything on the numbers so I only buy one occasionally.

    Sometimes. Quick picks when the pots get big.

    I happen to know the son of Max Beberman who's quite a genius in his own right. He's made up his own statistical tables and formulas and does quite well on the pick-3 and pick-4. :thup:

    I regard the lottery as a tax on stupidity.

    I don't pay any taxes I don't have to.

    My dad always played pick 3 and 4. He was pretty good at it. He played some sort of raffles at the VFW too. They're fun. More fun than consistently losing the big number games.
