Update 4/15/15

I haven't posted in a while since I gave up playing the lottery during lent. But now that lent is over, I decided to play again. Some new scratch off tickets have been on the market and I have been playing them with some luck.

A few days into playing again, I played the $5.00 ticket - Golden Ticket and I won $50.00
I have also been playing the $5.00 ticket - $100,000 Extreme Green. I have won $20 on that one just the other day. I won another $15 today on the Golden Ticket too. These two games have been paying out, so I suggest you play these before all of the major prizes are gone.

Yesterday, I went to a convenient store to buy my lunch which they had on special. I have bought tickets there before with no luck at all. When I pulled up to the store, I noticed they had a sign that said "We sold a winning ticket". I asked the clerk what did they sell and she replied $250. I thought, $250 that isn't much for a sign, but then she showed me a picture of the ticket she sold (from her phone). It was a $10 ticket Holiday Magic (which is no longer selling) and the person that won match his number 35 to the number on the ticket for a prize of $250,000. A customer in the store told me she knew the person that won and said he had bought it just a few days before Christmas. What a Christmas they must have had. I noticed that the number on the bottom was number 30, so now, I have been asking if any $10 tickets have the number 30.

The clerk at the store said that someone had just bought that ticket before and they won $10 on it. The clerk's niece was asked to scratch off the big winner but she declined saying that someone just bought a ticket and won $10 and she did not think if would win. Who knew.

Well, keep playing and keep an eye out for the new games. Remember, you have a better chance of winning with newer games.

Good Luck.

Update 2-9-2015

As of this posting, the Powerball is up to an estimated: $450 million. Seems like more and more people are playing and wanting some kind of strategy to win.

Here is my input on that: There are 35 bonus balls in the Powerball lottery. One thing you can do, if you want to spend the money doing it, is select the numbers 1-35 (or 35 tickets). Each ticket play each powerball number, that way, you are guaranteed to win something. Now since it costs $2 that would be $70 invested for a guaranteed chance to win something. If you decide to use the Powerplay, you would be spending $3.00 per ticket x 35 = $105 which can multiply your non winning jackpot by 2, 3, 4, or 5 times. Is it worth it? If you have the money to spend, maybe. Without the powerplay you would be guaranteed to win a minimum of $1. With the powerplay you are guaranteed to win a minimum of $2. Now that is the lowest guaranteed winnings you would get. It is a gamble to spend $70 just to win a guaranteed $1 or spend $105 to win a guaranteed $2, but that is the minimum. If the multiplier is higher, you could win more, plus if you hit the bonus plus other numbers, you can win more as well. It is all a gamble. At $450 million I may take that gamble just once, but only if I have the extra cash to do it. Don't go boring money or put yourself in a bind by using your money you have for other things such as groceries, bills, etc. to make this gamble, that would not be worth it. But if you have the extra cash to do it, live a little. Again, it is a gamble and mostly likely, you will lose, but that is the nature of the game.

Good Luck.

Update 11/14/14

Back on 11/4/14, I had played the Mega Millions when the jackpot was 321 Million. I had mention that because the Mega Millions has 15 bonus balls, that I would play all 15, i.e. 1-15 and have them megaplied. So, I spent $30. I was guaranteed to hit the bonus ball and win something, which I did. I hit the bonus ball of 1 + 1 number and I won $8.00. Ok, so I am in the hole $22, but I gambled and did not recover what I put in. This is the only time I have done this. I may do it again in the future if the jackpot is large like this one. It is worth a try, you never know.

Update for 11/4/14

Well, tonite's jackpot for the MegaMillion is a whopping 321 Million. I may try my strategy of playing 15 quickpicks on the bonus ball + megaplied. I am guaranteed to win something because I should hit the bonus ball.

Hope it works.

Like to hear from readers to see what they have done.
Good Luck.

Update 10/20/14

Just a small note. I have been playing the scratch off ticket - $100,000 Merry Money #1653. I noticed that the odds of winning are 1 in 3.33. Here lately, I have been winning on number 12 ticket. I have hit $20, $10 and $5 the last few days on multiples of 3, i.e., 9, 12, 15, etc. Mainly it has been on 12.

Just a note and try it if you get any mutliples of 3 on this ticket. Can't guarantee you will win, but just going by my experience. Never hurts to try.

Good Luck.

Update 10/8/14

So I haven't posted in a while, just because I have been busy at work. Thought I would like to start by saying, thank you to those of you out there who take the time to read my posts.

Here lately, within the last month or so, I have been buying the $10.00 ticket $200,000,000 Game No. 1644. I have had some luck with that game. I have won $30.00 twice. Hit $30.00 today in fact. Have hit $10 a couple of times as well. I don't buy it much, because of it being $10.00. I usually play the $1, $2, and $5 scratchoffs. I like the $3.00 scratch off games, but don't like the ones out currently.

Again, thanks for readying and good luck.

Update 7/8/2014

So, here lately, I have been in a financial funk. Things just not going my way. I was down to my last few dollars.
Had a $10 bill and bought something to eat, got $5.00 in change back and, just my luck, lost the $5.00.

So this morning, my wife gave me $5.00 for my lunch. I had in my truck a $10.00 winning scratch off that I was holding just in case I need some money. So, I bought my lunch at a convenient store and bought 2 $2.00 and 1 $1.00 tickets, but did not win anything. I had used up my $10.00 winning on that and lunch. I still had the $5.00 that my wife gave me this morning, plus a few $1.00 bills. I went to a 7-11 and bought a drink and a $5.00 (20X The Cash) ticket and a $2.00 (Sizzlin' Cash) ticket. Won $10 on the 20x ticket and did not win on the other one. Looking at the number in the bottom right hand corner of the ticket (sizzlin' cash) it said 56. I looked at the odds of the ticket and it say 1 in 4.44 so I thought, 4 goes into 56 evenly, and I did not win, so let me try the next number - 57, and I did. I cashed in my $10 winning and bought the sizzlin' cash ticket - number 57. I went back to my truck to scratch it off and I won $50.00 on that $2.00 ticket. I went back inside to cash it. I got my money but I bought a $5.00 ticket (Golden Key). This ticket is the one I had cashed in at lunch and I remember it being on 61. I bought the ticket at number 60 and did not win. I am thinking, I should go back for 61, but I did not. I went home.

Sometimes, luck is just involved.

I have had luck on the games Golden Key and now Sizzlin' Cash. I haven't had much luck on Solid Gold which are the new tickets. Looking at it, there are many winners out there, but it has been out longer than the Golden Key. Golden Key just came out and people seem to be winning on that one. Sometimes, some games that come out do not produce winners. I notice this trend. But sometimes you can get lucky.

Thanks for reading and good luck.
