What do the best athletes and coaches have in common? They have a solid game plan. Lottery players can have a game plan too, and Play Smart™ can help you craft one.
Play Smart wants lottery players to be informed because the more you know, the more fun you’ll have playing our games.
Great players track their stats to help them become better, more responsible players. You can track your lottery play with the interactive Spending Calculator. Understanding how much you spend on lottery games becomes a winning strategy in the lottery’s playbook.
Once you see how much you spend, you can:
- Know your limits
- Set a budget
- Decide how much you spend (when you play online)
Now you have a game plan, but how do you keep play fun?
- Have other hobbies outside of playing the lottery
- Put family and friends first
- Take a break if playing is no longer fun

I have entered a lot of 2nd chance drawings and I don't know if I've ever won anything? I check the site regularly and look at the winners and I don't know why I've never won.
I've tried to talk to chat on the site but no help they give me a number to call?
Just wondering if I've ever won anything and couldn't be reached by phone I get so many scam calls I don't answer them I sure hope it wasn't a call I should have answered ?? ??
