There's no need for you to ridicule RedStang who was just giving his opinion and experience. Thumbs Down

And rubbing your good fortune in someone's face LottoMetro.... No No That's not only bad etiquette and bad karma, it's also extremely bad manners. But I wouldn't expect someone like you who admits lacking social skills to understand good manners. Wink

It's ok Jon. People get like that when they ride the short bus their entire life.

    If you had won, would they still be horrible?

    Yes they would still be horrible because your probably only going to win the $30 back and you can win that with a $5 ticket.

    If that's the case, then why did you buy the $30 tickets in the first place?

    Btw, I wasn't ridiculing you (as JonD erroneously believes, he has a tendency to do that Wink) or even downplaying those who have bad luck. I was simply commenting that your attitude would be different if you were on the other side (i.e. winning a lot).

    And I would rather ride the short bus with a few winners (in life) than the long bus with a bunch of losers (in life).

    If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the payoff does.

    If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

    2013: -35.14% (158 tickets) || 2014: +42.06% (15 tickets)

      You go Mass players. The marketing geniuses are great at stirring up demand for more players and winners. Someone has to eventually win the jackpots. Coffee

        Thumbs Up Oh no, look out now, you done set him off by questioning his intelligence. Yeah, LottoMetro is a short man on a short bus! Green laugh

        Seriously, it's really creepy that this guy works in the lottery industry, but keeps hanging around here all the time trying to show off and getting into tussles with LP members. I've never seen anything like it. Sad.
