Hello, I am a first time poster here...but have been looking at this site off and on for a week or two now.

Thanks to the anonymous nature of the internet..I have to confess something. It's slighlty embarrasing:

I feel like I am actually going to win the powerball drawing. I just started buying tickets for about one and a half months. no more than 3 dollars at a time per bi-weekly drawing. But I feel like I am going to win and it feels as natural as me saying I am going to sleep tonight. Not a matter of if..but when.

I do not have mental or fantasy issues in my life. In fact, I think it's crazy with the odds like they are. But I have this deep feeling I am going to won.

Now, I am sure most people will say "koo-koo" :-) and that's ok..but what I am seeking is information ..am I the only one who feels this way or is it common among players. Has anyone ever won that felt the same way?

 Also, anyone have a good site to read winners stories? they make me happy to read. It's always cool to hear how their life changes. I have read the negative stories too. :-(

I feel so silly posting all of this.

signed,

lottery wacko

    that makes two of us.  there is no doubt in my mind that i will win the powerball jackpot.  i have only been playing since late feb of this year and the closest i have come was a matching three white balls a few weeks ago...then last week i matched two white balls and the powerball.  considering i only play 4 dollars a week i think i'm on the right track.  let's just hope when we do win it will be when the jackpot is more than 10-15 million.

    i have to confess that while i am confident that i am going to win....i have a feeling that when i do win i will be splitting the jackpot with someone else.

      You aren't alone, nobody buys a lottery ticket expecting to lose.  I've read posts of people who said they would have won had they only bought a ticket.  Welcome to the club.

          lottowacko.. i feel the exact same way as u do. i have even gone as far as designing the new house that will be built when i win.  i also have the organizations written down who i will donate money to. i dont play powerball though.. right now i concentrate on the little lotto and the lotto in the state of illinois.

          i also look for websites that have lotto winners on em. i've made a book out of clippings from newspapers and magazines of folks who have won. i read those to keep me happy. i also enter a bunch of sweepstakes so when i win those, im more happy LOL. 

          i know i will be more blessed than i already am. its just a matter of time!

                Same here, I have a plan of where I will buy my mansion "when" I will win the lottery, the number of rooms, bathrooms, gym, library, etc. I am ABSOLUTELY sure that I will win the lottery. I already know what cars I'm going to buy....ahem...Ferrari F430 Spyder, MB S65 AMG, Landrover Rangerover, just to name a few....cough, cough. Your not alone buddy.

                  I got that feeling a lot too, that I am going to win the jackpot one time in the future.

                  Still waiting...

                  I sitt in front of the TV watching the draws thinking I know it's my time this time and is preparing to go s.



                  But it didn't happen that draw either. But wait, once in the future it will happen. At least that's what I want to believe.

                    I like to day dream all the time about winning the powerball especially when the jackpot is on a run like it is now.  Then I window shop on the internet for high priced vehicles, houses, clothes you name it anything to keep the dream alive that someday I will win.

                      ha..that's great to see others feel the same..I don't feel so bad about it.

                      BUT, at the same time..If so many others didn't have that feeling I would feel more "unique" and more trustworthy of my gut feeling.

                       

                      I too have a detailed plan for winnings. I hope to execute that plan oneday. It sure is fun to compile a list.

                       

                      I only do quick pick at this point.

                       

                      A dollar ticket for a little extra hope along the way is a good deal I think.

                          I don't think you are wackaoo. I mean why play unless you really believe you will win?

                          I think when you do win it will be shocking, but you could be ready for it!!! I believe I will win also. If I did not believe it I would not bother playing.

                           

                          I even have a detailed plan with how I would spend whatever sum of money, with priority being placed on paying down debt and taking classes.

                              I would not get a mansion if I won.  I'm smart enough to know the amount of time involved in taking care of such a large residence.  Paying people to do it is not a good idea either, unless you're going to continue to work after winning a jackpot, as those are the kind of expenses that drain your lottery winnings.

                              ok, I just bought my 3 quickpicks for Saturday's drawing. I am ready to go. :-)

                               

                              Man, it would be so cool to get that Jackpot. I'm sure no one would argue that. I've got 3 sets of numbers that are all waiting for the great and powerful Oz to call them up!

                               

                              I would buy a rather large house, but I am also aware of the external costs of upkeeping a property of that size. So location would be important for tax reasons and things.
