I don't "think," I "know" I will win. That being said, many have won the jackpot who did not think they ever would win, some even forgot they played. So even if you do not think you will win you still can. Many people have won who forgot they even bought a ticket.

    I don't think that I'll win the lottery, I win the lottery lots of times, $2 here $10 there and on rare occasions I might win $13 or more if I'm not trying.

      It's NOT about winning; it's about making the EFFORT.

      I bet $1 (+PP) on ALL PB draws regardless of pot size and $1 on ALL MM draws.  (if the other IGNORANT MM states would learn from the TX example; I would gladly add $1 for megaplier !!!)

      I choose my own numbers (NO QP) and play the same EACH and EVERY draw on BOTH PB & MM.

      The point is simple: 

          (1)  The opportunity to participate in the process is available.

          (2)  It takes ONE bet ONLY.   (I don't have to go nuts - EVER !!!)

          (3)  When my head hits the pillow each night - I know I have done

                          EXACTLY what is required of ME to get what I want.

      As far as I am concerned, I have the WINNING numbers;  The rest is up to whatever force selects those balls to match ME !!!

        For me,when money is involved, especially MY MONEY, it is always about "the winning".  I can have fun doing it, but the money is the bottom line.  I can't remember the last time I threw five dollars worth of losing numbered tickets into the trash can, and did a Gene Kelly dance over it.  I never plan to lose, I always plan to win - first place!  If you are happy losing money, then may there never be an end to joy in your life.

        Cheers

          I plug away at studying numbers and developing systems as a hobby. I don't know that I'll ever win, but I DO hope I will. I am one of those people that doesn't have "luck". I do not believe I will ever just pick up a quickpick and win like that. It happens to the select few, but after 37 years, I know luck isn't on my side with regards to gambling (it does have it's benefits knowing that tho, I hardly spend much money at all on the lottery, and I never went inside of a casino ;-)  ).

          I don't really believe I have the gray matter to tackle the system problems either, I just hold out hope that one day one of my systems picks a number and coincidence will win the day. Even false hope is better than none. "you gotta be in it to win it", I have the "in it" part covered, the rest I'm still working on.

          Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

              I believe that I will win the lottery. I have had alot of small successes and I feel it is only a matter of time before I get a jackpot.

                We all want to think we might win or we wouldn't play. There is indeed a luck factor involved.

                But I think to buy a ticket and say you know you're going to win implies being oblivious about the odds against that happening.

                  Do I think I am going to win the lottery no I KNOW I will win it. I am destined to win. It is not a dream it is a reality for me. I am set, I am ready to win any time the man above sees fit to give it to me.Blue Angel

                   

                  Good luck to all that play PB and MM this week.

                    No, not in 3 lifetimes BUT I do think I'll get a big win from pick4 on the online site.  Its only a matter of time I feel before I hit for $18000 or $27000.

                        I am well aware of the so called 'odds' of winning, but even they are only questionable theories. However actually believing that you will win cannot hurt any, and can only help when it comes to the universal law of attraction. What you believe is very important and goes a long way in determining the many outcomes in your life, not just the lottery. If you believe you are destined for failure you will be most likely. If you believe you will be a success, you will be. You also cannot doubt your own belief system.

                            You have to be optimistic, but realistic at the same time.

                              I hold on to some optimism.
