do you ever feel pressure to win maybe because of bills,things you want,deadlines,etc.  i am an emotional person myself and i have felt the urge at times that i must win even if its just a pick 3 or pick 4 straight.i am definitely what you might call a very lucky person.i have had the worst things happen and then something good come out of it as far as betting my numbers.i've went from being at the brink of being broke to having a couple thousand but that kind of luck is the exception not the norm.i've also learned that as long as you wanting a win to happen it definitely won't.but as soon as you quit dwelling or paying close attention that thing will hit.....

      I know playing a lottery is gambling and the odds of winning are bad but I don't gamble to lose and I doubt if anyone else does either.  I haven't won a jackpot yet, but if I didn't think I had a chance to win every time I played I wouldn't play, that's not pressure to win but just part of the game.

        yeah mike i have to say i do feel alot of pressure and stress to win. i really want some great news like that in my life i want a reason to really get happy again because i dont have alot going on in my life right now so i get very emotionally involved in every powerball or megamillions drawing that im entered in. i also enter the state raffles i can drive to so i want to win very badly and i just try to stay positive about winning a jackpot one day. i dont enter the cash3 and cash4 as much as i used to but i have won a cash 4 jackpot for $5000 years ago but that is the most i have ever won in any contest or lottery..Guitar.

            Yes, I do feel pressure to win, I always have the right numbers but end up playing them the wrong time or sometimes I have the right number and don't play at all then that particular number would come, for example for Miami tonight i had the 706 but didn't get to play it and that number came. i guess I need to forget about playing for a while or only play once in a while instead of everyday, because I end up loosing more than I gain. I have been anxious to win for a while, I wish someone can just give me the winning numbers.

              It sure would be nice to win a jackpot but "presure to win" almost sounds like it's implying some kind of guarantee that someone will win.

              There's no such word in lottery as guarantee.

              There's no bet anyone can make that they are suppoossed to win, in fact, when you change cash into a casino chip, a bet on a horse, or a lottery ticket, you are suppossed to lose, otherwise the people booking your action would not be in business.

              Anyone who thmks otherwise needs to call G.A. right away. 

               (Am  I hallucinating or did we have thisvery same thread before, including the title verbatim?)

              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

              Lep

              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                I'm not sure I understand the question.  Tonight I was thinking about what a nightmare my car has been lately, especially since I have another 5 years left to pay for it.  I thought "if I win the $21M Florida Lotto tonight I'll forget about the depreciation loss and just get rid of it."  So, if that's what pressure means, then the answer is yes.  But nobody can feel pressured to win something that is out of his control.  However, I guess like any other form of gambling, sometimes a person feels that winning is the only way out of a bad situation.  We've all watched movies where someone has to win that poker game or pick the right horse or he's toast.

                    ME? Are you kidding?

                    Just because i spend 5 to 10 bucks a day hoping for a major bone thrown my way doesen't mean there's any pressure.

                    Pressure? Are you kidding me?....LOL

                    Just because I bang my head against the wall dosen't mean there's pressure...

                    Just because I talk to myself after a loss doesen't mean I'm having pressure...ARE YOU KIDDING?

                    C'mon.....I mean C'mon....

                              Nah, no pressure here.  Though I do believe I will win a MM or PB jp sometime soon, I honestly don't think about it much.  If I focus on it too long, it zaps my energy so I only think about it in front of the green machine.  I do dream of what I will do when I win though.
