 Ishan Khan, one of the most famous Powerball winner had a dream ten years before he won a Powerball jackpot. He had a dream of precious gemstones and a huge crowd of people talking to him, with numbers showing: 2, 4, 6, 17, 25 and powerball 31. 

  Khan played the lottery with that number for ten years and eventually won.

  But I can't wait for ten years. :(

  Instead of some dead relatives, it was James Spader and Dan Castellaneta who gave me the numbers, including the mega number 6.

  I hope I won't have to wait for more than seven months.

    You can never put a time limit on "when you're going to win the lottery" because chances are you never will. I'm not trying to be a downer but when I read that "you hope you won't have to wait for more then seven months" I feel your expectations are awfully high and in the long run are setting yourself up to be disappointed. Do yourself a favor and try some of the smaller games,Pick 3 or 4. The odds are way more in your favor.

          The ticket was bought at the Exxon at Key Bridge on the D.C. side, I used to buy gas, lottery, at the C-store, the owner got like 100k and gave everybody who worked there a nice bonus.  Everybody was abuzz when he hit, wondering who he was. It wasn't a quick pick.  But shortly before or after I don't remember, but a lawyer hit downtown for like $20M and everybody was  peeved a lawyer that played on whim hit on a QP.  Oh well. Bottom line is you gotta play to win.

              Does that mean Jack dreamt of sleazy strippers holding the numbers?

              I've been playing since the eighties and haven't won yet. I'm sure I'm not alone in that. I'm just hoping to win before I am eighty. Before fifty would be better still.

                  We all want to win a large jackpot, Ambelamba. Some of us have been playing lottery games for over 30 years and have yet to win a jackpot.  As Lottolaughs wrote, you might be setting yourself up for a big disappointment. 

                  On a lottery board this might be something you don't expect to read, but the odds of winning a PB jackpot are very, very slim.  This doesn't mean you won't ever win, but if you use the same odds and apply them to almost anything else in life, you can see the logic.  After all, if you knew that the chances of getting into a accident, robbed, murdered or being afflicted with a particular disease were 1 in 146 million, that would be fantastic news, right?  With a total estimated population of 301 million people, that would mean only 2 people in the entire country would ever get hurt or sick!  

                  Just keep playing and your chance might come, but don't dwell on it.

                      Now that you've shared your numbers, maybe if you win others will too same as the time all those  people played that fortune cookie number.  Good luck to you all.

                        Do you really think ambelamba is going to be more disappointed then any other lottery player?  He's just investing a dollars on his dream and most lottery players invest a lot more and lose.  He's only going to lose $105 a year and there are many lottery players, some on this board that lose ten times that much every year chasing a similar dream.

                          I wasn't responding to the fact that ambelamba wants to win a jackpot.  If that were true, I'd be a hypocrite, because at least twice a week I close my eyes and say "please, oh please, oh, please" before I check my numbers.

                          I was responding to the Subject of the topic.  It clearly says "I can't wait that long."  Then he/she goes on to say a win is needed within the next 7 months.

                          So, that is why I posted my previous comment.  The subject matter seemed to indicate that a lottery win in the near future is a necessity and something that he expects to win. 

                           I wrote:  "Just keep playing and your chance might come, but don't dwell on it."

                          So I don't see where I was discouraging anyone from buying tickets for a shot at a jackpot.  (BTW, I spend much more than $105 a year.)  I was only showing concern for the sense of urgency I detected reading the subject & related comment.  In fact, I totally relate to someone who feels "I have to win" although I know it's not a realistic or healthful way to think.
