I do not think of it as buyer's remorse so much as just a waste when I buy a certain number for 3 days only to drop it and watch it come straight the very next day. I think of the money I spent the previous days being wasted because I did not see it thru to the end. I did not accomplish my goal.

This is for the Pick 3 game. I rarely play the larger games.

    Today I went to a candy store, and overheard a lady.  She said"I came into the store with $19 and leave with nothing." with a sad voice. 

    Do you feel Buyer's remorse after buying a losing lotto ticket?

    I do sometimes.

    $19 is a drop in the bucket!

    When I was playing the lottery heavier, I could drop $25 a day!

      I said sometimes. Most times if I don't win anything, I figure that's how it goes. I guess there are those rare times when I've had a bad day or I am depressed and check my losing ticket and think well that was a waste. But most times, I don't feel like that. This is my hobbie, so the money is worth spending.

        One day in the future when Florida refunds losing tickets, I'll stop having buyer's remorse.

        I just wish they'd hurry up and start the refunding process already....GEEEESH!

          I Agree!  Just last night I watched a number come out that I had been playing for over a week and didn't play last night!  That is when I have remorse.  I also try to 'pay it forward' when I hit.  When I hit I will double the amount of a tip for a meal or any charity that I might be giving to.   I hit 3 times around christmas and was able to really make chrsitmas for a few other people who I didn't know a little better. 

          I look at the times that I don't hit as an investment towards winning. 

          Money won is twice as good as money earned!

            I use a particular workout to generate my numbers.
            I sometimes feel remorse when I compare my guesses with the
            winning numbers and see where I went wrong - and discover it
            was due to a simple mistake.

            Hindsight is 20/20.

            Playing the lottery is recreation for me. Instead of paying big bucks to
            watch a movie, I rent DVDs and use the difference to buy lottery products.
            I cook my own food, so, that's a savings. Don't drink or smoke. so, I can
            lose a few $$ everyday.

            I just work harder with my workouts. Maybe one day I'll get all the winning
            numbers on the same line.  LOL

              Justxploring..let me tell you something..I am disabled..so I know how tough things are and can get..I am very thankful for what little bit I get but it sure is no where near enough..good thing I am not dating any women.."Heh Honey..would you like to go to Bugerking tonight or McDonalds"..HAHAHA

              Not to go too off-topic but...

              I don't know how old you are or your personal situation, and I realize there are plenty of women who demand to be wined and dined and are interested in one's bank account, but don't let that stop you.  There are also just as many who are looking for a friend & good companionship. You can make spaghetti and then watch a DVD.  Don't know where you live in Miss, but you can take a walk in a park or along the beach or find free concerts at park and churches or temples.  Again, I don't know your disability so these things might be difficult. Just don't isolate yourself (writes the recluse)  You'll wind up talking to spiders on your porch or worse...posting on a lottery board!

               Eek

              BTW, if you're going to dine out, forget fast food.  A pizza is cheaper than 2 combo meals!

                  I feel buyer's remorse whenever I buy anything! Big Grin I am a "no frills" type which is why I rarely even play the lottery. Just having fun trying to figure it all out, that's all.

                    I'm not making light of this, really. I'm sorry you are in pain. I saw on CNN yesterday that someone's dog accidentally stepped on the trigger of his shotgun and the same thing happened.

                        I checked sometimes. I always think of what else I could have purchased with the money. But you know what else?  I am totally frightened on the one day ( it doesnt happen often) when I forget to play my numbers. I panic when I think it would be just my luck that my numbers will hit that night.  Then I feel a total sense of relief the next morning when I check my numbers and realize that I wouldnt  have won anyway.  I try to play my numbers  really close to the cut off time.  But sometimes I get caught up in something and time passes & its too late to play.  It doesnt happen too often, believe me.

                          I don't get buyers remorse for losing lotto tickets.  I spend the money and take my chances.  If you feel remorse perhaps you should reexamine your budget and look at how much money you spend on tickets?  Not telling anyone how to live but if you are buying lotto tickets with food money or your rent money you shouldn't play as often.  I only feel non- buyers remorse if I decide not to buy a ticket for a drawing waiting for a roll-over and a bigger jackpot and the jackpot gets hit that drawing!

                            I don't feel any remorse for buying losing tickets. Personally I think if someone feels remorse it is because they either spent their last dollar or the money was to be used to pay for something of importance like a utility bill, but instead they took a chance to win some extra money but lost. Now that the money is gone they feel remorse for buying the ticket(s).

                            I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

                              I made my post before reading all the posts but I agree with this one.
