The only time I have buyer's remorse is when I could have played more and hit and didn't...well maybe that is "spender's remorse"..ha-ha

If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

You never know when you will get another hit.

    No i dont feel remorse..the odds of lotto are you are going to have net losses 9 out of 10 times.

    If one is serious about playing any game (sports, lotto etc) we must accept losing as part of the game.

    Benmas,

    I like the way you think.  I checked "sometimes"  But you're right,  I will indeed  probably lose  99% of the time.  It's  the 1%  that I am waiting for.  We all (unless you play QP)  believe in our systems and know that "someday our numbers will hit".  So I figured we are all just playing  constantly so we won't miss that  specific day that our numbers will come up.   Maybe from now on, i will look at it as a numbers game.  1 down, 41 million to go.   LOL.

        Always, but it is a general rule that with the lottery you usually will feel a lot of remorse before you will feel good with a big win. It gets worse after a big win when you go back to remorse for years.

          But another great thing about the lottery is, a very large jackpot win will make you forget about a lifetime of remorse...
