    do you ever buy lottery based on having a lucky feeling or a good instinct that you'll win something?

    well i hardly ever buy scratch offs but i had a funny urge to just do it while buying a coke yesterday.i bought one for a dollar and won eight dollars back and took the whole family for a mcdonalds dinner.needless to say my three year old daughter is bugging me to go buy a scratch off so she could have another happy meal tomorrow,lol.

    Whenever I have had a "Lucky Feeling"  I spent too much on the tickets and got ZIP!  Not even enough for the dollar menu!Confused

       I try to only play when I'm feeling lucky which happens to coincide with streaks in my pick 3 workouts. I'm up 250 bucks for the month about 1000 for the year... just waiting for the next one. I did play 455 today 50 cent box and I really shouldn't have.

        Same here!  Sometimes I think "this is it" and I don't even get one number.  However, I often don't follow through when I get those feelings and then someone wins at the local supermarket or my numbers (or some of them) are drawn.  Then I wonder if the "gut feeling" was a message, if you know what I mean.  So I guess we need to figure out the difference between a spontaneous whim and listening to that inner voice.

        That being said, if I won instead of the other person, then that would mean he/she wasn't meant to be there.   I mean, if someone truly believes that God, The Universe, The Laws of Attraction or some other spiritual guide is connected with winning, then why would that person be guided to your destiny? 

        In general, I've never been too lucky, so I'm way past due!

          You had to have ordered off the dollar menu, right? LOL

          Yeah, in the past I've bought on an impulse.  Sometimes I won and sometimes I didn't.

          It's difficult to know when an impulse is valid, or when you are just fooling yourself by thinking it is...

            I sure do , last week I had a feeling about one of my qps and won. There has been times when I felt that the number was lucky and didnt put extra money on it and it came up. I wanted to kick my butt.

              From time to time I'll get a lucky feel & give it a whirl, but I usually do better, when I go get a few scratchers with my Dad... I'll play a few dollars & he'll say "I don't know what you've been playing but the next one of such and such a ticket is going to be a winner..." more times than not - they sure have been winners... We don't do so good apart, but together we make a pretty good lotto team... Pogo

                I do buy a ticket on a gut feeling sometimes.  Sometimes it pays off....sometimes it doesn't.

                Most recent time it paid off was when GA's $10 Millionaire Mania tickets were starting.  Bought one just to try out the new tickets.....free ticket.  Cashed it in at the same store, got another one from another roll....another free ticket.  I was looking at the other tickets while the cashier was scanning my winner.  I was looking at maybe getting 5 $2 Georgia Jackpot when I saw the $2 Mega Bucks.  It had been a long time since I played a $2 Mega Bucks....and I've never had much luck on those (unlike the $3 Mighty Mega Bucks).  My gut kicked in and told me to get 5 of those.  So, when the cashier told me I had $10, I asked for 5 $2 Mega Bucks.  Four of the tickets were duds......but one of them (I think it was the 4th ticket)....hit Mega for 5x $3 and a number match for $10.  I went back in and took the moolah. Big Smile

                A Gold account on Lottery Post:  $4.95

                A Millionaire Jumbo Bucks scratcher:  $20

                  I don't usually play the afternoon games, but did today on a hunch and I'll find out in about 10 minutes whether or not it was a good idea.

                    Yes, I go with my gut feeling. Tell you about something that happened to me at the Sam Houston Race track in Houston, Texas. It was my first time at this track. I went to the cashier and told the cashier I wanted a 2 dollar bet on horse #2. I got my ticket and put it in my pocket and went outside to watch the race. When horse #2 did not come in first I thought I had lost. The horse that won was a long shot. When I looked at my ticket, it was this horse that won. I won $36 on that bet. I figured my spirit guides could not get though to me so they communicated through the cashier by giving me the winning ticket.

                    Another time, in Houston, I had this urge that I was going to win something. I went to the convenience store and bought a scratch off and won $60 right off.

                    Another time, here in Ohio, had that same urge like I was going to win something. I bought $10 quick pick Classic Lotto and got 4 numbers right and won $70.

                    When I get that feeling, I just let it guide me and I don't resist it. Smile

                        No, I've stopped believing in "lucky feelings". Too often that lucky feeling never materialized any winnings.


                        Instead I just  bet and hope for the best no matter what.
