This has happened in other games to me as well...it is sometimes good to sit back and take a break from all the games then re focus! Good luck C2

    Last night my wife and I wheeled a series of numbers, we were going to run down to the local c-store and make the purchase, we printed our numbers off, but got busy and before we knew it, it was late night.    We did not go.    This morning I woke up and while having my coffee I picked up the sheet of paper with our printed numbers on it and went to the Florida lottery website.   The third line down of our series of wheeled numbers was 5/5 of the Florida Fantasy 5 game. . .we had won!     I woke my wife up and told her, she felt sick also, now I'm depressed and just feel sick to my stomach.   

     

    Have any of you guys ever done anything similiar?    We play 2 or 3 times a week (15 to 20 dollars at a time), but now I don't even feel like fooling with it anymore - I feel I've missed my chance, because of laziness and a TV show.   

     

    Sad

    Although I've never missed winning the jackpot by not playing, I have missed a chance of winning the 2nd prizes several times.  More often than not when I didn't play I saved the money I would have lost had I played.  I usually play a different set of combinations every time I play so I expect that will happen again. 

    If you had a special set of combinations you played every time I suppose you might feel a little sick because once a set of numbers hit, they're not likely to repeat for a long time.  Just check any lottery that has been around for a while to see how many combinations ever repeated, you would be lucky to find five in 10 years.  Even W.Va Cash25 lottery which is a 6/25 game with less than 180,000 possible combinations and over 2800 drawings in almost 20 years have very few combinations of sixes to repeat. (A list of previous winners is a good list of what not to play)

      Yep. Been there, done that. Life goes on. You're smarter now and you learned one thing. The universe really does want you to win! So don't give up. Retreat and regroup! LOL

        Well stuff like that had happened to me before years ago, when i was like 21 or 22 years old like 3 times...But i never missed it and it was like a scratch i don't know if it was because i was young....But i really felt it like 3 1/2 years ago [even though this is different], but I was getting a disability from the military and i had just gotten 2,200 dollars a month every month for my disabiltiy here in Panama...For some reason i had to see a special doctor and explain to him my condition...and i did but the last question he asked me was what was i doing with the money and i told him the truth i told him that i was saving money to buy my mother a house what i didnt tell him  is that i was going to live in that house and that the house cost between 35K - 40,000 dollars...For some reason you are not allow to do that and they cut back my disability, now i am getting 900 dollars a month...It hurts, sometimes i think about it and it hurts, not physically but mentally...and sometimes it feels as though that doctor hurt me physicaly...If i was getting paid 2,200 a month i could had move in with my dad for 2 years and save the 2 years worth and have the house in 2 years....That's why i'll like to tell Americans if you are making 5,000 dollars a month in your job save 1,000 every month because you never know...

        And the worse of this disability is that you can't get a job....And i can't pay a monthly bill to get the house because my disability is not something PERMANENT, anytime they can take it away from me...And you know what was my tactic and i would have felt very good had this happened...They should had let me get the 2,200 a month for 4 years and then after that if they felt they wanted to take it away from me they could had because i would had saved money to buy a house and live with my mother...worse case scenario, i would had had a house and get paid 900 dollars a month which is not bad...And what is shameful is that right now i just turn 32 and i live with my dad without a house...

        but i am not too mad because had this not happened i wouldn't have come up with the ideas and systems that i thought about and have in my blogs...

        This is why i want the lottery to pay people a monthly salary for life and not give them a lump sum...

        But in a way it makes me feel like i am in the army and if you really look at it is like been in a slight army in combat...

        anyways i hope you recover from this....

        The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨

          I always run a Lotto Club for the past 5 years and sometimes I get so frustrated with members that I have to stop for a while and take a break... so guess what... we would have won the Jackpot 4 times in the last 5 years! pretty darn frustrating but such is life or people, I guess... I put in a ridiculous amount of time studying lotto numbers but how do you convince people to stick is beyond me! and even if I told them that we will win, they don`t beleive and get bored... oh well, such is life,I guess... just have to keep trying,huh?

            Lotto clubs are suppose to be a cheap way for individuals to participate in a lottery as a group.  If members got tired of paying then it must not have been cheap enough.  You shouldn't ask people to join that aren't willing to pay over a long period of time.

              I have missed out on the pick 5 in my state.  The date was Oct, 31, 2008.  I could have won the $500,000 jackpot.  The numbers that hit were ones I play on a regular basis.  I had taken my children to a Halloween carnival in our hometown and I being pressed fot time, I said to myself I'll play next time when it would not have taken but a minute to run my ticket.  Follow your first mind.

              Life, love, family Love

                Just know you hit it once, keep doing what you have been doing and it will come around again.

                  This has never happened to me but.....wow!  I would be sick to my stomach too!  Hang in there though and keep plugging along!  This didn't happen to a couple of friends of mine once a few years ago.
