        Getting 4 numbers in the office pool twice keeps me playing.  Will I probably win? No. 

        Will I go broke trying? No.  So I will continue to try in the off chance my/pool's day comes.

            I hope California does NOT get the Powerball game.  In fact, maybe I'll write to various state leaders and the lotto board asking them NOT to include it.  What happens is, with these "larger" games, the ones which have odds over 175 Million to 1 (!), people tend to play them when the jackpots grow very large.  The problem is that, with 175 Million to 1 (!) odds, you have virtually no chance of winning them.  Puke

            When people play these long odds games, they siphon off the jackpot from California's regular Super Lotto game.

            At least if you play $10 in the California Super Lotto game, the odds drop down to 4.5 Million to 1(!).  Roll Eyes

              Is anyone like me, where I will never use mega millions or powerball random number generator? If my numbers come up in one of those, I'll feel like it will never happen again.

                Yes, I truly believe my chosen numbers will eventually hit, when exactly--gee whiz I hope very, very soon.  However, I must admit, it's getting very frustrating to keep winning "free replays" and 2 numbers all the time..just this morning I found out the 7-11 where I had previously bought several tickets ago in Huntington Beach, just had a winning ticket--Fantasy 5 for all 5 numbers on 11/2/09 or 11/3/09 for over $27,000; talk about buying your tickets on the wrong day!!Unhappy  Like I said previously befofe, it's all about the luck of the draw, sheer luck and timing--PLUS A WHOLE LOT OF PATIENCEHurray!

                GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF THE LP FAMILY IN WINNING!!Banana

                  My life is going so bad right now I don't believe in anything anymore.

                  Please don't stop believing--it is the only thing to hang on to no matter what life situations throw your way..everyone has experience negative or bad things in life..just keep your head high and pray--GOD BLESS YOU.Hurray!

                    I believe I will win tonight. 

                     

                    Good luck to all.

                    The winning combination is printed on every playslip, you just have to fill in the right boxes.  Simple, Huh??

                      Nice post!

                      I dont ussually have a gut feeling I will win. I just think I have the same chance of winning as anyone else, including the last winners. Like someone above said I won´t get broke playing, and the chances of winning are there so why not do it?

                        There are actually times when my "gut feeling" is stronger than other weeks.  I haven't played the lottery in months, but on Saturday night, I told my husband to stop off and get 1 PB QP.  He did and we actually got 2 numbers. Granted, we didn't get the powerball (were off by 4 numbers), but it was a little inspiring to actually see that I got 2 numbers!

                        Within the last few days, I have just "felt" like I was going to win the PB coming up.  I know the jackpot isn't huge and that's okay with me.  My husband would probably keep his job, but it would be enough to live comfortably the rest of our lives. 

                        I have always felt like I was going to win the PB, but there are times when it does get discouraging and I don't play.  I guess I go in streaks.

                        Lately, my feeling is stronger and I definitely plan on playing for these next 2 weeks!

                          My life is going so bad right now I don't believe in anything anymore.

                          I have reverted back into believing in Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny.
