I've always wondered how important the elusive dream of winning the JP has an affect on folks. I want you to take your time reading the selections.

Don't worry, be honest and remember, other than your reputation here on the LP, your anonymity will serve you just fine in the real world from those close to you, unless you've disclosed your inner feelings to them.....

 

Personally, i think this venue made possible by Todd is so invigorating that, in by itself, information and entertainment converge so beautifully, and that's why the LP is number one on the net.

However, some may be on the cusp of delusion and grandeur. The illusion of entitlement because they planned and invested hard money. Actually the topic at hand can go much deeper on level never seen. Some may feel they deserve to win. But life doesen't work that way.

Bottom line. Is it a hobby or  does it rule your world?

 Thanks for reading this nonsense....lol

    Oh, I'm definitely gonna win . No ifs ands or buts about it. Take it to the bank. Done deal. Without a doubt. For sure. Absolutely. Positively. Undeniably. Indubitably.

    In fact, I'm going to win the Mega on Tuesday and the Powerball on Wednesday.

    Then I'm going to win the Mega again on Friday and the Powerball again on Saturday.

    I accept the fact that I will probably be banned from playing the lottery after that.

    But by then I will already have my own chain of liquor stores conveniently located all across the country.

    I like to travel.

        I view playing the lottery as a hobbie. I try to think positive and hope that I will win one day.

          Any approach to the lottery (Jackpot games) other than throwing a buck or two at a dream is economic suicide.

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

            till i find a system that will get me closer to realizing the dream of hitting the jackpot, its just a buck here and there basickly a dollar and a dream.no hard feelings win or loose: will not make or break me.

              I agree with you rdgnr, but I could do without the liquor stores. Smile  I only need to win the state lottery and I will leave the Powerball and Mega Millions to you!  I already have a contingency plan in place and part of that plan is to remain anyomous. (Don't need another rags to riches back to rags story) Then I will politely tell my boss to kiss my @ss! I never did feel like I had a gambling problem, The only problem I have is when I lose. You know what they say you have to be "in it to win it!"

                I've got a significant gambling problem. I called the lottery's gambling hotline, and they were absolutely no help at all. In fact, they told me that I'm supposed to lose most of the time.

                      I love working my numbers and it rules my world because I am always talking about the lottery and spend all of my free time thinking and reworking my numbers during my free time. I figure if I am to be obsessed with something, it should be something that I can benefit from. Hence I spend most of my time playing on paper and not using my gambling fund until the sun-moon-stars-and all the planets arrange themselves into the proper alignment.

                          Im with you Dollar,

                          I truly think that I'll win.  To me there's no point in playing if I don't think i'll win.  Is like "okay, let me give this convenience store some money every few days for fun."  I play the same set on both Super and Fantasy.  The numbers will hit one day.  Lets just hope I will live long enough to benefit.  I think I'm on  a losing streak right now.  I used to win $15 every now and again but even my bonus number hasnt hit in months.  But that in no way means I will stop playing my picks.  The day  I decide it will never happen is the day I stop playing all together.    I feel confident in my picks right now and truly feel they will hit.
