Would you be upset if you gave a lottery ticket as a gift and it was a million dollar winner?

I always buy the predictions I post, but I usually only post ten or less so they are very affordable to play.  Another member once asked me that question and I saw a member signature that mentioned his pet pee was some predictors post too close to the actual drawing time.  Apparently an hour before the drawing wasn't enough time for him.

How right you are RJOh, I am endeavoring to do just that, reduce the amount of numbers so it is affordable to play, and not need to take out a second mortgage on your home just to buy them all!! And an our before play time should be enough; unless you live far from your closest ticket agent.

forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

Now, does it count??

        I have written in previous post that I usually give lottery scratch off tickets as additional gift, as greeting card stuffers, to family and friends that attend the Christmas dinner. It is now expected by most of the people who attend. One recent year, I didn't bring tickets because I forgot to get them, and I had to work that day. A niece picked some up, but when I showed up they all wondered where my tickets were.

        There have been some winners of $100..$75...$50 and smaller. Family always offer to give me a share. But, I look at it as a gift that was fun for them to obtain. A party game with benefits.

        This year I did give out some Megamillion tickets to family only. I know that my family would share a jackpot prize with me if they hit as I will do with them WHEN I hit MegaMillion,  Powerball and Marylam\nd's MultiMatch. Thumbs Up

        Feeling,  PRICELESS!!!Banana

        Come on Jackpot!!!

          "I always buy the predictions I post, but I usually only post ten or less so they are very affordable to play. "

          That is extremely admirable. The only thing I can think of on thois board that would be more admirable is someone hitting a jackpot, being totally honest about where they got the numbers, and whetehr it was a personal method or a QP admitting that luck was still involved at those numbers being drawn for that drawing.

          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.

            I suppose anyone who wins a lottery jackpot is lucky (as most folks use the word) regardless of how they came up with the numbers but since I don't blame luck for all the times I've lost I wouldn't attribute a win to it either.

            Playing the predictions I post is purely for self interests, I would hate to post a winning prediction and not get a share of the winnings.  If I posted hundreds of them daily I probably  wouldn't play them all.

              There's no reason anyone should  blame (bad) luck when they lose. Losing  is the most likely outcome, so it should be the expected outcome. OTOH, if you do win, it's luck whether you give it credit or not.

                Sounds like you think of luck as a fair weather friend.  When times aren't so good he's no where to be found but once you're doing good he's right next to you taking credit for the good times.
