lead you to win the Lotto? When ever Lotto winner come out, they always say they know they would win someday. I am positively thinking that I will win California Super Lotto or Mega Million this year!

    One of my all time favorite song. Funny thing is that I always dream of playing  this song when I am on my way on picking up the winning lotto check.

      I don't know if it helps...but it beats thinking negative and feeling bad. LOL

      You should take time out your day and meditate on winning and how good it will feel. Thumbs Up

      X2, Thrust. Positive thinking fortifies a player's drive and persistence. There was a time when I'd get so down on myself for losing but, it was for no good reason at all. I have to lose in order to win...just the nature of the game. We may not be able to control the outcome of the draw but, we CAN control how we feel.

        Lucky Loser,

        You make a good point but if we're talking lotto anyone who gets down because of losing shouldn't be playing lotto.

        In all forms of gambling the player is suppossed to lose. In lotto that is on steroids times millions.

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

        Lep

        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.

          Very good point, 'Toss, and I definitely agree. If a person can't handle losing then they shouldn't be in this game at all because they will have to lose. Hey, I had to get over it and it took me a long time...especially after taking a huge hit of $500-$600 as I use to play. I figured playing a ton of numbers was the way, and, it worked flawlessly until I'd lose.

          I like the consistence but, a hit would put me (2) wins behind the game because I spent $600 to make the $900 netting a $300 profit. As you can see, the profit was "upside down" and costed me big time with a loss. Hey, we all live and learn in this thing. If I ever get to where I can't learn, please shoot me.LOL Good post.

            I'm with you Stack4-- Especially on SLP.  Even though I dont have that same special feeling as I do for Fantasy, I see it as  SOMEBODY HAS TO WIN. It might as well be me.  The only people who are definately NOT going to win are the people who didnt buy a ticket.  I will never win Mega Millions or pick 3 or pick 4 because I don't play it.  But I have just a much chance (not rights) to win  a lottery jackpot as anyone else. 

            Unless you are at the casino where the owners will now say that a slot mallfunctioned when someone hit the jackpot,  then, you have the same chance as anyone else who plays.

            When Ohio first came out with the Buckeye 5 game (5/37), I was positive I would hit a $100,000 jackpot but never did though I managed to hit quite a few 4 out of 5 matches. I was sort of disappointed when I cashed my first 4 match ticket because the difference between matching one more number was $99,750. But since I'd already had that "what if" feeling when I matched 5 out of 6 on a $40 million Ohio Lotto jackpot, I wasn't that disappointed.

            Whether we play pick-3, Pick-5, MM or PB we should leave it at "hoping to win" rather than "expecting to win" or we're going to experience many disappointments.

            And before anybody thinks I'm being cynical believing we can't win, I worked with a guy that won $100,000 by picking the numbers playing Buckeye 5, two other guys that split $20 million and another winning $2 million playing the Ohio Lotto using QPs. So it is possible!

                I agree with you on the last part lucky Loser "We CAN control how we feel" One mistake people make is think that the lottery owes you money, that thinking messes with your mind and does not let you make better decisions or picking the next numbers.
