I just joined the Lottery Post and want to introduce myself.  I am really happy to find a place to correspond with people who share my hobby for playing the lottery.  Okay, fine, it's more than a hobby--it's an obsession!  Everyone else thinks I am wasting my money, that I am an addict, that I should wake up and stop living in a dream, etc.  The way I see it--I don't drink, I don't do drugs, I don't eat at fancy restaurants, I don't indulge in a lot of things, so the 50 bucks a week I spend on lottery is a treat for myself.  I've been reading through the forums these past couple of days and I enjoyed it so much, I've decided to join to be a part of the discussion!

My question is: Has anyone gotten really close to winning the jackpot?  My game of choice is the 2,000,000 Extravaganza scratcher here in California.  I was so close to winning it last month that it hurts just thinking about it.  I usually buy it weekly at a local liquor shop after work.  One week I was so tired from work that I decided to go home instead of stopping to buy my scratchers.  A few days later, I read in the newspaper that some guy had bought the winning ticket at that liquor shop!  Man, I'm still sore about that...

Anyone else came so close, but still so far away?

Best,

GinkoStinko

            And finally, no matter what, remember to buy your tickets because the very day you don't is when your number will hit--it seems you had a bit of the "LOTTERY KARMA" when another player won @ the same liquor store, it's a vaulable lessoned well learned.

                Hey GS, welcome!

                The way I see it, everyone that plays gets close to winning a jackpot. Lots of good stuff here at LP for the avid enthusiast in the games. I kind of doubt anyone winning a big jackpot will be too public about it, but you never know because it is the quest for many. You could spend your cash on worse things and if you really like the games, the resources here are top-notch. I like researching old threads and there are regular winners of lesser prizes, weekly. People are getting wins, so stick with the winners.

                  Welcome to Lottery Post, ginkostinko! See Ya!I haven't really been close to winning a jackpot, but I did miss out on a $5,000 win because I didn't play my regular numbers.
