I have been thinking about this for some time and I keep coming back to the same point full circle over the lottery, particularly jackpot games ie;powerball,megamillions,your states pick 6 lotto, etc. There are so many people trying to 'figure' it all out. Some people use mathematical formulas, some use astrology, some use a particular 'system' and other use dream numbers... then there are those that just pick numbers randomly or use 'quick pick' tickets or pick their birthdays or use several of their 'favorite' numbers and 'wheel' them.
What 'IF' the lottery is really random ?? No rhyme or reason behind it. We all know the lottery changes their machines and number balls frequently. Is there really such thing as luck ??
Now I know some of you reading this may be thinking 'hey..this guy has lost all hope of winning' ... but I'm here to say.. what if all these drawings are completely random ? So many people here pour in countless of hours trying to create a 'system' or try to find a 'trend' in the numbers. If there was a trend, dont you think the lottery commision would make sure those machines and number balls were changed out right away?
It comes down to this... Are we all just BS'ing ourselves thinking we have some sort of 'edge' over picking the numbers correctly. When do we say to ourselves ' Lets be realistic , there is no 'proven' way to pick the numbers correctly using any of the above methods. ' I dont want this message to come off as depressing or make you lose hope or anything like that. I just want to hear your thoughts on this and see what others have to say. Thank you for your time reading this.
As you all know, the Powerball jackpot for this Wednesday is 245 million dollars. How many of you plan to play using a 'system' or just wing it and randomly pick your numbers? Think about it and open your mind.
Don't Play more, Play Smarter!
