Which scenario "hurts" more to you?

NP/QP, so close yet off by a few numbers [ 12 ]  [42.86%]
NP/QP being so completely off it's trashed asap [ 7 ]  [25.00%]
Winner comes from the same shop you go to? [ 8 ]  [28.57%]
Getting only the powerball/megaball/etc. correct [ 1 ]  [3.57%]
Total Valid Votes [ 28 ]

Hey guys, just thinking about how much mental energy we invest into these games and I think it's natural to get your hopes up some days. So which scenario hurts the most?? It's obvious not winning the JP sucks, but I'm sure any of us would take match 4+1 at least!....yet, maybe some of us haven't even hit that. Its not really about greed, it's more about the game. It's about timing, hunches, luck, investments, people, location...so much has to be in your favor or it goes to the other guy/gal. So, for the "sore losers" LOL here which gets to you the most??? 

NP= natural pick (pick your own #s), but i'm sure most of you know that already! 

 

I vote "being completely off the mark" because I realize I wasted like $2-3 and it makes me feel like a dang fool lol.

 

And goodluck to everyone!!! Group Hug

    I voted the first option....it's a little more aggravating the closer your numbers were, but a miss is a miss.

    Close just doesn't count in lotto.

    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.

      I found out a lady had a $500 winning raffle one number off from mine and bought at the same store......AAAAAAARRRRRRRRGH.

        I don't mind being really close because then i know my system is working. it's just a matter of time ;)

            Voted the second option. I hate when none of my numbers match.

              13 times I have missed by one number.

              1 PB, 3 Ill little lotto, 1 wis Supercash, 1 Illinois Lotto,1 Wis Megabucks, 6 Wis Badger 5

              BIG Arghhhhhhh!

               

              But I had such good plans for the money..... I was SUPPOSED to win.

              Probably one of the most frustrating loses is Winners in NY or Ohio.  States that have so may repeat winners.

              Or, I was often chit chatting with this one lovely store clerk. And she sells a 2 1/2 million winner to SOMEBODY ELSE. I will NEVER let Amy forget about it. (nicely)

                I started trying to pick my own numbers because I felt like the QP's were always crap.  Now my picks are almost as disheartening as the QP's!

                    Before I moved to my new place the store I went to everyday and bought ten dollar tickets from and my pick3 and 4

                    from sold a $200,000 ticket in there. They had a copy of it sitting there up front. It was a real pisser since I had bought

                    many rolls in the same store. I just figure the dude was meant to have it.

                      I went with a winner being sold at the same store I go to.  Its never happened to me, but I always told myself that if someone one the JP at the same that I go to I would never play again.  My thinking is, lightening doesn't strike in the same place twice so to speak.

                            Last night my states pic 6 drew 2-14-15-22-25-35

                                                   i had,              3-13-18-25-28-32

                             but no matter, you either have em or you don't.

                            on poll i picked same store. no winner JP is up to 8.1 mils.

                            it tends to hit in this range, i take it.

                              If I pick my own numbers I blame my self.

                              But if I let the machine pick I can blame the machine. So I do QPs
