You hear it all the time, someone who rarely buys a ticket wins a jackpot on their first attempt.

Could it be just beginners or newbie luck. What?

Do we build up a bad "karma" after playing for so many years without winning much of anything.  What?

It might also be that people who rarely play, aren't brainwashed yet to all the systems and methodology's that we are exposed to daily.

Perhaps the old timers just get burned out, and need some time away from everything, to re-energize and renew their excitement again. What?

    Naaaaaaaahhh...........I think there are more winners that play on a regular basis and win, than there are people who win on their very first try.....cause I think the media and everyone else focuses on that one fact when they hear about it....

      Karma would exist If it helped people who acted according to it's laws, but it doesn't because  even the very few really good people still get hurt. I'ts all about being at the right place at the right time and getting paid for it. Period.

        To briefly shine a little perspective, I have a friend who had a stroke two years ago. His wife left him and his son. Nice way to treat a family member in his most desperate time in life. If that wasn't bad enough, his doctors told him one of his kidneys developed cancer. He took care of that since, but he's still waiting on more tests to see if the cancer spread. He lives a meager life via disability and owes out of pocket costs not covered by Medicare, which he can't afford.

        Without depressing you anymore, I will sum it it up this way. Everyday that I wake up still in one piece, I've won the lottery !    No amount of money will save you from an uncurable ailment.

            In many circles peple who play the lottery are viewed as losers or sinners, and because of that, I think some people lie about how much they play.  I bet some of those "beginners" have actually spent hundreds or even thousands before they win.

                     I think people are encouraged to buy 1 ticket at the time, because from $1 buys most profits are made by lottery company, because those people practically never win.

                      If people who buys 1 ticket would win very often, this would  be discouraged by commercials and instead lottery company would allow people to join virtually into the groups while buying the tickets, and then share the win. Such option, I believe, does not exist, because groups are more successful at hitting wins. Not everyone can find a reliable group of willing payers, so I think it would be nice if such arrangement was created for the customers by lottery company, where one does not have to know the other players in a group, but the set up is run automatically, if people choose to join.
