Do you have day's where the lottery numbers make you feel frustrated or cause confusion for you? I have taken time off from the lottery.. I have cursed at the lottery numbers.

 Some day's I like the lottery, and pat it on the back or give it a high five- when I have had success!  Other day's I  want to kick it to the curb.=when I have not felt as lucky.....It is a game after all, and only to be used for entertainment..Agree with stupid

    I feel both....

    Sometimes when I think I'm going to lose i win.....

    And when I know I'm going to win I lose.

    You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting. In what world could you possibly beat me?Patriot

      I feel neither, just keep pluggin away playing the numbers.

      When I lose, it's OK, I don't get too emotional about it, that's no fun!

        I feel that I'm a successful failure, except for those long pesky winning streaks.  Let It All Out

          I have studied the games I play and feel I know the types of combinations it takes to win.  I always pick those types of combinations and even though they've never won big I'm satisfied that I tried my best and that's all that counts as far as I'm concerned.

            I feel more frustrated when I play my long term numbers. I think its because I know my numbers and can tell without looking at the ticket after the draw if I have won or not. I rarely win anything on my numbers. At least with quick picks I have that little thrill that I could be a winner while I'm checking my tickets against the winning numbers.

            That money's gone fo ever

              While I pick my own numbers, I pick combinations which are within the parameters that fit the winning numbers using a RNG so I don't remember them.  I still have the thrill of not knowing if I've won until I check my play files with my data files after updating them with the latest winning combinations.

              I once make the mistake of putting the latest winning combination in a play file and had the thrill of thinking I had won a jackpot too which felt even better then when I actually matched 5of6 in the Ohio Super Lotto back in 2002.   I was disappointed after I double checked my results and figured out what happened but instead of be frustrated I just cherished the memory of the feelings I once had thinking I had won a jackpot and hope it happens for real one of these days.

                I think I'd get a small heart attack if I ever suspected even for a second that I won.

                To be honest, sometimes I wonder if the thrill of chasing the jackpot is more intoxicating than actually living large after winning. Its one for the philosophers, I tell'ya

                  well said.." I'm satisfied that I tried my best and that's all that counts as far as I'm concerned."

                   

                  That's how I feel about P3 even though it takes months at a time to get a hit.There's something addictive about handicapping numbers I know that much to be true even though I don't win as much as I should

                    I have good days and bad days, but like so many others, I feel there might be some type of code with lottery numbers, and I've put many hours into cracking this code.  I am very aware that a code may not even exist, but if...just IF,  could find a way to at least make my chances of predicting the next drawn numbers more probable, I'd be a very happy woman no doubt...I get very happy when I think I'm on to something and the next numbers drawn make me feel more positive about something I'd picked up on, but then the next draw will be completely off target with anything I'd come up with. It's days such as this when I will get very frustrated because I will feel I'm back to square one. I will walk away from it for awhile, but when it hits me to start again, I do. I can read something here on LP that will sometimes give me an idea of another route to research, so I'll sharpen my pencil and pull out my notebook full of notes and start again. I realize the lottery is supposed to be for entertainment, and I find the challenge of it entertaining at times, but more than any of this, I want to WIN!

                        There are tonnes of stories here on LP about different peoples strategies that won them big. Some winner happened to go to the store and accepted to buy a rejected ticket that was a previous customer's misprint and won big. Some winners get their winning numbers from fortune cookies. There was a winner from NY who won some jp. His strategy would be play for a while, numbers in whatever reciepts he happen to recieve from wherever he went. Some people play birthday numbers and win big. Some 11 random people in MA in October 2012 played retired RedSox players jersey numbers for Mass Cash and each hit for a cool $100,000. Some winner bought a quickpick that didn't win but he continued playing those numbers from that day and eventually won the jp.

                          ahh yes..I've read or heard about most of these stories.....I think i've tried them all in the past, but I'm too much of an analytical person, which is why cracking  the code is more my style. Big Smile

                            I have only been playing lottery since late spring-early summer, 2012. Prior to my Dh was the one to play--namely JP-power ball and Florida Lotto games.  And I took it up in his stead--after much convincing on his part-- because he went to work overseas.  He was a QP player, and I thought to myself, there has got to be a better way to do this. LOL. And while we have not won a JP, I think I have actually had more success picking our own numbers, after much research here and elsewhere, then he had in all the yrs he had played.  I have picked 3 numbers at least four times in PB this yr since I started to play.  And I have gotten 4 numbers 3 times in a pick 5 game we have in Florida this yr (F-5 is actually my game, I play the other to humor DH=).  And I don’t use any one system, but a combination of. 

                            Being new to it, I have yet to feel the frustration of non success.  I figure like anything, one has to pay ones dues.  I do not know that I expect to win a JP, either, but I know you can not win if you do not play.  And to be fair, I also cover all bases.  By that I mean I play a regular set of numbers for each game we play every week, and buy 1QP in honor of my DH,  as well as my own creations.  Because initially it was more of a challenge to prove to my Dh that you could do better if you picked your own numbers ( not to open any debate on this issue). Thus far, I am winning though. LOL   So guess you could say, i have found an aside that brings me a bit of pleasure other than the JP.  Lastly whether you pick you own numbers or do QPs, I am still convinced it is 99% Luck and 1% Perspiration, no matter how hard you work on cracking the codes.  But do like the math of it, and with it the idea of turning possibilities into probabilities =)  Happy Lottering.
