If someone has bad luck does that mean they will never have a chance to win the lottery?

Hi,

I've just been wondering if someone like myself who has bad luck will never have a chance to win the lottery.  For instance I've been the only one in my company who has consistenly had my paycheck wrong for the last two months. Everytime I go out to eat I either get the wrong thing, or my food is ice cold or I find something in my food. When I have had surgeries in the past things have gone wrong or my surgeon wasn't able to do a good job.  I still play the lottery but luck has never been a word one would associate with myself. Realize the lottery is random but is it random for someone with bad luck like myself?

    Yes. You will never have a chance to win the lottery.

    Have you considered the casinos? Wink

      Hi mcginnin56,

      I've never been to a casino but doubt my luck would change there either.

          Wow as bad as your luck has been there is worse things that could have happened to you like.......instead of getting a paycheck that was wrong...you just plain got fired...going out to eat and getting food poisioning bad enough to hospitalize you........and surgery...wow what can go wrong there....umm death?....So you're not as unlucky as you think...I'd keep playing, but don't spent the bill money on tickets LOL....

            Many stories in the LP news section in the past of people who were on their last dime and won big time. The most recent one i remember is the guy who was about to lose his house and won millions.

                  Good luck piggybacks on bad luck. How many stories are on LP how individuals won the lottery by deciding to take a mistake ticket? Just last friday I was at the store and had intended to buy one Mega Millions and one Mega Bucks quick pick. For unknown reasons I said "gimme a PB & MM quick pick" and as soon as the ticket got printed I realized it was a mistake. But I took it anyways and funny thing is I won $4 on it o_O

                    ever think that maybe you have been saving up all your good luck for a big lottery win?

                      Shyguitar,

                      You'll find some interesting hits if you 'Google' "Ways to change your luck".

                      Lep

                      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.

                        Ok, now how is that YOUR badluck? It sounds like someone else is incompetent who does the forms.

                        Once when I was in my mid/late 20's, I worked for a very large entity. I was sent on business/a detail to a regional office for a month to help them out.  When I returned, my paychecks stopped. Someone had made some misplaced keystoke and listed me as retired. lol  It went on for weeks, until our sr. human resource person dragged me with her to payroll and screamed at them "does this girl look to you like she is retired??!!"

                        But that was their error, not my bad luck. Do you do proper research for surgeons, etc? If I found something in my food, their corporate office and their facebook website would hear about it. It all depends on whether you view yourself as a victim being acted on by "forces" or you can control your life for most things.

                          LOL, that reminds me of a story Richard Pryor told.

                          He said they went over to his mamaw's house for Thanksgiving dinner and she was real old and he noticed something different in the stuffing and asked his mamaw what it was and she said it was almonds. Richard said it didn't look like almonds. His mama told him to just be quiet and eat it. And Richard responded that some of his almonds had legs and they was walkin' around.

                              Some people have worse luck after winning the lottery.
