Does anyone ever get extremely angry when they lose?

When I go and and drop $10 or $20 dollars each time I'm expecting a zero return. Heck sometimes my tickets pile up for a few months before I check them so if I actually win something its a nice surprise

    I certainly do.  When I lose, I just see red & I can feel my blood start to boil.  Especially when I see how easy it is for others to win!

    Sometimes I just want to go into a rage & break something, but I eventually calm down.

    Why not ask some of these players you're seeing win so easily what they are doing different than you.  Could be they have played for years and finally got lucky or they spend a lot more on tickets than you. 

    Last year I matched four with MM and the clerk got excited and said I had the biggest winners she had ever cash since she started working there six months earlier.  That surprised me because they sold a lot of tickets and I figured that big winners were coming in all the time.

     * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

          Do your eyes bulge?

          Eyebrows wrinkled?

          Veins popping out of the side of your head?

          Rage, Agony, and determination to do something involving physical harm to furniture, appliances, window fixtures, and other material readily available, like hand held objects to be thrown missile-like?

          Stop taking Previda and consult your doctor. Symptoms include headache, sleeplessness, dizziness, fatigue, frequent trips to the restroom, cramps, vomiting, seizures, and Anaphylactic shock !

          Seek immediate medical attention if your election lasts longer than 4 months.

              As mightwin said, expect zero return

              Once a player makes a bet on anything, whether it's $1 on a lotto ticket or a 'nickel' ($500) or a 'dime' ($1,000) on a sporting event the only practical approach is to consider that money already gone. Anything that comes back is pure gravy.

              Anyone who loses and wants their money back has no business playing in the first place.

              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 only get angry when STRANGE things happen that REALLY shouldn't.  For example I am after a number and play it for a while, and the ONE time I am UNABLE to get tickets (sick/busy) it comes out!!!! The first time this happened years ago I didn't think ANYTHING of it.  But it has happened SOOOOO many times now its NOT funny anymore - its sickening. 

                  HOW is it possible that in the last couple of months the very draw I miss/stop playing something it comes out ---- its not.  The odds are impossible. 

                  THAT makes me ANGRY! Mad

                        you cant stop the rain by complaining.

                        no i dont get angry,   once when i had ea number 1 off the winner  i was more bemuzed than angry. then i realized that its 64 times more likely to happen.

                        yopu cant get anry at what you cant control. its a pointless waste of energy.  complain about taxes instead.

                            I don't get mad when I lose and it's a good thing cuz when I get mad I like to grab the nearest person (male) of my least favorite political party and lift them up off the ground and shake 'em like a rag doll.

                            And I understand that's against the law in some areas.
