for those who keep playing the lottery and lose on a regular basis who cant afford to play, we are retarded or that system will not allow us to win more often.they should produce more winners in scratch offs, numbers and the lottery in general.they should produce more winners and increase the odds if they want us to win. i have contacted people on line who win but when i play their numbers it dont come unless i drop it. i have prayed and had others to pray for things to improve in my favor and it dont work anymore. it seems like its more money and time and effort goes in to block some of us from winning.

    Mostly losing tickets is just the nature of the game. I only play with money I used to spend on smoking.

      If you lose a lot, you're in the majority. Only a very small percentage of players win anything significant.

      That's just how the game is supposed to work.

      The overwhelming majority of us are never going to win anything significant.

      You have to decide if you can live with that if you want to play the lottery.

            Everyone who plays dreams of winning.  When the lottery starts controlling your emotions, it's probably time to step back for awhile.

              It can be frustrating but stay positive & stay within a budget.

                  I Agree! Its difficult to accept losing as a means to winning.

                      Yes. I play for fun, and losing tickets are the stepping stones.

                          If losing tickets are stepping stones I could walk to Cripple Creek Colorado and never get my boots dirty.

                            You can stop feeling sorry for yourself, you're not alone.  Less than 3% of lottery lines played ever win anything including those that win a dollar or two.  If you want to know the exact figures for MM and PB, check the lottoreport website site for total sales and USAMega for actual number of winners.

                            States aren't into lotteries to just give money away, they like to make a nice profit too.  So take their suggestion and play responsible and if you can afford to lose, don't play.
