Have you had those " if only moments" when it comes to playing the lottery?

      Turned 18, wrote down a line for the mega millions (first or second time I'd have been playing.)

       

      Line was really long at the store, my friend wants to leave and I think "screw it I'm wasting a dollar anyway."

       

      Turns out my first 5 were all right, would have won 200K or 250K (I forgot which paid which at the time between PB and MM.)  Oh well, at that time I probably would have given it to my parents, since having that much cash myself fresh out of High School seems reckless...

        Not me. I never regret. On pick 3/4 games I always see a number drawn and want to do this  Bang Head because I was probably thinking of that number that day. Then the next time I think of a number I get all excited and play it. Guess what happens next - it does not come. Not even the next 10/20/50 draws. I learned early to keep moving no matter what happens.

        That money's gone fo ever

          Players who buy quick picks, play birthdays or the same set of numbers every time don't have those moments, it's only players who think they can pick the winning combination who have those moment.   But even they should have some rules that dictate their picks so there shouldn't be any regrets afterward.

            Very very ocasionally the exact number will flit through my head, i mean it comes so fast and leaves that it barely catches my attention. The last one I can think of was right when I was reaching up to push on the door to enter the lottery establishment. It was the winning pick three number and I thought hmm nevermind I'm playing these numbers I like. The problem is even if I "get" if you wanna say the message of the winning number through some kind of psychic connection or I see it here on someone else's list I do not recognize it as the winning number. So that is kind of my "if only" there are so many numbers and I look at so many combinations that I can come across the winner and pay it no notice. Frustrating.
