After reading through this thread, about 99% of it doesnt have much to do with lottery,lol.  People like to read about someone winning who did good with the money or something bad,sordid and scandalous. I hate reading about people who buy the huge mansion and fleet of fancy cars...that to me is just wasteful and BORING but to each his own. We've seen enough of that. A story on lottery players would have to have a different angle for me to read it. Something unique.   

You mean like a story about the "99%"?

    I'm not drunk, yet.

    No, there's a difference between what Jimmy writes and what I claim. It's one thing to play and hope for the best, like a miracle, or a really good system, but to declare it as an investment after knowing the 99.9% will never win is like purposely wearing blinders to make yourself feel better.

    What leaves me to believe you can only do one or the other? Read the above paragraph. Your downfall was when you used the word "Investment".

    This is fun Mr. Instigator, bring it on, you keep putting your foot deeper in your mouth with every key stroke. This is actually entertaining.

      Now you're talking.

      BTW, I'm running out napkins. When will the crying stop already?

      Fine, I'll give you a 5 star rating on your next thread. Happy?

      Geesh, I've met 6 year olds with more class.

        Hello,

        I am a writer with CNBC working on a story on state lotteries. I'm looking for frequent players who can tell me about the impact the lottery has had on their lives--positive or negative.

        Thanks so much,

        For most people, winning a lottery jackpot is a financial dream.
        Playing the lottery is a drain on your cash pocketbook with
        little or no chance of any positive windfall for the lottery player.
        But then again what is a dollar or two for a chance at financial
        immortality??

        The impact PB and MM has had on me is that I keep coming back
        to LOTTERYPOST to read threads like this!!

        Best Of Luck!

          You live inside a box only. Your box is lined with mirrors on all six sides inside of your box so that the only thing you ever see is yourself. Look outside your box sometime only. You might be surprised what you see.

          Too late for psychological mumbo jumbo.

          How can I possibly take you seriously after what you wrote in earlier posts about investment?

          A legend in his own mind. Get a grip. Your reality is not the same as everyone else's.

            Not to put down heavy players in the hopes of winning a JP. But in my experience here at the LP I've seen many, and I mean many people who truly believe they'll be the one of the 0.999% who win the JP.

            But logic and math dictate they won't win in their lifetime. Not to mention that they ALL can't be right and win the JP..lol

            It's an extremely rare event. Treat it as so.

            Sometimes I feel like it's futile for me to explain reality. But something keeps me going. I guess truth and reality always wins.

              Well just in case this is a negative slant article, I don't live in a van by the river (nor do any of the other LP members as far as I know), I have a good job/career, have a home paid off (many years early), never paid a bill late so my lottery money is from my Starbucks trips that I gave up a while ago now.  Could I afford to spend 10 times more?  Yes, but I won't.  It is about the game and strategy. I have learned alot on LP about strategy and feel I am well set to deal with a major win should I ever win. I also like learning about the stories of winners. It is a legitimate interest just like someone who is an amateur rock collector, golfer, etc. People from all walks of life play the game. I also would love to set up a charitable foundation and that would be my new job. 

              There are also some amazing statisticians on LP who do all types of analysis of numbers.

              Well you'll have plenty of time to Live in a van down by River when you're Living in a Van down by the River. Classic SNL.

                For someone who is a writer, he really should be asking followup questions and doing better due dilgence.

                        You'll quickly learn he's another one of LP's instigators. If you don't follow his way of life, you have flaws.

                        you guys remind me of when Peter fights that chicken LOL

                          Hello zac I play the daily three game daily I spend about $10.00 total for both midday and evening,I play only based on my dreams and let me tell you that 100% of the time my dream numbers show. Since i joined lottery post, I've seen some people begging for a hit or needing the money for rent, food, or etc.. and i think that money that your gambling with could be saved for your hard times, I also see daily posters win daily, and I think wow how did they know that number would hit, my experience is 50/50 as I would like to win more often the times I do win are pretty awesome, but as most people say play responsible, because the lottery game is definitely addicting it's like what recovering addicts say your always trying to get back to that first high, or in lottery talk ypur first win, I hope this brings some insight to you and what you were looking for. tre

                            Maybe he already has all he needs with the wealth of information expressed in this thread.

                              A good writer asks follow up questions and does not post a question and then disappear.  I would expect more from even a jr. high student.
