Don't feel bad. One time I picked numbers, filled out the playslip, and was on my way to meet a girl when I decided to skip buying tickets so I wouldn't be late. Girl really didn't appreciate seeing me so imagine my pain as I sat in the restuarant and watched my winning numbers being displayed on the television.
If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?
