Does a JP winner from your State enhance your motivation to continue or not at all?

Perhaps the Water-Cooler talk as of late had been " Its always That State that wins"- but if suddenly a fellow State residence bags the big one, do you say ".. well its about time" with a huge grin on your face. Maybe even thinking- " hey my gut feeling tells me ...l'm next!!

    Not really.

    What motivates me to keep going is finding a way to consistently get most and all the winning numbers within a reasonable set of numbers with one correct power/key number.

      Good for you LB- l put this out there because when l read that my State had it's first PB winner the following day  l observed an elderly couple voice their opinion on being energized over that fact.
      Then last night 2nd place on the MM went to a winner from here as well. Things are looking up....l think.

        I am not motivated more when locals hit the PB or MM because the odds are too astronomical to make me excited. I do have a teeny weeny amount of hope but it is not based on locals winning. It is based on the fact that I just need to be in it to win it. On Mass Cash (5/35) I am excited by locals winning. There is a winner every other day and that is enough to excite, no?

        That money's gone fo ever

            Well sort of...I pay attention to the 2nd place prizes and my state goes on a roll on occasion so I make sure I play then and spend some extra time picking my numbers. Before that couple going through the Richmond airport won the big JP, VA had a big roll week after week on 2nd place finishes (might have been for both MM and PB). I always think in terms of winning the 2nd place win anyway.

              No, because 99.9% of the people who play for a JP win won't win in their lifetime. Once you realize this, your next losing ticket won't be such a let down.
