Since Mega Millions is now 75/15 I had the idea of creating an Excel spreadsheet that would randomly select 15 sets of 5 numbers that would use all 75 numbers (15 sets of 5 with no repeats), and each set of numbers would be giving 1 unique Mega Ball number, that way all 75 numbers and 15 Mega Ball numbers would be used. My fear would be posting my 15 selection prediction and then seeing that one of them would have won the jackpot if I had played....  Crying

    That's called "Predictor's Remorse Syndrome".

                    No, you don't have to be a US Citizen to collect, anyone can play and collect, you just have to pay the taxes on the winnings.

                        If you didn't think they would hit, why post them?   I alway play my predictions and I can count the times they hit with the fingers on one hand. Wink

                              The solution to the dillema IMHO, is to only post what you play.  That way you limit the remorse. 

                              I like to post winning lines on the boards that I insist on playing in real life, and not post losing ones, that I really know deep down that I should not even play at all.  (I keep those losses private.) That way I can stay in the top 50 on the prediction boards.

                              Even though there is no prize for being in the top ten, for a lottery player, on the Lottery Post Prediction Board.  LPPB, numero uno, that is the goal.  (At least for somebody who is "ACTUALLY" trying to win a JP.)

                               Maybe a free coffee mug for top predictor of the year, or perhaps a baseball cap? Todd are you watching?

                              You could always keep the other lines in your own "secret journal".  That way only you would know "if" your worst case scenario would have happened, if it was to happen, and you would only have to deal with your own embarrassment privately, without having to deal with it publicly, because all the while at the same time members on LP are congratulating you.

                              But dont fear about losing.  That only makes you lose more, and more faster.
