Wasn't reprimanding, just asking his own opinion/answer to his own question. Who are you, the buddy police?

Sorry, but I disagree. People care more about the end result than the opportunity. Otherwise they wouldn't play. If a lottery player never wins anything, not even a lower prize, do you seriously believe they will keep playing? Nope. Winning is what keeps them coming back. Same with casinos. There is no excitement, no return customer if they never win. They may enjoy trying to win, but that breaks down eventually—  winning is what motivates most. You seem to be confusing people who don't really care much about the lottery to those who are active players.

LOL Like I said, you don't understand. You're not a gambler and you don't understand the business.

So you go to a casino business and you pay for your product or service, pay in either table fees or rake or house edge, what is the product or service being offered to you? Winning? Green laugh

The product is the action, the gaming. Period.

    I gamble. If I go to a casino, I go to win. If I have a good time in between, then great. If I'm not winning, I am not having a good time. I'm pretty sure most anyone who goes feels the same way (based on elevator conversations with losers). Who goes just for the action? Maybe you. Sounds like you are a sore loser and are trying to justify "gaming" as anything other than wagering with the intent of winning.

    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?

      Oh LottoMetro, you only demonstrate your ignorance, again. You don't understand why people play.

      This may be why you're here trying to save people, trying to preach to people of the futility of playing lottery games where they have a negative expectation, yada yada. Such a broken record.

      For the viewing audience:

      LottoMetro believes he's smarter than everyone else because he only plays MM/PB when there is a positive expectation, and then only spends a dollar. LottoMetro always believes he's the smartest person in the room, and certainly smarter than anyone on Lotterypost. And LottoMetro is trying to tell you how dumb you are by playing games with less expected value like pick 3 compared to higher payout games like scratch games. LottoMetro wants to be your nanny and save you from making this fatal mistake in life.

      There are a few casino games with a small enough house edge for a skilled player to gain an advantage, an advantage player. But with the lottery, the house edge is so large, that there is no advantage play in all but a few rare circumstances. People don't play the lottery because they have an advantage, they play for the chance to win, knowing the odds are against them, knowing the house has the edge. They know it and they don't need LottoMetro to tell them how to spend their hard earned money or which games to play to be as smart as LottoMetro.

      Get it?

            I wouldn't ever buy a lottery ticket if I didn't I had a chance to win.

              yeah  exactly, no one buys em cuz they think the schools need more funding, or sports clubs need a new baseball.   we look at the risk/reward. as long as the costs stay down. and the rewards are so exceptional. its worth throwing away that buck/ $2 / $10  . what ever our poison is.

                      You dont have to gang up on me because I missed a spelling mistake guys; I'm supposed to be the Goon. I think its a good opportunity to play a few bucks on the lotto on the regular. If you win the JP you'll never have to work again. I would lay in bed every morning and just lay there because I couldBed

                            Hello noise-gate,

                            Yes, I do see myself winning. As a matter of fact, I'll even dare to be more blasphemous and say I see myself winning the Lottery at least 3 or more times. I know, I know...It sounds crazy! LOL. But I'm confident it's doable, especially if one can "bend the odds". I call it Looking For Neo.

                            If it's true that it's been done in the pick 3/4, then there's no excellent reason why it can't be done in the pick 5 and jackpot games, despite odds to the contrary. And if think I can do it, then I sincerely believe everyone has it within them to do it too. So in parting, I pray that we all Crack. LOL. Crack open as far as we can to bring forth a little more of what often lies partially untapped and half-buried within. Here's to Looking for Neo...

                            May your numbers be true this day,

                            Kola

                            Our 2nd class in Pick 3 Lore was Space-Timing The Next Draw and we found the Lottery LoreKeeper, Tatiana, staring through her telescope, while we covertly giggled about what does Planet X have to do with what my next draw is? The sleuthy sage quietly intoned, "It is known that when the light(information) from such a distant object reaches our eyes, we are seeing the object as it was in the past & not as it appears Now in the present. Isn't this true for all things, especially numbers, that were drawn years, months, weeks or even just a day in the past? To accurately find the next draw, use the Law of Now(Tatiana's Pillar)". We never giggled again.

                              Looking for Neo huh? Fantasy aside, anything is possible,  at least l believe.  How does explain how a person take Gloria * with permission,  cuts in line in FL and wins a massive JP?
                              Chance is a Great thing, one day you could be poor as a church mouse and in a matter of minutes,  you could be transformed into someone whose rubbing shoulders with A listers.

                              * As for looking for Neo, it could be the follow up to the last Matrix movie...question is" did Neo perish or was he reborn "..in a similar way to the Oracle? What's real- Morpheus did ask " do you think that's air you breathing? "
                              Be well.
