"Someone" told you that you never going to win?
My Answer: No.

    Nah.

    I'm always swingin' for the fences.

    That's how I roll.

    I'd rather burn out than fade away.

      How in the world would they know you're not ever going to win? No one can predict the future with 100 percent certainty.

        Exactly, its like someone telling a woman who wants children she'll never have kids after a couple miscarriages. I know  2 who were told that they wouldnt, they refused to stop trying, one has 3 kids now and the other has one son which is what she wanted. So they kept trying for what they wanted, so so will I

              No, I wouldn't quit.  Such people have slave souls, live in negativity, and have no dreams.  You can't win if you don't play.  By the way I just recouped 2 Dallas.  Megaball and a numba.  Well maybe one Dalla.  Two more chances at freedom.  I refuse to buy that megaplier deal.  No don't push it, I ain't doing it.

                My Answer: No.

                Only if it was the Lottery Fairie herself, then I'd try to strike a deal to never play a jackpot game but hit occassional Pick 3s and 4s.

                Scared

                Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                Lep

                There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                  That's why I don't mess with the P3 and P4 games. I like swingin' for the fences on the jackpot games.

                    No. It's like listening to some wacko telling me the end of the world is imminent due to global warming.

                      Or someone had in their possession the Palantir of Orthanc- then maybe l " might" consider working something out to my advantage.

                          Yep- can one imagine when the Wright brothers suggested" flying this object" people probably thought they were nuts..
                          There are just too many folk out there telling people to " not try because you will come off looking foolish".
                          Can one imagine Gloria from Florida thinking " l know lm wasting my time l might as well not ask this fine lady if l can cut in line to purchase a ticket"!!

                              I have not listened to wackos for 17 years going on 18 years so why start now besides I spend less than $100 on lotto a month.  So hopefully I hit that million dollar win soon.-weshar75
