I usually feel sick to my stomach and pissed off when I hear about winners of major jackpots Bash

I have been playing the big jackpot games for a while now so no I do not get mad.  I have mellowed out over the years of playing so I figure my energy is better spent focusing my time on the next big jackpot coming and seeing if I can win that one.  Not worrying about the one just won.-weshar75

    I don't get angry, but I do admit to being a little disappointed the JP didn't roll over.  I've never known anyone (personally) who won, but I always hope that whoever wins really needs it and/or will do some good with it and not squander their money.

          No. Winning the lottery is so hard that it's like catching a touchdown in Super Bowl to win the championship. You are stunned that they could do it and hope you get your chance. Thumbs Up

          That money's gone fo ever

            Nah...what's there to get mad about? You knew going in that your chances of being struck by lightning are much better.

                Not a problem what happens while I'm waiting my turn. 

                A little disappointed when I have too much money on it.

                    I agree!  I am usually more disappointed that the jackpot is reset and we start all over!

                      ABSOLUTELY NOT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  And it even gives me a greater feeling of accomplishment when I hear of someone who developed a SYSTEM to defeat the astronomical odds against winning.

                      Sometimes it's extremely difficult if not practically impossible to get people to disregard the smoke and mirrors.  Instead, they seem to enjoy the ride down the proverbial Garden Path....... helpless to extricate themselves from being totally deceived by known forces in their midst who would argue that they have come here for the sole purpose of helping people.......str8ca$hhomie

                        Point taken Lone Star- but what's the point in it rolling over when it turns out that you not the eventual winner, still disappointed?

                          Once a Jackpot is won, I focus on the next one. God blessed them with there's. I am happy for them. I look at it this way, I could be next. Next time you feel this badly about some else good luck, Pray for Guidance & take some Tums

                            Good point. I never get mad. I just focus on the next draw. There is always another draw, another chance.

                            Trust me...I want and need to win a jackpot. Especially with how work is going right now. I'm so sick of my job I can't stand it and I see no alternative.

                            So, I look forward to every draw, but always remember the odds and it is a game.

                            CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

                              I only get mad when my numbers are off by one. Don't know how they do it but it happens a lot.
