Would you get discouraged if a State lottery game went months on end..

.. without being won?

Do you see yourself losing interest over time or feel that you motivated enough to dig in with the hopes of bagging it?

My question is based on the fact that the OCL labored on for years without a winner until recently.

    Yes, and more so if only one ticket benefited from the long wait.

      Discouraged? No. Why would anyone be discouraged. If a person truly understands the odds of these games, then there is no reason to be discouraged.

      I play all the jackpot games because somebody is going to win sometime. I know it most likely won't be me. But if I don't throw a buck in there, I absolutely know it won't be me.

      If you get discouraged playing the big games, better stick to Pick 3. Or scratchers. Or just don't play.

          What exactly does that mean? 

          Its a phrase no different than" It might be raining but my future is bright".. or " l was born with the birds singing in the trees"

            No, it doesn't bother me one bit.  It just means the jackpot is bigger than the previous draw and it will be eventually won.

                No, it doesn't upset me. It just means the jackpot is going to be bigger. More money. Smile

                  Exactly.

                   

                  The OCL has been won 11 times since it started in January 2007.  It's definitely going to go several months without being won when only 100-300k tickets are sold for each draw.

                      Do not play the lottery everyday.
