Winners are not cursed in any way because they've won.

The curse of "Can't win" is real however.

    Huh?  Winners were at one point losers until they won. The curse factor does not apply if those folk & future lottery players became winners.

    Your point is moot!

      The real curse is on the players who play the same jackpot game numbers for months or even years, but forget to play on the night those numbers are drawn. Don't know if was a curse, but there was a top 100 LP poster who played multi draw, didn't renew it, the numbers hit the very next drawing, and they blamed the clerk.

          If you BELIEVE this, you won't win !!! So, Get Over It !!! Stop Wasting your money on JP games, which you probably won't win !!!  Play the smaller games with Progressive Wagering, which you CAN win !!!

            You obviously feel having an opportunity to buy a lottery ticket is a curse because you're lucky if you win.   There are people who feel the same about having a chance to get a good education and a good job because they have to study and be willing to work.

             * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

              I wouldn't use the word "curse". There are many bad events that you will probably never encounter which could leave you maimed, or dead. We take our uneventful lives for granted, not realizing how many bullets we dodge on a daily basis.

              Only 2% of the world population are super rich, so don't think it's easy to attain. Good health is more important than all the gold in the world because If you're lying in the Intensive care unit with un-repairable bodily damage or no cure to some disease, no amount of wealth will help you. It may ease your pain with EXTRA TLC, "top of the line" care, but that's it. 

              You could,

              Get robbed

              Get murdered

              get raped

              Lose your house (fire or high expense)

              Hit by a bus

              Car accident

              Born in North korea

              Food poisoning

              Cancer

              Mental breakdown/Depression

              Live in the worst poverty

              Live in mediocre poverty

              The list can go on. You get the idea. Next time you prevent yourself from falling just when you're about to lose grip on a slippery floor, potentially hitting your head on a sharp object on the way down, think how you won a second tier prize in life extension, lol, another free pass, or a JP where the sharp object could split your head open.

              Ask Dr Atkins' family. His death wasn't caused by too much protein and fat intake in his famous diet, but because he slipped on ice and hit his head on ice when he was leaving his house.

               

              Always thank the day that you're six feet above ground. If the ground wasn't so dirty, I'd kiss it everyday. Green laugh

                  I guess it's in the way you look at things. I think the fact that you have enough residual income to religiously throw money at a game where the odds of winning are over 100 million to 1 is a blessing. Consider that the amount of money you use to play is more than millions of people make in a day around the world. Even in this country, following the recession, many people were counting pennies to put gas in their cars, many still are. It's a blessing to have $2, $3, $5 or even $10 per week to play a game "for entertainment purposes only".

                  Every time you have money to buy a ticket, you are blessed.

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

                      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.

                        I was doing ok before but I've been suffering from the curse the last two years. I think my Haitian friend did some kind of voodoo on me.

                              The curse of "Can't win" is real however.

                              These so called curse stories are attached to people who decided to spend their money foolishly or indulge in lifestyles

                              they never could have if they hadn't had so much money. Poor choices and a bent perception of what being rich should

                              and can be is their problem and curse. Lots of money shouldn't mean you go out and try everything, buy everything and

                              be everything. I think there are lots of people not inflicted with the 'curse'. We hear of riches gone bad because it's satisfying

                              for some people to know that for as much as they hate those who have what they don't, they lose it in a hurry or have very

                              bad things happen to them so they can feel good inside again about being where they are in life. Envy and greed are bad

                              things that make people want bad things for others, it's sad actually. I'd rather be instantly rich, lose it and be right back

                              to where I started than be one of those who harbor resentment and spite for people who win. That's a curse that keeps

                              on giving and extends to other areas in life too.

                              Don't feel cursed for not winning. We'd all like to be set for life but it just can't happen to all of us. Like onlymoney said

                              there are things that money can't buy. You could win today and be dead tomorrow...you could lose today and be dead

                              tomorrow too. There are a lot of people in the same boat, the loser boat. At least if I'm paddling away in the loser

                              boat, I've got a lot of company. I don't have to worry about who is waiting on the losers boat to sink, they're all watching

                              the winners boat. Being normal isn't a curse unless you let it be one. You might want it back once you achieve abnormal.
