Does anyone here ever get mad besides myself when a winner screws you out of a jackpot?  I see posters here giving winners congrats & just wonder why that is when that player just screwed you.

    What? No! That's pretty ridiculous.....that's like saying if everyone else quit playing then you could win? Doesn't work that way....Everyone else could quit playing and you'd still lose, if you didn't have the winning numbers....

     

    Ever played blackjack? Same thing...you're not trying to win against the other players....you all are playing against the dealer....

      You have a problem if you think the jackpot belongs to you because you bought a ticket.  You're not mature enough to be playing the lotteries.

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

          By choosing to be mad instead of choosing to be happy you are screwing yourself.

            Getting mad at someone else winning can only be bad lottery karma.

            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.

                    It is extremely bizarre that you feel the winner cheated you personally. Perhaps some psychotherapy is in order. Your sense of entitlement is rather sociopathic.

                      How about getting mad when i dont even have a ticket? does that help?


                      to the OP
                         nahhh i may get disappointed a little,  but not mad,.when its a BIG BIG jackpot i have to wait longer for it to get back there. but mahhh have  you looked at the odds and chances, and truly understand them?
                      the only  screwing going on is you  to yourself. you took $1  that could be used for something, and  played it on a  " chance " at riches. that was the only loss of property. and you made that choice.

                      2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

                      keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

                        I voted yes, Your poll stated when someone wins, wins what?

                        Because just yesterday we had a work party raffle and my friend won the prize I wanted.

                        I started jumping up and down and fell to the floor kicking and screaming, I finally had to be sedated.

                        Chair Dang, I really wanted those chip clips.
