Small games, frequent wins, and regular payouts 'cause.....

    While disappointed that it wasn't me that won, I am usually happy for those that do win. However, I do hate it when stupid people win and, I hate it win rich people win. 

    Funny, the word "hate" usually isn't in my vocabulary! I am accepting and respectful of all people with just one exception:

    I am severely allergic to stupid people! 

    btw: I don't use "cheat sheets" - Just making that known ahead of time, prior to my winning the jackpot. Smile

      Well I have played so long and so hard now that I do feel ENTITLED to a JP!!!

      I got problems & only lottery'll fix em!  With a JP win any mental issues I might have would poof disappear!

      Maybe a job would fix them as well.

        I'm disappointed when I don't win, but I'm always happy for those who do and I always hope their lives will improve as a result. Sadly, that doesn't always happen.

              Contingent on WHO won, yes it can be maddening. Most times though when I hear the winners story, it places things in perspective and a sense of goodness for their luck is extended.

              Most folk (I would like to think),play to win, not to idly toss money for the chance to wish well to another. Being gracious though doesn't cost anything so there is that side .

                  Gambling does not fix problems. It usually helps create them.  The only person you habe a right to be angry at is you. You spent your money on a ticket that statistically will lose, instead of investing it to earn money.  On the other hand you did contibute to another humans well being.... 

                  I play for the enjoy,ent and the fun of dreamimg what to do with the win, translation a couple dollars a week. Never spend more than you can afford to lopse. I look at it as a contibution to the college scholarship program, SC has thru the lottery. My neice and nephew will be "winning" it next year!

                      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.

                      "I see posters here giving winners congrats & just wonder why that is when that player just screwed you."

                      We have posters congratulating people just for playing the challenges so don't read anything into congratulating jackpot winners who probably will never read their posts.

                        I am always happy when someone wins a jackpot because it is a life changer. No one screwed me out of anything. Since the lottery odds make it impossible to win a jackpot my congrats go out to the lucky winners and just hope someday I can also win.

                          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....

                          I Agree!

                            Already have a job, pretty good one too!

                            I live comfortably, but lottery will allow me to change my situation & I have to be "retired" to change my situation because it will require a lot of time.  Lottery will harm my health for a while really because I'll have to be awake like 168 hours a week for around a year to change my situation LOL

                              You might want to rethink your situation if the only way out is to win the lottery...
