Are you ever embarrassed that you're not a winner yet?

If you're like me & have played for quite a few years, played hard, and even played trends, do you find it embarrassing that you haven't won yet?  Given the fact that there are such a large number of winners, and given the fact that it's way too easy for them, I do feel embarrassed.

One day that will change however & then I can feel proud & as if all my time & effort was worthwhile.  I will then openly proclaim myself to be the only winner that had a HARD time winning.

Even though it's extremely embarrassing not to be a winner, I will keep on & keep playing trends.

          Why would I be embarrassed about buying a few lottery tickets and not winning a jackpot?  For the local 6/49 game the odds of winning a jackpot are 1:14M and although I've matched 5of6 twice for $1500 in the last few years, after paying taxes those wins only covered about half of what I spent on tickets those years.  I know if I ever do win a jackpot, it will be a lot more than I ever spent or ever plan to spend on tickets.

          I also play PB and MM with odds of 1:200M for winning a jackpot and odds of 1:12M or worst of winning $1M but I'll never come close to buying that many tickets and if I ever do win a jackpot I'll know that jackpot was created by lots of players buying tickets and winning nothing and I won't be embarrassed to accept it.

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

              jj,

              You're not supposed to win. The lotteries know this all too well but evidently a lot of players don't. Whenever you play a ticket consider the money gone, anything that comes back is gravy.

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

              Lep

              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.

                  No.  It's not embarrassing.  What is both embarrassing and shameful is watching that person at the lotto terminal with a huge stack of slips filled out, getting scratchers like they're pulling toilet paper off the roll.  I spend $1 per draw on MM.  That's it.  The odds of winning are 1:258,890,850.  Since I play twice per week, I'm bound to hit the jackpot ONCE in 129,445,425 weeks.  That's roughly 2.5 million years.  That's my plan.  If I hit, it is dumb luck, nothing more, nothing less.

                              I do feel embarassed at times.  As if my skill is lacking.  I dont like it when people tell me to quit though.  One time this guys said, "Well how can you tell what going to come out?  Its all random.  I held in my impulse to blurt out, there are trends fool!!!

                              I just listened and didn't argue.  He told me very informatively how options bets are a better buy then stocks.  I said thats interesting.  Then he said, but your options expire or something.  Then I thought oh boy, this guy is very self absorbed.  Very smart, but self, absorbed. 

                              For a guy who tracks trends, he is not too interested in others trends.
