Every week or so there seems to be a new millionaire. Why not me? and why not you?

    I believe so, wholeheartedly. It's why I never stop playing.

    May the balls bounce in your favor!

        Just yesterday my daughters best friend's mother bought a $5 scratch off at the gas station down the street and won $77,000...just goes to show you can't win if you don't play and that is all i am sure of. I won't be shocked if i don't win big but i do keep the faith that i could hit eventually. We all face the same odds and somebody always hits..why couldn't it be me.

        I wonder if they wanted their business all over the world wide web. Type

          Why else do we play if not to win?

          I don't know if I will win a jackpot or not, but I can't win if I don't play.

          My one ticket has as much chance of being the jackpot winner as everyone else's ticket.

          If it's meant to be, then it should be ME! Don't worry, I will set some aside for my friends on Lottery Post.

            We all have the same chances to hit a major jackpot, can we all win?  Not likely.   As Clint Eastwood (Dirty Harry) once said..."Do you feel luck punk".   LOL!

              I don't really 'expect' to win a mega-jackpot, something with crazy, outer-space odds.  I like to play games with smaller jackpots, better odds, because I'm a math girl.  I like number games and I like getting money back, so I play for the fun of improving my skills, winning enough to keep playing at no cost, and therefore increasing my chances of someday hitting a jackpot. With the right type of game, something with which I've developed a good flow, yes, I believe it could happen.

                According to law of attraction, I know I will win.

                  I've been running an organized lottery pool at work for 3 years now for Powerball.  The amount of people in it have been between 12-20, I try to keep 20 people. At first It started as "only playing when the jackpot was over $100m," but I was like if we not playing we not winning. About a year and half ago I changed it to where we play every draw on a monthly basis.  Last May we were 1 number from getting all 5 white numbers. 

                   

                  Anyways, It seem to be that lottery pools win between the 3 year and 10 year mark, so maybe soon. But then again odds changed so I wonder how that will affect that.

                  Jan Powerball pool contributions -$194 + $38 win = - $156 Net;  Feb -$320 TBD
