JJ, please explain your meaning of at will.  Do you know anybody that won at will?  Also, are you a retired person?

    You all are wrong about one thing...winners can and do win at will.  They do it to potblock and screw over as many other players as possible.

    Do you meditate, I am serious, not being flippy.

    I do meditate before I choose numbers, make a big decision, long day at work, whatever.

    I am just saying give it a try, the worse thing that can happen is you will lower your blood pressure.

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

      JJ...have you tried praying of a win?

      THE LOTTERY TICKET

      JJ, who was in financial difficulty, walked into a church and started to pray. ''Listen God,'' JJ said. ''I know I haven't been perfect but I really need to win the lottery. I don't have a lot of money. Please help me out.''

      He left the church, a week went by, and he hadn't won the lottery, so he walked into a synagogue. ''Come on, God,'' he said. ''I really need this money. My mom needs surgery and I have bills to pay. Please let me win the lottery.''

      He left the synagogue, a week went by, and he didn't win the lottery. So, he went to a mosque and started to pray again. ''You're starting to disappoint me, God,'' he said. ''I've prayed and prayed. If you just let me win the lottery, I'll be a better person. I don't have to win the jackpot, just enough to get me out of debt. I'll give some to charity, even. Just let me win the lottery.''

      JJ thought this did it, so he got up and walked outside.


      The clouds opened up and a booming voice said,

      ''JJ, buy a freaking lottery ticket!''

      Does anyone know where this story comes from? I've seen it a hundred times using a hundred different names and buildings and i have no idea what the original is or  where it comes from.

        Ok, jj. I'm being really serious here.

        If you really believe winners win at will, and do so to screw over other players, then you seriously need to just stop playing the lottery.

        It has affected your mind, and you can't think straight.

        Good luck.

          Do I feel as frustrated? No. In my opinion, 1 ticket is all that's needed. Once the ticket is bought it's either a winner or loser.

            You need to lose your delusions. Why are you saying that? Because a few winners have won two or three times? It's all down to luck, even for them.

              Not frustrated yet, So far I have a pretty good "non jackpot" win back rate of over 50%, so for now thats a good chance of trying to land the jackpot.

                Are you serious right now?? Is it not everyone's will to win??

                    Simple answer: If playing the lottery makes you angry, stop playing.

                      Does it matter where this joke comes from? It's an old joke, but thought it was very apropos for this forum.

                        Which lottery games are you playing most often, Pick 3/4, Pick 5/6, or PB/MM ???

                        If you are spending a lot of money on the Jackpot games, maybe you should STOP !!! 

                        If you are spending a lot of money on the smaller games, Pick 3/4, maybe you should STOP !!! 

                        Maybe you should do something different, like start a business on the Internet [doing something that makes sense], and learn how to generate a steady, dependable, supplemental, online income instead.

                        If you need extra income, Change your  Strategy !!!

                        Maybe JJ should raffle off a dead horse!

                        A young man named JJ bought a horse from a farmer for $250. The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day. The next day, the farmer drove up to JJ's house and said, ‘Sorry son, but I have some bad news, the horse died.’

                        JJ replied, ‘Well, then just give me my money back.’

                        The farmer said, ‘Can’t do that. I went and spent it already.’

                        JJ said, ‘Ok, then, just bring me the dead horse.’

                        The farmer asked, ‘What ya gonna do with him?

                        JJ said, ‘I’m going to raffle him off.’

                        The farmer said, ‘You can’t raffle off a dead horse!’

                        JJ said, ‘Sure I can, Watch me. I just won’t tell any body he’s dead.’

                        A month Later, the farmer met up with JJ and asked, ‘What happened with that dead horse?’

                        JJ said, ‘I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at five dollars a piece and made a profit of $2245.’

                        The farmer said, ‘Didn’t anyone complain?’

                        JJ said, ‘Just the guy who won. So I gave him his five dollars back.’

                          So I bought tickets in "Can't lose" states and still lost!

                          I get sick and tired of seeing it be WAY TOO EASY for winners to win!

                          I've played HARD for years and have won nothing significant.

                          My anger is boiling over due to all of this.

                          Does anyone else feel just as frustrated?

                          They are all cant lose states. The state cant lose.

                              I think you will be much happier if you stop playing the lottery, at least for awhile.  Sometimes if frustration grows it taints everything in your life.
