It's neither luck nor fate. It's boils down to possibilities & probabilities.

 

Someone is possibly going to win, it probably won't be you.

          Someone is possibly going to win, it probably won't be you.

          But then there's the question of why not you?

          If someone is likely to win, does one player have some sort of "leg up" or advantage over everyone else?

          All it takes is one ticket with the right numbers to win.  I have seen big pools buy 1,000 or more tickets for these big $500+ million drawings and not even get a $50 return on investment, but yet some people buy one or just a few tickets and win it all.

            I Agree! My point exactly. That's what made me start this thread in the first place.

            Those that buy just one of a few tickets and win, is it being at the right place and the right time and buying the soon to be winning ticket.

            You ask for insert amount here tickets and one of those is going to win the jackpot. 

            Is it luck or fate? Most say luck because it deals with chance, but fate brought you to the place at the time you bought the ticket. Yes, I know it's complicated.

              I think they win because they found out who are what group is controlling finacial aid is this country.  I have been studying and betting in lottery for 7 years. I can put together numbers from pic 3 through cash 5. All exact numbers. Some are on the tickets with different dates and some are not even bidded on. I have put together 4 numbers in jackpot several times. I think certain amounts are predetermine and preauthorize. Some people think a value or worth is a look.

               

              For example men are valued more. Many men can find funding for sex change. Some single parent mothers still never get their child support. Certain women if they do not approved of their features or ethnic background are treated terrible.The people that run the state and make the decisions may even blackmail the employees or the state interviewer may have a stubborn heart. it may be federal.

                It goes back to probability. It has nothing to do with luck or fate, it's just basic math. We all knows the odds, we still play.

                  Yeah, the odds of winning are somewhere between slim and none!

                    No biggie but Schultz was known for saying, "I see nothing, I know nothing, I hear nothing" and Arte Johnson of Laugh in was the one who said "Very Interesting".

                    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.

                      What on earth does any of that have to do with winning a lottery jackpot?

                      You are saying that whoever controls financial aid also controls who wins a jackpot???

                      REALLY???

                        yes. i have been taught that is 2% of the people truly control the wealth. I finish college years ago expecting to make and be exposed to $60,000 or $70,000 salaries. The society is limiting me and exposing me to welfare and government programs that are controlling and not available.   I am able to put together cash 5 numbers . all exact numbers . I have done this several times, but its played on  different days. They do not think im worth $100,000. If I give it away to certain people with houses or work for state and federal it works for them and they win and do not share with me. Some people are under the impression if you have a house and a car that information from a poorer person should be free to the wealthy, but I disagree.  Certain people they just want them to live at the bottom of the chain cycle. I am able to match 4 out of 5 in jackpot  games such as meagamillion and powerball sometimes but they are on different days.

                            The top 1% of population, in terms of worth, own 50% of the worlds wealth.  They do have control over their finances, thus ultimately half the worlds wealth as a result.  This does not, however, have anything to do with your ability to win the lottery.  There is not an agency that determines if you are "worth" winning any amount.  You win the lottery because the numbers on your ticket was selected through a random process. The odds are astronomical and explains why almost everyone does not win.  But we play because it is possible to win.  No one is pre-selected to win or lose.  You mention matching numbers but not on the right drawing day.  Well, then you did not match the numbers.  No one made it so you wouldn't match, you just didn't match.  Most players don't.  You play the lottery with a hope to win, not with an expectation to win, and then blame society as the reason you do not win.

                              I'm feeling a jackpot win coming my way!
