I would like to be good at being lucky.

If you pick your numbers and hit, you're good only if you used a system. Although, I don't think any system can work in a random game. No No

If you buy a quick pick and hit, you're lucky. Lep

      Both could be interpreted differently- what would be your choice?  Have a Great Weekend People,  be safe out there and above all else- Stay Healthy & blessed with long life. Smile

      Don't know what "good" means in the context of lottery playing but I'd rather be lucky. 

      Machiavelli is one of the few people who understood the role fortuna plays in success. Jennifer Hudson, Usain Bolt, Warren Buffett, Oprah, are all where they are now because of a freaky set of lucky circumstances.

      I'm on the fence regarding Kit Harrington. When he was young he idolized a reporter whose name was Jon Snow. He used to say, "when I grow up, I'm going to be Jon Snow." That he just so happened to snag the role of the most popular character in HBO's most popular show, whose name just happened to be Jon Snow, may not be luck, but it's still downright freaky. 

      But I definitely believe luck played a huge part in Steven White and Gloria buying those winning tickets. So give me luck. PLEASE!!!

        Lucky. No matter how 'good' you are it takes luck to hit a jackpot.

        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.

                    I would rather have DOLLARS than SENSE (cents) 

                    I'll need the sense once I win the dollars.
