Are you a lotto fanatic?

Philippines
February 16, 2009 3:26pm CST
We are all aware that the jackpot prize for the mega lotto has reached over 200 million and no winner yet as of the moment. I am not a lotto fanatic but the pot money is so tempting. Thursday last week I tried to bet on it. Unfortunately only one number came out. I might try my luck next time. How about you, are trying or have you tried your luck on lotto? Please share your lotto story. Thanks.

Correction is under your care. . It only shows that I don't know much about this lotto thing. . . LOL. . .Funny. Honestly, I don't know what day is for mega lotto or super lotto, or that 6/45 or 6/49. maybe you can tell more about this. Thanks.

The 200M+ jackpot prize really makes everyone crazy. even those who haven't played or haven't bet on lotto games have started going to lotto outlets hoping to win the prize.

I am not a fanatic on this one but when the jackpot prize reaches this level I do gamble my money on it. Well I think the jackpot is rather very tempting to get. I guess there's nothing wrong betting on it until a winner is declared I might be the one why not?

One will not become a winner if he will not bet. There is no harm in trying, so the saying goes. why not we try betting on it? The jackpot prize is getting higher since there is no winner yet, as posted above.

Yeah just don't make it a habit since in the long run it can become counter productive already. I am thinking that once in a while it would definitely be good.

Well, I am not a lotto fanatic, in fact, I do not like to buy any lottery. I am not a person who likes gambling or likes to feeling of gambling, perhaps I always think I'll lose money, so I dare not put any money on this. Also, I always think I do not have this kind of luck, or I do not believe in this kind of luck, so I do not buy any lottery.

You are right. If one does not believe in winning the lottery jsut like you do, then why bet on it? it would be useless betting if the person himself believes that he will not will. Lottery is only based on pure luck. thanks for your honest response.

I'm fully aware of this condition you mentioned here. Anyone would be tempted to bet in the current winnings at stake in the lottery since it is getting higher and higher by the day. Personally, I haven't bet for the last 2 draws of the 6/49 Superlotto. First, I don't feel like betting at this time. And honestly, I lack the extra funds to spare for the lottery. I'm not a heavy better, too. On the average, I bet about once in a couple of months or even more seldom. At the most, I have won 800 pesos more than 3 years ago. This is about 16 dollars. Somehow, this is a blessing because we used it for my monthly check-up then, when I was pregnant with our first child. Hopefully if I ever win the grand prize in the local lottery, I plan to give 10 percent of the total winnings to various charitable institutions. I will give about 10 million pesos to my parents and my parents-in-law. My spouse and I have already agreed on this subject. A portion will be utilized for purchasing our own parcel of land where we plan to build our own house. Further, about 2 million will be used to purchased additional hectares of land for plantation of various fruits and vegetables. We also dream of having our own business where we could employ less fortunate Filipinos and out-of-school youths so that in one way, we will be able to ease their burden and uplift them from poverty. Furthermore, we will be able to finally extinguish all our existing monetary obligations with various individuals, credit card companies, pawnshops, and loan agencies. About 10 million pesos will be segregated for our only child's future education. I will also deposit about 20 million pesos for our (me & my husband's) prime years. I still have to plan for the rest of the money but this will do for now, I guess.

Wow, that's a good idea. At least you know in advance where to put your money and if ever you win, you will not go broke anymore (unlike the 38M winner I have mentioned in my previous post). the only question now, when will you will if you will not bet? hehehehe

my husband loves to participate and buy lotto to make our luck and we buy tickets if we had the extra money. till now we are still buying the tickets but we only won some but not much.

Hello Janyen. At least you have won. That's a good vibe. There are people who keep on buying but never have won even once. I bought 5 tickets last thursday and it was just for fun. Only two numbers came out. . . hohohhohho . .

Hello Monishavakil! Just curious, what's the difference between your lotto and our lotto? is it easier to win the lotto in your country? here, it's very difficult. Imagine, there are 49 numbers and you are to choose 6 numbers. Chances of winning is very, very slim.

the lotto 6/49 will have another round of numbers to be drawn tonight since nobody won last sunday. another round of anticipation and excitement for about few hours from now people will all be glued to watch the lotto results later. there is always this hope and excitement every time the lotto reaches to higher amount. it cannot be denied everybody who made their bets are all rooting for it. Since, life's been hard these days all wanted to get that amount for a better and secured life. good luck those who made their bets for tonight's draw.

Still nobody won last Thursday's draw. I got the updates because I won 5 lotto tickets! It was actually my mother-in-law who gave me the money,otherwise, I would have just bought 1 itcket. Only two of my numbers came out. Better luck next time for. The huge prize tempted me to bet.

no i am not a lotto fanatic but i have friends who are fanatics and i feel that they are wasting their money on it because everyday they bet on lotto. i told them if they accumulated all their bets, maybe they can save enough money to start a business where they have more chances of getting a profit.

I know many people who put a lot of money on lotto. For many years that they have been buying lotto tickets, I'm sure, the total amount that they have spent on it will be enough to open a business, like what you have said. it's the jackpot money that drives them crazy.

I am not a not a lotto fanatic. Although I must admit, I already tried betting on it. And unluckily, I never win yet. But I know a lot of persons who are heavily into it. Hoping they will hit the jackpot to alleviate their plight.

there are many persons who are so "addicted" or hooked on betting the lotto. they spend much money on it to the point of spending the budget for their meals. some don't realize that the money they use on betting makes them poorer.

I'm not a lotto fanatic but every time the pot money reached the 150,000,000 pesos level I play a bet if I have a spare cash. I know that there's a very slim chance of winning but I kind of like the thrill of awaiting the result and crossing my fingers hoping that I will win. It's Tuesday today. Don't forget to drop by at your nearest lotto outlet. .

hello justcraap! it's nice of you to remind people of making their responses a little longer for them to get paid. Responses or posts with four or more sentences earn and it is better that some will be reminded of this if they wish to earn here. Happy mylotting.

Same with you, am not a lotto fanatic also but the pot money! OMG Every time it was announced on the news that nobody win yet the jackpot money, I keep on thinking trying to bet.
• Philippines

Honestly, the jackpot prize is the only motivating factor for me to bet. I also keep on thinking and asking "what if I have tried?" everytime I hear in the news that no one won.

Hi dorisday! We have only had the lottery here for about three years now. When we first got it passed I played scratch offs almost everyday and the powerball once a week. Now I barely play it because I never win..lol..not very lucky. All it takes is one ticket though. Good luck!

Only few people have luck on betting games. I have won in any lotto game especially that I don't bet on it often. I have a little winning streak on raffles as I have won a few times. I once won a major prize with only one ticket.

I hope you were able to go to the lotto outlets today to have a chance of winning. I saw in the TV Patrol this evening that many were lining up at the lotto outlets hoping to get the money. Good luck and God bless.

Dorisday1971, good day to you and to all our co-mylot members here in this site, escpecially to all my friends online. Well this is my response to your forum topic entitled " are you a lotto fanatic". Hmmp? Me i am not a lotto fanatic even though here in the Philippines there is a million of people who are joining in lotto and making their chance to win about 200 million. Well if ever you win that 200 million price? You will be popular here in our country. . . That amount was really high. If ever you think that in that game your chance to win is low, just try other gamble games here in our country. . . Well that's all my response to your topic! Thank you and Good day!

Thanks for responding. A lot of people are trying their luck on lotto. As reported in the news this evening, many are lining up to bet the lotto since the jackpot prize is soaring high at 200 million plus. winning the jackpot price will definitely change the winner's life.

well, i`m not lucky in this kind of game. Maybe others, but when it`s about numbers, it`s not my domain. I have a little luck in life, in other domains, but in lotto, i never won anything. I will pay for a ticket, but someting like once at 6 months. If all would be like me, thouse companies would be bankrupt.

Lottery is a game of chance and pure luck. There are some people who are lucky at it. I have won in some raffles but not in any lottery. I am not so keen on lottery. Thanks for responding.

Well I'm really not lucky in case on gambling or any type of game that really needs luck. I haven't place any bet on lotto but I think I'm gonna try it someday because some of them are turned in to charities, you will be able to win at the same time helping to others.
