What do you think about lottery? I mean the lottery ticket. Do you buy it? How often? And how much do you spend in this one time? Maybe the lottery is the most rapid way of being rich .Not everyone can win the first prize, but you do have the opportunity. If you are lucky enough, it will happen to you. For me, i almost buy it every day. But just one ticket one time. I mean i do this to try my luck, not to gamble. Maybe one day God loves me, i will be the lucky guy. Yeah, i concede that this kind of behavior may sounds like reaping without sowing. But change your thinking from another way. When you see or hear somebody win the first prize, would you admire this guy or even be envious for this? Don't you think why youself? You never know what will happen next moment in your life. So i buy the ticket and try my luck. what's your opinion? tell me.

I've done research on lotto several years back so I know a lot about the subject. I have even written my own lotto primer because I planned to organized a Lotto Club. I also helped a friend pick about 20,000 combinations using "wheeling techniques" for betting at our local lotto game. So, I have first-hand experience in the kind of logistics you will need to make a huge bet. Actually, we did it twice so I managed to improve my methods the second time. Of course, we didn't win anything major. Right now, I still need to do some simulation to test a theory I have about random numbers. But I made a promise to myself that someday I will be instrumental in winning a lotto jackpot.

Incidentally, I also use my knowledge of astrology for timing and for luck. My technique or theory is to choose which people are lucky by reading their charts and let them bet with me.

Don't you think the lotto game as a science or a technique? Your research and what you did is cool, and i admire your courage very much. Bless!

It is purely dependent on LUCK. Well, i still believe in the word LUCK because I have seen many LUCKY people. But I have my own definition of L.U.C.K. which is Laboring Under Correct Knowledge. Instead of depending on LUCK, I decided to create my own LUCK!

Totally agree. Instead of waiting the luck come to us, why not we create our own. For the lottery, no matter you win or not. End up you still a loser.

I do occasionally buy lottery tickets, but it isn't something that I do on a regular basis simply because of the fact that I don't have money that I can throw away. It is a great fantasy to think about what I would do my winnings if I was to win the lottery, but I really don't think that I am going to have the opportunity to win on the lottery because of the fact that I very rarely play. Of course, there is always the chance that the next time that I play could be my lucky day.

I do play the lottery some times, but not that often. Not many people win, although when they do they win big!

I think it is a way for the government to get more money from people. I was watching Clark Howard this morning, and he was actually showing some statistics of how much certain states make off the lottery. The charts showed how much money people spent on lottery tickets in a particular year, and how much the states had to pay out in winnings. The amounts of money these states were making in profit from their lotteries for that year alone were in the billions of dollars.

Lottery is really a rapid way to get rich, you just need your luck. I only buy it when I have a feeling that I can win it. Actually I didnot. As you say, why do not try my luck, maybe I could win the first prize someday. I think we can spend some money several days a time to buy it. one lottery has the same oppotunity to win as 100 lotterys.

This is something I never did and do not wish to do so in future as well. I do believe in luck but can not be a blind behind luck, unless I do my part, no one is going to help me, not even GOD. I cannot sit idle and wish that I will be rich just because of luck. Same is Lottery tickets, you may win but that is very unlikely. I do not believe in lottery.

I think the lottery is a good thing and that it is helpful to those who win. But, I never play. I just kind of forget about it. And, I don't really know what I'm doing when I go in to buy a ticket. So, I feel foolish. My mother-in-law plays the lottery and says she will give us some money when she wins. She has faith! I guess I should start playing more. It would be nice to win!

Buy a ticket now and then, if you want to. It is just about the only way a normal person will ever get his hands on a ton of money. Getting rich by working hard is just a bunch of bull. It will never happen. You should understand, though, that your odds of winning the lottery are approximately the same if you don't play as they are if you do play. The math is simple.

Hi myy0220, I am not much of a gambler. I do take a lottery ticket once in a while but I am not much of a fan of gambling or buying lottery tickets. I just try my luck. I think that it is highly improbable that I will ever win a lottery ticket but there is no harm in trying

I never buy any lottery ticket because i think this kind of thing is wasting time and money. I rather works for 10 hours everyday for years. Although I may not become rich, but i am happy with the money that i got from my own efforts. I do not like to waste my money to buy something like lottery and just wait the money or prize to come flying to me...this is just my opinion.:D Happy mylotting.

I used to buy lottery but now I don't buy anymore because I haven't even won a consolation prize. Perhaps lottery is not for me so I stopped buying lottery.

I don't buy lottery tickets.I consider as a wiggering of money.Lottery,like any form of gambling is susceptible to frauds despite the high degree of scrutiny claimed by the organizers.I would rather like to work hard and earn than simply beliving in the word "luck".Lotteries are simply frauds and scams that today most commonly starts with an email or SMS saying the recipient that u have won a great sone of money.

money: who wouldn't want it? - all of us need money.why is it really hard to achieve these days specially when you are poor and have no education.
i knew a person who were like you,always everyday he try to win his luck.i guess there's nothing wrong to try one's luck but sometimes when you're out of money i don't think the last penny you'd still buy a lottery ticket. i myself have also tried to try my luck on it,but nothing changed.well,i think it's because i'm not always buying ticket everyday.sometimes when i just thought of it,if it was my trip that time,i'd try to buy ticket. i remember my father.he seems to always try his luck even if it is his surgery time! i find it funny that even though he was about to be operated in the heart that day,he still thinks of buying a lottery ticket,which we make a bet. i've just read a news that one man had won in lottery twice in a day, can you believe it?here's the link on it: http://wbztv.com/local/man.wins.lottery.2.1102577.html i guess if it is really your time to win,it will be yours! some said,if you really didn't expect that thing you want to achieve, it will come to you in ways you didn't expect!

Well, I think my chances of winning the big prize are quite slim, but I have won smaller prizes and I am not really out of pocket. So I will always do the lottery whilst I can affor it. It is a long-shot, but somebody seems to win the jackpot most weeks and one never knows! _Derek

Lottery is the only way through which a person can be a millionare or billionare through the way which is not against law. There are other ways to become a very rich person by doing activities against law. Lottery gives hope to many people. I think government should not ban lotteries. Lotteries are banned in my state of the country, but some of the states of my country have them. People can also become very rich by participating in competitions that offer big money.
