several days ago,my roomate told me that one of her best friend bought a lottery ticket and won 5 yuan.this things make me remaind of my experience about buying lotteries.i remeber that i did a lot of work and study about the rule of all kinds of lottery at that time.every day i save two yuan from my expense in order to buy one lottery ticket.i dreamed that i would won millions yuan in the future.altought this dream didn't come true,i alway won a little money from lotteries.what's more,i gradually realised lotteries brought me not only a little money but also a kind of hope and a feeling of exciting.when i won the money,i would be exciting and have a good mood all the day.in some extent,lotteries helped me keep a positive attitude for a period of time.perhapes,this sentence is a little exaggeration,but the lottery for me is not only lottery.have you ever bought lotteries ?how about your feelling about it?i am looking forward to your reply.

I myself don't buy them but have a grandmother who buys them daily, lol. She loves to play any type of lottery even the scratch off ones. Well for all her years of hard work and dedication she won about $1,000 US on one single scratch off, that is the largest amount yet she has won. She did always win a few dollars here and there on every one, I swear she has the best luck of the entire family lol. I wish I had her luck but every time I decided to buy one I lost so I just stopped buying them.

I know right, I wish I was as lucky as her. I am sure that you will be lucky as well especially if you buy the tickets regularly you are bound to win a good amount soon I am sure.

I recently found a law in life, which I call "Lottery Law No. 1": The people who buy lots of tickets most of the time do not win the lottery. Those who really deserve it (the poor, the unlucky ones), do not win either. Some will, but most don't. But the people who rarely play the lottery, who just play for the first time and just wanted to try it, and also those people who don't deserve it (the rich people, the ones who have comfortable lives, the businessmen, the politicians, the tourists), these are the ones who win. Is life unfair? Yes life's rules sometimes are reversed right? :)

sadly i guess there is a bit of truth in what you are saying. those that usually win are those that dont deserve or dont need it. not always but most part of the times i guess. here in portugal there was a case of a guy that robbed a bank and next day found out that he won the lottery. isnt it so incredible? he won a lot and a lot of money but was in jail. like is really weird sometimes right? if he had waited one more day to rob the bank he would be very rich right now or maybe would have won. sometimes is like life plays with us.

Well we usually bought lottery tickets when the prize is higher than normal. But most of the time we don't. But personally I would like to buy one for every lottery draw but i don't like the hassle of going to the lottery location/seller every week.

I used to play lotteries fairly often. But I never really won too much. So I gave up because I was losing much more than I liked. It can get addictive as well unless you have self-control. Sounds like you are lucky. I hope you win big!

i agree with you^^ i also won a bit of money three times i think^^ one time i won with my friend. so we split in half^^ i think that it really gives us a positive attitude. for awhile we can dream with a different life. the truth is that with a lot of money life becomes a bit more easier if you know how to use it. i wish i could win the lottery just so i wouldnt need to be as a crazy looking for a job and could also help my mum to pay the bills. also would go to japan and donate some, also would donate some to help phillipines and china^^ african countries have more help than asian ones and besides i love asia so i would for sure help a lot of people if i won. im not saying this just to say. i would do that bcs if you win millions its like if you donate one or two you are helping a lot of people and lose nothing if you see things clear. like this week here in my country that is part of european union the lottery values 125 million euros that is like 140 million dollars. if we donate like 5 million we are helping a lot and its like we lose nothing :)
