Got only one lousy Jackpot!

August 17, 2017 6:40am CST
When ever I play the lottery I didn't bother to look at the ticket whether I have won or not. Because I usually don't get all the numbers. But today after three months of betting on the Lottery, I've checked them all one by one. With all of that I only got one win ticket, but with only three matching numbers. Your supposed to get all six to win the jackpot or five to get the next best thing. Maybe for the next three months I might choose to save 20Php (half a dollar) instead of spending it on the lottery. The saved money could be useful someday. Then again, I'm not good with saving, specially if it's something near my hands Maybe Lottery isn't for me anymore or I have missed my chance about winning because I kept changing my numbers. Or numbers come out when you don't bet.

Three months are more then enough to learn the good and bad effect of lottery betting. Any game of chance has a very little chance of winning,.Think of the probability of winning of several number combinations. For example in three-digit number, how many combinations are there? There are six combinations or more. In six-digit number, how many? There are 13,983,816. So you are one of those more than thirteen bettors in lottery to win. When is it?

I just bet one ticket per day @dodoazo I used to bet more but I realized after seeing my past betting numbers that I have lost my chance.

@Letranknight2015 that's already a waste of money, if you don't mind when you bet daily for 3 months. It's good thst you've realized it and quit for good.

@dodoazo I had my chance. Maybe i's more dangerous to win now because of what's going on to our country.

that's why when i discovered the scratchit tickets, i buy them instead. they're also 20 pesos each. but i only buy when i remember. so how much did you win for the 3 matching numbers?

You know when they were just 10 pesos, I used to buy at least 500Php worth of tickets @hereandthere but instead I get half the price. What's more now if it's 20Php.

If everyone won all the time, they wouldn't make that much money would they...

Well, the jackpot would be extremely low if every one wins @YrNemo

I plan to play lottery too but I feel it will be hard to win there so it's better to just save the money instead or buy something else

I had a neighbor and she was always buying one and I got into the habit of buying one too. Then one day one of my friends told me, hey ..how are you going to claim it...and what is your guarantee somebody will not kill you for it..buy only for small bets, if you want. Made sense..stopped. lol
