Do you ever think that you are certain to win at a lottery?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (17514points) November 13th, 2017

Because you are good? Or that God would free you from poverty? I thought like that once now I believe that it is totally random. I had to sell my super-NES for $80 to pay my rent in 1995, Because I blew $25 on video lottery terminals that was needed for rent.

Uh, no.

What a waste of money. They’re stacked against you.

I dont play myself, it’s a racket and a crapshoot.

There have been times I felt very strongly that I deserved to, but I deserve lots that I never got.
I deserve to spend a week being 27 again, just to have one last shot with having energy, agility, multitasking.
That ain’t gonna happen either.

No. I’m pretty clear that the odds are incredibly slim. I’ve won a few things in smaller raffles and such, though.

Haven’t bought a lottery ticket so far and don’t intend to in future as well. It’s waste of your hard earned money.

I will occasionally buy a ticket when the Power Ball gets into the hundreds of millions

And in spite of the odds, I am always a little surprised and disappointed when I don’t win.

Years ago I bought one or two lottery tickets for a dollar each. I did it for the sheer experience of doing it. Never occurred to me that I might win. I have done casino gambling a few times. When I do it, I stake myself to a number of chips that I consider the price for a night out. When the chips run out, I am done gambling.

I think I’m almost certain to lose but I don’t mind losing a little if it gives me a slight possibility of winning a lot.

In an app I’ve gotten $250 so if I’m lucky enough, I might win that much money in real life.

imrainmaker's avatar

My friend has won coupons
many times when he used to “spin the wheel” along with his daughter. She’s his lucky charm i guess!!!
