Do you think the people who win the lottery win by dumb luck?
It's hard for me to believe winning the lottery is just getting really, really, really, really lucky.

It's luck...plain and simple.
Bought 1170 tickets last Saturday for the syndicate and didn't even get 4 matching numbers in any ticket:)

I think you have a higher chance of getting hit with a stray bullet than winning the lottery, and for some reason old people are the only ones that get the hang of it.
Gambling is more dangerous (getting shot-wise) but with that, it's 50/50 skill and luck as opposed to wasting your savings on a machine and then hoping that it gives something back in return.

That's hard to believe? What do you believe then? That there is an actual strategy to winning?
Then why don't all these people win 20 times? Why isn't there a book with the strategy written down? Each jackpot would have 300 winners at least, no?
I'd say it's hard for me to believe people don't know the definition of the word "random", but here's another example.

Yes. This is why it is called gambling.
Gambling is not a game of skill. You can't skill your way into massive winnings at the Craps table or Roulette table. But you could get lucky.

Believe it. Mathematically it makes sense. If the odds of winning are 1:14,000,000 and 14,000,000 buy a ticket than the odds are someone is going to win eventually

No offense, but you do you imagine instead?
Game is fixed?
So yeah, unless there's some other explanation, I do think it's just chance.

ANYONE who tells you that it's anything other than luck, is either lying to you so they can sell you some piece of crap book or system, or they are a complete idiot, or both.

Yes, it is just luck.
What other explanation do you have?
