 Just what is LUCK, anyway? I think an ancient Roman, (who went by the name of) Seneca, did the best when it comes to defining luck. He said, (in Latin, of course; but translated:), "Luck is when preparation meets opportunity."
 'Probability' versus 'Possibility' Probability in a lottery sense, is something that is strictly mathematical. If you know how many lottery balls are going to be drawn from a specific quantity of differently numbered balls, you can use a formula to determine the probabilty that your choices will be drawn. In the simplest of cases, you don't even need a formula.  Suppose you have to pick a particular numbered ball (without cheating, of course) from a bag containing 49 differently numbered balls. The probability is simply 1 out of 49. Possibility, on the other hand, has little to do with Math, and everything to do with 'Yes, it can happen' and 'No, it cannot happen'. Possibility is either 'Yes' or 'No, 'On' or 'Off', 'True' or 'False... simply, either it is possible or it isn't. If before a lottery drawing, you choose 6 numbers for a future drawing, every single one of your choices is equally possible, and your six choices have exactly the same possibility of winning the big jackpot as anybody else's 6 choices. The instant that first ball is drawn, the possibilty either remains 'True' because it matches a number you had chosen, or if that first ball isn't among your 6 choices, then the possibility of winning the 'big one' is dashed to 'False'. And so it goes all the way up to the 6th drawn ball.  The 'possibilty' remains 'True' as long as each drawn balls matches one of your 6 choices. And, (it should go without saying), if the first 5 drawn balls have matched 5 of your 6 choices -AND- the 6th drawn ball matches, then 'possibilty' is no longer an issue. It is now a 'certainty'!
