I think many just try to blow off winning before a press conference, mostly to rub the salt into regular player's wounds. Maybe it helps them keep a lower profile. I am not sure I could do that, as it would be tough not to brag about how I beat the lottery using my own system.
But of course that could produce a lot of people trying to seek me out. But I honestly believe that mostly idiots who could not really care less if they win, are the majority of the winners. Or those already rich who are trying to find ways to blow their money, and ironically get more rich in the process. There are some exceptions, but from what I have read they are an extreme minority.
Also I assume that if anyone here won in the past they most likely took off into hiding, as opposed to sticking around to talk about it. Personally I would never change gears and run away, and I will have no problems letting everyone know on a message board that my hard work paid off. In fact it sickens me to think that someone would immediately abandon a message board that they posted on so long just because they finally hit a jackpot.
Some may assume that is a smart decision, or that they can avoid harassment; but to me that is just the beginning of a cowardice and insecure lifestyle which is not healthy. If someone wants to find you they will, and I doubt it will be from a message board. That is one of the major problems with lottery winners, they became a prisoner of their own wealth because they were ill-prepared for it in the first place.
So why most of these unprepared people continue to win is beyond me. But as I said before there is no rhyme or reason to randomness. Which also explains why we always here that QP's win more regardless of whether they are played more. Seems as though 'on the go' and 'whim QP's' are far more successful than strategized systems used by dedicated players. That is why I decided to actually make that a strategy in itself.
I just hope the mere fact that I made it a strategy does not affect the outcome of winning.
