Putting a 20 something year old lotto winner in a reality show is a perfect example of taking advantage of someone who is inexperienced enough to agree to do something that stupid.  Flaunting wealth is never going to give you self-esteem or win you points with others.

    I have better systems now than when I was 28. At that time I didn't bother much with regular numbers games like Pick-3 or Pick-4. I wanted only the big jackpot. Even though a lot of winners on jackpots are QP I STILL think that's because a lot more people PLAY QP but I wonder if there is a way to get some kind of statistics of how many people win with systems vs. QP vs. the overall "field". If (rough example) 100 players are sampled playing the same # tickets each and 80 use QP and 20 picked their #s, if 10 of the QP players won and 5 of the System players won, that should tell you something!

    I dislike the idea of total anonymity because I like to know what the circumstances were of how the person played and what their plans are just because it make it more interesting and inspires players to keep trying.

    As the story said, the Lottery commission can only release the NAME and CITY of the winner, but not other details such as (perhaps) how he ran in to get a lousy cup of coffee and because the girl at the counter was cute he decided to play a few Megas. I don't know if THAT will protect his privacy but it is difficult to hide tens of millions of dollars from the neighbors unless you don't spend it or if you put it into your corporate assets.

    Those are two phrases that don't belong in the same sentence "lottery" and "better system".  You're kidding right?
