"Frankly speaking people would rather the odds of winning increase than the ticket price increase."

Give me a break! Speak for yourself.  Unless of course you asked EVERYONE and EVERYONE told you !

No you give me a break. Why do you think PB or MM have never tried to increase the price of the two? do you think it's just a concidence? please! the PB officials went to great lengths to assure players that they would not be increasing the ticket prices. Oh and when I say "people" I meant majority of players as surveyed by PB. It would be ridiculous for me to carry out that survey, wouldn't  it now?

    i dont get how people can buy a lottery ticket and not check to see if they won after the drawingHit With Stick

    My guess is because she got the ticket as a gift and since she din't buy it herself that she just forgot about it. Maybe she isn't a regular player, so it wasn't on her mind. Who knows.

      Could be she was more interested in studying than checking on the status of her lottery tickets.

        I just googled it using these words "Woman checks old lottery ticket, wins $10 million" it brought up 19,000 hits and over 149,000 hits in Yahoo.

        So it most likely is not made up.

         

        Although I think I know where you are coming from.

        You are probably, and I am simply guessing and meaning no harm in saying

        You are one of those avid lottery players who feels you've been almost cursed by the lottery and never can get the numbers right yet come so darn close and try so hard but fail every time.

        Or you are so darn envious of anothers win that you simply cannot fathom such a story, because it wasn't you who had such an unfathomable event occur to you.

         Or you feel the whole thing was set up from the get go and think this women is just a pawn.

         

        Well whatever the reason you feel it is made up, I can only say I wish you the same luck. Yet I can tell you from experience that chasing the numbers is not a good idea and most times never pays off ahead. You would be better off to cool your jets, and live your life. Maybe good fortune will come to you then.

         

        And remember don't take things so badly its only a game.

          its not $6 a ticket, its 65c AUD for a 1 in 45 millon chance, you have to buy a min price of 2 lines so $1.30AUD as long as you dont play the same 6 numbers the 2 lines will reduce your odds considerably.

           

          she prob played 14 lines , around the $8 mark. so 45 mill divded by 14,  she actually had a 1 in 3.2 mill chance
