Pure plain and simple the idiots in Massachusetts got beat at their own game, so they blame the Group of players. Give me a <snip> break, it's YOUR game, you make the rules, if someone comes in and wins pay 'em and shut the f&#$ UP!

    This story contrasts well with the one about the TN lottery. http://www.lotterypost.com/news/237608

    State does well, it's all good.

    Players do well, throw a fit & end the game.

      The state lottery allowed this to go on because it made 40% to 50% profit from all the wagers. The integrity of the game became an issue when it was discovered small groups of people were winning the majority of the secondary prizes. And because of the size of the bets, it diluted the amount of payoffs expected by regular players.

      Because the larger secondary prize payoffs were a result of the rollback of the jackpot, the lottery had already made its profit. The lottery did alert all the players when a rollback was expected, but one of the groups found a way to create the rollback that was unexpected and players were not notified until it was too late.

        I admit that I am so slow, I'm going backwards.......

        Does this mean that if I follow my gut instinct on 4 key numbers in my number crunching and decide to drop somewhere between $500 to $10,000 following a hunch, that I am doing something wrong?

        I understand that these "whales" had a larger budget to work with.

        But does that mean when the "non-whales" go for it we are going to be denied the opportunity to see if we were right or wrong?

        Does this mean that if we are right on the money with our 4 key numbers and we spend the $500 to $10,000, then we don't get paid all of our winnings?

        Seems to me that the other "whales" are miffed because "young buck" beat them at their own game and forced their hand.

        I find it hard to believe that the original "whales" gave a "fat-rats'-azz" about the other lottery players getting in on the rolldown payout.

        This is AMERICA!!

        Rule #1:  "THE BANKROLL RULES.........." (Sir-Mix-Alot)

        That's why during "rolldown season" the "whales" swim to the bank with millions and the average joe blow don't.

            Oh, the state always does well in TN.

            Even if they have to make sure the computer doesn't let any doubles win for a while.

            It's like Malcolm X said: "By any means necessary."
