I'm quiting 2 because i just find out the lottery is a hoax to get people hard earn money. Worst of all, the government involve it. It is another way to collect tax money. I just found out all those pledge they say money willl go to education is not true. I advise you to quit playing the lottery 2 because you will realize that you are throwing your money away. Truth is nobody really wins big jackpot as they claim.

AS for me ................ hoping for my big win on Friday !!!!!!!!!!   See Ya!

    i'm not sure these illinoisite's or minnesotaite's realize how much money they've won.  a modest vacation all the way up to minnesota in the dead of winter? fixing up an old truck to give away? why not trade it in and get new one for that person. filing bankruptcy over 1 credit card? cheaper to default even though now they don't have to. they sound old and don't have to worry about outliving their cash that's for sure. they should be buying a 500,000.00 house at the very least with all the extras and top of the line new vehicles. they sound too frugal to be playing the lottery in the first place. lucky them that they won, but they won too much. no clue what to do with it. i see this a lot. people over 65 who won't even play unless it is a gazillion dollar jackpot. unable to gauge or know what to do with it.

        when someone say's "i don't know. until i can see the money in the bank,it's something different,"

        then i have full confidence this winner will be smart w/ the money.

        I Agree!

              I don't see what a story posted here on Lottery Post has to do with making you spend your money. I'm happy you're quitting, one less disgruntled

              player in line complaining or just in general about not winning anything.

              I totally agree DR! You have to play to win. Don't play with scared money. If you win, you don't have to re-spend it all with the hopes of winning again and again, because it won't happen like that. You will sometimes win when you least expect it, or win when you think you are overdue. For me it's not enough until I win a huge jackpot, something that would enable me to payoff everything or most of it, and go on a vaca. Until that happens, again, I enjoy playing and usually over-play, but don't get too pissed when I do lose. I hope everyone wins enough to keep playing, or win something big and spread the wealth. I hate seeing complaints as well, but I've done it myself, haven't we all? Good Luck

                don't beleive everything you read folks.  the writer probably wrote it that way to make them seem frugal.  in  truth, they're probably driving around in a new hummer right now in the middle of colorado. 

                I hope the next winner is from the lottery post.  (:

                  merely commenting on an irrational use of their money. they could buy walnut grove. fixing up an old truck for his brother. if i were the brother i'd drive it head first into their trailer. 8 million dollars and they can't spring for a new one for him. get real. as for you try driving the wrong way on the atlantic city expressway on a friday night while watching reruns of the A-team.

                    Then you are going to spend the rest of your life hoping my friend. Trust me I know what I'm saying. I don't want to reveal how I know in here. But he lottery is another that the government create to take more of people money. This is why the lottery can't be ban because it is a corrupted shiit. So throw your money away and let me  know when you hit the jackpot big because there is no such thing. Think about it. Lfe is not as easy as the lottery portray it. They make it look like $1 can win you millions of dollars, when the truth is its not. The worst thing about it is that many people actually believe in it and go spend their dollar in the hope of winning many millions. Are you kidding me man. thats common sense. Imagine how many people who fall for this shiit. I was stupid once to believe it until I gather information from a secret sources. As a result, I lost all my money. Worst of all, I had to do things I never did before. I had to steal and in a worst ocassion I had to suck ballz.

                        Seriously.

                        People can hope and it only costs most of them a few dollars. This is the sane approach. Play and hope your numbers are drawn, if they aren't try

                        again for a few dollars more.

                        The insane approach is your way...spend all your money and then blame it on some government plot to rob the lottery playing community?

                        That's a hot one.

                        Didn't you know the odds going in? Or did you think you could cover them all if you spent however much 'all your money' was?

                            Congratulations to the jackpot winner. I didn't know why they were bankrupt before winning the lotto.

                              Wow so all thes stories about people winning are made up than?  I better tell a lady that won 17.9 million in i think it was 1989 that those check she received for 20 years werent real. She lives about 1 mile from me in this big house her and her husband built right after her supposed win. I wonder how she got those checks annually for 500 and some thousand dollars?
