I was right!!!!!!!!  I said the lottery ticket would be sold in a particular state with certain demographics or, or, or, or IN A STORE WITH CERTAIN DEMOGRAPHICS!!

Any idea when a kid from the Bronx would win? (hint: me)

    A total of $9 for 3 sets of numbers, several readers were nearly spot on on what it would take to win this one.

        I have never posted here before but felt the need to reply to this story.

        There is just something that seems very suspicious about this

        story.

        Out of the millions of tickets there were purchased there happens to be

        just one winner from Newport Rhode Island?  sure.....

         

        Something smells very strange about this.

        One person (probably a WHITE PERSON) matched all 6 numbers

        in the relatively small section of newport Rhode Island out of everywhere

        else in the country?  Something isn't right here folks.

        If you look at the demographics for Newport Rhode island on wiki

         

        If you scroll down to demographics you will see the racial makeup

        of the city is 84% WHITE people. It is also home to the famous "breakers"

        mansion. 

        So another certain demographic takes home another gigantic jackpot

        of something along the range of $120 million cash.

        Probably some rich white people who didn't BADLY NEED the money!!!

        No No  I'm so sick of this crap in this racist country.

        All you rich white people keep whining about Obama but this is exactly

        why we need him in the WHITE house. To tax you rich white folks who

        are greedy and racist.

        Don't even get me started about how racist the ALL WHITE Tea party and republican

        parties are.

        To the person who won this jackpot in Rhode Island.

        If you're a person of color do good with it by donating to some of the rest of

        us in this country. If you're white enjoy it while you can, you will soon be a minority

        in your own country born out of SLAVERY and genocide on Native Americans.

         

        Had to get this off my chest.

        I think you need to re-examine the amount of stereotyping in your long winded post. It seems to me that you are far more racist than the group of people that you are condeming. Your arguement does not hold any ground, folks from all ethnic backgrounds, wealth classes and ages have won the big one. Most recently of note, a young middle class Black lady got a very nice $72M Mega Millions win in Atlanta, GA.

        There is no conspiracy, it just happened to be one ticket holder's lucky day.

              No conspiracy? pfft

              The sole winning ticket was won in one of the wealthiest areas of one of

              the smallest states in one of the LEAST populous areas (newport)

              but which also happens to be one of the wealthiest and WHITEST areas.

              The demographics just happens to be almost all white and rich also

              You're telling me not to question anything? LOL!

              Need I also remind everyone of the recent Putnam Avenue Family Trust

              powerball win in Connecticut (White/Wealthy/Hedge fund capital) area.

              WHITE! 

              Look at all the Lottery shows on TV. Almost ALL WHITE people who win.

              And the largest jackpots are almost always Whites.

              Not sour grapes. I did play $50 for this jackpot...25 $2 tickets

              I needed this win SO BADLY and so did many other poor people.

              It would have changed my life for the better and allowed me to help my

              family.

              To see another rich, greedy WHITE (probably racist to boot) person win this much money just makes

              me very sick.

              Something is just not right about this story...and I know many others

              feel something is fishy as well.

                Had to get this off my chest.

                WTF!!!!!! ARE YOU FOR REAL? DO NOT MAKE THIS ABOUT RACE OR POLITICS!!!!!!!First you do not SPEAK for ALL African Americans.  And By the way I am an conservative and I am African American... you need to get a life & stop playing the RACE card.... who ever the winner is spent $9.00 that's all not hundreds or thousands of dollars $9.00... 

                We do not know the race of the winner/s & even if they are White SO WHAT!!!!! they bought the tickets & won get over it!!!!!!

                Also there was a recent Mega Million Jackpot winner from Georgia named Marcia Adams who by the way is African American  you do not hear White American crying the race card because she spent $2.00 on a ticket & won.

                Take your racist comments else where.....

                  No No             Blue Angel

                  Now Now Children.....

                  Play nice.

                  We will not have any name calling or finger pointing.

                  We are here to practice good sportmanship and to encourage each other as we run after our respected jackpots.

                  If you see a fellow lottery player fall, give them a hand up and say some encouraging words.

                  It takes the same amount of time to say something nice as it does to say something mean.

                  We all know that it is to our advantage to spread and build as much positive karma as humanly possible.

                  Realize that many of us have won jackpots and don't realize it.

                  Such as:

                  Cancer in remission.

                  Survived an accident that should've killed you.

                  Children's lives spared.

                  Got a job you didn't really think you would get.

                  Your paycheck didn't bounce when you went to cash it.

                  Received a pay raise during this economic nightmare.

                  Able to dine out twice a week.

                  Your home has not been broken into and everything of value was taken.

                  Your internet service is working during bad weather.

                  Your cell phone doesn't drop calls.

                  Your computer doesn't freeze up.

                  You found this website and you can enjoy so many features that other websites would charge for.

                  You don't have an underground leak and your water bill is $285 or more every month.

                  These are just a few jackpots we win everyday.

                  They mean nothing until you find yourself in a position such as these.

                  So let's all celebrate and expect the same once we get our jackpot.

                    Dear hawkeye, the lottery is colorblind, mute, and invisible to all the crap and Rodrique that gets kicked around like this every hour of the day.

                     

                    Simply put, just pay, play or go away.

                     

                    Had you been one the big winners, this rant  would be a non issue.

                     

                    Take your sour grapes, and go make your "Boonesfarm" wine elsewhere.     Poke

                      Perhaps you're right...

                      I am mad and venting.

                      I am not trying to say that ALL white people are racist or that ONLY white people

                      win the lottery...this is obviously not the case.

                      I am just expressing my feelings on another wealthy area/demographic of the country hitting

                      the jackpot with the sole winning ticket.

                      There are many people out here hurting very bad and needed this money.

                      Anybody can play and win, true, but to see another (most likely) rich white person

                      win is a little nauseating.

No promises were ever guaranteed when we were born, Things are thrown at us....how we react to it determines our character and perception of others. You didn't win a lottery this time, HUNDRED'S OF MILLIONS WIN NOTHING EVERY DAY, SO WHAT? millions are without job's, have lost their homes in foreclosures, are living on the streets.......Black's.....White's ......Hispanic's......Oriental's.....Muslim's......What make's you so unique???

                            win the lottery...this is obviously not the case.

                            I am just expressing my feelings on another wealthy area/demographic of the country hitting

                            the jackpot with the sole winning ticket.

                            There are many people out here hurting very bad and needed this money.

                            Anybody can play and win, true, but to see another (most likely) rich white person

                            win is a little nauseating.

                            Some times that's just how the ball rolls.

                            There's also a good posibility that the winner might even be an 18-year old Hispanic or Asian teenager employed at the store, we'll just have to wait and see.

                            But I hope who ever won, keeps their mouth shut and handles their new wealth responsibly, some folks spent a lot of money pushing someone into the 1%, please do not waste it. 

                            Would not surprise me if the next winner is some old grandmother well past retirement age that had to get a door greeter job at the local Wal-mart to make ends meet.

                            These things always come full circle.

                            Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. ~Ronald Reagan

                              I have never posted here before but felt the need to reply to this story.

                              There is just something that seems very suspicious about this

                              story.

                              Out of the millions of tickets there were purchased there happens to be

                              just one winner from Newport Rhode Island?  sure.....

                               

                              Something smells very strange about this.

                              One person (probably a WHITE PERSON) matched all 6 numbers

                              in the relatively small section of newport Rhode Island out of everywhere

                              else in the country?  Something isn't right here folks.

                              If you look at the demographics for Newport Rhode island on wiki

                               

                              If you scroll down to demographics you will see the racial makeup

                              of the city is 84% WHITE people. It is also home to the famous "breakers"

                              mansion. 

                              So another certain demographic takes home another gigantic jackpot

                              of something along the range of $120 million cash.

                              Probably some rich white people who didn't BADLY NEED the money!!!

                              No No  I'm so sick of this crap in this racist country.

                              All you rich white people keep whining about Obama but this is exactly

                              why we need him in the WHITE house. To tax you rich white folks who

                              are greedy and racist.

                              Don't even get me started about how racist the ALL WHITE Tea party and republican

                              parties are.

                              To the person who won this jackpot in Rhode Island.

                              If you're a person of color do good with it by donating to some of the rest of

                              us in this country. If you're white enjoy it while you can, you will soon be a minority

                              in your own country born out of SLAVERY and genocide on Native Americans.

                               

                              Had to get this off my chest.
