The fact that Brad Duke has earned money on his lottery winnings during this financial economy downturn, speaks well of his investment strategies.

I Agree!

    I always knew I would win as well.
    Our national lottery just have not drawn my numbers yet.

    Suspiciousness is one way of saying that one do not want to know the truth. It is the best way to keep the mind empty and the spirit restless.

      Does anybody else notice anything strange about Brad Duke's winning ticket from May 2005?

      I did a search for Brad Duke 2012 and Brad Duke 2005 and found two different videos showing close ups of his winning ticket.

      The video from 2005 as well as the recent one this month both show a four-line ticket purchased for $4.

      The lines appear to be labeled   A . . . B . . . D . . . and . . . E.

      What happened to Line C?

      The winning numbers are on the second line, Line B.

      How might something like that happen?

      Was this ticket a misprint?

      Has any explanation ever been given?

      He was paid the money, so it must have passed all the stringent security protocals by the Idaho Lottery.

      Maybe someone with higher status will post  links to the videos and screen captures, as I don't believe I am currently allowed to post links or attachments under LP rules due to New Member status.

        welcome to LP maxamillion.

        maybe line c was blank on his bet slip.

        so the mach. skipped over it.

          So he reunited this past week with his winning ticket? Does anyone know why? Once the ticket is verified does the winner get to keep the ticket or does the state lottery commission keep it?

          I've starting asking that my verified winning tickets be returned to me but they've been cashed at the local retailer and the most they've matched so far is four.

          from the above article "But if you ask Brad, those lucky numbers didn't do the work. He did. And luck had nothing to do with it."

          Maybe he's believing if he did it once, he can do it again.  With new matrix and price, PB jackpots will be larger and maybe he's thinking it's an easier way to reach his billion dollars goal.

            That has happened to me when I make a mistake on a play slip and rather than make out a new slip I void that block and continue to fill out the other blocks.

              Thanks for the explanation, RJOh. I had never seen that before.

                 Hold on, I just caught the bit about him being re-united with his ticket. So, the Lottery Commission keeps those "valuable" prints for their records for a few years? After they have been validated, certainly they are valueless, I think. It must have been surreal to be re-united with a piece of paper that changed his life, dramatically.

                  RJOH,

                    That was a great explanation, voiding a line on your slip thus, the printed ticket, skips that line. To a few individuals who believe that he must have been crass with his fortune to be a guest on "The Lottery Changed My Life." He isn't broke, is he? He seems to be well off financially as there is no news of him being displaced financially. Duke's investors and financial officers must be very experienced and well versed and mostly, I believe the man has majority say in what and where his investments are placed. I read somewhere that the man got himself a proper "education" on understanding his wealth and financing. At least, to the point of understaning how his team of professionals, worked for him.

                   A very intelligent lottery winner he is, winning is one thing, understanding how to handle and multiply the wealth is the crucial element.

                  I think you're confused about what Cletus believes. My guess is that he believes in positive thinking, but has a more realistic understanding of what it can do than some people.

                  I don't doubt that Duke believed he would win, or that you believe you will win. I also know that there are millions of other people who believe they will win. The reality is that life is far too short for more than a very, very small percentage of those people to be right, no matter how much positive thinking they can muster.

                  I must agree with the perspective displayed by K Flyd.  The translation is much more reasonable.

                  I can be positive to the point of delusional...it doesnt change the draw....When the stars align or things are working with you...then so be it. I sincerely believe some folks despite their best foot forward are given hard knocks thru life....SO to each goes Lifes challenges.

                   

                  For what its worth when Brad won he truly maintained a Low lifestyle..it wasnt til recently he "allowed" himself the ability to purchase a homestead (estate)and a new Aston Martin. Sometimes we simply must acknowledge that we are here but once thru life ..and enjoy a few of its luxuries. As he said ..We cant keep bailing everyone out of bankruptcy...they'll just go back to doing it again...but what we can do is educate them how not to go there the first time...He currently funds a Childrens program that teaches simple economic values....

                  A man who invests in the mind invest in much. Kudos to him for that.

                      "I had a dress rehearsal when I scored $200K in August  "07" when my Powerball numbers came up 5+0."

                      There was a Ohio Lottery Buckeye 5 player that must have "absolutely believed" that he was going to win the jackpot because he had 54 winning tickets. He didn't know the lottery had a $1 million aggregate payout limit and thought he won $5.4 million. In PB the jackpot amount is the limit and the jackpot is split by the number of winning tickets if there are multiple winners. It is logical to conclude anyone who "absolutely believes" their numbers are going to be drawn, would at the very least have two winning tickets especially when the jackpots are smaller.

                      As others said, millions of players (like Brad Duke) probably "absolutely believe" they will win the jackpot too. I don't know if PB had the powerplay option in 2007 but today the true believers are those spending an extra buck.

                      Brad Duke picked his jackpot winning numbers having more faith than the millions of average "give me one PB QP" players.

                       " I don't know if PB had the powerplay option in 2007 but today the true believers are those spending an extra buck."

                      Excellent point.

                      But even being a true believer won't come between a true cheapskate and an extra dollar.

                        Spending that extra buck or two can change your life forever. Having a budget is all good and fine. Bottom line is, are you ready to step up and do what it takes to make it happen?

                         

                        No large  lottery winner ever regrets the number of drawings and cash it took to get there. Because millions cannot realize that dream....that's their problem.....get over it and "GO FOR IT"!!!     Lep

                          OK, there's nothing wrong with visualization, writing yourself a check, etc...as long as you don't let an anticipated win or event turn into a prison of expectation.

                          Using the Law of Attraction alone withouyt the Law of Detachment is like having a brand new Maserati with no fuel in it and not a gas station in sight. 

                          If you make yourslef believe that you are going to win to the pont of betting paychecks on lottery tickets then that wishful thinking becomes economic suicide.

                          Also, does anyone else here find the timing of this story a little odd? Just perhaps PB play is down, after a ticket price hike and then a big payout, and this was leaked to the news to stir up some sales. Just a thought.

                          What?

                          (Personally I don't think an extra $1 spent trying to win multi millions is all that traumatic, as has been said here, but obviously ome people do.)

                          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                          Lep

                          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                            That's fine if you're just buying one $2 tickets, but if you're buying ten then spending an extra $1 on one of them is mostly likely a waste of money.
