    I am but a humble servant of the LP forum. I appreciate that my "suggestion" may have practical merits.

    I for one, will stop playing the lottery this instant. In fact the tickets that I already picked up for tonight's drawing, are going back to the convenience store clerk, where I will instruct him to give to any non-white person who appears to need a little "assistance" in life.    Hippy

     

    Let the boycott of white lottery players begin!!!      Hyper

    Mac, lets face it, you are just one of them thar yankee racists caucasians that spies for those Powerball Hitler Youth Movement Group....I don't care if you own a color TV or not   No No...I am boycottin ya startin now !!!

    Stay Positive, Believe and good things will come your way

          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?

          The Idaho Lottery Commission had a promo event at the store he purchased his ticket at during this last Powerball run.  They had  a meet and greet with Brad, and a special like buy 5 get 1 free or something.

          I didn't go, I'm sure it was crowded, and far away enough that I'd have had to drive, so not worth it to me to save a buck or whatever the promo was.

          I do know lots of people still go to that store for their tickets, thinking it's lucky.  IIRC, there was a $20 or $30 million winner sold at that store several years earlier.

              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 Agree!                                                                 I Agree!

                 Hello HoLeeKau,

                  I'm sorry, I was having a laugh fest here. Anywho, you say, Brad was in attendance hence, the media glitz? Ah, so business was being drummed up, advertising, the biggest winner in Idaho history as well as other lucky winners.

                    Brad Duke held the luckiest piece of paper in Idaho history inside a Jackson's food store near Orchard and the interstate.

                    "This was some place someone had to dig around for three hours?" Duke asked an Idaho Lottery spokesman, gesturing to what he held in his hand.

                    Seven years before, the ticket with which Brad posed, Wednesay, won him $220.3 million. No Idahoan — and only 17 Americans — has ever won more.

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

                    "Yes," Brad said. "I absolutely thought I was going to win. In fact, I wrote a check out to myself for a million dollars and in the note section I put: earn/won."

                    Brad told us, Wednesday, he liked number games, considered Powerball a hobby and always knew that someday, he'd win.

                    "I had written about it in my journal," he said. "It was my favorite campfire topic: What would you do if you won the lottery?"

                    And that's what we really wanted to know: Seven years later what'd you buy, Brad?

                    "There are definitely some different things in my life," he said with a smile.

                    Brad started a family foundation for children, pedals the nicest road bike on the market and paid a helicopter to fly him and a buddy to the top of a Canadian glacier so they could mountain bike to the bottom. But while he arrived at the Jackson's in a Porsche, Brad sported no bling and said he'd researched all his spending and investments.

                    "My first piece of advice to anybody who would win the lottery is take a breath and start thinking about who's going to help you do the right thing," he said.

                    And who knows: One of the throng purchasing tickets behind him, Wednesday, might find a use for that advice (afterall, the current Powerball jackpot stood at $250 million).

                    Brad and his ticket, meanwhile, reunited for the first time since the June, 2005 Powerball winner sent in the winning ticket — and after a detective rescued that piece of paper from the obscurity of a lottery warehouse.

                    How did this guy, brad duke just know he was going to win?
                    He says " I absolutely knew I was going to win"
                    How did he know this?
                    Something is not right about that statement.

                    Whether the lottery IS or isn't rigged, it looks as though
                    most big winners are white and from certain parts of the country.
                    I have nothing against white folks winning...I just wish
                    the lottery commission would let some other people win also.

                      Imagine how much money we would probably be able to save if we practiced on a small scale what he (Brad) does on a large scale.

                      Oh the glorious vision of not having to live check 2 check 2 check..........
