Ok here is a question for you long time Lottery Post'ers... After a big jackpot has ended (like MM last night), does lottery play in general drop off or does it remain constant?  That is something that has puzzled me.  If I were horribly disappointed from over spending last night, do most just stop lottery play, thus 'hurting' the jackpots that are still in play? ( such as  now a smaller group playing PB so its jackpot will increase slower?)

Good question! I would think there would be a pause of a week or two before "normal" betting resumes. You could probably just examine

the past lottery results to see how quickly it took to pick up again.  Type

    objectively as can be stated, The comment of being a doubting Thomas speaks volumes of you Sirbrad, So allow us folks that sincerely do wish a winner well , that luxury.  Actually I enjoy newcomers  and find it refreshing that they can be welcomed here . Never hurts to be of good cheer

    I just speak the truth, and I have good reason to doubt he won. I have heard it before for years and no one ever showed any proof. If I won that much and I blabbed it all over the forums, and rubbed it in with some gansta slang, I would be posting a photo also as I did in the past when I won. Otherwise no one is going to believe you. No one intelligent anyway. I am just honest, and have no need to send superficial well wishes that I actually don't believe, and try and fit in with the other superficial crowd. Most don't actually care and they forget it once they log off. So you can stereotype all you want, I can also. But I just call it as I see it, and many others see it but are afraid to say it, hence all the pm's I get saying "you are right."

    But factual or not I can post whatever I want to just like everyone else. If you don't want to learn from it or don't like it don't read them. I think most agree though that unless you post proof it is kinda pointless to even say anything. And like I said mostly all new members have done the same thing before, and was just looking for attention and trying to rub it in. But they didn't win jack, nor did they ever prove it. That is all I am saying. I will congratulate them when I see a photo or them standing at the lottery office holding the check. What you call a doubting thomas I call being an intelligent, level-headed skeptic who does not believe everything he reads. I don't alienate new members, but it is usually them who post such things, not long-time members. I guess that is a coincidence? But there are some intelligent new members also as shown in this thread, so I am not discriminating against all new members.

      I wonder how long ,if ever , it will take to get that high again . Will it be MM or PB, even higher than that or close to it?

      I would say every 10 years or so!

        Sirbrad is right that newcomers are being silly when they make false claims of winning in order to save face.  The lies start building up, and real people can get caught into them.  Get someone willing to lie about winning multi times and having a system, and you've got the makings of a scam where real people lose real money when the odds were 1 in 0 of a 'pay out'. 

        If someone wants to come in here and say they won the second level, by all means put a scan of the ticket up so that folks know that Real People Do Win, and truly rejoice with them.  If a person won't, then folks are right to be skeptical, so that attention whores and scam artists aren't encouraged.  That's all.

        Iesha, indulge me for a second...if you won a second level ticket... lets say with a friend/relative who holds it or you won it alone, went to your bank and put in a security box today before posting the statement "I won"..According to your above statement I COULD fall into the category of being CONSIDERED a ,"attention whores and scam artists.. remember, because someone makes a statement doesnt mean its false until its proven by opinions on here. Pictures of lotto tix can be photoshopped....If that person making that claim is seeking that kind of attention AND ITS FALSE.....you know they will slip up again, then the option of ignoring the "scam artist" posts are all yours....Criticizing,condeming and complaining wont solve the issue..in my humble opinion

        Stay Positive, Believe and good things will come your way

          The let down will cut out some of the regulars for a few plays and then they'll rejoin the game.

          Beyond that most players have a buy in level. People jump in the bandwagon at different stages and of course the larger the jackpot grows as we've seen in recent times the more people join on. In this last instance even people that never played before. This was historic so everyone came out of the woodwork even 20/20 Barbara Walters was in an office pool!

            Do you think someone from lotterypost hit the jackpot? There was three winning tickets from three different state.

              Exactly, many have tried starting scams here in the past doing EXACTLY that and trying to sell systems. I try to provide awareness, and I get bashed for it. I guess I should just let some people be stupid and get ripped off. Like I said no good deed goes unpunished. When did you join? Ah, 2005....no wonder you sound aware and level-headed. Must be a coincidence. Not.

                    Ok and now in a moment of total transparency - I have no idea how to find out how many tickets were sold in total for a specific game (either PB or MM) I have looked on the site, and have tried searching but obviously I have no idea what words should be used in said search.

                    Can anyone please give me a clue? (clear would be best - ambiguous, while amusing for you, only muddies my already muddled mind)
