How does the crowd you hang out with effect you tracking your lottery wins/losses?  Are you in a pool?

He will speak for himself but I tihnk he means to be  in the CROWD that picks the winning combinations - lol!

    Oh I get it, isn't that the old "Homer Simpon's theory of let someone else do it"?  You hang with a crowd or  pool and someone else in the crowd will pick the numbers and check the tickets.

    I've always believed if you want something done, do it yourself and you can be sure it gets done.

          This is why I don't play scratch offs.  The scratch off industry is too easy to get out of paying up for their own foul ups.  So what it was a misprint. I say they should still have to honor that payment.  Maybe next time they will work harder not to let it get out of their control!!!!

            I was going by the theory that we become more like those that we are around (dogs look more like their owners - or maybe its the other way around... warm water cools to room temp... everything moving toward equilibrium)... hence my thought that I should be around those who win more/come close more.  ... and not participating in any pools (potentially too messy for my taste)

            And my tracking my own?  Thus far its pretty easy.  8$/week spent 0$/week won = 8$/week 'invested in the education of our youth'

              I read the article that was on MSN.com The Mass. lottery says that there were 2200 misprinted lottery tickets.My question is:IF YOU KNEW HOW MANY TICKETS WERE MISPRINTED,WHY DIDN'T  YOU RECALL ALL OF THE TICKETS SO THAT THIS WOULDN"T HAPPEN?HOW LONG WERE YOU GOING TO CONTINUE SELLING THE FLAWED TICKETS?

               

              PAY THE MAN HIS 1,000,000 DOLLARS.IT WILL BE GOOD P.R.

              Thank you, thank you. You should be a lawyer, good argument and I agree with you all the way.

              They KNEW there where misprinted tickets out there, so what did they DO to rectify the situaltion?

              Wait for some poor sap to come in and think they are a winner and say to them, Sorry Sucker.

              Or take a more pro-active roll and recall the tickets. Oh, but wait, if they do that they will lose money on the other million of tickets not misprinted. 

              They should have a better way of handling this situation and at least WARN the public as to what is going on.

                There has been enough of such cases over the years that the public should consider itself WARNED.
