Not everyone lives become "Hell" because they won the lotteryUnhappy

Obviously his friends and family didn't respect him enough to stop introducing him

as a lottery winner.

Do you know anyone personally who has won? Can you definitively state that it would not or does not happen to everyone or that it would not happen to you? I get the impression that you theorize that your friends and family are better than others and it won't happen to you but until it does you have no idea. 

Truthfully, if you win $250 million, the likelihood that you will be known for anything other than that forever is slim, barring you using that money to invest or start a company that makes something ground breaking that makes you a billionaire.

    I just want to know why it is the same payout if you win the powerball only as it is if you have the powerball and one number.  Shouldn't the payout be higher for the extra number??

        I live in ny, and I have never won $10k playing the lottery. I rarely see anybody winning a jackpot in New York City. Long Island and Staten Island win the most jackpots. I feel that they need to win a lottery jackpot more than ever after being hit by hurricane sandy.

        A $32 million mega millions ticket was sold in Mineola, NY. for the Nov. 2nd drawing. That was less than a month ago.

          I think they tried it to see if they could get away with it, and surprisingly your the first person to question it.

              The New York lottery needs to spread those jackpots all over the state. I am tired of seeing Long Island winning most jackpots and second prizes.
