Most people would quit the first time they won, but it seems like this guy just likes to play lotto. Curious to know how many sets of numbers he plays everytime.

      "Most people would quit the first time they won"

      Do you have any real statistics to back that up or are you just making a wild guess?

      Maybe you can explain the relevance of your opinion when the rest of us know for a fact that Bozeman didn't quit after his first big win.

        Aha! An admission! So your goal is to ruffle people's feathers and to be argumentative for argument's sake? I believe that. I get that about you LottoMetro, and see your snarky responses to other LP members all over the place.

        As for the issue of winning, quantity is what matters. Time played is another measue of quantity on a different scale. The statistical results play out either way. Take your average person age 25 and the average person age 65, and see who has the most lifetime expenditure on the lottery.

        Now finish your assignment.

        I'm surprised you're actually debating player age, time factor and quantity of wins with people who buy an occasional QP and want to discuss "which state will hit the jackpot".

          Yes BKStacker, i have real statistics. All 5 of my neighbors said one and done, win and sin. No more lotto for them. Would it make it better if i put some people.

            I always said I would quit if I won millions but now, after getting into the gaming/guessing part of it (and if I won less than Gloria level money), I might be tempted to see if I could do it again.  Just from a game perspective.  There is always that challenge dangling there and I find it hard to resist a challenge. It is kind of like when people wonder (in other areas) if you are just a "one hit" wonder....and you want to prove them wrong...that is was not just a fluke.

            But if I won a second time and it was public, I think the risk of people trying to get to me because they think I cracked the code, would go through the roof.

                I asked the relevance of stop playing when the story is about a player who won the lotto twice. It's no big deal to me if you and your five neighbors can't understand the story isn't about you or them.

                       I would continue to play, but w/ Gloria level money as you put it LOL, I would quit.

                      Come to think of it w/ that kind of cash you'd be too busy managing it to be playing.

                        Yeah, it depends on the amount.

                        If he won $10M previously, he probably got a few million cash after taxes. That's not "life changing" but mainly privides security for himself and his loved ones.

                        Sounds like he didn't change his lifestyle much, which is smart with that amount. He continued to play the lottery as usual. After all, what's a few hundred a year for lotto fun when you're set for life?

                        And as for the annuity on this $3M win, just because of his age, it's most likely not just for him, but for someone else held in trust. Another +1 for him.

                          Jon D, yeah I drop almost a G a year now so w/ a base JP I would still play at the same level.

                            It's hard to get statistics on just jackpot winners since there are so few of them compared with the total number of people playing the lotteries.  A sampling of lottery players would include mostly losers who don't think like winners.

                            "A sampling of lottery players would include mostly losers who don't think like winners."

                            I read where 99.999996% of all PB and MM players will never win a jackpot, but I guess that doesn't mean much to some of our new wana-be-expert LP members. Unless someone was stalking a jackpot winner, nobody would know if they continued to play or not. So basically we have opinions from members who never won a jackpot saying they won't play again if they win.

                              I never saw where winning a life changing jackpot means a person must change their lifestyle. It's obvious Mr. Bozeman enjoyed playing the Lotto game; where is it written he must quit because he won a jackpot.

                              There is nothing wrong with the "I would quit" opinions either, but there is a big difference because Bozeman is speaking from a real experience.
