        I feel your pain.  Bash  Everytime someone wins, I wonder, "Why Not Me?"  I'm a good person, and I can use the money wisely.  Lady Luck just hasn't smiled on me yet.

          It's great to hear a story of a person who picked his own numbers.

            Bigmouth Kina's actions pale in comparison to the Convenient store clerk in my city who handed the State lottery officials the video of the winner of a $52 mil jackpot which they aired ( for crying out loud) after less than 45 days in a State where you have a full year to claim.
            I went pass that store to get an eyeball of this clerk, and yeah- his a weird one, shifty eyes as hell.

            I Agree! Seems like that could and should be against the law.

              The article mention that the winners are required to release their names, but they are not required to do a news conference. Does anyone know if this is only limited to doing an interview in front of a mdia, or if it also includes taking picutres of the winners. And if it applies to the rest of the states that is inluded in the lottery.  This is something I always wanted to know since only a few states reuires you to remain anonymous.

                  This is California Lottery Rules, although speaking to a woman from the lottery l was told that even though your name is eventually released you can form a Trust before claiming your prize whereby you get a pretty smart attorney who knows how to shield your identity from public by putting up all kinds of firewalls so that by the time a few months have passed- no one is interested in finding out who won what & when because a new jackpot has rolled around.
                  I was also told that the smaller the jackpot, the least interested they are in your story, its the big ones that draw attention.

                    I'll have to make a note of

                    "He was the only winner in the Oct. 23 drawing that got all six numbers. He selected the numbers himself." 

                    since that always comes up when players are talking about QP verses self picks.

                    Self pick doesnt always work. God only knows for how many years this dude has been playing the same numbers.

                      Doesnt matter. In certain Regions of the US your personal numbers are your best bet.  In other words "QP" can sometimes be a Quick Joke and when U nothing. Doesnt matter how long he played his own combination, IT WON.....;....))LurkingDance

                        aint against self-pick. I self-pick too and I do agree with you. but when you hear stories like the guy form NC who won $400 millions from

                        quick-pick and it ONLY was his 2nd time time playing the lottery, it's just unfair for slef-pickers people. what i'm saying is I dont hope too much on

                        self-picking method. That's why I mix my numbers with some quick picks

                          That is just wrong and that clerk should have been fired.

                              I notice that you seem to have a real hangup about lottery store video. I don't think it's such a bad thing.

                              How many stories have we heard where jackpot winners didn't know they won until they saw themselves on TV and then looked for their tickets to check. Or the guy that was ripped off by the clerk, was told he lost, until he saw himself on TV and that initiated the investigation where he got his rightful prize.

                              Sure, clerks do shady things from time to time, but as for lottery store video being released, I doubt the clerk has anything to do with it. The store is probably contractually obligated to provide the video to lottery officials, if it's not theirs to begin with. The clerk is just the cashier that lets them behind the counter as required. That's it. The decision to publish on TV is also out of the clerk's hands, the lottery decides that.(albeit partly to find a winner, and mostly for marketing purposes)
