Glad he's happy with what he is and doesn't want to change.  I am confident that if he keeps that attitude he will be a lottery success story.

    Too me, being a "blue collar worker", is all about attitude, not the job you are doing.  Living and loving life is another trait. He fits the description to a "tee".

      Great for Richard Loveless and his family on hitting the lottery.  This article is so interesting for many reasons.  How his circle of friends also seemed to have good luck is quite odds defying.  I also wonder if he played this same line of numbers consistently or if he tried them for this draw.  Either way, love to hear stories of the humble winning.  I am so tired of the train wreck sorts we see on reality shows...money never seems to do them any good.  Wish all the best to the Loveless family.

      Slots and Keno..at the Casino...Keep me happy....and not so Mean-o.

        It's the odds that matter, not how many lines you get to play. The odds for 6/59 are roughly 1 in 45 million, so getting two lines gives you odds of 1 in 22.5 million for that $1 bet. Much better odds than MM or PB, but the jackpot is usually fairly modest. The odds for 2nd place are 1 in 3.75 million, which is only slightly better than PB before the recent change, but the prize starts at only 20 to 25k. It's not unusual for it to build to 200 or even 300k, but that's still well shy of the point where it's comparable to $2 for one line trying for the old PB 2nd prize.

          I agree!
