Nc is really a corrupt lotto , they taking pic 3&4 money, only playing a bunch of repeats, but on the other hand one man can hit 55 times prizes over 600 dollars, straight bull..

    I haven't won in scratch-offs in so long...wait, I have only won $4 in the past few months. That's playing MM, PB, and scratch-offs.

    Obviously, I'm buying the rejected ones.

        Trynsohard,

        The odds for getting one specific number remain the same. Those odds are not the same odds for getting a second specific number. The Lottery Commissions goal is to regulate, maintain, and control "statistical randomness", so that it remains as such. Meaning random. The point is repetition happens more than one would normally think it does.

          Ok guys, I shouldn't be gossiping but I did hear once from someone who worked in the 'building' ok, when I was cashing a $1000 scratch off. That the $20 ones in the machines have better luck than the ones in the store. I also have heard that, of course not all the time, but every 3 starting from the #1 on the $20's are better. I don't scratch anymore, but I used to. I used to always start with a brand new book, and if the first one didn't have I usually left it alone. Some people say the #'s in the 30's on the $10 scratch's are guaranteed.

          I don't know just some he said she said stuff.

            People are cashing other peoples' winning tickets for them because the actual winner has a lien against them. They then receive a cut of the payout and the true winner receives the rest.

              Store owners do that too. You can find anyone in any state willing to cash a winning straight win4 ticket for a percentage. The percentage varies etc

                Joan Ginther is the woman in Texas who has won the lottery multiple times.  There are numerous articles on her here at Lottery Post.  Some say it is fraud, others dumb luck.  And still others say that the fact that she has a PhD in Stats, plays a lot and uses publicly available info to hedge her bets has made her a multiple winner.

                  Her first win was Texas Lotto. Can't remember the amount, but it was a few million dollars. Then she went to work on scratchers using won money to buy lots of tickets.

                  So, dumb luck to start, then, power buying.

                    If Alice and company were smart, they would keep their OWN heads down as THEY are the ones that need to be investigated for lottery rigging.  It has ONLY gotten worse in the past 6 mos and WILL only get worse for us players. 

                     

                    INVESTIGATE NCEL NOW!

                      Yes, I agree, NCEL needs to be investigated more.  Especially the practice of ending scratch off games that still have 2nd and 3rd top prizes.  If an outsider would  do an audit on just the past 3-4 years for example, it might be eye opening to see how many games that were still popular, and good seller's that were pulled.  Their standard answer is that they pull games to make way for the new ones, which come out every month.  Just last year, they pulled a game that still had at least 3 top prizes.   This flooding the stores with more and more losing& break even tickets, is getting way out of control. I'm surprised anyone is winning money on the scratch tickets to be honest; but I think the winning tickets (those over  few $100) are placed in certain areas also.

                       In the interview clip with Alice Garland, she said that she just thinks some people are luckier, not even acknowledging the fact that there is a ticket reselling scheme. She's not a stupid woman, just the head of a greedy cash machine called the NCEL Evil Smile

It's strange though I was thinking the other day that their sure a lot of winners in N.C! If I could get to NC I would go their to buy my Lottery Tickets!

                          Make sure to research the area of winners, because it seems to be pockets that move.....and they don't update their winners board often for that reason...just sayin'....

                            I agree, for those who think that NC is a great place to win, if you could take a look at their "Lucke Zone" forum loaded with complaints from players buying up to 10 tickets in a row, and if they are lucky, maybe getting a break even win, or just a little more, you might reconsider LOL  and this is with $10, $20, and $30 tickets also.
