Transparency worked so well in the non anonymous states Tipton won in, didn't it?

It's a myth.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any. So many systems, so many theories, so few jackpot winners.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

    I'm nosey AND transparency.  Nice to know another Eddie Tipton isn't winning.

    Transparency was very important when states started their lotteries, but jackpots were much lower then and times changed. As for Eddie, could he get away with claiming via trust in an anonymous state?

      I completely agree. Another Eddie Tipton could be rigging the system right now and none of the "transparency!" crowd or the rest of us would know it.

        Don't they usually release the name of the Trustee of the Trust?  Maybe a reporter will do a FOIA request and get more info.  Cool

        Wink  It is no ones business . FOIA request.... What a joke

            Eddie was an IT guy who rigged computer drawings in half a dozen states, dude. Wink Have you never read about this?

            He got away with it for years because he passed the info to friends rather than claiming prizes himself. If he had stuck to that plan instead of trying to claim a big one by himself, he'd be on a beach somewhere right now.

              Why is it a joke?  The media does it ALL THE TIME to get info for stories.

                hmmm...

                 

                great question buy low.

                i think each state should have to:

                -Share the store location i always believe that, Hurray!to give others hope etc., at the store. ya know

                along with:

                 

                -AGE range, if not exact age, age-range 

                -intials, or just 1st name with location is good enough for me, and age range.

                 

                I am happy TN. won, it's been a while, so i hope some 1 who REALLY really need this cash won.

                 

                congrats and good luck to all who play their lotteries.See Ya!

                What difference does it make what age or age group the winner is??  As long as they are over 18 to legally purchase the ticket it doesn't matter!!

                Also, why is it better for someone that is broke wins rather than someone that has millions?

                  I Agree!

                  And even giving the name of the store should be the owner's prerogative. If all that stuff about people stalking winners is true, knowing the name and location of the store selling the ticket will be the first place they'll look.
