Congratulations 🎉🎉 but just like I figured never in Detroit that's how I know the lottery rigged it's never in a poor area you have to ride 3 hours away just to have a chance,they know what area they sending those tickets to

There was also that story awhile back about the guy Who bought two $1 million dollar scratch winners from the Same Store in Dexter a couple years apart.

Even lots of small towns get those $4 million winners...Adrian got one...Gaylord got one...West Branch (if I remember) got one.

When I have been asked for a good strategy on scratchers I tell people that they are pre printed and to go to the store where they shipped the big winner otherwise you have no chance of winning.

    Don't quote me on the company, it was either IGT or Scientific Games.   Several years ago here (KY) they had a news story and showed the tickets being printed @ lightning speed, shrink wrapped in a plant in Georgia.   Then shipped to KLC for distribution.   Can remember the plant folks saying they have no way of knowing which tickets are winners, nor do they know where any of them go to.  KLC said they have no way of knowing where winning tickets are shipped either.   All purely by chance.

      I see you joined in 2015 so you are probably not aware of the LP story awhile back about Lottery Security in Indiana tipping off someone about where a big winning ticket was sent and how that person went to that store and bought out the whole pack and won.  They got caught of course or we would not have heard about it on here.

          you are absolutely right. I can't rem if it was the 2015 story or another similar story, but  At that time whichever company is responsible for sending out the tickets they know which batch has a large winning ticket and where it's going.  Which is one reason I do not play scratch off.  Hopefully I can locate the actual story and share .

            Looks wonderful - as long as its not too humid I am in -

            The only humidity I approve of is in a humidor.

            .. too humid? Where is your sense of adventure Kenny? You not all sweaty in the middle of the Colombian Jungle, plus that's what the ocean is for.

              Don't want to go back.

                  Right Kenny, but the point was the humidity, and even Arnold had to take a mud bath to get the better of this guy...

                            yep.

                            I know my dad say, each time, "Cassie, you're doing better winning multiple x(on 1 p4 number)so keep it up! 

                            Better odds, Cassie, for you, and he is right imo on that lol on Pick 4 that is. I do well,per year, but yea,

                             

                            CB $ CJ

                            Daddy always say, "Cassie, oh, the P-BALL or the mega $ millions is tonight, good. DON'T play ...

                             

                            rigged.

                            -Poor to very low income areas (urban) and or rural RARELY win, per drawing and no need for "1"singular man or woman to win hundreds of MILLIONS of $$$ 

                             

                            -When it's well over 100 million to 1 BILLION why not let (meaning the state) let a bunch win i.e.,

                            "dozens PER state win(when it's so high $$$)

                             

                            Cheersa million per person,

                             

                            or even 4 numbers with PB or with Mega Ball, then ALL are able to smile, live better!

                            So,

                            I agree, the MORE i thought about it, i really understand now, as i am older, upper 30s, i understand what DAD mean.

                             

                            I think he is right, but still CONGRATS to those who win.

                              I am glad he did not.

                              The man is not on "old man yet" that is a senior citizen over late 60s or so etc., but he is currently

                              a middle age man, 50, and prior win 39 or early 40s, so middle age,

                              he is middle age, so i can see why he said, NO.I would have too! Heck, i would even if i am 18 or 25 years old.

                               

                               

                              I DON'T TRUST GOV'T at all, really.

                              So,

                               

                              I would get LUMP SUM, also predicated upon,

                               

                              i am one who just DON'T trust our messed up gov't lately, period. So, this way i will have it ALL to myself, to invest, give homeless some RIGHT away,

                              help em get out of poverty + off the streets, and invest the rest, for myself,daughters etc., Yes Nodand that's it.

                               

                              I would feel better more secure, having it all to me, without fretting over  IF something goes wrong with gov't now a days,

                              Smiley my money shall be in my own possession, investments etc.al.,
