I guess this evening's Mega Millions win can put to bed once and for all the conspiracy theories about the state lottery "jacking up the big jackpots around holiday time".

It's rediculous to think that the lotteries could precisely control the jackpots around holiday time, but it's nice to have the actual proof.  Hopefully the topic won't surface again next year.

Congrats to the latest Mega Millions multi-millionaire!

    so, if they cant prcisely control the jackpots, what are they doing with the info they use to give a person the results one 2nd after the numbers are drawn?

    the amount of people played and the amount of losers as well as the amount of winnerz

    all this info is known one 2nd after the draws, so, i say if they can manipulate this info its also common practice to manipulate the jackpot .

    todd, i want u to go to any store and ask for the results paper from the machine.

    and i want you to take it home and "stare at it for a long time"

    and as you stare at it, ask yourself this..........."how do they keep themselves fro manipulating this info, even if it means the state would lose a million dollars a minute?" how? if they know "before the draw" what numbers are "not" played, how are they "stopping themselves " from utilizing this info for the "better of the state"?

    let me put it this way,

    if i worked at the lottery and i knew in advance which numbers are not played, i would have those numbers used for the draw. because no one played them. and all the money would go round the buddy table and all my friends and buddies would be in on the same thing.

    its more like a network todd. its not one person. when dope pushers sell dope, its not one person is it? its a network of criminals. they all know the same thing and they all watch one anothers back. until one gets busted, then that one topples the whole unit with his or her written statement

    the same as all adults tell the children that santa brings presents.

    its a network. we all lie to the kiddies. we are all in on the same lie. and theres a lot of us.

    the difference being, is, the population is not "aware' of the "results"

    manipulation. because the population has not been informed.

    and, as "comptroller", why the blazes would "i" worry about it if some one was bringing 90,000 dollars a day to my backdoor in cash?

    i tell you what todd, if i was being paid to shut up, i would take the money and shut up. and this is my word to you and all the rest. i would. i would not open my mouth for nothing. until the  money stopped and no one paid me anymore, then my mouth would open.

    and now im opening my mouth todd cause i dont work for that c-store anymore and i can tell everyone about the lotto and scratchoff scams i participated in and witnessed. i dont care anymore.

        3 years ago with my little PC I used to cover 10,000 combinations....all i had to do was put the winnning number on one line and with the conditioning formula i set up I could tell which ticket hit 3 or better in no time...the only thing taking about 3 minutes to do was page down,,,,,I'm sure they can do it with-in a minute of the draw if they have all the technology,,,it doesnt prove anything.........

                The last thing I would EVER say on a forum like this is that " I participated " in a scam or manipulated the lottery.  It goes to show you that the enterceptor is not thinking clearly. Federal or state oversight  "people" can find out what your real name and address is and come knocking on your door. That was dumb !!!!!

                    remember. the powerball jackpot is coming up on $100 million. don't say that jackpots don't get big around the holidays. plus, the mega millions jackpot has 9 rolls to go. that can produce a pretty nice jackpot in time for xmas, and add another roll or two to that and you can have a nice new year's jackpot.

                    I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                      $110 million for 27. Nov. 2004. could we see a nice xmas jackpot? it was at that level at the same time two years ago. also remember that there is a drawing on xmas day again this year. could we have a new record jackpot on xmas day?

                        I dont think so. For it to reach the $300 million mark like it did two years ago, it will need another 5 rollovers (or 6 draws including this saturday). So taking that into consideration the jackpot will be around $300 million on Dec 15th. It is highly unlikely it will rollover all the way until Dec 25th.

                          Maybe the conspiracy-minded people at the lottery are trying for a big Hanukkah jackpot?

                            The jackpot was also big in July when the grandma from Lowell MA won. I don't know what any of this shows except the jackpot gets bigger and sometimes it gets bigger in November and December. 

                            But I am curious, how much extra money is involved by having a big jackpot around Christmas?

                                On the flip side, during a four month period this year, the Powerball jackpot never reached $100 million.
