what i havent mentioned is that one year onmy vacation, i decided to make a list of small towns that won jackpotz in texas. i did this because it seemed strange to me that , out of large amounts of tickets being sold in dallas and houston as well as san antonio and fort worth................it seemz prettie astronomical that someone would win in a town with a population of 1700 -8000...........over and over repetitively, across all 5 corners of texas, so................

i actually went to the winning storesz and propped my hood up under the pretense of "having vehicle problemz" and,

counted traffic on a wed, thurs and friday.

which, i saw a total of 10-15 people go into one jackpot store i believe the actual count was 14, anywayz, 14 people from 7am to 7pm a 12 hour stretch on a "friday"

so, how did they win? the store i worked at we had no less than 3000 customers on fridayz every hour, the police had to escort an employee to the bank for dropz.

and they never sold a jackpot ticket and this is a major city in texas.

so, the other city i visited, population 5000, they had 61 customerz for a 12 hour stretch

on a friday in "july" and they had previously sold a "jackpot" winner.

my question is, ho is it those small communities who have no traffic, no population, no nothing,..............how is it that they come up with winners most of the time?

as opposed to large cities with millions a day spent on lottery? i understand the probability of this happening sayz yez, but it does not sayz most of the time, see?

and i would go into these stores and buy tickets and would not win a penny?

maybe....................hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    the laws of probability can be so harsh on the human soul sometimes,randomness can be a kind fellow sometimes but most of the time we just don't get picked and we feel neglected and shunned.....

      Enerceptorr,

      I find that pretty interesting.  Most winners in IL Lotto and Little Lotto are from the Chicago Metro area which accounts for close to 25% of the state's population.  The number of winners is consistent with the population.

      What you are describing is not "normal" in any sense of the word.  I give you a lot of credit for going to the lengths that you did in your detective work.  It smells like fish that's been left on the countertop for 5 days!

      Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

        enterceptorr,

        You must have a lot of free time on your hands.  Are you saying that you picked out a store somewhere and sat outside counting people for 12 hours?!?  With your hood propped up for 12 hours?!?  Sounds far-fetched to me, like you are just looking for ways to try to convince people about your "lottery-rigging" messages.  I don't think you've been away from the forum for 12 hours straight any day recently, so I'm wondering how you remotely input your messages.  Very strange indeed.

            if this is the truth it seems like maybe they are spreading the winnings out from one corner of texas to the next in order to insure that all parts of the state are winning,that would be more consistent with the scratch offs in my opinion........

              The fish is starting to stink more and more...

              A couple questions...If you were outside with your "disabled" car, how did you know how many people were buying what kind of lottery tickets unless you were taking an exit poll?

              and 2, if you were inside the stores watching the lottery sales during that time why didn't the management consider you suspicious for loitering near the lottery terminals for such long periods of time?

              Around here you would have been politely escorted out of the store by the men in blue (or the men in white) after about 45 minutes of this stalking....unless you convinced them you were a college student doing a thesis on lottery purchases in TX...in which case the "disabled car" story would not have been necessary.

              Next vacation try Yellowstone.

                  Before MegaMillions came to Ohio, Ohioans would travel to a Michigan truck stop (not even a town) on RT23 just north of the boarder to buy BigGame tickets when the jackpot was over $80M.  Normally, that location didn't sell many tickets and mostly served trucks and few cars with gas, but when the jackpot was up, they had to hire extra clerks just to sell lottery tickets and they didn't have enough space for all of their lottery customers to park.  They were featured in a Columbus T.V. news article and it was said their customers increased more than 10x when ever the BigGame jackpot went over $100M, so the number of tickets sold depended on the jackpot size.

                        Yeah there is really good fishing in Yellow Stone, perfect since this sounds a little fishy!

                        That would be an interesting poll though? I'd like to see those kind of stats, that would help alot!

                        Any volunteers?

                            Reminds me of when you came back to school in September and the teacher asked you to write an essay, "How I Spent My Summer Vacation"...and you had nothing to write so you came up with the best fiction you could. 

                             "That's good, little Jimmy...you get an 'A'....now tell the class what you really did."
