    You don't have to dream to have the feeling of winning a jackpot without actually winning.  I post winning numbers to my data files when I watch a drawings on TV or when I go to the websites to update my data files.  I never figured out how I did it, but one time I posted the winning numbers to both my data file and playing file and when I compared the two files I saw a match six in my play file.  I was shocked and happy for a few minutes until I checked my tickets and found the mistake.  A few months later I did match a 5of6, so I spend extra time rechecking my tickets, my data file and the website before heading to the store the next morning to get it validated and filling out the paper work. That haven't happen since, but if it did, I might fear I had made a mistake somewhere and I would spend a lot of time rechecking everything.

            i would fear being the subject of a mob hit,or that the government would tell me i owe back taxes from years ago.

            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.

              I've had that passing thought too. Maybe something like that has already happened, as in extortion. It very well could, and of course 99% outta 100% all lips are sealed, for fear of cement shoes.

              Hmm, if and when I win, I just may very well keep publicity as low as possible... meaning y'all will just have to think ole Maverick is still a poor NYC boy.

                    If you know what the rules are when you buy your ticket and one is the top prize is paid in an annuity, why would you fear hearing the same after you won?

                      I think he's afraid that the rules will change on him without his knowledge.

                        Even if its paid out in a lump sum, your still going to end up putting some of the money in an annuity.  What really stinks is that when its paid annually the state lottery is making  interest on your winnings.hahahaha.
