Anyway Looks like someone wealthy won the $975,000 little lotto in Illinois last night. Northbrook is a very wealthy suburb of chicago. Lots of 500K+/yr salaries up there :( Down to $100,000 again

Well......... i'm gonna win and that's all there is to it! :D

      That's the beauty of the lottery.

      Ok nevermind that the rich can buy more tickets...but at its base level, most everyone can scrape together $1 for that dream.

          i'm going to tell you what i think happens......

          the wealthy players in places like that play a lot of their own numbers and play them until they hit.they have the cash to put out to make it happen....

              that's right whomever won picked there own numbers it wasn't a q pick he may have only bought one ticket and he might have wheeled his picks for a fortune.

                I would like to believe its a housekeeper or groundskeeper that won it and just so happens to live in the Northbrook locale as a livin staff member! that would make for a nice twist!

                  It could be a retired person on fixed income that's lived in Northbrook for decades.

                    well someone won it AGAIN last night. But at least this time it was in the City so chances are 50/50 that they were average income/ loaded

                     

                    Megaball got hit too :(   I really want one of those nights where i'm jumping up and down freaking out because i just won't millions :D   Can you imagine the feeling you'd get, it would probably come close to a heart attack for me even at 25 yrs/old lol i don't think my heart could take it, i think my stomach would drop through the floor haha.  

                    Well......... i'm gonna win and that's all there is to it! :D

                      I was gonna say it might be the maid.

                        I can relate to the begrudging feeling of hearing how some millionaire hits a big one, but see this as a reality check. Don't let it lock you into a mindset that could potentially keep you from being rich yourself. As Nick Danger (of Firesign Theatre fame) says... "I hate rich people and their stupid problems..." heh heh.

                        I figure if I were to become rich I wouldn't become an elitist snob, at least I sure hope I wouldn't. There's always going to be someone who 'needed to win' more than you or I when you get right down to it . Being poor is no more or no less a virtue than being rich.

                        I guess what irks me more is those who win big and really have no idea of the value of their money. Money is an energy that can remain abstract or be converted into goods and services and when I hear something like "Well, I guess me and the missus will take a vacation or two.." after winning 150 million or so, I moan out loud.

                            I don't hold a grudge on rich people winning because if I had a lot of money I'de play more too. More money more chances, seems like more rich people should win.

                            I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!
