How about the PB winner in Idaho - the guy working in Golds Gym. Not exactly a high wager there. The Air Force guy in New Mexico?

Me thinks your selective memory filter is working over time. That plus you inability to research data on the web.

    P.S. The rich get richer, because they are rich.  Apply the logic in reverse, the poor get poorer. Any target is a prime target.  Its the fickle finger of fate.  Get used to it or go to another planet.

        JoeinPa, what you are suggesting is that these big jackpots have eyes and that it was determed by someone to make only the rich or the well-off to get richer. I don't know about the other States, but most of the winners here in Maryland have claimed only spending appoximately $3-$5 when they have gone to claim their prizes, and only an extreme few of them I would have put in the "well-off" catogory.

        I think that the winning is random and luck plays a big part in it. Good luck on your next purchase of tickets.

        Yes I don't believe in spending a whole wad of money for lottery tickets and do follow that example of spending only enough to be in the game. It's annoying standing in line behind people who whip out a long list of mostly numbers for the pick 3 or 4 and spending all that money just to win maybe a  couple hundred at the most. I make my transactions quick and simple and ask the clerk for only 1 big ticket When they look at me befuddled I say 'only 1 ticket will win anyway'.

          If you are referring to me,I don't have time to spend researching all kinds of things in front of the web. I only know what comes across my ears. By the way an Air Force guy would be most likely to have a financially stable future without the lottery anyway,so maybe then the gym guy may be more deserving. I just think that my life has been so hard,the kind similar to a celebrity Before they made it,living in a car etc. that the only sensible thing would be to hit the lottery one day and make up for all of it.

                If the Lottery worked that way then a lot of people would be WINNING  but unfortunately the LOTTERY doesn't care whether your Rich or Poor it's just the Luck of the DRAW.

                  Some people have better luck than others in general also.

                    JoeinPA1, let's face it, you got to be in it to win it.  When the jackpot is really high people that don't usually buy a ticket will splurge and buy a couple.  The machine doesn't know if you're rich or poor, all it knows is that someone bought a ticket.  No sympathy here.

                    It is better to open your eyes and say you don't understand, than to close your eyes and say you don't believe.
