Considering lowered cash options, computerized drawings,  and a few other things,  let's do some goof tabloid type headlines for some "future" lotteries, maybe something like:

Indiana man hits Powerball, takes annuity not cash option, he owes them $650,000 a year!

Thud

Mega Millions matrix goes to 200 pick 5 and 200 Mega Number- someone hits on a QP, investigation to follow. Lottery official heard to say, "No one can ever hit this" on recorded memo.

    I guess I'm not in a very creative mood today, but I was thinking about all the articles we read about people's lives being destroyed by the lottery. How about...

    Tampa, FL

    Steven Smith, a 43 year old mechanic, who won $50 million last April playing Florida's 6/53 Lotto game was caught mowing his lawn on Sunday. He seems to be leading a normal life and is still married to the same woman. He hasn't been arrested or gone broke and his children are not on drugs.  The FBI and the IRS announced today that a thorough investigation will be conducted.

          (AP) - Bill Gates wins $500 milllion Mega Millions Jackpot - Bill Gates won the huge Mega Millions Jackpot Wednesday after buying all 175,711,536 different possible number combinations. "I had all my employees buy tickets in all of the different  Mega Million states in order to get all of the combinations in before the drawing - but it's been well worth it!", Mr. Gates said.  He later admitted, "I had the entire plan laid out in an Excel spreadsheet but I almost wasn't able to get the information to all the employees buying the tickets - darn blue screen of death popped up on me.  Thank goodness for backups!"
