Why do some people feel the need to insult other lottery post members, for having an opinion that is different from their own.    FYI the $208 million PB lottery was won  in a Wisconsin store that has one previously, the store is located on Miricle Mile, where several stores have sold winning jackpot tickets.

Sorry, I thought you were stating as a fact rather than as your opinion "the same stores repeatedly sell winning jackpot tickets".

I read the LP News article too.  http://www.lotterypost.com/news/139681.htm

"The winning ticket was sold at Ma and Pa's Grocery Express in Fond du Lac along the so-called "Miracle Mile." South Main Street earned that nickname because several stores there sold multimillion-dollar tickets in the 1990s."

I took this to mean that other stores in that area had also sold some winning tickets in the 90s, not that most of the winning jackpot tickets in Wisconsin were sold by stores in that area.

    Yep, of course Mega Millions is rigged. It's rigged to produce few winners and many losers, and rigged so that NO system can beat it. If a system could beat a lottery game, the lottery would cease to exist. Systems are only created to make the games more fun for some players; in the end, it's all luck of the draw.

      I really don't think you HONESTLY believe what you just said. Don't tell me about the odds. Yes on any given draw you can ABSOLUTELY get beat because of the astronomical odds.......however it is impossible for an honest system to beat you every single time when as YOU suggested the person is spending $1000 a draw.....and here is the key the person has cornered a group of numbers in a pattern. At some point that player should hit the 2nd prize.

      Don't tell me different....because that would be utter nonsense.........do the math....you cannot defy mathematics.

      An honest system CAN be beat over SEVERAL drawings!

       

      Has 20 or 30 people ever bet on the same 5 numbers that go drawn?....why is that not the case?...figure it out!....it's all about the PAYOUT FOR 2ND and 3RD PRIZES.

      It's that simple.

      I think the real question would be what game do you think IS honest and why aren't you winning it?

        There was a press release on the Florida web site and the winner was quoted as saying "I used to think these games were all rigged." 

        Obviously he wasn't too concerned, because he continued to play and won.

          That's my point....I am not here preaching to stop playing because I think it is rigged......We are playing to defy the odds......rigged or not. I PERSONALLY prefer to think it is rigged to produce the lowest 2nd and third prize winners and it is random in that sense. Heve you ever seen the disparity between the amount of people who win 2nd prize and the 3rd prize......you go from 5 or 6 people to at least a few hundred.......why has not a few hundred people won the 2nd prize at any one drawing?

          I am just pointing out the obvious rational questions to consider......I am NOT telling anyone to stop playing.......I certainly will not......but to play as if this game is TRULY random would be like denying the fact I am human.

          On this last draw one of my tickets got 3 of 5....3,5,11,36,55 +20.......the rest were duds. Someone who bets a $5.00 here or a $2.00 there will not see the brazenness of the game's oddities.....so I can't help the fact that I can see it.

          There is no way a system can evade a group of numbers OVER a SERIES of drawings.....that is my point.

           

          Anyway........perhaps someone will be fortunate this Friday....hopefully from Maryland. We have had a few 2nd prize winners recently.  :)

            I Agree!  That pretty much sums it up...

            The reason that there is a huge disparity between second and third place number of winners is simple-

            It is "easier" to match 4 of 6 than it is to match 5 of 6.

              I'm glad that MM isn't rigged. It's all about luck. Sometimes very high numbers occur and sometimes low numbers occur.

                  its just a matter of whose is doing the driving!!!

                  Anyway, there is a game that some of us play here called the MM & PB challenge.  It gives you 15 white balls and 5 Bonus balls, and with that you get to show your best hand.....Now there are basically a handfull of us that play the game regularly, and what we don't have is a 5+0 and a 5+1 winner amongst us.

                  what do you say if we give you a chance to prove your cornered number theory in MM and PB using 15 WB's and 5 BB's....and you line up some numbers and post them.....

                  You can play the game from now untill the end of the year,  and then we can measure the results then,,,,

                  Even Albert Einstein and Sir Issac Newton had to prove there logic.....
