So what would you do if you won a big jackpot; at least $1,000,000.00?  Would you disappear and LP never hear from you again, or just what?

      I'd stay since it would probably be with all the help I got here that I won!

      Good Luck!

        I'm sure I would leave long enough to get my affairs in order. (Ginger, Roxanne, Jennifer) LOL

        But I would eventually return when everything starts settling down again...

        This place is to much of a drug to ever quit, especially cold turkey...

        Eventually, I would have to access it on my laptop while I am journeying the whole of the world though, but I'd check in...

          Being a member of LP has nothing to do with how much I've won or lost playing the lottery games, it's about my interest in the games.  If I thought winning a lottery jackpot would effect my membership, I simply wouldn't mention it.  Lose or win I will always has an interest in the games.

              My vote is no. If I win a jackpot, I wouldn't retire at all even at LP.

                I alway thought the statement "I'm leaving Lottery Post" was a bit strange.  How does one actually leave? 

                This poll implies that people come here with the sole purpose of somehow using Lottery Post as a way to win a jackpot.  So, if you win the jackpot, it's "mission accomplished", and you can go on your way.

                Maybe there's a few people with that mindset, and there's nothing wrong with it, but I think of Lottery Post as a place for people with a common interest to hang out and share ideas.  I don't think winning a jackpot makes you suddenly stop being interested in the lottery.  If anything, if I won, I think my interest would be at least as great, if not greater.

                I can't imagine someone who loves playing slots never playing again if they won a big slots jackpot.

                  No, and I'd tell them (you) I won.

                  The beauty of that is nobody would believe me anyway, so I guess I'd have to contact Todd and have him Fed/Ex me an LP.Com hat to wear when I go to pick up the check, with all cameras on me....

                      That is a brilliant idea! Can you imagine the lottery organizers, with practically have steam shooting out of their ears because they're forced to deal with "Lottery Post"?  LOL

                      For those who don't know what I'm talking about, most state lotteries hate Lottery Post.  There are a few who are a joy to work with, and to which this does not apply, but the majority hate the free-flow of information and the fact that there can be (*E-GADS!*) criticism of their games.  In their vision of a perfect world, Lottery Post would not exist, so having to deal with their jackpot winner wearing a big "Lottery Post" logo would send them into a tailspin.

                            Well, I'm not a big fan of Dawn Nettles, because ALL she does is criticize the lottery.  Not to mention that she accused me of being a fraud and accused me of working with the lotteries.  After I saw that, I realized that if Dawn Nettles was talking about you, then she's criticizing you.  She hasn't a nice thing to say about anything, and when all someone does is criticize, they are normally accurate only about 50% of the time.

                              i don't like her either.i remember you discussing that here a while back in the news section.texas was trying to cheat their players with the texas lotto game.i think they finally got rid of the bonus ball or something because the players were raising cain.then the issue of computerized draws came up too i think.they finally switched the lotto back when sales got real bad......
