I wish I could forget about my ticket just once, then maybe I would hit it. I liked how she called herself an idiot though when saying "why don't that idiot do something" when she saw the news. The unemployed son who lives at home is the lucky one in this case, which just goes to show you that money cannot make you any more responsible, or educated to live on your own. I think Jackie blew too much of it on useless stuff, I mean REALLY useless. But that is her choice.

That is a problem with many of the lottery winners, their mansions become a haven for useless clutter. I would prefer as much space as possible, as opposed to useless junk that just sits around that I would not actually use. Also I could live very easily off of $20,000 a year, let alone $52,000. I am sure the overweight son in law would have given her millions if he had won...not. You can tell he is the lazy type who just wants to sit around and lounge, and get fatter by the day. Probably too lazy to even go out and buy a ticket.

Resentment does not bring you riches, personal gratitude and appreciation for what you have does. So yes, "stop pimpin' mama." Even if she does seem to be mentally unstable.

    Really enjoyed watching it...just wondering how many people wrote down the lottery combinations that won the big jackpots on the show and how many of us are planning on playing them.  Going to start playing 7-8-28-29-31-33 from now on, that's the combination that won the Army Vet Bob his $60 million.  lol

    Actually the odds of a repeat combination coming up is a lot worse than playing one that has yet to come up. So keep playing it lol. Let us know the results.

      Actually, I already have my shopping list almost completed lol!  I want several computers (all of which I can afford now but won't buy lol), several vehicles, 2 homes (about $200k in furnishings in the main home), about 5-10 nice suits and shoes (I have nice suits now but i'm talking Armani, Versace, etc lol!), state of the art TV's, and some other cheap stuff I always wanted but never bought.

      I don't want a helicopter or private jet, or boat, or any other super duper expensive piece of whatever.  The most expensive thing I would buy besides my home would be a Lamborghini Murcielago.

        The odds of any of the previous combinations coming up are exactly the same as the odds for any of the other combinations. For MM it's exactly 1 in 175,711,536 for each of the 175,711,536 combinations.

          Has the same set of numbers ever repeated in any jackpot game?

          (I kind of doubt it)

          Has the same set "jumped" from one jackpot game to another?

          (I kind of doubt that, too).

              "Has the same set of numbers ever repeated in any jackpot game?

               I believe RJOh recently said that  a 5 of 39 game has had 6 repeats during about 2700 drawings.

              "Has the same set "jumped" from one jackpot game to another?"

              I have no idea. Have any of the combinations you've played won a single time? In the game you played them in or any other game?

              The only reason that the combination that  was drawn in the last MM drawing is extremely unlikely to be drawn again next  time is because there are  175,711,535 other combinations. Any particular one of the  roughly 175,711, 360 combinations that has never won MM is also extremely unlikely to be drawn next time because there are 175,711,535 other combinations that are just as likely to be drawn.

              If you roll a die is there still a 1 in 6 chance of rolling a 6 even though somebody else rolled it earlier in the week and got a 6? Did any of those casinos  you worked in change the odds they offered based on the last few rolls at the  craps table? The only difference is that  lottery games roll dice with a lot more than 6 sides. The odds are always the same on every roll, but with more possibilities each possibility is less likely.

                I will not swear to it..but many moons ago when I got to play floridas lottery I use to keep up with her fantasy 5..I think there was a EXACT REPEAT in her pic 5..they are just sets of numbers..like pic 3 has 1000..you will get repeats and do..pic 4 has 10,000 you will get repeats and do..pic 5's have more combinations but you will get repeats..they will all work the same..

                  That's very true about dice, but there are only 36 possible combinations.

                  Now what if we tweak your example, take the next 15 rolls let's say, and look for that exact sequence of numbers to roll again- isn't that'w what we're doing with looking for sets of lotto numbers to repeat, (but on a much grander scale of course).  

                  The game I track more than other is illinois Little Lotto (5/39) I've tracked it every night for three years and have yet to see a repeater.

                  PS

                  Re: dice, there is a game called Barboo (or sometimes batbooth), very popular in illegal casinos in the Northeast - every roll is a "hop bet"- (one roll bet) - changes the odds drastically. 

                  Vegas casinos put it in for a very short time as an experiment, but  it didn;t rally catch on, was too confusing for the players. Ther were two shooters, andall bets went through the prop box in the middle of the layout.

                    i watched the show and did anyone else notice that when the men who worked at the post office and were bowling buddies turned over their ticket to sign it they also showed the address and phone number on there? i hope that wasnt a real number or they may have a nightmare of callers on their hands now. i recorded the show so ill watch it again to make sure im right but i think i saw at least the phone number on the back when the flipped it over. im sure A&E can edit it out next time if it was shown by mistake. i liked the show and i agree with the other post i want more episodes with other stories but alot of winners want to lay very low and not be on a tv show...

                      Yeah, I've wondered about winners appearing on such a show, too. Talk about not remaining annymous!

                      That girl in Tennessee in the town of 250 people is going to be getting hit on left and right- even if she is getting "only" $52,000 a year for life.  

                      We're not all that far from there, and in this area when a girl agrees to go out with a guy all too often the next thing the guy says is, "You don't mind driving, do you?" (means anything from no job, no car, to no gas money).  

                      As far as the phone, isn't there some kind of law (or at least a rule in Hollywood) about video broadcasts that a phone number is always a 555- XXXX? .

                      If I remember right, that started with an incident after a real number was shown and the person had to change it.

                        I caught only four of the stories: The bowling buddies , The Gal who scratched the win for life, The kelloggs lady, and the guy who invested wayy too much in his classic car addiction.

                        May I say I identified most closely with the bowling buddies. They valued family and had a good sense of keeping there feet on the ground whilst enjoying the fruits of their win! They were sensible and economically thrifty :)

                        The kelloggs lady had me rollin when she asked for her ex-hubbys phone number! Overall I didnt care for her attitude. Lavish her unemployeed son whilst criticizing other family members...Stressing over a party...She was too much drama for my taste...

                        The gal who invested in the local convenience stop was just downright adorable. She seems to stay implanted in the backwoods attitude and sometimes that keeps one humble. 

                        The guy that won on Thanksgiving truly did have much to be thankfull for, Unfortunately his ex wife got to be thankful too. She got a free ride off his fortune...go figure. Freedom has cost this man much...

                        Good show overall. Did anyone see the People article on the family from Oregon that won last years Powerball? That article was an eye popper as well...

                          Indeed, I've always wondered about winners who throw "lottery parties". Just a hunch but I figure that anyone invited to such a party would think they're being invited there to be cut in on a share of the winnings.

                          Granted, she worked with those people for 26 years, but she herself said the party sould give her 'closure'. Meaning? "Nice knowin y'all, threw you a party, adios?

                            Yes, I saw his reaction. How dare he expect anything -- unless he contributed to the 'kitty,' -- a dollar or two. He needed to get off his lazy butt and find a job, anything to put food on the table -- until the job market got better. We have all worked at jobs we hated...but reality being what it is...

                            1. You must eat

                            2. You must pay rent/a mortgage

                            3. You must pay bills

                            I became too emotionally involved: what arrogance, what pride! 

                            Finally, she came to her senses. She refuses to be an enabler; she is not going to let them use her.  It's her money, she should enjoy it without the guilt, and, most of all, she can truly sing the song: "It's My Party Now and I'll Cry If I Want To...You Would Cry Too If It Happened To You!" 

                            See Ya!-- Bye, bye!  When you win, may you glow as brightly as theSun Smiley

                              lol cointoss! you truly placed a spin on the true meaning of that ladies attitude- See ya , glad I dont have to be ya! She may well be able to toot her own horn now that she thinks money will make her a more independent woman. I personally believe, once a mom always a mom. You dont cut your kids out of your life as she soo eagerly did once she had thebig cash flow coming her way. Granted she raised them and gave them a roof, but I dont think she ever gave them quality time or attention. How could she, she was married more to her job....

                              To those who felt the need to judge the demeanor of the one son in law...remember, her own son gets a brand new car and never wants to aspire to work so long as his mamma has money coming in...Now who is the lazy relative? Sorry I dont have much regard for that son...
