      I agree that he enjoys the spotlight. Maybe he likes getting his ego stroked over and over. This man didn't find a cure for a disease or run into a burning building.  He won money because he was very, very lucky.  Even if he did use a "system" as he claims, he's gone way past the braggart stage IMHO.  No, this isn't jealousy at all.  I've just seen his face too many times.  There are a lot of people who buy real estate, invest in the stock market, turn businesses into major chains, etc., who don't have special news stories about them all the time.  Personally I don't see anything wrong with it, but I find it boring.  I enjoyed reading Mr. Duke's story the first time and maybe even the second time on Lottery Post.

        I read on another link on LP that he is working on a number system. I say good luck to him on becoming a Billionaire.

           Good for him for winning, but it sounds like he'll never be satisified. If he gets to a billion he''ll want a trillion, etc... 

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

            Funny that you should mention this....

            I knew a man who had millions and he once told me that after the first 10 (this was about 15 years ago) it's all one big game.  It wasn't about the money.

              A guy I worked with in Las Vegas, always said, "You have to understand, for the really wealthy people money is just a way of keeping score."

                Unless you're in that mans shoes, you don't know how you'll adjust to winning that much money.  I don't blame him for milking his 15 mins of fame.

                  Hang around here for awhile and you'll find out that probably at least 80% of us want absolutely nothing to do with 'the 15 minutes of fame' a jackpot brings.

                  There's an entire encyclopedia of reasons.

                    Neither do I, although what Coin Toss wrote is true.  Most people want to be left in peace and stay anonymous if possible, but that doesn't apply to all winners.  I hope I wasn't misunderstood.  I was trying to say I didn't think there was really anything wrong with the attention he was getting, if that's what he wants.. just that I find it boring after the first 2 times.
