I must add this to this thread.

Saint Anthony is the patron saint of lost things, and there's a prayer:

"Saint Anthony, Saint Anthony, please look around

there's something lost that must be found." 

Next time you can't find something try it, you might be amazed. (You don't have to be Catholic).

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.

    I would split it 50/50.

    I would too.

     

    I hope if I ever lose a winning ticket, you find it.... and if you lose one I find it..

      So, they mail you the tickets you bought online?

      When you walk into your local lottery agent or retailer to purchase lottery products whether they are scratch tickets or instant tickets or terminal tickets or online tickets.  The function of the state lottery terminal which is connected through the internet to a system is to verify winnings and produce terminal tickets.  When you want to play tickets from the terminal which is connected to the internet the ticket produced is called an online ticket.  All games produced through the lottery terminal are online games.

      I personally do not buy tickets from internet websites since the company betslips went out of business.  I choose to buy from my local retailer or not buy at all.  When the weather is nice like sometime this summer I like to travel to Vancouver, Washington to try Mega Millions online tickets.-weshar75

        With that attitude, you will NEVER win the lottery.

        Now let's see if I reverse-jinxed you. 

        You are probably right about the fact that I will never win the lottery.  But please do not eat my crabby patty.  Get your own!-weshar75
