Have you ever solicited jackpot winners for a share of their earnings for yourself or for a charitable cause or just to get the $$$$$$ back you invested in the big one and did not win.  LOL.  Just curious and I do not think this has ever been asked as a question/poll/discussion, etc.

      Never ever ever have.  Never ever ever will.  Even if it was someone close to me, I wouldn't ask.  If they want to give something to me, they will, and I will graciously accept.  If not, why make them uncomfortable and maybe even ruin our relationship by giving them cause to want to avoid me?

        that is is exactly how I feel.  Friendship is more important than money.  Very nice to meet u LuckyLilly.

          Never even thought about it.  Once a person is old enough to be on their own, even if they are family there is no reason for them to hound any one for money, that kind of behavior would make me think they were on drugs and not safe to have around.

          Fact is this idea sounds like the logic of someone on drugs.

            You mention getting the $$$$$$ back you invested in the big one and did not win.

            If you were playing Blackjack in a casino (or any other game) and saw someone make a nice little score would you follow them to the cage when they cashed out and ask them to get you even?

            What's the difference? 

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

            Lep

            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.

              Nope, not on drugs, never even drank alcohol.  Just curious.  You hear about all of these winners wishing they could have remained annonymous and every relative and friend crawls out of the woodwork and everywhere else for a piece of the cake. Goof

                Never been to a casino and have only played blackjack at home with friends.  That is why I play the same amount each time I play, so when the big jackpot comes around, I am NOT tempted to look at how much more money I spent trying to increase my odds of winning when only one set of numbers will win anyway.  Just curious if any LP members ever asked a winner for a share of a jackpot for whatever their reason(s).  And I do not think I have ever seen this question posted.

                 

                What if an absolute buffoon won the jackpot and was just blowing the money.  Would you intervene  (since they are giving it away anyway) and put the money to some good use?  Just curious?
