The shows are listed to be on until 2am. Not sure if they will be others, or the same one, but they all say "new."

      There were three separate one-hour reports, our cable guide said New, 2006, so I think they were filmed in 2006 but just now aired for the first time. 

      (Some were obviously file films from pre- 2006, one was about a Big Game winner, which is what Mega Millions used to be known as).  

      If I was tracking them right, every winner interviewed won on a quick pick. One woman talked about playing her numbers and having an extra dollar and asked for another ticket and that's the one that won it for her.

      They also interviewed a couple who won a progressive slot machine jackpot, and a Publisher's Clearing House winner.

      Two of the jackpot winners were involved in making movies about ghosts, as amateurs.

      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 also watched all 3 hours and i enjoyed them. it said indiana has had the most powerball winners and they also showed the numbers that are drawn most often in lotteries. the largest unclaimed jackpot was $51 million dollars so the show had a lot of information for anyone who likes the lottery. tennessee showed that lottery commercial with the balls bouncing on the piano during the shows so they still show that misleading advertisement here.

          Yeah- they didn't say for any specific lottery, but here's the numbers that hit most often:

          50   54   31   8   25   44

          and the least often:  33

          Wonder how many people that watched will be playing them! 

          Also, they said the first U.S. lotto (after lotteries hadn't been allowed for years) was New Hampshire in 1964 and the jackpot was $100,000.

          (I thought it was later than 1964).

            These shows are the 'good' winner stories.  Not the ones about how the lottery ruined their lives.

            I read awhile back that although the lotteries don't sponsor such shows, they don't hinder them.  So, they tend to be a bit propaganda.

            Nonetheless, they're fun to watch.  Gives you an idea of how people handle winning.  For me, I enjoy that part more than seeing what they buy, etc.

            My question for those who appear on these shows would be 'do you get more requests for donations, etc, after the show airs'?

              The two that aired in my time ( I had football to endure on Sunday)...so I did see the young buck who won and decided to keep working! Then he decided the Air force might be his forte in life. He is a thrill seeker so maybe he'll get to experience life on the govt terms. Thats a thrilling thought! (not really).

              Then there was the couple that were down on their luck, won a good chunk and bought a slew of cars! My oh my how tickled they were to delight in that ! Then the husband went on to be manager of a car lot!

              What I liked most is the fact that they DID decide to keep working! They decided to do it on their own terms though which is probably the factor most folks would agree with. I just liked the fact that they were average folks and didnt let the money make them arrogant. Far too many folks get interviewed and have moved up the ladder yet didnt take their humility with them.

                Guess you missed the postal workers. One guy said the other one "Gave them his notice at the press conference, and he really meant it. After that he went home and "called in rich".

                  Thanks for sharing that tidbit of info. Some folks do quit and follow their life passion. Which is my point exactly! They work on their own terms or not. Its a choice not a chore.

                        Wow.  There numbers for Powerball last night matched five of those numbers:

                        25-27-31-44-54 and PB 08

                        The $10,000 prize was hit hard.

                          I guess people were playing. I need to get in on some of these mass numbers.
