When I win a lottery jackpot I expect a full blown parade and a statue in my image as well as a weekly "worship" session in the topic where I show off a scanned copy of the winning ticket.Stooges

You can't predict random.

    What Qualities are considered when Inducting someone into the Hall of Fame, and does EZMoney have any of those Qualities?

      You should be given a status of Six Figure winner but Hall of Fame is something earned for

      doing something consistently over a period of time, and that is not the case.  It was a quick

      pick, that was a blessing.  Congratulations

        Well if old EZ wants "in the hall" that bad, I say do it like baseball- not even eligible until five years after retirement - and then that's only elgibility, not a guarantee of getting in.

        From this thread I'm taking it that EZ won a Pick 5 - I remember St. Germain hitting the Little Lotto twice.

        That's the game I play the most, but in the grand scheme of things, on a board where people are stirving to hit a 5 + 1 game that pays at least 12 or 15 million for starters, a pick 5 payout is relatively chump change.

        EZ, you should read, re-read, and re-read the post about the guy in Ohio getting killed after he won the 5 + 0 MM prize ($250,000).

        I don't think sounding your own trumpet on the internet about a win is the smartest thing you can do - and don't be so sure there's no one here at LP that hasn't won a  larger jackpot.

        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.

              The fact is Im this sites biggest proven winner.  Thats my claim to fame.  Dont hate because of that.

              You think you should get into a hall of fame because of a random statistical anomaly? There are literally thousands of times as many people who have won 100 grand of more than there are people that have been hit by meteorites. Maybe you can ask again when you have a real claim to fame.

                  How about putting me in the hall of fame.  I have been playing in three different decades and my biggest prize to date is $500 woo hoo!

                    i think people that win big should have something on their avatar stating that they won also like a hall of fame symbol...What i don't like is the tone of easy money..Look what he writes...
                    "Since Ez money is a legend here"

                    Now what kind of writing is that? sorry to say it but is clearly bragging and there is nothing wrong with bragging but is more like arrogance..Other people have won here at LP and none of them has mentioned that they are "a legend" in LP...I believe ez money owes everybody an apology...

                    a better writing would have been: "since ez money won a jackpot" don't you think he deserves a hall of fame in his avatar...That will have been a better statemen...Ez money may think i am writing to harm him but i am writing to point out how others may view his post...

                    Anyways like someone said previously, such big wins is supposes to inspire us...

                    I also think Geo5666 should get one hall of fame since he clearly has predicted several jackpots despite that he has not bought the tickets...

                    look i am just trying to help...

                      Also is good that you won but what's the point that you won if you don't have a system to show the rest of us so that we can win it too and inspire us...

                      And i just don't mean a system to teach/inspire the rest of LotteryPost members here but to teach the entire population of the U.S.A...I call it been patriotic..

                        Thanks Coin Toss for chiming in on behalf of St.germain

                        Coin Toss said: I remember St. Germain hitting the Little Lotto twice.

                        Yes and he did it with his own numbers using a wheel. There were smaller prizes paid out as well since 3 or more numbers fell on different lines.

                          Well then we really are talking relative chump change.

                          (I don't know what amount St. Germain won, and it's none of our business anyway, but the game he hit went from a 5/30 with a fixed jackpot to a 5/39 with a progressive jackpot, which at times has been over $1,000,000.)

                          Asking to be put in the "hall of fame" for that is about equivalent of asking to be put in the real life baseeball Hall of Fame because they were on the team roster and got on base on a walk the same day another player hit four homerrs in a game.

                            ROFL  Thats why I can see a banner (avatar) stating he is a Six Figure winner but hardly Hall of

                            Fame.  He just doesnt know how deep LP is nowadays.  This did happen back when it was just

                            a little over 500 members
