    This is news to me.

    I think there are probably laws against private individuals starting a lottery...even if that individual is Bill Gates.It just goes to show that no matter how rich you might be,you can't do everything you might want to do.Money can't buy everything.

            I agree. It sounds like something someone made up.

              Yeah, I remember it, it was an obvious scam or lie in a chain e-mail.

              You can't predict random.

                it was a rummor...I remember the story read that Bill Gates was hinting at starting A gigantic lottery, i don't remember if this lotto involved countries playing each but i did read it...

                And will like to make one correction....The spokeperson wasn't the spokeperson now that i remember it was an expert in lottery sitting infront of a pannel...It happened long ago that i don't remember everything how it went....

                I read it on an electronic newspaper i think or i think it was cnet....

                it was after that incident that people started hearing about the Bill Gates Lottery Scam...It was after that news that i began getting the Bill Gates LOttery chain email scam...

                  he is a person that could start a billion dollar lottery if you think about it...He has the money to support it...What i am saying is he has the money to support it if in case it goes broke...

                  by the way Bill Gates i think he wasn't going to start it he was going to oversee it...

                    I watched a documentary on Bill Gates recently, "Bill Gates: How A Geek Changed The World", on SBS television here in Australia, on how he plans to spend $25 Billion on addressing poverty and disease. I was interesting, one of the people interviewed said, "Bill Gates' goal is to win a Nobel Peace Prize, and he will spend whatever it takes to win it" .

                      It's doubtful he is going to start a lottery. Your dreams aren't his. Besides, if he was going to start one, there would have been news reports about this.
