            Anyone who would join LP and ask such a question on their first day here couldn't be serious.  No one with any sense would expect lottery winners to hang out at LP just to share their personal business with any stranger who wants to know. Jester Laugh

              Not true!  After consulting with financial professionals, I went out and bought 2-ply bathroom tissue.  No more of that John Wayne toilet paper for me!   Since then I've become much more popular..talk about neighbors & relatives bugging you all the time.  Everyone wants to come over to my house and squeeze my charmin.  Before I couldn't even get a good seat in a restaurant but, after winning the lottery, everyone wants to come over and use mine!

                  There's a member here by the name of EZMoney. He won $86M on Powerball. On one of his previous posts, he stated that if he ever won Powerball, he was going to give it all away. It wouldn't hurt to send him a PM. I'm sure he could spare you a portion of his winnings.Big Grin

                          Well no.  Back when Michigan had 6/40 Lotto I had a system that involved gap distribution and standard deviation.  I picked Ten sets of six numbers but I was really stupid.  Instead of spending 10 dollars, I picked only one set of numbers and only spent a buck.  One of the other nine sets hit for the jackpot and I will never forget that set - 7,14,17,25,27,33.

                          After kicking myself over and over and over again I kept tinkering with the system and I kept comming close every third draw (on average) through the entire run of the 6/40 and 6/44 games.

                          The system did not work so well on 6/47. 

                          I got lucky that one time but I did not have the numbers covered!Chair
