Wow, i thought people would have been nicer than this. If i hit for 500 to 1000 i would definately send a small sum to whoever put those numbers in my head.

    I know I sure do. Because I see it as a blessing and since they helped bless me with the winning number I feel obligated to bless them.

    Yes.

    love to nibble those micey feet.

      I wouldn't expect anything back if I gave someone numbers for any lottery and they hit.  If I felt that good about the numbers, I would play them myself as well.  If someone gives you numbers and they are just too lazy to get down to the store to play the numbers themselves, I would not think they are owed anything at all.

        People here are plenty nice, but you just can't go giving money out to everyone or you would have none left!

        It does depend on amount though.  If someone from a non-PB state were to give me numbers for the PB here that they felt really good about, and then I played and the numbers won, the jackpot would be plenty big to throw some their way. I would consider a 'consulting bonus' in that situation. :)

            Your had work means nothing to you ? Do you work for free ? Picking numbers for others is time consuming there for a little gratitude indeed shows your appreciation don't you think ?

              500 to 1,000 dollars where are you from no offense...

              If you win and someone helped you, you are obligated to give them half even if the person did not know you won...There should be a law for this...I say this because people forget that it takes 30 to 40 years of hard work for someone to accumulate let's say 500,000 or 1,000,000 dollars and after they accumulate this they'll be 65 years old and have very few years on their side...LIke life isn't cruel...And there is no life in the universe, once you gone you are gone...

              And i don't think if someone helped you you go and spent it with your beers and crazy ideas...

              but what i don't agree is for 2 people to get married and the wife just babysitt the kids and after the male dies she gets half of the fortune...I believe she should get something to make her live comfortably but she should not get half specially if she didn't work...

              You know how i hate for one person to be a billionaires (like we actually had a lot of them) and give half of his fortune to a women just because she gave him a son, unless she didn't raise him she should not get more than 100 million....And don't think that 6 years is raising a kid because that's not time enough, raising a kid takes 18 years...

              I think for 1 billionaire after he separates with his wife for whatever reason she should get 100 million dollars, not more than that....But there are cases where a person accumulates 600 million or more and the wife gets half of the money when she did not work, just because they were married, knowing that she should get 100 million but because she is married she is entitled to half...I don't like that system...I think in this cases they should look at how long have the couples been married together...I am the kind of person that believes that if it was for me, i'll make women millionaires and not men, but there are things that don't seem right and this is one of them...

              anyways, going back to the lottery and if someone helped you...I think it should go like this...If you have ton of money then you can be stingy on how much you give the person that helped you provided you gave them a very good deal....But when you are poor you are entitled to give the person half if that person helped you because it will take several decades to accumulate 500K to 1 million....People forget that once you are rich is easier to make money but once you are poor is extremely hard...

              The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨

                Just say that RJOH give you a prediction for illinois today 748 and you hit it straight for a thousand . Do you give RJOH hundred dollars and say thank you for looking Out ? Or you don't feel that you owe him anything .

                I post on the prediction board all the time.  If someone plays my predictions and lose all their money, I don't want them dumping on me trying to make me feel bad and if they win, nothing is expect but a "that a boy" will do fine.

                  RJ makes a good point.  If you give someone *losing*predictions, do you think you should give them $.50 for half of the losing ticket?  If not, what would make you entitled to only partake in winners and not be responsible for the losers?

                    Same thing, what is stopping anyone from playing the number for themself?

                    PS

                    Donald Trump would go broke trying to play all the predictions people give.

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

                      LOok i may be dislike for this, i don't mean to offend anyone...

                      suppose the jackpot is 100 million dollars "Quoting" "the jackpot would be plenty big to throw some their way"

                      But reading this comment how do you call yourself American, where is your sense of fellowship for your fellow American, after all he gave you the numbers...

                      you disgust me...i don't want you to take it seriously anyways because is just a forum and i don't know you...but still i can't believe someone said that here in this forum...Didn't they teach you better at home...

                      you are suppose to give the person half i don't care if you paid 10 bucks for it...

                      ...If you paid for the PB numbers (some kind of prediction website) you are still suppose to give the person something maybe a bonus as a sign of gratitude...And not only that but be friends with that person because if it wasn't for that person you wouldn't be where you are today...

                      suppose a woman gave you the numbers and you won 100 million, you are also going to give her a consulting bonus...

                        I am plenty generous, but hey, it all depends on the circumstance.

                          PUMPI, are you really saying that you should only share your winnings and not the losses you suffer by using the numbers suggested by others?  If that is really your position, I think youd tell us why you feel that way.  If I misread your post, please explain it better.

                            Your had work means nothing to you ? Do you work for free ? Picking numbers for others is time consuming there for a little gratitude indeed shows your appreciation don't you think ?

                            Did you read and understand what he said? If I tell you I think a number is <insert your choice of adjective here> and you win by playing it there are two possibilities. One possibility is that I also played it and therefore also won. The other is that I didn't play it and therefore didn't win. If I won, why should you reward me on top of that? If I didn't play numbers I said you should play, why would you reward me?

                            I don't know about you, but I'm guessing that most people who put hard work into picking numbers are doing it for themselves, rather than  for others. Once the work is done it costs nothing to share that information. Of course if you want to know what that "hard work" is worth, just have a look at the average  profits in the predictions.

                              I still want to know why none of these people "helping people" win the lotery aren't playing the numbers for themself.

                              And, if they are, and you were to give them a cut of your winnings, they'd think you're a real schmuck.

                              Pumpi, if they are in business selling lottery information or picks, they are selling hundreds or thousands of combinations to as many people as they can get to pay for them.

                              Same thing, if they are that confident in theor own picks, they should play them, if they're selling so many they'd go broke playing their own picks, should somebody win with their numbers they are not obligated to give them anything.

                              Let's say you sent off for a bodybuilding course, started lifting weights, and won a Mr. Universe contest. Would you owe the people who sent you the course any of the prize money?  No, not at all.

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