I think it is a good thing to, maybe because, That person that won a lot of money disappered, and they don't want it to happen again, If I won a lot of money I wouldn't want anyone to know I would want to keep it a secret.

Yeah, but like I said, that guy was in a dispute with a co-worker over the ticket. Suspect number one. Also, he's been missing since April and the family just reported recently.

I smell a rat.

      Huh?

      On the first page of thei thread markp1950 said

      Leave out the who and post the where.

      MarkP

      So I answered with Miami Miami Miami Miami, etc...since you started this thread and are in Florida.

      In Florida most winners are in Miami and in Illinois it's Chicago.

      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 don't give a hoot WHO won, I want to know that someone won, what they won and where they're from. How nice the state doesn't have

          to list winners/winnings anymore...what's a person to do? Take their word for it? Right.

          Someone said: I smell a rat...

          The family didn't report him missing for 7 months?

            Sticky wicket, joker.......

            If you call in sick because of this, you'll be thought to have won a jackpot.

            Then you'd be in the unique bind of not only not being anonymous but not being anonymous and not having won a jackpot!

                  My guess is it has to do with making public a winner's name. The thing is, whose to say a media outlet won't release it anyway?

                    This is just another bump in the road from the over paid, over-thinkers of the Florida lottery!

                    Why would they not want to make public, the amount of winners and selling outlets, on their web site? In these daily press releases, the person who won is not given, just where and how much.

                    This goes along with the lottery not showing live daily game drawings... I know...you can watch the "replay" on the web site. But who says that those replays are of the actual drawings and aren't controlled in some fashion?

                    Not to mention that they have increased the odds of the scratch off tickets to at least 1 in 10 and lowered the payouts structures on them at the same time.

                    All in all, the integrity of the Florida lottery has dropped to an all time low. The more information that they keep from their players, the less they will play.

                      I live in Jacksonville,FL and we don't have no where near as many jackot winners compared too Miami probably because I live in the Bible Belt so maybe the religious right is somehow causing this too happen unlike Miami which has a very large Santeria population along with Pagan Catholicism. I know that many Miamians pray too Saints for good fortune and a lot of them win that way while others consult Santeria preists and priesteses or do the practice themselves. Or the other most probable reason could be that the population in Miami is greater which results in more players and more winners compared too other cities in Florida.

                        Dear Mr. XXXXXX:

                        Thank you for your e-mail to the Florida Lottery requesting to be added
                        to our list of media members who receive daily draw results from the
                        Communications Office.  We have added you to our media list and you
                        should start receiving the press releases tomorrow morning.

                        We are changing the way we send out our press releases daily so that we
                        will only be sending out one press release for all the games that were
                        drawn from the night before.  We will however continue to post winner
                        releases as they come in and press releases regarding new game launches.

                        Thank you,

                        The Florida Lottery Communications Office

                          I really don't understand why it's so important to get the details of the results from each game anyway. We already know that qps tend to win more than personal selections, and that someone in Florida is going to win the games. If the need to know exact details is so you can be sure eveyrthing is fair and legitamate...well you couldn't really prove that before anyway. It was interesting to see that a lot of the winning tickets lately were not qps, but overall I don't see how the extra information really helps anyone. I would find it annoying to have the results emailed to me every single day though.
