big fan of Lynn samuels on sirius 146, the other day a guy called in about a topic, and in passing he mentioned he won the lottery for fifty million.

listening to the tone of his voice, he was a really happy man.  "who wouldn't be after winning that amount?"

one of the things i'll take from his phone call was,   once he had the money every day he just kept making more.

since there are so many winners floating around, they have to be just like you and me, right?   

could this caller be telling the truth about winning the big money?

    Possibly, but you will probably never know for sure. 

    I once read about an English woman who won the lottery for at least a million pounds, she called into a radio station and they verified her identity off the air, but it was her.  She told them that not even her husband knew she won the jackpot and that if her husband knew then the money would be gone.

      Yep he could be. There have been many lottery winners who've gone on tv and done interviews. We see them all the time on those TLC shows about lottery winners.

        Driving in Missouri one day I was listening to a financial program on the radio.The host was talking about investments and taxes and tax shelters.

        A guy called up and said he had got lucky and won $2,000,000 in the Missouri lottery.

        The host said, "Then you should have your own program and I should be calling you!"

        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 did win a jackpot, they last thing I would do is call a radio station. I would not care if they believed me or not, why run the risk of someone recognizing your voice?

          We all get a lot out of lotteries!
