      How many such cases do you have knowledge of?  And what were the odds of winning a jackpot in each type of game? 

      Winning a Pick5(5/39) jackpot three times is easier than winning a PB(5/59+1/39) jackpot once.  One is 1:575757 x 3 = 1:1727241 and the other is 1:195249054 x 1

      People spend different amounts trying to win a jackpot, the person that spends more usually win and lose more.  There are too many variables that stories about multiple winners don't cover.  If some one won the PB or MM jackpots several times that might baffle me but for other games I would have to know more about the games they won and the amount they spent because most such stories are written to get the general public excited about playing the lotteries.

        There's the fly in the ointment right there.

        People are OK about discussing the games they won.

        The amount they spent? That's another story.

                              I'm not really so sure that's true, THRUST. Various people have been said to say the harder the work the luckier they become but I thinking many things it is indeed just luck. No conscious effort, people just get lucky.

                              I think it was Reba McIntyre who sang the national anthem at a rodeo or minor legaue ball game and it just so happned that someone from the music industry was there that night and heard her.

                              There are many such stories.

                              For the question in the OP about people winning multiple jackpots, I know it happens once in a great while. I thini the lady from Texas was just "born under the right star", but if I find anything suspicious, it's not necessarily people winning more than once, but the number of "Wise Guys" that have won the Mass. Lottery.

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

                              Lep

                              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.
