    Thanks for the heads up, markp1950

    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.

                Hopefully they found some people more interesting than the last bunch.

                "...a chance to push everything aside, the circumstances that've controlled our lives, and do it our way now. Good, bad or otherwise. You'll maybe get lost in it, tied up in it a little bit, but if you work your way through that the real you shows up, I think. Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace

                    A store clerk stole a million-dollar lottery ticket from a customer in Texas and fled to Nepal with the cash???

                    Yeah well, if it was me he stole from, I'd take my Colt 45 back to that store and aim for his gurlfren's dot!

                        Maybe I can get on for my "almosts". Eleven times I missed by one number. I thought that 12 would be the charm. I sure couldn't miss by 1 number 12 times. BUT last night, sure enough, Wis Badger 5 I had  10-11-16-28-31 the numbers for last night were  

                         

                         (4 out of 5) so now I have missed by 1, 12 times.  $50 instead of $23,000. On top of that I got 4 out of 6 on supercash. ($30). Sure better than $0. Oh well, Illinois Little Lotto is now $410,000 ( I believe $490,000) and I have whole $4 riding on it.  Maybe I can go down and put a couple more on it! Heck, I have  whole $80 to put down.... :-)

                          It was interesting. The group that won in Ohio was sued by some co-workers who claimed that they got shut out of playing for the drawing that was hit, but the people running the pool had every play documented for five years.

                          Good leeson about people though.

                          Another guy in Rhode Island who owned a body shop won. He had people who had work done years in the past ask him to pay them back for what he had charged them.

                          The pooor guy in Texas had a million dollar winner and asked the clerk if he had won anything. The clerk tole him $2, paid him, and took the ticket. The guy hadn't signed the ticket. Some of the money the clerk had put in U.s. banks has been recovered and paid to the first guy, but only $395,000. The Texas Lottery wouldn't pay him, although a lottery investigator had called him, told him there had ben some fraud, and reviewed all the tapes at the store.

                          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.

                            Alright, if you HAD to go on this show if you won the lottery, would you rather not win?

                              It could be a blessing if that keeps happening to you every time you play.
