    When I was 18, I was chasing women and partying. The lottery was about 17 tiers low on the priority list.....lol

      Not even close.

      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.

        I wouldn't really say people that do well financially win more often. Usually it's middle or lower class people winning with the occasional upper class person winning. The thing I noticed with most of the well off people who won, they didn't play as often or as much as the people who weren't doing as well financially. For a good look at how many lower/middle class people win compared to upper just look through some of the stories on here. Thinking back about the ones I read there was probably six lower class winners for every upper class winner, which I would call more middle-upper. The only real RICH person I could think of is Jack Whittaker who already had a net worth of about $20 million.

         

        As for winners being from "richer towns", I know they usually come from bigger towns, which is expected because of how many more people play in them.

         

        And the older people winning... yea it's just that they have better stuff to do and would also like to spend that extra money on other things.

          Whoever is playing is who's winning. When I used to sell lottery tickets, yeah, there were a lot more senior folk playing. Also take a look around at casinos, you will see more people with snow on the roof but, hey, who cares? I wish them all well. After a lifetime of living and paying dues our elders deserve a big prize. A young person has the rest of their life (God willing) to accomplish the same.

            Don't begrudge old people like tiggs winning the lottery.

            Just think, if tiggs won he might buy new clothes and not smell like moth balls all the time.

              Basil, it's probably because old folks have some disposable income to 'invest' in such activities. You should see the old people at our local Casino. They're pullin' them handles, rollin' them bones, and they're double-downing at them Blackjack tables!

                    I have this idea that they pick those towns for some reason.

                      It all started back in the ‘70’s with the white belt and shoes conspiracy that came from New Jersey.

                      Old men wearing white belts and shoes and polyester pants and shirts held a convention and swore they would take over the lotteries after voting them in.
