    Hell, yeah!

    I'll keep playing just so there's one less chance for tiggs to win.

          It all depends on what kind of deal the Lottery Fairy offers you. She lets some people win several times. she tells others no playing ever again after a jackpot. Some of these are people you've seen on The Curse of the Lottery on TLC.

          Scared

          Now you know.

          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 had always figured I'd keep playing and if I won something major again... well then some family/friends would be getting a pretty nice gift, as well as a chartity, or if it's a jackpot then my almamater would be getting a donation for poorer kids who need scholarships.

              Most of my gambling after a win would be done at casinos, though, and I wouldn't be playing for tons of money so that money won (if any) would be going back to myself.

                I would stop playing after winning 5 million dollars AFTER taxes.
