Hi James. Fruitland Park? Wasn't John Marsh the guy (whos photo is on the Florida Lottery BDB winners site) you are talking about who won the $1M and $10M on BDB within a year from - Port Charlotte ? Supposedly bought from the same gas station. How about the other guy in the PanHandle in a very small town who won two huge similar amounts I think within a year.
The Florida Lottery site says there are over 13,000 retailers in the state. Figure the odds of the above happening with all the books sold and bought. The Florida Lottery site shows you how many top prizes are left on the scratch offs and I often wonder if they are all in circulation or even printed yet.
I know a few guys who buy books and books weekly/monthly for years and never won more than a $1,000 or maybe $5,000.
I find it hard to believe there is some magic formula involved finding winning top prize scratch offs. Marsh and the guy in the Panhandle are not math Phd's. It has to be luck.
What's your take ?
