      Alex,

      Statistically most Americans are in jobs they don't like. It's said that the most common time for heart attacks is on monday mornings- people detest the thought opf going back to a job they can't stand so much that their bodies say "OK" and shuts down.

      Most forms of gambling are an attempt to bring in a little extra money.

      Lottery jackpot games offer a way yo get out of "the trap" for good.

      For most working slobs, it's the only way to make a major score.

      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.

          technically i could be considered a journalist as well as i did write for the paper once upon a time...i even had my picture in the paper...but i digress...

          somebody here said the lottery is the mafia...

          i would say its more like a democratic movement...

            I sat in one class of statistics, master degree sociology with a friend for half a morning. Surveys meet statistics.

            You still didn't learn when to use uppercase.

            Historically speaking it might be considered worse than a mafia, as they used it to gather money for buying cannons. Not a very noble cause. A few hundred years ago organizing a lottery was a way to earn money quick. Noble people liked to gamble, and to win. Read a few old French books about it!

              You dont need uppercase if its all one sentence...

              its all one thought...

              You only use a capital at the beginning of a sentence...dont lecture me on the use of the english language...

                    LottoBoner,

                    The Zeta Reticuli Star System is where a lot of UFOs come from, or so the story goes. 

                    It's also the home of the planet Tralfamadore, where Billy Pilgrim and his dog went to stay with the dancer, Montana Wildhack, in the book Slaughterhouse 5 by Kurt Vonnegut, later made into a movie.

                    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.

                      Hi

                      I'm a journalist working on a piece about the lottery. I'm interested in interviewing some players and getting your perspective on the lotto. Feel free to inbox me or just respond in the thread. 

                      How long have you been playing the lotto?

                      Have you ever won?

                      Do you play the same numbers?

                      What is the lotto dream? What does that mean to you?

                      What would you do if you win?

                      How do you feel about your long odds of actually winning?

                      Will you ever stop playing the lotto?

                      If you feel comfortable, could you tell me your name (even just a first name),age and a little bit about yourself.

                      Thanks
