No one who has publicly posted "this jackpot is mine", "I have tonight's winning ticket" - which happens often when a jackpot is pumped up, has ever won a jackpot. Doing so is a guaranteed jinx.

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.

    Anyone who has been with this site for any length of time, has heard of every possible reason why the lotteries are rigged.   Hiding Behind Computer

     

    Here are some popular ones, feel free to add/delete to this list as you believe.   Idea

     

    A. Only certain geographic areas of the country are always winning the big games. (ex. New York, California, certain mid-west towns).  Dupe Alert

    B. Only certain demographics of people are always winning the big jackpots. (ex. White, professional, rich, intelligent people).  Hat

    C. The lottery balls are rigged/programmed to come out a certain way favoring the lottery.   Coffee

    D. The people that are winning these jackpots, are fictitious or made up by the evil lottery executives.   BS

    E. Certain races of people are on the "racist list" of the lotteries, and therefore will never win.  Hippy

    F. The lottery waits until the very last minute, until most numbers are played, and then purposely chooses other numbers that will generate

          the least amount of winnings for all players.

    G. The lotteries send out covert agents into the private sector to spy for them.  Leaving

    H. The lotteries hate all the players, and plot ways to kill them off, in the slowest and most painful death they can devise.  Dead

           (I just made that one up, although it's probably a theory that many adhere to?).    LOL

    F. The lottery waits until the very last minute, until most numbers are played, and then purposely chooses other numbers that will generate the least amount of winnings for all players.

       They call it pre draws. But I don't want to get everyone started on that...Wink

     How about when too many people play the same number, and the lottery stops selling that number. They say it's going to

     break the bank, but they just don't want too many people to win. This proves they know how many people bought a   

     particular number before the drawing takes place and if that number comes up, "Oh, that was the pre draw". Thumbs Up

     So  F. is not a conspiracy, it's the truth.

    The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.

    Don't just think outside the box, crush it.

      Another conspiracy theory: the lottery generates quick pick numbers in a central computer that controls what numbers are handed out, and where.

                            They put mister invisible in charge of manipulating the drawing in such way that the winning lotteryticket goes to the lottery itself. The US Flag way to do business with players.

                              good point!!!!  i could walk into a store and buy let's say 1111 or 5555 and those numbers would be sold out at 3 pm for an evening draw.  proof positive they know ahead of time which numbers have been bought!!!
