    Met a couple that won $20 million in Mega Millions in Illinois back in '04.  I had to ask them "Was it really easy to win?"   They said it was incredibly easy to win.  They said they were sure they could win again, but they don't play anymore.

    That's exactly how I would answer if someone asked me that stupid question.

    In fact I give a similar answer to people who ask if I ever win when I'm buying tickets.  I always answer "Sure all the time, you don't think I would be buying tickets if I didn't do you?".

      This had to be what happened.

      They met the Lottery Fairy, she arranged for them to win a jackpot with the condition they never play again or tell anyone exactly how they did it.

      Scared

      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 would have replied to your question " Was for me "

        2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

        keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

          How did oyu meet them? Did you catch them at a red light after noticing their "Ask me about my lottery jackpot" bumper sticker?

            A QP win means that they have good timing.....

            Just like in a casino some people always find the hot machine.

            So finding the right terminal may be easy for them.... 

            But to quit playing is just silly when you have that type of luck....Cheers

            You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting. In what world could you possibly beat me?Patriot

              Do all lottery jackpot winners get one of those bumper stickers?

                Yes. For a nominal fee of $75, which goes to further support our fine educational school systems.

                  I met them through a friend that knew them back before they won lottery.

                  I agree they should play again if they're that lucky, but they said it would be unfair to others who actually need the money.  They were pretty good, down to earth people.  I did ask for some tips on how to win & they asked me how long I have played.  I told them and they replied if you haven't won by now, you never will lol.

                      Wouldn't it make more sense for them to keep playing then and just give the winnings to the others who actually need the money?

                        Why would they want to ruin the joy of others winning a jackpot by winning it for them.

                            I think that was horrible for them to say! Haven't they heard the saying "if you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say it", the are not very nice people and they were just lucky!  When we win the "BIG" one, we will be blessed with the monies and able to bless others, even if those others are family members.  You will win, in scripture the book or Romans it speaks of the "tongue" it is powerful therefore speak your win and our win into existence.  You people are the reason that I look here everyday, not because I am sure that you have the "correct winning numbers" but because I see that you have taken the time to research and talk to one another that understands the lottery lingo and then you confer with on another on what you "think" the outcome will be, therefore you come into agreement and we try!  Once again, YOU {WE} WILL WIN!  PartyAnd then we will celebrate too!  Have an awesome day. and keep playing and telling funny stories. LOL
