Patel!

Ut oh. A very popular restaurant in our town with an adjoining liquor store that sells lottery tickets was just sold to someone with the last name of Patel!

Scared

I don't think I'll be buying tickets there!

PS,

Maybe this is a different kind of Patel though. He bought a liquor store across town that had lotto and he discontinued lotto in that store.

Tabloid headline:

Patel buys liquor store, drops lotto!

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.

    What does a person's last name have anything to do with business of buying anything? What do you have against Patels?

      Do a search in these foprums for stories about players being scammed by clerks and see how often the clerk had the name Patel.

        So what's that got to do with you if you don't know a winning ticket from a losing one give up.

        Crooks are everywhere not just immigrant lottery sellers.

        This store owner might be a hindu priest or cleric for all you know.

          Calm down guys, I don't think he was being completely serious.

           

          Besides, there have been a number of Patel clerks who sold a winning ticket where the winner wasn't scammed.

          If anything it sounds like it'd be good luck to those who believe in that. Just be extra careful with your ticket!

            Lol there has been a bunch of people scammed by Patels in many lottery articles posted here at LP but I don't necessarily believe all Patels are dishonest. The ultimate responsibility rests with the player. Check your own tickets or hand them over when they are all signed at the back.

                  I just heard a funny story about a store owner who got hooked with the expensive $10 scratch offs. Perhaps someone told him that it was his destiny to win the million $ ticket, so he kept scratching those expensive tickets. His M O though, was he won't activate any losing batch and kept re-ordering. The state was just happy to oblige and kept sending them until the set expired. After which, they went to investigate and found Industrial strength bags filled with the losing tickets. No he didn't win the million $ and had to pay the state back. 

                  It just goes to show how universal greed is.

                      Its' my understanding that In india, this name is as common as smith, no disrespect ment to anyone named Smith.

                      I work in a big hotel and almost half the ppl. in the housekeeping dept. have this surname.

                       

                      Cointoss, on a lighter note, imagine a gun called a patel & wesson, LOL

                      armed robber:  whos' we succa ?  (had to edit the original word I chose w/armed robber)

                      Dirty Harry: patel, wesson & me. LMAO.

                          Indians can become rough and aggressive. Patel is a frequent name.
