Why don't lottery winners who go broke just win again?

I've always wondered how some lottery winners manage to go broke when they still can play.  Let's say you're a former Mega Millions winner from 8 years ago who goes broke.  All you have to do is just win again, duh!  If they won once, then winning again should be a piece of cake right?

    Not all lottery winners go broke, the difference being, some people make bad choices and can't handle money, people who make good financial choices usually already have money and winning the lottery is just a little icing on the cake.

                  News of the Weird, in its weekly column, has a category called Not Quite Clear On the Concept.

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                  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.

                    Yeah! I think the guy who won half of the $580million PB Jackpot won a 'small' amount of $350,000 then was on the last of it when he said Hey my money is about to run it's course let me just go do the same thing I did before.

                        I disagree. That's not how luck or providence works.

                        It's all good though brother/sister.

                          It's just as hard for a winner to win a second time as it's for a loser to win the first time.

                            Winning the lottery is not a choice- its chance. To say why don't they win again is like the old saying " l can't be out of money- l still have cheques left"..Hit With Stick

                              Maybe trying to win again is what drives them broke.  basically, what ever flaws you have before the win are  magnified 1 000 000 times,.and once you win no one will be splitting the check ever again.
