Hello...So i've been playing this lottery for many years off and on, until September/October of 2012 when I began playing it religiously...

In the past 7 years that I'd been playing, this particular lottery has averaged around 12 jackpot winners a year...Not alot, when you consider it is played 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year., but for some reason I've felt committed to sticking with this lottery, hoping one day, it will be my turn.

Okay, here's the strange turn of events...In the past, there might be one winner a month, sometimes a couple of months would go by without a single winner...Well, this month, February 2013, there's already been about 7 winners! I'm scratching my head here..I'm not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing...One lady that won has admitted to winning this same lottery 3 times in the past 7 years. They were quick picks. Oh, why can't it be meeeeeeeeeee????? Just ONCE, dangit! lol....anyway, I'd read where SC is getting ready to make some changes by using a private agency...I'm not up to par with what this would mean for lottery players...wondering if this means there might be more winners??? The news is very recent, so i'm sure nothing new has kicked in yet, but I'm just wondering what all these recent winners could be all about...I'm happy these people are winning, but will be happier when it (or if) it ever become MY turn! Thanks for reading my rant....

    I think it means a big win is coming, like a PB or MM or another NC win. The people are winning the top prize?  In the 10 weeks prior to that guy winning with a ticket from the Richmond VA airpot, Va had 9 2nd place winners right after another. I knew a big win was coming to VA.

      The big win in this particular lotto is the jackpot prize...The winners I mentioned have all won the jackpot prizes...

              yea if they  keep winning the top prize (and that # is highly unusual), I think something bigger is due. It was so obvious in VA with all the consecutive 2nd place PB winners  (You will normally see very few VA winners with 2nd place PB wins), that a PB JP winner was due/trying to hit. Hard to say which big lottery is due for a hit or your situation. I would get both a MM and PB ticket also until the trend is definitely over.

                            I couldn't agree more with that "positive approach". Have faith, believe and be positive. Your time will come!
