    It didn't change them, it changed the people they know....into a pack of wolves...and of course once the word got out to the piggery the piggery probably started harassing them too.

    What is this piggery you keep talking about?

        Just kidding!

        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.

          LOL HoLeeKau..I was going to ask him the same thing...If there was a "piggery" going on, I certainly wasn't part of it.

            Like DCBF said, yes....I'd definitley CONGRATULATE them!!

            I have some friends (not close anymore but were close at the time) who won 19 million in a lottery many years ago...I think around '97 or '98...It was a big thing that happened to them during that time and billboards were up all around town congratulating them, but the money changed them....I think to the state of paranoia.....the wife as become distant and secluded...I think winning THAT kind of money can change people in some ways....Even though I'd love to win a nice amount of money, I don't want it to be so much that I change who I am...

            They probably went into seclusion because everyone was asking for money. I've read some stories here and at other websites about people who win the lottery and even though they don't change, other people around them do and they end up having to cut loose some "friends" because they want more money. Some have had to move because of people in their community constantly asking for money.

            If I did win a big jackpot, I'd keep a low profile for all  the reasons already mentioned. Sometimes it's best just to keep things to yourself.

              Nothing.

               

              The only winners I'd recognize are those on the LCML show and I'm sure they get enough attention as it is. I would likely just give them the 'I know who you are' nod.

                That's what I do when my wife's talking to me while I'm trying to watch tv.

                    If I met a big winner in a store I would first ask if they have heard of Lottery Post.  If they had, then I would ask if they frequent the forums.  If they did then I would ask if they thought B2B was a big horses ass.

                     

                    If they said yes, then I would agree with them.

                     

                    If they said no, I would say "read some more of his posts",

                    then I would ask if they had any dogs that needed walking.

                        Did you know that many lottery winners continue to play believing that they will hit a big windfall again? So maybe if you have a really good system they may be interested in buying it from you. I mean they do have money now to buy it from you. Or Maybe they wont want anything to do with your system at all because they believe they have the winning system?

                        They might be interested in knowledge that might help them win again just like you are. It's not as if they have some how now turned into an alian from outerspace because they have won and now have no goal to create even more wealth or no goals to create some better idea for the planet. 

                        In otherwords if you have a way to make them more wealthier they might be interested in what you have to say. They are very busy people. In other words hit the road jack if you are of no creative inspiring benefit to them!

                        Many wealthy people are interested in. Idea's & investing in ideas.

                        Although some are very cool people in deed. And are very thrifty also. And very very creative. So maybe ask them if they have any advice on how you might become more creative also. And then listen to what they have to say.

                          When I went into the store with my 5of6 Classic Lotto winner last Tuesday, the only person I wanted to talk to was the one that filled out the claim form and verified my ticket for me to pick up my money at the bank.  Had I matched 6of6 they wouldn't have ever seen me in that store as I would have called a regional office and made an appointment to verify my ticket and pick up the money directly from the state.

                          Congrats rjoh. I hit 5 of 6 then 4 of 6 in 2012 on my state classic lotto. Do you still play those winning numbers?
