it usually a colored guy and they win if fair or white skin is their partner or benefits. i want to see 2 black couples or an all colored group win

Some people I know say that more African Americans tend to play the lower pay out games such as pick3 or pick 4 and also purchase the lower cost scratch tickets . Very few participate in employee groups or employee pools as well. Lottery is a game of odds. If Caucasians purchase more $20 scratch tickets and play the higher pay out games what do you expect. I as well as my friends laugh about the fact that many of the large pay out scratch tickets are found in the predominantly white areas and small towns where few blacks live or play. It is however a mystery that I have found big pay out scratch tickets are also won by whites in stores which are frequented by mostly blacks. That happened just recently at a store I frequent. A white man won a million on a $20 scratch ticket. Bottom line, I would say go to different stores in different parts of town, play more big pay out games. And please stay positive.

      Based on what I've seen in the past, and still do, there tends to be more non-black lottery players. On any given day when standing in line at any convenience or large grocery store, other ethnicities reasonably out number blacks. Then, we have the age groups to factor in. Most younger people don't mess with the lottery no matter which ethnicity you look at. It's always the older and mature, even elderly crowd that's dropping coin for a chance to change their lives.

      On those huge by large record-type jackpots, I see more younger people taking a shot at it for whatever reason. Even then, only a handful were black.

       

      L.L.

      Small games, frequent wins, and regular payouts 'cause.....

      There are seven days in the week...'Someday' isn't one of them.

        That would be just about right if 3/4 of the people who play the lottery are "non black".

          This is very true and to the point. Blacks mostly stick to the lower cost games and tickets which is, coincidentally, where the lotteries' bread and butter really is. I do believe that demographics play a huge part in how the scratch tickets are distributed but, I could be wrong also. For this reason, when I want good scratch tickets, I go to the "high end" stores near the rich neighborhoods...and always manage to break even or end up at least $10 ahead in the end.

          As far as I'm concerned, it's well worth it to play at least the $10 scratchers...and the $20's are even better.

            LMAO - did you all stop to think that winning the Lottery is ALL luck and did you ever stop to think that maybe more white people play than black people do?

            This statement is way too funny......

              i came to this conclusion. the usa through false teachings have attached badness and negativity with a skin color or class of people. i remember in school they explain black is not a color in a rainbow, even the bible characterize dark or black as bad. this country was raised on they idea of taking blessings from african americans.

              so many of us dont bother too play because we know its rigged.they easy pick people by cameras.

              "so many of us dont bother too play"

              And there's your answer. 

              You can't win if you don't play.

              Give someone a fish and feed them for a day. Teach them to use the internet and they won't bother you for weeks.

                        White isn't in a rainbow either.
                        And the bible? Consider the region...dark skin? Most of the people must've been bad then.
                        Blessings don't discriminate unless you want them to or imagine they do. Maybe you need
                        to count other blessings.
                        I see all kinds of players and winners too. I never thought someone shouldn't win or WAS winning
                        because of the color of their skin.
                        If you are just speaking of yourself, please don't include the rest of the population who mainly don't
                        think past the thrill of seeing a new winner without a second thought given to skin color.

                              I really don't understand what you're trying to say here. Confused
