"FOR every black winner i could find 3 non black  winners, look at the show how the lottery changed my life."

According to the 2010 census, Black Americans are 12.6% of the U.S. population. If your statistics, one out of every four jackpot winners is Black is correct, 25% of the jackpot winners are Black. That means twice as many Black Americans are winning jackpots based on their population percentage. If your statistics are correct, Black Americans are purchasing on average twice as many jackpot game tickets and are averaging about the same number of jackpot wins as they should statistically.

There are seven states/jurisdictions including California and Texas that never won a PB jackpot and 29 that haven't won a MM jackpot. Vermont has no second prize winners in PB and only two in MM. We can find the percentage of total ticket sales by Vermont PB and MM players, but I doubt you'll find an actual statistics showing the percentage of ticket purchases made by Black Americans.

For those suggesting the games are rigged preventing any ethnic group from winning the jackpot should at least show an example of how it could be logistically done. Because without it, they have nothing but an extremely biased opinion supported by zero evidence.

    I Agree! Nice work Stack. People who feel sorry for themselves like to cry tears of sadness on LP.

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

            Even though 99.7% of all purchased PB tickets will not win over $100 ($150 in MM), I believe they still feel cheated because they never won the jackpot. It just can't be because the statistics prove only a tiny percentage of players will win a jackpot, they have to make illogical conclusions why they haven't won.

            Saying Mindy gave up her chance of winning the PB jackpot to Gloria makes more sense.

              My question would be "why haven't we seen any lottery winners wearing a LP cap or shirt?".  Don't LP members play or don't they know how to win?

                Why don't you start searching for all the winners and see what you end up with, you might be surprised.  I would do it myself if I had the time or energy.

                  My point was according to your statistics, Black Americans are proportionally winning more jackpots than the overall population. That could be explained by purchasing a higher percentage of jackpot game tickets. The question here is based on the opinion, proportionally Black Americans win less jackpots without any statistics to back up their claim.

                  "its no point some people will even defend the reasons for slavery existing but thats here nor there"

                  The OP is suggesting not only do they rig the drawings, they select lottery agents in areas with a zero Black American population to sell the winning tickets. And all that is hidden from a Black American President who ordered the NSA to track billions of phone calls. 

                  It's true some people can logically defend the reason for slavery, but so far nobody has logically supported the opinion proportionally Black Americans win less jackpots.

                      When I was growing up I was always told that, the lottery is just a waste of money.

                      Me and my friends did not play the lottery until the pot was REALLY high...

                      So this maybe the simple reason why you do not see a great number of black lottery players...

                      Its not that we dont play, we just dont play that much. But I could be wrong...Cheers

                      You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting. In what world could you possibly beat me?Patriot

                        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.

                            Obviously Stack did an outstanding job pointing out the differences in population among blacks and whites. I had a similar debate with a guy years ago who claimed that whites cause more crime, yet when I pointed out that the higher ratio of crime was being commited with blacks because of the smaller population of blacks, he couldn't grasp it. You can't argue with ignorant people.

                            Another debate was with a friend of mine who was white and intelligent. He claimed that there were less fatalities flying than driving a car, but he didn't take in to account that there are many more cars driving at any given point during waking hours than planes flying in the air, so his stats were flawed. At any given time from morning till night, there are about 3,000 planes in the air, yet there are hundreds of millions of cars on the road during that same time period, so obviously you'll have higher fatality rates. And he too didn't want to admit he was wrong.

                            As far as the racism amongst the officials in the lottery office denying winning tickets to blacks, well, that's just absurd. Some here showed many blacks winning. If someone really believes there are hidden cameras watching people purchasing tickets with some computer program designed to cut back on blacks winning, needs to see a shrink. Even though I believe the Government is systematically encroaching onto our personal lives, especially in recent news, in no way would they spend that much money on logistics to ensure blacks won less than whites. Total paranoia there..lol

                            Lastly, there was slavery in just about every country throughout history. In fact, blacks had slaves before whites did. So please get your facts straight before you spew your nonsense. I'm not saying that racism is totally wiped out, but your assertions concerning the lottery and racism are rediculous.

                            BTW, neither black or white is considered a color. In fact, white is a mixture of the rainbow colors. That's why if you shine white light through a prism, you'll get a rainbow of colors. Again, get your facts straight.

                              Approximately 12% of the U.S. population is black (as Stack poointed out) yet 18% of federal employees are black.

                              Funny how people who start discussions such as this one never point out such things as disproportionate.

                              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.
