Why do left haned Americans so rarely win jackpots?

Depending whose statistics you read, somewhere between 10 and 13% of the population is left-handed, so where's the jackpots?

And how come it's 10 to 13% of the population that's left-handed, not 50%, it just isn't fair!

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.

    I think the store clerks look to see which hand you use to fill out your lottery slips with and if you use your left hand, they notify lottery headquarters and inform them so they can  make sure the numbers chosen by the lefties aren't drawn.

      I am ambidextrous so they usually hide the lottery slips from me when they see me coming.

          Freak them out, put the bet slip between your toes and foot it over.

                    I read where three of last four Presidents were left-handed, but when I tried to check the overall percentage, it was unknown because before the 20th century, teachers taught the lefty's to use their right hand.

                    I thought about asking why skinny people rarely win jackpots, but then I couldn't remember the last time a saw a skinny person.
