Why is it that no one has ever won a dozen or more MUSL jackpots?

Anyone have any insight here?  Do jackpot winners simply quit playing?

They shouldn't!  They won in the first place because it was way too easy for them and if it's way too easy once you'd think it would be that way for every single drawing.   

If I was one of these winners, I'd win the next five $300 million plus drawings then retire.

    How do you figure it was too easy for them to win once? You obviously don't realize the immense odds against a person winning once, much less twice, three, or four times in a lifetime.

    The person who won was simply lucky enough to beat the astronomical odds. There were hundreds of millions of losing tickets in order for that one or two people to win.

      Yes, if I won a jackpot, I would still play the lottery.  Some people are lucky to win a lottery jackpot.

        Over 91 million tickets were purchased trying to win the $400 million PB jackpot last week and only ONE winning ticket. Why do expect that one jackpot winner should win the jackpot again?

        "If I was one of these winners, I'd win the next five $300 million plus drawings then retire."

        If you think it's that easy to win twice, ever wonder why you never won it once?

          I've never won it once because I can't, it's impossible for me.  Best I can hope for is 5 + 0.

          I guarantee you that any winner could win the jackpot multiple times with the greatest of ease.

            Multiple jackpots no...but if you did win a jackpot one good time you could have better luck buying and winning on scratch-offs I would think...that's what I'd be playing mostly if i won a big jackpot....it'd be nice to go in and buy those $20 scratch-offs at like $500 each time

              Yeah, just like that Joan Ginther who won like $5.4 million on state lotto then went on to win 3 more jackpots on scratch-offs. She has more money to drop than the average joe so she has won more jackpots.

              If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
              If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

                If you have that mindset of it being impossible or you can't, then you're never going to win. Never give up and have the beleif that you will win one day. All it takes is a littl bit of luck and beleif.

                  Just a guess, but I'm betting they're using reverse physiology.

                    Winning the lottery is not like winning with horses- obviously there are those extremely fortunate folk who can pick winners- not so with the lottery.

                    Notice the difference?

                        For the simple fact that the odds are freaking astronomical, but you already know that. Good luck if you can it once in your lifetime.

                          People have won the lotteries more than once, there are many stories. Go online and search it. One woman I believe from Jersey won the lottory twice and today she is broke living in a trailer. Her reason for being broke as she claims, is she could never say NO to people borrowing, plus I guess she gambled a lot.Bash

                            Many stories? The word "many" is relative.

                            There may be a dozen or more who've won in the past ten years more than once, and any more than a dozen were people who won at scratchers because they had the money to dump on large amounts of scratchers, but they didn't win another JP.

                             

                             

                            Lots of people on the net use the word JP too casually. I've heard the word JP used for a 200,000 scratch-off win, or even a million dollar scratch, but that is not the same as a multi-million dollar JP. Those lesser scratch-off winners get lumped into the same category as big JP winners and people get confused. It skews the numbers and makes the tally an erroneous one.

                             

                            If you actually tally the people who win the JP games that have an estimate of 3 to 10 million, the numbers are high, considering a lot of states have a lotto draw twice a week. And since there's a winner just about every week, those winners add up quickly when you consider the 37 states that have lotteries.  So you basically have thousands of lottery winners in that ten year period, and a dozen or so who won twice. I wouldn't call that many.
