    Discovering that the whole danged thing will go to that ex whom you despise for back alimony.  And it also located you so she could put a garnish on your wages to take more every single month of your miserable life.

      Taking one step back (technically not winning, but)... playing the same numbers for years, and the one time you didn't buy it for one reason or another your numbers come up.

          Yep, this is my biggest fear. In 20 years of playing the same 2 sets of numbers, i only missed playing them 4 times and I crapped myself everytime. I refuse to check those 4 times because if I check and they did win....even if it was 4 or 5 I would be pissed. I checked a website and plugged in my numbers to see if they ever hit anywhere and they never did, or maybe I plugged them in wrong.

            The one time I actually hit the big one, I don't buy the ticket in Maryland or Delaware like usual.

              You are on your way to collect the big payout, get into an accident, transported to the hospital unconscious and after awakening, find out that your car was burned to a crisp with the winning ticket inside. Crying

                You know this question makes me think of that show they had on about some gas station workers winning the lottery. I think two of them were so hard up for cash they robbed the gas station and almost ended up killing the manager. So I think that would be the very worst case scenario...needing money so bad you commit a crime then win the jackpot the next day, and the cops are looking for you

                      I can't help but think of that Alanis Morisette song "iRONIC"..I'm beyoynd certain something fatal or tragic would happen to me without a doubt

                      "No matter how bad things may get, I'd like to thank my middle finger

                      for always sticking up for me.."

                        The worst case scenario would be something like this:

                        Having the government confiscate almost half of your winnings to pay a few minutes worth of the interest piling up on the 17 trillion dollars of debt they've run up.

                        Oh wait, they already do that...

                        OK, losing your ticket then.

                            l think there is a line in there where someone said " who wants to be stuck in a dream for 10 years- and the dude who concocts those serums says " depends on the dream!".. or something to that effect.

                              This fits here:

                              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.
