Oooops!

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.

    I dread being the first billion dollar lottery winner. No rest from "family and friends" or the media.

    I will quit playing the lottery, as soon as I break even.

      If you were fortunate enough to win that size jackpot, I seriously doubt you would have any problems keeping family, friends or the media at bay.

        That would not be an issue for me. I dont let people worry me, ESPECIALLY  if I had enough money to make them invisible

          Dread is not a word I would associate with winning a billion dollars..

            Winning for worst case might depend on the dollar amount. Something under 15 million should be pretty easy with guidance from a solid financial adviser & atty and keeping to yourself.
            Winning 20 - hundreds of millions ??? Now you may have a bit of challenge. Make sure you had the absolute best legal attorneys and tax/investment team.
              A Billion ?? wellllllll......I may have to hire a swat team before/after collecting Naughty

              Having to give up half your winnings in taxes when they give you your check and then having to give even more to your own state and local taxes! LOL
