    Seriously, I'd like to know.  Winners are fleecing the lotteries left and right and making a mockery of the game.  it's time for a new lottery!  A 5+1 game with a matrix of 999,999,999,999 white balls, and 99,999,999 bonus balls.  Oh and it would be computerized drawings.  I'd like to see California win that once a month!

    I'm must have missed somthin important..(easy to win????)

          You had to have checked this forum out prior to joining did you not? Probably made out the sewer rats as well, don't let that get to you Ol Chap. It's can be a  demented family at times  but you get used to it. You didn't think you were joining a Church did you?
          As for the Admin- he doesn't hold people's hands Roy, l can see that you gonna fit right in.
          Welcome Roy.

                You aren't required to keep showing up just because you joined but most new members do, welcome aboard.

                  Maybe when you won, you set up a red flag?

                  Maybe its all your fault, they increased the cost!!!  I mean before you won it was easy!  Now that you had to go and be fancy pants and mastermind the game, it changed!!

                  Do you think powerful masters like fancy pants!!!

                  Well good luck to you anyway.  You have ther write idea!

                  The increase was too hard. For myself I decided to decrease my budget, that is one of the reasons why I don't do the break even and win anymore. The next step is playing once in a while, and maybe stop playing. For the summer I plan not to play at all. If my income had increased with the same raise factor of the ticket price, I still might want to play it. Finally I want to spend less time on the subject. I don't want to end up with a local 5 out of 75.

                    Like raising tropical fish, the less you put your hands in the tank the better everything works out.  If one fish is eating all the other fish admin may remove it, otherwise troll posts create more free content then everyone saying yup yup yup.

                      To answer the question...I haven't won because it's NOT too easy for me to win, just like you haven't won because it's not too easy for you.

                      But winners?  It's too easy for them.  A previous mega millions winner even told me it was way too easy.

                        Just curious, did the winner also tell you all about how Unicorns elude detection so well?

                        I must have done something wrong in my past life. Whatever I did wrong, It had to be something really bad. Green laugh
