What are the odds of meeting a major lottery winner?

Don't know but I have met people who have won the Michigan Daily Keno and I have met people who won the Michigan 6/49 game and someone whose family member hit the $5 scratcher here in Michigan for its top prize.

I also was getting my car fixed when The Limo was getting checked over that took the Newberry winners to Lansing ( they were on LCML)
I bumped into one of those winners when they came into town on a spending spree.

I was sitting two seats away (both were empty) from a gal who won top prize at a casino keno game.  Two different times I was standing in the $5 slot room and saw people hit all the jackpot symbols.

It always seems to be people around me but never me...what are the odds of that???
What?

    What system did you use, to get your winner?

    If they had won the Powerball, they would most likely respond "The winning ticket was a quick-pick", since about 70% of jackpot wins have been QP's. Precious few if any of the self-pick winners used a system for that matter.

    Scratchers ~ Cash 5 ~ Powerball ~ Mega Millions

      A couple that were personal friends of my father won the Powerball some years ago. Beyond spending $200 a month on tickets (when they were still $1), they had no real system.

        When I lived in CA, I met a man in Livermore, in a poker room. Never met him before, but one of the other players, introduced me. He chose to take the money in installments, and was not quitting his job. Paid off his house from first installment, bought a car, bank the rest and was going to bank future installments, after taxes. Sounded like, he had a plan.

                I haven't seen my nephews in years and winning a lottery jackpot wouldn't be a reason to change that.

                I have a few on my list as well.

                  I have a few to ask:

                  Who's your investor and what kind of returns are you getting ??

                  How much did you give away to friends and relatives ?

                  What lifestyle changes did you make ??

                  How much did you "just blow" on frivolous stuff after you won ???

                  Clip coupons or shop at Walmart ??

                    I would ask if he/she were happier now, or if they just traded one set of problems in for another?

                    I would ask if he/she lays awake at night worrying about losing it all?

                    I would ask if he/she plans to spend it all or if they are trying to make it last for future generations?

                    Really?Disapprove

                    Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                    The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                      I'd ask if he planned to keep on playing.

                        My 2nd. question; Are you willing to share the system or teach the system to another person. If they say, Yes. I only have one question left.

                          Great odds, If you play in the high rollers room, the private tables or if you like to relax in the V.I.P. ,room.

                            ...Is this the beginning or the end of your gambling/gaming routine?

                            Good Question- I certainly would walk away from the game if l won enough to last me till " casket time".. Why be greedy, you sure as heck can't take it with you?

                            I read where Sting the musician said that his not leaving the bulk of his fortune to his kids, his giving them a " starter kit" and then telling them to build on it, selfish?- don't think so.
