Are you happier when a regular lottery player wins a jackpot?

 l make no bones about it- l don't give a rats #/% who wins just as long as there are multiple winner's of  colossal Jackpots. This past three way split was refreshing considering that we got a " feel good story" from a woman who really needed it..

I guess it does make a difference to some LP members based on their "congrats" to winners assuming I suppose, those winners read LP. Some will even give congrats to trusts and anonymous winners. The feel good stories are nice, but I didn't win, nobody I know won so who cares.

        I share the same views. I have started playing the euro millions lottery nearly every week 2 1/2 years a go and strongly believe that I'll win someday hopefully this or next week when the jackpot starts at £75m :-)

          Yep just regular people like I think his name was Chris Shaw who won like 200+ million pretax of course, who said the first thing he wanted to do was fix his teeth. Or Holly Lahti who was one of the ones who got to split a huge jackpot, she had been in an abusive relationship and had to split it with her abusive ex but we hope he drops off in a meth overdose and she get his share back anyways, Yep everyday people who are just making it are the ones i love to hear have won

            I Agree!  Not one of those winners ever came to LP to post a "Thank you for your Congratulations".

              I had no idea a winner of either MM/PB  HAD to be a  member of LP to receive Congratulations!

                Everyone is just as deserving as the other...whether it is their first game or playing the same #'s for 20 years. It must be kind of stressful playing the same #'s for years. I know you can play advance games but what happens when one gets busy or a family member has an emergency or there might be an epic snowstorm, etc.

                  I never buy whole hog the stories that come out of these press conferences of lottery winners. 

                  Player's first time

                  Only played one line

                  Will use money to save the human race

                   

                  I am not bothered at all by who wins. I extend my congrats and go back to tweaking my secret lottery recipe so maybe next time it's me.

                  "Will use money to save human race" LOL love that one

                  Cash 4 life 3/5 numbers= $25 (9/1/14)
                  TAKE 5 4/5 numbers= $775.00 (2/21/15)

                  im bound to win the jackpot!!  Cool

                      geos*5666 had another jackpot matching prediction the other day and at least he'll get to see some well deserved congrats.

                        I'm not happier but just happy. It's really tough to win big so a win by anybody is a great story.

                        That money's gone fo ever

                          I Agree! I only play when: MM is $15M or above and PB is $40M or above!

                          I Agree! I think some of the people who say it was their first time or occasional purchase do so out of fear what others would think. How you can tell they are lying about that is their response to question if they plan to continue playing the lottery? Most say, 'why not? I already have a ticket for the next drawing.

                          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've always felt a little 'annoyed 'when someone an inch from the grave won or somebody who is already in a line of work that commands 6 figures

                            or more.
