I agree--look at all the unclaimed money every year.  How smart do you have to be to check the numbers and turn in a claim for a winning ticket?

"How smart do you have to be to check the numbers and turn in a claim for a winning ticket?"

Smarter than the dummies who win and misplace their tickets or don't bother to check them.

    I think both with the recent rash of wins in both MM and PB at relative low jackpot levels.

    Lottery games are games of the lottery. Luck or intelligence, is not the right question. Do you have the money to play, might be the right question.

      No!  It is just dumb luck if you're in the right state.

              To be honest it would be nice to win a huge jackpot.  But lately I aim for the 5+0 in MM,  5+0 odds are astronomical but less than the full JP win odds

                I would rather assign rations of luck than of  intelligence to lotto draws win or lose.

                2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

                keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

                      No!  It is just dumb luck if you're in the right state.

                      Or Puerto Rico which had a winner recently. Oops.

                      Guess you don't have to be in a state to win.

                      CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

                      A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)

                              As a systems player, I enjoy it most when the jackpot is won and split between two people where one was a quick pick and the other a self pick. One relied completely on luck while the other having tweaked his/her system over the years went up against Goliath odds and won! I am very curious to see if any of these  recent winners were self picks. I know a win is a win, but I think if I am ever fortunate enough to snag the big one I would feel proud and certainly validated after 2 decades of chasing this unicorn.
