    Hi, JJ--I think they had more money to play with after getting lucky with the first win--and that's how they won the 2nd time.  And I don't blame them for continuing to buy tickets.

          But buying more tickets for a drawing does not guarantee a win.  I could buy 100,000,000 powerball quick picks for the next drawing and it's VERY likely that I'd lose miserably.

          These people should travel here everytime a PB or MM jackpot gets over $300 million, win repeatedly and become mega billionaires.

              If I could buy 100,000,000 tix I would'nt bother playing, just keep the $200,000,000

                Your own thread betrays you, you went a Bridge too far with this one- How so you ask, by This...

                 

                " A  Spokesman for Camelot said " This is an extraordinary situation where somebody's been fortunate enough to win it twice. As you can imagine we see winners who win once who are very, very shocked!"

                If winning the lottery is SO EASY: Why is it an extraordinary situation, why are they fortunate enough & more importantly, why are winners shocked because of winning ONCE ?

                ** Your so called " Superior Wisdom " or logic as Spock would say....is Flawed.

                    He is only speaking of jackpot winners who win another jackpot.  When you consider the number of jackpot winners and the numbers of them who win a second jackpot, their odds do seem better than those of regular players who have never won a jackpot.

                      You must be New here.His other threads would suggest otherwise.Nevertheless it would seem that he has an ally who agrees with his " Superior Wisdom" . More power to you...both.

                        I think that their odds would only seem better if their spending habits were equal to those who have never won. But the reality is that they can afford to spend more (or more often) and they do, even if they don't want to admit it. Why do you think rich people get richer? Because they take more risks, with more money. A great lottery example is that woman from Texas who hits big jackpots every few years. To the casual observer she seems luckier than the average person, but then again, the average person doesn't buy thousands of tickets a year like she does. I am willing to bet that she spends the equivalent of an average person's annual salary on lottery tickets alone.

                        If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
                        If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

                          When you think about it, there are only a few winners to lose while there are millions of losers who can lose.  When you talk about PB and MM jackpot winners, how many people are you talking about?  At 25-50 winners a year over twenty years, maybe 500-1000 winners.  If one of those winners win again, that 1 in 500-1000, if one those losers win that's 1 in millions.

                              Using words such as " Absolute Proof, States that Win, States that need to be Punished, States that must be kicked out of the MUSL" are what people consider ridiculous- unfortunately, you and your cousin seem to think you proving a point. No one hates you- it's your asinine thought process. That's all.
