I had a great admiration for Gail Howard's lotto savvy and techniques and her always very courteous staff. I owned her old DOS software (actually purchased it twice) and in the late 1900's I with a small group of people at work missed a $65M lotto jackpot by one number using the software. One of my co-workers was very angry at me for not having made a mistake while marking the lottery slip in order to catch the number that was missing which was No. 1. I had chosen No. 2. Ooouch!
Rest in Peace both Gail Howard and Betty Hicks.
Thanks so much BobP for having posted the link. Otherwise I would have been in the dark about this sad news.
This is the downside of picking numbers for a lottery pool. You get people mad at you if you don't win and then you get people mad at you 'cause you didn't win enough!
Pair that with the problems of collecting the money every week and its a job I wouldn't take on for anything, in spite of the advantages of being able to wheel a larger pool of numbers and play more tickets.
Good to hear you got a big win with Gail's software.
