I've been buying MM and PB for years and started to buy C4L too. I bought every day for these games atleast $10 each time normally is like $10-40 each time. But WHY all I see are those old ppl hit the jackpot? all winner stories were some old ppl with a big check. Some ppl say its because old ppl have lots of time to play lotto. Thats why they get to win. Dman, I do the same but why I don't get to win? I do had one time that I came so close to hit 1M with MM. But Still I do believe that the lotto are rigged.

    Doesn't need to be rigged with odds that are astronomical. I've come <snip> close to hitting a jackpot myself and I've felt at times it must be rigged too, but then I look at the odds and realize my chances are slim to none and the results are to be expected.

      Odds of winning Powerball: 1 in 292 million

      Odds of winning Mega Millions: 1 in 259 million

      Odds of winning c4l: 1 in 21 million

      Odds of winning P4: 1 in 10,000

      Odds of winning P3: 1 in 1000

      Try Playing a game with lower odds.

Thats why they get to win. Dman, I do the same but why I don't get to win? I do had one time that I came so close to hit 1M with MM. But Still I do believe that the lotto are rigged.

        Last Sunday just for kicks I ran off 50 lines for Texas Lotto on LP's RNG then checked them against Saturday night's draw.

        Not one 3 number match for $3. Not one.

        Odds for Texas Lotto are 1 in 25,827,165. With those kinds of odds, it's easy to see why you and I don't win. It's simply luck.

        So, lesson for you is like Raven said, play a game with lower odds, or instead of playing big chunks of money, play one or two lines only. It really only takes one ticket to win.

        But to say the games are rigged just because somebody besides you wins, or only old people win, (which is nonsense), just tells me you really don't understand how lottery games are set up and what the odds are of the jackpot games.

        Another poster said it very well. With the kind of odds we play against, it doesn't have to be rigged.

          The odds are high, but I also think that it is somewhat rigged too.

            Of course it's rigged. Why do u think small states like RI (did have a winner last year) & DE hardly ever get jackpot winners and big states like NY CA get a lot of PB MM winners, but not in TX? It's not rigged consistently to justify not all big states win and not all small states never win. Why is that winning tix are never sold in a store from say Beverly Hills or Malibu? Winners seem to buy tix in the ghettos, like last PB winners are from Trenton NJ, a big time ghetto.

              You need to view some actual drawings.
              If you see anything that makes you believe the mechanical ball machines are rigged, please share it with the LP community.

                  One of those big Powerball ticket was sold  in a non ghetto State of Tennessee

                    I think it is just luck.  Maybe those "old people" (I'm blessed to be one) just keep playing until they get lucky.  I only play Cash 5 and Mega lately because the tickets are just $1 which lets me play more numbers.   I'd love to get one of those big checks. Smile

                      It's just blind luck. 

                       

                      I know now that is wasting my money but I still play. Thousands of people play cash 5 in my state and there's one or two winners a month. Millions of people play mega millions weekly and there's a winner every few months. There's no chance of me winning but I still hope to get lucky.

                          i agree with the big jackpots.  The stars must align right.  We had a big winner in SC abt 4 or 5 yrs ago.  I had 3 of the main numbers and the powerball so i got a $100 i think from that ticket but just shy of the big money.  they lived in the states capital which is not too far from me and we had been traveling through there around the same time, but I didnt buy a ticket until i got home.  close but its just the timing i think.
