Watching this new show on ID channel called Your Numbers Up. When it comes on the story is about lottery winner Jeffery Dampier. It's blowing my mind because there's is so much new info. Did anyone know that Jeffery's wife bought the winning $20 million ticket? That Jeffery was married to Debra when he started dating Crystal? Jeffery's spending was so out of control they had to get separate bank accounts. 4 years after the win they split the money and divorced. Jeffery married Crystal, who's sister and boyfriend murdered him. The repeat is at 01:00am.

    Seems he brought about his own problems.  Victoria ended his wicked ways. Info is from wikipedia

    'Dampier and his ex-wife won the Illinois Lottery jackpot in 1996.[4] It was worth approximately US $20 million.[5] They eventually divorced and split the money 50/50. Soon after, Jeffrey met Crystal Jackson, dated and married her. Two years later, the two moved to Tampa Bay.[2]

    Once in Florida, Dampier used the money to invest in a popcorn business called Kassie's Gourmet Popcorn, based in Tampa Bay's Channelside entertainment district.[6] Shortly after, Jeffrey moved Crystal's two sisters, Victoria and Terri Jackson, to Tampa as well. With no means of their own, Dampier took care of both of the sisters' finances and continued to buy presents for many of their family members, including his sister-in-law Victoria Jackson (with whom he was having an affair).[5]

    Murder[edit]

    In 2005, Dampier was murdered by Victoria Jackson and her boyfriend Nathaniel Jackson, presumably for his jackpot winnings."

      Well this info puts a whole new slant on things. For one, I never knew he was married before Crystal. That he was dating Crystal while still being married to his first wife makes the fact that he started sleeping with Crystal's sister not seem like such a shocker (or out of his character) now. Crystal did talk a lot about him showering her with expensive gifts when they started dating so the fact that he went spend crazy right after his win fits into place. Sounds to me that for the fact he was mercilessly murdered, he'd have ended up one of those winners who'd have lost all his money. Doubt the income from the popcorn shop would have been enough for him to live on.

      I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

      The odds are about the same.

          Sometimes we are our own worst enemies. Then comes family and friends. Then stranger danger.

           For whom the gods wish to destroy they make that winner suddenly wealthy.   This is a quote from the David Lee Edwards story found by using the Search box here on Lottery Post. This quote came from an ancient Greek philosopher named, Euripedes. Europe probably is named after him. Brilliance can be found in the past.

           I have heard some lottery winners called,"Freaks of Economics".

           Another Lottery winner, Steven White, recalls a wise saying,"Winning the Lottery is like throwing miracle grow onto your character flaws."

           Andrew Stoltman a lawyer who has represented many winners who have been defrauded out of their millions says,"Winning the Lottery is like throwing blood or chum into the water and everybody devours them."

          Frown

           I've been rich and I've been poor. Believe me, rich is better. 

           Attributed to Joe E. Lewis and others

            Thanks for telling us this was on. You can tell the first wife really loved him.

              New episode Saturday night.

              Your Number's Up

              Fortune's Curse

              Family man Joe Rukaj wins $17.5 million in the New York Lottery. At first, everything seems idyllic, but in the rosy glow following the win, Joe makes a decision that will set two families on a fatal path to war.

                I watched this too. Amazing they killed him for something like $8500 when the guy probably would of gave them one of his Vettes.

                The NY lottery winner episode should be on SAT @ 10pm.

                    What a very sad story.  Looks like he will be out of prison next year, 2017

                    And good luck everybody on the PB drawing.

                      Does anyone know what game he won it on? The ticket in the episode said Lotto but they showed a Mega Millions drawing and the ticket was no help as it only showed 4 numbers.

                            I read that the jackpot wa 35 mil and he split it with another person. They dont say whether it was the annuity or the lump sum. But after federal and state taxes he took home a lot less than 17.5 million bucks.

                              It showed on the show a clip of him being interviewed after his win and the interviewer mentions that he'll get yearly checks so he took the annuity. Was the lump sum even available back then given it wasn't until sometime in the 90's when players had the option to take it instead?.
