    Some blue moons back there was this old gentleman a veteran who loved numbers & was a regular parlor Keno player at the Boulder Station Casino, Las Vegas he unceremoniously bets chocolate chips (5K)  on one number #12 wins and bet again winning a total payout of $30,000. I can't give his name but if anyone wants to verify call the keno parlor @ Boulder Casino & inquire with keno manager, supervisor etc. They nothing about how he mysteriously made the selection but he generously took care of staff.

    Do you think he knew something????

      Yes, Yes and Yes. Some of the people on this site are even jackpot winners but nobody is talking. No No

      If nobody's talking then how do u know some people are jackpot winners?

        A man that played golf at the golf course i work at by the name of Carl Coffman hit it big back around 1990 when powerball was called lotto america i think it was. His wife bought a $2 ticket at a Krogers here. This was back when your winnings were paid over a 20 year period. Her win was 17250000.

          lottologix, Those past lottery losers are like lighthouses. "They warn us of the rocks ahead". That is a Dave Ramsey quote. 

           We here at Lottery Post love success stories and want every LP Member to live a successful life after winning.

          No No

          I've heard many people say "the easier the money comes to you the easier it will leave you". That many lottery winners think that because they hit a jackpot once, that it will happen again. It makes sense that if you don't have to work hard for something, subconsciously a person may not respect it. I've heard of people who were good with money that they've made but hit the lottery and then end up not being so good with their money...

             Do you know about Andrew Jackson, Jack, Whitaker? He was a millionaire before hitting the jackpot. He did not know how to say NO. His daughter and granddaughter both died of possible drug overdoses. A young teenage boy died of a drug overdose in one of Jack's homes.

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

              That's the first person come to mind when I read Gym Rice's post.

              After all Whittaker ran a construction business worth 15 Million, you would think he would know how to handle $.

                Maybe he was running a construction company that should have been worth $50 million.

                  That's a possibility I hadn't considered !

                        I know one guy who won 3 million on scratch ticket. Walked away with 1.8 million, and another guy who won 100,000 on a scratch ticket. 69,000 after taxes. Burned through that like it was water.

                          Does that mean he still has all of it?

                            I would tend to think that a statement like that means... It's gone

                              A couple who were good friends of my dad won the Powerball years ago, when it had been in existence for less than a decade. Compared to today, the jackpot wasn't very high. They played religiously, spending at least a couple hundred dollars per month on tickets, which were only a buck each then.
