Re: Something Weird Going on with States with Big Lottery Wins!!!
The government lotteries have always been crooked. ALWAYS.

Don't play the government lotteries.

Too bad we can't bring back neighborhood bookies. They were far more honest and if they welched....they got killed. When I was a kid my mother had to cook on a stove where a welching bookie had his faced burned off. He died outside screaming in the snow.

And that is why bookies, unlike govt employees, were generally honest.
 Quoting: PresidentElect BlueStateRebel


The payout is only like 50% of the money put into lotteries. There are so many earmarks for schools, parks, etc. taken out on lottery wagers it is a terrible return. Even a tight slot machine is a better bet.

Player on player games are best IMO. Poker (I don't play) is one of the best but you need to know how to play or you will get rolled quick.

Horse racing can be a decent return and you can have a whole group win by betting the same horses, which for me makes for the best nights out. Sports betting is going to get real big soon and is also a far better wager. Also can have group wins.

I've been to the track with noob friends who don't follow my plays and then get mad when I hit for several hundred and they lose. I look at the Racing Form, know the jockeys, trainers and horses, tell them who I like and they bet random shit hoping they can get lucky and then pretend they know as much or more than me. Yeah, they might get lucky and hit, but even I listen to other people who know what they are doing.

I'd much prefer to bet with a gaming institution than be part of anybody getting their face burned off.

Re: Something Weird Going on with States with Big Lottery Wins!!!
Today my BF and I were looking at the big Megamillions lottery results. We noticed that the big winners were always in the same states with the voting anomalies. So he researched a bit and found the same for the Powerball. I asked him if Dominion was their software and he could not uncover that info. But he said that 38 states use the same software and the 12 that don’t are red states. Also, the same blue states win over and over. Which means that those states receive large tax incomes from those winnings. Which means that the poor Hopium people who buy the tickets are just aiding the blue states and don’t really have a chance to win? Please run with this, if you can.

I agree with your theory. But what about the swing states? I say this because my dad was part of a 207 million win in Ohio

Every state allows you to enter your own numbers your own choice as opposed to using the automated selection. You get a confirmation of the numbers you choose when you choose the option where you fill it out yourself.

Hah but in most ways a 0 means absence of anything, combined with the 4 digit number of 6666 your chances of getting 500, 050, or 005 are quite low... Only more curious would be if it was 666, 000, or perhaps 555. Interesting to see, anyway

They are ball games. There is no software other than the terminals that sell the tickets. You can pick your own numbers. If they got to the people who inspect the balls then any balls they choose could pop up. The exact way to do it has been in a movie and a tv series. In this case, offer 10 or even a hundred million to the ball watchers and you have a rigged game.

Mega millions is now selected by computer, not ball. You should check if powerball is still a ball or now computer

People who win lotteries end up regretting it every time

And your life expectancy goes down about 30 years too.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79970828


Fucking this. Unless it’s under a million. The big hits above 5 million the people are cursed. It tears families to shreds they end up dead or tragic ends. If you win big you can’t keep it. It must be used for benevolence immediately. Build a library. Refurbish your town. Pay off children cancer bills. Anything but you can’t keep it.

Re: Something Weird Going on with States with Big Lottery Wins!!!
i can think of so many other ways of picking numbers without using machines,

if i had a lottery, every week would be a new way to pick the winning numbers...


for example...

shoot the balls out of a cannon, the six closest to the bulls eye, are the lucky numbers..


have fifty people secretly numbered in a maze.
the numbers only seen by camera by viewers like you home,
the first 6 who leave the maze, become the 6 lucky numbers...


not some ball machine that can be fixed using weights and old footage.

EVERYTHING is rigged.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22255432


They literally know every number combination issued 15 minutes before the "drawing" since the ticket sales are shut down 15 minutes before the "drawing". It's all electronic at the speed of light. If it wasn't rigged they'd allow ticket purchases up until the last moment. But they don't.

There was a YT vid showing a european lottery drawing where the numbers were accidentally revealed before the balls were even drawn.

Great comments!!!! My father was a big gambler when I was a kid and his favorite thing was the horses. Horses were big then, not so much now. A lot of tracks have closed down or are in bad shape. I used to sit with him and go over the Telegraph (the racing newspaper) and we'd pick out our horses. He bet, of course, but I would just pick out which ones I liked. I had a system when I was about 7 years old. Every horse player has a system, lol. And it worked!!!! More often than not, my horses won. If I'd had money on them, I would have made a nice penny.

The numbers pool frequently worked out for us too, even for my grandma. You come out with a number, maybe it's a number you play regularly like your social or phone number etc. Or like my mother, you dream up numbers - she would dream up a number and it would hit! My father would make a few hundreds off these hits and they made a significant impact to us.

I wish we could bring horse racing back as long as the horses are treated well. It's a great entertainment and people can actually make some money.

 Quoting: panther0621


I saw people putting $700 into it routinely out East on payday and that was decades ago (eastern Connecticut, fishing town).

RI/CT border is blue collar and the lottery lines were insane. I never played it. Would be in a line 20 deep and they would open a 'non lottery' register. I'd move past 19 people and be on my way. EVERYBODY played it out there.

I get the appeal. Huge payout, can change many lives for generations. A total hero if you hit, even if you give it away. The return is so low, though. You really got no realistic shot. A total sucker bet, but if you are the 1 in a hundred million winner then Congrats, but the number of non-winners and payout rate are atrocious figures.

This thread was posted before the drawing that came AFTER the drawing where Powerball got hit last Wednesday,Jan 20th for 731 million.

And most of the comments were posted before Powerball announced the winners for the draw on the 23rd.

You peeps missed the real high strangeness.

Powerball got hit again on the 23rd for 20 million.

There were also 43 tickets with 5/5,8 of those worth 2 million and the others worth 1 million.

Powerball winners for Jan. 23:

A player in New Jersey won the $23 million Powerball jackpot and an incredible 43 players won at least $1 million in the drawing held on Saturday, Jan. 23. The extraordinary total of big winners comes one day after a player in Michigan won a $1 billion jackpot.

· Along with the grand prize winner, 43 players matched all five white numbers drawn to win $1 million. Those tickets were sold in Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Puerto Rico, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin.

Four lucky players each won $1 million and two lucky players each won $2 million. The winning tickets matched all five of the white ball numbers but did not match the Powerball number.

In addition to the $23.2 million POWERBALL jackpot hit in New Jersey, Saturday's drawing produced a total of 43 second-tier winners - the largest number of millionaires created in a single U.S. Lottery drawing in the last five years! The winning tickets were spread across 18 jurisdictions including: Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Puerto Rico, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin.
