Lotteries - Real or Rigged?

mmjm

I have never known anyone to win big on any lottery, charity or otherwise.  Do you know of people that actually win?  Not just people we read in the paper.Anyway maybe there is someone out there that actually gets lucky at the lotteries but it is not us.

Lotteries

I've never known anyone to win big on the lottery. I will admit, I do buy some of the $2 and $5 Jumbo Bucks scratch offs. The most I've won is $50. I try not to spend but a few dollars per month because the chances of winning are slim.

Lottaries

I have know a couple of people who have won small things on the hospital charities, but even in this case I have never known anyone to win big. The most I have won was $200 on a $3 scratch ticket. I buy a lottario ticket each week and occasionally a lottomax, but only if the prize is a big amount.

We have a better chance to be struck by lightening twice than winning the lottery in our lifetime. Whoever does win is super lucky! I wouldn't mind a few million in my bank account!! :)

My dad always said you can't win if you don't have a ticket. I buy a Lottario ticket every week, but rarely buy the others. I guess someone has to get lucky, but I for one am not putting my name in anymore contests because they really don't win.

The Lottery

Hi mmjm,I know a woman who won one million dollars just a few doors down from me and she hasn't changed a bit.She doesn't have a large family or anything like that.This woman has only one teenage daughter and a husband.She just goes about life as if nothing happened.This was last year that she won and she is the same neighbour I've always known.It didn't change her a bit,which is a good thing.

Lotteries

I admit I am a bit of a cynic. I come from a fair sized family and we have bought tickets for more then 50 years between our parents, siblings and self. I am sure there are people who have won and of course we read about them in the paper. The government runs the lotteries so I guess I find it hard to believe that everyday taxpayers get lucky at these kinds of lotteries. I buy tickets but if they do not win so much as a ticket price back I stop for a while and try again.
