I am starting to feel like it is a scam or something. I played the Lotto, Mega and Powerball a few times a week. Anyone?
It's not a scam. My ex- boss's mom won about 15 years ago. 12 1/2 million. She split the pot, ironically, with a neighbor who lived a few blocks away from her. They had never ran into each other in all the years of living in that neighborhood (Ardsley, N.Y. ). I hit 4 out of 5 numbers on Take 5 twice. Just saying.
When I was in high school I used to track LOTTO numbers for months and then pick the ones that hit most often when I played. This was before personal computers were commonly used. I managed to get 4 of 6 and the bonus # once. I think made a few hundred bucks on that hit. I thought I was a genius at the time. Lol.
My sister won a scratch off for 5,000 a week for life. She is a mother and housewife so she was not working. but her bum husband retired on it at 32. He is was making like 70K a year so now it's like he has a 260K job but without working. She told me they take home 172K a year now and buy their own medical benefits for 700 a month. They get a check quarterly for 42K that's not a bad setup at all. Glad for my sister but I still think he's a bum.
My cousin hot the 10,000 a week for life and get's quarterly checks of 85K. It was a $30 scratch off that he bought on his way home from getting fired from his job as a Sears Manager. He told me he went in to the store to get a hot dog and saw the $30 ticket and had to have it. The problem was he only had $30. So he went and bought Soda and Chips so that he could charge the food and used the cash for the $30 ticket. He went home told hos wife he was fired and handed her the ticket. She did not scratch it til the next morning over coffee while he was sleeping late all depressed. When he heard her screaming he came down and found out he did not have to work for the rest of his life. His is 47.
I hit 2nd place with 5 out of 5 numbers but did not have the mega ball. I won 250K. Also, my brother in-laws parents hit $12M mega back in 2009. It works but you have to be lucky.
