    I've won the lottery!

    I hardly ever play, as its a waste of time.

    Anyone know what you get for three and the bonus?

    In the states, they print a web address where you can see what combinations will win what based on the current jackpot.

    maybe there's a site for you to see the same perhaps?

    Isn't the lottery a tax on people that are bad at math?

    Tells you everything from the best numbers to what your favourite numbers have won in the past. Doesn't tell you next week's results though...

    I thought it was a short story about stoning a woman?

    What, the Bible? I thought that was about Jesus and stuff? Or at least the second bit?

    I know someone that won 6 million about 10 years ago.

    My mother's place of work almost won the lottery one year, 20 people had bought a bunch of tickets and one had the numbers 1-22-42-53-2-01 and the winning numbers were 1-22-42-53-2-02 (not the actual numbers, I don't recall them, I just know they lost by one number difference). They ended up getting $100,000 instead of $53M.

    How was their experience?

    I saw a show a while back that covered some past winners and people were incredibly jealous of their success, to the point of believing they had 'sucked' all the good luck out of their town and it wasn't worth playing the lottery again.

    hmhm, that would suck to lose by 1 number


    and why is it that when people win the powerball or whatever big lottery is near you it is always a group of people from the same work place who all pitched in? i mean the odds from 1/10000000000000 to 20/10000000000000 isn't that much...weird

    don't think so.. but there is a guy named lot.. and sometimes people 'cast lots' to decide which would have to do a chore..

    Fruitloops, I almost won the lottery once too... Although it was the other way around, only one number matched, the other 4 didn't.. and I got 0 instead of 10M -- what a ripoff!
