Have any of you ever been a regular at a store claiming to sell the winning ticket? The clerks from these stores are on the news more often then the
winners I've noticed. But they couldn't all be actors could they? Are they bribed or maybe bullied by "men in black" to keep quiet? It's
doubtful, because wouldn't someone have blabbed by now? Maybe they put a hit on them. That would certainly shut them up. But real people have to win
occasionally so no one gets suspicious. So just like casinos, the state pays out just enough to keep suckers hooked.
It's funny, after playing keno for several months at the bar I worked at, I was convinced it was rigged. Whatever numbers are not picked or picked
the least, the machine doesn't draw. Period. Keno is also a state run game and if it's rigged, why wouldn't the lottery be too? The machine only
has to pick the winning numbers from those no one played, then some actor's hired to perpetuates the illusion further. Maybe actors take some sort of
oath of secrecy we're unaware of.
But if a real winner, known by real people, didn't surface from time to time, the illusion would shatter. Maybe real people only win when there are
no unused numbers. And have you ever noticed how many supposed winners tend to be non-citizens from third world countries? Is that so we'll assume
they took there winnings and dispeared back home where they can live like kings? Or perhaps it's a ploy to entice these individuals even more.
I've been telling my Husband for years I wouldn't doubt it if the lottery was a scam. But he continues to throw away his money every week anyway,
just like all the other dopes.
I will vouch that scratchers and the other small stake lottery games, are the real deal though. My brother plays all the time and wins two to three
hundred dollars consistently. Even my husband wins twenty dollars or so from time to time.
I hate gambling myself. I know I'll never win and I never do.
