Winning ticket was sold literally a few miles from my work

Sent one of my guys to buy twenty tickets last night , he picked the wrong gas station

LOL

First to find out someone won in WI this morning

Then to find out it was Green Bay this afternoon

To say the excitement checking the numbers at work then blah blah blah to finding out this afternoon it was sold right down the street

My phone is not ringing with anyone that won yet - Did I say yet

Played in a pool at work for twenty years. Watched people win all over the states. Not us!
Bought one Powerball ticket on Wednesday night. Didn't win! The Idiots running the Lottery
have too many sets of numbers to make it worth while. We don't need one person winning
700 Million dollars, we need six hundred people winning 1.1 Million dollars! Too much money will ruin
your life. Just enough will give you a better life. When the pot gets nuts, I buy one ticket!
Good Luck!

Perhaps we need seven people winning 100 Million dollars each?

Even Fifty people each getting $14 million would be great. And having 50 times better chance of winning...more ticket sales!

The lottery system is a F'd up scam. Who needs $500 million ? Ten winners at $50 mil is a better distribution. It should be capped, to enable the runner's up MORE money. I once got 5 out of 6 numbers, payout was only $1,500 !!! Compared to millions for the winner !! It's rigged so the government reaps most of the cash.

It is the big jackpots that get the most people off of their asses to buy tickets.
It makes me laugh because their logic is so flawed.....$200 million can really change your life!
Yeah? 20 million can really change your life too and that is a low payout by lottery standards.
Years back, the CA lottery had a game called "Weekly Grand" where the winner received $1000 a week for 20 years. That isn't a huge amount of cash but imagine how you'd be able to buy car parts, tools, nice things for the woman and all that with extra money like that.

EXACTLY... and who gets a bigger share of the "big jackpots" ?? THE GOVERNMENT ! This lottery system is only a revenue generator for the Big-Spending Government.

There are other industries where the Government acts like a Mafia.
Due to taxes, they make more per gallon of gasoline and Diesel than the oil companies do.
Cigarettes and Cigars....the Taxes on them surely surpass the profit the tobacco companies make.
It is disgusting that all they do is wait for their money while the companies risk investing their money to make a product.
