Does anyone really win the big prize?

Be the 1st to vote.

Rarely do we get good news follow ups to the so called big lottery winners. Case in point.

A Canadian man whose fortunes changed overnight two years ago when he went from being laid off to becoming a multi-millionaire has died in Ethiopia, Global Affairs Canada has confirmed.

His thumb in the original story looks a bit long. Is this story a case of wrapping up a sim in a sim story?

Why anyone who distrusts government or systems would participate in the system’s lottery defies all sense, especially when they don’t even have to prove someone wins. 

Better off to play an internal office pool. 

I still contend that all major wins are fictitious. 1 in 350 million odds are impossible to win. 

South Carolina, where someone purchased a ticket worth $1.537 billion (U.S.) at a convenience store , is one of a handful of states that play Mega Millions and allow winners to be anonymous.

Looking at these two Frick and Frack photoshop/actor creations is at least amusing. I like the crutch prop for effect to hint that he was in need of the win.

Orwell 1984

“The Lottery, with its weekly pay-out of enormous prizes, was the one public event to which the proles paid serious attention. It was probable that there were some millions of proles for whom the Lottery was the principal if not the only reason for remaining alive. It was their delight, their folly, their anodyne, their intellectual stimulant. Where the Lottery was concerned, even people who could barely read and write seemed capable of intricate calculations and staggering feats of memory. There was a whole tribe of men who made their living simply by selling systems, forecasts, and lucky amulets. Winston had nothing to do with the Lottery, which was managed by the Ministry of Plenty, but he was aware (indeed everyone in the party was aware) that the prizes were largely imaginary. Only small sums were actually paid out, the winners of the big prizes being nonexistent persons.”

Making lottery winners secret

gaiarickylike this

I’m still quite sure big lottery winners are fake since the numbers just don’t come up frequently enough to keep people interested. This story gives a plausible deniability explanation as to why the media can keep the fake names secret and not make up a sim.

Once more, the best advice to future suckers is don’t play the lottery. You’d be better off playing one in an office for a few hundred bucks where you know the people who will pay you out.

The winning numbers triple-checked and the lottery ticket signed, the New Hampshire woman knew her life was about to change in a very positive way — except for one petrifying thing. As the winner of last month’s $560 million Powerball, she would soon be the world’s newest owner of a nine-digit bank account. But because of lottery rules, everyone in the world would know about it — neighbours, old high school friends, con artists, criminals. Now the woman is asking a judge to let her keep the cash —

Recycling finks

Anyone who wastes their money on lotteries is funding a fraud.
Notice how the stories are almost always written the same, like a recycled template.
In this case, they even have the gall to recycle the winner.

As the saying goes, third time’s a charm.

An Edmonton couple is walking away with a cool $8.1 million after striking it big on a February Lotto 6/49 draw.

Barbara Fink didn’t know how much she had won when she checked her numbers online the night of the Feb. 22 lottery draw, but she wasted no time calling her husband, Douglas, who was working out of town at the time.

Apparently multiple fake winners are faked in the media all the time all over.

Incidentally, the lotteries were adopted by governments to put a damper in illegally run lotteries. This was done to “protect” the people from cheating. They then were spun off into crown corporations to be run more “efficiently”. I suspect this is where the fraud began and the accountability ended.

Ironically, illegal lotteries are probably more fair than the state corporation ones. You’ll make more from office pool draws than the state lotteries.

Not even trying anymore

Be the 1st to vote.

The scriptwriters aren’t even trying anymore. A multi-culti family that don’t even look related with different names? How obvious do they have to make it?

Major 7 number big payday lotteries are rarely, if ever, won. The odds are just too great. This winning story is certainly a fabrication – a lame one. No numbers, no detailed background stories – nothing. They don’t need to. You just fill in the blanks with your own imagination.

Reality is finally setting in for a Toronto family who won the $55-million Lotto Max jackpot in June, and what a sweet reality it is.

Serbia lotto fixed

Ok an arrogant North American might believe that a poorer European country might fix their lotteries, but not here where everything is triple checked?

Think again and have a laugh at this classic…and stop buying lottery tickets. Your local bookie will give better odds.

Lottery confusion

Be the 1st to vote.

Before fakeology, I just assumed some of the hicks who won the lottery were plain stupid.

Now, since I think most mega lottery winners are hoaxes, I believe that if they use an actor to portray a winner, it’s easier to simulate their death or bankruptcy to write them out of their public role of deception.

Did a Powerball winner overdose on cocaine while surrounded by hookers and die? Was a Georgia lottery winner murdered in his own home? Is there a lottery curse? These are just a few of the questions that have been taking over social media lately.
