Rigged lottery rigging story

Be the 1st to vote.

Here’s a likely fake story about rigging the lotteries. Lots of occult numerology, an incoherent story,  and other nonsense to obscure the google search of the growing realisation that the is fixed and there are (statistically) no big winners of any frequency.

If you want to gamble, it’s probably better to do it privately. At least the odds are probably better.

Played honestly, the odds of winning the $14-million Hot Ticket Lotto in Iowa are 29 million to one.

Played Eddie Tipton’s way, they were 100 per cent.

    Fake story. This guy, head of security and all, went to all that trouble to rig the result, yet forgot that ticket buyers get videotaped in the shop for identification purposes, so he couldn’t collect his winnings? Sure.

    Also the name: “Tipton” = Tipped on. (tip [UK English] means “to predict as likely to win or achieve something”)

    From 1984, Chapter 8:

    …They were talking about the Lottery. Winston looked back when he had gone thirty metres. They were still arguing, with vivid, passionate faces. 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 a living simply by selling systems, forecasts, and lucky amulets. Winston had nothing to do with the running of 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 non-existent persons. In the absence of any real inter-communication between one part of Oceania and another, this was not difficult to arrange….

      1984 was a blueprint and not the fiction that we are told. That passage explains it brilliantly and I believe it.
