Lame lotto effort

Be the 1st to vote.

The budget for Canadian /hoaxes must have been cut: a bad photoslop job and no story to dig into for the1;biggest win ever”.

Well, at least three occult type can be found.

How can anyone be left that consumes media believe this crap?


A group of 12 co-workers stepped forward Thursday to claim the $60-million jackpot from last week’s Lotto Max .

“There was screaming, yelling, people on the table” said Dennis Cartier, who is one of the Canadian Black Book employees to share the prize.

The 12-person group had been participating in group play for the past eight years with little luck. The largest amount they had ever won was $90.

The jackpot was the biggest in Lotto Max history.

    This story smells very fishy indeed. The Lotto syndicate manager is Dennis Cartier. Supposedly this was the sequence of events..
    “He checked his ticket at a gas station and couldn’t believe his eyes. He then raced home, signed the ticket and put it on the refrigerator.

    “I wanted to stay calm, eat my burrito and check the numbers again online. Every single number matched up, so I went back to where I bought the ticket and that’s when it all became very real.”
    That’s Canada, where maybe things are different, but in Britain, Lotto wins above some trivial amount – if they even exist – are never paid out by the retailer; they have to be claimed directly from the HQ of the Lotto operator.

    Those rules are printed on every ticket. So why would Cartier “go back to where I bought the ticket”? For what purpose? It’s not like they’d pay out $60m to him over the counter. And wouldn’t it be courteous to inform his 11 syndicate buddies of their wonderful news first?

    And in his narrative, why didn’t Cartier identify the place he’d bought the ticket? It’s a major part of the narrative. And wouldn’t the winner want to effuse a little joy and thanks towards the retailer for selling him the winner? Oddly, it’s left to the Post and others to inform us that “The winning ticket was purchased at Petro Canada on Kennedy Road in Brampton.”

    The Post also lists the other eleven syndicate members who will apparently share the $60m winnings with Cartier. Are they sims, or hoax actors? Why would any of them want to be identified? Is it obligatory? In the British Lotto, anonymity for winners is guaranteed by default; which makes sense. After all, it’s not in the winners’ interest – it’s a security risk – to boast publicly of such a massive win.

    When we do see £150m Lotto winners in the newspapers, posing for photos with their giant cheques, it’s perhaps a strong clue that it’s all but a fake. Just another grand hoax to boost the Lotto’s popularity.……
