Nothing in this article to investigate, you’ll just have to believe that this actor won all the marbles. The comic insult to the story is that a “credit risk” manager won the money. Lotteries are the most foolish “investment” anyone can make, and as such prey upon the poor.

I how wonder how much money they really bring in?

Winning $70M Lotto Max ticket sold in Ontario

toronto.citynews.ca/2020/01/08…

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.

Jesus saves – and wins too

Be the 1st to vote.

Just in time to stoke the Christmas lottery ticket sales (many people give these for gifts), Joshua (Jesus) wins – nearto his birthday!

The Christmas holidays will be extra festive for Joshua Caines after the Calgarian came forward Friday to claim his $50-million Lotto Max prize after not knowing for months that he held the winning ticket.

I contend almost no one – due to horrible odds – wins the big money. The numbers just don’t come up enough. Therefore they invent big winners and place them in the media at critical (advertising) times.

Does anyone really win the big prize?

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?

No fakery required

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.

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

Lotto
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.
