    Rich or jail – it’s a pretty big gamble and the odds are not on your side. I think I’ll stick to buying tickets, lol.

    Not a chance. Been there, not going back again. 🙂

    It depends on who is rigging the lottery! If it’s the player, then yes, you will most likely get caught due to sophisticated computer software and auditing. However, if it’s the lottery company themselves, then this is a different story. The sophisticated software can be used to identify all submitted entries for a lotto and therefore only draw according to what hasn’t been submitted. In Australia for example, the draw is no longer completed live and it is also no longer uploaded to the company’s lotto website. In my opinion, this raises questions to the player! It’s like casino’s have been doing for years, it’s much easier for the house to favour themselves if they so desire!

      But the lottery company make a profit regardless of who wins Adrian – it’s a business. Their profit is guaranteed, so why would they do anything shady to put that profit at risk?

    Well, of COURSE the lottery is rigged … it’s all a carefully-orchestrated, well-organized conspiracy aimed at ME, personally … It must be true, because I never win! 😉

    I don’t think anyone is concerned with an individual player rigging the lottery. The suggestion is that the lottery people rig it so they don’t have to pay out large sums of money. They have a lot of time between the play cut off and the actual draw to manipulate the outcome.

    They already rig the lottery via doing as they please. What other company would be allowed to double their price and get away with it. And now we are getting another 10 added numbers come this October, which will make it a one in 45 million chance of winning compared to the current one in 14 million chance. Which I would not mind if the rollovers were not capped. But they are so you might as well just do the Thunderball for £1 giving you £3 back if you just hit the bonus ball out of 1-14.

    The lottery is not rigged. People just need to learn how to play smarter. I agree with LG. Why would the lottery company mess up something that is guaranteed for something not quite so with greater negative than positive consequences?

    Exactly. It’s not worth it.
    Just realize the odds you’re up against and use a good system.

    Most of what is found on the internet is anecdotal evidence at best. With such high odds there should be no need to rig a draw. But we will never know if the lottery is legit or not. Only the officials who oversee the lottery draws know for sure. However, I wouldn’t be surprise if it were to be found out that it was rigged… : )

  • Maurice

    One true winner has been robbed of his prize though, nobody think about it and that is the real tragedy.

  • Katherine

    Lottery rigged??!!
    Are these serious??!!
    I would rather win the lottery honestly then spend the 90% of my life behind bars. I might be broke, but NOT that broke.
