some are good, its a boring shift. theymemorize the winning number an dlook at all the tickets that come in. Tehn they buy a lsing ticket and if they see a major win they run the loser for the guy to hear he lost.
Now A owner will know a guy who plays the same numner so he won't try this with him.
Bur AFter years watching lotto checking behavior they can spot who's more adapt o be fooled if they have a winner.
So If you playin a wack load of tickets yourself plus, have a 30 custumers you pry on evey day..then odds are over the years you hit a 10000 hit mybe once or twice
I was told this buy a guy who owned a few business one a MAcs . HE new when to get his friend to put in on those pull a tab jars. He'd put down twenty an 2/3 time I saw he won the hundred.

This was over a period of 30 years, and there was only two major wins that totalled the 1.2 millon. All the other wins they are talking about is those 3 dollar/10 wins people get all the time. He was constantly buying tickets... he bought them like packs of cigarettes.

A decade is 10 yrs.

A store owner?..doesn't surprise me in Ontario again!!

Cops etc..got no way of proving any wrong doing so the matter is dropped.

Trust me, this guy and his family are not "all innocent".

Scratch tickets..the scam that was reported recently where store owners/whoever could scratch just a little corner at the bottoem and see letter codes indicating a winner or not or how much..well, I knew about that yrs ago and it took these morons at the lotto's yrs to figure out store owners were ripping everyone off.

I say burn down this guys store..lol

That is alot of money, and one family won it, good for them and GOD bless their blessings even if sme of them may have been foreknowledge winnings. You have to spend to win is the old saying. 1.5 million dollars, that is a neat pile of money....$1,500,000.00.
We all won a lottery in January of 2008, according to scientists who peer into the sky, they have informed from a blog that I like to check every now and then...well, I think the SUN yea the thing up in the sky that gives us light is alive...this is what happened...a comet or something a planet maybe got caught in the gravity pull of the SUN and was going to crash into the SUN but as it was making final projectory to do so, the SUN blow up abit spewing hot winds out into space which pushed the projector of the comet that was to crash into the SUN away out into space, the scientists said if it had not projected by the solar flare up it would have caused the SUN to blow up and we would have been TOAST as the scientist said...so enjoy life steal, sell your body, penis, you have been spared death, so the SUN is indeed alive. I wouldn't lie to you we would have died this January, of 2008. My blessings go out to Wanda Fox and Dorothy Shawayahamish wherever they maybe
lovingly yours in the power of the SUN Barry Kitcheesic-Wynn, now we have NIBIRU to worry about and it is fast approaching exact day is December 21, 2012, I renamed my daughter NIBIRU because she was born on December 21, 1986
