No, it's always the people who don't live in South Carolina who don't win big!

Very happy for the person (s) who win lottery money, but am terribly disappointed in the way they give out the funds, cutting the whole pot in half... for a one time pay-out!!!!???? Why not give the person ALL of the money except maybe $10,000, and then tax it? What a rip-off.

I don't think so, but I've got dibs on being the first! I'll settle for second if someone has already beat me to it though.

That's a double negative. You actually meant people who live in SC don't win big. Which is true. But I only want one South Carolinian to win big -- ME!!!!

I agree with that. When you win something you win it all, not half of it.

I agree Bubba. That's why I refuse to play anymore. I'm not old enough OR rich enough to win. When the lottery finally starts letting people who really need the money win, then maybe I'll play.

I bet that they pay some elderly person some money just to say they won, and let them take their picture. The government is so crooked. That take everything we have anyway. I wish everyone would stop playing, and paying taxes. Then maybe the great USA would realize that communism doesnt belong here.
