You never see people who really need it win because if they do they get someone else to cash it in.Better to give half to them than to social services.If you collected anything from SS in the last 10 years they move right in and take half so if you win a million a third goes for taxes leaving about $666,666.66 the county then takes half of the original amount so $500,000.00 leaving you $166,666.66 Now thats a good deal......for the county especially if you were only on for 3 months while unemployed.Who really won in that case???

if your on SS or disability and can't afford to (so-call)pay your bills, not shouldn't have any money for gambling.
if you get caught gambling with the state's money (mine, the taxpayer), i would take away ALL your winnings. those people are nothing but tax cheats and leeches on society.

on come-on fanthom, you no better...
no one gets ahead gambling.
once or twice you might get lucky, but in the long run, you lose.

if you bet 5 bucks a week on lotto, for the hell of it, OK.
but, if your one of those people who bet your paycheck, or should i say your welfare money, on it, then it's a problem.
and if your betting on the lottery with the states money,(mine the taxpayer), and you win, YES the state should be able to get the money back from you.

Anyone who is on welfare or SSD or ows any money to the state, the state gets there cut first.
