I Agree!

It turns out to me lottery fatigue can set in.  Then to praise us dependable gamers either one of the biggies have modified the percentages making it tougher than ever to win the Jackpot.  OTOH I like it when the mathematician sorts say you may have a greater likelihood of this and that than profitable the lottery.  Yet they continue to be silent when any individual beats the percentages and takes the cake.
