Stashed in: Gambling!, Big Data, Lottery

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

States reviewing frequent lottery wins by ticket sellers - Quad-Cities Online: Nation; Gambler's fallacy as people believe that if they shop at the same store as a previous winning ticket, their odds of winning increase.

It's probably the latter: People flock to places that have sold winning tickets.

It seems like cheaters would be discovered easily.
