Sometimes life - and the lottery - doesn't always go to plan. This viewer video of the Pennsylvania Lottery live tv draw in January 2015 was a disaster from start to finish.
One comment noted: "I watched this on WPVI in Philly. I was shocked. I don't recall any problems involving 2 or more machines in all my years watching the PA Lottery TV drawings."
Casinos are risky in more ways than you realise, and are a worse deal than the lottery for most players. This video shows how the casinos suck people in to keep them playing. That casinos don't have clocks is one well-known fact, but also consider these fascinating secrets revealed here before you play. We recommend sticking with playing the lottery - it's a lot safer.
This list of goodies for the super-rich lottery winner is unique, and the lift is an eye-opener. And who wouldn't want the 3-screen reclining computer chair?

LOOK BACK: In 2007 Cynthia Stafford was the winner of a $112 million jackpot from California's Mega Millions Lottery. In this video she speaks on how she got that win using the law of attraction, and reveals some background about her past. When I read that she filed for bankruptcy in January 2016 it was a shock. Apparently she gave too much money away to good causes, and ended up needing help herself. A sad end for a truly inspirational woman.
China's affluent consumers know what they want - it's just that some can't pronounce the western names of the hugely expensive brands they're buying.
