I must say the entire US has seen this ,do you really think someone  who may have purchase the ticket wouldn't get their share they would really lawyer up and come after these trio.I still say there is more to this story ,however we may never know what it is.I am sure this saga will continue. Crazy

Maybe, just maybe when they went to get gas they found the ticket that someone lost. No one pools .33 in a lottery pool.

And what took them so long to collect the prize, If you are a money manager you should already know the tax rules/laws.......right, so what was there to work out before coming forward to collect the winnings.

Unless it is the lost and found ticket (gas station clerk don't remember any of them)........huuuuummmmm.

 

 I Agree! with you Louise....they are lying like a rug, and if it be so, they will forever be looking over their shouders for KARMA who will most certainly pay them each a few visits.

 

If they did infact win that honestly. 

I wish them the very best.

      Something is very fishy here, i never heard of a lottery pool or any group getting together and spending $1 dollar on a jackpot.What if Powerball riged the game and had these 3 rich stooges claim the money to put it back into their own pockets, this could have been a planned out scam! If the jackpot was like $20 million i dont think we will be seeing these money pros claiming it! There is a big rotten fish in the tank that knows what machine the winning ticket is coming out of,what neighborhood, and what time it would be sold!! These guys do not look happy like someone would after winning $254 million or $103+million after taxes. There was something wrong from the start with those guys claiming they lost the ticket before these money managers claimed the jackpot!Jester LaughJester LaughJester Laugh  Disapprove

        I do think there's something a little fishy here.  I just hope the person who bought the ticket gets the money when it's all said and done.

        People do, however, participate in small buy-in lottery pools.  I run three big pools but when the jackpots are high, me, my niece, and a couple of coworkers will put in .25 apiece to play a $1 ticket.  Those 3 people pools are a pain tho because of that extra penny.

          These guys are not the real winners whenever their are 3-4 people they usually purchase 10-40 tickets at a time.

          I'm not buying this story these guys did not comment much at the news conference, and the store owner is right

          he don't remember seeing this guy in his store because he was never their one ticket yeah right. The lottery office should investigate

          they should hold up the check until their is a investigation. These guys did not want to talk at the news conference they

          were scared they would say something wrong about that day.

          I agree that something fishy is going on.  Do I think they should be investigated?  No.  I think this is being done to protect the real winners identity.  More power to them!!

          Whether the real winner is a billionaire (before the win) or not, leave them alone.  Let them enjoy their win or enjoy donating it away.

            My final thoughts on this whole thing...

             

            Someone won, who wasn't me, oh well better luck next time. No Pity!

            Who cares who actually won, or what they do with the money, it's not my money, it's theirs to do however they wish.

            I'm just glad the "mystery" of the where the ticket was has been solved.  No more people claiming to have lost it.

            Hiring a lawyer or an asset manager is probably a smart move on their part, if that's what really happened.

            If not, who cares, it's not my money.  Everything that has gone on is perfectly legal.

            If they don't donate money to charity, that's too bad, it's their money, however usually donations are a tax write-off so it would be beneficial to whom ever.

             

            Also did I mention it's their money? LOL

             

            I still like the story of 3 people splitting one QP ticket.

              Their is always another jackpot to win so if 3 asset managers want to split a ticket and win more power to them.  I do not care if they won.  Once I check my tickets and see that I have not won.  I hope for a rollover so I can have another shot at it.  But their is always more jackpots to win you just have to wait your turn to get them.  Good luck!-weshar75

                The key to this whole thing is the $1.00 ticket.  Three wealthy guys pooled their money to buy a $1.00 ticket????  How believeable is that?  I dont care how much money any of them has.  The guy who spent the buck just aint gonna share 104 million dollars with his co-workers.  Nobody is going to convince me his attitude wouldn't be "It was my dollar, and I won it"!  And he'd be correct in his thinking!!!

                Along with that, consider the fact that most money handling professionals will tell you that workplace lottery pools are a bad idea.  Money Pro's know they're a bad idea unless a hardcopy document exists stipulating all the rules, signed by all partcipants in the pool, and that document is notarized.  Then evidence would exist that could be shown to a judge that would hold up in court.  But how many people who partcipate in a workplace lottery pool have  something like that in place?  IMHO, the vast majority of office lottery pools are run very casually and informally. These three guys are money pro's.  They sure as hell know better than to not have all the "T's" crossed and the "I's" dotted especially when it comes to very large sums of money!!!!!

                Suppose the office pool hits for millions.  But "Joe" a guy who always gets in the pool, was out sick the day the money to buy the tickets was collected, so Joe missed out on the big win.  Dont you think Joe is gonna get a lawyer and try to collect what he thinks is his "fair share", whether he's entitled to it or not?  If the pool doesnt have anything like I described above in place, then what do you think a judge can do for good old Joe?  Not much!

                Do you think these 3 guys actually went to the extent of having a written agreement in place so they could  pool one lousy dollar??  I dont.

                Winning a Jackpot - unlikely but POSSIBLE!

                  Several people have claimed the 3 asset managers are weathy. No where in the news stories were they identified as wealthy. They do not own the money their company manages. Just like a bank manager does not own all the money in the bank.

                  Good luck.

                    A $1 ticket won the jackpot, yes. And it sounds unreasonable that three guys would split one $1 ticket.

                    But how do we know he didn't buy three $1 tickets or fifteen $1 tickets or thirty $1 tickets?

                    They have no legal obligation to give us any details.

                    There's a member here who has a friend who says if he ever wins a jackpot he's gonna tell the press it was the first time he ever played, just to piss people off.

                    So trying to develop a theory based on the word of people who aren't under oath or obligation can be an exercise in futility.

                              These guys are brilliant. They claim they only bought one ticket,  and then get one of their friends to claim they're a front for somebody else. 24 hours after coming forward half of the people already think they aren't lottery winners. It's almost as good as being anonymous and as a bonus their business gets millions in free advertising.
