Yea, You might be right, but I only play 6 dollars worth, without PP. I have birthday numbers numbers I also play. 2 lines of my birthday numbers, then 1 qp.

They had $262.5 million in sales on this last draw.......

      That was fast. I wonder if they already got a financial planner and laywer. If it was me who won I would have put together a legal team as well as take my time turning in the lottery ticket to get the media all worked up on who won. I would then turn in the ticket during some kind of trategy that all of thew news channels would be busy with.

      Hulk, some people are prepared in advance there was a lady that won the poweball in Iowa I believe in September Mary Lohse $202 she calimed her prize within a week as well.

      "Mary and Brian Lohse said they had done their homework in advance by meeting with financial planners and had some very specific plans for the future as they claimed their big prize"

          There was a news story on the Today show this morning on this couple, along with an interview of the mother in law and a family friend.

          All comments indicated this couldn't have happened to a more deserving couple. They have adopted children from foreign countries.

          Interestingly their chosen numbers were all QP's! Banana

          Hey Mcginnin, isn't it interesting that the winning ticket in MO was a quick pick?

          Just before the drawing there were many players on LP stating that QP's are no good and that self picks are the only way to win a jackpot.

          Hmmm....to all the QP haters:

          i told you so

              This guy went on Facebook and told everyone he won. How dumb can you get? Why on God's earth would you do something like that?

                Venom, He probably did it because he's very excited, he doesn't play the lottery much,  and he's not an LP expert. A spontaneous response but I understand where you're coming from, he'll pay for this mistake big time.

                  Puh-leezzzzzzze.

                   

                  All this rubbish about gathering a legal team and turning the ticket in at the ''right moment''. Possibly when the news is covering something traggic? haha.. NO. GOOD ADVICE THO! 

                  But if it was me who won I would have turned the ticket in immediately or at least no more than two weeks after i've won.  People are still talking about the mega millions last jackpot and a prize this big is going to be in the spotlight for awhile so with that said I'd claim and get it out the way now rather than later and I'd worry later about setting up everything because I'd be too scared I'd lose the ticket or it'd get stolen or ruined...lol

                   

                  I believe the majority of the people on this board talking about setting up legal teams would probably run 1st thing to headquarters and claim the next day. Easy to say and dream about what u'd do vs doing what you would do if you had the actual ticket.

                  It appears to me that Hulk311 has more of a fascination with the seemingly impressive language of "putting together a legal team" than he remotely understands the implications of getting involved with, and dealing with real Incredible Hulks, which many lawyers are, and/or  try to be.

                      I Agree!

                      So much for creating "BETTER ODDS" for yourself by picking your own numbers.  Random is random, by its very definition you can't predict it.

                      Of course, the whole idea of "BETTER ODDS" reveals a complete lack of understanding of the concepts of odds and probability.  Past performance does not indicate future results, and being good at guessing numbers is not the same thing as having "BETTER ODDS", it just means you're lucky.

                      States do not win the lottery.  PEOPLE win the lottery.
