    I say GOOD FOR HIM !  Just goes to show again, that in the jackpot games, the odds are too high for anyone to do anything to reduce them. Buying one ticket for $1 is going to be no worse than buying 100 tickets for $100.00. That's why I only spend $3 a week on Powerball. And that's only because I try and pick out the red ball. You can spend hours and hours trying to come up with the 5 white balls, but in the end, you really are no better off than getting a quickpick.  And if you consider your time worth something in terms of dollar-value, then you are really into the negative-value area when spending all that time on trying to wheel and hit the jackpot games.  The only exception would be if you are just doing it because you think it's fun !

      I like it when young people win.



      Also, just because he is 22, doesn't mean he couldn't get struck down by lightning tomorrow.



      I would just like to see the money go to good use and go back into the economy so everyone wins.

          It's so great that someone my age won. Now it's my turn to beat powerball.

            That reminds me, in the UK, there was a girl won like a few million dollars. But here's the interesting part, she was only 16! She couldn't even buy a ticket here. A case of the right place, right time.
