What really hurts is when you make out a list of 10 combinations or so to play and then decide to add a bunch more just because the jackpot is so big and the only ticket that wins anything is on the original list of 10.  I have played 50-100 lines at times, but I have never won anything beyond the thirteenth lines, so I have decided to limit my picks to 20 lines until I figure out why my first picks are my best picks.  That might not happen if I bought QP's.

    "It happens once in a lifetime," Shalabi said. "It's not going to help to start buying tickets now."

    I beg to differ. Multiple lottery wins can and do happen. It certainly could happen again in their lifetime; even for someone who still works at that dealership. The only way is to buy a ticket.

     

    ... the lottery never fails to surprise!

        It's all about  the right time and place. Those four salesmen where destined to become winners.

      I believe  "IT'S JUST NOT THERE TIME" whatever the circumstances of the other salesmen not being able to be in on the pool for that drawing....

          Look at it this way. If they didnt ask those two salesman who turned it down to play they may have not generated those numbers that hit the jackpot. They might of bought them 5 minutes earlier and not have the same outcome. Who knows?

          They should thank those two guys for turning it down. I personally would give each of them $10,000 but thats just me.

              Yes. They could all throw in $2500 a piece which is pretty much chump change for them now.

                    That is nice and good hearted and it nice to see some players think that way, sorry to say that I'm not one of them.  The other day after chasing the Ohio lottery for five drawings at $20 a draw I matched 4of6 for $100 and when I cashed my ticket, the clerk told me it was not unusual for winners of a $100 to give $20 to the clerk for cashing their ticket.  I laughed and told her that I didn't do that, I hope she was joking.

                      That clerk was full of it. $100 is nothing. Enough for you to buy a bag of groceries. 1.6 million is a different story.

                        That's my point, a nice and good hearted friend would have covered the additional $30 he needed to get into the pool in the first place, after all $30 wasn't much for a $250 pool.  Does winning $1.6M before taxes ever turn a person into a more good hearted and giving person?  It would take a lot more than that for me to start handing out $10K to my co-workers or anyone else who wanted  it.
