Thank you, Todd. 

Unfortunately I didn't win.  Now I know what to do if I win Powerball,  I bought tickets through Primeticket Service.

Me too!

    I visited Leprechaun News this afternoon, because it's only a slight detour on the way to Bowling.

    First off... IF the ticket was a quick--pick, realize the white-noise generator will race though billions of combinations in a few seconds' time. So "at 3PM" is not exact enough. Even one more person on the sidewalk slightly slowing down the potential winner will let the RNG drift to other (nonwinning) combinations.

    Anyway, I went to the Leprechaun and there was a Fox News van parked there and a lone reporter with a camera aimed at the storefront. A few people wandered in and out. I went in to play some tickets and somene was having trouble with the copier, but just that person and Mr. Patel were the only others there. No "rush" of people at that particular time. Other than the Fox News van and the handwritten window signs you would not know anything unusual was going on. It was much like when I visited the Super Serve except that Mr. Patel was more polite to me although he didn't seem too excited.

    I was hoping someone in Bowling was the winner, but those who actually showed up didn't even talk about it.

    Anyway I did match 3 of 5 on the Cash 5 and 3 of 5 on a Mega ticket using my algo's, not a quick pick.

      What does the store owner in New Jersey get for this?

      Hello, I am the son of the owner of Leprechaun News II, found this site while searching for stories online about Mega millions. We are more than happy to recieve the 10,000 dollar bonus, however knowing if the store was located in another state liek Ill,  it would be 1% of the jackpot. But its all Cool, if anyone has any questions feel free to ask. BTW it might take me a while to respond, because I am  a busy college student. Good luck

        Jatinkumar,

        Congratulations to you and your parents!  You must all be very happy, if not with the bonus, then at least with all the attention your parents' store is getting.  Must be an exciting time for you, enjoy it while it lasts!

          Thanx, we are very happy with the attention and the bonus no matter the amount. Life kind of just goes on. The latest update is that the pub across the railroad might have the winning tickets. Thats the only rumor going around town. -jatin

            Cool, the owner's son joined Lottery Post!

            One of the Pick-3 I played at Leprechaun as a box came out STRAIGHT on today's midday! HINT: Any #s I ever give you as a prediction PLAY THEM FOR 2 DRAWINGS!

            I'm planning to play there more often i.e. en route to Bowling (why not) even though the Bowling Alley has Lottery. At least it's close to me this time, not way over there in Ohio.

              Since the ticket was bought near East Rutherford, maybe they could buy into the New York Giants. Wait a minute, I mean the New JERSEY Giants! LOL
