    The Cumberland Farms in Washington Crossing Pa received $400,000.00 for selling the winning ticket for a $212 million dollar Powerball Jackpot in May 2004. I knew I wasn't dreaming. Check the Powerball website-Winner's Stories to verify my statements. Why is Dahl's claiming they are only getting ten grand? It was a smaller Jackpot but 10 grand vs. 400 thousand bucks? If anyone has any verified info please let me know. Good Luck!

    I also thought stores got a lot more for selling the winning ticket..... like 100  grand.  maybe they changed the rules.

      When the MegaMillions had a jackpot of over $300M a few years back there were two winners, one in Illinois and one in Michigan, the retailer in Illinois got almost $100K and the retailer in Michigan got $2K because the amount that retailer gets for selling the winning ticket is set by each state and it's not the same even if the winners get the same amounts.

       * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

        With the multi-states-Mega/Powerball each individual State sets it's own amount to reward the Retailer that sells the Grand Prize winning ticket. It gets confusing, but that is the case.  Demonter

          AFAIK the bonus in NY is $25,000.

            "Kurt Harris, manager of the Dahl's Food Mart at 1819 Beaver Ave. where the ticket was sold, said the man, "one of our good customers" who lives nearby, came in shortly after noon."

            Winning a prize that entitle the store to receive $10,000 would make anyone "one of their good customers"

            Played his own numbers, no need to leave a tip, at the store, they already got one....

             

            Where does it say he played his own numbers?

            read the quote above....then go to related stories and click on that.

            HAPPY THURSDAY.....12/22/05....(3DAYS TO CHRISTMAS)

            HI  "FJA".......I always choose my own number series, and I stick w/it.....sometimes I add to them or mix them around, but I never choose the "quickies".....in Maryland, they're unreliable.

            See Ya!

              Great, another person who did not know they won, and did not bother to check their ticket until days later. More proof that having little or no faith reaps high rewards...

                  How did Neubauer go about determining that he picked his own numbers? What did he do? Look at the winning numbers and say "these don't look like quick pics to me."

                  With the lottery I get all the exercise I need.

                                    In futility.

                      if the can figure out if there is a winner, with in a few minutes after the draw, and they can figure out which store sold it a few minutes after that, they can figure out if it was a quick pic or a filled out card that won.....
