indoor827....don't know what you are referring to as far as waking me up!  FYI I am not a lottery offical.  I have no affliation with the lottery other then a regular (four times weekly; twice each for Mega Millions and Super Lotto Plus) contributor to their coffers.  Not sure where the comment "the lottery was cheating" plays into all of this, care to explain?

Also as far as your #01 comment "he faithfully played the numbers", just to be sure all the facts are on the table, it was a quick pick that won.

Ca lottery  guy  I  went  over  your  comments  and it  is  posted below  ....if  you  don't  sound  like  a  lottery offical  .....you  sure  sound  like  you  had  inside  information  ;ARE  YOU  SURE  YOUR  NOT  DEEP THROUT.........

eddessaknight....it wasn't the CA Lottery that gave out the information on where the Mr. Salek lives.  This information most likely came from the local newspaper, the San Diego Union Tribune.  The lottery in it's press release gave the winner's name and said he was a retiree from the San Diego area. In California the winners name is released, a trust will not keep the winner unknown.

Also of note in the press release was that Salek bought 5 quick picks.  He doesn't like to get the picks on one ticket so he made sure he got 5 tickets each with a single line.  The numbers were 3, 5, 12, 20, 24 and 6, all below the birthday/anniversary number 31.   Interesting that  the winner was from a quick pick!!!

    irondoor827....no I am not in any way, shape or form affliated with the lottery.  Would a lottery official be posting on a Saturday morning?  I doubt it.

    As far as having inside information, none needed.  All one had to do was to read the lottery's press release, found on their web site, and compare it to the article posted by Todd from the Union-Tribune.  Hardly inside stuff, just simple reading skills.

      ca lottery  guy  ...when  you  commented  and  informed  the  board  that  -{" the  Ca.  lottery  never  Gave  out  that  information  and  that  it  most  likely  came  from  a  newspapper  in  that  region" } it  sounded  as  if  you  had  inside  information  unknown  to  the  public:

      02.  when  I said  he  faithfuly  played  the  lottery  I  was  detailing  the  comments  he  made in  the  report:

      Salek told officials at the California Lottery that he followed his usual routine yesterday morning. He got up, made coffee and then checked his SuperLotto Plus tickets from the night beforee 

      and  in re:  to  your  question  about  faithfully  played the  numbers  ...'just  to  be  sure  You  have  the  facts  on  the  table  " 

      playing  quick  picks  is  playing  the  lottery"

      money  spent  is  money  spent  .....and  your  darn  straight  I  said  the  lottery  cheats >............and  thats  what  I  BELIEVE @  do..... 

      irondoor827...here are my comments:

      Regarding your first thought that it sounded like I had information unknown to the public, see my previous post.

      As far as your comment about  playing "quick picks is playing the lottery", we are in full agreement.  Your intial statement said "he faithfuly played the numbers".  Playing numbers implies playing set of pre-determined numbers, not a quick pick.

      Sorry to hear you believe the lottery cheats.  I do not hold that same opinion.  If I thought the lottery did cheat, I would not play.
