AH-HAH! NJ is on a roll!  They must be stopped! lol Just kidding.  My Wa. has only had 2 MM jackpot wins in 6 years.  Hoping its our turn soon........for meeee!!!!!! When they say "single ticket" do they mean like a $1.00 purchase?  That gives hope to all that you don't have to drop lots of $$$$$$ to hit.  Hope it was a nice person who won.  We're starting from scratch again........hope the pot grows and grows again!

"Hope it was a nice person who won."

Aww, mean @#$%^&s need money, too. Embarassed

In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.
Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.

    Although this isn't the same thing, your post reminds me of a conversation I had a few days ago.  A neighbor won $330 playing pick 3 and you'd think she won $10M.  I'm happy for her, except her attitude about others, especially people with money, really stinks.  A local man (don't know him) won the Gas For Life prize which is equal to $52,000 before tax.   She said irratably, "He needs the money like I need a hole in the head."  I responded, "He bought a ticket like everyone else."  Suddenly there was a moment of silence & a dirty look.

      I heard the winning ticket was sold at a store in Newark. Nothing since then. I haven't been to Newark in years. The reason some States have more winners is simply there are more people playing more tickets. They are often sold in or near populated areas like Newark or Cleveland. Since most people play QP on big jackpots and most people playing big jackpots aren't System players, it's more likely the winner was a QP.

      Money is a relative thing.. it represents your relative share of the world's goods and services that you can demand. The Government can print out as much cash as it wants but it doesn't produce goods and services. That's the flaw of the Stimulus, that everyone got the same thing so the prices may go up to meet the increased overall demand. When one person wins $330 and not everyone else does, that person gains an advantage.

      I had been hoping the next morning (before I heard "Newark") to see a News van parked in front of Stop&Shop but no such sighting occurred.

      Instead of needing a hole in the head, we need a little hole up in ANWR and other places that will give everyone a "Gas For LIFE" benefit.
