      I'm with you Emory.

      Okay LPers, 

      Let's all move to Ohio,  get jobs as state  workers  in the same department and form a lottery pool.  It seems like our chances  of winning MM would improve ten thousand fold.

      hehehehahahhahehehehahah

          Well, I had my biggest win on this drawing -- $157. Woot :) It was very exciting seeing all those numbers match up...woulda been more exciting to win the jackpot, though ;)

          Not a winner yet. But I will be!

            Congrats! It not the big one, but that is a decent hit, especially on a jackpot game. How much did you spend?

              Thanks for bringing it to California Cali,

              Well at least some of it.  Mega Millions seem sto hate me.  I hate yet to get 1 number (seriously) on the rare occasions that i play a QP, so I will  stick with our Super Lotto Plus.

              Okay, let's make it official.  You  win the next Mega Millions and I'll win  SLP.

              Big Smile

                    I was very excited to see a group of people from Piqua win Mega Millions!Hyper I was born and raised there, so that made it even better! Big Smile  The only thing I was wondering was if I might know any of the 12; if any of them were from Piqua originally.  If anyone knows any of the group members' names, please reply to this.  If you want to reply at all, that's cool, too!Smile

                      Ohio is having a tough decade. I hope it goes to some deserving people who will spend it wisely.

                        Congratulations to the lucky winner(s).PartyIt's party time for you!

                        But now I have to start my dream all over again.Crying

                        I agree with you MaddMike51.  Congratulations to all of them. 

                         

                        I felt like I was the winner.  Well I am waiting until the jackpot gets high and I start playing again.  There is a reason for everything.  I do need the money for myself and family but I will wait for my turn next in line.

                            You have to look at the odds vs. the jackpot amount, in which case most States' regular Lotto can provide a life-changing win with a much better dollar-vs.-odds "return". But I play at least 1 even in a low drawing but save the $5 plays for a big jackpot.. the $1 you'd spend on the $12M save them all for the $50M if you like. My goal though is have one strong set of number rather than 5 weaker sets..

                            I have not been near Piqua since Year 2000, and passed the exit for it in 1997-98, also the first time I played Powerball out there. I know people in Columbus but it's not likely they were in the pool.

                            Since it was a group, it is not likely to be picked numbers but rather QP being that whoever picked those numbers may feel they deserve a bigger share, leading to disputes over the jackpot, the last thing you want to happen. There are rare cases where picked numbers can be used but I would assume QP here.

                            I remember a year ago... I put in a pool near here.. and the winning ticket was "in Morris County"... very very close!

                              Congrats! It not the big one, but that is a decent hit, especially on a jackpot game. How much did you spend?

                              It was a $5 ticket (all QP's). My husband and I only play when the jackpot gets above $40mil, so all told, we probably spent $50? on this jackpot over the past few weeks. I don't have many other vanity items that I throw money at (no Starbucks, no magazines, etc.), so I figure $10 a week when the jackpot gets high enough is worth it...after all, I might win some day ;)

                              We took the winnings and went out and bought my husband a new iPod (which obviously cost a bit more then $157, but it covered most of the price). Now he can stop using mine!

                              Not a winner yet. But I will be!
