I thought so too, but got confirmation from different outlets that they were random picks.

Go to www.signonsandiego.com and watch the link with the video.  He says there that he spends two bucks at a time and fills out his tickets at the 7-11 shortly before the draw. Using his own numbers.  He said they all came together at one time!

    I was a little confused as well because I watched his press conference and he says every since he lived in San Diego he goes and pays $2 and he picks his own numbers. Todd has better connections then I do so I believe him.

      Yeah, that's the same video that is available on this news story at Lottery Post.

      Yes, he chooses the numbers, the news sources were wrong.

        My sources were wrong.  I watched the video on the Lottery Post story again, and he said he picked 'em.  Sorry for the confusion.

          Winning at that young an age make the prize twice as nice. 

           

          Not sure why he decided to have a press conference.  I wouldn't want that publicity.

            Definetly. Winning at a younger age is the best. Hopefully I win the lottery soon myself lol. Yeah I don't know why he chose the conference but I guess some people don't mind at all.

              One good reason is, I would be willing to bet a few girls might recognize him and could come up to him in the bar.  A huge negative would be, there are ALOT of desparate people these days looking for money.

                I'm thinking WOW when I hear he picked his own numbers.  Did anyone hear how he came up with his numbers?  His own system?  Important dates? Set numbers he's played for a year?  What LUCK!

                I haven't had any luck with qp's..I too buy just about $2 worth and my numbers ALWAYS seem to be like this:

                 

                A: 1, 28, 29, 30,45,-X

                B: 13, 23, 24, 41, 42-X

                 

                 

                I know any number combo can win..but I do seem to feel like a loser when I see these numbers.  So far, my tickets have been just like this.  That includes Wa. Lotto too.  Geez.

                 

                Anyway..Congrats to him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                Surrender You can run, but you can't hide mighty Jackpot...surrender to me at once!

                        "Moitz said he pounded on his roommate's door and had him verify the numbers matched those drawn.

                        Since then, Moitz said he's been texting and calling relatives to share the news."

                         

                         

                         

                        Not a good idea! He should have kept quiet. He will be inundated with pleas for 'help', from family and friends and people he doesn't know. He should have got a good lawyer and tried to remain anonymous. I wish him the best and I hope he invested the vast majority of it for the future. while $32 million before taxes is a lot of money, if it's not managed well it can dwindle away very quickly.

                          Winning at 24 will leave many more years of great adventures!!

                          Wow...I agree. I have more hope on Mega Millions now,  I am young myself and I will win at this age so that I can have many adventures and help my family and friends out. Congratulations for the win...I am next, but I have to wait for the jackpot to grow again...I have my numbers ready to be announced. I have been playing ever since I turned 18 years.Party

                            Disagree.  I'm happy for him, but winning a lot of money after you've worked all your life to provide for your family can't be any less rewarding.  Can it?
