      Congratulations to the winner! Since he wanted to keep some privacy I wonder why he didn't take advantage of South Carolina Lottery letting winners remain anonymous.  OH well, right state, wrong city.LOL.

       

      GOD BLESS THEM, I LOVE READING THESE STORIES AND I'D REALLY LIKE TO SEE WHAT LIFE IS LIFE FOR HIM A YEAR FROM NOW.

        Congrats to Mr.Jackson on winning the big one,and no he didn't power up that's why he stated in his interview with the press that he spent a dollar to much,because he won with the first number on the ticket so really it only took a dollar to win,if it's for you it will come. $260 million for only a buck or two I'll take that anyday.Why spend the extra buck if you don't have to if you're lucky to get all six numbers right power up isn't going to make you any richer,this is where prayer comes into play along with a little luck.I don't mind hopping over state lines to play mega millions,no power play,no problem,no stress.Bed

          Okay,   I've read most of the comments, but know some asked if it was a quick pick and other curious questions...Here's the word from a friend of the family..... Mr. Jackson retired from the church and from education....Because Mr. Jackson believed in education and South Carolina Lottery claims to support education...Mr. Jackson bought a PB ticket for every drawing...Not to support the lottery...Not to win....To support education....Something he believed in....SO.....to the question, "Was it a quick pick?"....I'd say...."most likely"....

          The word is Mr. Jackson usually throws the ticket in the trash can once it's purchased...this time...why?...size of jackpot...who know...but it hadn't made the trash yet......And now, Mr. Jackson ended up with the ticket....

          But, "Was it a quick pick?"   Are quick picks the winners?.....No....not neccessarily...the 19 year old that won $35 million and whom according to my mechanic whose friends with the young man's neighbor....received a $17 million check seen by the neighbor....The numbers were the birthdays of his sisters and mother, and himself....
