I had a dream I played those numbers 02, 17, 20, 48, 51 and megaball 13...Anyone who want can try their luck using those numbers. I don't want to win by myself. Good luck to all

In another thread, someone said Richard Lustig who has won 7 Florida lottery jackpots suggested playing 7,20,32,45,46 with megaball 28 on yesterday's Morning Show.

            You'll feel bad if nobody wins and then realize you could have lost less with fewer tickets and had some extra money for the next drawing.

              Then again, you will feel bad too if one person wins and you think Dang! I could have bought more tickets and if I had, I may have won too!

                GREAT story TTech! Thank you for sharing that!

                I wonder who was filming it? It must have been a friend; I thought he told his girlfriend that he would be on tv and at first was thinking a  tv station camera was following him. But if that were the case, the girl putting the letters on the sign would have probably known.

                Then again, seems like the lady would have thought something was odd about him being filmed anyway.

                But it was great seeing this. I would like to see a follow up. Maybe he will show up on 'Lottery changed my life'

                    It was a great video. Timing was everything. The guy filming has several Missouri Lottery related videos uploaded. I think he was there interviewing the clerks when the winner walked up. Nothing like being in the right place at the right time. 

                     

                    Got my tickets, 8 for my luck number.

                      No problem.

                      The YouTube channel for the uploader say's it's "Missouri Lottery on YouTube" so it seems to be someone with the lottery there. The other guy there is an official with the lottery I believe. I like how you get to see the reactions from other people and the winner when learning he won, progressing from confusion to excitement and shock.

                      He went on the CBS Early Show after that but since then haven't heard anything from him. He talked about getting someone to help with financials so hopefully he did that and is doing fine with the winnings.

                        There will be at least a million other players thinking that regardless of tonight's drawing results.

                          Makes you wonder how many ways it would be split if that's what hits.

                          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                          Lep

                          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                              You know, you can post a You Tube video right in your post by clicking the "Insert Video" button on the toolbar (looks like a little green film strip on the button).  You paste the You Tube link (URL) into the File/URL space, and click OK - that's all!  It looks like a yellow square in your post, but when you post the message you get this:
