      What  are you guys talking about?

      ThatScaryChick, she's a member on here from Idaho.

       

      Glad I only spent $5 on this drawing, though I did see there was a 5/5 winner in my town. At least it came from the store across from where I buy my tickets (on occasion) so it's not like I missed out on getting them as one of my QPs.

        Thanks for clearing that up ttech.  I think everyone knows of a " scary chick".

                    What?

                     

                    Please tell me how 1 store could be in 2 states??

                    If one store was near the border, like the city of Opportunity, one person from that city could have bought a winning ticket. Then, someone from Idaho, driving to work in Spokane could have stopped at the same store and also bought a winning ticket. Just an example.

                        In your scenario Washington would have sold two winning tickets.  We only know the states where the winning tickets were purchased (Idaho and Washington), not where the winners actually live.

                          I only got 2 numbers right. Mad The sales in NJ and NY alone were ridiculous.. I spent $10 total; $8 of my picks and $2 qp's. I was in line and 5 people in front of me were throwing at least $50 or higher in qp's!! But also let this be a lesson learned for the lottery commission. DO NOT combine these games (PB and MM) or get rid of one for another, etc. as the sales alone for this game were absolutely ridiculous. The lottery made an absolute killing off of this even with 2 jackpot winners.. Its the only jackpot I can remember recently that was rolling to new heights without a f'in drawing!!!

                          "the sales alone for this game were absolutely ridiculous"

                          Yep.......that's why its  called MegaMillions!

                          (I like your post btw).....

                          And I also noticed on the Powerball website that they have a tab for MM...I do not recall that being on the original site.

                          Seems like they are making an attempt to support cross-selling (because for a while MM and PB seemed to be in competition with each other)..........Could this be the set-up for these games to become one?

                          And one more thing.....I buy my tix in advance and was back east doing this MM madness....I did not check the website or watch the news but overheard that the jackpot was high (just did not know how much)....

                          It was fun to come on this site and "re-live" the excitement and anticipation that was reflected in many of the postings.

                          With that said, I hope all who are experiencing "buyers remorse"......will NOT stay under that too long....

                          You know what you can and can not afford.....the $$ are spent, now then let it go.

                          It was great to dream and think about the possibilities of winning this......but remember, the $ may be gone, but the possibility of winning remains.

                          It can happen.........and this jackpot will grow again....

                          Be Blessed and Happy New Year!!!

                          ( It's already off to a great, exciting start!)

                            After my numbers didn't come up I knew it wouldn't roll....After all Yolanda Vega from NY was there...and the Next Drawing was to be in NYC!   That usually means the jackpot run is OVER!    Oh well...I guess I will have to wait a little bit longer for my $500 Million!

                              According to Lotto Report sales were $229,421,186. 

                               

                              That seems low to me.
