i am happy and glad that someone won from washington state. i hope it helps them and there family. if i ever won the lottery i would at least wait 6 months to a year to claim my winnings, just to let everything calm down and so many people will not be so excited and curious to see who won. to come forward immediately is somewhat a foolish decision as many curious people are going to go crazy and try to hunt you down. i would also claim the winnings thru a trustfund. i would not go in person or use my name to claim the prize. America is a crazy country with jealous,desperate people. i think its best to keep calm,quiet,and take your money without trouble.

        How long have they been your Grandma and Grandpa?

          For about 4 or 5 hours!!  I'm 76 years old, my parents aren't even alive let alone grandparents!!

          But I adopted them just a few hours ago.  Did they win????  LOL

            It appears the Washington winner not only picked his/her/their own numbers but bought more than one ticket.  Since the other ticket won $150, it either matched 3+1 or 4+0 which lead me to think they had a particular set of numbers to play or might have used a system with a pool of numbers smaller than 56 which took several tickets to cover. It will be interesting to read how they picked their combinations if they chose to reveal it.

            ".... lead me to think they had a particular set of numbers to play or might have used a system....."

            At his interview he did say he had a particular set of numbers but he didn't elaborate other than to say they were some family birthdays.
