Looks like PB didn't go into NY until 2010 and MM does show a few NY's, but it's not "always" NY.

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.

    Can anyone tell me which state has won the most powerball/mega millions jackpot?  I'm just curious.

      This isn't Holly's FB page. It was created by a guy Cole Bartiromo who has a history of fraud. He has since removed his website link from her FAKE page, but he has posted a bunch of screenshots there of the pleas/requests people have sent, meant for Holly. I think this is very cruel, considering some of these people are in sincere need.

       

      From his own FB page -  "This is crazy interesting to see if this experiment I'm doing gets her page 5,000 friend requests within 24 hours. So far 100 friend requests, & 30 requests for $, to help with a movie script, a church, etc. It's redic!"

        Here is where the courts can work in her favor.

        Scenario A: THe court ordered the support. That would only happen if she summoned the father to court and showed proof of separate living conditions. A Court cant order a married couple to pay child support DUH!!!

        Scenario B: She took the child support money privately and never went thru the courts. This leaves open for taxes on this private funds received.How did they both file their taxes.....? That too will carry bearing on whether she be forced to share some winnings....

        Way too many facts not being shared in order to make legal summations....

        Secondly child support ISNT by law for the child. Its for the custodial parent. So the guy makes a good point. She has her cash now, so technically he need'nt provide for her under the guise of "child support". They are both adults and can make their own living. Neither owes the other anything. Case closed.

        May she be blessed with freedom from the past and Hope for her and the children in the future.

          I Love playing Mega Millions and Powerball, However i am tired of funding New York state. That state win every other enormous jackpot  it is not fair!!!Evil

          I AGREE!  I knew this would happen when they both started to introduce the high population states into MM and Powerball a few years ago.  It was all BS about there would be large jackpots more frequently and a $500 million dollar jackpot...Neither has happened and probably barring a great coincidence never will.   It was about adding players and more money to state coffers thats it!  If New York doesn't win a large jackpot it's California winning I get tired of it myself....But it will all be behind me one day when the big one is hit by ME!!  Jack-in-the-Box

            I thought I read somewhere she was living with here mother or mother was staying with her. Anyhow if they are real close I would give the ticket to her and that should keep it away from him

              yeah the UK  separated couple was  10 years and she left him for another man. she still got an out of court settlement for a few mill euro.

              i guess it will just have to be upto the lawyers, and she has to think how little will he settle for here and now, and not wait for  the judgement.  and offer that. hopeing he takes an out of court settle ment. 

              whats the saying whats good for the goose is good for the gander.

              if ex wives can be all grabby and sue for  half, then ex hubbies can too.  we all agree he sounds like  a jerk. but hey thats life sometimes jerks get a break

                Yeah. Thing is too many people want to use family court for revenge against men. They see this guy as a villain and want to "make him pay", and want the laws to bend to their emotions.

                When a similar story comes along in the future, but the father is the custodial parent, you'll see a totally different general sentiment about splitting the winnings.

                  I am not here to hate the state of NY, however how many jackpots have the state of New York won since the the beginning of Mega millions with the 2 straight powerball jackpot wins????? compared to the rest of the country???? It do not take a mathematician to do the math!!Hyper

                    Would you drive to another state that allows anonymity just to play the lotto with absolutely no guarantee you're going to win? Get real.

                    Worst case scenario, the court orders her to give half the money to her estranged husband. She'll still have around 40 or 30 million after taxes and lawyers fees. All she has to do next is say, "no" to any loser who begs her for money. Sure beats driving to work in freezing cold northern Idaho and then spending 8 mind numbing hours a day as a customer service rep at the bank.

                    You have a good point.  With those kinds of odds, there is no guarantee that you will win anything.  But there is no guarantee that you will win even if you play in the state you live in.   But I would rather fly to an anonymous state once a year and buy a lot of tickets than have millions of people run after me after a news conference.  Honestly, I would rather not win a lottery and work two jobs and live a normal life than win a jackpot and be used by greedy family members, long lost relatives, manipulative businessmen, and golddigging girlfriends/wives.  That's why most lottery winners lose it all in 5 years!!!  But you don't hear complaints from jackpot winners from Delaware, North Dakota, Kansas, Maryland, or Ohio.

                    Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings.  They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed.  And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.

                    If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!

                      I agree. I totally get the guys response and it may have been a knee jerk response to recite yet nonetheless it bears some truth...why shouldnt he feel relief in some ways...How is he a jerk if he was paying all along?? Sorry but we are missing the big picture here.....

                      ANyways, as someone suggested , giving the ticket to the mother or an entrusting relative would have probably been the wiser choice. Plus who in their right mind quits there job just days after winning??? You dont get the money immediately....Sorry but that was an irrational thing to do without the cash in hand.

                        everyone is different I guess. I'd probably just wear a t-shirt with the word, "NO" printed in large red letters 24/7. If people aren't going to like me for not giving them a free ride, I don't want to be friends with them anyway.
