      The news story was updated with additional info on the winning ticket and the store where it was purchased.

      It was a quick pick.

        I had a feeling someone from New York Would win this Jackpot.Unfortunately it wasn't me as I only matched numbers 52 and 54.

              A Quick Pick won the 319 million then.

              Thanks Todd.

              And I ain't sayin' nothin' to nobody about nothin'.

              Call me Mr Switzerland, I'm neutral on any related issues.

              Far be it from me to bring up the claimed stupidity of playing quick picks.

              And I would never say: "I wonder if he wishes he had played his own intelligent picks instead?"

              Uh-uh, no way. I'm not getting involved in any of the back and forth on that. So don't anybody try to drag me into it.

              I'm not getting involved.

                Congratulations to the winner, however i live in the south and we don't have a chance in winning the mega millions. After viewing their winning gallery they have had 18 jackpot winners in NY and MI from 2005 up until now. I live in NC and as you can see their has only been one winner here so I'm starting to feel like the lottery is rigg.

                      as a fellow new yorken and one to believe in conspiracy theories, i can tell you that i honesty DO NOT BELIEVE that the lottery is rigged in any shape or form - i do, however, contend that because new yorkers are more than likely to be wealthier than the rest of the country [1 bedroom apts. start in the $1million mark] they are apt to play HUNDREDS of dollars on a single game - in my office alone, one gent spent $650, another $300, another $809 and a group put in a cool $2,350 .. so, when individuals are spending at LEAST $100 [i played $200] each drawing, i do believe the machine and stats and random calculators would favor and spill out for that area .. or at least that's what i tell myself  ... anyway, i play ONLY when usamega alerts me that it's over $100million .. and mama plays big .. think of it as an investment plan .. one day, it'll be your turn to collect, right now, we're feeding someone else's troughs

                      when i win - solo, my lawyer will be instructed to say "a group of 52 retired navy seals have won" -- you know, to get the haters off my butt .. Sulk Off

                            You said you do not believe the lottery is rigged and then you said it favored that area due to all the big spenders and amount of tickets being sold.  Uhm, that would be rigged.  Wink  Just saying.........

                              You know something is up when you know what state won before reading what state won. The game is fishy.Smash
