Congrats to the winner. Big mistake going on the interview. Big mistake. Big. Mistake. Best of luck to him, cuz he's gonna need it.

 

1.  It helps to pray to win a jackpot  <-- Lord knows the '11:11 make a wish' hasn't panned out for me yet. Thud

 

2.  Quick Picks are the best choice to win a jackpot <-- 80% of my tickets are quick pick. winnings on about .8%.

 

3.  Almost every store in the country is owned by somebody named Patel <-- I'll have to look harder for Patel behind the counter. Usually it's Jose or Juanita manning the register around these parts. Actually, the place I've won a little here and there has Patel's wife, her sister, and her mother working there.

 

Anyone know whatever happened to Geraldine Williams? Is she a success story? I'd like to think so. Thumbs Up

        people have won twice, but he has no clue on what to do with the 9.2 he's already banked...he's a disabled vet but seriously watch the end of that video interview. he almost gets clipped by a speeding car crossing over to joes market...

          "Freeman said he plays a few dollars around town — mostly Quick Picks — and he has always prayed and dreamed that he would someday win a big jackpot.  His ticket that day was a Quick Pick."

           

          As many Lottery Post players do, I watch with the eye of an eagle for trends and patterns.

          And I am seeing the development  or distinct validation of three of them after studying recent news stories on jackpot winners.

           

          The following three things have been proven and validated:

          1.  It helps to pray to win a jackpot

          2.  Quick Picks are the best choice to win a jackpot

          3.  Almost every store in the country is owned by somebody named Patel

          Ridge.........

          Ya know, if I didn't know any better, I would swear you are trying to stir the pot!

          I see ya pushing the prayer thing, AND the QP thing.

          Where's yer little buddies when ya need 'em? LOL.

          CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

            No buckeye, ya got it all wrong.

            I like to think I have a soothing, calming effect on them.

            I'm just trying to be proactive so I can nip it in the bud when they see this article and go stark, raving mad and commence foaming at the mouth and all like that.

            It's kind of a homeopathic approach if you will.

            The poor souls are just too high strung, that's all.

            But I'm here for them.

              Well, rich celebrities and athletes have been known to play the lottery, as well as other winners continuing to play, so I don't see anything crazy about this.

               

              Honestly I would do the same, specifically once I started driving around the country visiting different states. If I won, I'd probably gift it to a family member or set it up where multiple friends/family members benefit from it.

                  Congratulations Mr. Freeman, you, are definitely a "Financially Free-man" now!  What an exciting phone call with your friend that must have been! 

                  Sad to learn that it took almost 7 years for a player to win the next net multi-million jackpot in Massachusetts though!!!

                  It's ever wonderful to hear of a person's unyielding faith/knowing/clear certainty causing HUGE financial manifestation.

                  Thinking of...

                    yes, by all means get out of fall river the decadent old mill town should be in your rear view mirror of your huyndai? you should consider a cadillac escalade instead or something that will last longer than that cheaply made vehicle...

                    Maybe he doesn't like ostentatious SUVs. Maybe he enjoys a simple life and not interested in keeping up with the Jonses.  Could be any one of many reasons. BTW, cheap and inexpensive are not the same.
