I went to get a MM ticket for tomorrow night and the clerk accidently gave me a PB ticket instead. I decided to keep it, since you always hear about people winning on tickets that were printed by accident.

ya, i would keep it too,but sometimes i wonder if clerks do this on purpose to sell more tickets.

use bet slips and the can't do it.

      If I win I'm thinking of signing everybody up for the "Jelly of the Month Club".

      I'm just thinking about it, nothing definite, so don't get all excited yet

        I would love for this to be my family! My stepdad can retire,  my parents can buy their dream home, I can buy my dream apartment! I can get all the other animals I have always wanted. Buy all the stuff I have always wanted. I would cry tears of joy. The first thing we would do after is contact some lawayers, go look at some apartments and start packing. I think it's dangerous to stay in your old place after you have won, even if you don't show your face on television, which we will not do.  We will start packing right after we have won.  We will call my brother after he have moved, because he's very loud. The people in our neigborhood know us and they know we play. We don't want them to know we won and my brother would probably blow our cover. We have a lot of stuff and It's going to take a little while to pack, but we will pack everyday until night fall. Most of the stuff is value to use, so we're taking nearly all of it.  PartyLet be us. Give to Illinois for a change! So far only one person has won here since the PB made to this state and it was a split jackpot. Come here!

              The drawing is tonight. It's going to be real lame if it's New York again, but I bet it might be New York again. If only it would make a stop in my home tonight.Hyper

                Lottery terminal communications were down in the Houston area between 5 and 6 today. They may still be down. Good thing I got my PB tickets this morning. Tried to cash my $100 scratcher (that I bought with winnings from a $100 scratcher Wink ) at the grocery store, but they could not scan it. 

                 

                Good luck everyone, especially those of us here in Texas. May the PB hit tonight in Texas, or roll baby roll!

                      Well, someone or more than one in Minnesota is 220 million dollars richer. Too bad I live in Illinois. Sometimes I just want to quick the lottery all together. Better luck next time.Sad Cheers

                            Looking through my address book for all my Minnesota relatives .............................................bummer, found none!  I know they are out there somewhere -- and they probably have the ticket.  Do you think they will call me?

                              Every time I excited that it was won in the midwest, the next jackpot is won nowhere near us!LOL

                               

                              Well, at least my family still has that 7 hundred, 77 dollar winning scratch off ticket. You cannot quit your job, but it's still great to win anything.
