Candido Oliveira bought a single Quick Pick ticket last week for Mega Millions, matching all five numbers for the $32 million jackpot.

A single Quick Pick Shocked ?

He must be one of the luckiest person in America. Most people won by buying at least 5 tickets or joining an office pool. He won by buying just one ticket.

Congratulation to the winner. One day, hopefully I could be that lucky Wink

He is a THRIFTY LOTTERY PLAYER.He knew that A LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT is very important to be a successful lottery player over the long run.He used the following strategy to win

1) PLAY MORE OFTEN FOR LESS LINES. LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT= BUY A SINGLE LINE. http://www.lotterypost.com/thread/234945

LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT= BUY A SINGLE LINE

    Where, oh where, did you get that?

    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

    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.

            He no longer has worry about paying bills again, if he does right with the money. Good for him. When we win we are NOT going on television! Illinois says one must do a one time press conference, but I'm sorry, that's ain't happening. Our lawyer will claim it. As much as I would to get that experience of being up there claiming millions, my safety and family's safety is much more important.

              Not sure you could get that on. Remember the female pharmacist that won the Mega Millions? She hired professional make up people and showed up for the press confenrence disguised, but she still showed up.

              I'm not sure that Illinois allows you to "send in a beard".

              This is from the Illinois lottery website FAQ page:

              Can I avoid having my name released if I am a winner?

              To assure other players that prizes are paid to winners, the Lottery makes public the name, home city and amount won. We will not, however, release the addresses or telephone numbers of winners. Multi-million dollar winners must participate in a one-time news conference, but we'll always respect your wishes of privacy as much as possible.

              Kind of contradicts itself, doesn't it?

              To assure other players that prizes are paid to winners, the Lottery makes public the name, home city and amount won.......but we'll always respect your wishes of privacy as much as possible.

                  Yes he took it from me.  ah now there's a face to the person that took my money.  i play $6 megaplied the drawing before and my balls were 22 9 & 33 and they came out with 44.  then they give Candido the 22 plus 3 of my white balls from that ticket.  yes it was in line with the 22.  someone hates my gut man. but i'm happy for him.  he's in the same boat as me. i'm so in need of a good turn

                    Congratulations to the winner! Good Story.

                    hopefully they talked about things first, before the girlfriend quits her job. Meaning not just a marriage proposal but a wedding at the justice of peace, then set a date for the real wedding how many months they need to plan their wedding, without spending a fortune on one day.

                    She clearly is not a goldigger since she's with him through the rough period of his being unemployed!

                      I just bought 5 dollars worth of QPs for this Wednesday's PB. It really doesn't matter, but I always buy more than one ticket when the JP is high.  It's a stupid habit, but in reality, you can buy 20 tickets and still do not win. You can go to ten different stores and still lose.

                            He said didn't even have to check the tickiet because he knew in his heart that he was the winner. I can feel the same way today, and I'm guessing those 6 numbers will not match.Green laugh
