BananaCongrat! to the trio, they look very nice especially the thirty something guys. My question is why are you people injecting politics in this, the people saying these things could not be poor or ow,everything that sound one way may look totally different.GoofJester

Now Louise, you know you too old to be thinkin about them thirty-something guys.   No No

    carry the logic a bit further. they would know the ramifications of the purchaser who paid the 1.00 for the ticket possibly claiming that he didn't receive the pocket change from the others and wants it for himself. they actually created a pool when the 3 of them pulled up for gas. it would only make sense for them to throw in 1.00 each for 3 tickets so there could by no doubt about ownership. being smart investment guys they would know that.  postivie now they are claiming it for someone else. nothing wrong with it, but at least there will another drawing for shorter money but another drawing nonetheless.

      Nah, that ain't it.

      Hold on! Rdgrnr not so fast come to think about it, I thought they spend a few bucks or they all had winning tickets. A single ticket come on, their either doing as someone said earlier to get better taxes break on their win or something else is going down. They did say they would give some to charity so they can't be all bad or Republicans.ROFLGreen laugh

          I was not dreaming. Three guys won the $254.2 Millions Powerball Jackpot with 1 Quick Pick Ticket in Connecticut?

            Nah, you're conspiracy hunting, Louise.

            These are 3 buddies who made a deal to split if any one of them ever happened to win the big one. I've done it before myself (Usually when I'm drunk).

            Who in their right mind is gonna turn over 254 million dollars to some asset managers? And two from one company and one from another company?

            Nah.

            The only scenario I could see in a conspiratorial way is if it was a clerk who stole the ticket from someone else and gave it to them to cash. But they have probably already checked the tape to see who bought the ticket.

            I think it's all legit.

                      No where does it state that they only bought the one ticket.   A lot of people buy multiple single line tickets.  This way they can hide how much they actually spent when they "win".

                       

                      Good for them!!

                        For the life of me, I cannot understand why people like this believe that ALL or MOST people who work hard in the right professions and earn a better than average wage and become relatively wealthy are greedy???!!!  So what does that make people who either do not work hard or seek to work in professions that make it highly unlikely they will ever become wealthy unless they win either a huge lawsuit or lottery jackpot?  Lazy???!!!  People make an ass of themselves when they assume such generalities.   The point of playing the lottery is that everyone has a dream, and if the person comes from a position of relative wealth, usually I have seen those dreams manifest in the areas of donating to charity, investing in companies that are successful and productive and that provide jobs, or starting/expanding on a business venture that benefits their local community. The people who come from living paycheck to paycheck usually do a number of things but usually the dreams are more directed toward providing them, their family, and in some cases their friends a lifestyle that they only dreamed of before winning.  So don't begrudge anyone who happens to get lucky and win a huge lottery jackpot.  We live in America and everyone, no matter what your socioeconomic background, have the freedom to pursue whatever dream you have between those two ears, be they big or small!

                        Congrats wealth managers....now it is my turn!

                        Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                        The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                          Anyone who knows about these things, if they obviously had to reveal names and give press conference, why did they create a trust instead of just having lotto cut 3 checks?

                            This is not an accusation!  I believe something shady is going on with the big lotteries.  Reread the article and pay close attention to all involved.

                            Looks like you're not the only one thinking that way - Good Morning America on whether money managers are the "real winner?" Oogle

                              Everyone seems to believe the story exactly as written. Think again!

                              Three guys each contribute 33.3 cents to buy a lottery ticket? It took them this long to claim the ticket? Not likely!

                              They are most likely claiming the ticket for someone else that wants to remain annoymous. They are doing this for the secret winner in exchange for the real winner agreeing to invest a lot of the money in their firm. The 3 so called winners are exactly the type of people a winner may visit to help with the money. It took a couple of weeks to work out the contract.

                              Good luck.

                              I believe this is what is actually happening.  It's fairly brilliant.  It's like a double-blind trust.  The lawyer is the only one who speaks - on behalf of three asset managers.  So the real winner is two levels deep, and doesn't even need to show their face at all.  Which is also probably why they won't speak about the circumstances surrounding the purchase of the ticket.
