Congrats to the winners.

Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

For a lead role in a cage?

      I think they should have told the truth. Just tell us you represent the winner. Big deal.

      Many have formed trusts - we understand that's to protect the identity of the winners. They succeeded in bringing more scrutiny to the win and raising questions about their integrity.

          Welp, that would answer my question as to why they formed a trust but still showed for the press conference. Can't blame the winner at all for the ruse.

              Otherwise known as "sending in a beard."

              Looks like these guys and the winner formed their own Jackpot Winner Protectin Program.

              I say good for them.

              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.

                From the beginning I thought this was a fishy story about the winners, etc.. I found it odd that 3 people would buy just one ticket. Usually people buy a few tickets. With a bit of humor, their total investment would have been 33 1/3 cents apiece. I wonder how they made that 1 penny into thirds?   Dance

                  I think it's smart to keep your identity private.  It's also smart to create an entity to manage the money.

                   

                  I don't see a story here - it looks like the lottery officials and the journalist took the low road.

                    I liked the story when it was about 3 people paying 33.333 cents a piece to split a QP ticket instead.

                      Who gives a SH*T about who won or cashed in this fu*king ticket!!!!!

                      Fact: The DA*N ticket has finally been cashed in!!

                      Reality: Move on the the next drawing and move on with your lives.

                      I am so tired of the media making a big hoopla about this fricking ticket!!

                      Be honest, Do you REALLY care about who won?

                      I'm just thrilled that the ticket has been cashed and the jackpot won't be "rolled back into the system".

                      GOOD GRAVY, give it a rest.

                      If anything, start fraudulent claims charges against the knuckleheads that "claimed" to have lost the winning ticket. Turkey

                      Is there so little going on in this pathetic world that the media have to run stories like this?

                      After all, as stated in previous posts, thousands of people have used a hired mouth piece or dummy front to cash in jackpot tickets.

                      Sometimes the American media makes me wonder about how brain damaged they really are.Chair

                      Yeh, who cares but it did prove a point that there something wrong with this story, it wasn't adding up!No Nod Good Enough!No No I will do the same when my ticket come in , but i will give to worthy causes.Blue Angel

                        the best thing about this is that rdgrnnr was wrong in his assessment yesterday. the know it all from the appalachians actually believed these frauds.

                            He made the wrong assessment because he automatically took the opposite view of mine. I first announced the 3 investment advisers were probably acting as a front and rdgrnr disagreed immediately never wanting to appear to agree with me.
