I think it's hilarious that some individual people were spending thousands of dollars on lottery tickets and spending hours filling out numbers, and the person in Maryland won on a $1 quick pick from a lottery vending machine. That should teach people a lesson.

      It probably was the case, and I actually predicted that as it has happened so many times before. But no one can prove that the person did not buy 100 QP's previously or after, or 100 individual QP's etc. A lot also buy stacks of 5 rows for $5.00 and only tell you about the one that won. But the point is that it is certainly possible to win with one QP.

        A good lesson for us all. There will always be people that assume that just throwing a lot of money at these games will produce big winners.

            With all the tickets I bought I didn't even get two bucks. No Pity!  I did however get the number 38 several times on tickets bought at different places at different times.

            Time to take a break I think... I find it funny that I've won more on one mistaken Powerball over a month ago than I have ever playing Mega Millions. LOL

            You can't predict random.

                Don't feel bad, prior to last night's drawing I had never won more than $7. I am usually lucky just to hit 1 number.

                    Green laughThat's a great idea max! I keep all my losing tic's for tax write offs, now your giving me some ideas for alternative uses for these hundreds of tic's.

                    The running joke with me is "too bad they aren't softer, I'd use them as toilet paper."  Banana

                      Hmm....how about soaking them in fabric softener first. By the following morning, should be as soft as your Charmin T/P.  Naughty

                      What a fitting tribute to all those crappy losing tickets!   Idea

                              Was it a major city like Chicago? No, it was town where the doctor, bank teller, teacher, police officer, dentist and baker are all the same person.  We won't see that number ever again and PB won't ever make it to that amount.

                              good combination,

                              i don't want my baker being my dentist,puting extra suger in them goodies to decay my teeth,

                              don't want my police being my teacher,giving me bad test marks and speeding tickets at the same time,

                              don't want my doctor being a bank teller, handling filthy money and knowing my balance. LOL
