Like always right place right time! I wished i had that type of luck! lol!

Reminds me of a winner story I read some months back.

The guy said, "I was in the line with people in front and the back of me buying lottery tickets. I just happened to be in the right place at the right time."

      I had 32 lines, mostly QP, a few self pics.  30 lines from GA and 2 lines from CA, won zip.  Love to see the LP winners tix.....

      I would like to see RichNYoung's ticket as well. He had mentioned on his previous post that last Tuesday's drawing would be his last if he blew his $100 and didn't win anything. He had just lost $1000 buying tickets on his birthday without even winning $100 to recoup some of his losses. 

      He said he hit 5 of 5... just wondering if he had missed his Megaplier by just 1 Unhappy

        I just speak the truth, and I have good reason to doubt he won. I have heard it before for years and no one ever showed any proof. If I won that much and I blabbed it all over the forums, and rubbed it in with some gansta slang, I would be posting a photo also as I did in the past when I won. Otherwise no one is going to believe you. No one intelligent anyway. I am just honest, and have no need to send superficial well wishes that I actually don't believe, and try and fit in with the other superficial crowd. Most don't actually care and they forget it once they log off. So you can stereotype all you want, I can also. But I just call it as I see it, and many others see it but are afraid to say it, hence all the pm's I get saying "you are right."

        But factual or not I can post whatever I want to just like everyone else. If you don't want to learn from it or don't like it don't read them. I think most agree though that unless you post proof it is kinda pointless to even say anything. And like I said mostly all new members have done the same thing before, and was just looking for attention and trying to rub it in. But they didn't win jack, nor did they ever prove it. That is all I am saying. I will congratulate them when I see a photo or them standing at the lottery office holding the check. What you call a doubting thomas I call being an intelligent, level-headed skeptic who does not believe everything he reads. I don't alienate new members, but it is usually them who post such things, not long-time members. I guess that is a coincidence? But there are some intelligent new members also as shown in this thread, so I am not discriminating against all new members.

        Seeing is Believing.  I agree with you 100%, when someone wins a jackpot I search the Internet for a picture or a video of the winning ticket.  I will never say that I won a second prize or the jackpot on Lottery Post without showing a picture or a video of the winning ticket. How about mentioning Lottery Post and your username when you claim your prize. I know Todd would appreciate it.

          no point in saying you won with out proof. how hard is it to take a pic of a ticket and upload it. Still dont know how wise it is to say you won a bunch of money online(if it turns out he won). back on topic im amazed only 3 people won the jackpot, thought it would at least be 6 diffrent tickets.

              i believe him, he been a member since 2009 an never posts, so why would he start posting now just to make up a lie.

                A non posting member yeah, probably only posts when the jackpot is close to record breaking. Whether anyone believes it or not it is still pointless to post without proof. Sure anyone could photoshop a fake ticket but only the most dedicated would go that far. Most will take his word for it because it was not the jackpot and no one really cares. But I can say after about 8 years of reading here that I heard that line before, and most from new members or ones who did not post much. If anyone actually won they did not say anything.

                But there are a lot more people in the world than there are on LP, so odds are that no one has ever won a major jackpot here yet. Unless I see photo or a large check at Lottery headquarters I don't believe them. $250,000 is a good enough amount that you would have one of those and some press. So let's see it if you want to really brag about it. He did not seem all that excited, and the post sounded fake. I would be more pissed than anything if I missed the record jackpot by one number, and I am not sure if I would even admit to it. Sure it is a decent amount but not even close to what the jackpot was. I am not saying he is a liar but I am not saying that I believe him without proof. I just know the odds, and the odds of someone winning on here and posting. It has not happened yet.

                Sounds more to me like he was trying to justify losing so much money.

                      But I do have some good news LP.....soooo after suffering from lottery fever I divulged all my lotto money into 15 MM QP's last night. Won nothing. Was kinda upset about it this morning and heard best way to cure the fever was to play a scratch off. So I did, my first one ever...a 3$ bing scratch off. Won 10$ off of it. Turned tht in for 3 more of the same ticket and 1 state lotto QP...won 5$ back. Turned that in for one more bingo scratch off and a PB QP....won 8 bucks off the next 3$ bingo scratch off. Turned tht in for 2 more 3$ scratch offs and another PB QP.....yea. Definitely cured my fever. Not really high hopes of winning PB tonight but I jus enjoy I paid for them thru scratch-offs. So far, thes scratch offs have paid back almost quadruple what I've earned frm playing powerball and MM altogether over the last 5 months.

                          Keeping up with the threads the last few days has been almost a part-time job.  Just about the time I would be caught up I would realize that there were most posts.  lol - There was a very different feel around here, and alot of the ol'timers (via join date) just were not posting, and I missed hearing their 'voices'.  So it is going to be good to have LP get back to what is sane for LP.  Stretch

                            What could possibly happen to someone who post a winning ticket online?

                            FaceBook not good, but an online forum? What could happenWhat?
