Winners as in? Names? breakdown of how many won in each tier?

I personally find that going to that "states" Website is very informative. Lottory post has a Lottery results page by state that also carries a breakdown of winners/results/payout.  Check the Quick links sidebar.

Winners as in how many won in each tier and location.

Thx, I will the the LP site.

    Then stop playing if it makes you so miserable.  Everyone else who lost said they had fun playing.

    I think I stated that it does not disappoint me, and I did stop playing it for the most part. I have not bought any tickets for months, I just bought them to humor myself since the jackpot was so high. Only two tickets though because I am smart enough to know that most likely they will not win. Some are too delusional and think that every week they are going to win, and suffer upset after upset. The definition of insanity, doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result. I am content winning all my lower prizes with my systems, but the jackpot games are a joke and always have been. Especially the MM and PB.

      Nope its NC. We haven't had a big winner yet.  I think the lottery gods don't like us for some stranger reason. Second place , its doesn't compare to the overall jackpot!

          2nd place isn't too bad Y2.....At least your state provides you with that opportunity on the MM (unlike FL)......Every place gives some opportunities that others do not...Frank Griffin has a nice PB win(141 million) back in 2/2010 and Jeff Wilson PB win (88 million) in 6/2009...........hang in there, it could be your turn next !!!

              Mega ripoff strikes again! I stopped being disappointed many years ago as it got too predictable. Looks like one will stay anonymous and the other two are probably already rich and will appear 3 months from now once they remembered they bought a ticket. LOL Sleep Always lame and predictable. I am betting no one from LP won as usual. I have yet to see anyone jackpot winner from LP. I hope to be the first.

              As I understand it the Maryland winner can claim their winnings anonymously,same goes for the Kansas winner.If they are smart they will remain anonymous and let the Illinois winner get all of the media attention.

                    Yea, me too.  I guess closing out my 401 and buying tickets for last night's draw may not have been such a good idea, though it did seem like it at the time!   Bang Head

                      There were 5 $250,000 winners in Virginia (none near me).

                        Maybe this is my lucky day!  Going through the Mega Ticket pile from last night, low and behold, a Powerball ticket for tonight!  Not a quick pick either!  I tend to buy the mistakes that clerks make and forgot about this one!     I'm back in baby!!!    Banana

                          2nd place is not too bad! Maybe someone can do a lucky lottery dance for NC.  I am trying when a jackpot is that high , when is the best place and time to buy the tickets. Gas station , or pawn shop or what?
