Amazing.  And the ticket with the other 3M$ was 'just sitting there'.  I bet there are alot of clerks who are kicking themselves now!  Congrats to the lucky blessed winners!

I've volunteered to kick myself on their behalf! Can you imagine the turmoil those clerks are going through?

 

Wow, if I wasn't so cheap?

 

It was only a dollar!

 

3 million dollars was staring me in the face.

 

Well the only thing left ot do is to pretend to be excited for the actual winner!

    This story is amazing, the winner made a smart move however i have a lottery method that gives me either 5 or 6 of the lottery numbers and i use a wheel off gail howard site if i wouldv'e used her 18number wheel on her site i could have won 5 number prize on ticket number 17.

      Sometimes pure dumb luck is the best kind of luck. 

      I always buy the mistake tickets, they usually win more than the ones you buy.

        I always buy those extra tickets that other people don't want as well.

          This can be a good strategy, as often a state's or retailer owner's rule is that employees can't purchase those "extra/mistake" lottery tickets (or can't purchase any of the retailer's lottery tickets).

                        Actually, I believe the ticket cost $6 as it had 3 lines with the Megaplier. Can you imagine the customers who were offered to purchase the "mistake" ticket and yet declined to do so...probably because of the $6 price Bash

                          "Apparently, the winning ticket was inadvertently printed twice. According to workers at the store, that ticket sat behind the counter a couple of hours before someone walked in and agreed to buy it."

                           

                          Another case of an exact duplicate ticket?  Let hope the slip was run through twice and not the the computer printing twice "inadvertantly."  Anyways, I always buy the mistake tickets my retailer has displayed for sale.

                          If that is the case, I bet that winner is probably thinking, "Dang it, I could have had $6 million vice just $3 million if I would have only ponied up an additional 6 bucks...which is why I too always buy the mistake ticket.  Given how lawsuits have been churning as of late, I wonder if the original purchaser of the ticket who declined the mistake ticket will try to sue the lottery to get the other winning ticket?  But that person would not have a case since playing the lottery is a lot like buying life or health insurance...you don't have a contract or possession until money is paid.  So for those that didn't get that...insurance application + money = valid contract; money + lottery ticket = valid bearers instrument.

                           

                          Anyway, I am looking for either a $53 million or $131 million payday this week!

                          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!

                            I did not buy the mistake tickets the clerk had made in regard to my transaction today.  There were too many of them.  lol 

                            I always visualize winning the second level prize, not sure why.
