i think 1 guy said there were 49 cause he put in a guy that he owed money.

    Thank you for your most kind remarks .........

    "Philly Thumbs Down " is just my pet peeve ........... if I were a negative person, I would not have survived 26 years without a painfree day ............

    $102,000,000 it is then !!!!!!!!!!!! Dance

    Looks like 34 of the winners agree w/ you, they live outside philly, some are from jersey,

    and get this one winner, one of the two that have a half share,  lives in delaware,

    where you can remain anouymous, but she can't because she won in pa.

      i like it when a group of people win, 172 would be too much for one person, if i have had the sole winning ticket i would be giving most of it away

      I Agree! and wish we had more people winning smaller jackpots. I would have loved to have won the approx. 3 million and yes it can be life changing. Suggested reading "The Millionaire Next Door".

      May You Prosper and be in Health!

          If it's for it, it's for you. They bought 120 tickets, they won. Others buy one ticket, they won. You try both, you still lose.  I didn't buy any MM tickets today because I bought some yesterday.  I usually don't do this, my mother does, but since we both were out together I picked up three QPs.

            I agree 100%

             

            Every winner's story is different. The latest means by which a pool or individual won doesn't dictate that's the way to win every time. It's like those pool advocates. If you support participating in lottery pools, it's your funeral, but it like every other strategy could never guarantee a win.

              Some folks are going to think if they buy 120 tickets they're going to win and that's not true one bit.  They would think buying at more than one store like other winners did is going help them and that's not true.  If all 6 of those numbers are going to match, they're going match no how you bought the tickets.
