7-11 sells a lot of winning tickets just because of their sheer volume of stores.

They sold one of the winning tickets, for the $658 million Mega Millions Jackpot back in March.

Maybe people should network, and start lottery pools with other 7-11 stores throughout the country.

Lets start pools of 711 people, who each invest $711, for 7 months and 11 days, at 711 stores.  Group Hug

      That's totally a good news for the people of California... How I wish I was there too at the 7-Eleven store to shake his hands.  Who could that be the second person who've won the other half of the $61 million?  Just a thought of who's the other half...

                  It was three 7-11 stores that the investment group from Australia used years ago when they tried to buy all the possible combinations for the Virgina lottery.  The history of 7-11 stores and lotteries go back a few years.

                    The 7-11s around here are poorly run and desperate for customers. There is always a clerk who hates working there and is pleased to make sure everyone knows just how much they hate their job.

                      Tonight's PB losers won't be able to blame the results on California so they'll have to blame another state.  I hope it's Ohio.

                        You will need to get in line behind AZ because I have a lock on the winning numbers....... 

                        Besides, tonight is an MM draw so you will need to wait til tomorrow to win the PB draw..........

                          Ronnie, I never heard of these stores. They are nice. We don't have any in my area of New Jersey.
