I think it was Lawson??

He was the last person to win the PB JP, his ticket had 4 QPs and a single winning self pick line.....

He said "I just checked boxes" or something like that.

Here is the real Donald Lawson winning ticket with 3 self picks and a QP.He won a $337 Million Powerball jackpot with this ticket on August 15, 2012.

    I went out and bought "a Donald" today. Can anyone tell me if this is a "classic Donald" or a "new Donald"?

    What is the the difference between the real Donald ticket and Ronnie's ticket besides of the cost?

      No more homeless kittens for me...........the last one I took in ended up costing $478 at the vet....lol

      Consider the $478 that you spent on your kitten, one of the best ever uses of your $478.

      For me, I see it as money very well spent, for one that had absolutely no other way to get medical care.

        LO L  Maybe I'm just mad because Ohioians can't even win its own state game. I'm sorta new to this site but I find is hillarious that LP members get serious about these type of comments. He's probably an employee of Powerball and will set the terminals for 3 New Yorkers to win it only this Wednesday to piss me and everybody else off that NY pulls off another win.

         

        I swear if that happens, even if NY win this one, I will be done playing this game..lmao

        LP members get offended when someone says they believe the lottery is rigged. It's hilarious because it's the lottery, not a family member. Why get all up and arms? I come from Louisiana and Lord I swore that was one of the most unluckiest states in America. We now live in Illinois. Some years back half of a big jackpot was sold at a Gas Station not too far from where we live.  But we didn't really play the lottery then. I get sick of hearing California and New York, too. I don't spend more than 5 dollars on MM and PB. PB is now 2 dollars so that would be 10 dollars, but since it went up to two dollars, I no longer go over 4 dollars.  Buying 100 QPs is not going to help you at all. Like everyone else I can only hope I hit on Wednesday. Playing this game may finally pay off for me.

          Wow, super WOW!  this is really a huge amount and I can't believe that it is that so big...I hope that this will be won by somebody who really deserve it and that person will share somehow the blessings to less fortunate people...Goodluck to all of us.

            I am definately getting in on this one. I work at a retail store and we got slammed on Saturday. I would think 35% - 75% EXTRA people would play for this big one.

             

            If I win I'd surely give every one of my friends a million bucks!

              Maybe it's hilarious that you would think a state is unlucky or that a state wins a jackpot.

                  Hey if I look at usamega.com 's powerball analysis. It looks to me like the state of New Jersey wins; $30 mill infact, if the jackpot goes there.

                  2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

                  keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

                      After playing birthdays 03-04-10-27-28 for about 6 years I finally quit playing them. I wonder if I should go back to throwing it on one of the lines considering its only $2. per draw......What?

                          Thanks for posting Thrifty, I somehow had the impression that Donald played 4 QPs and one self pick.

                          Donald played 4 self picks and ONE QP which should serve as a crushing blow to the beliefs of QP players.

                            You can budget your lottery money better by spending $5, $10 relative to any amount under $5.

                              Its seems clear that Donald believed in himself MORE than a QP and used the QP sparingly.....
