Pat Battle reporting for NBC was outside the Liquor Store and the winner is a Passaic bodega worker who was working all day and didn't realize the winning ticket was purchased at his regular lotto / liquor shop. He actually took out his ticket and gave it to the clerk to run through the machine and a jackpot message was indicated! I'm surprised no one followed him home....

That may be true, but as we learned this morning these rumors are not always true.  That's why you may have noticed that I did NOT report the rumors early this morning about the ticket being purchased in Bordentown, like all the other news outlets were doing.  The rumors were totally false.

But who knows, this story may be true.  I just won't trust it until there's some kind of proof.

          Congrats to the winners, just don't end up broke. Unlike that guy and his son who won 2M on a scratch off and his son made him go broke and they both ended up in jail. They was on that TV show The Lottery Changed My Life. I think their last name was Ficks.

            Good ol Leroy... He woulda done a lot better (I believe) if he woulda cut ties w his son... It appeared to me he was on some drugs during the taping of show... Could b wrong...Guess the sons "investments" in cheap swords didn't pay off :-/

              So they throw a press conference just to say where the ticket was sold? Making things way bigger than they need to be.

                I propose states should have a four part press conference after a win. (On seperate days of course)
                1. Declare that your state sold the winning ticket
                2. Declare what retailer sold the ticket
                3. Whether it was a quick pick or self pick
                4. Who the winner is, unless they can claim anonymous

                          Yea, shame he didn't seek help and cut his ties with his son. Could of invested in a second rental property and rented it out or something. Instead he made his fool of a son his financial advisor lol.

                            Todd, when i heard bordentown on the news this morning, first thought was, out of state winner,

                            PA. turnpike, NJ. turnpike, US. 130, interstate 95/295 ppl. from all over the place in that area everyday,

                            it's like when a winner is sold at an airport.

                             

                            I bet Jersey can't wait for their 10.8 %
