            OMG this guy is an idiot. Wins on Sat night/Sun morning and runs right away to let the whole world know that it was him on Monday morning. I get the impression he is not the brightest bulb in the box. I expect this to be another tragic lottery story. 

            Why on Earth would you not wait awhile, get all your affairs in order and try to remain hidden for as long as possible? 

            He couldn't resist his desire for a 15-minute fame.

              The prevailing equation that allowed Pedro to win, without which there would not have been a winning for Pedro, does not support your position.

              He is not what you say that he is, and he had, what no one else held, on the winning night.

                I am glad that Arizona where I currently hail from is considering passing the anonymous bill that allows a lotto jackpot winner and other big winners  to remain anonymous.

                    That's awesome, I would hate to go public if I won. You would have to beef up your home security, there are crazy people out there.

                      I would still be in shock. I'm in shock when I match the mega number and break even.

                      Me too!!!!! Lol :)

                          That neighborhood where he bought the ticket looks fairly ghetto... my experience while living in DC, people in these urban areas ain't very friendly and if they are, it is only because they want something from you.

                          Soon after I got stationed in DC, I remember getting a lot of blank stares and frowns from people if I gave them a friendly hello as I passed 'em by while walking home from post. After a while, I just gave up, people there seemed to prefer to keep to themselves.

                          I hope Pedro has heard of Jack Whittaker's failure and chooses not to go down a similar path. May God bless and protect him and his family.

                            what would you call that? having a lot of Dollars with no cents Green laugh

                            Of course, helpmewin, he won't actually have any of those "Dollars" until 6 weeks or so from when he submits the official Claim Form, with % sharing breakdowns, if any.

                            Cheers

                            Anyhow, congratulations to this now well known PB jackpot winner.  Quite a big gambler if he purchased a lottery ticket(s) each day at the same lottery retailer!

                              yeah really i thought they keep the address quite, wow everyone knows everyone SMALL WORLD!

                              This is why a 1st or 2nd big prize lottery game winner SHOULDN'T return to where they purchased their winning lottery ticket. Only check over a computer or a newspaper far from where ticket was purchased!

                              [By now, most of us LotteryPost.com members have ascertained that not only is the local and/or metro press waiting for 4+ hours in that winning lottery retailer's parking lot, but that press also has a "driver/tracker" who is also in the parking lot, prepared to IMMEDIATELY follow a "winner" for the rest of the day (eventually following them home, calling their press employer, and waiting at street curb until their employer's head journalist arrives to knock on the winner's door, while simultaneously sending several support journalists to knock on nearby neighbor's door's then interview).  Outcome is that a winner's picture is plastered all over the place several weeks BEFORE they received any lottery cash!]
