    As hard as its been to win lately, I wonder if it will roll 15+ times again until there is another winner.

    Bought 50 tickets & I didn't win jack lol what crappy luck.

          No Florida has had Powerball for awhile. Just check the Powerball website to see FL has had previous PB winners. New to MM, but Gov. Chris Christie and VA won that. On a Sid note, I think I will just not read any news articles about lottery odds next time it gets big. I hate that I got psyched out of playing my lucky numbers!  10-13-14-22-52 and 11 were numbers I play regularly until I read a stupid article that listed one of those numbers. So I changed them up. Oh well, we shall never know who won since winners can claim without a press conference in FL.

           Oh of course. I must have sleep typed that. Thank you OldSchoolPa.

           

           

              Hey, if those were really your lucky numbers, bummer on getting psyched out of them. Still, it is truly astonishing that just ONE ticket had such a combination.

              CONGRATULATIONS TO THE ONE TICKET HOLDER....

              ...but if it were me and i won on a Saturday...and had to work the next day...I'd go to work like nothing never happened.....and wait until Monday. That would give me time to get over my celebratory drunken stupor.....no....for real!

              SIGN THE TICKET AND PUT IT UP!

                      It might be an office pool.

                      U and another Poster who wrote about the "Trailer Community" made excellent points regarding the winners. It's possible that a "group" may have "pooled their funds" and purchased the 1 winning ticket.  I seriously doubt that Jack Wittaker is into the lottery anymore after all the trageties he has endured, especially as he has lost his family.  But you and  the other Poster might be right in your suggestions.

                      I am simply glad that no syndicate won the jackpot. They spend hundreds and hundreds$$$$$$$$$$  trying to beat the odds. I do hope it was someone or some group that really is in bad shape.

                          I totally agree. I would get more via installments than cash payout. Yet of course I have to read the "fine print".

                            Yep. I would not have just abruptly quit. I probably would have called in late maybe LOL...not cause of a drunken hangover, LOL...There is this thing called integrity. All depends tho', on the situation. There are some people who walk off jobs all the time...but I would carry on as natural...wait for a period of time and then give notice....and hey with that kind of money I could by the Publix LOL or....

                            SIGN THE TICKET AND SHUT UP!!!...and put my passport to use!!! LOL

                              congrats to the winner or winners! my sister lives in FLA, she didn't have any numbers to win, not even 5 numbers right. NC didn't even have 5 numbers correct winner at all. I spent 30.00 dollars and have no matching numbers not even a powerball number, some numbers I had on different lines. 20.00 dollars spent on quick picks and 10 dollars spent on my picks. O well, waiting on WEDNESDAY now. 40 million would be ok with me!
