spot on

sooner or later todd we will have billion jackpot

one of these monsters is gonna get pass 500/600m draw and go for the billion

how many years it take is anyone guest thro

but i think with MM higher odds coming late this year

we at lest have other 500/600 jackpot in 2014 at lest , if not a other this year.....

we had 2 in 2012, and 1 so far in 2013

cross selling change/ price changes to pb/and soon to be MM higher odds change

  have all created perfact growth for these monsters to be new normal jackpots

i remb looking at  that first 600m level MM jackpot and going wow , this is once in lifetime level.....

now with 3 going past us, , am like, this is the  new normal "high" jackpots Green laugh

i really do "hope" the winners mom/son spiting the jackpot enjoy the cash

i just fear they have no idea how bad beggers are...............

we had 2 in 2012, and 1 so far in 2013

All because of Power Ball and their $2. ticket price.................

      I know, you'll all think this is cruel. But be honest, you're thinking it too:  "84 years old!?  Are you kidding me?!"  I won't even live that long, and I have played this lottery since its inception without ever winning.  What a cruel joke.  Time to quit flushing money down the toilet!

        Either she wanted to avoid all the sharks lurking in her area or her son Scott lives in Jax. Glad she took her time as both her and her son are very fortunate.

        You must be feeling a sense of glee and euphoria knowing that she brought TWO attorneys with her?

          She declined the press conference, and yet her pic. is still online already,

          now people that only know her by sight also know her name.

          are you sure that picture is Gloria C Mackenzie the Powerball winner? There are over 10 people on facebook named Gloria Mackenzie.

            I can understand needing advice between cash or 30 year payments (not if I was 85), but what did the lawyers do?

            We really need to hit a jackpot so we can find out why it's necessary to have one two lawyers present to validate a ticket.

              No, how could I be ?

              But if it's not her real picture I hope the same thing happens here when I win,

              and every one in Jersey and elsewhere sees a picture of some other haymaker. LOL

               

              I'm not on facebook.

                Perhaps golf club lady will be happy to tell us WHY we need TWO attorneys to validate a large winner?

                  Not cruel, I'm sure she is happy for her children and grandchildren.

                    Love hearing it was a single quick pick that won.  That's usually how I buy mine - one at a time.  Even if I'm gonna get several tickets I almost always spread them out over a few days.

                      Absolutely.  It'll soften the blow of her passing.

                        The local news just confirmed that the son lives in Jax on the Westside. A reporter was doing a live report from in front of his house...

                            I hate to break your bubble but I read somewhere that she had 6 tix.
