True but the jackpots aren't yet big enough to create one.

We all forgot about the PowerBall winner of $338M from NJ who everyone thought should pay all his neighbors rent and we'll forget about Gloria too, but first we need a new story.

With PB at $70M, I doubt if anyone cares if there was a winner, how they became a winner or if they're going to share their winnings.  It may take a couple more weeks for that new story to pop up, but it will.

what you think you think Gloria is gonna pay anyone rentDance

      we need some new stories Dance

      Yea, I'm waiting for one In particular,

      I heard that a 30mils. MM ticket was sold at a truck stop about 25 miles from me in a town called Buena.

      I guess it was not claimed yet.

        It was for the may 31st drawing, the ticket was sold at a place called Vineland truck stop.

        So the winner could be from out of state, lot of people from Delaware use that road to get to Atlantic city.

        But I don't know why someone from Delaware would buy MM in Jersey when you can claim anonymous in Delaware.

            Not everyone cares about claiming anonymously.

              She definitely deserves 10%. Had  I won all that loot, 10% would have easily gone her way-no question about it.

              10 percent is a little much.

              Although the whole ordeal is fraught with synchronistic determinism,

              i think  100,000 would be fair as the little old lady is not behooven to give anything.

                I would be surprised if she sent a thank you card.

                  there's enough money to go around even though everyone seems to think she is not obligated just out of decency maybe she should throw her and them kids a few dollars Love kindness goes a long way right

                    If she wasn't a mean old greedy selfish rude stingy biddy, she would have gotten out of the way when the clerk said "Its NOT your turn"

                        she may have already gave mindy some money but maybe she told her to keep quite so the hold town won't come knocking at her front door Jack-in-the-Box

                              If Gloria Mackenzie gave Mindy Crandell as much as $1, Crandell's lawyers would use it as an admission that she was somehow responsible for the outcome, and demand half.  This would prompt the person in front of Mackenzie in line to call for a 3-way split because he or she left sooner than planned to allow an old lady to proceed. The clerk could claim their kind, slow attention to the old lady timed her ticket precisely, and call for a 4-way split.  The person who held the door for Ms. Mackenzie as she entered the store could...........

                              And all of the claimants but Mackenzie would be either idiots or opportunists.

                              The winning ticket was randomly generated and the winning numbers were drawn through a random process at a later time at a different location.  The only person eligible for the prize, legally and morally, is the purchaser of the winning ticket!
