        She is not entitled to anything. Can you imagine the lawsuits this would generate as well for future winners? People claiming they were allegedly in line with the winner and let them cut ahead, or let them take a better parking space so they could get into the store sooner, etc. Random numbers are random.

          Like I said, she will have an excuse for not giving her a dime. (my attorney said not to)

            It's true she probably wouldn't have won. Quick Pick numbers aren't queued up waiting to be assigned.

            "Quick Pick numbers aren't queued up waiting to be assigned."

            It's amazing how so many people overlook this fact.

            I suspect they know, but just don't want to admit it.

            And some need to hear it multiple times.

                    Yea no kidding. And if I were her and decided to give the woman a little money, I would have her sign a confidentiality and non disclosure agreement saying she would have to return the money if she disclosed it publicly. If not, this lottery winner is going to make things more difficult for a lot of future lottery winners.

                        Why do you always make the assumption that other people are less intelligent than you are Jammy?

                        The whole point of the story is that the timing CHANGED and she won because of it.

                              The whole point of the story is that the timing CHANGED and she won because of it.

                              This is not a question of intelligence.  John Allen Paulos made this very clear in his book on Innumeracy in 1988.

                              If you and several others here "understood" how Quick Picks are generated, you would not persist in giving the "appearance" of a lack of intelligence by claiming the winner owes the other person anything.  I think your biggest problem is that this huge jackpot was won with a Quick Pick, when you believe the winning set can be selected from a subset of 28 numbers.

                              I recently posted in another thread on RNGs.  Look it up.
