Amazing that her friends and family were teasing her with a joke that the lady who stepped in front of her would win...and then it actually happened! So nowhere in this story does it say the 84 year old woman would give the mom of 2  who she stepped in front of some money for her generosity. If this lady doesn't make any attempt to track her down and give her some money, that wouldn't be nice at all!

I hope the 84 year old woman does the right thing and shares some of her winnings with the woman who allowed her to step in front of her. If someone told me I can go in front of them and then I won that amount of money i'd donate a mininum of $25 Million to that person.

      This whole story is starting to sound like one be scam to me to get some of Gloria and her son's money.

      In her statement from an earlier story here at LP, Gloria C. Mackenzie said "While in line at Publix, another lottery player was kind enough to let me go ahead of them in line to purchase the winning Quick Pick ticket."

      Then this woman, Mindy Crandell comes forward and has a press conference to say she didn't get upset when Gloria cut in front of her to buy the winning ticket.

      Now we learn it was a man that allowed Gloria to go in front him to buy the winning ticket.

      If this Mindy is telling the truth, she should have some PB tickets with the time stamped within seconds of the winning ticket from the same terminal. If she doesn't then she is just running a scam thinking public pressure will force Gloria and her son to share  their jackpot with her or prove she's a liar.

       * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

            I've read the article HelpMeWin posted from a newspaper clipping that states McKenzie said a man let her cut in line, but I've also read several articles on the net where McKenzie is grateful to Mindy, woman.

                Your not afraid that it would cause lawsuits all over the country every time a jackpot is won?

If she doesn't then she is just running a scam thinking public pressure will force Gloria and her son to share  their jackpot with her or prove she's a liar.

                  Publix have surveillance cameras that can easily go back to the date and time to see who really let Gloria Mackenzie go ahead. Plus the exact day and time is on the ticket so it wont take their cctv security 2 minutes to go back to that very moment. Until they come forth with that we wont really know if it was this woman or a man. You cant really trust the media they get things wrong all the time but an uncut video recording tells it all.

                   

                  Personally speaking if I was the winner and someone let me go ahead of them.I would care less about how the qps are generated and just blest that person anyway.it takes a selfish person to negatively analyze this and say"well she wouldnt have won anyway because the tickets change every 3 seconds blah blah blah so on and so forth"I would go to publix supermarket management to pull the tapes and ask the person to come forth and use my recollection and the video take to confirm his or her identity.Then I would give that person at least 4 million dollars.

                  I have given people on Lp money as a gift for helping me hit on c3 and p4 when I first started playing.and I am not talking about the clown on here that charge people for numbers on his "subscribers list".I am not dumb you wont make that money off of me.anyway.I hope Mrs. Mackenzie put her money to good use and truly bless that person that she either attempted to cut or just let her go ahead!

                        That's what I was thinking, Ronnie.

                        There will probably br some creeps who don't even intend to buy a ticket that will stand in lines just to let people go in front of them, hoping that person will be a winner too.

                        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

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

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

                          Open your eyes to the truth Jammy.

                              i was joking, but if you let 100 people in a day, and they spend $100 ea thats like 1000 free tickets. personally the reward for being nice is knowing you are ncie and the thank you you recieve.   what ever happens its upto the old  broad, and what she wants to do. not for us to judge. lets get on with us wining our own jackpots and leave the old lady in peace.
