I guess that means nobody wants to hear about my winning $1000 on a scratch off a couple of hours ago! (10X Mega Money-Texas Lottery)

Congratulations,fwlawrence,on your $1000 win.Feels good,don't it?

    I hope the winner steps forward. I wonder what was the single largest jackpot winning ticket in Florida?

      This thread isnt about me..geesh misery loves company I see that clearly..so I guess I am crazy to continue to address these low life insecure bitter old has beens...you people(you know who you are)main goal is to get on here trolling for your next prey so you can take over a thread and make it be about that person that made a comment that you disagree with.I believe you may even secretly agree with me but for the sake of drama you show differently.I wont say any names but I clicked on the last 100 posts for that person and no where did I see that person offering anything besides useless drama..to have a productive dialogue with a person is to be able to understand that your opinions differ, yet you can converse and understand why a person feel the way that he/she does..and still walk away disagreeing yet in a peaceful manner..no instead you people and your other miserable minions get on here and become cyber bullies disrupting the positive flow of the thread...you say "I am crazy, I harbor resentment, I am on medication, I have lost it,Im a sore loser, I whine"..you people pulled that out of my post..there is no indication in my post that would cause a reasonable person to say those things about me..lol..but the grinches of lottery post will turn sugar cane into bitter wood once they put their hands on it..some of you are too darn old to be on here acting like 3rd graders..the people I am talking about know exactly who they are...if people really read and comprehended what I said you would see there is no need to attack me.IT'S MY OPINION..but I wont respond any more..I just request for the forum to go back to a positive flow.I am excited that a winning JACKPOT TICKET WAS SOLD IN MY AREAPartyParty..Excited to see who won!!!

          Ready to hit that $44.4 mil Classic Monday night? Might be largest state jackpot left now that Fla. won...

          From what I have read, it seems like this jackpot hasn't been hit in over a year. I was in Ohio a few weeks ago and even played a few tickets....never checked the tickets until I got back to Florida. It didn't even matter since I didn't match a single number.

          It would be nice if someone from LP won it. Good luck to you and the other LP members from Ohio.

              It certainly does. Especially since I got the full amount. I thought they were going to withhold 25% for taxes. Boy, was I surprised!

                This 7-11 is located right up the street from Downtown Disney and near many of the Disney area hotels.  It is very possible that the winner of this $59 million jackpot is either an out-of-state tourist or even one of the estimated 66,000 people employed by Disney World.  I've been chasing this jackpot since it was at $12 million on its slow crawl ($1m or $2m increases every drawing) to $59 million.  Didn't even win any small prize the entire time. Whata Shame! Disapprove

                The Lotto jackpot would grow faster if FL would dump MUSL (PB + MM). Support your local lottery and keep the money in the state.  Boycott MUSL!!!

                        You'll get a W-G at the end of the year to file with your tax returns.

                          You're lucky you didn't match 3, it pays $2 which you might not had wanted to spend the effort to collect.

                            The winner is so lucky to win the jackpot prize alone. If I will win $59 million I will buy a house,  start a business and definitely I will not forget my community. I will make sure that I will be able to give back to my community as well. I need to work on my strategies to further enhance my chance of winning.
