For their sake I hope they don't blow it in 5 years like many other winners!

Speaking of, I wish the feds mandated that all states give the option of claiming anonymously. Down here in FL, if you win you can decline to take a photo but you still have to give out your name and city. That may be fine if someone's name is John Smith but when someone's name is like, well.... MINE it would be pretty easy to figure it out.

Down here, I'll continue to play the state lotto which is up to 46 million for tonight.

    luck changed two human live overnight from rag to riches style . congrats to the winners

    If it's in the Buckhead area the person who won can very well be from the riches side of the tracks already.    I just hope the people are under the age of fifty as I hate seeing senior citizens win.

     

    I was kind of shocked none of the 5 + 0 people played the Megaplier option.

      2 tickets win the jp! WTG to those players. Where is the news on the lower tiered prizes? Anyone know?

      I didn't win anything and really didn't expect to but I guess with my talk about I don't need THAT much, I

      suppose someone was listening and didn't let me win any of it.

      I'll change tunes next time the jp is up there: I NEED EVERY CENT OF IT. That should do it.

      246 ~~ 485 ~~ 369 ~~ 890 ~~ 705 ~~ 357 ~~ 129 ~~ 165 ~  007 ~ 225 ~ 818 ~ 440 ~  7775 5557

        Shenanigans,  time for an investigation!  It can't be conicidence that the same state wins all the time.  Oh and the state that the draws are done from coincidentally won too.

            How do you know the winners weren't already rich or at the very least well off? Plenty of already well off people have won in the past.

              You would have to be a special kind of stupid to blow through as much money as both will get in just five years.

                Bash  Fifty is the new 40. I hope the winners are in their 50's with kids grown and gone so they can enjoy life best. They're young enough to enjoy it and old enough to know better.

                    Good for the winners!

                    Now maybe we can come down from Level 16 lottery insanity and revert back to the normal Level 3.

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

                    Lep

                    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.

                      Keeping an open mind that they come forward in the next few weeks to claim. Age is a number and so is winning. So long as they are breathing and have a pulse, kudos for the win. 

                      I was skeptically amazed that the numbers drawn were low numbers....They knew folks would play birthday numbers....Conspiracy? I think not, just the luck of balls.
