Congratulations, but I doubt he's keeping his job.  LOL 

Not once people know who he is. 

 

That's really cool he won though.

    Why in gods name would you take a $20 million dollar ticket to the store and risk it! There are many ways to check your ticket in private are you kidding me! How dumb can you be I guess ppl want to get robbed!!!

      I usually go to the main source (i.e.  megamillions-DOT-com or powerball-DOT-com), and they will usually have a story about what state the winner(s) are from.    In this case, it was california, again.

       

      Sorry, this was in reply to someone asking a question of where to find what state the winner came from.  The 'quote' function didn't work like I thought it would.

            The MM result is out. I hate it!...I always get just 3 numbers all the time...2 numbers and the MB. Anyway not bad for $2 tickets.Smile

            You are spending $10 per drawing to get 3 numbers.

              Just give us a scanner that tells us exactly how much we won, that way we don't have to hand over our tickets to the clerk, instead of the 4king scanner, that flashes "BIG WINNER". These tightwads are part of the problem.

              Check your lottery tickets on the lottery website.

                  That is quite impressive. Despite my 11 wins since the new MM matrix went into effect, almost half -a-year ago (six months , to be precise), I have only managed to match two winning numbers, including tonight.

                  You are spending $1 instead of $10 per drawing.

                    LOL Love it when people win low jackpots after the insane change in odds. Just like with Powerball, MegaMillions is going to learn why Powerball readjusted theirs after a year or two.

                    Mega Millions is bating players into buying tickets at low jackpot levels.

                      Yessir! I love it too. MM will have to introduce changes to price or matrix soon if this keeps happening so often.

                      Mega millions can't compete with Powerball $2 ticket cost.

                        Nice win!

                        I found $10 in a parking lot yesterday! Hoping that this is my lucky weekend!

                        Buy a $10 Powerball lottery ticket.

                          Good luck to all who are playing tonight! I am skipping PB and  Mega Million as I am participating in the Ohio Classic Lotto for the next 9 drawings. I am well aware that the likelihood of winning is zilch but hey I can dream!

                          Your have better chances of winning MM and PB than Ohio classic lotto. Winning the lottery is a numbers game, the odds do not matter.

                            One time the scanner said $8 winner and i did'nt believe it.

                            You have more losers than winners.LOL

                              Those are scary words M- the odds are in the stratosphere as it is - what " changes" do you expect to see- perhaps MM jacking the odds into the 350 mil to 1 odds?

                              We will see a $5 national game very soon. Powerball $2 ticket price set the standards for all drawing games.
