wonderful, i hope he doesn't loose it in lottery thinking he could win again.

Just think what he has already lost if he has been playing that way since the new matrix with 15 bonus balls started.  I'm guessing since he played for two drawings and got lucky on the first, that was his normal way of playing.  That's $60 a week for the last 78 weeks but he can continue to play that way for a while without showing a lost now that he's won $60K.

    Had his crazy strategy matched all five white balls, the NM Lottery would have had to cough up $75,000,000. I'm sure there is a hidden rule somewhere...there always is

    Even though $60K was nice he probably thought about what if he had played that 48 instead of 19.

      He was probably going for the jackpot so he'll probably continue to play like that until he wins a jackpot or goes broke.

        I think it's amazing matching 4 of 5 with Megaplier. I matched 4 back in 2008 when we didn't have megaplier in MA and got paid $150. It felt amazing.

        That money's gone fo ever

              Had his strategy worked he would had won more than $75,000,000.  If the number 19 can out instead of 48 then 14 tickets would of had all five white balls for $70,000,000 and one ticket would of had five white balls and the mega ball for the jack pot. The jack pot was $25,000,000.... For a Grand total of $95,000,000.

              MEGA MILLIONS JACKPOT IS $77 MILLION ON 7/29/2014.

              You can have a chance to win the jackpot for $1.
