"whatever numbers came into my head"

Seems I've heard this from others, including David Lee Edwards.

Hmmm... maybe a method worth trying.

 

Congrats to the winner. as for remaining normal, good luck w/that. now look for your "new normal"

      I Agree! ..especially reading about him counting nickels and dimes hoping to make it big. l wonder how long it took him to come up with $30.00?

      Who tip$ their nail tech with nickels and dimes?  I am way over tipping!

      Congratulations on your big win!  Enjoy your new life.

        If someone from California was able to claim the jackpot anonymously, the  conspiracy folks would claim no one got the money and MUSL, aka the Illuminati, was keeping the money all for themselves. That is why MUSL is rigging the drawings in California's favor, so they can keep the money and use the cash to buy chemtrails which they can spray on the unsuspecting public.

          Tried this so many times. Can't imagine it actually working.

          All systems/strategies have one thing in common, the winner did buy a ticket. Playing fortune cookies numbers or receipt numbers or quick picks or mistake tickets or cutting in line strategy aka the Gloria Mackenzie strategy all mean the winner did buy a ticket.

          I'm still going to play tonites powerball. Thumbs Up if you're playing

          That money's gone fo ever

                That's what they all say.  Congrats anyway, Viet.

                    The winner should be allowed to remain anonymous. If I won that much I would not want my identity published. 

                    Who would want every nutcase knowing they had that much?

                    I Agree!

                      It's funny you'd agree with him to allow people to claim anonymously. If someone from California ever claimed the jackpot anonymously, I'm sure you'd be the first one to cry foul and demand a full investigation.

                        First thing you did wrong,  was assume again...You know what they say about that.    Second,  everyone should have an option of claiming anonymously,  no matter what state.
