Someone on YouTube, a young man named Toppy Nikci is claiming he won the Nov 4 , 2014 Mega Millions jackpot.

To view it just type in NY Mega Millions Nov 4 2014 to view it .

Just amazing what folks will do to draw attention to themselves.

What?

    Just a few extra words on Quick Picks ... if you remember the 24 yr old woman from Michigan that won a nice jackpot last June ... she played $10 a week ($5 + $5) for five years and got lucky ... but four number sets of the five number set were her own numbers and the last number set was a Quick Pick. I don't know if all the numbers were on one ticket or five separate tickets.

    The QP set were the numbers that won the jackpot ... she's lucky she went with one QP.

     This was on Friday the 13 (June 2014) and the MB was also 01 ...

     

    Friday the 13th was a mega lucky day for Kelsey Zachow.

    But for 11 days, the 24-year-old Port Huron resident didn't know she had the winning $66-million Mega Millions lottery ticket — purchased June 13 at Sonny's Mart in Mt. Clemens — in her purse.

    On her way to work June 13, she bought five Mega Millions plays, four with her regular numbers and one easy pick. Her easy pick numbers of 07-38-46-49-56 and Gold Mega Ball of 01 matched the Mega Millions numbers drawn that night.

      Self pick or QP- it matters not to the outcome; those balls that are spinning are not having a conversation between themselves saying " Hey guys,just a reminder-we only spit out numbers for QP plays ..ok?"

      BTW- why is the vendor payout so low?- out on the West Coast,  that vendor would have pocketed a cool $1 million or thereabouts. .

        A lot of states don't pay % on prizes...they just pay a flat amount for big prizes and higher (or not) commission on volume of tickets sold.

        If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
        If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

        2016: -48.28% (13 tickets) ||

            Eighty year old man waits six weeks to claim his winning mega millions fortune. Why did he wait so long. His wife was a math teacher. What was she trying to figure out. The theory of everything.

                He took his time claiming his winnings so that he could get everything in order like finding a new place to live and getting his finances organized with his family. Do you really think at the age of eighty he would return back to his home and expose himself along with his family to all the lunatics out there? we are talking about New York and I am willing to bet many of them would feel entitled to a portion of his winnings.

                He most likely headed to the airport shortly after his press conference and I am pretty sure it's nice and warm wherever he may have landed..

                        That's a nice win but the reality is that his offspring will truly enjoy it.  Congrats!

                        I hope he does not just hand it over to his children and grandchildren. Maybe give then $100,000 each, for those under 25 on their 25th birthday. Live on the rest and when he and his wife pass on, the remaining money to go to a charity.

                          I think it is a pity he has to be identified, because he has to move house now; which is more difficult at 80. New York should reconsider it's policy and allow winners to remain anonymous. If you live in New York, contact your state politicians.
