    No mightwin-You have been away far too long. We thinking a dozen 1st place winners, and why the heck not!

    Let's make it a FIRST- let's make History.

    Nobody's  thinking when their buying a lottery ticket is "I hope I get to split my winnings with a bunch of other people"....lol

      Sez's Greater minds which are at work here. Having very few massive jackpots a year and only One winner?..screw that. Common sense dictates that people ought to be getting a return on their dream...meaning Winning.Yeah l said it, so there.Maybe not 12, but One-screw that...big time.

        I run a lottery pool in my office that has a total of 11 members, if one of our tickets hits we can do that.

            Exactly- everyone wants a Piece of the action. The idea that only one person has to win is NUTS. Try telling Pools they crazy..

            This mentality " l want no one else to win" is greed!!

                Nobody plays for 2nd place. You starting to sound like that Guy who says " Certain States have not won" mightwin.

                  There were 980 Match 5 winners (prizes of $1 million or $2 million). During the 1st 2 years since they made the change and thats plenty of winners if ya ask me

                        Exactly which is why when there is only one jackpot winner it makes the win that much sweeter Big Smile

                          This mentality " l want no one else to win" is greed!!...........so what your saying is that you want multiple winners for the jackpot and if you happen to win the jackpot and nobody else than that would be totally alright? (Just because you had that multiple winner mentality going into it?)Would you share the prize with all the second place winners because they were the closest then? Just asking

                            LOL lol at the thought of fast food with that kind of money

                            You underestimate my love for Chick-fil-a, Whataburger, Raising Canes, Chicken Express, and a select few hole-in-the-wall burger joints. Fancy restaurants would be the last place on my mind, except maybe for sushi.

                              Its luck, NOT Greed. And its for that which is in need.

                              Its two dollars and a dream.

                              May we all dream well and be well in the process.
