"My health is much more important to me than this check." 

How true.  You can always make more money easier than getting your health back after you have lost it from a lifetime of hamburgers, fries, pies, nicotine, and vodka.  Of course he would have took the jackpot over 3 million who wouldn't?  You missed his meaning.  He was seeing the glass half full not half empty!

Just from the words and that one picture he carries the aura of someone with more than enough money already.  You can tell a person who has money it just shows.  If thats the case he is being sincere that a few more mil isn't life changing for him.  I bet he played for "the action" as much as for the money.

He looks kinda slim maybe he's a vegan!Banana

      Congratulations to the winner. 

      I think people who can't collect anonymously just say something to get through the press conference.  How often they play, how and why they chose the numbers that happened to win is really no one's business. The only reason to buy MM tickets is to win money. You can guess the number without ever buying a ticket if it's just an intellectual workout you like.

          And you know that how?

          There's no way a casual player is going to use a Steve Player system.  That's ludicrous, and I can't imagine why you would be saying that.

          It's just natural for some folks to think when anyone comes that close to winning a jackpot with three tickets in the same drawing they had a system or strategy for playing.  If he had one he wasn't interested in talking about it with all that talk about money not being important.

          He may have been a casual player but he was a serious player having matched five on three tickets and four on two other ones.  He probably brought more than five tickets.

          People forget some players have strategies for playing games that they only play occasionally like the Michigan couple that traveled to Massachusetts to play its WindFall game when ever it rolled down.  One only read about these kinds of players when they have an unusual win.

            I've done 5 same lines with different mega balls before when the jackpot got around 300. He probably did this every draw.

                Hmmmm, maybe I should try this method, using family birthdays as the 5 numbers . . . .

                  I believe like you lildarryl....the guy had a system....and as far as his claim bout money....his talk was BS....he just told us all a good story.  He loves money, he has a system just like you said...or he wouldnt be playing like he does.

                    I Agree! That's the same vibe I'm getting off his story also!

                      It sounds like he plays for big jackpots, and probably a little ticked he didn't get the whole thing, as far as a system, I don't see that because a few of the numbers would be too high for a Bonus Ball, so he probably rotated the family numbers if you will, using only the numbers 15 or less for Bonus Balls, no special method just kept putting one of the numbers as the Bonus. The nuts and bolts of wheeling systems is that you have more numbers to use than what fit in the slots so there are rotation patterns that maximize coverage. Best way to test such a thing is have a subset of numbers and see how many fall within your subset, and know how many combinations have to be played to cover it (with or without using a subset of patterns as well), example if odds for 1 ticket are 200 million to one, then the odds for a good 10-ticket system would have to be better than 1 in 20 million, otherwise it may as well be 10 quick-picks.

                        Thank you.

                        While I think he might have  had a system, like Todd I doubt it was a Steve Player system or any other commercial system.  Systems that can be brought are for players who aren't capable or willing to think for themselves.  Only he knows for sure how he picked his numbers and from his conversation it's going to stay that way.

                          Too bad he didn't do Megaplier; would have jumped him up to $12 million.  Still $3 million isn't chump change either.
