Anyone who posts on here, has access to the internet, enough to have the time to post on a lottery forum, therefore you absolutely don't deserve to win.  There's an infinite amount of people in the country who deserve it over anyone on here, including me.

BS "Deserving" has nothing to with winning the lottery and what you currently have is irrelevant. I have the Internet but also work online all day and night to pay for it. I could make the argument that people on here are more deserving since they are die-hard lottery plays and have probably spent more than regular people. Also you have no idea what people are doing and how much they are helping others either. But none of that necessarily makes you more deserving than anyone else. This is the lottery not reward from God which past drawings proved that all types win bad and good. I have done a lot of good also for a very long time and cold do a lot more good with this as well. But I am not obligated to either that is my choice.

      I think it happens from time to time.Bang Head Better triple check those numbers  before claiming victory

      Yeah like that story on The Curse Of The Lottery where the Nebraska meatpacking plant workers won (8 of them) and the guys they put in charge of purchasing the tickets were immigrants, one from Vietnam (who had the tickets in hand when they won) and the other a dude from the Congo.  The Vietnamese guy's sister is on the show stating that they checked the tickets over and over and over by calling the lottery headquarters.  Shows that even though they heard the numbers right the first time they made absolutely sure it would not be a false alarm. They had the record jackpot at the time $365 Million.

        A lot of people just wait till the next day to check their tickets but I bet there are a lot of people staying up late this Wednesday night to see if they are the winners.  If they do win they are guaranteed to have a sleepless night if not nights.....hehehe

          Personally, I think everything happens for a reason, so anyone who wins is "deserving"...karma. Doesn't mean I understand or even agree with all that happens, but I like to think that the Universe runs on a much higher intelligence than I possess, so even though I don't like this setup and all the things that occur, there must be a good reason. :)

          Do you do marketing, or web design? I also work online. :)

                I am going out on a limb and say that no one is going to win the Jackpot tonight. I don't think anyone will win the jackpot until January 23, 2016.

                I hope that was a strong limb one winner in CA. LOL Same old same old, no one here wins and then the fever dies down and the forum goes back to crickets. Back to reality, see you in a few months. LOL

                        Assuming it's a sole winner they will walk with $594,034,000 after taxes in CA which has no state tax. Nice chunk of change!

                          I got the Powerball number 10 on five different tickets for tonight's draw.

                           

                          Chino Hills is in the Los Angeles area, near Riverside.

                            I won $4

                            Guess I will probably either buy a regular Illinois lotto QP or $4 worth of for life scratchoffs ($500 for life cost $1 or $1000 for life which cost $2 each)
