"A spokesman for Brius Healthcare called news media Thursday to relay the story of a nurse winning a share of the jackpot after owner Shlomo Rechnitz bought tickets for his employees.

Spokesman Josh Nass says he was told the nurse's son sent her a cellphone picture of a ticket.

But the New York Daily News reports the nurse's daughter says it was an embarrassing prank. The Los Angeles Times reports the daughter asked to remain anonymous to avoid drawing more attention to her family."

    On a "what were they thinking note"  a 270 member group from Florida bought about $140,000 (each member chipping in about $500)  worth of tickets and saw a return of hardly nothing.

    Just goes to show you that quantity does not always equal quality. All the TN winners spent were $8.00 for 4 tickets.

      I guess the lottery gods do not like NC! Everytime i turn around somebody in Florida , New York or the Midwest or the West always wins.  Can NC get a break for once?

      NC has won recently. Those states have the largest population CA, TX, NY, and FL have the most people. But NC has won and won part of the 6th biggest jackpot ever. Also TN has a much lower population and beat the odds TWICE now under the new matrix. One time that I remember but still won once lol.
