        The jp winners don't need any congratulations.

        Why would they?

        They bought their tickets like I and 207 Million others did. I've not checked my numbers, but I guarantee you I'm not of the top 3.

        Do you think those winners will ever give you anything.

        Nobody really cares for the winners.

        Nope, F them. LOL I don't congratulate any of them and never have, they would not me either. Also in 11 years on here not ONCE did I ever see one show up on here and say "Thank you!" LOL All the winners most likely never read any congrats posts on here. They would not give a crap about this site or anyone on it and you would never see a dime. So if it's not me I could care less. I may congratulate a member though on here and have done that before for smaller win, as they have done for me. Most are just casual players who have no clue and are not members on lottery forums. Would be nice to actually see a member here win the big one, it should be me soon!

        I almost won the Cash 5 matching 4 out of 5 when it was up to $1.6 million. I got to feel that "all my numbers are matching" feeling it was great until the last one did not match. Was a crazy combination too. 05 07 08 09 30. Winning numbers were 07 08 09 14 30. I was happy but pissed as the difference between that one number was $220 and $1.6 million. I was ready to announce it on here too lol.

            Another gem from this reporter;

            "The largest lottery jackpot the world has ever seen has been won Wednesday night by three tickets sold in California, Florida, and Tennessee".

            NO.  The jackpot WAS NOT won by "three tickets".............

            It was won by three persons who bought tickets in Cali, TN, and FL.

            I thought you had to go to school to be a writer.....

            Nah, actually it was so big that tickets started playing tickets. Green laugh It is correct though as they are saying "was won by three tickets SOLD in California, Florida, and Tennessee." You cut it off after tickets.

                Yep post lottery loss depression. All that dreaming which lead to nothing except going back to their mundane realities. Sucks going from a super, lotto, fever, high to a super, lotto, losing, low. But I got used to it long ago. It is what you expect after awhile yet you still hope for the big win. The horrible weather only makes it worse.

                  Even split 3 ways and after taxes it's going to be close to 200 million each and I think at least 28 people

                  won a $1 million prize.  Lots of winners so good for them.

                    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?

                      Well it is 3 "tickets" we don't know though if it is 3 people total, could have been a pool on one or more tickets.

                        Look at the total sales for those states, they are sometimes triple that of most.  It's a numbers thing and

                        the big surprise was TN.  I was a bit shocked someone from NY did not win.

                            Even a pool of 50 people would still get a nice return and I hope all 3 were pools.

                            $4 mill each, I call that a nice payday.

                              Not sure why people have the post Powerball blues (Blue Powerballs), the jackpot will rise high (400 million+) again eventually, maybe even by March if not sooner.
