Aren't they brothers?  I am also not sure if they are going to "split" the jackpot as it seems like both of them were playing separately.  Who knows?!  Not my money so I'm not going to worry about it.

    Who Da hell they think they talking too? This is fake that's why the universe allowed Michael Tipton case to happen. Cynthia o Connell and the head Musl guy got canned after 36 years. These guys must have security clearances to act as winners. They so full of $hyt who they think they playing with? It's a pattern with them Florida wins.

            Another Quick Pick wins big. No system - just luck!

            Isn't this the doggonedest news you've ever heard?

            A judge of all people. Somebody who has all the money he could ever use wins the doggone jackpot.

            It's not fair. It's just not fair.

            How do you all see this?


            • Don't chase the numbers you play.
            • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
            • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.

                  Maybe there's something to that theory of buying your tickets in one of the states that sell the most winners, it seems to have worked for the judge. Wink

                   * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                    Hello fellow posters long time no post. You know i have been looking at the posts from time to time and i was wondering if anybody noticed that the winners were from Cali and florida for the last JP drawing. When i saw that the first thing, i said oh my gosh here we go again! There are going to be some folks ranting like nuts over the fact that the big states won big again. And when nobody said nothing over the last few days, I thought Hmmm, some people must be got tired hollerin about the same ol same ol LOL But anyway congrats to the Pennsylvanians.Thumbs Up

                        Do you really think that location has a thing to do with winning the lottery?

                        Your odds of winning are the same no matter where you buy your ticket(s).

                        Whether you get 1 or 100, you have the same lousy chance to win 292 mil to 1.

                        Congrats to the PA Judge and his lotto winning group. Party

                          I guess it all depends on your point of view: If you asked the Judge: He'd say it was fair.

                          A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

                              Isn't this the doggonedest news you've ever heard?

                              A judge of all people. Somebody who has all the money he could ever use wins the doggone jackpot.

                              It's not fair. It's just not fair.

                              How do you all see this?


                              Well, maybe you should get a grip. Yes, he is well to do, probably lives comfortably, but his salary as a judge would not be in the millions.

                              I'm happy for the guy. It shows anyone can win. I think it's funny that a guy on a fishing trip or whatever from PA wins Powerball in FL.

                              CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN
