        If they claimed the ticket on March 10th, why is this story only hitting Lottery Post on July 1st?

        hmmm

        Yea I was thinking the same thing?

              Can you imagine their winnings had they bought the right lottery ticket?

              If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
              If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

              P&L % = Total Win($)/Total Wager($) - 1

                  LOL they didn't win because they bought the wrong ticket, they won because they bought in a "Cain't lose" state.

                      If that was true then why I haven't won yet? Since OCT 2011

                              Congratulations to this lottery jackpot winner. I didn't know that jackpot was revised upward from $165 million to $169 million in that upcoming draw on my sister (Phuong)'s 37th birthday because it was her birthday that day.

                              I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the PB to win the largest PB jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars! I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Mega Ball to win the largest Mega Millions jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!
