If I should be the winner...I hope, I hope, I hope... I will know exactly where the ticket is and will be claiming my prize after securing financial and legal assistance.

Party

I wanna go the Robinson's way - hire a crappy, money grubbing lawyer and hit the talk shows before going to the lottery to cash the ticket! 

Wonder if there will EVER be anyone who does it worse then them?

Speaking of them, anyone know anything new since they won?

    Skeptical  going to be a strange evening for certain

     

    good luck to those playing .... and I hope its a single ticket winner

    I bought 3 picks at different locations may get another one tonight if I happen to make an errand. Those tickets will sit inside the side pocket on my purse so no chance of misplacing/losing them.

    Good luck to you tonight.

       The Robinsons learned the hard way. They are a wholesome family so I believe they will remain private from now on to the best of their ability. No Jack Whitaker there.

       I was thinking about the Chino Hills winner and that is a rich neighborhood so they can afford to wait.

       If I win tonight then I can expect to collect $192,680,000.00 after all taxes and the deduction are taken out.   Here in California, I will wait six to eight weeks to get the check.

       I was watching the video of the Robinsons and Joe said that he did not feel well the night of the draw. I hope he has recovered from that illness. All the best to them.

          Over the weekend I bought two quick picks.  Woke up this morning (in a daze thinking it was Wednesday) and checked the MM numbers on the lottery website.  I didn't match any numbers so I threw the tickets in the trash.  An hour later I realized the drawing is tonight!  LOL...Good thing I didn't tear them up.  Just a little crumpled.  Sad but true.

          PSA.  Reason #5 to recycle.  Because if you accidentally throw out a lottery ticket, it will still be in your bin (and coffee grounds/peach pits/chicken juice free) when the news comes out that a big winner was sold in your town.

                            I predict no winners AGAIN.

                            .

                            Mr. JJ The Prince,

                            Please don't say that.  Somebody needs to win the doggone thing, this time.
                            I don't think I can handle another non-winner, this time.

                            OK?

                            Mr. Groppo

                            • 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.
                                      (so far, though, I've yet to win any significant lotto prize)
