WTG to the ticket holder !! 

Someone said that the person is Greedy?? Really? I call it pure blessings to purchase a ticket and be able to claim it. How is it greedy for that person? They beat the odds . 

I'd say Congrats and move on in life.

This is exactly why I block your sorry posts.

Someone - not naming names but not for the reason you don't - informed

me you took yet another jab at me.

Nowhere on this thread did anyone mention, type, hint at or accuse someone

of being greedy. I posted that on the PA thread. If you misread what I wrote

as having anything to do with the winner, then your reading ability is equal

to your writing ability in that it's just lacking and strange.

I was referring to the lottery giants and their need for more by changing total

numbers used, costs per ticket, bigger more frequent advertising and an it

can happen to you induced frenzy with insane odds. They are the epitome

of GREED.

You and I go way back....I don't care about you, can you return the favor please?

See, I can be nice Big Grin

And as far as your seemingly kind, benevolent nature, you need to utilize your 

signature line and adhere to the suggestions you push on others. You use subtle

criticism and sarcasm to make a point and that is totally contrary to any blessing

you wish upon others.

T - take a chill pill

H - heed your own advice

I - ignore me if you don't like me

N - needle not that you be needled

K - keep practicing

Move on...best thing you said up there.

Oh, I think I have a new name for you...getoveritgrl.

Thanks for visiting the PA thread...you never post but you saw me mention greed.

We are pretty good over there, I understand the mixed emotions. Darn!

    I think a group of 50 won it

    $10 each= 500 chances to win without the megaplier or 250 with

    $10.8 Mill each would still be a nice pay day

      Mr./Ms. PickToWin,

      I think many/most of us can relate to your frustration.
      I often think I'm the most vulnerable, of anyone, anywhere.

      But yeah, I agree. Especially, when there are potentially 7.3 billion people who were competing
      for the prize. But, it happened. No one else duplicated the winning number, besides Indiana.

      So, I too have had that sour feeling in my stomach since around 12:50am, this morning.
      I didn't even want breakfast this morning.

      I certainly don't need all that cash, only $1 million, but I had my month of dreaming.

      It turns out I won absolutely nothing, zip, nada, niks (Dutch), tipota (Greek), meiyou (Chinese),
      asgjë (Albanian), rien (French),  nichego (Russian), kitu (Swahili), ingenting (Norwegian), nani mo (Japanese).

      Mr. Groppo

      It's not that anyone needs all those millions. Just as no one needs to be broke, homeless etc. It's the circumstances that the Jackpot winner found themselves in. No one on this site, if they found themselves in the circumstances of the winner, would claim a million only, and tell the lottery commission divide the rest among those who only need $1 Million.

      It's no one's fault that the winner one. That's what's wrong with our country at this hour. Everyone wants to blame someone or something for why their circumstances are what they are. Millions played, only one won the Jackpot.

        .

        This is purely an observation.
        Two persons we've not seen comments from, yet, today are Dpoly1, and LiveInGreenBay.

        Interestingly, they both use the same image.

        I'm not implying anything, but I'd certainly have expected to see some comments from them.

        Does anyone else here agree?

        I'm thinking they either won, or were part of the group that won.
        It's just a suspicion, but I'm usually wrong about them too.

        So, if you see any comments from them, just act normal.
        Don't be like "Hi LiveinGreenBay, WHERE'S MY MONEY!"

         

         

         

        (groppo, you're hopeless)

        • 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)

          for all of you obsessed with lists of what place all these jackpots are in lifetime maybe we need lists of the top 25 mm's won on a tuesday both cash and annuity and another for friday's both cash and annuity. same thing for powerball wednesday's and saturday's. then you will have 4 meaningless lists to stare at instead of 2. no one who has ever won cares what place they are in lifetime so why do people who are never going to win (everyone on here) care. also, this nonsense of certain states having some advantage or it being fixed for that state to win causing some idiots to actually drive to a certain state to play because they think it is lucky or it's due. news flash: some states win more often because more tickets are sold there. no other logical reason. the only thing that matters is the ticket you buy having the correct numbers on it whether you choose them or some machine does it for you. it does not matter where you buy it, when you buy it, only if you buy it. spend your time trying to find some lucky numbers instead of lamenting over jackpot amounts lifetime standings or which state has won the most times. at least this time he didn't update that list in the article. now it can actually be read much easier.

            Want some cheese with that whine?

            There also 7 people that won a million dollars. 3 won 2 million.

            It's not about need. It's about winning money that takes care of yourself, your kids, and their kids for the rest of their lives.

            Big Smile

            I like cheese...sticks, but not whine..I was disappointed also at the news

            of one winning ticket. I agreed with the poster...I wish they could have 

            more winners when the JP is that big. It would be nicer to see a few people

            split a mega-pot.

              We're all sad today Farber because we didn't win. We're just trying to have some fun with our disappointment.

                I hope the winner steps forward and claims the cash value jackpot.

                I hope that little Timmy gets out of the well.

                  it's faber and i get it that you are all sad and are entitled to have "fun", so have it by playing powerball tonite. you still have 20 minutes or so to get some tickets or more tickets. or is that jackpot too skimpy or the 2.00 price too much. don't play though if you live in a state that never wins because that makes a difference. there are no borders on a multi-state game. buy one anywhere.

                    I have an observation to share. In 2015 there were a lot more jackpots hit.

                    For example:

                    As of July 8th, 2016 there have only been 6 MUSL jackpots hit (3MM and 3PB).

                    As of July 4th, 2015 there were 13 MUSL jackpots won (4MM and 9PB).

                    The reason less PB winners? Because Powerball changed their Matrix on 10/7/15 to make larger jackpots and make it harder to win.

                    Collectively there were 20 MUSL jackpots hit in 2015 (8MM and 12PB).

                    I guess Powerball is realizing their dream of less winners but bigger jackpots in 2016.

                      it'll probably be changed again

                      then we'll see a once a year win with 1B jackpots being the new normal

                      of course if they do that they'll have to make the lesser prizes bigger to hold people's interest

                        Well, drats that took care of that dream!!  I never even heard of that city in Indiana!  It was a fun dream while it lasted!

                        Saylorgirl, according to Wikipedia, Cambridge City is only 1sq mile in size and the population is only 1,870 (as of 2010).

                        Cambridge City is about 56 miles east of Indianapolis, IN (1hr dirve).

                        Definitely a throw back to the good Ole days.

                          I am staring at the figure of Indiana on that Cambridge City sign. It looks like someone bit the lower half of the State off like a candy bar would be eaten.Scared

                           I just searched Indiana lottery winners and there is a picture of a badger. The Hoosier State is badger country.

                           I've been rich and I've been poor. Believe me, rich is better.
