Saying that a person beat the odds, sounds incorrect, since the math is true. 1 person out of hundred of millions that played has won.

      To all of the conspiracy theorists.  Yes, it drives me nuts to see California, Florida, New York etc.. win all the time, but:


      This is the only 2nd Mega Millions jackpot sold in Indiana, however Indiana still has the most PB wins in the nation (38) mostly thanks to how we were the only state in the area with Powerball back in the day. We used to have Illinois and Ohio pouring over the borders to buy up tickets, so as you will see eventually New York, California, Florirda etc.. will eventually decrown us if not Pennsylvania first.  The thing I found odd was we would typically have 5-6 2nd prize winners a year, however we have had very few in the last few years.  The latest being the Powerball 2nd prize won a few draws ago.  I think it goes with the massive decline in sales seen in the state due to all states being MM and PB for the most part now.

      I Agree!Yes, i have notice that also!

        I read that the winner has contacted Indiana lottery officials and will be having a representative claiming the prize. Smart move!

          Yep, a Indiana family is claiming the winnings through an LLC to protect their privacy. Smart move indeed.
