We haven't heard from golfer1960 so perhaps it was him? just not sure if he plays small jackpots.

No D, it wasn't me. I'm gonna try PB tonight though.

Good luck to you too!

    I suspect that another reason is the ridiculously long odds; coupled with the fact that people have the experience of losing significant money without even a minor win, say $5, is wearing out enthusiasm.

    I Agree!

          6 numbers under 32 still produces a lot of combinations that would need to be picked. Higher then average, but not such a big chance of someone winning.

                It hit for $487 mil. Original estimates were $478 mil

                That gives the winner about another $6 mil worth of lump in their lump sum cash value.

                  I have a feeling that the winner was probably from outside the state and went there for the no tax advantage. I obviously have no way of knowing whether that's true or not but I just have the feeling.

                    Congratulations New Hampshire.

                     

                    I remember crossing the border on our many trips from Massachusetts to New Hampshire.  As soon as you crossed the border was a building that said New Hampshire Sweepstakes on it.  They are the original Founding Fathers if you will of the modern lottery; they just didn't call it that. 

                     

                    To this day there are numerous stores right on the border that sell lottery tickets from an era when not all states that have lotteries now had lotteries then.  I bet there were some serious lines @ Primm store in California from Nevadans.  Suppose the same is true for MS and AL in this neck of the woods.

                      Live free or die! Hope the winner was from here and not just "passing thru".

                          I'd love to see the reaction of some if the winning ticket was sold near the Canadian border, and was bought by a true border crosser...

                          We can all breathe, thankfully, as it was sold no where near the Canadian border, but near the Maine border (Raymond, NH).

                            Winning ticket was sold at a Hannafords grocery store in Raymond. This increases the likelihood it was somebody local as this is not a border town and somewhat off the beaten path. My son in laws parents are from this town. Would be very cool (but unlikely) if they won.
