I don't think he planned out the timing of his purchase.

Says "he was about to walk out the store without buying the tickets but at the last minute he decided to buy four!"

What is the significance of his purchase being @ 12:27:17 PM? Does Michigan stop selling PB/MM tickets @ 12:30 in the Afternoon?   Just asking i don't know what Michigan ticket purchase rules are..

Seems Very Early in the day to stop selling tickets for drawing that doesn't take place until 12:00 AM Eastern time.

Arizona cut off time in the summer is 7 PM (well) 6:58 there about and 7:57-58 PM in the Winter since we do not participate in Daylight Savings Time.

Congratulations to the Entire Chippewa Family, may all the Blessings and Spirits of Mother Earth continue on in your Family...

Way to go Native American Indians! Party

He didn’t plan anything

It was this exact timing buying 4 tickets QP that did the trick

    You are entitled to your opinion noise-gate.

     I am throwing out ideas. Some things that they might not have thought about.

     Whatever happened to MI Lottery Commissioner Scott Bowen? He interviewed Julie Leach and the railroad engineer Donald Lawson.  Both are listed in Related Stories located at the top of this thread. 

     You win something this weekend!

    LOL..Well you did ask my opinion on " What is your opinion on sending the Grand kids to private school?"

    l am " afraid " to give an opinion on your question " Whatever happened to MI Lottery Commissioner Scott Bowen."Approve

      Love feel good stories like this, down to earth folks winning big.

      Did I miss if it was Quick Pick or his own #'s?

      Does it really matter if it's self or machine pick?

      The numbers I've been working on, for a couple decades have yet to be picked.

      • 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)
      • Oh, but always know where your tickets are, as well as your ticket's deadline.

        People often ask....Why them and not me?

        Well, go out and buy your ticket at the exact moment a ticket with the winning numbers is printed on it and you too can be the winner.

        Do the numbers on the ticket match the numbers drawn or do the numbers drawn match the numbers printed on your ticket?

                    Find time? Phil is a biker, those guys always find time for babymaking.All that riding around on a hog builds up the testosterone. Where does he find time..sheesh!

                    l bet soup for nuts that if Phil turns around, one would see a foot length ponytail. Receding hairline up front, but one can alway count on the faithful PT to be back there. l see it all the time out here- it's a universal calling card, typical of bikers LGB.

                      How do we know if these really random drawings ,how we  suppose to know these winners arent working with the lottery to bring in more currency..... IT SEEMS LIKE THE LOTTERY PICK AND CHOOSE WHERE THEY WANT THE WINNERS TO BE AND NOT JUST A RANDOM PICK OF WINNERS....ITS A TRENDING TOPIC OF US SEARCHING FOR PROOF😉

                          You know what, you could be onto something Rubber. l distinctly " recall" a flyer in my mailbox & email from the MUSL asking me specifically  if " l had 7 children, was a Grandfather of 21." l dismissed it as a hoax, but l can see where you going with this. l guess, had l replied " Yes to all of the above" it could have been my jackpot win instead of Phil's.

                          l am literally getting sick to my stomach just thinking about it, you will have to excuse me...

                            There is only a 4% chance of any Powerball ticket winning something so for every $200 you wager, expect 4 of your tickets to win something. And with a minimum 1 in 701 chance for a ticket to "win" $7 those 4 "winning" tickets will probably we worth $16. 

                            Somebody somewhere will win a large jackpot and the winnings come from the other players. Some people because they contributed, believe their opinions on the winner should spend their money means something, but it doesn't.

                              LOL..Well you did ask my opinion on " What is your opinion on sending the Grand kids to private school?"

                              l am " afraid " to give an opinion on your question " Whatever happened to MI Lottery Commissioner Scott Bowen."Approve

                              I was asked my opinion on who should win the World Series and after giving it, they proceeded to explain why I was wrong. There is a huge difference between being asked for an opinion and randomly offering one and IMO, it's rude to ask for an opinion and then discount it because they don't like "your opinion". 

                              Now if you just randomly offer an opinion, you're fair game.
