MARTINSVILLE, N.J. — Today, Lottery Post published the latest installment of the new Weekly Roundup series featuring some of the most prominent lottery stories in the month of February.

If you frequent Lottery Post's homepage or Lottery News forum, chances are you've seen quite a few notable stories this month, such as the one about Ontario's youngest jackpot winner ever who recently won a $48 million (US$35.6 million) Lotto 6/49 prize on her first lottery ticket ever.

Another lottery player won a $40 million (US$27.5 million) Australian Powerball jackpot and repeatedly sent the Lottery to voicemail when they tried to alert her of the win, thinking they were scammers.

To top it off, the California Lottery had an exciting announcement: the world's largest lottery jackpot in history has been claimed by one lucky winner.

Kate......your videos are getting funnier each month. But they are always informative. The choice of lighting in your new studio is perfect. The advice to people tempted to reveal too much info after winning should be listened to by everyone in the US and abroad.
