The people who actually win it usually play  around 5 quick picks, and they play it on a whim.  There was someone from Indiana in February 2003 who won the jackpot picking his own numbers, but that's rare.

Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings.  They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed.  And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.

If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!

    The cardboard check looks great!

    I truly hope that  sooner or later your visualiztion indeed becomes a reality.

     

    Thanks. I am also quite partial to this one as well.

     

     

    Shrunk down of course. I will be getting the big version framed on my wall as inspiration, and as a visualizing aid. Although I doubt the jackpot will actually be that amount on Jan 7th. but it would very strange if it was. But I had to put something down! I whipped it up in paint for fun.

      Sirbrad- Congrats on the $100.00 pay out! I did notice on your ticket date it said year 2404.  May want to change it to 2006 for a positive affect. Best wishes for your next game payout.

        LOL! It actually says 2006, it was slightly distorted from shrinking it down. The pic is huge! That way I can see it every morning as soon as I wake up. I made sure it will be an actual powerball date. Thanks though, as long as I get something back I will be happy, especially if I get back more than I spend. I am almost afraid now to deviate from QPs!

              I seem to read that a lot rundown. It seems people who just go into the store to buy some milk or something and then they decide to buy a few tickets on a whim. end up being the ones who win the big jackpots. lol.

                I have bought "whim tickets" many times, and have actually gotten good results usually, but no jackpots. I believe it is time I change this trend, and win via using a system, and be rewarded for studying the lottery for years. This would make it more justifiable, and provide more hope to lottery 'players' as opposed to just the occasional 'gambler.'
