Okay, Shane.  I didn't see it that way because of of your reference to "stein" and "berg."  Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Ruppert Murdoch, Donald Trump, J.P. Getty, Bush, Kennedy, Gore, Kerry/Heinz, Rockefeller, Oprah, Sam Walton's kids, the Hiltons, Lawrence Ellison...not a Stein or a Berg in any of them!! 

When I think of Ruben, I think of a sandwich.

    At this point, I do not know that this is what happened, but something caused him to have a winning ticket even though none of the numbers matched. That is why I am checking to see if anyone on-this site has any useful experiences or information.

    Sorry I misunderstood you the first time.  There might be a glitch in the system, but if his numbers didn't match the draw, then he didn't win. I guess you are saying that the terminals are calling his ticket "a winner" after the fact.  Very strange.  Maybe it's because the ticket date is out of range, but I have no clue how it works. You do bring up a very interesting conspiracy theory, but I've never heard of this happening to anyone.  I check all my numbers online at Lottery Post and the State site. Since I read the paper, I also glance at the list of winning numbers. So I never would have a ticket scanned before I already know if I've won something. Anyway, if I won a large prize I wouldn't validate it at a store.

    Hope you get a more definitive answer that will help resolve this mystery.   Good luck.

      You are perfectly right.....I forgot my options were so broad....I definitely like the sound of "Gates"I Agree! Unfortunately MM does not get that high....I'd settle for 1/200th of a Gates.

        I think it's all about luck in terms of who wins in PB and/or MM.

          Luck and I are not good bedfellows.........That is why I will have to prove it can be done with hard work and a visionary scheme.

          Before the end of the year...we'll see if this is all just smoke!

          I am now routinely hitting 3 of 5.....a couple 4 of 5's...but those have not yet become routine. I am fine tuning my scheme. Currently just sitting in the middle of the pack...stalking the leaders....waiting for that x-tra gear to kick in and get me infront. No luck will be involved here.....just plain hard work with limited resources.

          If I was pooling funds......I know for a fact I would have hit 5 of 5 twice in the last month. But since there is no gurantee when things will align, you don't take those kind of chances with your hard earned money.

          My policy is...pay bills first....save some.......then the rest is fair game, and that is where we find MM....as fair game(ofcourse not literally "fair game"...you know I have conspiracy running all through my head...that makes me a fool).....so I am playing with fools money.

           

          Ps...Is it possible to fool the system by placing your bets within that three hour window?Agree with stupid

            No one is winning big prizes in WA state. You know we are on the west coast. Only thing we have managed to produce so far are idiot law makers and a corrupt gaming commision.

              Unfortunately I can't just quote you  - sorry to drag the slew of other quotes.

              I'd forget about any current lottery if you want 1/200 of that Gates is worth. That would be 250 million.

              The only game that has come close after tax is Euromillions at 219 million. Megamillions has been lucky if it can break a 100 million cash amount and Powerball has a very low (44.5%) cash payout. Better shoot for a much lower percent of Gate's fortune.
