One person hit tonight after 2 months of rollovers.  The jackpot was $36 million.

 

The 6 winning numbers are:

24-41-42-46-47-52

 

I wonder what "system" the lucky winner used.  LOL

    There's a 70% chance they bought some quick picks.  I guess you can call that a system since so many winners say they just stop at a lottery retailer and asked for some QP tickets for the next drawings.

    I have a system that I've developed and sometime I compare its results to those of lines picked by the LP quick pick generator and the results are similar but I can explain the results of my system better.

      Everyone has a system except me.  I just bumble along and try to pick winners out of thin air.  Dumb but fun.  However, as Jimmy Buffett says everyone has a cousin in Miami -- I do does that count?

      You are correct about quick picks.  In Florida all major jackpot games are won by QP's between 50 to 65% of the time.  I would take a slow pick if I could win.

        I had a feeling it would be a Quick Pick.  Yes, just checked and one winner in Miami got all 6 numbers.   Miami seems to get a disproportionate number of winners, although that's been debated. 

        "Everyone has a system except me."

        I don't.  I was being sarcastic (but in a loving, playful way!)  Lately, my only system is getting down on my knees and crying "Please, please, just once!" 

        I need to stop adding tickets.  Some nights I just pick numbers out of the blue and let the little green pencil guide my hand.  Sometimes there are yellow pencils mixed in with the green pencils and I'm not sure which one to use.

          "Miami seems to get a disproportionate number of winners, although that's been debated. "

          Be careful.  I have said the same thing before and I was almost crucified on LP from posters who seemed to get upset with me for saying so.  I even contacted the lottery about it.  Their explanation was that there are more people playing in Miami than in other locations.  Another LP poster offered a thought that it might be because Miami is such a tourist location and so they have people coming through all of the time and play then.

          But, I live in Tallahassee and if you count the number of winners in Tallahassee versus the rest of the state, there is no comparison at all.  There seems to be some type of conspiracy against Tallahassee players.  I don't know if it is because we are here with the Lottery headquarters, but something seems really strange.  Several Tallahassee players have remarked of the same thing so it just makes you think.

            I agree about Miami....having more winners, but would argue that Orlando gets more tourist visitors.............Disney....

              Maybe players in Miami buy a disproportionate number of tickets which mean they probably have a disproportionate amount of losers too.  Kinda like Mark Twain once said "the harder/more I work the luckier I get".

                  If you count Disney World & Universal Studios, Orlando definitely gets more tourism than Miami by a very large percentage.

                    Yeah but the tourist are in two very different demographics.

                    You can't predict random.

                      Oh, I agree with you on that point.  I was responding to the comment that Orlando doesn't have more tourism.  I believe Disney World is one of the top tourist attractions in the world.  I don't have children, but when I vacationed in Disney World (before I moved to Florida) I never thought of buying a Lotto ticket.   

                      Miami markets the lottery very aggressively too.

                        Exactly. People complain that too many of the winners are in Miami (or Chicago, or NYC, or wherever), but it's a safe bet that those population centers also have far more losers than other places.
