        Well, that's three winners in southern Michigan now, don't anyone else in this state will win for awhile and of course if someone does it'll probably be again in that part of the state. I'd say that it was interesting on how each location is almost off the same interstate but I guess not too surprising since each one is in a highly populated area with one in the south west part of Michigan (Grand Rapids area) and the other two are in the southeast/Detroit area of the state which I know makes up a large portion of the state's population. It'd just be nice if we could get a winner a bit further north, like my area, with me winning it. Big Smile I'm kind of bored so I'm going to look up some Michigan MM winners and see if any of them weren't from the southern part of the Lower Peninsula.

        I see from MM's site that last month's 15M winner from Ohio came forward and took the annuity.. Good for him since now he can pay for is education.

        EDIT: Just noticed with playing with Google Maps that Washington is right next to Shelby Township which is where where one of the winning tickets of the former record $363M Big Game jackpot from 2000 was won, actually it might be better to just call it the same area since both share the same main road apparently. They're only about three miles apart.

        You can't predict random.

          There is a stretch of road in Wisconsin where something like 8 or 10 PB winners have purchased their tickets, this isn't something that is rare, really.

              I bought 5 QPs at a gas station when I was in Shelby Township on Friday; not because I knew the area is lucky, but because I was hoping to get lucky. It doesn't really matter where we buy QPs when we only matched one or two numbers and no bonus number on $5 worth of tickets. There are thousands of lottery terminals selling MM tickets all over the country and I have no idea how anyone could determine which one of those terminals will sell the winning ticket and at what time.

              On Friday I was in the right area but wasn't in the right place at the right time.

                Where did I say anything about determining which terminal will sell a winner? I was just bringing it up the fact that the majority of big winners are in the southern part of the state, especially the Detroit and surrounding area, for the obvious reason that it's also the most populated. It has nothing to do with anything but the reason being that a lot more tickets are bought there due to the higher population and traffic.. I also just found it a bit interesting that the same small area is where one of the two tickets was bought for a former record breaking jackpot.

                  Most of the wins were from state lotteries, not Powerball though yeah, that store has had a couple Powerball winners though. My post was simply an observation.

                    "Where did I say anything about determining which terminal will sell a winner?"

                    I said I have no idea how anybody could choose which terminal would print out the jackpot winner, but never said it was your idea.

                    "I also just found it a bit interesting that the same small area is where one of the two tickets was bought for a former record breaking jackpot."

                    And I thought it was coincidence that I bought 5 QPs in the same area, probably less than 2 miles from the terminal that printed out the jackpot winner on the same day.

                      Actually DC81, it would be nice if it hit somewhere halfway in between on that same stretch of road.  And since there seems to be a birthday trend with MM this year, my birthday has yet to come up this year.......
