First thing, hi this is my first post, and I hope I'm posting this in the right sub-forum, and that this is worthy of a new thread, etc.
Anyway, there were three 2nd prize ($250,000) winners in NY in the last MegaMillions drawing (2/22/11). I checked the New York Lottery's information to see where these three winners were bought and was amazed to see that ALL THREE were bought in the same store. This makes me think that someone picked the numbers themselves and had 3 sets of winners on one ticket. Logical or no? If that's the case, has anyone heard anything about this? I have seen nothing about this anywhere. Isn't it amazing?
<snip> how lucky can some people be. I have tried to do something like this occasionally in the past, making the first five numbers of two lines identical to try to win $250,000 times 2. But THREE??? I know it's only been 2 days since the drawing, but is there any information about this out there?
