    Congrats rjoh. I hit 5 of 6 then 4 of 6 in 2012 on my state classic lotto. Do you still play those winning numbers?

    No, I've have never intentionally played a combination more than once.  I have tracked all of Ohio's pick6 games(6/40, 6/44, 6/47, Super Lotto 6/49+1  and Classic Lotto) since I started playing years ago and as far as I know, no winning combination of six has ever repeated.

            This could be bad for me. I remember one day a while back this guy asked for some change. He didn't try any of the tired stories, just asked. Our bank had stopped taking coins so I had a good bit in my center console. I think he got more change then than he got all week. Even if he used it for beer, that's exactly what I had planned for it.

            It probably also means I'd spend more time sitting on benches getting stuck with a crazy person talking about who knows what, because I feel like walking away would be rude.

            Man... I think I'd require a babysitter.

              If you have a problem with your lottery windfall.  I will be taking donations to ease your pain..

              What you should do is purchase a customized bench.  You know one with your name on it, and when they sit on it you just say "politely" " Do you see your name on this bench? Thats right, thats my name.  Go sit over there please."

                Probably nothing, famous or not, rich or poor, I'd rather just treat everyone the same.

                Bob and Elizabeth Dole once came into the clinic I worked at over in the old WRAMC. While I thought it was really cool that they were there, I did not go out of my way to talk with them, much like any other visitor or patient that was not directly under my care.

                    My $200k win on Powerball five years ago (only $150k after taxes), is pretty much spent.

                    In the scheme of things, compared to the thousands of jackpot winners, this was merely a few drops in the lottery bucket.

                    Still a very nice surprise if your not expecting it.   Yes Nod

                    I Agree!

                      Bob Dole hit the lottery? I wonder if he also used those DOD supercomputers up in Chayenne Mountain, or did you mean

                      he hit the lottery by being a spokesperson for erectile dysfunction?
