    Yes. That big of a jackpot and only one winner. What a turn off.

      That's your opinion, but definitely not shared by all.

      In fact, in a recent poll on Lottery Post, most people said they would want just one winning ticket held by one person.  And that poll was for a $1 billion jackpot.

        I agree, when I get around to playing the EuroMillions I would always want it to be 1 person that won.

        2016 Won/Lost

        EuroMillions / Spent: £22 / Won £0 / Total -£22

        UK Lotto / Spent: £4 / Won: £0 / Total: -£4

        2016 Total: -£24

        Jan: -£22 Feb: £0 ~ Mar: £0 ~ April: £0 ~ May: £0 ~ June: £0 ~ July: £2

         

        EuroMillions = £2 Line / Played: x11 [old price] 

        EuroMillions = £2.50 Line / Played: x0

        UK Lotto = £2 Line / Played x2

          Most players will choose 1 winner, themselves. Mention 1 590$ winner out in the general public and look at their reaction.

            I have no problem that it was one winner!  I wanted one winner (of course I wanted me).  But to OP as I up my lines as the jackpots grew I will now be back to only my very basic numbers for the next several draws.

              I think you would get the same reaction if you mentioned 1 winner or 5. For most people it doesn't matter how many other people won, the fact is, it wasn't them and now the jackpot is popped back to it's lowest point.

                I'm willing to bet this is probably the one point in your life you are a conservative. LOL

                  People will spend it big when the next jackpot is big again I know that to be true.  I could not imagine standing in line for hours to get a ticket like I saw people on the news this last saturday.  That is crazy.  Thank goodness we have lots of retailers her in oregon to buy from so no wait here.-weshar75

                      I will continue with the $19 a week I budgeted for lottery.

                      $7 for JC5

                      $2 for state 6/49 game

                      $4 for MM

                      $6 for Pb

                       

                      For some folks who dumped a lot of cash on the big PB jackpot this must feel like a hangover.

                        Ah hah ha..... I live in Canada so I couldn't buy any tickets, yet it still feels like a "hangover" for me ha ha ha... I was excited to see a "billion dollar" (even 

                        if it's a fake billion) jackpot even if I couldn't participate...
