    I agree.  That's the first thing that popped in my head when I saw the list.  The same person may also have some 4/5 and 3/5 matches too.

      Yup, this person hit the Finish Line Food Store running at full speed.  Good for them.

      When buying a couple of tickets for Tuesday's MM, I made out a playslip but apparently there was a problem with the playslip feeder on the machine so the clerk typed in my numbers.

      When he handed me the ticket, I saw that he had put in one of the numbers wrong, and he was bummed because he knew he might have to buy that ticket to balance the books, so I offered to buy it along with a new correct ticket.  They both had the same mega ball.

      So I walked out of there thinking about what it would be like to hit the jackpot and 4/5 +Mega Ball, or possibly 4/5 twice.

      No dice, but as with all lotto-related things, it was fun to dream for a bit.

        Yeah, he probably switched the mega numbers and good thing he did cause he won 2 prizes.

          When I read this I thought, wow that address sounds familiar,

          Yep, it's across the street from Los Alimitos racetrack, hence the Finish line name. LOL

              LOL

              Don't know what the caller's name is but how bout,

              "My wife knows everything, the wife does'nt know"

              "The wife does'nt know, My wife knows everything"

              back and forth several times as the horses battled for the finish.

               

              And did the Finish appreciate it ?

              I wonder if they even knew about ! LMAO

                  Interesting.  I didn't know that.  I used golf at the Navy course in Cypress and would take Katella past the racetrack to Valley View.  There's still a very small patch of farmland next to the golf course and former navy base.

                    The California Lottery website now has a story on this lucky winner.  It was the same person, and he used anniversaries, birthdays, and lucky numbers.  He was playing these numbers for 6 years.

                      WOW!! Check out what this guy did, he wins 50 mill and then -- " Pel says he purchased the ticket early last week but waited until Christmas Eve to claim his ticket since he had the day off of work.
