Can anyone tell me if all those winners in PB were QP or own #'s?

Hello Folks, 

I am quite surprised that 3 people hit the $1.5 Billion jackpot and 81 $1 million dollar winners.. My question is this where these winners Quick Picks or using own numbers?  Can anyone help figure that one out and thanks..

    The winning ticket in Florida won't show as QP or self-pick until it's claimed (it's not been claimed yet.)

    I did happen to see that a winning PB ticket sold in Florida in May of 2013 expired unclaimed. D'oh!Thud

      Well, we all know the ticket in Tennessee was a QP.

        From the story in the Lottery News Forum:

         

        "The winning ticket was played with numbers that the couple has been using for the past 30 years, although not regularly."

            So, they've been together since she was 40 and he 25.  It definitely is cougar-ville down there. Jester

              The amazing part about the Fla couple's win, was that she bought only 2 tickets. One was with the winning numbers and one QP.

              Imagine how all the people that spent big bucks on tickets felt after learning that one winner spent $8 and another spent $3 (with power play)
