It is won on a Wednesday......
I noticed that most of the times a jackpot is shared is on a Saturday. The two winners from Louisiana and Missouri won it on a Saturday. So did the winners from South Dakota and Indiana. Even the unclaimed ticket from Indiana from September and Edward Varley was from a Saturday drawing. When the Powerball hit 300 million on August 25, 2001, it was shared by 4 winners, also on a Saturday. This suggests that more people play on Saturday since everyone has to work on Wednesday. In my opinion, if I ever won the powerball, the jackpot would be less likely to split if I won it on a Wednesday.
Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings. They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed. And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.
If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!
