Close but did not win
Yes. Yes I did.
Unfortunately though, I got drunk and blew all my money on Mgopoints.
I had 3 numbers. I won $11 that I need to split with 23 people. :(
My ticket plus my brother's ticket ombined for jackpot. That means something, right?
I was in a pool of 20 people from work. We bought 200 tickets. So I get .55 cents for my $10 bucks. Sweet!
Reminds me of my old Pets.com stock.
...that we bought in the office pool at work, I am sad to report that myself and 11 other people will be reporting to work on Monday morning as usual.
I guess I should rescind the retirement paperwork that I filled out this morning...
With scissors a little elmers glue, you could turn that into a winning ticket in no time.
I did not.
Yes I have the winner, but I someone to pay on transfer fees and the taxes to me. If you sent $495.49 to my Swiss bank account, I will give you in the $2 millions to the thanking. Please hurries on your reply.

Throw in some viagra and a penile enhancer and it's all yours Doc!
...but didn't play...waiting a few weeks until the pot really grows!
My wife heard that the expert math people said there must be a winner because all possible number combinations were exhausted with the high sales. I find that hard to believe considering random number generators will produce the same series of numbers from time to time, but who knows. They're the experts, not me.
There are what 175,000,000 possibilities. They sold 600,000,000 to 700,000,000 million tickets for this drawing. Odds are there were a few numbers that were skipped, but the vast vast majority were picked.
If there wasn't a chance of spilt winnings and you had $175,000,000 you could of guaranteed yourself a win and profit. You just needed a lot of time.
Well, seeing as half of the people who play the lottery use the numbers, 4 8 15 16 23 42, I'd say every one still has a good chance.
Especially if you live in Baltimore County Maryland.
Omar probably won.
"Best be givin' that ticket to Omar."
"All in the game, yo."
model the actual behavior of people picking the numbers?
A lot of people use birthdays, which would mean numbers >31 would be underselected. And I have a feeling a lot of people wouldn't choose certain combinations, like six numbers in a row, because "they aren't random" and would never happen. (Of course there might also be people who had thought that and specifically picked one of those combinations....)
My $10,000 donation to HTTV will have to wait...
I left my ticket at work. Time to play the waiting game.
I bought a $5 easy, and all I could remember was that two of the lines started with 02. I saw this post, freaked out a little, and had to run and get my ticket. Now I'm just a sad guy in need of a change of underpants.
None of my five tickets even had a 2 in them. Is there some way I can get a refund ? ? ?
It's sorta like I ran a 60 meter dash, but fell on my face after 10 meters. Twice.
He tweeted that he won the jackpot. Too bad i was loxtoking forward to him playing next yeat.
One of them had a 2 in it. That's about it...I still have to work Monday, damnit.
so by my calculations thats at leat a MILLION..right?
If they're on the same line, you actually win $3 for that, so go turn it in.
I got both 23 right. I spent $7 I won $3.
That makes you a donor state.
My office pool had 33 people in it and we just won $12!!!! Oh yeah we are so back to work tmr!
As also did not buy. Not sure what the buzz for 650 million dollars is for. Whats the difference if its 200 million or 500 million. The megamillions always gets to a couple hundred million. Since everyone was buying these I got a cash for life at the gas station for $5 bucks hoping to get 2 grand a week for life. Actually ended up winning 10 bucks. Although we didnt win, we all got the day dreaming time thinking about what life would be like if we won. I'm sure everybody spends a good amount of time each week day dreaming about the lottery.
Today on 97.1 in the morning they were asking would you rather win the 500 million or have Brandon Inge's career (34 million, playing in the mlb etc but career not so fan favorite as of now). Both guys on the show picked having INge's career.
Oh cool, I won.
DNP - Coach's Decision.
I received the gift of total consciousness from the Dali Lama, so I got that going for me....which is nice.
3 people won: one from Illinois, one from Kansas, and one from Maryland.
-None of these people are me.
So much for plan A; time to execute plan B
I hit three numbers and the mega ball for $150. Missed the fourth number and $10K by one digit. Spent $10.
I won the $150 once, and I figure it covers all the other tickets I've bought or will buy. So it paid for itself.
