Maybe he watched it live, they don't draw in order.

Someone won 1,000,000 here in Wisconsin about 20 min from where I work.

One of the two jackpot tickets was sold in Missouri. I live in Missouri. Damn, I should have bought a ticket.

Read an article this morning that said they were selling tickets at a rate of 110,000 every minute yesterday.

\$2 a ticket X 110,000 = \$220,000
\$220,000 X 60 minutes in a hour = \$13,200,000
\$13,200,000 X 24 hours = \$316,800,000 = One day of ticket sales

Fun fact.

That would only be the case if he actually picked the numbers himself and did not do a quickpick and even that i dont think the actual computer puts them out of order on the ticket anyway

Yeah, and not playing before it'd be easy to mix up

"Also the numbers are not in the same order as they are listed, does this matter?"

Thats the line that makes this skeptical... The way the numbers print and the way the drawing happens i have never seen the numbers out of order. They always ascend such as the jackpot 5,16,22,23,29. The only number that does not is the actual powerball number.

I am pretty sure its impossible to have all the numbers for the jackpot out of order based on how they pick you dont ever see a larger number before a smaller one.

I think its even funnier that about 9 million people won something, only two won the Jackpot

If you have all the numbers except for the Powerball I'm pretty sure the prize is a million dollars. Did you buy multiple tickets? Are all the numbers on the same line?

Well, I won, but only \$4. Still, recouping some loss is better than nothing.^_^

Lol,I hope you're not trolling. If you have all the numbers and not the powerball it's like a couple hundred grand. It should tell you on back. Doesn't matter the order as long as you have them all. Only specific is the powerball.

Edit: Actually it is trash. Disregard everything written above and send it to me. I'll pm you my address, ill dispose of it, lol.

So I've never played before and I need help understanding. I have all the numbers that were announced except for the Powerball number... did I win anything or is my ticket trash now? Also the numbers are not in the same order as they are listed, does this matter?

"-Dying by having a vending machine fall on you (6 times more likely)"

Haha, this kinda reminds me of that bit in the movie "Maximum Overdrive", where the vending machine shot the baseball coach with a soda can right in the nuts, before taking another to the head

Yeah, and guess what else you can say?

Shit!

You know what you can't say?
