DANG :mad: I never play the lottery but when I saw it was $250 mill and it was my birthday I said what the heck it will make a great story, so why not buy a quick pick. So your saying I did not win ( haven't checked my ticket yet :D )

It is the chance of immense wealth that draws the cusomers. For $1 million dollars I never play. But I did spend $10 when the pot was over $100 million. (That corresponds to $.10 for tickets in a $1 million lottery.

How about this guy?

Man, 92, Hits Second Vegas Jackpot

LAS VEGAS -- What's better than winning a multi-million dollar jackpot? For one Las Vegas man, winning it twice.

Elmer Sherwin hit the Megabucks jackpot in 1989 and did it again recently.

Sherwin won more than $21.1 million this time, at the Cannery Hotel and Casino. In 1989, he won more than $4.6 million at a Megabucks machine at The Mirage.

Sherwin is the first person in the 19-year history of the progressive slot machine system to strike it rich twice.

Sherwin is 92 and said he's "always been lucky." He's a good saver, too -- he recently bought a new car from his 1989 winnings.
