Man Buys 6 Lottery Tickets Each Worth $1,000,000.00

A Glendale, Ariz., man who played the same numbers on six Powerball tickets didn't win the big jackpot but nabbed a $1 million second-place prize for each ticket for a total of $6 million, Arizona Lottery officials said this week.

The winner, who elected to remain anonymous, claimed the prizes in three visits to the lottery's Phoenix office, according to a lottery statement.

The win came in the April 25 Powerball drawing.

The winning numbers were 4-25-29-34-43, with Powerball 29. The Glendale man won the second-place prize by matching all five numbers but not the Powerball. Azcentral.com reports that the tickets were bought at a QuikTrip store.

There was one winning ticket in that April 25 drawing -- the $172.7 million prize went to a bunch of Philadelphia transit workers known as the SEPTA 48.

Why can't this happen to me? Oh, that's right. I don't play ;)

Means he should just hand over about 3 of the tickets to taxes. Taxing winnings was always fucked up to me.

I don't play the lottery but often think what if I won, but then that thought goes right out of my head as I buy cigarettes instead.

Re: Man Buys 6 Lottery Tickets Each Worth $1,000,000.00

The one time I did play, when it was a record jackpot here, I screwed up and played the same six numbers, but, a different powerball. I meant to let the system choose one.

It was a dollar my niece found and a dollar a guy gave me for buying his grandson a popsicle. The winner was a person who bought the ticket an hour before the system closed down.

The operator of the system got annoyed with me because I didn't know I had to fill out a card, which I had to do two or three times. I think he was from India and I didn't know what he was saying.

When I worked for lawyers, they used to buy several tickets and never won. I told them to give me what they were spending on tickets every week and I'd be happy with an extra few hundred :)

There are no taxes on winnings in Canada. I still don't play.
