If I ever win one like this I plan on telling the reporters I cash advanced and maxed out 3 credit cards and drained my 401k before the jackpot hit. Just to see if they print that

Too go one further, if I ever hit a mega million lottery for hundreds of millions (is that what they are called?) I will make it my mission to play MB until I hit one just so I can see what they print.

It seems as if people hit these things early on. I've never read about a person hitting a megajackpot after their fourth trip to the ATM.

I have a feeling the guy that hit it 2 or 3 times did. Then again, all the facts don't really matter since they got to report he hit it more than once.

LOL. Don't forget to tell them you are going to spend the winnings on hookers 'n' blow!

Math question: How is it that 85,000*14=1,275,000?

He also has become the focus of several articles about his unsavory, criminal past.

Oh right. Duh.

(In my defense, I've been playing lots of slots and video poker lately—and think of everything in terms of "x for 1.")

Now, he has tried to parlay his winnings by betting $100K on Tiger winning the Grand Slam @ 100 to 1. Anyone else think 100 to 1 is extremely low odds for something that basically has never happened before*?

BTW Tiger is 9 strokes back after the first round of the PGA.

Yeah, I know Bobby Jones won a Grand Slam in 1930, but that was the two Open tournaments and two amateur tournaments.
