Excellent prize for Mr. Damon Graham and little by little he was building his victory, consistently and without pressure, I hope to achieve a quarter of what he achieved to win some day in poker hehe, his experience can serve as a motivation for us That we hope to win someday

Many congratulations to this man on winning this monster prize. He must be very knowledgble on football to risk the $3,000 entry fee but his risk has well and truly paid off

Of course it was a very risky decision to spend $ 3000, but I am very glad that miracles happen and that person got a big win ... now he probably will find it more interesting job than he has now ... or just going to live on this money not working

i don't know what to say, oh wait i do- kinda stupid investment which turned out to be the best investment he ever made. surely now lots of people will chase his feat and pour their savings into this bottomless bucket hoping to become rich... ah well it's their money, why do i have to care...

Not a bad return on investment... $3000 to win $900,000. I would be pretty happy with that but it is still a huge amount to place on a bet in the firs instanc. I can't perceive of a day existing where I would be placing a bet that large, unless of course I win it in a satellite that cost somewhere around not a great deal. Well done him!

And now he is gonna pay a truckload of taxes which makes him the unlukiest lucky bastard of the Starbucks Universe of course.
BTW 3k is not that big of a deal to pay, and Starbucks employees have decent employer contributions/benefits so the part in the article where they wondered how he could afford both entry fees does not make much sense 2 me...
