The drawback of waiting for Mega Millions and Powerball rollovers is that you have zero chances of winning in the drawings that you do not participate.

100% correct.

          So after taxes and everything , each one of them will receive about $2 million. Hopefully most of them are old people like that recent mega millons couple from Red Bud. Unhappy

              LP mini quiz,

              S.E.P.T.A 

               stands for,

              #1 South Eastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority

              #2 Systimatically Eliminating Public Transportation Altogether.

                i think that was a insider joke, i had freinds that worked there,

              also 2 uncles that have long since passed, even before it was named that.

                I'm surprised there hasn't been a story about the winners in the LP news forum.

                  Maloney said the group buys tickets regularly, but says it's more of a floating pool.

                  It turns out, an IT technician who usual contributes to the pool did not this time.

                  "She didn't pay up recently, they sent her an email and she didn't respond so she was out on the winnings," SEPTA employee Mitch Schwed said.
