After taxes in NY, it now stands at $216,673,320 for one time cash, or $330,900,000 over 30 years.  That amount in annuity is $11,030,000 average per year / $919,166 per month / $30,638 per day.  Shocked

    i will buy some tickets but nothing crazy.  remember that basketball player who bought 10,000 tickets last Mega millions drawing, he didnt win.  just reminder to people who think spending more money equals winning.

        I agree completely. Regardless of the jackpot amount, I always get only 1 set of QP numbers. I've also been in several office pools with 100 or more sets of tickets and the most that was ever won back was less than 10% of money invested. At about 175 million combinations of numbers, buying 10,000 sets of numbers covers less than 1/10th of 1% of the numbers.

            I always wondered about that clown. How much did he recover? Probably under $200.

                I didn't know that the Powerball Jackpot continues to rise. I wonder why Powerball raise their jackpot?

                Everyone, there's a poll question I posted on Jackpot Games for the upcoming Powerball draw and on. Lets see who's right on this topic.

                  Who's talking about sarcasm. What?

                  This is very serious business.  Disapprove

                      This time i hope one winner is declared. in this the year of "RECORD JACKPOTS" there needs to be one person that goes into the record books. Oh, that would be me........lol

                      This is enough dough to help four or five generations comfortably.  I have my wealth management team in my sights. They dont know they have calls coming to estblish trust and estate plans......

                            I'm a skeptic by nature...I'd bet the pot is actually closer to 600 mil if not more
