Whoever it is is just $217 million richer. I sure hope its someone who been unemployed for months on end or some family whose just lost everything & they  trying to pay off their kids medical bills or something  of that nature.
I like hearing about winners like that..
Congrats whoever you are.DanceSad Cheers

Not $217M; it's been over 5 years since a jackpot was claimed via the "annuity" option. Drum Dupe Alert

Having millions of dollars in my financial accounts means more, consistent fun for me.Lovies

    The winner could be a foreign tourist on vacation. Good for him or her.

      More likely a government worker who will remain completely anonymous.

          Sounds like the public is wise to the states ability to profit by selling annuities to unsuspecting winners.

            blame insane people running us and our future children into lifetime debt to pay leechs of today demands.

             

            govt needs money so badly, so cheaply,  the fed reserve bank and insane morons who run it, , is now buying up all the us debt"t bills" with money printed out of thin air

            its like writing your self a check that, going don't worry self, u can pay me back later, its all monopoly money at this point,   

            ofc that means Govt does not need to offer any rates at all of return for T bills

            that's what annuitie is, they just buy a special T bill, and govt pays u

             

            will if rates are rock bottom thx to govt buying there own debt. there no need to have high rates to intrest more people to buy our debt. sense we don't need anyone 2, "writes self a check"

              there no real high return what so ever form stupid annuitie in today crazy Govt lastest idea of how to fix our spending issue.

            just put it on a unlimited CC and let kids pay  for it all what we spend today, who cares about future?  they sure as hell Don't give a

            ofc they give it lip service  of there not doing any thing wrong what so ever,      just like of a hooker talking 2  cop ,ofc officer i would Never sell my self, am just dressed this way for a party officer i swear!

             ofc there all drug addicts who without the money goes into withdrawl, and god forbid the govt goes into money withdrawl, there far worst then hookers on drugs.

            , what a group of aholes we got up in DC.

            if the govt never buyed its own debt"t bills" will i do think more "suckers" would of taken the annuitite  sense govt would of Had to offer high rate to get buyers of running joke that is us debt

            ,but as of right now, any muti millioner invester would know T bills are a freaking Joke for returns

            your better off using free market as  they don't play with monopoly money as much as Govt does to effect rates of return.

             lip service

            annuitite has the whole"invest whole amount pre tax, going for it, but even that cant make up for its insane  low return rates atm of the t bills

             

            just better off in divind and other type's of higher returns, any  Legal/money team worth there salt, tells the winners don't take the annuitite ,we can make so much more buying this and that etc to invest

                    Congratulations to this Powerball Jackpot winner in Virginia. I did put this one in my current event. Ouch! I didn't know that both Mega Millions and Powerball sold their jackpot winning ticket on back to back days.

                      The Jackpot was won by a Federal Government employee. The gentleman and his wife who is also employed by the Pentagon have elected to take the cash payout of 136 million before the tax man takes his huge cut.
