Mega Millions: $131 million lottery jackpot awaits Mega Millions hopefuls
The jackpot in the multi-state Mega Millions lottery grew to $131 million today, when no tickets sold for Tuesday's $111 million drawing drawing matched all five numbers plus the Mega Ball number.
The next drawing is Friday.
There were five second-prize winners from Tuesday night's drawing: 1 from Illinois, 1 from Massachusetts, 1 from Michigan, and 2 from New Jersey. Each ticket matched all five lotto numbers but not the Mega Ball number to win $250,000.
Also, 40 players matched four of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball number. Those tickets are each worth $10,000.
The winning numbers from Tuesday's drawing were: 19, 32, 42, 49, and 56. The Mega Ball number was 29.
The Texas Megaplier was 3.

I'm gonna go on the record right now- If I win this jackpot I'm donating several million of it to the Red Cross / Katrina relief.
I feel so bad for the poor people there. I do not need the money as bad as they need basic necessities.
Godspeed to the rescuers and God bless the survivors.

I'm not waiting until I win a lottery jackpot to contribute something because I've been playing the lotteries for over 20 years and haven't won a jackpot yet.

I think that anyone who reads this post should contribute something. A lot of little amounts can add up to have a big impact on the suffering in hurricane ravaged states.

I will also pledge to make a large donation if I win. As for small donations, at this time it will have to be very small. I have to donate to my rent, my credit card, etc. But the area affected is in my thoughts.

I'm contributing nothing. So sad, too bad.
The damn govt liberal and conservative wackos you all elected, especially these folks now in trouble, need to fix this mess with my money I pay in taxes and insurance.
Get ready for major price increases in everything. You will be contributing soon enough in higher premiums and income taxes.
This country has got to get rid of all these career idiots in suits. Quit voting for the incumbents and get real leadership by not making elected offices a career. Just a contribution to your nation.
That's my opinion, you all deal with it in your pea brain heads.
PS- I hate New Orleans and glad it's gone finally. Mississippi is one pathetic state too. Now that you see how corrupt this govt is, time to make some changes in November.
If I win, I'll run a campaign for President.
Have fun with these impossible games!

Excuse me, Mr. Drywall, but California elected an outsider for governor -- and quite a good one -- and everyone's busy trying to knock him down a peg every chance they get.
Don't you understand that whoever is elected is going to be blamed for everything no matter what?
Meanwhile if your life gets destroyed because you're living on a fault-line in California, I'm sure you're going to be the first one in line for a government handout from those "wackos".
I think you're the pea-brain, it sounds like you're hitting the bottle tonight.

It is always easier to complain and be bitter; that way your only difficult decision is about what can I complain about tonight. It's always easier to be a critic than a creater. That's why critics accomplish little, and when they accomplish something, its for selfish reasons.

I only trust myself - and that's a questionable choice

I am all for helping people in crisis. In fact, I contribute 28% of my pay each week to the government so they can do just that on my behalf. I can't see why I should give more on top of that, especially in these days of extremely high housing and gas prices when I need every dollar to prevent my own crisis. If the government chooses to send my money to Iraq and Israel instead of being ready to help those in serious need in the US, I guess the victims will have to lash out against the government. But I gave at the office.
I just read in the paper that ExxonMobil, which made a profit of $25.3 billion last year, is giving a whopping $2 million to hurricane relief. When I win the jackpot, I'll calculate what percentage $2 million is of $25.3 billion and give the same percentage. Oh wait, the $25.3 billion is just their profits, not their total income, so I'll have to calculate what percentage $2 million is of their total income, since the jackpot would be my total income.

I thank god that I did not move down there. Those people had advance warning why did they not pack up what they could and head inland? They knew it was a cat4-5 storm and that they lived in a BOWL. Yes I will help by donating my change jar but certainly not to the Red Cross(remember 9/11). I do know that if god should look on me and allow me to win the game I could donate more, but first I have to buy some gas at $3.09 a gallon to get to the headquarters to collect my money(may take a few days to get the money to fill up, so I will collect about a week after the win!). My prayers are with thos that were dimwitted enough to stay behind.

I've only been playing $2. I'll be increasing my bets soon if it continues to roll.
