you guys are stupid if you win that kind of money you can't just go out and spend like crazy don't buy a big house don't move don't buy a boat. If you do this you will be in way over your head and you could lose your money (it has hapend before) If i won a big ass jackpot like that well the first thing i would do is not tell anyone, then i would wait 2-3 weeks to claim it, and in the 2-3 weeks i wait to clain the money i would plan out what i want to do for the rest of my life and make sure everything is in order before any money is spend. Thats the way smart winners do it.

    Why can't I win anything in Mega Millions?! For the umpteenth time in a row, no winners on my side. Hopefully my Pick-6 Lotto won't suffer the same fate.

    By the way, there was a huge diaparency between numbers tonight, maybe another roll is in the works?

      It's like flipping a coin, I'm looking at a 50/50 chance at a roll here, but if it does, it may be $325,000,000!

              You appear to want to do nothing until you win, then start planning. Not a good concept in gambling, and not a good concept for in life. You should already be planning on what you would do when you win. Its called a dream for a reason.

              Start thinking, now, about what you will do with the money; atleast the initial steps. Search the internet. Find a Law Firm. Find a Financial Group. Investigate stock, bonds, real estate. Start thinking about where you plan on having the state transfer your money. If you don't begin to think for yourself, and plan for your future before the future becomes your present, then you will be one of those who do loose everything!

              Write out a document, listing your concerns, priorities, desires, contacts. List how you will go about contacting those on the list. Make a list of what your Will should look like when you're worth muilti-millions. Plan on a place to live, your current environment (work, home, etc.) will be useless; atleast for a year or two. A sister in another state, a cousin in another county, a best friend in another city, etc. I personally plan on a long trip, using satellite to communicate with my team.)  Make plans for security, for you and your immediately family members. Plan on access to cell phones not in your name (those in your name will be useless).

              Most importantly, while things are calm, make a list of who you think you can trust, and why you feel that way (when you win, every one will love you).

              Bottom line, eliminate as much emotion as possible now. You will be too excited and confused to think rationale when you win. If you have time to spend on the LP, you have time to plan your future.

              Oh, by the way, when you literally call people stupid, and you know nothing about them, you are providing an insight into your own mentality.

              Cheers

                Wow $12 million for tuesdays draw...............who cares Oogle

                Sheesh, only $12M. How would I survive. The biggest downside is that I would have to lay-off four or five chauffers, half a dozen maids, and cut down the kitchen staff to three cooks. Four of my houses would have to be put on the selling block. Life would be so hard!

                Cheers

                  Well, you all know I had the keys to that truck load of money!  Well someone hot wired that truck and stole it from me  LOL!  I did, however, have major concerns about how to handle all of that money.  I know nothing about investing.  I do invest in the Dollar General store and Wal-mart every payday LOL.  I think like Chewie.  PLAN NOW.  My attorney said we will cross that bridge when we get to it.  I want a plan, I need to know what to expect.  Is there any lottery sites designed for us "wishers" and "winners"?  Maybe one of us will win one day and we can tell the world "we started here".  Thanks Todd and you others for allowing me to vent.  but sometimes these four wall of this 2 bedroom trailer is gets to me!  Could be all these kids too.  Wait, who's kids are these?

                  When I win I will have Architect John Henry to create a luxury custom estate for me!

                    What happened to the guy who wanted to rebuild Detroit? Maybe even he knows it's the Big Easy (why does NO have that nickname?) that needs it the most.

                    Rebuilding New Orleans is another possibility, since they obviously need it more now.

                    The rest of the Gulf Coast needs help too.  The casinos on Mississippi's coast were all pretty much destroyed.  Don't forget St. Bernard Parish which is completely under water and some areas may never be inhabitable again thanks to a refinery leak.  Plaquemines parish is gone too.

                    Another thing that nees to be done is to upgrade the infrastructure here in Baton Rouge.  Many people from the New Orleans area came here and now we have more traffic and we couldn't handle the traffic we had before the migration of people in to Baton Rouge.  We need more cops now, more schools, more housing, and the list goes on.

                    On that note, it would be kind of cool if one of the many evacuees to Texas won a piece of it.  They really need help right now.  Alot of people need help right now and hopefully the person who wins it will put some of it to good use.

                    We don't have MegaMillions here in Louisiana, we just have Powerball, which is up to $92 million.  I'm in 2 pools at work right now for it, hopefully we'll get a piece of it.

                          They'll post the information on the NJ website Monday. They are pretty good about keeping every one informed. It is how I found the place where the last 2nd place ticket had been sold. Went there, it's very close to where I work, and bought tickets. Two months now. Haven't won a thing.

                          Cheers

                            And to think, people got PAID to land on the moon in the late 60s and early 70s.

                            No thanks, I haven't been to California yet (but hope to next month).
