I have a gut feeling it would be a shared jackpot.

    What would $120.1M cash look like?

    “……
    And if $120.1 million is just too hard to imagine, here are some fun facts about what $120.1 million looks like.  Measured in one-hundred-dollar bills, $120.1 million:

     Weighs 2,648 pounds. It would take 1.3 one-ton trucks to carry all the cash.
     Would line up, end to end, for 113.7 miles, crossing the US almost .04 times.
     Would stack all the way down to the deepest ocean depth
    .01 times. The Challenger Deep is 7 miles deep; a stack of 120.1 million one-hundred-dollar bills is .09 miles high.
     Would fill up 16.7 boxes of copier paper
    …”


    (Bold numbers are recalculated proportionally (also, $1:$100) from Powerball Press Release dated May 25, 2005

    http://www.powerball.com/content/pressreleases/show_release.asp?release_id=2131)
     

    Good luck to all members!

    Doesn't matter:

    No one is going to see $120 Million in CASH.

    That would be the estimated cash option before taxes.....

    so, after Federal and state( if applicable) taxes , more like $80 million or so...

    I already know how to measure $80 Million :

    It would fit into my bank account(s) very nicely !!    Hurray!

     

    Good Luck,

     DD

    Divided by 4=$20million or so!  At least the winners will include 2 LP membersParty

                        This post and it' contributing members comments are delighting. Its good to see so many ambitious (sp?) players! I hope it IS a LP member that claims the winning ticket for the jackpot. May we each reap some rewards from the jackpot this time!

                          You're going to have to wait at least 2 months or so in that case. I'm calling for 3 more rolls to 387 before I take it with a single ticket. That will be just enough to reclaim the US record from Megamillions.

                          I'd hold out for 437, but the chances of 5 rolls are only about 1%, and that's just too improbable.

                              You're all wrong.  I will be purchasing the winning ticket later today.  And as it does not come out of my jackpot I hope you all get 5 mumbers.
