Todd, this is a great story. That's the 6th straight winner under 100 million and 5th straight winner under 50 million. I think MM has to up the number of MBs to 52 or the string will continue.

The people that won those "small jackpots" are probably regular players that understand if you don't pay to play you don't win.  20-50 million jackpots if taken lump-sum translate after taxes into roughly  13 million and 33 million respectively. You can try to shelter your names from scrutiny but you can't hide from the tax-man, he will get his cut.  Nevertheless, these "small jackpots" are a beautiful addition to anybodys bank accounts or investments that could generate copious amounts of income,  enough to retire on and keep on paying to play. Good Luck!
