Yes, if and when I win, I will be like Brad Duke...I'll come forward and claim it myself.  Well, I might decline to appear on the morning talk shows, but even if I subsequently decided to appear on them, I would view it as being no different than Bill Gates or Warren Buffett making a public appearance...everybody knows that they are loaded with cash...and everybody knows that they aren't going to get a "personal" loan from them either.  Same thing would apply with me.  But I am happy for all winners...both anonymous and known...and I look forward to managing and investing the $158,645,259 pre-tax cash value jackpot.  I'll personally fuel a stock market boom and economic development in select areas.

Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

        Thanks for the advice spy and JAG.

        I like to pick my own numbers so I never play QPs and I live in mid-Ohio about seventy miles south of that Cleveland Triangle so I won't be buying any tickets there either.  Last month there was a MM 5+0 winner at the Mansfield Meijer store so there's a winners triangle close by.  Good luck if you play, I'm still just dreaming.

          Well I believe all we need is two more rolls to make it to $400 million.  Sales have been actually quite good for the amount the jackpot is at.  I am assuming they will be selling about $100 million in tickets for tonight's drawing.  The next jackpot should be around $330 million and if it rolls again on Tuesday over $400 million for the first time.  It is a long shot but could happen.  These dollars are a fun investment to dream about.  Hopefully one of our dreams will come true!

              two other typical states to win mega millions. My guess is it boils down to those three for the big win. Ohio, Texas or IL.   Hey, the records speak for themselves.

                  We all stand a better chance of being hit by a meteor than winning the MM jackpot but it's always nice to have a chance.

                  It would be nice if someone on this forum were to win...I would be just as happy to win $250,000 Doh

                    I'll take the meteor if it has the winning numbers attached and I have the ticket !!!

                     

                    Someone will win eventually and they had the same odds as we do...

                    Good luck to all !!!

                      It  might be nice if someone on this forum won but they aren't family.  It would be nicer if someone in my family won and that someone was me.

                              Wow...at least $340 million on Tuesday!  Probably more than that... a record?  My office (in VA) had a pool and we had 147 tickets in last night's drawing.  For the first time we had the mega ball plus three numbers for $150.  I think we will reinvest since that only is a small amount fo each person. 

                              I looked up the odds on our winning combo....one in 13,781!  And that gets you $150!  What a game MegaMillions is!  Still you never know...

                              I live in MD, work in VA...i think i will buy some tickets today!  Good luck to all!Smiley
