Funny, I live in a MegaMillion State, but as my daughter said to me this afternoon,"we better go buy some tickets in Ohio if we want to win."

Winning at the "Mega" game is slim to no chance here, it seems.

Good Luck to all of you MegaMillion players in MARYLAND!

Well your daughter has a point - if you win it in  Ohio you may claim it anonymously.  Boy I wish Ohio was a little closer to California... looks like a lot of out-of-state residents go to buy it there considering how often winners bought tickets in Ohio.

    Before Ohio had the MegaMillions Ohioans were winning PowerBall jackpots in Indiana and BigGame jackpots is Michigan.  It's not where you play but what you play that make you a winner.

        Even with the worse case scenario for taxes, someones walking away with over 100 million.

         

        Between my wife and I we have 17 brothers and sisters, so winning this one would make a lot of millionaires. Party

            damn. good thing I have one sibling. I would only share money with those who have intiated a phone call to me this year and guess what thats all on one hand.... I love playing MegaMillions its the only game  I win money in Houston in the past year...anywhere from $3 to $600 dollars.  May not sound like a lot but base on my lottery expense i am a little ahead.  I play mostly ore or two dollars at a time.... but i think i may splurge but I want to jackpot to hit $622 million. dont ask me why but thats been in my dream many times in the past year...

                Just the type of media the lottery wants, should bring in lots more sales. There seems to be a trend with record jackpots now. The match 6 is also the highest it has ever been. I wonder if the powerball will follow?

                    From what I have read, most of the previous winners had chosen Quick Picks. I am sure there are many here that choose their own numbers but I just let the computer pick mine out.

                      People who pick their own numbers don't really care what everyone else thinks.

                        Really? Where in NY did you stay? I always comment when I go to CT to play powerball that there are so many more places to play lotto in NY than in CT. I live 10 minutes outside NYC and there are lotto retailers every 10 feet. Would you consider playing online? I don't even know how I feel about that, but it's just a thought.

                              I plan to spend about 20 for tuesdays huge jackpot, it should be enough to cover all my predictions. I hope there is a few winning tickets so that the money gets to as many people as possible.
