I would ask for $5000 personal check with a date.  Also write up a dated contract for payment with friend.  After all the checks has cleared then I would claim my jackpot.  Use their money for my expenses while I plan for my future.  I would not ask for cash because they would state that I used their money to buy tickets.  After claiming my jackpot, I would reward them for their kindness.  :P

God help me, I am bad.

LOL....  being bad?  God my help in way you wouldn't want..

    The only way to determine if a State is "Lucky" is if you compare the number of tickets SOLD vs. the number of jackpot winners in a given period. I always thought Ohio was the one.

    And I'd rather see a friend win than an unknown person, even if that friend didn't give me anything.

      I'm weak, I can't help it.  I wouldn't ask for a thing, but I would definetly cry for about 2 months.  Any friend can win........EXCEPT FOR ONE I KNOW................she'd rub it in till it was raw.  She's very much into bling bling things and loves, loves, loves to talk about how perfect she is. lol In that case, your all wondering why she's my friend. Huuummmm.....beats me!

      Even though you'd be happy seeing someone you know win.........would it kill you each time you see him/her enjoying everything the $$ brings while you struggle to just get by? The thought of "why couldn't it of been me" running through your head?

      I would smile and be happy for them, but cry my eyes out in yes........jealousy.

      Surrender You can run, but you can't hide mighty Jackpot...surrender to me at once!

        I would NOT want to see a friend win over a stranger.  But here's why.  How rare is it for two close friends to win the  (same) lottery?  I guess technically (or is it logically?)  one  really doesnt have  much to do with the other  but  the odds of having a friend win the lottery and you winning it  are huge!

        I guess if one of my friends lived in Ohio or something and win Powerball and I live in CA and  win our SuperLotto then I would be okay.

        But If one of my friends won the lottery  I truelly would not ask for anything or change my relationship with them.  I hate the feeling of getting phone calls from friends (or even relatives) only when they want something.  But yes  I will admit that I'd hope they would share without my asking.

          I would ask all my friends for $5000 to see if who were truely my friends before claiming jackpot.  Most likely they would decline.  This would save alot of money after claiming jackpot.  I'll bet they would not ask.  LOL 

          I would not want a friend who would ask me for $5000 or even to co-sign for a loan that size.  I've had friends who had a lot more than me and when I visited them, they would take me out to a fine restaurant and pick up the tab and when they visited me, I would take them to Mickey Dee and pick up the tab.  I've never felt that my life style should depend on the amount of money my friends and relatives have and I would feel the same way if I ever won a lottery jackpot about their life style.
