Universe I am feeling it!!! US FlagDancePartyHAPPY MEMORIAL DAY EVEYRONE!!! GOD BLESS

Seriously, SCREW FLORIDA. They're the reason why the Powerball is harder to win. They already have a successful state lottery why have another?  States will small State-lottery prizes should have the Powerball and Mega games.

      If you were anonymous, you wouldn't have to worry about relatives coming by.

      Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings.  They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed.  And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.

      If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!

        True, but most states won't allow you to be anonymous if you win.

                  I suspect more then one ticket will carry the winning numbers. Thus splitting the cash jackpot of 84 mill. Nuthin to sneeze about when 1 million would be enough to make it thru the economic hardships. I've no doubt I will part of the group that contributes. The odds are more in my favor of losing then winning.A realist accepts this and still believes in the stars. :) 

                  It wil be interesting to read how the winner acquired the ticket. It seems they often have a quirky story to tell.

                          There was one winning ticket and it was sold in South Dakota.

                          You can't predict random.

                            I knew it would be hit tonight. It is getting a little too predictable. Skeptical

                              Who told you this?   When I checked the numbers tonight, the FL site showed someone in Florida won, so there must be 2 winners. 

                              By the way, I don't understand the negative comments on this thread concerning FL.  We contribute more to PB than any other state AFAIK.

                              Frankly, I wish we didn't have it.  Too tempting.
