I totally agree with you!  I picked up two tickets.  Can't wait to claim my prize in the morning...I've got a feeling!Approve

I'm only fine with that if there's two winners and I'm the other one.

        just over 150m cash, sweet lord these jackpots are rare, if this was powerball cash, it be marketed as 300m plus already LOL

        98m atfer  35% max fed tax,

        am sure they find a few more millions in sales and boost  numbers again like what happened on this story maybe to boot,

        and the drawing happening right on 31st !

        at 11pm 1 hour before new years!,  someone could start 2011 off with a hell of a win, what a party nite

         

        and god forbid it keeps rolling  past that , could we be seeing a record jackpot in early 2011? maybe,

        we could see easy a 200m cash jackpot next roll, thats how fast it flys up once the public see's 300m plus Annuity

          I might have to grab some extra tickets.

          Why? Some folks don't even play when the Jackpot is $12 Million, so why buy additional tickets just because the Jackpot increase by 4 Million?

          A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

            I didn't know that Mega Millions jumps up the grand prize.

              Let me get something straight here, the most i have one is $10 on occasions, i have no reason to lie. I truly do spend $100 on a average per drawing.I own a dry cleaning business that allows me to have extra cash to spend on the lottery, i dont have kids and my wife is retired navy.   Big Smile

              I never doubted your story about spending over $50,000 on MegaMillion tickets in five years, it was saying "have not won a dime!" is what I found impossible to believe.  Now that you've changed your story to "the most I have one(won) is $10", it's a little more believable.
