What if it grows past the previous large jackpot say 400 Million the person that won that or people that won would have to move to Peru or Japan or somewhere eles but America becuase they would be a household name!

But when i win i will form a trust because i want to live a life of peace and comfort!!!

Look at the Harris' ($275m), Chris Shaw ($258m), Chaney/West famillies ($340m) and the Lerner's ($258m). Those were some of the highest ever jackpots but they're still keeping low, you just have to be smart about everything. The problem with Jack Whitaker and Abraham Shakespeare is they just either didn't get the advice they needed or they went crazy with the money. If we did have a $400 million winner and they were smart about it I don't think they'd have any issue living here.

Thankfully there are states that allow trusts and anonymous collecting, so not everyone has to worry about the issues that come with winning the lottery. I know if I won even the smalles jackpot I would collect via a trust.

    I honestly hope it rolls 4-5 more times, it would be interesting to see if it would get close to breaking 400. The jackpot on August 28 2009 make a nice leap from the previous (+84 mil), but the jackpot on May 4, 2010  didn't really have the same go as the Jan 4 2011 run did. It might of been the perfect storm with xmas and the new year happening (the spending season). Only time will tell.

      Of course it would be nice to win the jackpot. Lately, ive been wanting to win the match 5+0 $1,000,000 megaplied/powerball powerplayed prize. I just want my mom to retire, and buy a nice single family house with a garage. She's 51 and works two jobs cleaning houses and working at a supermarket.

        i also would like to get my mom to retire... she works 2 jobs also plus my dad is not in good health, so when i can not be here she has to be in two places at once. i want to win for them if i won the 5+0 with out a megaplier i would just give it to them... if i won the 1 million i would spit it with them! 500K before taxes is good enough for both of us!

        However, the entire jackpot would be my chance to really help them. i would form a trust and give them half! they can really be set for the rest of there life... and mine too!

                About to head out and get my tickets. Have had a strain of back luck lately so maybe today with this draw it'll change.

                I can only hope.

                      it rolled to 172m, as 108.9m cash

                      or atfer max fed rate of 35%, 70,850,000  , o hell ya i  glady take 70m atfer tax's!


                      as for it being on track to copy cat   $168 Million as 107m cash   ,

                      so far as its rollovers amounts are mirroring as just like what happened with epic run we had 2 months ago that is

                      if it keeps rolling , i think it be safe call it  to just above 200m if it rolls over, , then just about 243 -250m ish,

                      and form their,its blastoff, the jackpots Solid Rocket Boosters fire and we go form 250m into High 360m nearing 400m range, in 1 roll,   41 states in lotto buying  fever is pure insane.

                       

                      that is ofc if jackpot keeps playing Avoid everyone!, leave me alone! i just want to roll to record game!

                      at 11 players winning 2nd place, players overall are sure buying will below 50% of all number combo's, so the  odds sure favor it rolling, once we get to 250m level, then its a 50/50 kind of game,

                      and ofc 300+ range  at thro at them sell levels, its nearly doomed to be hit at that point.  but it ever gets past 300m range, say hello to 500m

                              Unhappy..and out of the 210 we won 19 dollars.Connecticut is really in the cellar as far as winning tickets for JP games.So we rolled the 19 into tonight
