"money into at least 4% earning checking or savings account"

you know a bank that's offering 4% interest on a checking or savings account? Please let me know the name of the bank. I'm barely making 0.9% APY on my savings account.

If you are offering to put big money into the Millions into a credited bank you can negotiate interest rates much much higher then

the bank advertises. I'd ounce witness a wealth man negotiating fix interest up to 7 to 8 percent because he had millions to put in a CD Fix investment.

The banks are willing to do this easily when its large money coming in.

    how recently was this? you know the Federal Reserve has cut interest rates to almost nothing, right? Gone are the days you can put cash in a CD and earn 4% interest.

    ING bank is offering 0.75% for a one year CD and 1.25% on a 5 year CD. (http://www.ingdirect.com/ocd/)

      NY again? Not NY and then CA....Not CA and then NY. I'm quit !

      Tony I feel your pain and share part of your sentiment....New York AGAIN!!!  I am glad it was a large pool that won it though because instead of it being some huge amount of money for one person, it is a fairly pedestrian $2.5million after taxes...heck I would be richer than several of them combined if I just won my little state lottery right about now come this Saturday.  But I am not hatin' on the winners...just a bit vexed that it seems Cali, Indie, and NY have been hogging Mega and Powerball jackpots lately....how about some northern Illinois love for a change of pace?  And I agree...I don't care how excited I would be if (when) I win the big jackpot, I would still do my due diligence in setting up my affairs first before venturing into the lottery office to claim the prize.

      Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

      The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

        Funny, I never hear of anyone from California ever winning Powerball. I guess Powerball just doesn't like California

          It never ceases to amaze me that peole dont understand why a PB or MM Jackpot winning ticket is frequently sold in either New York or California.

          Maybe this will help;  38 million people live in California, it's the most populated state in the union. The third most populated state is New York with 19 million residents.   The NY Lottery is North America’s largest and most profitable Lottery.

          NY and California sell more lottery tickets than any other state with the possible exception of Texas, which is the second most populated state in the union.  25 million people live in Texas.

          Better get use to it folks.  JP winners will probably be sold in those two states for a many more years.

          About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!

            I am basically new to this blog, I live in NYC and l've been following this blog for a while now, but I never registered. Now for those that say that NY get the Jackpot all the time, you might be right, but usually the people that win it are in in Long island or Upstate NY. We in the city have won it maybe a couple of times in the last 3 years nothing more. Now I used to play 20 bucks when the price hit over 150 millions, but not anymore. To me if you are gonna win it all you need is luck and one dollar. Another reason why folks here  might win it  frequently is because they spend over 100 dollars all the time. California get the Mega millions all the time which to me is the better game.

            The folks that won it was via Quick Pick.

                Further evidence that group play is the best way to win. Congratulations to the group.     Cheers

                Actually, the amount of lottery jackpots won by single players completely eclipses thoses won by pools.  If one were to apply your simplistic logic, one would conclude that it would be foolish to play in a pool.  More foolish still would be to play in a pool arranged over the Internet.

                 

                Check the State Lottery Report Card
                What grade did your lottery earn?

                  Todd, I assume you meant to write "one would conclude that it would be foolish to not play in a pool".

                  My logic may be simplistic but I guess that is the beauty of the logic, the simplicity. One ticket gives one chance to win. One ticket in a group gives as many as 50 chances to win. No system ever devised improves one's odds 50 fold. One major qualification is to apply the logic only when the jackpot is very large like the recent $200 million Powerball jackpot. Different strokes for different folks.

                        I used to think that the 1st of the month was a lucky day for Mega Millions (I know this was a Powerball jackpot). In 2006 and 2007, I noticed that there were a lot of jackpot winners on the 1st - or maybe I just paid more attention to the 1st than other days.

                        Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                        In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                          um... California does not sell powerball

                          California law requires lottery prizes to be pari-mutuel. I think this might be why California hasn't adopted Powerball and why California was one of the last states to adopt Mega Millions when the two big games could not be sold in the same state.

                          Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                              Clarification....I lumped CA in with my discussion of Indie and NY winning the Mega and Powerball jackpots...of course, CA only offers Mega but it seems as though if it isn't CA, NY, or Indie winning Mega Millions, then it is NY and Indie winning Powerball.  Sure, Washington, North Carolina, Texas, Oklahoma, Jersey, and Idaho get in the mix to break the streak.  And I noticed that when a certain NBA player took his talents to South Beach, that cold state stopped winning the Mega Millions!  South Beach can have that NBA championship...I just need some "Rosey" luck with any of the jackpot games (hey real people can't be choosy when it comes to winning a few million they didn't have to begin with!).

                              And no...it is Indie's year off!
