Congratulations NY Costco workers!  The article couldn't mention the true amount of your exciting jackpot win -- after your now and later federal taxes are paid -- however, you'll 20 each end up with approximately $2.82M.  Certainly, that's not enough for a prudent attached, married, or head of household person to retire on, but it's a VERY tidy win, and can create comfort while you continue to work your current job, and receive those benefits in dental, perscription, etc. 

Next each of the 20 will soon need to learn how to limit lottery playing while shifting to lowest risk investing into some avenues mix of real estate tax lien and deed certificates, stock options, or similar.

    Mathematically it takes ONE ticket with all the numbers from the call to win. Now thats the REAL math.

    Now statistics of play and odds of play are NOT what is being discussed.

     

    Not a fan of group play either. Find it silly when the pot says we won 20 million , yet when all is said and done the person walks away with half a mill. Not really worthy of bragging rights ....

    I figure if I win I win by my own accord and not riding the coat tails of other players.....

    IT TAKES ONE TICKET TO WIN

    I agree IT TAKES ONE TICKET TO WIN.I do not believe in lottery pools or syndicates because it takes one combination to win it all.Many big prizes and jackpots have been won with one ticket.

      "Now thats the REAL math."   What?

      Of course one ticket can win a lottery. Stating one ticket can win a lottery is stating the obvious. The game rules dictate that a single ticket can win a lottery. That has nothing to do with math.

      Math is used to determine the probability of winning with a single ticket as opposed to many tickets.

      It is trivial to calculate that playing many tickets increases one's chances of winning. Now that is REAL math.

        You're right on the money THRIFTY!

        Lottery Pools are very risky, especially over the internet and even more risky if they're outside the country where the crooks hide and steal your money.

        It just happened again in Canada.

        Very risky.

        You have much a better chance of winning as an individual anyway and you don't have to split with thousands of people to get a couple thousand dollars if you win.

        When you buy your own tickets you get the whole thing.  Millions, all to yourself.

            More lies from the fake Christian.

            Please stop stalking me, mario.

            I was addressing someone else.

            There was no call for you to attack me and call me a liar and make derogatory comments about my religious beliefs.

            Please read the rules and abide by them from now on.

            You're starting to creep me out, dude.

              Wow, you are preaching the rules! Not only have I read the rules, I quote them in my signature expressly for your benefit since you never follow them.

              What religious beliefs? I asked you what religion you belonged to and you refused to answer. I do not believe there is a religion that would have you as a member.

                So how come you attacked me calling me a liar and a fake Christian when I wasn't even talking to you if you know the rules so well?

                And it's none of your dam business what religion I might or might not belong to.

                  I did not call you a liar. I said you are spreading lies. There is a difference. I commented on your behavior and not you as a person - unlike your comments that always attack me personally.

                  It is against the Christian faith to spread lies and hatred. Your behavior shows you to not be a real Christian but instead a fake Christian. Fake Christians use religion as a label but not as a doctrine of behavior. Fake is as fake does.

                    When you say someone is spreading lies you are calling them a liar, personally.

                    When you say someone is a fake Christian you are attacking their religious beliefs on a personal level.

                     

                    You could run for President on the D ticket down here the way you lie and twist things around, dude.

                     

                    I'm still willing to back you on your Little mario's Hot Chip Stand idea though.

                    But you have to lose all the hate and hostility first.

                    How about it, Sparky?

                        I didn't call you a liar or attack your religious beliefs like you did to me. That was despicable! I'm shocked and appalled!

                         

                        Oh, and I need to know the launch date for the Little mario's Hot Chip Stand so we can get all the particulars worked out, dude.

                        Call me, I'm really stoked about this! You're gonna be the HOT CHIP KING of CANADA!

                        That sounds pretty good, huh?

                        Let me know. We gotta toss some ideas around.

                        I'm thinking ketchup and mustard in the same sqeeze bottle as kind of a catchy gimmick.

                            Hey, one of my favorite cowards is back!

                            The one who likes to throw insults and then run and hide for a couple months cuz he can't take the heat.

                            Did you think I forgot about our previous exchange on April 5th and 6th when you ran and hid after I responded to you?

                            It's right here in this thread:

                            http://www.lotterypost.com/news/229861/2013536

                            Do you remember the very next time you posted?

                            It was on May 29th and it was just another attack on me from which you ran and hid until now.

                            You can see it in this thread:

                            http://www.lotterypost.com/news/232000/2075929

                            And now you've come back to do a little more hit and run and hide sniping. How brave of you! You're my hero! You said the U.S. deserves to be a third world country. I'll bet your daddy is proud of his little weasel! You're probably a chip off the old block!

                            Actually you're a lot like the Tennessee Lottery - no balls.

                            See ya in a couple months!

                            On the other hand, maybe I have something called a "life" and found you to be an uninteresting dullard not worth the time of day.

                            D'ya think?
