i have my online girlfriend playing a set of numbers for me, she lives in the UK i hope we win and that she doesnt run off lol, i guess i can sue her if she tries since it is saved and documented on facebook, haha

She'll be a running.. most likely lol. Actually do you know what the numbers are? If she don't tell you that you'll never know. ;)

    stick with usa jackpots. you'd garner too much attention by winning that european one. realistically no one needs to win that much. headache city. better off knocking down one of the states avg. 3million megabucks type with no bonus number to match. those fly under the radar from the borrowers or expectors.

    great minds think alike,why mess w/ something on the other side of the pond.

      This was in Wikipedia "All prizes, including the jackpot, are tax-free (except in Switzerland) and are paid in lump sum." so it looks that way. Man, $265m in the bank... I'd be happy with just my $10m I'm going after tonight.

       

      Good luck to those playing!

      All Lotteries should be that way!! TAX FREE is how it should be. It amazes me how we are told we are free here in America yet over in Europe you can hit a jackpot, take home the ENTIRE advertised value and not be taxed on it (except in Switzerland). But here in the good ol' us of a where you are supposed to be the FREEST in all the universe, you are taxed to the bejezzers when you hit a jackpot or any other significant amount to boot. As if it's your duty to be stripped of a significant amount of the loot you just won, LEGITIMATELY! Of which you took ALL the risk.

      I can handle the annuity deal. For instance, If you hit a $100,000,000 million dollar powerball jackpot, you can choose the lump sum option of approximately $50,000,000 million dollars which almost all would choose. That's fine. But when the government steps in and says the winner owes them a 30% some odd share of it on top of that, that's where the line should be drawn. It's not like they take just like 1% or something. They take like 30% share, WHICH IS ENOURMOUS!

       

      I would be totally greatful to hit a jackpot dont get me wrong, but really, what the governments here in the USA do to a lottery winner, it's totally un-called for. The Lotteries already give a lot of money back to the States etc.. just like in Europe, but there has to be some kind of line in the sand as to what and how much property (which includes money you win in a lottery) the government TAKES! The Tax burden is absurd. Just hitting a jackpot in some lotteries can put a winner in deep doo doo with the "Authorities".

       

      But in all honesty, Tax Free should be every lottery winners reward for risking what they had to win something BIG. What the government makes in lottery proceeds should be all they make. Taking the winners winnings is just doubly stupid. What's to stop them from taking 50% or 60% or 70%.

      Could you imagine the Founding Fathers say something like this:

                  George Washington says to Thomas Jefferson, "So Thomas, now that we won the war of independence, what tax bracket are you in" 

      This is the oxy moronic stuff i'm talking about. The founders would revolt over much less, like say a 1% tax on tea! But everyone seems to respect that kind of courage. Yet today, if you reject the amount of financial abuse that is handed to us measly old citizens on a daily basis from the government, well then, you are just a "BAD AMERICAN" and you are "Un PATRIOTIC"

      All I have to say to that is that is idiotic!

      We should definitely force the government to stop raping lottery winners winnings as a source of their thievery. 

       

      The End!

          I better tell the world in advance the numbers i played through the agent for this draw should be correct, as i consider my self expert in this field, and only one able to win with guarantee any lotto keno on earth with minimum 45 percent to spend on a jackpot-- say a 5 year period.

          The numbers I choose for this draw are just two blocks, both blocks are in the range of the total: 170-180 including the stars try your luck too and share my millions if you can guess total in hindi language: aeyk , in konkani language: sau (being the 3rd digit) and middle: in Danish language su spelt little wrong as to be striving to use the dictionary.

          I am just now a Dane in New Zealand.  Watch out : one lotto agent will prawl the winner was from Auckland. NZ. a Dane, who indeed will be skypekaitas6 memberane here.

          Euromillions can be played any where from on the internet via the agents. I too am playing with the agents. please feel free to c me and i shall tell you reilable ones.  I got an idea, i decide to play the same winning numbers five times to make sure the winner gets one sixth the share this way i make myself known i know the numbers prior to draw and i dont win with luck but with scientific applications and technology to predict anything and everything on earth and space., with suing number technologgy.. once i am known to states i should be getting usa citizenship outright for my brains.

                Jackpot is 100% yours if you win. The lottery messenger service gets paid to play your tickets. That's it. You get ALL the winnings from whatever you win! Hows that for SWEET!!!

                I use this exact service which is advertised by USA Mega. It's really nice too!
