I would give 10% to church/charity like Yahweh himself has adviced in the good book.

Lets see, Feds take 25%, MA state taxes take 5%, Yahweh takes 10% and I'm left with

$48,000 and hopefully no paying Uncle Sam more taxes at the end of the year. I want to win $80,000 too

Correction:  "Feds get 25%" INITIALLY.  However, upon winner's receival of monies, a good accountant (not many exist for hire) should recommend [since the Lottery Headquarters will not] that winner pays the (unmentioned/unadvertised) remainder of the due 10% to the Federal Government within a month or so of receiving.  This way, the Feds don't get to charge their additional/trick "late payment" fees! 

Therefore, 35% of $$s awarded will be collected (via 2 payments) by the Federal Government in the U.S.A. -- NEVER forget that huge 10% remainder be paid before distributing shares of received funds to friend, family, etc.

    Jerry's Mart convenient store is often referred to as "the lucky store," Manager Junior Patel said.

    The walls are plastered with winning tickets, the highest totaling $750,000 and soon another will be added. One lucky person picked up a $3 Lemon Doubler Cashword ticket and was fortunate enough to scratch off $80,000 what they did next was even more unbelievable.

    The unknown winner placed the winning ticket in the collection plate at Cathedral of Prayer Church in Columbus, donating every penny of the cash earnings to the church.

    "The money is going towards the church and we have to supply the food for the neighborhood, the clothing, everything costs and we give this stuff away free," says Alfonzo Riggins.

    Riggins has been attending cathedral of prayer church for the past 15 years, He also handles security for the pastor and first lady of the church.

    He says he has already received criticisms from people in the community about the church accepting the money.

    "God said a blessing is a blessing you know, no one at the church played the lottery so it had to be an outsider that came in and did this," Riggins said.

    Gloria Rodgers, chief financial officer of Cathedral of Prayer, spoke on behalf of the church, claiming the prize Aug. 26 at the Georgia Lottery's Columbus District Office.

    "It's an excellent thing," she said. "People in the community have come by and put lottery winnings in the offering through the years."

    The $80,000 prize is by far the largest they've received.

    "When we saw this, we didn't know," Rodgers added.

    According to Rodgers, burglars stripped the air conditioning unit of its copper three weeks ago, leaving the edifice without cool air. The anonymous donation will go toward fixing the unit.

    "Everybody is just thrilled," she said. "We're thankful."

    Church members leaving Bible study had no idea about the huge donation their church had gotten but agreed that it was in fact a gift from above.

    "Everything comes from God, everything is a blessing however we received it, and it's a blessing I'm not telling anybody to go out and gamble but however God gave it to you then receives it as that," Riggins said. "I haven't found out yet and I'm not going to ask that question unless it's given to me as a direct order to figure out where it came from."

    For now this church's $80,000 blessing will for now remain a mystery.

    Dear Rev. Fr.  When I was born I was left abanndonned under the statue of a saint in a catholic church in Nauru island,  an australian territory. I was taken by an 88 old lady by borth and she left a fortune of 500 million AUD to raise me up till age of 18-20.  I grew up isolated and spotless of sin inspite of the tormil world. I am gifted by god to predict lottery and keno numbers of any lottery or keno on this earth, and i have done this for many organisations and bodies and public too. my total winnings in lotery and keno not by luck is around 100 million us dollars in 20 years period span, but to win this amount i ahd to play or invest around 30 million us dollars.

    besides any scratche, without being scratched only by touching it, i can tell it holds money or not, and this is true, i have won or told a shop owner in denmark, his shop-asif koisk, in copenhagen roughly 10 years ago from bundles of 10,000 scratches coming to his shop, for around 5 years he the shop owner asked my helpå and finally one day from the immense bundles i asked him to cut the strip and his step daughter scratch it, and it was winning 13,000 DKK (2000 us dollars) per month for 13 years, or 2000x12x13 us dollars.  so father lottery is not gambling and if you need more money i can promise you its possible with around 30 percent investment. please accept the money for the church as just as some have gifts so too some have hearts to give what god bless them.

    my prayers and blessings i pray to the person for his kindness of donating.

          Solomon Johnson The Clever Giver has been doing this since the Texas Lottery was established in 1992 for this is the reason He prayed for its legalization in Texas where there was no lottery. Read his stories "The Clever Giver" By Solomon Johnson, DBA SOLOMON JOHNSON THE CLEVER GIVER! This is the type of movement the book the book and story tells about.  Even "The World Wide Iraqi Dinar Clever Giver Windfall" also. Google Solomon Johnson The Clever Giver and See how far back this goes.

            No, you mean Solomon Burke, that's who you're trying to think of, there ain't no Solomon Jackson or whatever.

            Now Solomon Burke was a good singer that just died last year.

            He inspired a lot of people with his songs like "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love."  Remember that one? Yeah, that was Solomon Burke. I don't think he wrote no book called the Clever Diver or whatever either. I don't think he even knew how to swim. That must have been somebody else.

            So that's the guy you're trying to think of, yeah, Solomon Burke.

            Nobody ever heard of no Solomon Jackson.

            Solomon Burke even inspired Wilson Pickett to sing a few of his songs. Do you remember Wilson Pickett? Yeah, the "Wicked Pickett" they called him, remember that?

            He did "The Land of a Thousand Dances." Remember that one?

            Yeah, it goes like this here:

            1-2-3
            1-2-3
            Ow! Uh! Alright! Uh!

            Got to know how to pony
            Like Bony Maroney
            Mash potato, do the alligator
            Put your hands on your hips, yeah
            Let your backbone slip
            Do the Watusi
            Like my little Lucy
            Hey! Uh!

            Na na-na-na-na na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na na-na-na-na
            I need somebody to help me say it one time
            (Na na-na-na-na na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na na-na-na-na )
            Wo--ow! 


            Wow! Uh! You know I feel alright! Huh! I feel pretty good y'all
            Uh! Huh!
            Na na-na-na-na na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na na-na-na-na
            Come on y'all, let's say it one more time
            (Na na-na-na-na na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na na-na-na-na )
            Ooow!

            Playing, it is a habit
            With long tall Sally
            Twistin' with Lucy
            Doin' the Watusi
            Roll over on your back
            I like it like that
            Do that Jerk-uh
            Watch me work y'all
            Ow! Do it!
            Wow! Do it!
            Just watch me do it

            Aah help me
            Aah help me
            Aah help me
            Aah help me

             

            Yeah that was cool, I don't remember it though.

            Waaaaaaaaay before my time, dude.

            Well at least I jogged your memory so you get the name right, Solomon Burke.

            Just keep repeating it over and over to yourself like this: Solomon Burke, Solomon Burke, Solomon Burke, Solomon Burke, that way you won't forget it!
