Well good luck to everyone!!! Let the good Lord shine his blessing on your life. Hopefully mine too!!! But has anyone noticed... a large jackpot at the end of the year before they change to $2.00 tickets?! It may roll one more time. And I would love to win in Tennessee! But after remembering something "The Dragon Lady" -Quoting Ridge-runner will get all the credit and not get the boot! Think I'll play more tickets in GA! Ha Ha Good luck to all

    I wish me and 9 other people win this jackpot giving each of us atleast 10 million dollar after tax. That way me and those 9 other people and their family will be set for life and not just one person winning it all.

      I am hoping that 1 person wins! That will give the Greed of Envy (Occupy Wall Street) Crowd another myocardial infarction !

      ............... and of course Pennsylvania(Scottdale)  is due to hit very big !

      You may say why reveal my town? ..................... it will be revealed anyway ............. no more info than necessary !

      Lep I will be going "green" by purchasing a Bentley that is flexfuel and can run on E85 !!!! ....... and with about $95,000,000 after Federal confiscation ! No State tax on lottery winnings in PA !

        Thudi'm going to pass out and faint for seven minutes on wednesday around 11:01pm ... who should i thank? "I'd like to thank God, I'd like to thank lotterypost and all of you who played for helping me realize my dream" ... whew ... I'm super excited to win .. I have so much to do, get attorneys that do estates/taxes/realestate/financial planning to claim for me and then help me pay off all of my debts! I really wish all of you the best of luck for ANOTHER drawing, but this one here, is mine mine mine, all mine!!!okay? good .. don't worry, I'll keep putting in my weekly $2 to ensure you have a nice pot when YOU win!!

        Hurray!

        Do not get too excited things can turn very cold.Bang Head  ................$1 and a Goal!

               After taxes (according to the list Todd has on his page, allow me to make a few +/-, arithmetic on that...LOL,no offence Todd, I just like covering ALL of my bases), that would be about $80 - $90 million! Well, student loans are getting paid and maybe, a Ph.D degree, for the sake of self achievement.  New toys? Okay, maybe a nice in shape hmm, 2008 BMW, yeah, that would do. A nice home, no need to go over the board, anything more than $500,000 is just asking for trouble. Of course, my brother can have his student loans paid off as well not to mention, get his Master's degree if he so chooses. My parents, they finally get their house paid off, and the opportunity to travel, they have not done so in the longest time. My fiance's student loans (not that much) but hey, it will give us the opportunity to start on a clean slate, debt free. The rest of the money, will have to be invested, set aside, diversified and, most imprortantly, a few charities dear and close to my heart, I give the best I can, time and money but, with such a windfall, what a difference THAT would make. Oh, to dream! Well, best of luck to everybody and do not overlook the Mega Millions draw of tomorrow, that amount is nothing to sneeeze at, either.

                 Good luck everybody and may a derserving person win.

                  Okay, back to work with me, I still have a job to go to until my WINDFALL, God willing/luck willing, rains on me.

                  That's right but I've been advised not to comment on anything related to anything like that at the risk of having my head stomped into a fine pulp and the rest of my carcass thrown into a chipper like that guy did in that movie "Fargo".

                  So I ain't sayin nothin.

                    E85 is as much a hoax as global warming carbon credits. I had an F-150 with E85. As soon as I put that stuff in the tank, my onboard computer recalculated my mpg down by 40%. With that Bentley, that means your mpg will be 1. Skeptical

                     

                    Good luck everyone! If I'm not the winner this time, I hope it is one of you!

                      True, but I was thinking more along the lines of Goodfellas... talk smack, get beat, wrapped in a table cloth, and get buried somewhere in the Nashville area.... I am so sorry Ridge I've said too much!

                          Lol, I want to say "Good Luck" to everybody, but I know deep down inside I'm thinking "More Luck for Me!" I know some of y'all are thinking the same thing! Anyway, I'll set up a poll on LotteryPost.com to ask what I should name my blind trust after I win the whole thing! And then some of y'all can at least get some consolation knowing you helped a lottery winner avoid the "Lottery Curse!" Happy Halloween and Happy Powerball Drawing on Wednesday!

                          While the value of a dollar is substantial, hope is priceless. But if you ain't got a dollar, then it's hopeless.

                              I was kinda' being sarcastic about the E85 ................ I really want an expensive car so that I can drive past the lazy, good for nothing, Greed of Envy, Occupy Pittsburgh lowlifes !!!!!!!! Just saw a 14 year old on TV that employs 2 other 14 year old's in his computer repair business! Last nite I saw a nice young man & his wife, both of whom grew up in the projests purchasing a $1,000,000 + home. He started his business with $50 & and created an new kind of Internet Business. Instead of protesting, the Occupy Morons should make their own work!

                              We need more millionaires, not more protesters!

                              When I win, the $95,000,000 or so will be mine and nobody's to protest!

                              I have investment ideas and charity ideas that are mine to do with a nice Lottey Jackpot!

                              US Flag Greatgrandpap came here with nothing more than 1 piece of baggage and a great work ethic combined with ideas & made a decent living!
