At lease you got half your wish and didn't have to adjust your life style to that of a multi-millionaire with $336M.  Why not only play lotteries with jackpots the size you would feel comfortable winning?

Even if the winning ticket belongs to an individual they won't have to get used to the lifestyle a multi-millionaire with $336M either. They'll have to settle for the lifestyle of somebody with an annual pre-tax income of about $8 million, or  a multi-millionaire with about $115 million. I'll bet that will be a lot easier to adjust to.

          They were oh so close. Some 110 employees at Elmont Memorial High School will share a $1 million Powerball prize from Saturday's $336 million drawing -- winning about $4,000 each.

          One winner, teacher John Squillace, 33, of Astoria, Queens, said Tuesday he was one of 110 people who won the prize in Saturday's Powerball drawing.

          The winning ticket for the $336 million Powerball jackpot.

           

           

          Thats a hell of a pool. Blows ours away.Sad

          Hey! I was supposed to be in that pool, I think!

          I hope they covered for me like I'm sure they did for somebody else!

          They knew I wanted to be in for that draw.

          They better not try to screw me!

          Oh well, we'll let the lawyers hash it out and the judge decide.

          Unless they want to settle out of court.

          I don't know why they're so greedy.

          I got bills to pay.

          There should be a law that jackpot winners have to share with people who never win.

          It's all fixed anyway. There's never been even one Powerball jackpot winner at the gas station I go to.

          Now tell me that ain't fixed. Yeah, right.

          Tickets should be free anyway cuz of all that oil we stole from Afghanistan or whatever.

              Yaaaah.........Oklahoma. You guys deserve it. In fact if I should win the next Powerball jackpot, I will forfeit all my winnings and offer it back to to your state.  Banana

                  What was the estimated rollover amount 410? If it increased 16 million during the week might have been closer to 450-475 if it rollovered. Wait till april to find out i guess.

                          You're an idiot. I guess no black person has ever won the lottery cuz this country is so racist (only whites are racist of course) And there will never be a black president either because this country is sooo racist. Oh wait....Puke

                              Looking at USAMega, the powerball has almost reached the megamillions jackpot agian. Looks like sales aren't down that much.
