What's amazing is that all the 68 winners hit for second prize and non of them included the megaplier. It would be a lottery nightmare if the 68 people had included the megaplier.

Anyways, like I said last week, Rhode Island hit for the big one last month. A month before that was the Connecticut hedge fund managers. Now the jackpot is gettin hit right here in good old Taxachusetts.

Connecticut >> Rhode Island >> Massachusetts Cool

That money's gone fo ever

    I saw the plan made up by the people that rig these things!

    Pennsylvania will win on Friday because a big Mega Millions Win in the town next to where the HGTV Dream Home winner is located will be great "Press!"    Bat

      I like how you folks over there in the EU and in Canada run your lotteries. Some of our states over here have an additional tax (New Jersey at 10.8% for example) in addition to the 35% Federal rate. Pretty sad considering most of those taxes, both Federal and State, are spent within minutes after Uncle Sam gets them.

        jersey is a good example, Kumo, @ 10.8% we have the highest state lottery tax.

        and them bums passed the law in the middle of the night,and the newspapers never mentioned it.

        i guess thats why the lottery still has ads in the newspapers.

            I believe there's a mass migration taking place from New York to California right now.

            It's composed of those rebels who refuse to obey the government mandate and insist on putting salt on their food.

            Reports confirm however, that the rebels have found neither an easy life nor safe haven from the Food Police in California either.

            It appears Governor Moonbeam has just signed an Executive Order mandating that all pizza in California must henceforth be made with toppings consisting only of fully sprouted alfalfa, wheat germ, non-fat sugar-free plain Greek Yogurt and Gingko Biloba.

            He is asking for the cooperation of anyone seeing someone eating pizza with unapproved toppings to immediately call the DNC.

            **giggle** - I had absolutely NO idea that I was a 'closet-rebel' as I (lowering voice to a whisper) salt my food... ssshhh don't tell anyone please!  and I REALLY was clueless about why I never desired to move to California.  Rdgrnr - you answered my question for me... innately I musta known that I would hate their pizza!  No WONDER you are an oracle!  lolol (typed as I hastily hide my salt and bacon-salt)

              When I opened up the email of the winning numbers I received last night, I just knew for certain the jackpot this Friday was going to be a mere $12 million.  I am happy my numbers have another chance at hitting a monumental jackpot!

              I promise LP land I won't disappoint in claiming it the right way.  And there won't be any disputes since I participate in ZERO lottery pools.

                    I would love to win this jackpot on friday.  For all the little people who every day put their money into mega millions pots hoping for that one shinning moment.  But alas it is me weshar75 that will swoop in and take this jackpot off of everyones hands.  Yes!  Oh thank you!  No No!  Thank you!  Oh No no!  Thank you!-weshar75

                          I love these big jackpots like this because it is a great time to catch the hypocrites that claim that they don't play the lottery and that the lottery is a tax on the poor and all the other garbage that comes out of their mouths. If you have a dollar in your pocket and you don't throw it in the ring for a chance to win $300 million, then I have to say you are a pretty stupid individual.

                              For me the toughest times are when the Lottery is HUGE (like now) and when it has just rolled over.  Why?  Because I had determined that I would spend just 2$ per draw irrespective of the level of the lottery, using the logic that 12M$ would change my life pretty much just as much as 300M$ would ... but what I find about myself is that I am MORE sorely tempted to change my strategy at the 12M/20M$ level than I am at the 300M$ level.  Seems I dont know as much about me as I would have hoped.  Unhappy
