Well i got $1QP my husband needed the other two dollars for the car wash. It only takes one line to win right!

I would take the cv and use a certain amount to go "crazy" with and then set up a conservative budget to live off of and invest a portion.

That's right KS, it only takes one.

I hope you got a lucky one!

      That's funny you say that because I was looking at how many comments were in the $290 million thread, $241 thread and the $200 million thread (only has 71 comments lol ) Goes to show you maybe a $200 million jaackpot is not much to chat about anymore?

      $241 is when the chatting really started going!!

       

      Congrats to me on my 100th post lol Dance

        i don't bet it be 34 pages gocart1

        here why

        i bet their going to up amount jackpot amount before monday ends, as sells will be to high"all record jackpots get bumped during last mins"   ,and top  lottery people wil have a short meeting monday, look at data form sat/sunday, guest monday,tues sells based off last 2 days,

        ,and give the ok to market the new Amount

         

        so their be a new story on here how it got upped. and we commit on that  one more. that's my thinking anyway with bets

        history repeats,  go look at 2011 run of the 240m cash jackpot,  it got upped many times over,and where higher then that in cash"real sales"

        and we had many stories on it,i like being on lottery post when jackpot this high

        everyone gets worked up in excitement over it.

        No bees, no honey.

          Really? I didn't know they could do that.

          Never paid attention to lottery before so I didn't know they could raise the amount again, twice?

            there is no way to claim a jackpot this amount anonymous.the lottery commission and the media will be investigating who won as soon as the jackpot is hit. the only thing you can do is wait about 5 or more months or until another jackpot is hit to form a trust and then claim ticket.that's what I would do anyway.

            Yes, you can. It depends where you live, but you can even try to work something out. I know every state is going to want the attention, but going on the tube is the worst mistake ever. Claiming it too early is also a mistake. When I see all six of those numbers are the same Tuesday night, we're going to start looking for legal advice the next day. No family members and close family friends will be called until after all business has been taken care of. I'm not going to even go into the store I bought the winning ticket from. While everyone is wondering who won, I'm going be wondering with them.  Knowing it's me, but they don't won't know that.

              Hey OldSchool!

              I got most of my teeth (left a couple or three in saloons) and I was born and breaded in East Tennessee and we ain't never won nothin' up in here leastways as I can tell. C'mon now!

              I would be more than happy to share...as long as you hold the other winning ticket!  I knew I could count on a response from you Rdgrnr, but I was actually referring to lucky MO $258M PB jackpot winner Chris Shaw who showed off his toothless grin when he won.  Instead, I will be showing off all of my pearly whites! 

              I still haven't purchased my all in tickets...still got $98 to go.  The QPs will be easy, but I am just trying to get the vibes on my own picks.  If I don't feel anything too strong, I might just put a playslip up on my dart board and fire away and see where the hanging chads are located.  Then I will play a combination of those numbers.  After all, it is nothing but a game of chance and my chances of hitting that way are just as good as someone who over analyzes the previous numbers drawn trying to come to some prediction as to which numbers will roll the next time.  Even Brad Duke wouldn't have won had he not played multiple sets of numbers.  Just think about that!  If I win Tuesday, I would be ahead of Brad Duke in jackpot winnings!!!  Yes, I would gladly allow TLCML to profile me for one of their future episodes...but only after the year 2016.  I need a few years to enjoy the winnings before I show everyone "how I am living!"

              Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

              The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                I do not believe that there will be anything 'conservative' about the budget that I will live within.  Simply because there is too much money and too much to do... and an airplane to buy (along with flying lessons... well ok... flying lessons first and then the plane)

                  10 QPs with megapliers bought tonight using house money won from Friday's draw. Might get one more slip using 'my' numbers.

                  Now, has there ever been any KNOWN winner of a major lotto (MM, PB, Big Game, whatever) that used a 'system'? I'm not talking 'lucky numbers' (birthdays, anniversarys, etc.)---that's not a system. I'm talking someone who pain-stakingly anaylized numbers of previous draws in order who determine the likelihood of a winning combination--a matrix or whatever--and actually WON with that method.

                  Cause I'm calling bull<snip> on all that until someone opens my eyes to see something different.

                    Roughly $168 million after all taxes are estimated.  I will probably stay up Tuesday night and check the numbers to see if I need to go to work on Wednesday.

                    I have to wait until I get home from work to find out.....

                        man its been a while since everybody around me has been so hyped about the lottery. the media is really getting worked up about this. the winner(s) better make travel plans to some place far far away.

                          I AM PROBABLY THE ONLY PERSON ON EARTH ABLE TO PREDICT LOTTO KENO NUMBERS, USUALLY IT TAKES A LOT OF INVESTMENT IN THE GUESS WORK, IN MOST CASES THE GUESS WORK IS NOT FROM THE BLUES, BUT WITH DEDICATED HARD RESEARCH WORK WHICH HAS BEEN IN THE PAST FRUITFULL.  I PLAY FROM NEW ZEALAND SOME OF THE GAMES OF USA AND I DID THE ABOVE LOTTO ONCE AND GOT MANY NUMBERS CORRECT, I HAVE JUST PLACED SOME OLD TICKETS I WON ON. I PLAY THROUGH AGENTS WHO BITE ALL THE COMMISSION. 

                          I JUST READ THE LAST DRAW WAS WON TOO BY ONE MEMBER WHO PLAYS ONLINE HE GOT A 5 CORRECT, I HAVE SOME NUMBERS FOR THE MEGA MILLIONS ON TUESDAY, IF I WON IT, I SHALL DISCLOSE IT TO LOTTERY POIST TOO, I THINK THE AGENTS ONLINE I PLAY ARE IN NEW YORK. I AM ON SKYPE: KAITAS6

                           

                          IF ONLY ALL KNEW HOW TO CHOOSE LOTTO KENO NUMBERS FOR EACH DRAW, I AM CERTAIN LOTTO WILL NEVER GO NO WIN.

                            in this thread? 34 sounds good, unless the jackpot is adjusted upwards again before Tuesday.  Type
