I say it don't mean a thing unless you got that winning ticket...doo wop doo wop doo wop doo wop!  But to that end, I have been so hard hit by this administrations policies that I am ALL in for the next drawing. I am going to play $50 in QP and another $50 of my own picks.  I predict just like TW will be getting that W at Bay Hill this weekend, I will be collecting a nice lump sum of cash the first week of April (well I will need a few days to consult with my legal team and interview some accountants!).  And I want to truly thank ALL serious and even the casual lottery players as well as those who only jump in when the jackpot exceeds a certain value in ADVANCE for funding my "live how I want to, where I want to" lifestyle fund. You will notice I didn't use or say the "R" word as I think that is the kiss of death.

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!

    If no one wins tuesday i think it will go well over $400 Million

    A couple more rolls and MM will have accomplished with a $1 ticket what PB was hoping to do with a $2 one.

     * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

        GOD DO NOT LET ME WIN THIS MEGA MILLIONS JACKPOT. I wish to win a second prize. It will have less impact in my life.

        1 QUICK PICK TICKET.

        GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY .

          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.

                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.

                  I Agree! partly.a second tier prize win change your life but also you also won't have to deal with all the unwanted press a large jp stirs up. but i still wouldn't mind winning this jp.

                    That is my point. I do not want to deal with all the attention. It will change my current life, and I do not want that. I love the job that I do etc. Winning a lottery jackpot will change all that.

                    Better you or somebody else in lotterypost than me.

                    My dream is to win a MM or PB second prize, that is the reason I play.

                      My estimate MM jackpot will be $405 million by the time of drawing, then it will rise by $115 million to $520 for next rollover. Any objections ?

                        Knowing yourself and your situation is fabulous!  I agree, this kind of win would change not just your LIFE but also your WORLD.  Of necessity it would be a huge roller coaster ride for a while.  Form trusts, travel/hide, move, change name... and still you would be hunted.  You would become the world's most favorite "big game".

                        Wow - put that way?  I'm in!  I will, in a self-sacrificing move, put myself forward as the target of this media-rage/frenzy, thus saving everyone else.  Whew, now I feel better - I have found a way to save the world w/o even saving the cheerleader.

                          I wish you win it all. I might not play at all. They should allow players to claim it anonymously.Good Luck to you, may your wish come true.

                            The media would have a fun time following this winner around.

                            I'm hoping for multiple jackpot winners. With me included in that group...Wink..Thumbs Up

                              Yep.  Heck even a measly 6 million dollar win on 3/14 was investigated by the clerks at my local Publix Grocery Store (where the ticket was bought).  The ticket was bought back in January and they had gone back on the security cameras and knew exactly who bought the winning ticket.  Turns out it was a man who bought it but a woman claimed the prize.  LOL...she must have sent him to get milk and her winning lotto tickets (she played the same numbers for years).  Banana

                               

                              As far as claiming in a trust that usually does no good at sheilding your identity because they also list the beneficiary of the trust.
