Nice JP lots of fun to dream about. I was just thinking about this if you had won the top prize the last 2 draws (250K) how much would you toss back trying again? I would probably toss around $500 a week until the jackpot was hit.

I dont think it will get past this week though because all the people who normally dont play will be dropping 2-5 plays on QP's and every possible combo should be covered not to mention some syndicates will probably be covering huge amounts of the numbers as well.

Another question if someone from out of the country wins how do they figure the taxes? Is it from the state they bought it from?

    A couple people went to bed early last night in the $363 milllion thread, just wait to they

    wake up and see the jackpot is $476 million!!

    I was one of them. Found out when I was checking my email this morning and saw the USAMEGA jackpot alert in my inbox. Talk about an eye opener!

      I have only played "Jackpot" games since Pennsylvania started the Super 7 in 1986 ............. biggest win has been $100 ........... it is still fun to play ..............

      This is better than the Spanish El Gordo ............. we can have 1 Ticket with 1 Person win this kind of money!

      I am currently revising the escape plan ............ I need the money and you must let them give your name and town here in Pennsylvania ........... the press conference is not mandatory ............

      All property will be put into a Revocable Living Trust ASAP after I claim the prize. Lots of places to "hide" ..............

      FUN in the SUN  Sun Smiley

       and a big thank you to our fearless and famous leader:

      Todd Vader! 

      As long as the officials at the Lottery Office , meet you in person , check ticket other personal  what

      information they need ( driver license , SS , etc ) why the heck do we need the media . 

         That should apply to ALL states in USA .

          Winner will be all excited , thrilled , happy , etcccc , I know I would and I'm 100%

      ready to win .

        Definitely would not be a bad idea to look into it.

        Found an old article from Feb. 2000 in our own lottoreport run by Mrs. Nettles.

        Mr. Harrell was a former Pentecostal preacher and Home Depot stocker. Killed himself with a shotgun blast to the chest in his Kingwood' TX home in May 1999.

        Looking at his story and the story of Jack Whittaker would definitely be sobering to any jackpot winner(s) on Friday.

        It is all in your approach to life ........... the only extravagant thing that I have ever done is to help my children through 7 years of college (so far)...........

        I only spend a modest amount on PB and MM ............ no other gambling.

        Putting your assets into a Revocable Living Trust and having homes in multiple States will maintain a modicum of privacy. My main residence would be in a gated community that has multiple private clubs.

        It is possible to stay out of the media .............. the biggest winners in Pennsylvania have lived in obscurity for the most part ............

                  Just finished reading all the threads from 11:00PM last evening on to page 7. (pheww!  Blush ) Went to Bedearly.

                   

                  Holy Cow!!! This is just delightfully INSANE!  Crazy To some of you guy's that dropped $1000 on last nights drawing, did you get any good hits?

                  How much are you in for this Friday? I'm definitely pushing forward. I will keep it at $20, same as last night. 10 self picks, 10 QP's.

                   

                  I predict this will be adjusted upwards at least TWICE  by this Friday evening. Probably to around $550-600 Million!!! ($390-425 Million cash)   Yes Nod

                  I Agree!   It is hard to phantom that the previous largest cash jackpot was $240 million ($380 mil annuity) and this current one will most likely have a cash option exceeding $400 million!Eek

                      dpoly - can you tell us where that "lakeside dream" is located? I zoomed in the picture.  That's beautiful.

                      Just dreaming myself too.

                      A fist full of dollars, some quick-picks and a dream...
