Imagine how badly you're going to feel for those who are spending thousands and only two people will split this massive jackpot.

Gosh, I hope people won't spend that much! All you need is one ticket. 

I was thinking last night about people who bought hundreds of dollars worth of tickets. How do they check them all? And now you are saying some will spend thousands? Wow! I feel like a small-town girl!

    I say $425 million cash option. If I'm the lone jackpot winner, and it's under this amount, PM me and I will send you $100K as an apology. (honestly!)

        Does anyone know if its safe to buy tickets online and what would the taxes be on the cash payout? I'm from the Bahamas, i used to play when i went to Florida but they don't play megamillions and i won't be travelling before friday.

        Sometimes my numbers come straight, sometimes they come in reverse but mostly they come when I don't buy them.Wink

          That offer stands for Jill only. In fact a couple pages back, I upped that offer to $250K.  So I will receive only one PM if this happens.   Wink

            Don't even consider it, unless you enjoy having your money stolen and your hopes and dreams smashed beyond recognition.

              Illinois is the only state that offers an online option and with that you have to be a resident of the state. Any one suggesting otherwise is a SCAM ARTIST. Run as far and as fast as you can.

               

              If you really want to get in the game get a trusted friend or family member in a state that does offer the game to play your numbers or QPs and they can hold it or send it by courier to your country.

                    Good advice rad, hopefully they have someone here in the states to do that favor.

                      Yep I saw the uppage.  But I'm betting you will receive more than **1** PM.  Just a guess.  Poke

                      And on a related note:  dontcha think they could have put the 500M$ amount out immediately and instead are making a GREAT PR move by having an increase so early?

                          just saw this on the net. i slightly modified the last part.

                          Now, let's compare the odds of taking home one of those big jackpots to the odds of some other activities:

                          • Getting pregnant from a one-night stand: 1 in 20
                          • Getting struck by lightning: 1 in 10,000
                          • Dying in an airplane crash: 1 in 355,318
                          • Being dealt a royal flush in a given hand of poker: 1 in 655,750
                          • Dying from a flesh-eating bacteria: 1 in 1 million.
                          • Winning the mega million jackpot : 1 in What?.

                            Oh but of course, I get several daily. But all I need to do is scroll down to Jills PM, get her address and off the certified check goes (next day of course).

                             

                            I agree, great PR move! They will make another great PR move again late tomorrow or early Friday. These guy's are very, very clever in marketing!  Evil Smile

                              That means that there will be an early arrival in Middletown Pennsylvania!

                              I am hoping that they allow a small, perhaps $3,000,000 advance, to allow for the quick move to the hiding place!

                              Type

                              $3,000,000 unsecured might be tough but I have a sneaking suspicion that this current jackpot would definitely put your bank at ease.
