I meant to say how will my press conference last when i win? how long will  it take to receive my money?

The Press Conference shouldn't last too long, BBLL. It probably depends on your personality and presence. Personally, I intend to flip up me kilt and give the mainstream media the old Scottish Salute.

You'll probably get your money in about 2 weeks.

Good Luck!

      Just out of curiosity can you tell me who the is in the mainstream media and who is not and can you define their differences? What makes one particular news source mainstream and the other not?

          GambleToRamble....There was a show idk if it was Lottery changed my life, but one man bought a multi-draw ticket I don't remember for how many draws but I believe it was over 7draws, and on the last draw he won a huge jackpot.....I don't rem if it was PB or MM. I hope that helps.  Good luck to all.No Pity!

           

          Half a Billion...I have been good I do deserve the jackpot.Party

          I appreciated learning from your knowledgeable response, Halle99!  This past 14 months, I had been wondering the same thing as GambleToRamble was above.

          I also wish that there was a website that began showing a chart of MM and PB first and second place winning tickets and if the ticket was:  multi/advance draws, random #s, chosen #s, powerplay or megaplier option added, purchased city, purchased state, and total $ cost of ticket.

            The msm is all the major news networks outside of FOX. They include but are not limited to, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC and others. They control well more than 90% of the market.

            They used to report the news somewhat fairly decades and decades ago but now seem to be merely a political arm of the Left if not an outright, in-your-face cheerleading squad.

            FOX NEWS, as well as Conservative Talk Radio was born out of the frustration of patriotic Americans at the lack of fairness and balance in reporting the news. They give both sides of the story, not just the side that makes the Left look good like the msm does.

              man this thing markets it self, ever news outlet got a side note about it if not full story.

              lottery ceo's could not be more happy then they are now, this is their dream in sells

               

              i like one part"

              Lottery directors from participating states will confer every day this week to determine if sales merit pushing the winnings projection higher, she said by phone Wednesday."



              also, i love seeing all new players,  am buying about 20-25 tickets my self for this draw, about same going out to movies/snack combo prices for me, so i don't feel its to much.

                Yes, joshuacloak, it's a good way to run your 'budget math,' -- trade one form of Entertainment for a different one this draw.

                This is my lucky 500th posted thought here!  I'm additionally motivated to win the PB $500M jackpot now!

                  Always listen to your gut and the professionals..if anything else take 25 % of the AFTER-tax winning(lets say its 40 million dollars), stick it in an account someplace that gets you 2-3 % interest over a year and never touch that $40 Million. EVER !! You can live off the 2-3 % interest....Remember,2-3% interest of $40 million is between $800,000 - $1.2 million every year.....Not a bad paycheck...even for a young college lad. Wink..Good luck on Friday.

                       CDanaT..........Good Advice

                   

                   

                               I just read  advice about being famous and what best to do when you've money . It doesn't surprise me

                          what money can do to people . Then , You wonder why , they say , take 30 days before turning in your

                          ticket , to figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life .

                               I know one thing , I ready to win the lottery , but I'm not wanting to become famous , I rather live

                          off the interest . I feel when you go out and buy a mansion , luxury cars , that's when you overspend.

                             I used to watch those Tv shows where people would go out and buy nonsense stuff , "statues "

                           and other crazy things . I feel it's a waste of money.  I'm a practical person , I like the basic items .

                              I feel making sure your family taken care of as far as education , mental needs , shelter ( 2,200 sq ft home )

                            or smaller , food , clothing ( not over the top ) , and NOT spoil them . You get the idea .

                              I understand everyone is different , when it comes to there needs or wants..........
