yikes that is alot of money... what would you do with so much that you wouldnt do with say... the 50M from powerball tonight?

after 50M... all my family would be set for life... then its 'where to give it' -- i dont want to take away anyone's desire/ability to work... just want to give everyone the opportunity for a PHd

There so are many charitable causes I would like to help out. Then there is my absolute dream jet, the Gulf Stream V, which can accommodate

up to twenty passengers. That would set me back at least $40 million. That would still leave me a few hundred million, but I wouldn't be complaining!

 

The most precious thing the lottery gets you is TIME!  Banana  Time to do, go, plan anything, or anywhere you want.

          If you are going up I-75 to Georgia to get you tickets, I suspect you better go today because those convienace stores on the Lake Park exits are going to be a mad house.  I suspect by Friday all their lotto machines will have melted down.  Wouldn't doubt it will be this way all the up to Valdosta, and even Adel.

          Be sassy and be happy.

            Illinois Lottery...I want to WIN this jackpot Friday to help plug your budget deficit.  And Papa O, let me win so it can help you knock a little chink out of your deficit spending.  Now give me my $238 million after tax winnings!

            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!

              WOW!  This is awesome.....Anyone that has an idea of staying anon. after a jackpot should forget it for this monster.  Sorry but the media is going to be after you like white on rice.   Also this makes me think about the way Powerball has been always messing with the game trying to improve it while megamillions leaves the game alone and players get good results....Kind of like gov't (the more they interfere the worse things get!)  LOL.    I have to go stand in line now for some LUCKY tickets!!!!!!Banana    If I win it's going to be one heck of a weekend.

                THE LOTTERY 50/50 RULE= PLAYING THE LOTTERY IS A WIN/LOSE SITUATION NO MATTER HOW MANY TICKETS WE BUY.

                 

                 

                BUYING 1 LOTTERY TICKET GIVES YOU A 50/50 CHANCE OF WINNING A LOTTERY JACKPOT.

                 

                 

                THE SHOTGUN PLAYING METHOD TO WINNING A LOTTERY JACKPOT.

                 

                HITTING THE TARGET.

                 

                when a shotgun is fired all those pellets that are crammed into the cartridge spread out so it's easier to hit the target.

                 

                 

                 

                Yes you can increase your chances of winning by buying more tickets, but every single ticket will go against the Odds of 1 in 175,711,536.

                 

                 

                "Thrifty is right, each individual ticket (one line of numbers) is up against the very same odds, 175,000,000 to one."

                 

                 

                "There is one, and only one set of sinning numbers drawn - not one set of winning numbers drawn for each line played."

                 

                 

                 

                THE THREE PLAYING METHODS WITH A LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT.

                  1) PLAYING MORE OFTEN FOR LESS LINES.

                  2) PLAYING LESS OFTEN FOR MORE LINES.

                  3) PLAYING LESS OFTEN FOR LESS LINES.

                 

                A LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO BE A SUCCESSFUL LOTTERY PLAYER OVER THE LONG RUN.

                 

                "A LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT IS VERY IMPORTANT and I urge anyone that plays to have a stop loss limit to protect their large sum of ready gambling money. You should have a stop loss limit to avoid losing too much money on a bad day. While setting up a loss limit is a great idea in theory, there are plenty of gamblers who won't have the will power to stick with these limits. These are the same people who will never make any money or come close to breaking even in gambling. It's definitely hard to stick with loss limits because there is so much temptation to keep gambling no matter which way Lady Luck is sending the money. The better you are at sticking with your loss limits over the long run, the more successful and happy you will be at the end of game play."

                 

                 

                PLAYING THE LOTTERY MORE OFTEN FOR MORE LINES=  SPENDING MORE MONEY=  GAMBLING ADDICTION.

                PLAY THE LOTTERY SOMEDAY-IT IS OKAY TO DREAM!

                  Don't know if I could stay anon, but I will certainly give it my best effort.  It is a certainty that I will go straight to the airport and hope a plane to some place out of the country and just out of the way in general.

                          I hear ya Peter......How would you be addressed in the media ???, More attention than I care to be a part of..Definitely would have to move into new  rental place before I collect. Get a new cell number.I think I may rent a motorhome ahead of time to drive up and collect the big ticket on a Friday. Be on the road for a few weeks or a month

                              OH my gawd!

                              Tax calculator sez  $204,749,056.75 cash after taxes!

                              That would make me the most popular person on the block.

                              Mitt Romney says net worth is about $200 million  :-)

                              ...and unfortunately

                              • The person with the most reporters camped on their front lawn.
                              • The person getting the most phone calls from charities.
                              • The person with the most new long lost relatives. 
                              • The next most likely person to get their home burglarized. 

                              Any winner of this thing would do best to claim it quietly.

                              ...or if not possible, do it with dignity like Mrs. White did and then... "Get the hell out of Dodge!"

                              $221.9M in my own state after taxes, I have a hard time wrapping my head around such an amount. A responsible winner would never have to worry about paying the bills again, thats for certain!Dance
