    After having a $640M Mega Millions draw not too long ago it's hard to reach the level of excitement we had this year but "finally" we have some excitement!! I'm more than happy with this drawing.

    Powerball: $181M!!

        The Powerball is stingy with their increments after the $100 Million Mark. Had this been Mega Millions it would have been well over $200 Million by now!

         

        I hate this new Powerball game, but I'll play my $2.00 for the chance to win anyway..lol

            dpoly1,

            Don't forget...  you'll still owe another $12 million in federal income tax.  So net is about $80 million...  which is still very nice!!

            I have until the end of the year to mitigate the remaining 10% in Federal Taxes.

            The $92,250,000 is the amount that a Pennsylvania resident would receive from the Pennsylvania Lottery in a wire transfer after winning.

            I am more than aware of the current Federal 35% tax burden.

            Charity will help mitigate this burden.

                Exactly! A good tax attorney can help with that extra 10% problem.

                 

                Good luck everyone! I'm still working on getting my tickets for Saturday. White Bounce

                    Hey mcginnin! Yes it's been a while. I hope all is well.

                    I've been reading all the articles and post but most of the articles made me nervous because they were all about lottery fraud or people making bad choices after winning huge amounts of money. It makes me think "be careful what you wish for".

                    But this jackpot has made me wash all my fears away again and now I'm excited!

                    I've enjoyed your post and photos too!

                    In the meantime: Come on Powerball!!!

                        you know somebody is probably going to play those numbers now lol.  i like the first line because of the high numbers, different than all the other lines.

                          Wow, I never thought about that HiFi! That would be something if those numbers came out LOL! Those aren't my numbers but I'd be upset if they came out and I didn't play them. Mad

                              I really could care less about the magnitude of the jackpot.  Wake me up when my ticket matches all 6 numbers drawn..then, and only then will I get even remotelyexcited.

                              I agree. I use to get excited, but not anymore. Now, when all those numbers match, then I will put on some music and dance my ass off. Until then, I'm cool.
