      Well her prenup will be worth only 30million over 30yrs or 1million over one year. if the marriage deteriorates bellow a c class marriage a devorce will be activated but she can only keep a percentage of time she commited on her remaining 1million annual value. for example if she stays for ten yrs that is 33 percent of 30yrs so she will still get only 33 percent of what she has left which is 33 percent of 20million  which is 6.6 million balance back and her remaining 13million will be offered to a new wife replacement to complete her default or me not being happy with good reason. my home will have 24hr video survelance so all good and bad will be properly preserved for a reasonable judge to see. so i can't end the marriage unless she is really really crazy and if that is the case then there should be a video tape .And it will be a fun and trouble free marriage if any of us breaks that rule or cheats or fight there will be a one million dollar fine for first offense another one million for second offense and automatic divorce after three strikes you out. lol

          If you want to buy a wife, you might as well get a foreign mail order bride.

              The current cash value of $203.3 milion is 66.66% of the anuity value. A 30% increase would bring it to $264.3 million. If that cash value remains 66.66% of the annuity value the advertised annuity jackpot will be $396.5 million.If that's the range MUSL thinks is reasonable they might just advertise it as an even 400, since that will probably create a much bigger frenzy than 396.5, even though they're practically the same amount.

              Oops, my bad. I was using the numbers from the 2/17 draw (the last $300m+ drawing) for my calculation. You are right here. The only thing is assuming the next rollover increase would be 30% since the last was only about 19%. I'd venture to guess that it's likely to be more than 19%, but the rollover increases have been a lot lower since the $2 ticket came into affect.

                Practically the same amount? Are you kidding me, here is 3.5 mil we are talking about. I would gladly keep the change between the two and will never even think again about playing.

                Though I understand, this is all in comparison to to the amount itself, but believe me those guys won't give you any single dollar for free.

                I know I might sound crazy, but sometimes when I don't win even $4 for while, I get to think that they falsify the game to the degree that they pick the numbers for lower payout even for the lowest prizes.

                  I'd like to win just enough to retire, while away my days in the garden.

                  No more racing around, no more watching the clock, just the simple life. I'm tired.

                          Okay, you statistics experts.  What's the probability of a roll this time?  The probability of one, two or three winners?

                            73% probability of rollover. 86% chance of one winner. 53% chance of two winners. 6.535% chance of three winners. 99% chance of this is all B.S.  Wink

                              Yeah but you gotta spend $10, so that would never happen.

                              I AM THINKING SMALL.

                              I bought a $10 Powerball ticket and received a free $2 Powerball ticket with it.

                              I will not mind winning at least $10k.

                              Good luck everybody.
