and putting it in a safety deposit box at the bank means the ticket is 100 percent safe? What about if the bank catches on fire? What about a crooked bank employee trying to steal your ticket during the 4 months your waiting for election day? Yes I'm aware the odds of those scenarios happening are astronomical but think about it this way, you just won Powerball meaning you beat astronomical odds (1 in 175223510) in order to win. Something happen to you despite astronomical odds once, who's to say it won't happen again? I'd collect that money ASAP and deal with the media later.

well for starters, the vault is fireproof.  nobody would know you put the ticket in there unless you told them and you would sign the ticket immediately so nobody else could even cash it.  you would take some photographs to document its your ticket.  finally, cameras would catch him stealing it.

    Aww c'mon now brat, your a kill joy.  Razz   What are your big plans........to hook up with some "Bubbly Blondes".  Wink   Lovies

     

    One can have fun without being foolhardy.  Spending about a third of your post-tax lump sum on a jet is not an investment most people would make.  That combined with the other "plans" you have sounds dangerously similar to so many of the "I blew my winnings!" stories we hear.

    I'm not saying don't enjoy yourself, just be careful, that's all.  Even a jackpot this large isn't unlimited wealth.

      Thanks for the spelling correction,

      I am aware of the meaning, I was refering to the fact that there are "many" important phrases in the constitution,

      not saying it is in the constitution.

      Ah, I must have misunderstood your post, then.  My apologies.

        Well, good luck everyone. I never check my numbers until the morning so that I don't go to sleep depressed, but I can't help it tonight.

          MC56,

          Get ready for mediabrat to point out that you used "your" instead of "you're"

            the laws are going to be different for every state but from what I read, the name that's signed on the back of the ticket, is the name that will be given to the media.

                All set for the drawing here in less than an hour. Gonna take me about an hour or so to check all 500 lines. From past experience I will probably win at least $70 or so. Good luck to everyone!

                        I got one number. Let's see this baby roll for another shot on Saturday.

                        Good luck to you!  If it rolls, it will be over $500,000,000  To whoever the jackpot winner is when it hits, follow these rules and you will be golden.

                        1. Stay anonymous

                        2. Take the CASH option 

                        3. Claim the winnings through a tax lawyer in a blind trust.

                        4. Be smart and prudent. Invest wisely with a financial team of advisors.

                        5. Enjoy your new "1% wealth" status!

                          Basically the same here. $10 worth of tickets, and I got two numbers on different lines.

                          Good luck to all those on this board.
