    Powerball is back down to 40 Million. Now lottery players can buy Mega Millions tickets for $1 and play for 45 Million or buy $2 Powerball tickets and play for $40 Million. Which would you pick?

    I probably will do both.  The second prize is 1 million in PB, this is the major factor for me.  And by the next drawing or two, it will certainly outpace MM anyway.

      The bubble has burst.  May that/those Michigan resident(s) spend his/her/their newfound riches wisely.

          Yes, 1 winner in Michigan. Somebody is now very rich. I am going to buy my tickets tomorrow for the new $40 million Powerball jackpot. Will probably get $10 worth, 5 lines. $13 million after taxes is nothing to sneeze at.

            That high is over. I didn't get a single number.  PB should go back to one dollar because of all that crap about more winners in more states is just that, crap. How many times has Michigan one this thing?

              One person winning $320 million. Gutted and jealous. Why do I care!? Man...looks like it's back to Mega for a few draws.

                      Can't believe someone from michigan stole my money. I bet is an office pool and I bet it's another quick pick.

                          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.

                          Hmmmm........now your making me re-think my "dangerous plans" for blowing my winnings.   Roll Eyes

                          I heard Gulf-Stream is running a "Special" this month. Buy two "Luxury Edition" G650''s at full price, and get the third for free!   Idea

                            For the better and worse of it, I'm a devoted PB/wPP player... averaging $15 (5 lines) per game, $30 per week.

                            (.. the coat of many sponsors doesn't sound so nutty when it's down this low, now, does it? milking it out more than kiss, the kardashians and hello kitty combined... along with looking back on a few (so far failed or neglected) election promises of local representatives, making a public reference to it while throwing a donation to groups that represent that failed promise (countrymen lend me your ears... ) while building one's own brand name... diverting attention and building (personal social/corporate) interest. Whatever the payout... it's never quite enough. I might be with Patti Smith and William Elliot Whitmore about free money..  but I'd want to build my own interests (fortune) too... although still not necessarily by spending, investing or getting loans on just my dime either. 

                             

                            and if only that I live in a small town (edge of civilization and the rural boonies), suffering enough employment loss and real estate woes that even a small investment/donation or diverting state/national interest (for supporting the troops, the tribes/band, the religious or addressing the state's chief export -- it's children, elderly, and other disenfranchised social minorities.) it's way would be enough to justify spending that much for even the second tier prize.

                             

                            That and it keeps things simple for the flat mates when I'm the only one playing it, and likewise they're dedicated to their own games. Still having a convoluted and delusional plan also balances out the scheme for the great unlikely of winning much of anything. A bit more space to dream, an excuse to join the site and fap away about various dreams... or schemes. So yeah, a three dollar shot for PB all the way.)

                            In the end, you are exactly--what you are. Put on a wig with a million curls, put the highest heeled boots on your feet, yet you remain in the end just what you are. - Mephistopheles
